* Accidentally triggering this early is what lands War in the mess he finds himself at the beginning of the game in ''{{Darksiders}}''. Oops?

* In one ''[[Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse Global Guardians]]'' story, the Guardians traveled to a world in which the criminal MadScientist Doctor XX had succeeded in eradicating all male life on the planet through a tailored virus. By the time the heroes arrived, the virus had died off... and the remaining human population (all female) had descended into MadMax-style post-Apocalyptic barbarism due to the sure knowledge that the human race was doomed to utter extinction.

* Wilbur Whateley's journal, in Creator/HPLovecraft's ''The Dunwich Horror'', contains several references to the Earth's life being "cleared off", presumably to make way for {{Eldritch Abomination}}s. Averted... but possibly still on the agenda of any surviving ''half''-siblings of Wilbur's.

* ''Literature/TheKillingStar'' begins with an interstellar bombardment of relativistic bombs pointed directly at Earth. The energy of the collisions causes so much devastation that almost all multi-cellular life is immediately annihilated.

* Clarke and [[StephenBaxter Baxter's]] book ''The Light of Other Days'' describes an enormous asteroid that's going to collide with the Earth; large enough that the heat released will more or less sterilize the face of the Earth, such that only the most basic bacteria can survive. It eventually transpires that [[spoiler:this had already happened once, billions of years ago, and the civilization that existed then hid away the life that would eventually evolve into us]].

* The Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse featured a prototype Death Star and the ''[[ComicBook/DarkEmpire Eclipse]]''[[ComicBook/DarkEmpire -class Star Destroyer]], both of which mounted a powered-down version of the Death Star's famous WaveMotionGun from ''ANewHope'', which could "only" "crack the planetary crust" and would likely result in something like this.

* The eventual fate of Earth in Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''Robots-Empire-{{Foundation}}'' novels, due to gradually increasing background radiation, which starts as a Class 0 event and gradually rises up to this level. It takes long enough that everyone eventually moves out into space.
