* [[spoiler:Gildarts]] from ''Manga/FairyTail'' specializing in "Crash" magic, which destroys anything he runs into. He's actually pretty nice, but he's so [[TheDitz absent-minded]] that he runs through building so often the town decided to change their landscape so he had a clear path through.
** [[spoiler:Zeref]] uses [[spoiler:Death Magic]], literally killing anything in his vicinity, [[spoiler:unless he gives up all concern for human life]], but you're still probably screwed anyways. [[spoiler:Just look at Hades]].

The only way he can avoid this is by completely disregarding the value of life...in which case people around him are screwed anyways. [[spoiler:Just look at Hades]].anyway.

* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', Poisonwitch is a type of [[MakingASplash Waterwitch]] that's capable of turning water around them toxic, which results in poisoning rivers and fields and killing people, plants and animals. Interestingly enough, by and large they're not considered a case of BadPowersBadPeople, and the PraetorianGuard of the Marstoki Empress is composed entirely of Poisonwitches.

* In ''Fanfic/HopeForTheHeartless'', part of the [[OurLichesAreDifferent Horned King's]] [[TheDreaded dreadness]] is based on his aura of death. It's strong enough to cause him to kill any plantlife just by coming near it, and any living creature fears him instinctually, with animals going mad if they're close to his aura for too long. Even those who are used to it feel its choking effects. [[{{Mordor}} The ground and lake of the lands around his castle are lifeless]], and the sky's permanently covered by red clouds. Even after [[FertileFeet Avalina]] slowly brings life to the Horned King's lands with her extraordinarily strong aura of life, he retains this deadly aspect. [[spoiler:Eventually he loses this trait when he's brought to Avalina's garden for the first time, signaling his further progress in achieving redemption.]]

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has had a few prestige class options that allow ''players'' to become these if they wish (though they can also be used for npc villains), such as the Walker in the Waste, a mobile desert generator, who eventually could become desert-spreading Dry Liches.

* In the fantasy strategy game ''AgeOfWonders'', the Undead Reaper unit leaves a trail of wasteland terrain in its wake. Similarly, the Frost Queen unit blankets the ground with snow, and the Reaper's opposite number, the Nature Elemental, turns other terrain into fertile grasslands.

* Subverted in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' with chaos champion Aekold Helbrass, cursed to spread life with his every footstep and played straight by Nurgle and his minions, who wither crops and sour milk with their passing.

to:

* The titular characters of ''TabletopGame/BeastThePrimordial'' are a variation; if they neglect to feed on fear often enough, then their Horror (the astral entity that is simultaneously their soul and an entirely separate spiritual twin) will go rampaging through the dreamscape, resulting in plagues of nightmares and bad dreams that bedevil everyone in the area until the Horror manages to feed enough to sate itself. It won't kill anyone, but it certainly has a drastically nasty effect.
