** While a lot of the Commonwealth in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' isn't great, life in Diamond City is actually pretty good. There's a farm in the outfield supplying crops, a butcher supplying fresh meat, fresh water, a functional schoolhouse, and a few permanent stores as well as a pretty constant stream of traders. The city even has a barber, private detective, radio station, upscale restaurant, newspaper, and ''plastic surgeon''. The only downside to living in Diamond City is the constant threat of the Institute and their synths, but even then, the so-called "War for the Commonwealth" barely touches its largest settlement.
*** [[VideoGameCaringPotential Depending on how much the player decides to work on settlement building]], the Commonwealth can be transformed from a society barely scraping along to a region with a dozen booming metropolises and interconnected trade routes.

* ''Manga/GirlsLastTour'' has Chito and Yuuri surviving the collapse of civilization, and they're surprisingly optimistic about traveling their dying world. Each day is the same, with them searching for food, supplies, and shelter, but all in all, they seem content with life.

* ''Manga/GirlsLastTour'' takes place in a world where an UnspecifiedApocalypse happened a century earlier. Civilization has long collapsed, humanity's numbers are too low to repopulate, and most life has vanished, leaving the world deathly silent. Not that it's a big concern for Chito and Yuuri, who spend their days exploring, collecting supplies, keeping each other company, and shooting the occasional philosophical question. They don't seem to have any major motivation do keep WalkingTheEarth beyond simply living day to day.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' takes place in [[AfterTheEnd what's left of Hyrule 100 years after Calamity Ganon destroyed it]]; despite this, life has gone on as usual for the populace. Many of the villages Link visits are thriving (and even some of the ones directly threatened by the [[HumongousMecha Divine Beasts]] are doing well for themselves), people travel at any time despite the threat of monsters along the roads, and goods are still being produced and sold (with some people even ''expanding'' their business). Justified in that Zelda was able to [[SealedEvilInACan seal Calamity Ganon in Hyrule Castle]], allowing the places that weren't destroyed in the initial catastrophe to survive and recover, and the monsters that should have been rampaging the countryside are without leadership and keep to themselves, only attacking anyone foolish enough to venture into their territory. By the time the game starts, however, there's a very real threat of Ganon breaking free and [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt finishing what he started]].

As things get gnarlier, the place starts falling apart, the electricity goes out, and there's no way to get material to make routine repairs.

* ''On The Beach'', a 1957 novel (written by Nevil Shute), TheFilmOfTheBook (made in 1959, directed by Stanley Kramer and starring GregoryPeck, Ava Gardner, and Creator/FredAstaire), and a made-for-television movie based on the book (made in 2000) each handle the story slightly differently, although the plot remains that of a Cozy Catastrophe. Nuclear war has devastated the whole world, except for Australia. The winds will bring the radioactivity soon enough, but until then, life goes on largely as normal.

* At the end of ''Film/TheWorldsEnd'', [[spoiler:the alien BigBad decides to leave Earth and destroys all human technology out of spite, sending the world into a psuedo-medieval state]]. Nonetheless, the protagonists seem to deal with it just fine along with either fixing some old relationships or establishing new ones. In the case of Gary, his hedonistic and selfish ways lend itself well into this new world.

* The protagonists of Creator/DavidWeber novel ''OutOfTheDark'' are CrazyPrepared militants who--somehow--successfully anticipate an alien invasion. This allows them to easily defend their homesteads, wives, and children for a good while, before they are finally pulled into the conflict by the arrival of [[spoiler:Dracula]]. [[DeusExMachina Yeah]].

* ''Manga/YokohamaKaidashiKikou'' (Yokohama Shopping Trip) is one of the most laid-back depictions of the twilight of humanity ever; as seen through the eyes of an android coffee shop owner.
* In ''Anime/PonyoOnACliffByTheSea'', sea levels rise by some 20 meters around the island where the story takes place, which would likely wipe out everything on it. Still, most anyone in the movie is shown to have fun and the focus stays on the relationship between Sosuke and Ponyo. It's strongly implied that there are no casualties at all (no human ones, anyway).

* ''Manga/SchoolLive'' is basically a SchoolGirlSeries set in a ZombieApocalypse.

Her clubmates and fellow survivors basically play along with it. The school also happens to have solar panels, a water purification system and plenty of supplies (though they sometimes need to leave the shelter to get more food), which is great help in the playing along.
