* ''Fanfic/{{Survivors}}'''s Krypton is a blend of the Krypton's worst versions across various Franchise/{{Superman}} media: a perpetually hot world of boiling brown seas, polluted atmosphere, frequent earthquakes and mutated creatures where people ate solely artificial food and babies were genetically engineered. [[ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} Kara]] is shocked when she finds out the air is -comparatively speaking- amazingly pure.



--->'''Amoridere''': On the note of the swearing, which they do on a fairly normal basis, well, I suppose it could serve as an allegory or representation of the world and life's state, the world being a crapsack. As a matter of fact, the kids are also not necessarily immune to violence and neither do they have much holding back when they use it, let alone any qualms about using it. I mean, think about it this way, sure, when the kids swear on South Park, it is supposed to be seen as funny, but, at the same time, seeing all of the other stuff they do besides swearing (like bullying, stealing, and various other things that kids have no business doing) and doing whatever the hell they want to do whenever they wanna do it, it could show as to how [[AdultsAreUseless useless their parents are]], as well as the fact theire world is also a crapsack.

** It's sequel, TheAgeOfDusk, may be heading into that direction - while some things gets better, many gets much worse.

* We have this to a certain degree in the ''Fanfic/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.

* 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 UsefulNotes/TheKnightsTemplar / [[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.

* ''[[Blog/ThePredespairKids The Despair Kids]]'' actually manages to make the Tragedy itself '''worse''' [[AlternateUniverse than in canon.]] Roughly 4 billion people have become despairs, the global population is falling like dominoes, and entire countries have succumbed; the United States is in the grip of civil War, with the last remnants of the sane population holed up in New England, and a similar fate has befallen the entire South American continent. Canada fell to a coup and has become a lawless hellhole, Europe is waging a brutal war against Russia and Africa, China [[BalkanizeMe has broken up into four smaller states]], and Japan has become the most violent country on the planet, with every type of criminal, cannibal, pervert, and psycho free to walk the streets. To make matters worse, both the despairs and affected countries are hurling WMDs around like they're snowballs, destroying cities like Caracas and Mecca. And all the pollutants produced from this conflict [[OhCrap are slowly eating away at the ozone layer.]]

* ''[[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.]]

* While a great many ''[[Literature/{{Worm}} Worm]]'' Fanfictions are prone to focusing on obscure secondary characters [[CrapsackWorld many of which die in canon]], special mention must be given to ''[[FanFic/{{Bird}} Bird]]'' which features the canon backstory of [[PowerIncontinence Labyrinth]] and [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity Burnscar]]. An [[BedlamHouse insane asylum]] for parahumans.

* Thought the world after the Tragedy is bad enough? The fanfiction "Fanfic/ForestofDespair" continues a couple decades after the Tragedy, and things are still bad. With Killing Games still happening and a questionable group called the Committee slowly taking over the world. And it just gets worse with famine, gang violence and poverty on the rise. And this is only the surface of everything...

* ''FanFic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum'' is a WarFic take on ''FanFic/TheConversionBureau'' and promptly takes it all UpToEleven, with all the crapsack-ness that it implies. And there's a lot. [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/143840/1/the-conversion-bureau-the-other-side-of-the-spectrum-side-story-starvation/starvation Food is so scarce]] that some jobs have started paying people in rations instead of money, and some people have [[NoPartyLikeADonnerParty resorted to cannibalism]]; humanity is fighting a what is pretty much a HopelessWar and their only possible shot at victory is likely to be [[spoiler: a PyrrhicVictory by [[TakingYouWithMe detonating the Yellowstone megavolcano]]]]; if they lose they'll [[AFateWorseThanDeath get]] [[BalefulPolymorph turned]] [[AssimilationPlot into]] [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul zombified slaves]], with the Equestrian Barrier is [[AdvancingWallOfDoom spreading across the world]] and destroying every human and human-made object it touches. So many of our characters are traumatized in some way that the fic may deserve its own page for {{Woobie}}s, and it may actually be a convincing argument for bringing back the old "WorldOfWoobie" trope. However, there's still a glimmer of hope, as a [[MirrorUniverse good Equestria]] much more based on MLP canon has joined the battle and will aid humanity.
