* The Realm Defense Grid from {{Exalted}} is the main protective measure Creation has against [[TheFairFolk the forces of the Wyld]]. In [[{{Precursors}} the First Age]], it was known as the ''Sword of Creation'', capable of redirecting elemental Essence from the entire world to nuke entire legions five times over -- but [[GodEmperor the Scarlet Empress]], who now is the only one with access, didn't want her subject nations to feel so threatened by her world-sized cataclysmic superweapon. Well, you know, it's a defensive measure; it just happens to have a bit of ''kill-everything-in-this-subcontinent'' applications.

* Lampshaded in ''RatchetDeadlocked'' with the Arbiter, so named because it was used to settle a legal dispute. When upgraded, it becomes the Silencer.

Uusally played straight, although a satirical work might play this trope for laughs (in which case the chances are high that someone will crack a "peace through superior firepower" joke). Compare ICallItVera.

* Both ''VideoGame/PlanetSide'' games have the Liberator; in the first game, it's a high altitude bomber capable of dropping [[RecursiveAmmo cluster bombs]] or tank busters. In the second, it's a gunship with a [[GatlingGood quad Gatling gun]] turret on the belly that can be [[CharacterCustomization swapped out for different cannons]]. The Terran Republic [[PoweredArmor MAX exo-suit]] can use the Mercy arm-mounted mini gun, and completing the TR's Assault Rifle Directive grants access to the T1A Unity assault rifle, "''a key weapon attributed to helping bring Earth together under the Terran Republic's harmonious rule.''"

* In ''Film/DangerDeathRay'', the titular invention is said to have been created for "peaceful purposes" by its inventor. Naturally, [[MysteryScienceTheater3000 Mike and the Bots]] pointedly ask why the heck you would call it that, if it was so friggin' peaceful.

* Some of the Advent ships in ''SinsOfASolarEmpire'' have peaceful, religious names. For example, the Illuminator Vessel "illuminates" others by hitting them with bright long-range energy beams. Then there's their powerful capital ships with names like ''Radiance'', ''Rapture'', ''Revelation'', and ''Halcyon'' (a mythical bird said to calm waves).
