* In YuYuHakusho, Hiei was a male fire demon that was born among a female race of ice demons. Males can only be born to ice demons if they were sired by an outside male, which is forbidden. According to the ice demons' beliefs, males bring destruction, so the elders had him thrown off a cliff. This is what caused him to want to destroy the ice demons, but it was subverted in the end. Why? Because when he finally found them, he realized that the ice demons had very pitiful lives, so decided that [[CruelMercy leaving them alive was a worse punishment]]. No wonder Hiei has a lot of social problems.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': [[spoiler: Bill Cipher was apparently born in the flat second dimension (hence his triangular state), but he thought it was boring, so he 'liberated' it, the same way he's planning on [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt 'liberating' Gravity Falls.]]]]

* The player character of the UsefulNotes/PlayStation game ''VideoGame/{{Summoner}}''. Arguably, twice. Before the game, when he was still a young boy, the player character used his summoning powers to defend his hometown, which was swiftly destroyed when the demon he summoned broke free of his control. The second time involves the "tutorial" level of the game, where the character's new hometown is destroyed by the invading forces of the enemy nation, in a war touched off because the [[BigBad emperor]] of said enemy nation received a prophecy that the Summoner would come and slay him, so the emperor decided to kill the Summoner first. [[spoiler: This, of course, turns out to be a self-fulfilling prophecy, and the emperor turns out to only be a [[TheDragon mid-game boss]].]]

** At least in the SNES version(not the Bowlderized "FFII", though maybe even there), Mist wasn't actually destroyed: you can return via airship.
*** You can return to Mist in ''every single version'' of FFIV. Problem is, the only version that shows any damage to the town after the traumatic event is the DS version, where you can see the damage to some of the houses.

* Psycho Mantis from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' destroyed his home village during what can only be described as a psychic temper tantrum.
** [[spoiler: Discovering your father blamed you for your mother dying in childbirth, generally hates you, and harbours the secret desire to ''kill'' you, would make the resulting trauma amount to a bit more than a tantrum.]]
*** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'' Laughing Octopus [[spoiler: was forced to participate in the massacre that killed everyone else in her hometown by personally torturing her entire family to death.]]

* In {{Summoner}}, Joseph destroys the town he was born in in an attempt to save it, by summoning the Demon of Darkness to crush the army currently auditioning for the job. The demon [[LiteralGenie decided not to stop after he'd slaughtered the army.]] This is why Jekhar, Joseph's childhood friend, now hates him. Joseph's second DoomedHometown (dude is an overachiever) is also a source of guilt, since the army which destroyed it was after him, but he didn't do it himself.
