* ''[[Film/{{Batman}} Batman (1989)]]'' comes within days, perhaps even just ''hours'' of a Class 0. SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's [[DoNotAdjustYourSet televised]] BrandX stunt had an entire major city too terrified of being poisoned by household products to clean their bodies, or their clothes, or the ''buildings''... An entire city yanked back to TheDungAges. Fleas, ticks, lice... Eventually people would start dying of things besides the poison, which would have led to total panic. One good riot under those conditions would kill everyone in the city as Joker contaminated ''damn near everything needed to treat wounds on that scale''. After a few days without maintenance, restoring water and power would be a multi-million dollar effort. A ''[[NuclearOption nuclear weapon]]'' would do less damage, as at least that would be ''sterile'' - a few weeks after a mass organic die-off like that, all the bodies will have been devoured by vermin, resulting in a population explosion that would sweep the Eastern Seaboard, potentially completely depopulating the political, industrial and commercial heart of the country. Look up John Birmingham's ''Without Warning'' for an examination of the global effects of America effectively vanishing from the world scene. Batman broke the Joker's "poison code" just in time to prevent millions (perhaps even ''hundreds'' of millions or even '''billions''') of deaths. The original script was more clear about this, but [[ExecutiveMeddling the execs nixed a montage of filthy people fleeing Gotham.]]
* At the end of ''Film/CabinFever'', a Class 0 appears to have been narrowly averted, as the posse shows up to clean up after our intrepid heroes succumb to a flesh-eating virus. This lasts until we see the body of the first guy seen with the virus lying bleeding in a river, which is then harvested for bottled water, implying a true Class 0 or 1 somewhere down the line.

* Damien Richter's activities and a brief orbital bombardment with hypervelocity mass drivers destroyed much of the capital planet of Avalon in ''TechInfantry''. And the first [[BugWar Bug Invasion]] wipes out Rio de Janeiro and the surrounding area of Brazil two centuries before that.

** The sequel, ''Film/TwentyEightWeeksLater'', shows the reestablishment of a small community of merely 15,000 people in London and its destruction. [[spoiler: During the credits, the infected are shown escaping into Paris, suggesting that we may have moved into a Class 1. Or at least a much larger scale Class 0 (The whole of Europe).]]

* In TabletopGame/{{Greyhawk}}, this probably describes the Rain of Colorless Fire, a disaster that destroyed [[TheEmpire the Suel Empire]] millennia ago. Not many Oeridians currently alive know what happened, but most assume the Suel did it to themselves when attempting to do something ''very'' evil.

* In a unique case of ''literal'' Societal Collapse, virtually the entire population of the Yugoslavian city of Podujevo dies when the giant humanoid figure they've [[TheWormThatWalks assembled themselves into]] topples over in Creator/CliveBarker's "In The Hills, The Cities". The fate of their one-time rivals in the city of Popolac is not stated, but given that they too are amassed into a giant humanoid figure that has ''gone insane'' from the horror of Podujevo's fate, it's unlikely that city fared any better.
