If you're in need of a destructive instrument, er... bomb, wouldn't a dark energy driven device be more appropriate?

BTW, I'm no expert/physicist, but a big rip style bomb would seem to be more, umm, explosive.

Looks like this discussion has drifted off-topic from the OP:

I've seen "dark matter bombs" portrayed in some science fiction movies, but is this actually scientifically plausible?
... a perfectly legitimate question to ask here in the "Science Fiction & Fantasy" subforum.

Please, let's stick to real physics and not science fiction unless we are talking about a story or novel that wants to ignore real world physics.
Exactly. We're either talking about real science, or we make it clear that we are talking about fiction.

I had also said that we can't exactly do that.
Actually, at Physics Forums, we do exactly that or we don't post here. Consider it our forum's Prime Directive, if I may borrow a phrase from a popular old sci fi show.
