* WesternAnimation/StevenUniverseFuture: In episode 14, it's implied, and later confirmed by WordOfGod, that this is what [[spoiler:Steven's pink mode]] is, as it gives him any abilities he might need to escape a dire, life or death situation. The problem is, it's been triggering when it isn't needed because, in his current state of mind, every bad thing that happens to him feels like a life or death situation.

*** Admiral Stenz believes that utilizing nuclear weapons is the least costly way of dealing with the [=MUTO=]. He's aware that they feed off of radiation, but believes the sheer strength of the explosion will be enough to kill them, noting that, while the H-Bomb didn't kill Godzilla in 1954, it's a firecracker in comparison to what is at their disposal six decades later. (Weirdly the Castle Bravo bomb dropped on Godzilla was actually 15 megatons. This is stronger than any bomb in our aresenal today and is the most powerful explosion America ever produced. The "this is megatons, not kilotons" line is just wrong.)

Situations of this nature include the WillfullyWeak character giving the WorldOfCardboardSpeech and turning the PowerLimiter off, using the ForbiddenChekhovsGun, [[LethalHarmlessPowers using lethal powers]], turning to the NuclearOption, or casting SummonBiggerFish. When begged, the AllPowerfulBystander may even be willing to lend a hand. In video games, this is the time to use items that are TooAwesomeToUse.

* ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/7763281/chapters/17904586#workskin The Tony Stark Squad]]'': Bruce Banner signed the Sokovia Accords only after making a deal that the Hulk wasn't to be called for anything less than the threat of global extinction.

Added DiffLines:

****Rodgers throw is made even more awesome when you realize he did it AGAIN to Jeff Janis in the division playoff, taking the game to overtime (where they lost). it makes him the first person to do it successfully twice in a season.


* In ''Disney/FrozenII'', once Anna realises that [[spoiler:the dam]] is the cause of all their problems, she goes to [[spoiler:wake up the stone giants to trick them into destroying it]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/{{SAPR}}'': With no time or possibility of reinforcements, Pyrrha and Jaune [[spoiler:release the supposedly-repentant Cinder from stasis to help them stop the corrupted Amber from taking the Relic of Choice]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAndHarleyQuinn'' has a downplayed and somewhat [[ParodiedTrope parodied]] example with Harley's "Nuclear Option": [[spoiler: she takes off her makeup and starts crying in front of Poison Ivy, which immediately makes her drop her evil plan and [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes give Harley a big hug.]]]]


* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', Superman makes an alliance with Lex Luthor to defeat the Justice Lords.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'':
**
In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', Superman makes "A Better World", the League has to fight the Justice Lords, their KnightTemplar parallel Earth counterparts who have no compunctions about killing or lobotomizing their enemies. Batman notes that, even if the League aren't willing to sink that low, there's no way they can win unless they do ''something'' unexpected. They resort to making an alliance with Lex Luthor Luthor, and allow him to defeat walk free with a Presidential pardon once the Justice Lords.Lords are defeated.
** Green Arrow and Speedy's "quantum arrows", which are only to be used in an emergency. When used together, they create an explosion powerful enough to create a small ''mushroom cloud.''

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11265467/1/Petrification-Proliferation Petrification Proliferation]]'': upon learning that [[Franchise/HarryPotter Slytherin's monster]] was a basilisk, Dumbledore ''shuts down Hogwarts'' for the remainder of the term, evaquates the students and informs the DMLE, who promptly recalls every Auror and Hit Wizard aside the bare minimum patrol from Azkaban to inspect the school for nests and eggs. This is because, for the quite small population of the Wizarding World, a single basilisk is effectively the equivalent of a ''nuke'', and had the beast managed to kill the students before being slain the effect would have been worse for them than the nuking of London would be for the Muggle United Kingdom-hence it being illegal to ''not'' report a basilisk sighting and the British Ministry mobilizing everything they had to make sure there weren't any more at Hogwarts.

Added DiffLines:

* In a non-genre example, a TV reporter mentions in the wake of Joe Gallo's death in ''Film/TheIrishman'' that Little Italy, where Gallo was killed, had long been considered neutral territory by the mob as a whole, implying he should reasonably have felt safe there.[[note]]In reality the restaurant where he was killed was, unbeknownst to Gallo, owned by a mobster in a rival family that wanted him dead at the time.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Disney/FrozenII'', once Anna realises that [[spoiler:the dam]] is the cause of all their problems, she goes to [[spoiler:wake up the stone giants to trick them into destroying it]].
