* In ''Webcomic/QuentynQuinnSpaceRanger'', the Empire of the Seven Systems responded to the (admittedly rather brutal) slaughter of one of their colony ships by ''incinerating an entire solar system.''

Did a wonderful job of convincing the enemy (who owned more systems) that war against them was not that great an idea after all.

** Jack's way of dealing with the prison guard was a tad excessive. Stabbing him once or twice would be logical, but stabbing him [[KnifeNut seven times, each time with different knife]], bashing his face against the steel door 89 times (until it became boring), cutting off his head and sending it to the Queen of Prospit was definitely uncalled for.

** It does bear mentioning the above quote relates to an incident where the objective was to shut down a rival supersoldier program, and the method was [[spoiler:turn them into vicious and just-as-powerful zombies hostile to life]], which did exactly that and also made sure no one could ever visit that particular country ever again.

* In the Pokemon fan comic ''[[http://bato.to/read/_/295224/pok%C3%A9mon-dating-a-team-magma-grunt-doujinshi_ch4_by_mms-mechanical-scans/1 Dating a Team Magma Grunt]]'', Brendan uses [[OlympusMons Primal]] [[PhysicalGod Groudon]] when "[[CurbStompBattle fighting]]" against a Team Aqua Grunt that insulted his girlfriend (the titular Magma Grunt).

* In ''Webcomic/DatingATeamMagmaGrunt'' is a sequel to the Pokemon fan comic ''[[http://bato.to/read/_/295224/pok%C3%A9mon-dating-a-team-magma-grunt-doujinshi_ch4_by_mms-mechanical-scans/1 Dating a Team Magma Grunt]]'', events of ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' following Brendan uses [[OlympusMons Primal]] [[PhysicalGod Groudon]] when "[[CurbStompBattle fighting]]" against and his relationship with a Magma Grunt. When the Grunt is insulted by a Team Aqua Grunt Grunt, Brendan challenges her to a Pokémon battle and promises to use a ground type against any of her water types on the condition that insulted she apologies to his girlfriend (the titular Magma Grunt).if he wins. Sounds pretty tricky, right? Well it might've been had he not immediately whipped out a [[OhCrap Master Ball]]. [[spoiler: Cue [[PhysicalGod Primal Groudon's]] Sunny Day and a brutally torn up area with its footprints embedded into the cement.]]

** Actually subverted on one occasion, in which Schlock mocks two enemies for aiming anti-tank weapons at him. They tell him that they're not worried about a little overkill, to which Schlock responds, "OK, but you might want to use your anti-tank weapons [[OhCrap on those tanks behind you.]]" Incidentally this ''wouldn't have been'' overkill, he can't be killed by explosions if his friends find all the pieces.

** The Cloyster spell. It shields the surrounding area in a barrier that prevents most forms of teleportation, sending spells, and divinations from entering, though the spell's creator Dorukan allowed a loophole for summons so his girlfriend could visit. The spell's duration lasts one week per the caster's level, so an epic-level caster could be shielded for months at a time. And if someone left the Cloyster'd area, the effect would follow them as well.

* [[WebComic/EightBitTheater Black Mage's]] preferred form of attack - he has been known to vaporize forests, and at one point destroyed a city by accident when demonstrating to its mayor how he would destroy the city if he didn't get what he wanted. He has refrained from using spells in battles where his life was at stake because he viewed anything that wasn't complete overkill a waste of his time.
* [[VideoGame/EarthBound Jeff]] manages this with a ''single bullet'' in ''{{Chicanery}}'':

* Land Reclamation in ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent''. How do you make certain you got rid of all the monsters in the area you intend to colonise? First, you send in scouts, to map out the area and get a feel for where the monsters might be lurking. Then you send in Hunters with high-powered rifles to deal with all the ambulatory monsters. Then come the Cleanser squads, who use fire and explosives to destroy anything and everything a monster might use as a nest (usually it involves leaving the area a charred wasteland). After ''that'' you wait for winter, so that any missed monsters freeze to death, along with TheVirus that created them. '''Then''' you repeat steps 1-3.

send in the hunters again, this time along with specially trained cats and their handlers, to track down anything you missed. '''''THEN''''' you set up a palisade or electric fence around the area, so no new nasties can get in. And the worst thing? By all accounts, this isn't overkill in any way.
