* ''FireEmblem'' cannot help itself. Since every game focuses on a royal brat reclaiming their home and throne. However only one game really fits this trope to a T. Fire Emblem 7 is slightly less grand on the usual cataclysm scale of Main lord hero losing home kingdom in Fire Emblem games. Lyn has only lost her tribe and her whole family at the start of the game due to bandits. When the Player incarnate arrives she's alone fending off bandits.
** Hell, ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' has fun with it - Marth's castle ate a [[SphereOfDestruction Subspace Bomb]] in Adventure mode.

* [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]] to the point of parody in the first episode of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qbt1h_XBRgU&index=2&list=PL9fGHMcRLx6gU9ZLieogw3HJTU9C53HAA Ben McYellow]] series. Due to the [[NoBudget nature]] of the series, the only inhabitant we see other than the title character is the [[MentorOccupationalHazard inevitably doomed elder]], the village itself is represented by [[FunnyMoments a sign reading]] [[ShapedLikeItself "Our Village"]], and its destruction is represented by totally unrelated StockFootage of a random building demolition.

* After a fashion, this happens twice in ''VideoGame/StarWarsKnightsOfTheOldRepublic''. The very first section of the game takes place on a spaceship which gets shot down, and the next section takes place on a planet which gets bombarded to oblivion just as the protagonists are leaving. [[spoiler:It actually happens [[RuleOfThree three times]] as the Jedi Academy on Dantooine (the planet visited after the aforementioned "planet bombarded to oblivion") is attacked and destroyed by Darth Malak after a certain number of {{Plot Coupon}}s has been collected. You meet some survivors though]].

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', eventual-protagonist Nico Robin is the product of this, given that she is hunted by the World Government precisely because she is the sole survivor of the Marines' otherwise utter annihilation of her hometown.
** In addition, [[spoiler: Trafalgar Law was a victim of this. His hometown and country, Flevance, was quarantined with all its citizens, including children, getting summarily executed. The only way Law escaped was by hiding in the piles of corpses of his loved ones.]]

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'' continues the tradition with Velvet's hometown, Aball, which suffers from an outbreak of daemonblight as part of an event that would go down in history as the Advent. Everyone except Velvet and Artorius succumbs to it. Three years later, the party visits the village, looking as if nothing had ever happened to it, though [[spoiler:it turns out to all be an illusion; Aball has remained uninhabited for those three years.]]
