* In ''VideoGame/BloodRayne2'', an vampire apocalypse takes place when Kagan's Cult develops a gaseous substance that allows vampires to walk under daytime, causing them to emerge from the shadows and enslave humanity. While its implied to be a Class 0 Apocalypse, as the whole event appears isolated to one unnamed city, according to Severin all of civilization has crumbled in question of hours and the ending shows that humans were reduced to a few underground pockets lead by Brimstone Society.

* ''TechInfantry'' had the ''Exodus'' spin-off project, where a much larger catastrophe wiped out most life in the galaxy, and one planet worth of survivors quickly lost most of their high technology and regressed to a Medieval stage of civilization.

* Planet Aether teeters between this and Class 3 in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes''. The Lumionth, which were the dominant species of the planet, saw a meteor was going to crash into their world and everything they tried failed to deter the meteor's course while their efforts also strained the planet's energy. They took shelter and waited it out. The Luminoth survived, but the meteor's impact opened a dimensional rift and let loose a race of monster beings known as the Ing. The Ing fought the Luminoth in a great war for years and stole their technology and their planet's energy to use for their own ends. With the theft of the planet's energy in several regions, the affected regions suffered a total climate change (Agon was once fertile plans and is now a barren desert while Torvus used to be a forest and is now a swamp). Not only were the Luminoth's numbers greatly reduced, but Aether was on the verge of Class X destruction with the final energy controller being in U-Mos's hands. U-Mos had put the rest of his surviving people in a deep sleep until the day they'd win the war. Samus happened to show up in the nick of time (on a mission unrelated to the war) and managed to acquire the Energy Transfer Module, which the Ing was close to obtaining and would have sealed their victory.

** Additionally, this was one of [[spoiler: Mendicant Bias]]'s many threats of what he would do to [[spoiler:the Forerunners]] after he went rampant and [[spoiler:joined the Flood]], [[spoiler:which would more or less be DramaticIrony, since [[AbusivePrecursors the Forerunners]] had also done this a millennium earlier to Humanity]]. In a way, he did succeed; though [[spoiler:the surviving Forerunners managed to rebuild their lives in exile]], the various species they had saved from [[spoiler:the Flood and the Halos]] had their societies reset to the hunter-gatherering level.

* The ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'' reveals that the alicorns and draconnequi engineered one of these for the G2 world in order to [[spoiler: [[CosmicRetcon prevent the creation of the flawed G3 world]]]]. They brought this about by having [[PersonOfMassDestruction Destruction]] basically nuke the planet, causing the collapse of governments and the slow but steady decline of technology and culture back into TheDungAges. The ''7 Dreams/Nightmares'' collection shows this from the POV of the G2 Mane Seven, and it is [[NightmareFuel horrifying]].
