* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'': This is what happens after the climactic battle between All Might and [[spoiler: [[BigBad All for One]]. Although All for One was left defeated and subsequently imprisoned, the battle used up the last remaining "embers" of One for All that allowed All Might to remain a hero. Recognized throughout the world as the [[TheParagon Number One Hero]] and [[HopeBringer The Symbol of Peace]], it was his presence that inspired hope in the populace and served as a warning to villains. With his retirement, villains that had been driven into the shadows start coming out of the woodwork to strike out at a world that has lost its greatest protector. Other heroes have recognized this with the noted rise in crime rates being a sign of everything that All Might built is slowly crumbling down.]]

* With 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 ''WesternAnimation/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.

* In February 2018, Best Buy announced that, starting on July 1 of that year, they would no longer sell [[CompactDisc CDs]]. Around that same time, Target also announced that they were considering a major policy change regarding how they stocked CD's that would likely discourage record labels from shipping them to Target. Since these two companies were the largest retailers that still sold [=CDs=], it largely signaled the end of the mainstream distribution of music on [=CDs=] and other kinds of physical media.

* The Trisakti Incident in UsefulNotes/{{Indonesia}} at 1998 marked the end of the Suharto era known as Orde Baru, when many of Suharto's dirty secrets were exposed. For 32 years, he used corruption to build up Indonesia as a strong powerhouse in Asia and swiftly shutting down any of his oppositions, installing himself as a dictator. With the end of Orde Baru, Indonesia entered a new era of democracy, with all its advantages and disadvantages, but most of the stability provided by Orde Baru are gone.
