* ArthurCClarke's ''Literature/ChildhoodsEnd'' follows this form, with two twists: the setting is science fiction, not fantasy and the present-day real-world is construed to be the Golden Age, relative to a (future) alien invasion.

* ''Manga/OnePiece''. Several characters have different views of what exactly this "New Age" is about. For example, the Marines seem to think of it as an age where pirates are more ruthless than ever, whereas Trafalgar Law thinks of it as an age where the Marines' days are numbered. Eustass Kid seems to hold the belief that pirates are in an EvilPowerVacuum, dog-piling over each other to get at One Piece -- not so much about being the Pirate King anymore. Donquixote Doflamingo thinks its nature isn't fixed, and instead will be [[WrittenByTheWinners decided by whoever wins the current conflicts]]. And Blackbeard? He thinks of it as the age of [[TakeOverTheWorld his own world domination]].

* Within the context of CartoonNetwork it can be said that ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddysBigPictureShow'' was not only the end of ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' but also the end of the classic Cartoon Cartoons era as a whole, ending a run that had started more than 10 years before. A JohnnyBravo film seeing him going to Bollywood which wrapped up his series premiered two years later in 2011, which is seen simply either as a hidden parting gift or a throwback of the era as the film's existence is not that well known and the Bollywood influence overshadows the Cartoon Cartoon "style".

** On top of that, the Global Financial Crisis, a.k.a. the 'Great Recession', of 2008 onwards could be heralding the beginning of the end of the neo-liberal financial sector dominance that was spearheaded by UsefulNotes/MargaretThatcher and UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan. What sets the GFC apart from previous recessions is that large financial institutions that managed to survive TheGreatDepression of the 1930s and subsequent recessions, and heavily benefited from deregulation in the 1980s, were at the heart of the crisis. In fact, David Smick of the [[AmericanNewspapers Washington Post]] wrote in 2012 that the "[[http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/what-will-replace-the-globalization-model/2012/10/16/57cf62da-0e6d-11e2-bd1a-b868e65d57eb_story.html globalization model of the past 30 years is cracking up. And there appears to be no new model to replace it.]]"

* In the Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom timeline ''Literature/AMorePersonalUnion'', the conclusion of the Great War completely alters the course of European history, as [[spoiler: the Hapsburgs lose control of Spain and the Holy Roman Empire, while the latter also loses its northern half to Denmark and Poland.]]

** The bankruptcy of Commodore in 1994 marked the end of prominent alternatives to the PC platform. A combination of mis-management and difficulties producing a decent upgrade without breaking compatibility saw the Amiga winding down into a very small hobbyist platform, while the competing Atari ST had already been out of production for a while. At the same time, Japan's PC-98 and FM-Towns started slowly integrating PC compatibility until they eventually became completely homogenised. Only the Apple Macintosh remains, and even that has migrated to using Intel chipsets.
