* The major BigBad of the series, the Con-Human [[MasterComputer super-computer]] from ''[=RayForce=]'' and it's prequel ''[=RayCrisis=]'', almost single-handedly wipes out all of humanity when it started to malfunction. The [[AllThereInTheManual manual]] of ''[=RayForce=]''[='=]s PC port describes all the horrors it caused on Earth when it gone completely rogue; it caused natural disasters with the planet's [[WeatherControlMachine weather-control unit]], [[AlmostOutOfOxygen deprived the Earth of it's oxygen]] to suit it's own needs, and created temperatures that made the planet uninhabitable while [[OmnicidalManiac killing off those unfortunate enough to live on Earth]]. After taking over the Earth, all of humanity that managed to escape from the planet was only left with one option: Commence "Operation: [[TitleDrop RAYFORCE]]" and [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroy the Earth]]. The way it turned bad? It had been tasked with trying to figure out a way for humans to exist forever, and began breaking down trying to figure out a fool-proof way to do that. [[FromBadToWorse The situation decayed further]] when a mecha-neurologist [[CloningBlues installed a clone as part of an attempt to determine organic/inorganic entity compatibility]]. They were compatible, all right--the clone's mind entered Con-Human, and it reached the conclusion that there ''was'' a way to guarantee human existence. Namely, [[BrainUploading pull all the minds it can into machinery]], then protect the new inorganic lives by [[WellIntentionedExtremist erasing organic life]]. The worst part: It was a MAN-MADE [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters SUPER-COMPUTER]].

** The bad ending of ''[=RayCrisis=]'' is ''[[FromBadToWorse MUCH]]'' worse. [[spoiler:After witnessing your Wave Rider being snuffed out by the Con-Human, images appear briefly during the ending which mentions how the Con-Human wiped out all life on Earth and no survivors had a chance to escape, and then finally, it burrowed its way into the Earth's crust and took over the entire planet's core! The good ending isn't much better except that some humans successfully escaped, but Con-Human already took over the planet's core, bad enough that at the end of Operation Rayforce, when the core of Con-Human destroyed, EarthShatteringKaboom happens as well.]]

The ''RAY'' series isn't just a shoot 'em up series about piloting a space fighter capable of spamming homing lasers (or lightning depending on the game), it also shows us that the human race is capable of planetary disasters.
