The result is generally that you have the remnants of humanity fighting to survive in a [[CrapsackWorld crapsacked]] ScavengerWorld of SceneryGorn and [[GhostCity Ghost Cities]], or at least plenty of SchizoTech and LostTechnology (or even WeirdScience). People inevitably degrade down to DisasterScavengers and {{Crazy Survivalist}}s, for whom staying alive may well mean being ReducedToRatburgers or [[ImAHumanitarian worse]]. If enough time has passed, those born after the end may hear stories of TheBeforetimes from those few who survived the catastrophe, trying to impress upon the children what [[GloryDays humanity was]] and still is capable of. Expect a FishOutOfTemporalWater who SleptThroughTheApocalypse to wake up to see their world changed. At any point in the setting an ApocalypticLog may be found to explain exactly why the world was devastated in the first place, and/or an ArchaeologicalArmsRace might break out to reclaim the old world's technology.

In any post-apocalyptic story created after the release of ''Film/MadMax'', it is almost assured that the obvious and natural way for the world to look after a civilization-destroying cataclysm is "the Australian Outback". ''[[ApocalypseAnarchy There is no need to explain this. Global catastrophe turns the world into an anarchist Australia with interwarring gangs. It just follows logically]]''. However, in any AfterTheEnd story created around the 1950s, expect to see plenty of [[NuclearNasty Nuclear Nasties]] due to RuleOfCool.

While this a legitimate trope, like LukeIAmYourFather, it's also a very [[StockEpilepticTrees popular fan theory]] for shows that [[ConstructedWorld don't seem to take place in our world]].

[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Something hugely nasty]] has happened to humanity. Be it nuclear war (which was once very popular but has gone out of vogue, in part due to TheGreatPoliticsMessUp), plague (which currently seems to be the most popular), natural disaster (which seems the most likely to happen in the near future in RealLife), [[WorldWreckingWave supernatural disaster]] (usually the case with a SealedEvilInACan or missing CosmicKeystone), devastating [[GaiasLament environmental changes]] (which, in this kind of fiction, happen too quickly for civilization to adapt), an [[ZombieApocalypse outbreak of the living dead]] (also hugely popular these days), or an AlienInvasion (God help us if ''that'' one happens)--most of humanity is gone.
