* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'''s Derek Powers, being a walking piece of radioactivity whose proximity was both toxic ''and'' hot enough to soften metal. When making his first appearance in his superpowered form, he delivers a BadassBoast which provides the page quote.

Powers is also a great case of irony, since he was already a "blight upon the land" when he knowingly and illegally dumped toxins in the environment in his position as a CorruptCorporateExecutive. His subsequent tranformation is really the metaphor made literal.

Added DiffLines:

* The 'Exemplar' Decay, basically an avatar of the demon/god Valdorr - one of the Octessence, eight powerful magic entities who are sometimes invoked by magic users - caused whatever his hands touched to decay into dust; whether he intended to or not.
* Jude, the Entropic Man, apparently an embodiment of entropy created from the remains of entropy cultist Yagzan by the Cosmic Cube, can theoretically cause anything he touches to attain complete entropy, which in practice means it desintegrates - but he never does this.

* Gildarts from ''Manga/FairyTail'' specializes in "Crush" magic, which destroys anything he runs into. He's actually pretty nice, but he's so [[TheDitz absent-minded]] that he runs through buildings so often, the town was forced to mechanically change their landscape so he had a clear path through.

* ''LightNovel/IsekaiShokudou'': Black Queen/Kuro is a dragon who uncontrollably releases death magic, killing and disintegrating weaker beings. She was forced to exile herself to her world's moon to spare the inhabitants. Eventually, she is transported to the restaurant and transformed into an elf, and no longer has this problem.

* During the Columbian Exchange, everywhere the Europeans went in the Americas, waves of disease followed, with casualty rates in the tens of millions. The resulting depopulation caused societal collapse throughout the western hemisphere, which led to the overgrowth of wild plants and animals in places that had been carefully cultivated -- i.e., the better part of both continents. Why the European diseases were fatal to Native Americans and not the other way around is because of the variety of animals Europeans raised and were exposed to diseases from, like smallpox. When people with no prior contact with such diseases encountered a carrier of it, mass death ensued.

* [[BiggerBad Nekron]] from the ''[[RhapsodyOfFire Dark Secret Saga]]'': When he finally conquered the elvish valleys, his mere presence caused the spontaneous death of all the plants and trees. To drive it even further, even the rivers dried out or turned in disgusting swamps.

** Walkers in the Waste are a subversion of the way this trope is normally played as they have gone out of their way to devote themselves to the desert and the ability to spread it across the world in the desert's ultimate gift to them. At least thats the [[FlavorText flavor]]/story aspect. Once they gain the ability, they have to be consciously suppress it in order for it to stop, every turn (for the small mechanical cost of a free action per turn). You forget to tell your DM your using a free action to have the ability off that turn, you have your mini desert back. So its not like a switch which stays the way you leave it.

So its not like a momentary switch which stays the way (one that's only engaged as long as it's held down); you leave it.have to remember to keep holding it "off".

* Many of the Shadow Dragons from ''Anime/DragonBallGT'', specifically Haze Shenron (spreads pollution), Nouva Shenron (his body is hotter than the sun, so anything that comes near him disintegrates), Eis Shenron (he freezes anything near him), and Syn/Omega Shenron (he emits negative energy that corrupts and kills entire planets, and eventually the universe).
