** The 1960s saw the end of the the golden era of Ocean liners. Most cite either the retirement of the ''SS United States'', the last ship entirely committed to a transatlantic route, in 1969 as the end of the grand liners.

This was because jet airliners could now do their job in a fraction of the time. The next few decades would see the end of ocean liners as a whole as more airports were constructed and there was no longer a need to transport people by ship.

** One of the most well known examples of this would be the meteorite collision that ended the Mesozoic era, and hence the extinction of the dinosaurs. And with the end of the age of the dinosaur, the rise of the mammals soon followed.

* The end of the Bronze Age brought with itself a collapse of several ancient cultures like Mycenaeans, the Hittite Empire or New Kingdom of Egypt.
* UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat is somehow both the End and the Dawn of a New Era. On one hand his conquests increased the knowledge of the world, spread Greek Civilization as far away as the Indus River and transformed society like few before him did. On the other hand, his empire brought the end of the Persian Empire, ended the classic period of Athenian civilization and the resulting Dark Ages saw the Decline of Greece in favor of Rome as the hegemony of the Mediterranean.

* ''Literature/KingsOfTheWyld'': With the monster population down and the world safe, gone are the days where a few strong fighters could wander into a nearby forest, kill a bunch of monsters, and get a name for themselves. Now most of the fighting is done in arenas, and the pageantry of the mercenaries has been cranked up until the knob falls off. [[spoiler:Gabe's RousingSpeech at the end points out that the world is obviously ''not'' saved, since there's a giant horde attacking Castia]].

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' takes place at the end of the Third Age and start of the Fourth. Though the game ended on a somewhat hopeful note, background revealed of the years following the events of ''Oblivion'' shows that the end of the Septim line and the death of the Tribunal in the earlier ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' made way for a time of increased strife, the destruction of Morrowind, and the collapse of the Empire.
** ''Morrowind'' has shades of this. The age of the Tribunal is over, with [[spoiler:Almalexia]] going crazy, [[spoiler:Sotha Sil]] dead and their power slowly fading away.
** A smaller example of this can be found in the ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' DLC ''Dragonborn''. On Solstheim, there is only one silt strider remaining. Its caretaker explains that when Red Mountain exploded, [[KillEmAll almost all of them were wiped out]]. [[DyingRace Now, they are extremely rare]] and the one the player encounters is one that happened to be discovered by chance, protected in a cave and is now dying of old age. For players used to ''Morrowind'' and the almost ubiquitous use of silt striders as a form of transportation, [[PlayerPunch this can come as a huge shock]].

* 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.

* August 1968 saw the withdrawal of the last remaining main line steam locomotives in Britain. Since July 1967 and the end of Steam in the South of England, steam had been restricted to lines in the North west. By August 1968, these locomotives were restricted to Lancashire, on goods working and the odd passenger service. The last revenue-earning runs were made on 3rd August, followed by a series of special trains the following day. After one last excursion a week later, the age of steam in Britain officially ended.
