The ''Creator/{{Vortexx}}'' was the last of these and even then was made up of reruns of previous shows. However in 2014, it's spot was brought out by Litton Entertainment which will show nothing but E/I shows come the fall. Thus bringing an end to the era of Saturday Morning Cartoons.

* ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'' discusses a lot how internet criticism is one day going to die, but in the end this is seen as cynical nonsense while "we're a family" wins out.

* ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee'' discusses a lot how internet criticism is one day going to die, but in the end this is seen as cynical nonsense while "we're a family" wins out. However, with the scandal of the website in April 2018 revealing the horrific backstage mistreatments of its contributors, many contributors left the channel and it may signify the end of the era about them being the biggest pool of critics in the internet.

* With the UsefulNotes/TheMillenniumAgeOfAnimation, many traditional animation techniques died out in lieu of digital technology, with the last animated series to be hand-painted on colloid either ending or switching to newer methods. The success of ''WesternAniamtion/ToyStory'' in the previous decade and the aforementioned ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' at the beginning of the millennium also led to the effective end of 2D animated features in North America.

* ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag'' features the end of UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfPiracy as a major part of the story, and Edward's CharacterArc. As the events of the game progress, Edward witnesses as each of his fellow pirate captains die off one by one, and their "pirate republic" in Nassau is overtaken by the British Navy, until Edward is the only one left, [[spoiler: driving him to abandon the pirate lifestyle for the Assassin Order]]. This bittersweet line of dialogue in the game's last scene sums it up quite well:
--> '''[[spoiler: Jenny]]:''' (excited) Do you think we'll see any pirates?
--> '''Edward:''' (sadly) No... There's not much chance of that anymore.

* Creator/RichardWagner's opera cycle ''Theatre/DerRingDesNibelungen'' chronicles the end of an age. In ''Das Rheingold'' Wotan is warned that a dark day is dawning for the gods. By the end of ''Siegfried'', Wotan's power has been broken by the destruction of his spear and also the last of the giants is dead. In ''Götterdämmerung'' the gods are finally destroyed, the dwarf Alberich who made the ring of power can only appear in his son's dreams and the ring itself is cleansed by fire and returned to the Rhine from which it came. Humanity are left alone in the world to make their own fate free of the corruption of supernatural beings.
