* ''Planet's Edge'' is an RPG where an alien ship appears in Earth's orbit, is fired upon, and does ''something'' that cripples it but causes the planet to vanish. The moon's doing fine, but the moonbase is not self-sufficient, so off the heroes go to the stars with a salvaged hyperdrive.

The moon's doing fine, fine[[note]]that they appear to still be subject to Earth's gravity despite the Earth not being there is explicitly mentioned and cited as a reason to think Earth wasn't ''destroyed''[[/note]], but the moonbase is not self-sufficient, so off the heroes go to the stars with a salvaged hyperdrive.

* This is how Yagrum Bagarn, the last dwarf found in VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind, survived the global soul-trap that killed all dwemer. He had travelled to an [[SpaceIsMagic "Outer Realm"]] during the event and was thus outside the soul-traps influence.

to:

* This In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' backstory, the [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Dwemer]] were an incredibly advanced scientific race, capable of creating SteamPunk and {{Magitek}} technology far beyond what any other race in the series is how capable of even thousands of years later. However, in the 1st Era, during an attempt to tap into the power of the [[CosmicKeystone heart of a dead god]], the entire race disappeared without a trace from the face of Nirn. There are [[TheRashomon many conflicting accounts and theories]] about what happened, but it remains a RiddleForTheAges. However, as revealed in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', [[LastOfHisKind at least one Dwemer survived]] - Yagrum Bagarn, Bagarn - who was in an undescribed "outer realm" when the last dwarf found calamity occurred that wiped out his people. He returned to find them gone, caught the [[MysticalPlague Corprus Disease]] soon after, and then entered the care of the famed wizard/Corprus researcher Divayth Fyr. Later, in VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind, ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the wizard Falion claims to have encountered other Dwemer in realms outside of normal space-time who have presumably survived the global soul-trap that killed all dwemer. He had travelled in a similar fashion to an [[SpaceIsMagic "Outer Realm"]] during the event and was thus outside the soul-traps influence.Bagarn.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela" combines this with a twist on the classic Adam and Eve plot...but seems to forget its own canon that humans have colonized numerous other planets in the universe, such as Mars.
** Could lead to FridgeBrilliance when you take into account that Leela was dehydrated and gullible at the time and Zapp [[spoiler:actually rigged the whole thing to make it seem like they were Adam and Eve in a strange planet and their world was destroyed (truth is it was EarthAllAlong) so she would be willing to have sex with him.]]

* The nuclear war that destroyed everything in its world but [[ShiningCity Laurentia]] in the ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' backstory was fought between nations that had space colonies that were theoretically supposed to be insurance against a planetary apocalypse. Unfortunately, the colonies ''themselves'' were easy targets for nuclear warheads when war did break out.
