* The ''Literature/{{Remnants}}'' series begins with the Earth being hit by an asteroid, and shattering. Five hundred people escape the destruction on the Mayflower spacecraft. Later, the [[AnyoneCanDie few remaining]] space-colonists from the Mayflower, awakened from their suspended animation, return to the shattered rock that was Earth. [[spoiler: Turns out not everyone on Earth was killed; some semblance of human society still struggles on. And still more people die, because it's that kind of series.]]

* In ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet'', Earth is only a legend to the Human Galactic Alliance, the civilization the protagonist Ledo hails from. Nobody bothers looking for it because it is believed to have completely frozen over. [[spoiler:That part is actually true: Earth did go into a massive Ice Age that forced the majority of humanity to leave it behind. However, in the time since, it has thawed and is once again teeming with life, albeit mostly aquatic life.]]

* Another non-Earth example: The D'ni of the VideoGame/{{Myst}} series originated on a world called Garternay, which became uninhabitable when its sun began growing dim.
