* In ''VideoGame/Fallout3'', ghouls can sometimes be radioactive enough to become living conduits of radiation, can emit bursts of it at will, harming people and healing ghouls. Even dead, they're still emit a few rads while you're close enough to loot the body.

* The very presence of Sir Darkly, from ''SushiPack'', causes everyone in the vicinity to instantly burst into tears, and wherever he goes flowers wilt, ice cream scoops fall off of cones, seesaws break, and water even freezes.

* Also in VampireTheMasquerade, this is canonically attributed to Caine, the first Vampire, who was cursed by God to wither plants at his passing in punishment for the murder/sacrifice of Abel. There's also a Flaw "Touch of Frost", which does exactly the same - and is viewed poorly by humanity-seeking Kindred, and positively by Noddists and Vampires on the [[PathOfInspiration Path Of Caine]].

* ''TabletopGame/IronKingdoms'' gives us the Blight ability of dragons, which twists the world nearby: living creatures mutate, and people additionally become crueller and more loyal to the dragon's goals. Because dragons in the IK are universally weapons-grade assholes, they view this as awesome and cheerfully call up armies of Blighted minions, such as Cryx's Satyxis raiders and Blighted Ogruns, or basically everything fielded by Everblight.

* A recurring villain of ''{{Grossology}}'' is Kid Rot, who due to a science experiment gone wrong causes everything around him to decay. In his initial appearance, he was a very sympathetic character and eventually discovered that things he rotted made for a compost that caused things to very rapidly regrow. However, this was dropped by his second appearance where he became less heroic and more insane.

* Creator/AlanDeanFoster's ''Journeys of the Catechist'' briefly featured the living essence of corruption, aptly named, Corruption. One character hits Corruption in the neck with his sword, which promptly rusts and rots away in seconds. A similar being, called the Drounge, was encountered in the third book. Descriptions of it's travels before encountering the heroes tell of mysterious plagues, withered crops, and epidemics. Even touching the thing rots away all the flesh on one character's hand.

* [[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.
