Let's say Google Scholar has a million matches for a certain keyword, but I only want to see the 100 most-cited ones. Is there any way to do this? (Note that "Sort by Relevance" doesn't accomplish this)

    Pretty sure Web of Science lets you sort by citations.

Not in Google Scholar. PubMed does not either. Both Scopus and WoS allow you to do that though. I'm not sure about other search engines or databases.

There was a similar question a few years ago: Is there an online engine like Google Scholar which allows me to sort the papers by citation count?. I'm not sure how up-to-date it still is but Dimensions and ScienceOpen should still do what you need.
