In the ''[[BattleTechExpandedUniverse Twilight of the Clans]]'' series, a [[BigBad Clan Smoke Jaguar]] [=WarShip=] opens fire on the city of Edo in retaliation for a prison-break, killing one million inhabitants instantly. The [[AwakeningTheSleepingGiant entire Inner Sphere]] then proceeds to [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge kill every Jaguar warrior they can find]]. Once they reach the Jaguar homeworld, use their Warship's [[MagneticWeapons Gauss Rifle]] and [[LightningGun Particle Projector Cannon]] to [[CurbStompBattle completely destroy several battalions of Jaguar warriors]] as they gather for an attack on the Sphere's ground forces.

-->'''John''': Wormhole weapons do not make [[PeaceThroughSuperiorFirepower peace]]. Wormhole weapons...don't even make ''war''. They make total destruction. Annihilation. Armageddon.

* In the ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' comic, the Mandalorians [[spoiler: devastate a planet with good old-fashioned nuclear missles]] four thousand years before the movies. Makes you wonder why the Death Star was even necessary.

* The ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' has the Concept Killing Spear, the single most dreaded weapon in all creation. Created by a ChildProdigy to kill Love itself, it has the ability to [[RetGone erase whoever it kills from creation]]. This is played for every bit the horror as one would expect: when she killed [[DemiGod Cupid]] with it, everypony who existed because of Cupid was erased. This amounts to the single largest amount of destruction to the universe ever known until [[spoiler:Nightmare Eclipse repeatedly erasing an ''entire'' universe several thousand times]] finally surpassed it. That was the first and only time the weapon has ever been used. The deities took it and kept it stored in Strife's domain (one of the most dangerous locations in all creation) because even ''she'' (the Concept of ''Conflict itself'') believed it to be too dangerous to remain in the mortal world. [[spoiler:Rancor, while likely holding back, managed to mortally injure a fully powered Discord in one hit with it.]] It's so deadly that the only reason the Concepts didn't destroy it was [[spoiler:Destruction was dead and he was the only one capable of destroying it. Most of the time the moment they can do so upon regaining his power in some way, they do.]]

** ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals'' is ''slightly'' more grounded in reality: The Chinese have a single huge nuke that leaves radioactive fire in its wake, the GLA fire SCUD missiles a dozen at a time to create a big swamp of anthrax (that also kills vehicles, go figure), and the USA have the particle cannon, which sends a giant beam of science into the sky, bounces it off a satellite, and sends it back to the ground where it can be moved to attack specific targets or write insulting messages. Oh, and each faction can build ''however the hell many they want''.

** "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.
** "Silver Nemesis" had the Validium statue, which was capable of wiping out entire Cybermen warfleets.
** "Remembrance of the Daleks" had the Hand of Omega, which could rewire stars, and was used to vaporise an entire solar system.
