** ''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''.

** ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3'': Proton Collider(shout out, anyone?) and the Sigma Harmonizer for the Allies, a nuclear-powered magnetic vacuum imploder for the Soviet Union, and a Black, schoolgirl-powered psionic SphereOfDestruction for The Empire of the Rising Sun.

* In ''Literature/TheMachineriesOfEmpire'', the most dreaded weapon in Kel arsenal is the treshold winnower, which essentially boils everyone within its range alive.

** "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.

** There was also the Temblor Bomb, designed with a similar use in mind. It seems having MarkHamill play the lead meant they had to plagiarize ''Film/ANewHope'' wholesale; at least they did it well.

* 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]].]]
