* ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'' has [[OlympusMons The Ultimates]], monsters so powerful and hard-to-control that their replication is ''illegal'' even to replicate. They include [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/tormanshee.htm a fetus monster that can mind-rape you as easily as editing a computer,]] [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/hestermoan.htm a Nuckleavee-type creature that spreads disease and wiped out its creators so thoroughly that even their name is unknown]], and [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/mothneaser.htm a skyscraper-sized pillar of flesh with more methods of]] BloodyMurder [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/mothneaser.htm than you can shake a stick at]].

* In ''Videogame/{{Tyranny}}'', Kyros the Overlord was able to conquer most of the known world in part because they know how to cast Edicts. Edicts are spells of immense power that, when read, inflict horrific disasters on a massive scale. The Edict of Stone turned Cairn, the rebellious Archon of Stone (a powerful being in his own right which just emphasizes how strong Edicts are), into a living statue while turning the entire region around him into a barren wasteland that can't support life. The Edict of Fire turned the Vellum Citadel and the surrounding region into a LethalLavaLand as punishment for the Citadel's Sages hoarding forbidden knowledge against Kyros' law. Even the Sages' time magic could only suspend the damage, not prevent it. The Edict of Storms inflicted typhoon level windstorms and thunderstorms over the land of Stalwart which would continue as long as Stalwart's rebellious line of Regents still existed. A huge part of Kyros' power is the ever looming threat of an Edict. [[spoiler:The Edicts of Malediction and Nightfall which you can research later in the Spire Library are more subtle but arguably even more devastating curses: the first can inflict bad luck on entire cities and the second can trap them in [[TheNightThatNeverEnds eternal night]].]]

** "Colony in Space" had the Doomsday Weapon, a city-sized weapon capable of sending stars nova (according to the novelisation, it would fire vast quantities of antimatter at its target at a million times lightspeed). It turned out to be more damaging to its own planet, though; even on standby, its power system emitted enough radiation to poison the planet's soil and atmosphere.

** ''Film/GIJoeRetaliation'' has the Project Zeus {{Kill Sat}}s, which are capable of dropping giant metal rods from orbit, causing all the damage of nukes but with none of the fallout. Made even more terrifying by the fact that they're ''theoretically possible in real life''.

* The Molecular Disruptor, or "Little Doctor," in OrsonScottCard's ''EndersGame''. The MD releases a burst of energy that tears matter apart at the molecular level. At the same time, this process releases more of that same kind of energy, meaning that once it hits an object, that thing is utterly destroyed as the energy propagates throughout it. In deep space, it's relatively safe to use, as the energy dissipates over much of any distance, meaning it's unlikely to destroy more than one ship unless they're tightly packed together. Used on [[spoiler:a planet]], however...
