* The ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' universe, of course, had the highly advanced Forerunners, who were forced to activate their Halos and destroy themselves and all sentient life in the galaxy to starve out the Flood. There's a great quote in Halo 2 from one of the Halo AIs that demonstrates the amount of time that passed:
--> ''2401 Penitent Tangent:'' This installation has a successful utilization record of 1.2 trillion simulated and 1 actual.

* In the backstory of the ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'' series, the entire galaxy was part of a Golden Age under the Protoculture Stellar Republic before a civil war destroyed them, leaving only their giant humanoid armies to roam the galaxy and continue fighting.

* The galaxy of Niven's ''KnownSpace'' was once ruled by a foolish, simpleminded race of creatures whose only notable attribute was the ability to utterly dominate the minds of others. When the inevitable rebellion happened after thousands of years, their final, technologically amplified command was for everything advanced enough to receive their commands to commit suicide.

* Creator/AlanMoore's proposed title, ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twilight_of_the_Superheroes Twilight of the Superheroes,]]'' would've dealt with this, but in reference to heroes, instead of actual gods. It was designed to give a sort of definitive end to all the heroes, as ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightReturns'' did for Batman. Though according to Moore, the intent was to finally raise comic book stories to the status of legends, since without an ending it did not become a true legend:

* VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft has this, to a degree, in Cataclysm. After defeating Deathwing, the final boss of Cataclysm, a cutscene plays revealing that [[spoiler: the remaining Dragon Aspects have lost nearly all of their power as a result of the battle, and are now mortal.]]

* VideoGame/TheBannerSaga has this, as should come to know surprise considering how much the game borrows from Norse mythology. The gods are dead, the sun frozen in place in the sky, and a seemingly invincible army known as the Dredge is tearing a path through the North. The player's goal is not safety, but survival.

* ImmortalDefense has this and DeathOfTheOldGods as a main theme of the game, although it's debatable if pathspace defenders can be actually considered gods. [[spoiler: Fittingly enough, Götterdämmerung is actually a title of a level in one of the final campaigns, showcased at the peak of your insanity.]]

* Likewise, there is [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/253045/i-am-going-to-save-and-or-destroy-equestria I Am Going To Save And/OrDestroy Equestria]], where Luna and Celestia ended up destroying one another in the final battle one thousand years ago, rather than Nightmare Moon being sealed away. In short, the two good "gods" died, and their passing has disastrous consequences... since there are still plenty of '''evil''' "gods" left. Due to how vital the princesses' existence was to Equestrian society (Making the fiends go away and powering the seals that kept them in Tartarus, making the sun move up and down, etc.), their death causes the collapse of Equestrian civilization as well, since without the princesses, there's no one left to stop the fiends of Tartarus, or to stop an invasion by a foreign army... at least, not until the start of the story.

* While there are plenty of Fal'cie still around after FinalFantasyXIII, [[spoiler: the events of that game put a definitive end to the all-controlling Cocoon Fal'cie]]. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' has [[spoiler: the death of Etro, which causes a TimeCrash that leads to the world seen in the third game.]]
