* ''Manga/RaveMaster''. Technically, the world the story is set in is a parallel world created by the last surviving human after famine drought and plague destroyed the original world. The main villain, the only descendant of that sole survivor and, therefore, the only 'real' person, [[WhatAnIdiot wants to go back to that world]].

* ''Anime/{{Planzet}}'' is set in 2053 after a war with aliens has destroyed most mayor cities. Yet the army and Komoyo's school (in Tokyo anyway) are still running (though Taishi mentions that walking outside is risky because of bandits.)

* ''Anime/LaMaisonEnPetitsCubes'' doesn't specify but appears to be set in a time after some sort of catastrophic sea level rise. An old man lives in a rooftop apartment in what was once a large city that has become inundated by flooding. The flooding has been gradual, as the man has been able to add room after room to the top of his house over the years, creating a tall tower. Only a few building peaks show on what was once a city.

* ''Manga/SevenSeeds'' is set who-knows-exactly-how-many-years after meteorites have crashed into and doomed the earth. The earth went into a mini ice-age and is only now starting to be inhabitable again, with evolution repeating itself. The only remaining humans on Earth are selected teenagers (and adult guides) who were [[HumanPopsicle frozen]] shortly before the apocalypse.

* ''Manga/ViolenceJack'' by Creator/GoNagai is perhaps the first post-apocalyptic anime/manga. The series is set in the chaos after a massive earthquake and volcanic eruption leveled Japan and focuses on the survivors of the Kanto region, who are divided between the strong and the weak. It's noted for its over-the-top violence and brutality, and would serve as the inspiration for many violent anime and manga to come.

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is set in an unspecified future where humanity has been reduced to a handful of walled villages that are constantly under threat from roving giants that seek to eat them alive. The story follows the main defense force of the last city on earth as they seek to take the fight back to the monstrous Titans.

To prevent a repeat, a watcher race called the Celestials maintain and judge each city. At least one city was deemed unfit and shut down. Beyond the cities are seemingly just a scatter of primitive tribes (the remnants of said city comprise one).

** And the 2004 live action movie adaption: Casshern.



* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Future Trunks' timeline is this thanks to a pair of rampaging androids and why he comes to the main timeline to prevent it from happening there.
** It also happened three centuries prior to the main storyline when King Piccolo nearly destroyed the world leaving only Master Mutaito and his pupils to fend themselves. Piccolo was eventually sealed and Earth began to rebuild.
* In ''EL'', the Megaro Earth Project is implied to be the last remaining city populated by humans after nuclear war devastated the Earth. At the end of the second OVA, it is revealed that the situation is far worse [[spoiler: as only El and a single human male have survived, kept in a coma-like state by sentient AI hoping to find a way to breed them.]]



* ''Literature/FromTheNewWorld''



* ''Anime/GenesisClimberMospeada'' (another show that became part of ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'') has humanity on Earth reduced to a few small scattered pockets by the Inbit.

* In ''Manga/KuroganeCommunication'', Haruka is the [[LastOfHisKind last girl on Earth]] ([[ThereIsAnother or is she]]?). Luckily, her robot sidekicks are always there to help her out.

The human civilization which created the monsters was crippled by natural disasters, then the survivors fought an increasingly destructive war until Moo was created to be the ultimate weapon, except he decided to just destroy everything instead.

* In the backstory of ''Anime/TheMysteriousCitiesOfGold'', Mu and {{Atlantis}} fought a nuclear war that wiped out both empires (as well as most of the rest of humanity) and almost all of their uber technology.
* Possibly ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. Between the severe levels of schizo tech, the bizarre structures in Rain country, and the wreckage that the Uchiha weapons stash appears to be located below, it's never been explicitly stated but it would explain a lot.

The creators of the franchise eventually wanted to show a much cheerier image of the post-apocalypse after the big victory, however, by having the capture of a Zentradi satellite factory helping humanity to not only rebuild, but to colonize the stars; as shown in ''Anime/{{Macross}}''[='s=] [[Anime/MacrossPlus many]], [[Anime/{{Macross 7}} many]], [[Anime/MacrossFrontier many]] [[Anime/MacrossDelta sequels]], humanity and its allies has been mostly thriving in the many decades since the end of the original series, with multiple colonies and fleets spread across a good chunk of the Milky Way.

The human civilization which created the monsters was crippled by natural disasters, then the survivors fought an increasingly destructive war until Moo was created to be the ultimate weapon, except he decided to just destroy everything instead. The last few survivors barely managed to create the Phoenix and defeat Moo. By the time the series takes place, civilization has returned to a Medieval level with occasional SchizoTech.
* ''{{Anime/Megazone 23}}'': Long ago, the Earth's climate collapsed under the weight of humanity's abuse. Humanity left in generational ships, of which only one survived to return.
* ''Anime/TheBigO'' is set in a city which was built after an unknown event caused mass total amnesia. Everything else is believed to be barely-inhabited wasteland.
* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is set in an unspecified future where humanity has been reduced to a handful of walled villages that are constantly under threat from roving giants that seek to eat them alive. The story follows the main defense force of the last city on earth as they seek to take the fight back to the monstrous Titans.
* ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' in the second half of the story, due to [[spoiler:the death of the Pillar]]. Everyone in the country has been moved into a tiny castle surrounded by crumbling wasteland being eyed by foreign invaders.
* In ''Anime/NeppuKairikuBushiroad'', a poison later known as "Shinobi" came to our world from space, after which despair took over, with the people being driven to a place known as "Kairiku". The only things left that can save humanity are a mysterious human weapon by the name of "Yagyu", and the holy weapon "Giga Road".
* ''Manga/{{Gigantomakhia}}'' is set, at least according to the title page, [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale one hundred million years in the future]]. The world has been turned to [[DesertPunk lifeless desert]] by a cataclysmic event, where "[[CataclysmBackstory the stars fell from the sky, the earth erupted, and the world was covered with ice]]". Humans and animals alike have had to adapt to living in the desert world, creating new species like "[[AlluringAnglerfish sand anglers]]" and [[PettingZooPeople demi-human tribes]], like the beetle folk, "the Scarabaei".
* The story of ''Manga/SnowWhiteAndSevenDwarfs'' takes place in a post-apocalyptic and isolated Tokyo (though it's implied that the rest of the world is fine), after meteors hit the city two years ago and destroying a fair amount of it.
* Due to a virus wiping out most of humanity and vampires showing up to enslave them, the world of ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'' is left in this state.
* ''Anime/{{Planzet}}'' is set in 2053 after a war with aliens has destroyed most mayor cities. Yet the army and Komoyo's school (in Tokyo anyway) are still running (though Taishi mentions that walking outside is risky because of bandits.)
DownerEnding.

* ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' (one of the main shows to be incorporated into ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'') has its penultimate arc end with most of the Earth devastated by a Zentradi fleet, with the surviving humans and their "cultured" Zentradi allies forced to rebuild civilization afterwards; Macross City is the new capital, built around the SDF-1, with homes, shops, schools and offices, and situated in a barren Alaska, with other cities miles away (possibly around Canada and some of the USA, although it's not specified where each city is located). The creators of the franchise eventually wanted to show a much cheerier image of the post-apocalypse after the big victory, however, by having the capture of a Zentradi satellite factory helping humanity to not only rebuild, but to colonize the stars; as shown in ''Anime/{{Macross}}''[='s=] [[Anime/MacrossPlus many]], [[Anime/{{Macross 7}} many]], [[Anime/MacrossFrontier many]] [[Anime/MacrossDelta sequels]], humanity and its allies has been mostly thriving in the many decades since the end of the original series, with multiple colonies and fleets spread across a good chunk of the Milky Way.
