Consider a nonlinear wave equation in three space dimensions with zero mass together with a negative potential. If the potential is sufficiently short-range, then it does not alter the global existence of small-amplitude solutions. On the other hand, if the potential is sufficiently large, it will force some solutions to blow up in a finite time.
