* 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 ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' from one of the Halo AIs that demonstrates the amount of time that passed:

* 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. Interestingly, the Forerunners themselves ''deliberately'' enacted one of these themselves, against the StarfishAliens that preceded them, out of a combination of paranoia, racism, resentment, and envy. There's a great quote in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' from one of the Halo AIs that demonstrates the amount of time that passed:passed between the extinction of the Forerunners and the Human-Covenant War:

** The legendarium also prophesies of a more literal end/renewal of the world, when Morgoth will finally escape the Great Void into which he was cast at the end of the First Age and destroy the Sun and the Moon, but Eärendil will cast him down to Earth, where the armies of Ar-Pharazôn the Golden will reawaken to do battle against Morgoth. Finally Túrin Turambar will slay him once and for all and the Children of Húrin will finallb be avenged. In the tumult of battle the lost Silmarils will be cast out of the Earth and Water and Fëanor will return them to the Valar, who will use them to rekindle the Two Trees and the World will be recreated anew.

Interestingly, the fate of Ar-Pharazôn and his forces is entirely uncertain; the published text says only that he will return at the end of time, with no real description of his loyalties or what state he will be in.

* In ''Series/{{Angel}}'' and ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', the [[EldritchAbomination Old Gods]] were overthrown long ago and supplanted by humanity. It's really driven home when an Old God returns in ''Angel'' only to find her armies long dead and crumbling to dust while her own replacement body can't withstand her own power. The sight of a Lovecraftian horror beaten down by time, trapped in a human shell with only a fraction of her former power, and utterly alone without a purpose in life is [[BrokenAngel rather sad.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Music/BlindGuardian'' album ''Beyond the Red Mirror'' has a song "Twilight of the gods", which is about the gods, if not dying, then at least going to a long sleep.

'''WebComic/{{Nodwick}}:''' Virtually none... Magic has supplanted technology, and the secretive nature of its practitioners has resulted in most knowledge becoming lost. We're a feudal society, wars are common, and there's the monster problem. Plus, constant conflicts between the gods ensure that little philosophical progress is ever made.\\
