* The ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' series has The Light of the Divine, who believe the Angels are God's judgment and are willing to do anything to facilitate them destroying the world, up to and including getting their hands on black-market super weapons and try to kill the Children and the titular super-heroines (and anybody who gets in the way. As an example, they kidnap Shinji on ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton'' with full intent of executing him later). They are mentioned as one of the various reasons the Evangelion universe is a CrapsackWorld on a few in all stories where they appear, some stories have them as a StarterVillain for the superwomen to deal with, and on some others [[spoiler:they have been created and are being funded by NERV without their knowledge, as a means for Gendo to have disposable soldiers that will eliminate anything he deems an obstacle to "[[AssimilationPlot The Scenario]]".]]

* In ''Franchise/{{Starcraft}}'', the Tal'Darim are a faction of Protoss who worship [[spoiler:Amon, the rogue Xel'Naga]] and aid their master in his schemes. [[spoiler:However, they are a subversion since they don't ''know'' Amon is planning an apocalypse -- they think he "just" wants to conquer everything and will reward them by uplifting them into Hybrids. In ''Legacy of the Void'', the Tal'Darim Alarak is enraged when he learns Amon has no intention of sparing the Tal'Darim from his planned apocalypse and teams up with the heroes to bring down his former god.]]

* In the ''Hunter'' novels by MercedesLackey, this is the back story as to why the world is a dystopian future with otherworldly monsters as threats to be fought back against. Back when the world was starting to go bad, most Christians saw it as the start of the Apocalypse. When the Rapture didn't happen (Christians being raised to Heaven while everyone else went to Hell), a group of Christians in the Middle East stole a nuclear weapon and set it off in hopes of kick-starting the Apocalypse. All it did was just made things even worse, as it broke the barrier between us and the otherworldly monsters.

* ''VideoGame/Shardlight'' has the Acolytes of the Reaper, who have decided that, being that death in the short-term is a virtual certainty, it shouldn't be feared and avoided but rather welcomed, as it's a step to leave the horrors of the CrapsackWorld that has resulted from the recent apocalyptic event and ascend to the Promised Land.

** To be fair [[spoiler: it's heavily implied that it's Judaism and Christianity that stole their names and imagery from the Angels rather than the other way around. Both religions are apparently based on the instruction manual that came with Adam and Lilith which we know as the Dead Sea Scrolls.]]

* 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.
