** Or they can get particularly overexcited and inflict a ApocalypseHow/Class4 or even a ApocalypseHow/Class6 on their planet.

* ''Film/ThePostman'': It seems to be a class 2, since the townspeople ask about if Europe survived, but things are vague.

* ''Anime/MaiOtome'' seems to have been partially the inspiration for Class 2. Unlike it, however, civilization has already pretty much got back on its feet -- it isn't even apparent at first that there ''was'' an apocalypse.

* This is considered to be the best-case scenario at the hands of the [[AlienInvasion invaders]] by many of the townsfolk in ''Literature/TheTaking'', with only small pockets of humanity surviving on a radically altered Earth. They're right about the first, but not for the reasons they thought. [[spoiler:The invaders are actually TheLegionsOfHell, out to take the souls of the insufficiently virtuous, which apparently amount to most of humanity. Most of the rest are virtuous, but lack useful skills and are raptured as a result. This leaves only those who are both virtuous and skilled as well as the children of those who were taken to rebuild with the help of some ill-explained EasyLogistics hand-waved in during the last few chapters while the invaders and the apparent HostileTerraforming leave faster than they appeared.]]

* In ''Literature/StationEleven'', society falls when a plague wipes out a large portion of humanity and much of the rest dies due to the resulting lack of infrastructure, modern medicine, and so on. What little modern technology remains a couple decades later later is only there due to people going out of their way to preserve it. [[spoiler:By the end, humanity appears to be on a slow march back to modernity, with at least one community producing its own electricity.]]

* In ''FanFic/PrettyGuardianSailorPokemon'', Momo Kanda from ''WonderMomo'' reveals that with the exception of a domed Japan, her version of Earth has devolved into this due to an eruption at Yellowstone that causes the Earth to plunge into an Ice Age once again.

* In FineStructure, the ''heroes'' induce this scenario ''repeatedly'' to prevent another near-Class 3 event.

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'': Calvin worries an apocalypse will happen when Old Faithful erupts, blotting out the sun for more than 50 years. This is the minimum repercussion, inferring from his words.
* The ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'' reveals that the alicorns and draconequi 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]].
* ''FanFic/StarsAbove'': [[spoiler:[[EldritchAbomination Vittoria]]'s attack on Earth in the [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Madoka-verse]] resulted in a Class 2, verging on Classes 3 and 4 due to the damage to causality and the climate. Only one or two billion people are left, and every city and town is said to be in ruins. The Demons are now aiming for a Class Z.]]
* ''FanFic/{{Embers}}'': Part of [[spoiler: Koh the Face-Stealer's EvilPlan is this via supervolcano. The goal is a Class3a.]]
* ''FanFic/FalloutEquestria'': The main story is set after a near-total total collapse of the world's previous societies and nations caused by a war similar to the one seen in the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series.
* ''FanFic/GoddessRebornChronicle, [[Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei naturally]]. That it's ''only'' a Class 2 is a [[LighterAndSofter huge improvement]] from most of the mainline games.
* In ''FanFic/PrettyGuardianSailorPokemon'', Momo Kanda from ''WonderMomo'' reveals that with the exception of a domed Japan, her version of Earth has devolved into this due to an eruption at Yellowstone that causes the Earth to plunge into an Ice Age once again.
* In the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' fanfic ''FanFic/DominusMundiTheKingOfKings'', the destruction of the [[{{Atlantis}} Atlantean Empire]] during the event known as the Great Cataclysm led to the total collapse of society and made humanity return to its second pre-historic period.
* ''Fanfic/BesidesTheWillOfEvil'': The Deer War in the distant past was one of these, bordering on a Class 3a (Planetary Scale, Engineered Species Extinction). It was an apocalyptic conflict between the ancient deer and Reiziger's armies, with the destructive magic unleashed ravaging the world. It resulted in the collapse of the once powerful deer civilization and the devastation of the natural cycles, and the caribou, one of the six deer species, were completely wiped out.

* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', the [[OmnicidalManiac Endbringers]] are slowly inflicting this on humanity over the course of decades of regular attacks, destroying cities, killing superheroes, and wiping out infrastructure. Attempts to recover between attacks can mitigate some of the damage, but every character is aware that humanity is slowly becoming extinct, and there's nothing they can do about it.
** And as of the aptly named Extinction arc, [[spoiler:Scion has pulled a FaceHeelTurn and inflicted this scale of damage on multiple alternate earths.]]
