* The 2011 ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' special ''Episode of Bardock'' shows that Goku's father Bardock survived his death at the hands of Freeza and was somehow blasted back into the distant past, waking up on Planet Vegeta back when it was called Planet Plant (and before it was inhabited by either the Saiyans or their enemies the Tsufuru). In addition to discovering that the ancient Plantians invented the liquid used in Freeza's {{Healing Vat}}s, [[spoiler:Bardock battles Freeza's ancestor Chilled and goes Super Saiyan, meaning ''he's'' the legendary Super Saiyan that drove Freeza to kill off the Saiyans.]] The [[WebVideo/DragonBallAbridged Abridged]] version had a RunningGag where Bardock is on the verge of figuring out this incredibly obvious plot twist, only for something to interrupt and derail his train of thought -- and when he finally gets it, his anger at how stupid it is is what triggers his Super Saiyan transformation.

* Inverted several times in ''Manga/ThePromisedNeverland'': The children seem to be in a normal, if odd orphanage, until the existance of monsters is revealed and challenges the earth-like setting. [[spoiler:As the story progresses we understand that it isn't earth with monsters, but not earth at all, with the children being kept like cattle by demons, until another twist explains that the world of human exists somewhere, simply divided from the demon one. The series is ongoing and might twist around some more.]]

* Parodied in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "The Cryonic Woman", where Fry thinks that he is in New [[BigApplesauce New York]] AfterTheEnd, but it turns out to be current-time Los Angeles. Fry protests: "But there was this gang of 10-year olds with guns! But everyone is driving around in cars shooting at each other! But the air's green and there's no sign of civilisation whatsoever!" and his friends reply: "That's L. A. for you!"

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/{{Reboot}}''. In one game, the landscape is that of a desolate wasteland. A single 1-binome walks onto the screen and utters the phrase, "You finally really did it. You maniacs! You BLEW IT UP!"

* ''VideoGame/XCOM2'': [[spoiler:In the final mission, you assault an alien base using a portal you previously stole from them. At first it is implied that the base is located on an entirely different planet, but it later turns out that it's actually on Earth, at the bottom of an ocean. ]]

[[InterfaceSpoiler The game foreshadows this by putting the map marker showing the aliens' progress out in the middle of the ocean.]]
* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'' pulls a variant on the twist in that the surprising part isn't that it takes place AfterTheEnd up in the sky above Earth. The surprising part is ''which'' Earth it is: the one that was originally thought to have been erased from existence in the first ''Xenoblade Chronicles'', thus revealing that the franchise isn't copying ''Final Fantasy'''s position on the SlidingScaleOfContinuity.

* According to the show's series bible, this was the case for ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'', with Mobius being a post-Apocalyptic version of Earth. It explained Robotnik and Snively's presence as them having been on space when the Apocalypse happened, resulting in them being among the few humans still alive. This was backed by an episode featuring a third human in the form of an old wizard who had been in slumber for centuries.

* In a bizarre case of this trope (it was not the end of the series, but CliffHanger revelation for the issue), ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' series had Mobius revealed to be Earth far into the future, after an attempt by Cthulhu-like aliens to [[ApocalypseHow wipe out humanity for crimes against them]]. This was done to make the comic fall in line with [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog its video game brethren]], which had Sonic and company on Earth from the get-go. Some fans were not amused.

** Note, by the way, that the RPG ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' is in contrast one of the most successful [=RPGs=] on the market, while being the same universe as ''{{Earthdawn}}'', just TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture rather than a long time ago.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'', it's revealed in one of the Sunken Scrolls that the world the Inklings and Octarians are fighting over is actually a post-apocalyptic Earth. 12,000 years ago, the sea levels rose dramatically and the human race was pushed to extinction. Marine invertebrates evolved and reclaimed the land, building their cities over the ruins of the old human ones. [[spoiler:They even uncover a fossil skeleton of a human being. [[TakeThatAudience Which just so happens]] [[http://i.imgur.com/b1HUyAn.jpg to still be clutching a Wii U.]]]]

* ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries'': A variant occurs in ''The Atrocity Archive'', in which a portal to another universe leads to a frozen, atmosphere-less planet with a sky of red stars. While the protagonists naturally assume this is some alien world, it turns out it's what's left of an alternate Earth in which the Nazis summoned an EldritchAbomination. It's nearly done eating that universe, and it's looking for a fresh buffet...
