* In the novelizations of ''Series/RedDwarf'', Earth was eventually abandoned and used as a garbage dump by the rest of the inhabited solar system, before some of the volatile waste exploded and flung it out of the solar system (possibly a reference to ''Space1999''). Lister later crash-lands on it and has an EarthAllAlong moment.

* In ''Videogame/ChildrenOfADeadEarth'', when WorldWarThree broke out the two superpowers used rapidly escalating weapons of mass destruction, [[ColonyDrop slinging asteroids and comets]] at each other using their orbital assets. This caused a complete breakdown in Earth's biosphere, dooming the planet to runaway greenhouse heating effect; within a few decades, it became a new Venus. A few million people were able to make it off-planet to the ColonizedSolarSystem.

** In the backstory of ''The Beast Master'', the alien Xik performed a "burnoff" of the surface of the Earth, killing all humans living on it. Luckily the human race had already spread out to other planets in the galaxy.
