* Deconstructed in ''Fanfic/GhostsOfEvangelion''. When Shinji and Asuka were the only humans left alive, they scavenged freely the ruins to find food. But when Shinji took a cello from a music store, Asuka pointed out he was stealing, and maybe the owner would return to the real world and find he was missing a cello.

** A perfect Real Life example of this trope would be a condominium complex in Ocoee, Florida hit by a tornado during an overnight storm in 1998. The complex -- consisting of large single-story condos -- was completely leveled with the exception of a single condo on the edge of the complex's property. Not only did the couple living in this condo not even ''notice'' a tornado was destroying their neighbors while it was going on, the family only found out it had happened when they turned their TV on in the morning and saw a picture of their own condo on the morning news with the scrolling headline "MIRACLE SAVES SINGLE CONDOMINIUM" running under it. They never even lost power.

* The Alexandria arc on ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' shows the collision of one group of survivors living a Cosy Catastrophe with another who has been fighting for their lives for years. The former think the latter act like savages, and the latter think the former are weak and sheltered.

The former think the latter act like savages, and the latter think the former are weak and sheltered. Amusingly enough, both groups are right about each other.

* ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'': This is exactly Shaun's plan. The "plan" being rounding up his friends and family, going to the local pub, and waiting there until it all blows over. Suffice to say, it doesn't exactly work.

* Fredric Brown's short story "The Waveries" is about alien microbes that "eat" electricity, causing virtually all technology to stop working. People are surprisingly ok with this.

* {{Deconstructed|Trope}} in in the 1986 anti-nuke film ''ComicBook/WhenTheWindBlows''. The protagonists are a charming but frightfully naive old English couple who lived through the horrors of the Blitz, and so faced with the threat of nuclear war, they try to adopt that famous StiffUpperLip mindset. [[DownerEnding It doesn't protect them]], [[ForegoneConclusion needless to say]].

* Despite having barely survived an apocalyptic war at some point, the world in ''Anime/SoraNoWoto'' is surprisingly doing well for itself. Sure there's the possibility that [[spoiler: the Earth's dying]] but life had moved on.

* The setting-defining event of ''TabletopGame/ChuubosMarvelousWishGrantingEngine'' is that the sun went out (more specifically, [[AntropomorphicPersonification she was shot down by an arrow]]) and the world collapsed into a metaphysical PrimordialChaos. Then a new sun rose in the place of the old and most people picked themselves back up and went on with their lives. Just how big a deal this is depends entirely on the campaign.
