* The DownerEnding of ''A Colder War'' by Creator/CharlesStross involves the remnants of humanity eking out an existence in the DomedCity XK-Masada, entered through a PortalDoor to a planet nearing the end of its tectonic life with the ruins of a long-disappeared civilization. The RuleOfSymbolism is obvious to everyone. EarthThatWas has long since become this trope once the [[CthulhuMythos Eater of Souls]] consumed everyone there.

* The "pit-stop" planet and alien spaceport in Creator/AndreNorton's ''[[Literature/TheTimeTraders Galactic Derelict]]''. The home planet of the alien spacecraft is still inhabited by two primitive alien tribes who are at war, but it is made clear that they are not the civilization that built the ruined city they dwell in.

* Happens occasionally in the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' universe. Sometimes it happens when a planet gets swallowed up in a Warp space related-anomaly, and that world is physically twisted, or sometimes it becomes a haunted with no sign of the original human population. Most often, however, this trope describes worlds that were all that was left behind after an [[ApocalypseWow Exterminatus]].

** The [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E8SilenceInTheLibrary planet-sized]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead Library]] has a million million intelligent lifeforms following a catastrophe 100 years prior, though the Doctor and his allies can't seem to find any of them.

[[spoiler:There's a species of flesh-eating bacteria that can move small objects and think through a hive mind, but are generally stupid due to their weakness to light and subsequent minimal populations - then they get into a library through infected paper, and it turns out there's enough darkness, unwitting civilians, and information to develop sentience.]]

* ''Film/BattleBeyondTheStars''. Shad goes to a notorious WretchedHive seeking TheMagnificentSecretSamurai only to find the planet deserted except for ProfessionalKiller Gelt (who's only there because he's hiding from everyone else).

-->'''Gelt:''' The other planets in this sector formed a protective league. They raised an army and cleaned us out. We made them nervous.
