** In the old ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' cartoon, {{Wolverine}} once sliced up his alarm clock with his claws before he could actually think about it. When he woke up a little more, he said something to the effect of "Hate it when I do that."
** In an even older ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' comic, Kitty Pryde used her tendency to fry electrical equipment she "phases" through to the detriment of her clock-radio.

* ''StrangersInParadise'' had Katchoo go through a new alarm clock every day, often with a large-caliber bullet from a gun she kept under her pillow. She accumulated a large pile of ruined clocks before the RunningGag faded from the series. Interestingly, the story included a DreamSequence that explained, in heart-wrenching detail, ''exactly'' why Katchoo is so upset at being awakened.

* ComicBook/AchilleTalon once tried to get an annoying transistor radio to shut up by smashing it against a rock and feeding the pieces to his pet duck. Unfortunately, the radio kept working from inside the duck's belly.

* Implied in ''ComicStrip/LeonardLeGenie''. While HeavySleeper Basile was never actually shown demolishing his alarm clock, some bedroom scenes show it smashed by a large hammer, or simply with an "out of order" sign on it. Unfortunately for him, his BadBoss usually wakes him up by much less orthodox and more violent means...

* A similar incident takes place in ''ComicBook/SpirouAndFantasio'': a miniaturized radio with the volume turned to the maximum is swallowed by the {{Marsupilami}} and lodges itself in his nose, where it keeps working until the marsupilami, exasperated, punches himself in the face.
* In ComicBook/ReidFlemingWorldsToughestMilkman, Reid begins a Monday morning by hurling his alarm clock at the wall. When that fails to silence it, he leaps on it, cursing, throws it into the toilet, and then urinates on it.
