* Most of the plot in ''SigmaStarSaga'' revolves around searching for a series of six planets which will ultimately lead to a DoomsdayDevice. [[spoiler: Earth is the "seventh" planet, which had already been destroyed by said device.]]

* In ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet,'' this is the FirstEpisodeSpoiler--Ledo had rediscovered EarthThatWas, and the ice age that caused his ancestors to abandon it has ended, making it a [[SingleBiomePlanet water planet]]. The rest of the series is him adjusting to the situation.

AdvancedAncientHumans, when there was a technologically advanced human civilization in ancient times, and EarthThatWas and EarthThatUsedToBeBetter when Earth was lost, destroyed, or fell on hard times long ago.

* ''ComicBook/TheGreatPowerOfChninkel'': A "before the origins" variation. The planet Daar is in fact Earth around a billion years ago. After [[{{God}} O'ne]] destroys almost all life out of spite for not being worshipped, life re-develops over the course of millions of years and the last Tawals (an ape-like race who barely survived the previous destruction) eventually become modern humans.

*''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. ]]

* ''...And All the Stars a Stage'', by James Blish, makes an interesting use of this trope. The protagonists escape their Doomed Homeworld just before their sun (a big blue-white one) goes nova, and wander the Galaxy looking for a replacement. Two previous tries turn out to be deathtraps, and just as they are running out of time and hope and everything, they stumble across a system with a little pipsqueak yellow star and decide it's their last chance. Yeah. [[spoiler:The twist on the twist is that they arrive in Predynastic Egypt and just miss the coronation of "Earth's first king". It is very strongly implied that the survivors fade quietly into the human population.]]

* ''Literature/DespoilersOfTheGoldenEmpire'' lives on this trope. It presents itself as a science fiction story about a military expedition to another planet, and is written in very scientific-sounding prose, but the story is actually about the conquest of Peru in the 1500s. In this case, it is only the reader who is fooled; the characters in the story all know full well what planet they're on. Hints are given to this fact throughout the story, though:

Bonus Points for it being not just a fictional tale set on Earth, but a highly accurate (if deliberately misleading) account of an historical event that actually happened (the conquest of Peru by Spaniards in the 1500s.1500s). In this case, it is only the reader who is fooled; the characters in the story all know full well what planet they're on. Hints are given to this fact throughout the story, though:

* ''LightNovel/ScrappedPrincess'' does this to the viewer, with a small hint that something might not be as it seems being at the beginning of the very first episode, and nothing more said about it until partway through the series. Everyone in the show is seen to be living in a catchall generic Middle Ages fantasy setting, and to the viewer, it looks like just another ''{{LightNovel/Slayers}}''-esque[=/=]''RecordOfLodossWar''-type anime based in some nondescript magic world that is kind of like our world, but not. [[spoiler: However, the truth is that they're in the far future in "our" world, and their conquerors have regressed everyone back to the Middle Ages in order to prevent them from even wanting to mount a resistance. The "magic" seen in the series is actually MagicFromTechnology, based on the tech maintaining their "prison", which is actually a tiny piece of the world suspended in the sky.]] Then again, the very beginning of the show has a bit of AstronomicZoom that reveals the setting to be [[spoiler: Korea]].
