* A ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' comic explored the consequences of the [[EvilutionaryBiologist High Evolutionary]] kicking all of the humans, superhumans, and mutants in the MarvelUniverse into their [[GoalOrientedEvolution most highly evolved]] state and uniting into a single being; instead of achieving TheSingularity or AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence as the H.E. had hoped, it/they essentially destroyed the universe and left the High Evolutionary [[AndIMustScream stranded forever on a timelocked Earth stuck outside of reality]]. Oops.

* Apparently, Pete Townshend wanted to manage this with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lifehouse_(rock_opera) Lifehouse.]] That's right, kiddies - the lead guitarist of The Who wanted you to '''''die of joy''''' at the end of "Won't Get Fooled Again". Luckily for us, the attempt to realize this [[CreatorBreakdown drove him nuts]] before he could pull it off.
* Russian composer Alexander Scriabin spent the last 12 years of his life working on a musical work called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mysterium_(Scriabin) Mysterium.]] He planned only one performance of his work, at the foothills of the Himalayas. It would last seven days, and would lead to the end of the world and the replacement of humanity with purer forms.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Runequest}}'', the Empire of Wyrmfriends believed that everybody, be it mortal or god, had a secret draconic nature that everybody should have embraced. And they meant ''everybody''; it worked like an enormous pyramid scheme with the final goal of creating a messianic True Dragon, and no red lines whatsoever. Starting after the Empire's fall, the Lunar Goddess wants everybody to be illuminated and worship her, and she has assimilated even other goddesses.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': Somewhat the point of the Genestealer Cults, although {{Downplayed|Trope}} in that they do not necessarily want ''everyone'' in. In the early stages of a Genestealer infiltration, the brood will lurk around the outskirts of society, infecting individuals who will not be missed such as the homeless or people who live in isolated places. As the cult grows in size as generations pass and it's members become more human-like, the cult will begin opening seemingly benign fronts, granting them more influence and resources, while also becoming more "selective" about who is infected, targeting powerful or influential citizens. Eventually as a Tyranid Hive Fleet approaches, the cult will become more aggressive and try to stage a coup. If the coup is successful, the infected and other unfortunates are devoured and absorbed into the Hive when the Tyranids scour the place. If the attempted coup fails, it still diverts much-needed resources away from the defences.

The Feral World of Lamarno, for instance, was actually completely taken over peacefully by a Genestealer Cult which posed as a religious movement called the "Celebrants of Nihilism". When the bugs arrived, three quarters of the planet's population ''calmly marched into the waiting bio-ships to be consumed by their "living gods"''. *shudders*
