* ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'' has two examples of this:
** Before the start of the game, [[spoiler:Devola and Popola, or rather, different versions of the ones who appeared in the original ''VideoGame/{{Nier}}'', send humanity's data to the server on the Moon to be stored in the hopes that it could be used to revive the long-extinct race]].
** Towards the end, [[spoiler:the machine network launches an Ark into outer space, carrying the memories of the machine lifeforms within, among them the still-living Adam and Eve, as well as their own ghost consciousness based on humanity. Whether they will ever reach a destnation or travel space for eternity is not an issue for them. If the player chooses to, 9S can accompany them on their journey]].

*** Also from [=ME3=], we have [[spoiler: the Crucible, a superweapon designed to fight the Reapers by one cycle, and left for the next to find. That cycle found it, but was unable to complete it, so they documented what design changes they could, and hid it for the ''next'' generation, passing it on and on, through the ages, always hoping that the next might be able to finish their work. Every reiteration of the Crucible brought it closer to completion, and each cycle that failed to complete it ensured that the knowledge was left for the next. It's even mentioned that the Crucible was extremely simple in design, ensuring that the next cycle would be able to translate it with the limited knowledge they would find in the ruins of the cycle that came before it.]]

Oddly enough the knowledge of what it actually ''does'' or how it works was lost long ago; every cycle just knows that it was something the previous cycle tried but never finished.]]

** Speaking of art, one of the last things [[Series/TheJoyOfPainting Bob Ross]] did before dying of lymphoma was to certify other people to teach his painting style so the world would always have some happy little trees.

* In ''LightNovel/NoGameNoLife'', the former "Fool King" of Immanity had challenged the Warbeast race eight times to a game, betting large portions of territory despite the kingdom's resources being nearly spent. While most of the territory was useless with his people's existing technology, this still ended with eight losses that cost his people the majority of their territory and left them with nothing but a single city remaining. However, while this appeared to be a fool act that hastened the demise of the human race, the truth is [[spoiler:the king knew the kingdom's resources were running out fast and that he personally had little chance to defeat any of the other races, so he challenged the Warbeasts who required contestants to have their memories erased in order to prevent loss on their part, used his resources and apparent weakness to convince them to play with the decreased cost of not telling anyone as long as he lived, and then worked around this pledge by sealing his knowledge in a book to be opened by the next king. In this way, he managed to leave his successor enough knowledge to fight the Warbeasts and win.]]

Then, instead of passing the crown to his daughter, he arranged it that the next king would be chosen by a series of contests. In this way, he managed to leave gave his race a fighting chance, ensuring that the knowledge he'd accumulated would be in the hands of a talented successor enough knowledge capable of using it to fight challenge the Warbeasts and win.]]

** Also from VideoGame/StarcraftII: The ''Spear of Adun'' is an absolutely gigantic spaceship, housing the best technology, weapons, culture, warriors, power sources and warpdrive from a time in [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens Protoss]] history where it was experiencing a GoldenAge. Created entirely because said GoldenAge Protoss realized that their GoldenAge ''might not last forever'' and that sometime in the future, their descendants might be facing their DarkestHour. So instead of just resting on their laurels, they put all their technological know-how into creating the best possible light to fling into the future, sealing a good chunk of their society away in stasis while telling their offspring 'Do not break the stasis of [[SealedGoodInACan this spaceship]] unless shit has '''''really''''' hit the fan'. A little more than a thousand years later and their descendants are indeed facing their DarkestHour. [[spoiler: The Spear of Adun is broken out of stasis, and it ''succeeds'' in the purpose for which it was created.
