** It should be noted, however, that the 21st century of Star Trek takes place during, between, and after multiple global wars.

** It should be noted that most of the worlds in the Imperium are what is known as Civilian Worlds, which are mostly on part with present day Earth in terms of living conditions but since they're not GRIMDARK they're rarely mention unless they're being attacked.

* Brandon Sanderson's ''Literature/TheReckonersTrilogy'' has [[spoiler:Calamity, the being that gave humanity their powers,]] come from a world where they are basically intellects, and so our world with its bright lights and noises and all the senses, seems shockingly terrifying and therefore evil.

* VideoGame/StarTrekOnline is this compared to hard canon, especially compared to [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG.]] It's almost a century later, the Federation is at war with the Klingons and [[PlayerCharacter newly commissioned officers are being fast-tracked to their own full commands because of losses incurred,]] Romulus and Remus have been destroyed, the New Romulan Empire is largely trying to make a new home for its people but is wrought with internal conflict, the Borg are making a new incursion, most of this has been set up by [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Species 8472]] infiltrators, the Iconians are researching how best to break the various species when they come back and are hinted at manipulating Species 8472 into manipulating the conflicts into existence to soften everyone up... it's much bleaker than even [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine DS9]] at the height of the Dominion War. It's still Franchise/StarTrek, though, so most civilizations, certainly Federation members, are still post-scarcity and despite the various conflicts going on, it's paradise compared to any actual CrapsackWorld.

* The characters in ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' find themselves as FishOutOfTemporalWater in TheEighties, and Doctor [=McCoy=] in particular is horrified by modern day medical practices, angrily comparing them to "the Dark Ages" and "the Spanish Inquisition". Since it's a rather lighthearted film, the whole thing's treated as comedy rather than serious criticism.

* ''WesternAnination/StevenUniverse'': Zig-zagged all over the place. The Crystal Gems are permanent residents of the Earth, and have been for a [[TimeAbyss good while now]]. On the one hand, Earth's a far cry [[TheresNoPlaceLikeHome from their own Homeworld]] and they're [[PunyEarthlings not very impressed]] [[FantasticRacism with humans]]. On the other hand, [[NobleBigot they're also]] [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight more than willing to protect both the planet and its inhabitants]], [[spoiler: [[BackstoryHorror up to and including]] [[CivilWar starting a war]] [[DefectorFromDecadence for their sake]], because Homeworld seems to be TheEmpire and their initial interest was [[PlanetLooters to bleed the earth dry]]...]]
* The Creator/TexAvery cartoon ''The Cat That Hated People'' is about, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a cat who hates people.]] The cartoon starts with an alley cat complaining about his miserable life, how humans throw boots at him, hit him with brooms, and even ''shoot'' at him. He complains about how he doesn't get along with children (who tie paper bags onto his feet) babies (who flail him about a playpen), and housewives (who hit him over the head with broomsticks when he scratches their furniture). As he complains on the sidewalk, his point is proven by people who step all over him, the last one kicking him for good measure. He finally decides to leave people forever by hitching a ride aboard a rocket and flying to the moon. However once there, he finds the moon is [[CloudCuckooLand a crazy place]], full of weird creatures who assault him in bizarre ways. (For instance, a lipstick applies itself to his mouth, then a giggling pair of lips gives him a wet smacker; then a living diaper, safety pin, and bottle of baby powder chase him, then diaper him and shove a bottle in his mouth; he has a tantrum, and his head is diapered too). Realizing this place is worse than Earth, he [[CartoonPhysics golf drives himself back]], and is ''happy'' to be back. Even though he's no better off than he was before, with people ''still'' stepping on him, he has a newfound appreciation for his home.

* ''Literature/GulliversTravels'' would constitute a TropeCodifier in that Swift was using the fantastic societies Gulliver encounters to lampoon British society at the time.
