Let's see:

  • The original Reinforce in A's has cast a city-sized Starlight Breaker (which, conveniently, caused zero property damage) - among other things. She is also a personification of an ancient magical artifact of ultimate power (Lost Logia), which had absorbed the power of dozens of mages and magical creatures - including Nanoha and Fate themselves. (In other words, she is a special case.)
  • Nanoha, Fate, and Hayate are powerful; but they're not that powerful. (Yes, in Movie 1st Nanoha was able to cast a Starlight Breaker that destroyed an entire simulated sunken city [though it's not clear just about how large the simulation was], but the movie is an in-universe semi-fictional work that slightly exaggerates Nanoha's true power.) They also DO need a permission from their commanding officers to release their full power.
This is better covered by Person of Mass Destruction.

Should examples of "Clarkian" style attacks/weapons be listed here? I'm specifically thinking of the Mai-Otome and Scrapped Princess examples, but there are others, because both those works make it very clear that the "magic" in the series is just "sufficiently advanced technology."
