* ''Literature/{{Genome}}'' has the Taii, a VestigialEmpire that now only controls about a dozen worlds. It used to rule what is now controlled by the younger races before a mutually-destructive war with an equally-powerful empire. At this point, their culture is slowly dying, remembering their past glory. Their technology is now significantly behind the galactic standard (it's mentioned that their ancient planetoid-sized battleships are easily outmatched by a tiny human destroyer).



* The Asgard from ''Series/StargateSG1'', who survive only through cloning, and have found that every new generation of clones suffer a slight degeneration. [[spoiler:Then, after thousands of years of cloning, they decide to commit mass suicide instead of dying slowly and give all their knowledge and technology to humanity.]]
** The Tok'ra can not reproduce. Her only symbiont queen has been killed so she can not create a new symbiont. However, from time to time, some Goa'uld have joined the Tok'ra, perhaps one day a new queen is among them.

However, a branch of the race, calling themselves Vanir, still exist in the Pegasus Galaxy, having managed to partly cure their degradation by performing experiments on humans. It's unknown how many Vanir are still alive, but it's likely they can't reproduce any more than their cousins in the Ida Galaxy could]]

* ''Series/EarthFinalConflict'': the Taelons are dying. As are their "cousins" the Jaridians. Both races are the result of an Atavus cult leader draining most of the race from their "core energy" and infusing his small group of followers with it. This group (augmented with Kimera DNA/energy) became the Taelons, while what's left of the Atavus became the Jaridians. No wonder the Jaridians hate the Taelons.

By Season 5, both races are virtually gone. Only a single Taelon is left (another one is resurrected, before being converted into an Atavus and then killed), while the Jaridian homeworld is mentioned to have imploded (for some reason).


Added DiffLines:

*** A sideplot in the third game also reveals that [[spoiler:most of the elcor were wiped out during the Reaper invasion. Too few made it out to provide a viable breeding pool]].

** The Light creatures hiding in the depths of the swamp caves are the remains of the once proud race of Myriad.
** Only 15 Skavids remain in Gielinor.
** The Aviansie were believed to have gone extinct during the God Wars until a small army of that that were frozen alive got thawed out, although later it was discovered that a larger population of them survived on their homeworld so they were not dying after all.

* The vault 87 [[{{Mutants}} Super Mutants]] from VideoGame/Fallout3 were once a massive [[ImAHumanitarian flesh eating]] horde that prevented large civilization from forming in the capital wasteland due to their constant attacks. The [[MutagenicGoo FEV]] that created them also [[DepopulationBomb renders them sterile]] so they have to capture humans to [[AssimilationPlot make more of themselves]] however by the time the Lone Wanderer enters the wasteland they are running low on FEV which is revealed through their EnemyChatter and they are sending groups to try and find more. By VideoGame/Fallout4 it's heavily implied that they have been [[GuiltFreeExterminationWar wiped out completely]] by the east coast Brotherhood of Steel.

Added DiffLines:

** Dragons were immortal thanks to the blessing of the Titans, which was lost when they destroyed Deathwing. Not only did empowering the Dragon Soul weaken every dragonflight, it also rendered them sterile. The clutches of eggs laid before Deathwing's death are possibly the last generation.
*** One of the most [[BrokenBase contentious]] achievements of the ''Legion'' expansion was awarded for [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential killing all the remaining red whelplings]].

* The Forsaken in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' are undead and so incapable of reproducing. While they can reclaim some undead from the feral Scourge, for the most part their population is in constant decline. Recognizing this danger, Sylvanas has recruited the remaining Val'kyr to create new Forsaken soldiers out of their fallen enemies and allies.

** Likewise, they also want to kill all the Awakened Beings who are still left. *** The warriornesses can also be themselves awakened, but then they are probably quickly killed by the other warriornesses.
