* Like in the comics, General Zod and his cronies managed to survive the destruction of the planet Krypton because they were trapped in the [[PrisonDimension Phantom Zone]] in both ''SupermanTheMovie'' and ''{{Film/ManOfSteel Man of Steel}}''.

* A lot of the kryptonians in the ''{{Superman}}'' comics were in space when the planet exploded and then ended up on Earth. Superman himself is a subversion because he was deliberately sent into space to avoid being killed.

* In ''ComicBook/HelOnEarth'', [[WellIntentionedExtremist H'el's]] [[spoiler: fake]] backstory is explained as this. Before [[EarthShatteringKaboom Krypton was destroyed]], H'el was sent into space to find a way to save it. Years later, he lands on Earth; where he finds two other survivors: Franchise/{{Superman}} and ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}. As it turns out, [[spoiler: he isn't actually a Kryptonian astronaut, nor is he a WellIntentionedExtremist. He is, in fact, a few Kryptonian cell samples sent into space as an experiment, and when he found out about his origins, he decided to bring back Krypton just so he could rule it and/or destroy it]].

** Originally kryptonian criminals used to be placed into orbital spaceships to rehabilitate that would crash land on Earth before the rehabilitation was done but later comics started putting them in the [[PrisonDimension Phantom Zone]].
** ''KryptoTheSuperDog'' was in an experimental rocket in Krypton's orbit when the planet exploded. Pre-crisis comics handwaved Superman's spaceship creating a [[OurWormholesAreDifferent space warp]] between Krypton and Earth to explain why so many kryptonians ended up on Earth.

* Sorta used in the ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'' strip ''Shakara''. The world is destroyed at the start of the story and the only human left is an astronaut from the International Space Station. He is killed not long after.

* In a ResetButton episode of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'', the crew of the NX-01 witnesses the destruction of Earth from their ship viewscreen. The evil aliens responsible for this are GenreSavvy enough to continue hunting down all off-world humans.
