Volcanoes that have produced explosive VEI-8 eruptions, often called supervolcanoes in the media. Such eruptions release a volume of at least 1000 cubic kilometers with annihilating longterm effects on the surrounding area and devastating short-term effects on global climate, leaving profound effects on the climate for years to come.

For smaller volcanoes that have erupted at least 100 cubic kilometers at a time, see Category:VEI-7 volcanoes.

No VEI-8 eruption has occurred in recent human history. The most recent such eruption is the Oruanui eruption that formed Lake Taupo, roughly 26,500 years before present.
