* 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]].

* About 500 years prior to the beginning of ''DragonBall'', a violent storm raged across the planet Namek, leaving only one Namekian on the ground and another escaped to somewhere in space. Even centuries later with asexual Namekian reproduction, there are only a few hundred Namekians left. During the Frieza saga, Frieza, his henchmen and Vegeta almost completely eradicate the Namekian race, aside from the Nameless Namekian who fled all those centuries ago, separated into the light side of Kami and the dark side of Piccolo. Piccolo becomes the only living Namekian on the surface alive prior to most of the race being resurrected by the Namekian Dragon Balls and transported by the Earth Dragon Balls, followed shortly thereafter by Namek's explosion.

* The Yozis in ''{{Exalted}}'' are trying to do this to creation, but it only falls into this category because they're not going to kill all humans. If the Yozis were to succeed it would be worse than a Class Z.

* [[EarthShatteringKaboom The Shattering]] in ''{{Bionicle}}'' is implied to have reduced the population of Sphereus Magna, and significantly decreased the amount of resources available, resulting in a ScavengerWorld where villages have to fight for supplies.

* In ''Anime/SoRaNoWoTo'' a big war against what appears to be aliens results in civilization taking several steps backwards. There are a lot less people around, and few of them knows how to use the remaining technology that was state of the art 200+ years earlier.
* ''[[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Gundam X]]'' is a Class 1 disaster due to the Seventh Space War's conclusion. Nearly all the Colonies used a ColonyDrop on Earth, sending it into a seven year Nuclear Winter. However, 15 years after the War, everything is stabilized and despite taking place AfterTheEnd, it is upbeat and hopeful.

* ''Anime/GenmaWars'' is set in a distant future Earth where humans were dominated by a demon race known as the Genma. Society has been pretty much destroyed, technology is medieval with a few pieces of lost technology laying around and humans live as badly-mistreated slaves ''at best'' and literal cattle ''at worse'' under their masters. Its revealed that [[spoiler: their downfall was actually engineered by the Genma themselves, who have infiltrated the government and other positions of power during the modern times, conspired to initiate a nuclear war so they could rule over the ashes]].

** ''After that...'' The protagonist of {{BLAME}}! is searching the the ginormous sphere for people with genes to turn off the chaos. He must deal with all the preceding crazy things mentioned (and more). Thankfully he succeeds in his mission (though the series ends right before it is directly shown).
