* Semi-averted in ''Film/DemolitionMan'', where Lieutenant Leneena Huxley references "THE earthquake", the proverbial super-quake that California is "due for". Rather than explain how it tore a chunk off the coastline, it's implied that it [[SarcasmMode merely]] destroyed most of the entire San Francisco/Los Angeles area, leading to the creation of the new San Angeles metropolis.

* On ''Series/{{Defiance}}'', the massive amount of terraforming that Earth underwent at the end of the Pale Wars, among others things, apparently triggered this. In the present, the area where Los Angeles used to be is now an island chain called Angel Ark.

* This was the conclusion of [[WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory Dexter's]] California vacation. California had a big earthquake as they were leaving, and it went out to sea (neatly along the state line) as California Island

* In the Music/{{Tool}} song "Ænema", the singer is ''praying'' for this to happen to Los Angeles, since the only way to fix it is to "flush it all away". It's inspired by the Creator/BillHicks "Arizona Bay" routine, which is directly referenced in the chorus. The album artwork features "before" and "after" maps that show most of California gone.
