* CityOfHeroes destroyed the Galaxy City zone as part of a new issue release. The destruction was actually shown in the tutorial level, and the hero would choose to become a hero or villain based on how he reacted to a downed hero. It was largely done to allow for the hero classes to be made as villains and vice-versa and streamline the tutorial level better.

* ''[[Literature/TheBelgariad Castle of Wizardry]]'': When Polgara finds out that Garion, Belgarath, and Silk had up and left in the night, leaving her behind to handle things in Riva, she is so enranged that she takes out her sorcery-enhanced frustration on the luxurious suite set aside for her thousands of years ago. Her fury was loud but very meticulous: blowing up teacups one at time, then the saucers they sat on, then the table ''they'' sat on. When Ce'Nedra came to try to calm her down, Polgara gave her the letter Garion (recently betrothed to Ce'Nedra) wrote explaining what he was doing.[[labelnote:Why?]]He was actually heading off to fight [[BigBad Torak]].[[/labelnote]] She read the note and, believing everyone will take this as a thinly-veiled jilting, strode to her room and decided to trash ''it'', too, "screaming all the while like a Camaar fishwife."

* The [[ForeignRemake Dutch version]] of Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway known as "De Lama's" does this during its final recording. During the introduction, part of the backdrop partially came crashing down, and the rest of the destruction occurred during the final game after some scenery getting knocked over by accident made the whole thing escalate. One performer even grabbed a paint can from behind the set to write "See you next week!" on the wall. It was later mentioned in an interview that this specific recording was meant to be the ''second'' last episode to be broadcasted, the actual last episode having been recorded beforehand. The performers thought it would be funny to make it look like the studio was completely rebuilt just for one last episode.

* Typically, the ''Series/MythBusters'' will find a nice, empty expanse to perform their stunts, but once in a while they have to use actual locations, in which case they locate places where it's safe to do this trope (example: they performed their "Falling Elevator" test in a condemned hotel slated for demolition which let them undo the elevator car's safety and drop it 90 feet to the basement below). In the GrandFinale, they launched their test dummy Buster on a rocket sled into a brick wall at supersonic speed, completely disintegrating or vaporizing him.

* ''PunkyBrewster:'' The story arc "Changes" has Henry's photography studio destroyed by a fire. It leads to him collapsing from exhaustion and being hospitalized, which in turn leads to Punky being sent back to Fenster Hall.

* Happens every once in a while on ''HomeAndAway''. The Diner has had this happen several times, having been destroyed after an earthquake several years ago and more recently being burned down by some angry racist yobbos.

* Done in the ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' GrandFinale -- Gordy gets fired and resolves to catch the weasel once and for all, completely and totally demolishing the set with a large bulldozer and several other pieces of construction equipment. He succeeds. (It must be really tempting at the end of a school-related series--the producers and stars get to act out their adolescent fantasies of tearing apart the school....)

* In ''TheEricAndreShow'', the host lays waste to his talk show's set [[spoiler:in the ''opening'' of every episode. After he finishes, the set rebuilds itself in seconds. [[MindScrew The Season 2 finale is just the opening set-trashing for an entire episode.]]]]

* ''Creator/RoosterTeeth'' has, for their "LetsPlay ''VideoGame/Minecraft''", "Plan G", a bunch of dynamite buried underneath the courtyard of Achievement City. It's been used at least three times: once out of curiosity, once to stop one of their own from winning their match and once completely by accident when a Creeper detonated on the courtyard.
