LaBaere revolves around the unraveling of the cosmos by the resurrection of the Old Ones, Outer Gods, and various alien races.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' heavily implies that [[GreatOffscreenWar the Last Great Time War]] became this by the end. Entire civilizations were rendered extinct or simply [[RetGone wiped from existence]], ''armies'' of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s were created and used as weapons, the Daleks became deranged and maniacal even by [[AbsoluteXenophobe their]] [[OmnicidalManiac standards]], the Time Lords were perfectly willing to destory ''time'' in an attempt to save their own skins, and the Doctor - usually a BadassPacifist who tries to find a solution that won't kill anyone - was so horrified that he ([[JokerImmunity tried to]]) kill off ''[[KillEmAll everyone involved]]'' just to contain it.

** There's also the backstory of the Toclafane, who turn out to be [[spoiler: the last remnants of humanity, having discovered that there was no escape from the entropy consuming all existence, and became some kind of terrifying HiveMind race of sociopaths in order to hang on just a little longer.]] It's shown that merely seeing where the universe ends up is enough to turn the Master's human wife into a StrawNihilist.

* The same Swedish company behind ''TabletopGame/{{KULT}}'' also released ''MutantChronicles'' (soon to be rebooted), whose basic premise is somewhat similar to that of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', if on a much smaller scale (humanity still hasn't expanded beyond the solar system); although depending on the GameMaster's choices for his own campaign, [[LovecraftLite it could be entirely possible for the players]] [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu to rip]] [[BigBad the Dark Soul]] [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu a new one]] [[EarnYourHappyEnding if they try hard enough]]. [[HopeSpot Or not]].

** Literature/UnderTheDome'': The titular dome is [[spoiler: the creation of alien children at play. It's only lifted when the protagonists momentarily induce a sense of pity in one of the children.]]

* ''Literature/CthulhuArmageddon zig-zags between this and LovecraftLite. Humankind has survived the Great Old Ones rising and become a NewOldWest and WeirdWest combination. However, humankind is gradually dying out and their greatest champion is [[spoiler: a HumanoidAbomination.]] Then it goes FromBadToWorse.

* Both [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse Marvel]] and [[Franchise/DCUniverse DC]] are this to some extent, especially with ComicBook/{{Galactus}} or the Infinity Gauntlet for the former, and Starro or the Anti-Monitor for the latter. CrisisCrossover events usually involve cosmic threats great enough to leave the world, if not the entire universe, [[ContinuityReboot fundamentally changed]] afterwards.
