* In [[http://qntm.org/?structure Fine Structure]] ([[http://qntm.org/?power Power of Two]] being the first in the arc) the Powers gain their power when they're hit by a very painful lightning bolt that makes them go berserk for about fifteen seconds. One of their superpowers is speed, so a lot of people can die. Also, that website started as a howto on [[http://qntm.org/?geocide destroying the Earth]].
* Nocturn, the warlord Ehlek's lieutenant in ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' got sent to The Pit for "breaking" his island in a fit of rage. When the author Greg Farshtey got asked why he did this, he answered: "People break things when they get angry. Nocturn happened to break his island."
* ''Literature/RejectionAndRevenge'': Osama Bin Laden gets his hands on some warheads: one of his targets: Riyadh!

flashback shows Saffron City Gym Leader Sabrina destroying her house with her psychic powers as a child.child.
** Practically every animated adaptation of [[OlympusMons Mewtwo's]] backstory includes the image of it wreathed in flames in the remains of the Pokémon Mansion/whatever lab is used to create it, and possibly atop the corpses of those who'd been working there. There's a reason this guy is TheDreaded.

* In ''{{Carrie}}'', the main character kills everyone at her prom, the two kids who had humiliated her, and [[spoiler:her mother]] after prom night goes horribly, horribly wrong for her. They wanted to have her destroy the town, but didn't have the budget. In the remake, the damage is more severe.
* At the end of ''[[Series/TheAddamsFamily Addams Family Values]]'', [[spoiler: Debbie reveals this is what she did to her parents, because they didn't buy her the right Barbie doll for Christmas.]] The Addams, naturally, are quite understanding.

In the movie itself, Optimus states that he's willing to sacrifice his own life to destroy the All Spark, if need be. Some characters think it's noble. Others think it's disturbing...
** In the third film, Bumblebee is the one who [[spoiler:destroys the Space Bridge control, resulting in Cybertron's destruction]].

* In StarCraftII, Vorazun is the one to voice the option to destroy her homeplanet, Shakuras, rather than let it fall to the Zerg. Artanis initially wanted to refuse the idea, but he went along with it, and they detonated the planet with over a billion Zerg on top.

* In the ''[[BlackCompany Annals of the Black Company]]'', the man known as "Erin [=NoFather=], an unlanded priest of the god Vancer from Slinger, in the kingdom of Vye" eventually became the [[BigBad Dominator]]. Of course, by that time he'd made sure to wipe the town of Slinger off the face of the earth, and kill everyone who had lived there while he was growing up, to prevent any of his enemies learning his [[IKnowYourTrueName true name]]. Later he [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill laid waste to all of Vye]].
* Literature/TrappedOnDraconica: Pre-story Zarracka summoned an emperor class fire ghoul [[spoiler: in a desperate bid for hero-style praise and attention]] that almost trashed Britannia's capital. In the main narrative she is vital in Baalaria's victory over said capital.

* In Manga/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.
