* The bleak [[DarkFantasy Dark]] ScienceFantasy setting of ''Fanfic/SonicXDarkChaos'' could possibly give ''TabletopGames/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' a run for its money - [[CosmicHorrorStory the Milky Way Galaxy is not a nice place]]. A civil war between the [[PlantAliens Metarex]] and [[AIIsACrapshoot Tsali the Ultimate Weapon]] has decimated countless worlds and murdered billions of people. Meanwhile, GodAndSatanAreBothJerks who wage eternal cold war on each other and are responsible for most of the bleakness, manipulating and dooming whole galaxies to annihilation in order to further their plans. A [[TheEmpire corrupt and repressive autocratic empire]] of [[TheLegionsOfHell Demons]] and [[TheFederation a divided federation]] of [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Angels]] battle in a ForeverWar across the whole universe, with genocide and RapePillageAndBurn being [[BlackAndGrayMorality the rule rather than the exception]]. [[TheVirus Shroud parasites]], led by their Primes, devour entire worlds on a regular basis. Torture, rape, starvation and disease run rampant, forcing innocents [[spoiler: such as Molly and Leon's refugee group]] to resort to cannibalism to survive. By the end of the story, it's implied that the galaxy has been depopulated so much that it may never recover. [[FromBadToWorse And that's all]] before [[EldritchAbomination Dark Tails]] [[spoiler: and [[AbusivePrecursors the Forerunners]]]] enter the fray...

*''Fanfic/{{MLP}}'' is set in a world of the [[CrapsaccharineWorld crapsaccharine]] variety. The Equestria of ''MLP'' is quite similar to the Equestria of the original show; however, this fic places a much higher emphasis on its [[VileVillainSaccharineShow more]] [[FridgeHorror unsavory]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar aspects]]. For instance, many of the more powerful major villains (Tirek, Chrysalis, Sombra, etc.) are treated as TheDreaded [[SealedEvilInACan Sealed Evils in Cans]], and the [[RealityWarper Reality-Warping]] God of Chaos Discord is regarded as an unfathomably powerful EldritchAbomination who is treated with a level of fear and dread that one might expect to be directed towards Lovecraftian horrors. It also explicitly has deep societal problems such as vitriolic racism, child prostitution, and oppressive, soul-destroying cults.

* ''The Firebird Trilogy'' of stories also has a very, very well constructed Crapsack world. The fic deconstructs the harem genre in the most horrifying manner, creating a world where sexual harassment of young males is encouraged, Goblins are witch raping, iumpregnating horrors, and Voldemort (Who is very much his canon counterpart, if perhaps worse), is seen by most of the fans as a hero....and Goyle is a girl.

* {{Thirty Hs}} has Surf Ninja Moon X, a world whose ecology was decimated to the point where the only food left is a cabbage and mustard sandwich, which is guarded by "three and a million thousand surf ninjas." And Harry eats it. [[spoiler: Turns out it's actually a cartilage and mustard sandwich.]]

[[AC: ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'']]
* ''[[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.
