[[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.]]

* The world of ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'' is currently in a Class 2 state, with humans reduced to primitive tribes, and the ruins of a much more advanced human society being all around them. [[spoiler: Turns out, this is the result of Project: Zero Dawn, designed to reseed the Earth after the [=FARO=] robot swarn inflicted a ''ApocalypseHow/Class6'']]

* In Literature/TheBible, The Great Tribulation. Exact numbers are unknown, but the description "Mortals will be rarer than the gold of Ophir," combined with Revelation detailing the fact that over half of the population will die from the war, famine, plagues and various other disasters, and most of the Christians will be beheaded, burned or starved to death, while none of the unbelievers survive Armageddon means that you could expect maybe one out of a thousand people who enter the Tribulation to come out alive, perhaps a bit more.

As the Second Coming immediately follows, the difference between live and dead humans at that point becomes inconsequential.

* ''Film/DawnOfThePlanetOfTheApes'' is closer to this than Class one, given that [[spoiler: 90% of humanity is wiped out and what's left only exists in small pockets. At least one is running out of resources.]] What's more, [[spoiler: Koba]] aimed to pull a Class 3A apocalypse, leaving apes the dominant species. [[SequelHook He may yet succeed]] [[spoiler: even though he's dead.]]

* ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'' has a mix of this and Class 3a, [[spoiler:depending on how long Valentine was intending to leave his hand on the machine it could have been a Species-Extinction event, except for the few hundreds he selected and people living in remote areas without electronic devices. In any case a societal collapse was guaranteed. The movie leaves ambiguous [[InferredHolocaust how far it went]]]]. [[spoiler:Presumably not very far, since Dean and his mates survived]].

The teaser trailer for [[Film/KingsmanTheGoldenCircle the sequel]] implies that it's actually more a Class '''1''', since society seems to have bounced back. Will be updated once the film premieres.
