* In ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries'', a number of cults try to bring their EldritchAbomination deities to Earth which would result in the deaths of millions and EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. The Cult of the Black Pharaoh is the oldest and most dangerous one of these.

* ''TabletopGame/SirenTheDrowning'' features the Current of Acheron, a faction of Abyssal Sirens who want to ensure [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the Deluge]] will happen because they honestly believe the world is [[CrapsackWorld such a crappy place]] destroying it really is the only sensible option. Because of this stance, they are absolutely hated by other Sirens, [[EvilVersusOblivion including the other Abyssal Currents]], and usually have to operate in secret in order to survive.

** The Seventh Heaven Apocalypse Day Group that shows up in "The Pit" arc are praying for the end of the world every day. They think they finally get their wish during a juvie riot when a tanker full of bio-acid comes barreling through the window of their church, but no such luck.

The AxCrazy ex-Judge Priest later grants them their wish, however.

* [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness SEELE]] from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', who may have been somewhat inspired by Aum Shinrikyo. They dress everything up in pseudo-kabbalistic imagery, to the point of giving various entities and objects names from Christianity or Judaism (the monsters attacking Japan are called Angels, the progenitor entity of these called Adam, the [[spoiler: progenitor entity of all terrestrial life]] called Lilith) while advancing the Human Instrumentality Project, which [[spoiler: involves bringing about [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Third Impact]] and merging the souls of all humanity with Lilith, essentially causing their deaths as individual beings]]. To the point that, in [[TheMovie End of Evangelion]] as [[spoiler: Third Impact is taking place]], they recite various ritualistic phrases together, and refer to the process as the Red Earth Ceremony.

* While they're never explicitly referred to as cults, a few of the evil Teams in ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}} seek to awaken immensely powerful godlike entities whose power could indeed cause an apocalypse. Notably Team Galactic, whose goal is to use several borderline {{Eldritch Abomination}}s to destroy the world and replace it by a new one where free will would not exist. Team Aqua and Team Magma also have for their goal the awakening of an ancient godlike entity, though their leaders both think that their respective goals (expanding the sea or the landmasses, respectively) are [[WellIntentionedExtremist noble]], and are horrified when they [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone realize]] the sheer scale of the destruction Kyogre or Groudon can cause.
