* In ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZIM'', ZIM slapped alien video goggles onto everyone to show them the horrors that would befall the earth [[DisproportionateRetribution if they didn't buy candy bars from him]]. The scene was only aired in full once, shortly before 9/11, and was subsequently edited to no longer show [[FunnyAneurysmMoment New York City in ruins]].

* In ''SagaOfTheSwampThing'', the resurrected Anton Arcane rants about how he's going to bring the worst of the damned back into the world, inciting chaos and a literal Apocalypse. Scenes of havoc wrought by those he's already unleashed provide a literal "storyboard" of the kinds of hell Arcane would've spread around the world, had he not underestimated [[strike: Holland]] Swamp Thing.
