* 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.

** 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.

* Most ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games start or end up here. Some notable examples include ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI'', ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'', and ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor''. ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII'' takes place a century after one of these.

* The ''Franchise/DragonAge'' setting has the Blights, which are regular apocalyptic events where near-demonic creatures known as the darkspawn unite into a single horde and emerge from beneath the ground to overwhelm the surface world. These Blights can last decades at best, with the first one being the longest one in existence, lasting nearly two centuries as entire generations lived and died warring with the darkspawn and the most powerful empire of the world at the time being extremely weakened. Thedas suffered five Blights so far, but its civilizations have succeeded in rebuild themselves afterwards.

* ''TechInfantry'' has a large meteor strike the earth and render it temporarily uninhabitable, but by that point, humans have colonized many other planets, so the species survives.
* Coruscant in ''TheGunganCouncil'' had at least a quarter of its surface damaged and possibly even wiped out by a Death Star exploding in its orbit.

* The Second Impact in the backstory of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', which killed over half of human population, rose the sea level enough to submerge entire cities and heavily altered the climate. By the time the series proper begins, civilization has gotten back on its feet ns some places, but the almost complete emptiness of Toyko-3, the city the series is set in, is heavily emphasized during the series.

* ''Anime/GaoGaiGar FINAL'' shows an apocalypse between Class 1 and Class 2 due to the actions of the Soul Masters trying to steal all the Dark Matter in the universe. Hundreds of well known cities are in ruins, the ice caps melted, and there were apparently a lot of casualties. However, it seems civilization and humanity will definitely bounce back after a few months to years! All because of Courage!

* By the time ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' rolls around, humanity is at least in a position like this, with most non-earth colonies having been utterly annihilated, the entire remaining military capacity of humanity being about a dozen starships and a few hundred thousand soldiers, and the human population being reduced to less than one percent of its former numbers, about 300,000,000 according to the Bestiarium. If the Gravemind spared any of its unknown numbers of FTL-capable ships to spread the Flood, then not only will they easily overwhelm the entire galaxy, but the Ark, the only safe haven from the rings and the means by which the galaxy will be reseeded post-activation, has been severely damaged and is now inaccessible. If this is the case then either the Flood will absorb all life in the galaxy, or the rings will destroy all sentient life in the galaxy, making this a hybrid of a Class 3 and Class X-2 either way.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'': By the time ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' rolls around, humanity is at least in a position like this, with most non-earth non-Earth colonies having been utterly annihilated, the entire remaining its military capacity reduced to a handful of humanity being about a dozen starships and a few hundred thousand soldiers, fleets, and the human war having killed 23 billion humans out of an estimated pre-war population being reduced to less than one percent of its former numbers, about 300,000,000 according to 39 million. Nonetheless, the Bestiarium. If surviving human worlds are still able to maintain their high-tech civilizations, and after the Gravemind spared any of its unknown numbers of FTL-capable ships Human-Covenant War ends, humanity as a whole is in ''just'' good enough shape to spread the Flood, then not only will they easily overwhelm the entire galaxy, but the Ark, the only safe haven from the rings and the means by which the galaxy will be reseeded post-activation, has been severely damaged and is now inaccessible. If this is the case then either the Flood will absorb all life in the galaxy, or the rings will destroy all sentient life in the galaxy, making this a hybrid of a Class 3 and Class X-2 either way.start reclaiming their lost worlds.

* In ''Film/IndependenceDay'', most major cities are destroyed, but it seems humanity will survive... though it's debatable whether an InferredHolocaust has occurred, which would knock this film into the Class 2 range.

Resurgence which takes place 20 years later confirms that the humans used the Alien technology recovered from the City Destroyers to rebuild their civilization.
