* On the other hand, breakthroughs in fields of cybernetics, biomechanical technology and genetic engineering could cause a "benign" form of this. Humans could alter themselves to such a degree, first physically (and maybe mentally as well) that they simply could [[Transhuman not be considered human any more]]. It would start with life extensions, organ transplants, cybernetic body parts, mind enhancing substances, and could easily progress to biological immortality, uploading one's mind to an artificial body that is not anthropomorphic, grafting tissues and organs that bear little to no resemblance to anything human or even eschewing physical form altogether and copying/transferring one's mind to a computer network. Provided we are not knocked back a few centuries or destroy ourselves/are destroyed, this scenario will likely happen eventually.

* Part of the backstory in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. A little over a century prior, strange beings known as Titans appeared out of nowhere and began to devour any humans they could find. The survivors have spent the last century living within three 50-meter Walls, with all information about the Outside World banned and mention that [[MixedAncestry mixed-race]] heroine Mikasa is the last surviving Asian suggest extinction of multiple ethnic groups. The surviving population numbers in the hundred-thousands, and is under constant threat of extinction from either Titans (if the Walls are broken again), starvation from famine and food shortages, or even civil war due to the corrupt and oppressive government. The series begins with 20% of the population being wiped out when the first of the three Walls is lost.

[[spoiler:However, almost everything just mentioned is later revealed to be a complete lie; while the island the main cast lives on ''is'' overrun with Titans, the rest of the world is filled with thriving human civilizations. In fact, the Titans themselves turn out to be just tools of the most powerful human nation.]]

* ''Film/IndependenceDay'': the invading Aliens attempt this on the human race after that they planned on colonizing and draining the resources of Earth with their Queen and move on. 20 years later they've become much more sophisticated by launching one giant ship to drain the Earth's core which will no doubt cause the same effect

* ''Film/IAmLegend'' revolves around one of these. Mankind is either dead or zombified to a man, except for Will Smith [[spoiler:and a few other people]]. However, the animals are doing just fine, and in fact have escaped the zoos and colonised the streets of New York. (There are ''lions''.) [[Literature/IAmLegend The original book]], however, is a 3b.
