* The effects of a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_vacuum#Vacuum_metastability_event Quantum vacuum collapse]] would take this form, as an sphere of destruction expanding at the speed of light from its origin - and because of that speed, [[NightmareFuel anything in its path would be unable to see it coming]].

* The [[spoiler: Dr.Manhattan-based [=WMD=]s]] in ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'' work like this, at least upon initial detonation.

* In theory any explosion in space or similar event (supernova, nova, etc) would fit this trope. In practice, interactions with the interstellar medium, different speeds of the ejecta, presence of a companion star,etc. make the remnant to have other shapes. However there [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SN_1572 are]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IC_3568 some]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simeis_147 exceptions]] (more or less).

If a supernova is a dying scream, a planetary nebula is a dying whisper[[/note]] (more or less).

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Exosquad}}'s'' second season, J.T. Marsh's E-Frame is equipped with a Solar Flare, and expanding field of energy that destroys anything caught in it except the E-Frame generating it. When he uses it in battle, it carves out a neat curve in part of a mountain caught in the edge of the effect.

Added DiffLines:

* Shows up in the ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' film series, most prominently in ''Film/ResidentEvilAfterlife'', as a spectacular self-destruct system used by Umbrella in their bases. The device itself is about the size of a briefcase but generates an expanding blue sphere of utter destruction that seems to work more like a black hole than an actual bomb, sucking in everything it touches in a roughly kilometer-sized area until it reaches its maximum range and dissipates, leaving nothing behind but a (mostly) perfectly circular crater.
