* In ''Literature/{{Fragment}}'', a reality TV show crew discovers a teeny, tiny landmass (only about two miles wide) in the middle of the Pacific Ocean known as Hender's Island. They subsequently then discover why no else has discovered the island before: the entire native ecosystem is a horrible eternal orgy of violent dismemberment and splattering death where the food chain breaks down and ''everything eats everything''. As it turns out, the island is a lost [[TitleDrop fragment]] of an ancient Precambrian supercontinent, and as the island got smaller over millions of years, the competition got ever more intense until it became a maelstrom of constant slaughter where the trees drink blood, the grass sprays acid, and the bugs are biological GreyGoo. The characters calculate by computer simulation that if even one organism from Hender's Island reached the mainland, life on all inhabited continents would be wiped out within forty years ''at the most''. Only those living on remote islands might be spared, because as it turns out [[spoiler: Hender's Island life-forms are [[KillItWithWater deathly allergic to salt water]]]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}'': Implied to be the end result of Groudon or Kyogre awakening and seizing total power for themselves. Kyogre would drown the world in a torrent of neverending rain, while Groudon would burn the surface into a bone-dry desert. Fortunately, not only are they in opposition to each other and evenly matched in strength, Rayquaza has been known to descend and force them into hibernation whenever they do start fighting.

* The Armageddon spell in ''{{Franchise/Ultima}}'', which is described in the fluff as destroying all life in the world, and when actually cast instantly kills all [=NPCs=]. Depending on the game, there may be two or three survivors, usually the [[PlayerCharacter Avatar]] and [[BigGood Lord British]].

* ''Literature/WeAreLegionWeAreBob'': When the Brazilians fired on the HEAVEN-1, this started a war. Every nation got involved, and China eventually destroyed Brazil by dropping asteroids on them. Riker and Homer arrive just as the last Brazilian warships are preparing to drop asteroids on what's left of China, which would render the Earth uninhabitable in weeks instead of decades. Once the warships are dealt with, Riker works to evacuate the fifteen million survivors, since it will take ten thousand years for Earth's biosphere to recover.

* The hallucinogenic fungus in ChildOfEarth ends up spreading to all organic matter until the mold growth is all that remains, having become the titular Child of Earth. (It's also speculated by characters that the lifeform first came to Earth as a remnant of a [[ApocalypseHow/ClassX Class X]] event elsewhere in the universe.)

** The Cretaceous-Paleogene (earlier known as Cretaceous-Tertiary) Extinction is the most famous. Probably caused by an asteroid impact, it killed 75% of all species, including the Dinosaurs.

* ''YTheLastMan'' is a 3.5, as every male ''mammal'' on the planet dies, save for Yorick and his pet helper monkey and two male astronauts in space. The cause has been vague, but options include an ancient curse or a [[ScienceIsBad biological experiment gone wrong]]. The comic even mentions that, 7 months after the disaster struck, the first species has gone extinct as its reproductive cycle has flown by. It should be noted that the actual short-term effects look more like a Class 1. The looming fact that this is the last generation as far as most of humanity knows barring serious reproductive breakthroughs is anything but glossed over. [[spoiler:Thankfully, in the DistantFinale, we see that Dr. Mann's cloning research has paid off, and it looks like humanity has made a mostly complete recovery -- complete with roughly the same political problems as before -- making this a Class 1 with a recovery period in the decades.]] In addition, [[spoiler:even after rats should have died out with no males to propagate the species -- almost five years on -- some are seen on the streets of Asia, which stuns Mann.]]
