* ''Anime/DragonballSuper'' involves many characters that outshine even Goku in power. Said characters being gods, gods of gods, and even a TopGod who's powerful enough to cause a ApocalypseHow/ClassZ ApocalypseHow. Subverted due to the fact that said TopGod is quite the friendly chap (and the fact that it's still ''Franchise/{{Dragonball}}''), and that basically edges it more towards LovecraftLite.

* The universe of Videogame/{{Battleborn}} is set when Solus is the sole remaining star after the rest of the starts has been darkened by [[EldritchAbomination Valresi]]. By the time of the game, [[TheEmpire Jennerit Imperium]], the powerful civilization in war against the Valresi, has been knocked out of the war when [[TheQuisling Lothar Rendain]] overthrew Empress Lenore and sided with Valresi with beliefs that joining them would be a better option than engaging in HopelessWar. The titular [[RagTagBunchOfMisfits Battleborn]] was formed by the five [[WeAreStrugglingTogether united-but-squabbling]] factions ([[TheRepublic United Peacekeeping Republic]], [[MegaCorp Last Light Consortium]], [[ArmyOfThievesAndWhores The Rogues]], [[NatureHero Eldrid]], and LaResistance from [[TheEmpire Jennerit Imperium]]) with goals to make a [[WorldHalfFull difference]] by uniting against them rather than waiting to die alone.

** ''Sailor Stars'', the last arc of the anime, reveals that Sailor Senshi exist across the galaxy and have all been engaged in an epic battle against evil. Sailor Galaxia, one of the strongest warriors, has been exterminating entire planets so that she can collect Star Seeds, which are souls. Galaxia is said to have wiped out 80% of the galaxy. [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] is ''even worse'': Galaxia, bad as she was, was also [[spoiler:the UnwittingPawn to the AnthropomorphicPersonification of [[GodOfEvil Chaos]], which at the climax ''absorbs the source of the universe's life'']]. Sure, Usagi [[spoiler:destroys Chaos, restores life to the galaxy]] and [[DeathIsCheap resurrects]] [[EverybodyLives all her dead friends]], we're told that [[spoiler:Chaos]] has ''survived'', and that one day it'll be back.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': A post-apocalyptic CrapsackWorld where a catastrophe [[spoiler:caused by an AncientConspiracy meddling with ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow]] led to the annihilation of half of humanity's population, while the remainder are under the relentless attacks of the "[[EldritchAbomination Angels]]", alien ([[HumansAreCthulhu or not]]) assailants on whose motives, constituents or psychology we do not have an idea of. They also happen to get progressively creepier as the show progresses, with the final ones as capable of MindRape. Various factions within the series [[GambitPileup vie for the opportunity to take down the Angels in the way they deem most appropriate]], with the winner as the creation of equally nightmarish HumongousMecha, but such a last resort requires [[PoweredByAForsakenChild the chosen pilots to be mentally ill and psychologically tortured]] in order for them to function. [[BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu The war only makes things worse in increasingly horrifying details]], while there is also an AncientConspiracy behind the scenes (similar to Lovecraft's tales) who plans to use such abominations in the first place to resurrect an [[RealityWarper even worse alien God]] and cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt InTheirOwnImage. In the end, the apocalypse is so [[MindScrew incomprehensible]] it even also makes [[GainaxEnding us real life humans go mad from the revelation]].

The world of TabletopGame/KingdomDeath. On top of the {{Crapsack|World}} DeathWorld filled with monstrous, madness-inducing horrors where humans are at the bottom of the food chain, the fluff hints at one or several unknowable, unkillable entities who created the world and everything in it for completely unknown reasons. Even managing to defeat the endgame FinalBoss of a given campaign is likely to be a PyrrhicVictory at best. In fact, even the monsters themselves, despite usually being some shade of EldritchAbomination, aren't immune to being hit by this, the intelligent ones especially - the [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragon King]], for example, is the LastOfItsKind, and explicitely angsts over this and the fear of ultimately being forgotten, showing it to be as insignificant as the human chattel it lords over.

* The TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness has elements of this in each of its gamelines, with each one having an apocalyptic ending. [[TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade Vampire]] has the [[EldritchAbomination Antediluvians]], their ancient, cannibalistic and godlike forefathers and [[TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse Werewolf]] has the Wyrm and the titular apocalypse. Of the bigger lines, only [[TabletopGame/MageTheAscension Mage]] gives the potential for a happy ending, and doesn't involve one flavour or another of the Old Ones eating everything (unless the PC's screw up BADLY).
