* The Kudur Cult in ''VideoGame/VandalHearts 2'' is the most dangerous outside faction manipulating the Natran Civil War. While they may lack the military might of [[TheEmpire the Zora-Archaeo Empire]] or the endless treasuries of [[OneNationUnderCopyright the Republic of Vernantze]], the cult was the organization that pulled the trigger on the powder keg that started the war. They extensively recruit from people who have had their lives devastated by the war, and they are trying to spread a [[ZombieApocalypse zombifying magical spell across the entire continent.]] It eventually turns out that the real goal is that [[spoiler: their leader, who is a [[BodySurf body surfing]] former cardinal who has been alive for over 150 years, is trying to use the civil war as a distraction to break into the sealed underground chambers of the Holy Nigran Cathedral because it is said to permit an audience with God Himself. What nobody expected was that the sealed chamber is actually the remains of [[AfterTheEnd an ICBM missile silo]] from a long-gone era, and it appears to contain a still-working genetic manipulation machine that [[OneWingedAngel transforms him into a horrific monster]].]]

* In the ''Comicbook/{{Hellboy}}'' and ''Comicbook/{{BPRD}}'' 'verse, there are a large number of cults and secret societies--Project Ragna Rok, the Oannes Society, and the Heliopic Brotherhood of Ra, to name a few--hoping the trigger the apocalypse. Most of them are operating under the logic that the world is going to end anyway, but if they're the ones who pull the trigger, they'll at least have some measure of control over the destruction.

A dark take on the {{cult}}, an apocalypse or doomsday cult tends to crop up in fiction wherever CosmicHorrorStory elements are present, with the members actively seeking to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. There are several flavors of apocalypse cults, but most seek to awaken or make possible the return of some god of destruction to destroy the world and "make it anew". Others seek to end their own lives to escape what they believe is the end of the world or to have a better afterlife.

* ''Fallout''. At some point after the nuclear apocalypse, some survivors begin worshipping the very concept of radiation, personifying it as an entity called 'Atom'. Some sub-groups are okay if you pass on Atom's message. Some sub-groups...are not okay with this at all. Watch out.
