** Exterminatus was ''supposed'' to be [[GodzillaThreshold an absolute last resort]] after every effort had been made to prevent the planet falling to [[TheLegionsOfHell Chaos]] or [[TheHorde Orks]] by conventional means, but {{Flanderization}} and SerialEscalation have resulted in it being used far more often and for pettier reasons. (Though not as much as MemeticMutation might lead you to believe.)

** The fate of the glassed colonies is also mostly not touched upon in the sequel games. Despite the destruction of most of the UNSC colonies and the loss of most of the human population the UNSC is powerful and prosperous, almost like there never was a war.

* Used to hilarious extremity in one episode of ''{{Superfriends}}''. Black Manta has just caused a fire on an island. Aquaman summons sea creatures to create a giant tidal wave to put the fire out. Only it backfires and he ends up accidentally flooding not only the island, but ''every coastline in the Western Hemisphere''. Aquaman and the rest of the Superfriends are rather unalarmed at the massive death toll. (Earlier in the episode, several major U.S. cities were completely frozen, but this too goes without comment.)

* ''Anime/FullMetalAlchemist'', [[BigBad The leader of Homunculi]] enacts this twice. First during 400 years before events of the manga to the country of Xerxes, [[spoiler:as he does it to get himself a body and sentience.]] Second during the "Promised Day", he takes [[spoiler:lives of nearly 50 million residents of Amestris[[note: The very nation was created for this very purpose]] to gain the body of God.]] Thankfully, the second time, [[spoiler: it doesn't stick.]]

* TheSpectre, TheDCU embodiment of God's Vengeance, slaughtered the entire country of Vlatava while the country was in the midst of a bloody civil war between ethnic groups. He claimed that no one in the country was free from the hatred that drove the war, and even the children and infants would grow up to repeat the same cycle of violence.

** 4's Miletos plays this extremely straight. No playable character comes from there and it was given only one passing mention in the first generation's backstory, and it practically only exists as a springboard to [[spoiler: invade Granvale]].

* TheDCU event "[[OurWorldsAtWar The Imperiex War]]" went with this trope. Several planets, like the planet Daxam where a group of Kryptonian colonists lived, were destroyed. A couple of galaxies, like Maxima's home galaxy, were destroyed. When Imperiex reached Earth, he destroyed several cities, like [[Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} the kingdom of Atlantis]], and what was probably the most impressive to the audience, Topeka, Kansas.

** Another Turtledove short story about aliens conquering chunks of Earth, ''Vilcabamba'', mentions that Spain was left uninhabitable by the aggresive mining techniques employed by the invading Krolp. This is a deliberate choice, because the story is [[{{Irony}} a loose retelling of the Spanish conquest of the Incas]].
