* In French film ''Film/TimeOfTheWolf'' humanity is in dire straits although it's never fully explained why. The audience only knows that the infrastructure has collapsed, uncontaminated water is scarce and livestock have to be burned. A nuclear disaster is likely. May be considered a Class 2.

* ''{{Terinu}}'s'' backstory has the Earth being subjected to an attack 500 years previously by the Varn Dominion using a titanic tractor-pressor beam to to destroy major population centers via earthquakes and tsunamis. This results in a Class 1.5 destruction as somewhere between one and a half to three billion people die in the initial attack and subsequent chaos. Australia was left intact with a functioning economy however, as a sort of human game preserve. In addition, the Vulpine suffered a 50% population loss as they were hit by the "Bloody Plagues" during the subsequent human led rebellion.
* ''TheZombieHunters'' [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture near-future]] [[AfterTheEnd Post]]-ZombieApocalypse setting finds the planet overrun by TheUndead, and the TheVirus ''did'' in fact serve as a DepopulationBomb. What [[EndangeredSpecies few humans remain]] cling ''very'' tenuously to Class 1 status, with the struggle to avoid ''[[InferredHolocaust becoming]]'' a full-bore Class 2 as a driving force in the plot. To keep their [[IslandBase Island]] [[PoliceState Military Base]] running, and the populace [[CosyCatastrophe cozy]] they [[FantasticCasteSystem depend]] on teams of [[TyphoidMary dormant]] ZombieInfectee DisasterScavengers (the eponymous "[[SuperFunHappyThingOfDoom Zombie Hunters]]") to [[ActionSurvivor venture]] out into "[[ScavengerWorld the Wastes]]" and risk getting [[ViralTransformation bitten]] to retrieve [[{{Plunder}} much-needed salvage]]. They only have two helicopters and a ship to work with. A handful of [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate doctors, scientists]], [[TheEngineer engineers]] and [[TheArmy Military]] are respectively trying to FindTheCure, keep the island's technological infrastructure running, and build a viable secondary colony on the mainland. The loss of any of these people or things, even a relatively [[WeHaveReserves expendable]] Zombie Hunter, represents a huge setback for the potential future of the human race.

* The ten year TimeSkip in ''Anime/GetterRobo Armageddon'' has humanity ravaged by the Invaders after a hydrogen bomb combined with Shin Dragon's Getter Beam saturates the Earth with Getter Energy, allowing the beasts to roam free.
* Earth at the start of ''SpaceBattleshipYamato'' is this, verging on class 4. Humanity is barely hanging on to underground cities, with the surface uninhabitable.

* In ''Litature/TheHaremGames'' some unidentified pathogen brings humanity to the brink of extinction by wiping out adult males and severely shortening the lifespan of existing male children as well as almost destroying the viability of male children in utero to the point that live birth is a newsworthy event. Futhermore, it borders on Class 2 due to the fact that the world government falls into the hands of a group of women far more concerned with retaliating against and, in their minds, preventing, the return of the abusive patriarchal societies they came from. They enact policies that make mankind dependent on artificial insemination, and force male teens to fight each other in a tournament until one is left, after forcing them into BattleHarems, with the consent of all all parties involved being a mere courtesy, at best.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' is set in a Class 1.5 scenario, due to Calamity Ganon overpowering Link, Zelda, and the Champions in their first battle, and virtually destroying the Kingdom of Hyrule. Though the kingdom itself has largely been erased for 100 years and horrible monsters freely roam the lands, far-flung towns and villages managed to escape the devastation and have mostly recovered.

* In ''VideoGame/AMindForeverVoyaging'', the 2071 simulation falls into this class. Your town of Rockvil has become the OppressiveStatesOfAmerica, as the [[CorruptChurch Church of God's Word]] has put a stranglehold on the town, turning it into a religious, totalitarian police state, and higher-echelon Church members are allowed to own slaves; your BrainwashedAndCrazy son Mitchell leads the raid as he arrests your wife Jill for "heresy"; you are suffering all kinds of ElderAbuse; almost all animals have suffered Planetary Multiple-Species Extinction due to starvation, neglect, and torture by [[KidsAreCruel religious schoolchildren who treat you like an animal and kill you by throwing stones at you]]; all the water is becoming polluted and undrinkable; food is quickly becoming scarce (and some restaurants are either becoming expensive or reserved only for Church members); strict rationing is in effect for poor-quality food available, since the ration card should not be used twice under penalty of death; [[DisproportionateRetribution innocent people are being brutalized and even executed for minor crimes]], and executions become bloody gladiatorial matches; buildings, churches, parks and a cemetery are becoming either empty or vandalized; [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and books and all kinds of entertainment are banned or replaced by religious hate films]].

** It does apply for the original Macross. Sure, after watching the macross sequels one tends to forget how massive the destruction was, but go rewatch the series, or take a look at the exploration of the devastated earth shown in DYRL (not to be disregarded because in both the series and DYRL Earth was in pretty much the same devastated state). Of course, being a Japanese show, they know they can quickly recover just like they recovered from the devastation caused by the two atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. However just like we cannot deny the effort they have put to recover from that, we can't either deny the desperate efforts of the surviving humans onboard the SDF-1 Macross to rebuild Earth and quickly put civilization back to acceptable standards.
