* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11962940/1/ A Brighter Dark]]'' does this by making the two sides in the original story more closely resemble their real-life counterparts. Hoshido became an [[FantasticRacism intensely zenophobic]] state consumed by infighting and civil war, while Nohr remained mostly the same with more emphasis being focused on their incredibly high death toll and mass starvation. And then the two sides go to war, and [[WarIsHell all that entails.]]
**Despite this, the overall message of the fic remains strangely optimistic, meaning the author is probably aiming for a [[AWorldHalfFull World Half Full]] feeling. Whether or not that is achieved is a divisive subject.

* ''[[Fanfic/ThePhoenixoftheWasteland The Phoenix of the Wasteland]]'' takes place in a sterile desert wasteland where the remnants of the old Council of Unicorns were banished after Celestia and Luna overthrew them. The "modern day" has this remnant oppressing the natives under their rotting empire's iron hoof, having subjected themselves to thousands of years of eugenics which made them a "master race" of psychopathic super-soldiers. They have a sizable slave population, most of whom are born into the slaver guilds' breeding programs while the rest are rounded up by independent slave merchants; either way, they are promptly lobotomized to ensure they cannot harbor rebellious thoughts. And even if you're not a slave, the Secret Service is watching, so you run the risk of being captured and un-personed if you so much as utter any criticism against their empire or its leadership. Those not part of the master race have no rights; they may be killed, beaten, kidnapped, or raped with impunity, as long as the perpetrator is. The empire, itself, suffers from a dying economy due to a famine that's causing their slave population to dwindle. Just about every city block that isn't upper-class is in tatters, homelessness is rampant, and crime is ignored more often than it isn't. The Imperial leadership is more concerned with preparing for their next military campaign than with fixing any of these issues.

* We have this to a certain degree in the ''Gensokyo20XX'' Series with FantasticRacism being a driving factor, especially in 20XXV, when it was made a tad more apparent in chapter fourteen where Yuuka notes that some people resorted to their more unethical side to get by or get things that they need, as well as the fact that drugs run rampant. There is also the fact that [[WretchedHive Wretched Hives]] like The Forbiddens exist and [[BedlamHouse Bedlam Houses]] as the alternatives to dealing with the very mentally ill. Aside from the aforementioned, it seems to okay. WordOfGod did state that some semblance of this can be seen in how the children behaved, making a comparison to SouthPark.

** [[WordOfGod The author's background materials]] take this trope right into RefugeInAudacity and satirical BlackComedy. One of the most sacred traditions of the Angels is ''ritual child molestation''. The Jews and their society are [[ANaziByAnyOtherName obsessed with racial purity and genocide,]] and often [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything exterminate worlds with toxic gas]]. The Muslims routinely inflict AndIMustScream on their women and female captives. And so on.

* In Fanfic/ChristianHumberReloaded, the world faces the threat of village-destroying raiders, Chaos, [[{{Bionicle}} the Visorak]], [[SonicTheHedgehog Dr. Eggman's forces]], rogue dragons, [[VideoGame/StarCraft the Zerg]], a fusion of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Sin]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2 Vegnagun]], [[KingdomHearts Organization XIII]], and even the President, among others. The only hope it has is a [[SociopathicHero psychopath]] who will [[DisproportionateRetribution kill people for barely any reason]].

* The setting of ''Fanfic/CodeGeassMegiddo'': To begin with, Japan was totally destroyed by detonating the underground reserves of sakuradite, with what little remnants of it now being a desolate ''[[{{Matrix}} Matrix]]''-esque wasteland. From there, the rest of the world (specifically Britannia and the EU; China has since been annexed by the former) is engaged in the ''Code Geass'' equivalent of WorldWarIII, with all the devastation that entails. Every faction has their share of narrow-minded racists and warmongers that want to wipe out some section of humanity, while in the shadows, V.V.'s order (which, in a huge departure from canon, holds a KnightsTemplar / [[TheIlluminati Illuminati]] tone and composition) watches the war's progress while preparing for Ragnarok. Even the Black Knights, for all their righteousness and just cause, cannot escape having villains in their number, ranging from the StateSec Ninth Army to an underground faction of Japanese xenophobes that want to purge the world of "gaijin scum". All that said, ''Megiddo'' would have a serious case of DarknessInducedAudienceApathy if not for certain "good" characters and situations breaking the gloom, as well as Lelouch's proclaimed agenda being to destroy the current world and replace it with something better.
