** The last book of the 3.5 edition was 'Elder Evils', which introduced various [[EldritchAbomination Elder Evils]] capable of [[ApocalypseHow wiping out whole campaign worlds]]-or at the very least, [[NothingIsTheSameAnymore radically altering them]]. [[WordOfGod According to interviews]], the idea was to give player the option of wiping out/changing their old campaign worlds to make one more compatible to the new system.

* The rise of Netflix, Red Box, Hulu and other site geared towards renting/streaming movies and t.v. shows online led to the decline and eventual extinction of Blockbuster and other video rental stores.

** A specific point that could be brought up for the cause of the dip in quality, especially in the United States, was the [[TVStrikes Writer's Strike of 2007-8]]. When the strike hit, networks fell back on RealityTelevision shows to pick up the slack. Then they found out that Reality TV not only performed just as well as, and sometimes better than, the more traditional scripted format, but it was far less costly to create and maintain. Now, almost every station on major networks in the U.S has at least one Reality or Reality-style TV show, some networks focusing on it almost entirely (i.e: Creator/{{TLC}}). SturgeonsLaw being what it is, a majority of these shows are regarded poorly, thanks in large part to [[LowestCommonDenominator the ever more tabloid quality of the subject matter]] and [[DocumentaryOfLies often lying about just how much of the show is actually scripted, even when it is painfully obvious]].

* In ''KeroroGunsou'', a flashback chapter revealed that shortly before Dororo reunited with his platoon mates, the denizens of the ninja village he had been living with (including his friend Koyuki) were forced to re-integrate with normal Japanese society after Japan's "department of ninjutsu" was disbanded.

* This was touched on in the ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' sequels. There is an interpretation that the whole trilogy deals with the end of the age of freedom and adventure in a symbolic kind of way.

** In ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd'', Sparrow and Barbossa had a similar conversation; the point gets driven home when they stumble upon the body of the Kraken.
-->'''Barbossa:''' The world used to be a bigger place.
-->'''Jack:''' The world's still the same. There's just less in it.

* ''Literature/OrkneyingaSaga'': The summer after the death of Svein Asleifarson on what was supposed to be his last viking expedition, his sons Olaf and Andres set up partition walls in Svein's great drinking hall at Gairsay. This marks the end of Viking Age customs, as people other than kings and jarls do no longer go raiding and have no longer need of drinking halls.

* A GrowingUpSucks example is when your most significant role models in childhood start [[AuthorExistenceFailure succumbing to the mortal coil]]. The announcement of DavidBowie's death of cancer on 10 January, 2016, is a prime example.

* The onset of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar essentially marked the end of the age of traditional warfare, largely because the advent of nuclear weapons suddenly made it obsolete; while the United States and the Soviet Union remained bitter enemies until the latter's downfall, they ''never'' formally declared war on each other, knowing full well that the resultant nuclear exchange could very well bring about the end of human civilization. Every war that the two superpowers waged during the Cold War was a small-scale "proxy war" aimed at containing Communism (or spreading it). Likewise, every major war that the United States has declared since the fall of the Soviet Union has been a small-scale war aimed at containing terrorism and rogue states. It's quite unlikely that the world will ever see another war on the scale of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, with the world's most powerful nations duking it out on the field of battle.

** For all his flaws, WoodrowWilson also had serious reservations about [[WorldWarII what would come next]]:
--> "I can predict with absolute certainty that within another generation there will be another world war if the nations of the world do not concert the method by which to prevent it."

* ''[[FanFic/IcedFairysANewWorld A New World]]'' depicts a Gensokyo where Yukari has long since died. Without her to smuggle human meat from the other side of the barrier, human-youkai relations degrade to a far harsher balance than Reimu could ever have dreamed of, beginning a slow descent into oblivion. Ran and Keine fear this is the start of Gensokyo's death, [[spoiler:but Maribel arrives with time to spare to prevent this and begin reversing the stagnating effects, ultimately triggering Yukari's last trap and ushering Gensokyo, Luna, and all of Earth, into the DawnOfAnEra.]]
