** The Future that Trunks came from in 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.

And things actually gets even ''worse'' when it's revealed that [[spoiler: Goku Black and Future Zamasu murdered all the gods in the 12 universes, leaving them as the only higher power. So the humans don't even have a god to pray to]].

** The setting of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Gundam 00]]'' is a crapsack world as well, with the people living in poverty suffering endless warfare while the rich people relying on the giant solar panel system not giving a fuck about them. In the first season, political games among the three greedy, corrupt global superpowers still exist, and the second season is basically all the corrupt politicians banded together to continue torturing people who suffer in extreme hardship under their tyrannical grips. In both cases, we have the ByronicHero Celestial Being who are among the very few people truly willing to change the world for the better [[WellIntentionedExtremist even though their methods are questionable at best]].

** ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]'' starts off similar to UC calender series, where most of the conflict stems from political and ideological reasons, but soon goes off the deep end and degenerates into hell on earth, literally. The earth is going through an energy crisis due to nuclear power jammers that have been integrated by ZAFT, almost the entire world is controlled by one side or the other through draconian military regimes, much of Earth is in ruins due to the war, and both sides are equally willing to use WMDs on their enemies and ALLIES equally. In addition, the main source of scientific progress has come from a series of genetic experiments that spawned a worldwide terrorist ideology and the war itself and recently reached the utter abandonment of the value of life in order to pursue a goal that would give birth to [[spoiler:[[AllLovingHero Kira Yamato]] and [[DarkMessiah Rau Le]][[OmnicidalManiac Creuset]]]]. And the leaders of both sides are monsters to boot.

** While the Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion film series had up to the third movie been LighterAndSofter, Evangelion 3.33 plays this UpToEleven. [[spoiler:The world is a totally desolate hellscape, and just few hundred people appear to be left alive on Earth after an aborted Third Impact. Civilization appears to be all but dead, as all resources humanity has left have been diverted to the war between NERV and its splinter organization, WILLIE. While the post-Second Impact world showed signs of hope, the post-Third Impact world is speeding down an irreparable death spiral.]]

* ''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.
