* ''LightNovel/HeavyObject'' occurs after the collapse of the UnitedNations and the proliferation of the titular Objects, massive weapon platforms capable of annihilating entire cities and surviving nuclear blasts. The fractured nations have formed into four supernations that are constantly skirmishing with one another without any care for the loss of soldiers as they're easily replaced compared to Objects. The majority of citizens are apathetic to the situation as they are distant from the battlefields and surrounded by constant media assurances of their righteousness and safety. As a result of decaying moral structure dirty tactics are commonly employed and child soldiers are not considered unusual. The current state of the world is perpetuated and exacerbated by extremists and war profiteers on all sides.

* There is DGrayMan, wherein there is doom. If you are an exorcist, you are screwed. If you are a human, you are screwed. If you are an akuma, you are screwed. If you are a Noah, you are not necessarily screwed, but the exorcists are actively seeking to kill you. AND, to top it all off, if you are dead, you are not necessarily safe.

* ''Manga/{{Dorohedoro}}'' (unrelated to the above) takes place in a world divided between the WretchedHive city of Hole in the human world and the realm of the magic-users, who go to Hole to practice on defenseless muggles (generally in the form of [[BalefulPolymorph warping their bodies]]). Not that the magic-users' realm is wonderful: if you can't do magic you may as well be a muggle and if you do you may find yourself the target of the powerful mob boss En and his family or giant all-powerful, remorseless demons. To top it off, dying won't even free you from this world: hell is the only option after death.

* The Future that Trunks came from in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', a ravaged post-apocalyptic wreck where two powerful Androids go around killing anyone who opposes them, and have already killed the most powerful heroes of Earth. What makes it worse is that the [[ResetButton Dragon Balls]] are gone because Kami, who shares a soul with Piccolo, one of the aforementioned heroes, is dead.

The Future that Trunks came from in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', a ravaged post-apocalyptic wreck where two powerful Androids go around killing anyone who opposes them, and have already killed the most powerful heroes of Earth. What makes it worse is that the [[ResetButton Dragon Balls]] are gone because Kami, who shares a soul with Piccolo, one of the aforementioned heroes, is dead. In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' Future Trunks' timeline actually gets ''worse''. After surviving nearly two decades of terror and death under the androids, humanity is brought to the brink of extinction [[HistoryRepeats once again]]. Unlike the androids, who kept humanity alive for their own entertainment, [[spoiler: Black Goku]] doesn't play around. In a year's time, he trashes the world worse than the androids to the point that Trunks is forced to eat pet food to survive.

* The ''Anime/CodeGeass'' world isn't too great either. There's [[TheEmpire the Holy Britannian Empire]], [[TheBeautifulElite which looks like it's rich and beautiful at first]], but is actually a racist, totalitarian, SocialDarwinist Empire which is less like the U.K. and more like UsefulNotes/NaziGermany and where people who are enslaved are treated as "[[AirstripOne Numbers]]". Slaves can sign up to be citizens through military service, but the discrimination is still widespread there. It is ruled with an iron fist by TheEmperor and his constantly-warring children through a [[FeudalFuture Medieval feudal system]]. [[ForTheEvulz If he gets bored]], feels slighted in any way or [[WellIntentionedExtremist actually plans something]], TheEmperor of Britannia will order your country to be either enslaved or razed to the ground. Then there's the Chinese Federation, an overpopulated union of states where starvation is more common than food whose puppet ruler is still a child propped up by [[EvilChancellor corrupt eunuchs]]. Finally, there's the European Union (E.U. for short), a loosely-maintained and hardly-defended union similar to the Chinese Federation but with better living accommodations. [[HufflepuffHouse Even though their role in the story and world relations are minor]], they actually make it out to be a pretty nice place with equal rights and everything... until Britannia conquers most of it. All this while the DiabolusExMachina constantly torments the AntiHero protagonist and everyone else.
** The crapsack nature of the E.U. is expanded on with the {{OVA}} ''Anime/CodeGeassAkitoTheExiled'', in which it is revealed that the Japanese are also being prejudiced against there and that the ruling class are almost as despicable as in Britannia.

All this while the DiabolusExMachina constantly torments the AntiHero protagonist and everyone else.
** The crapsack nature of the E.U. itself is expanded on with shown to be fairly crapsack (if in a more {{Crapsaccharine|World}} way) in the {{OVA}} ''Anime/CodeGeassAkitoTheExiled'', in which it is revealed that the Japanese are also being prejudiced discriminated against there and that the ruling class are almost as despicable as in Britannia.

* The world of ''Anime/GetterRobo Armageddon'' turns into this partway through the series after the Getter Bomb, a hydrogen bomb that goes off on Shin Dragon's head as it fires a Getter Beam, saturates the world in Getter Energy, allowing the EldricAbomination known as the Invaders to run rampant through the world.

* ''Anime/GenmaWars'' takes place in a world similar to ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'', only instead of humanoid simians, its ruled by the [[EldritchAbomination the Genma Tribe]], a race of extra-dimensional demons that waged war with humanity centuries ago and enslaved it. Humans are treated at the very best as slaves (if they are female, young and beautiful, its clear what [[SexSlave kind]] they are) and at worst, they are literally ''cattle'' - human organs are sold in the market and children are said to taste ''delicious''.

* ''Anime/GenmaWars'' takes place in a world similar to ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'', only instead of humanoid simians, its ruled by the [[EldritchAbomination the Genma Mah Tribe]], a race of extra-dimensional demons that waged war with humanity centuries ago and enslaved it. mankind ages ago. Humans are treated at the very best as slaves (if they are female, young and beautiful, its clear what [[SexSlave kind]] they are) and at worst, they are literally ''cattle'' ''[[ToServeMan cattle]]'' - human organs are sold in the market and children are said to taste ''delicious''.''delicious''. There are resistance groups that oppose the Mah, but they do it by pillaging the human slaves' crops and robbing them of tribute, making the human's lives even harder. The demons themselves are governed by an authoritarian EvilOverlord, who loves to [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil rape human girls]] and is [[HairTriggerTemper very quick]] to [[YouHaveFailedMe punish his underlings]] [[DisproportionateRetribution for even questioning him]]. This world is so crapsacky to a level that the EvilOverlord responsible for making everybody's lives so hard is also very miserable himself - he was left in charge of watching Earth, which he considered a pitiful little planet with nothing to offer, so he purposefully breeds with human females to create hybrid children to create war and destruction with the purpose to amuse him.
** When the heroes get sent back in time to prevent the disaster that caused the demons' rise to power, they found out the world wasn't much better than the one they came from. The modern times were a dystopian nightmare where people are kept miserable by a powerful, and corrupt elite revealed to be disguised demons that infiltrated positions of power to manipulate the media and the government. There is a island known as Special District, whose inhabitants are exempt from the laws and can get away with [[WouldHurtAChild murdering children]] if they show their badges to the police. Said island serves as HQ for the demons to engineer a nuclear war so they can rebuild civilization in their image. [[spoiler: At the end of the series, the heroes fail in preventing the nuclear destruction of breaking out and the word being destroyed, though it just barely avoid it from being a complete DownerEnding]].

* The ([[NoExportForYou Japan-only]]) [[LightNovel/PocketMonstersTheAnimation novelizations]] by Takeshi Shudo, a major writer for the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' series from Kanto until Johto, [[http://cindysuke.tumblr.com/post/34817930237/the-facts-about-pokemon-world-lol depict]] the anime world as this. To name a few details: children are legally considered adults when they become ''ten'', thus subject to marriage, taxes and jobs, plus many fathers and grandfathers leave their families only to get nowhere on their journey. In addition, Gym Leaders get fired from their jobs ''[[DisproportionateRetribution for losing three consecutive matches]]''.
