* The premise of ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' is that the destruction wrought by the cycles has all but doomed the world. The world is literally running on embers, the Dark is out of control, and even the boundaries of life and death have broken down, with something bringing about the revival of ancient threats like the Everlasting Stone Dragons and the fallen Lords of Cinder. The world may not be able to survive another cycle.

* This is the main plotline of the ''Franchise/{{Lufia}}'' series: every hundred years or so, the four Sinistrals appear and attack humanity. Sometimes they succeed in ruining the world, but other times a hero (the protagonist of each game) stops them. In any case, the Sinistrals will inevitably be revived in another century.

* The dream plane of Dal Quor in the ''{{Eberron}}'' cosmology is said to work like this; aside from mortals' dreams, there's also the Quor Tarai, the big dream of the plane itself. When that changes, so does the nature of ''every single native of the plane!''

* In the world of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', Desolations happen roughly every three thousand years, each of them nearly destroying mankind and taking civillization back to the stone age. The current state - over four and a half thousand years without one - is a prelude to the worst Desolation in history.

* Discussed and [[DefiedTrope defied]] on ''Series/{{Lost}}''. [[spoiler:Jacob's enemy]] says that a series of events repeats itself because of the actions of humans, and it always ends the same. [[spoiler:Jacob]] replies "It only ends once. Anything before that is just progress." In season 6,[[{{God}} Jacob]] summons [[spoiler: people to the island to prove that RousseauWasRight, while the [[{{Satan}} Man in Black]] is set to prove [[spoiler: that HumansAreBastards]]. But so far there's just [[GreyAndGrayMorality shades and shades of gray]]. That in turn was revealed to be just a tiny fraction of the actual recurrence: [[spoiler: the island itself, or perhaps the protector, summons people to the island. Always have and always will]].

* The destruction of humanity's control over magic in ''Literature/TheAscendantKingdomsSaga'' is not the first time, due to it requiring magic to be anchored to mortal or vampire bloodlines, which can be severed. There's no apparent set period but the last time happened about four hundred years before the start of the series, and some of the vampire characters were around for it.
