* At the end of ''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}'', ComicBook/TheFlash "[[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong fixes]]" the DCUniverse by merging it with the {{Wildstorm}} and [[VertigoComics Vertigo]] universes, resulting in the streamlined ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' timeline. While it's understandable that DC would want to simplify its continuity, this raises some serious FridgeHorror. For one, when Flash's CosmicRetcon made all the heroes YoungerAndHipper, it ''[[CessationOfExistence ERASED A TON OF CHARACTERS FROM HISTORY]]''. Flash flat-out wiped ComicBook/GreenArrow's son and granddaughter from existence, as well as ''his own sidekick's twin children'', and will likely [[KarmaHoudini never have to answer for it]]. NiceJobBreakingItHero indeed...

* By the end of ''Film/WarOfTheWorlds'', [[PlotArmor the main characters are fine]] but billions are dead and the planet is in ruins.

* One of the most important events in the ''VisualNovel/Danganronpa'' series is the Biggest, Most Awful, Most Tragic Event in Human History, usually shortened to The Tragedy. It's described as an extraordinary form of social unrest that spiralled out of control, culminating into worldwide chaos. The [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganronpa2 other]] [[VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls games]] give some additional details. Thanks to the influence of the Ultimate Despair, there was widespread terrorism, coup d'etats, wars solely for the sake of death and destruction, extreme pollution of the atmosphere, etc. It's safe to assume that '''a lot''' of people have killed, no doubt in the millions.

* Freaking ''ghosts'' are rampaging through the city, the Mayor is seeking counsel from New York's Archbishop, and one of the heroes points out the biblical implications of the dead rising from the grave. How likely is it that church Mr. Stay-puft stomped on in ''Film/Ghostbusters1984'' would '''not''' be full of frantically-praying believers when it got flattened?

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'''s final episode claims everyone in the world hates Lelouch and that with his death the cycle of hatred is broken. Before this, some people in the crowd talked about Emperor Lelouch killing entire families of those who speak up against him, but we never hear about exactly how much death and destruction was caused by Lelouch's purges. Either Emperor Lelouch had to actively oppress a considerable number of people within three months or at least enough to give the impression that his regime was serious about such threats. The previous Emperor, Lelouch's father, was a racist, self-proclaimed SocialDarwinist who believed the other nations deserved their miserable treatment by being too weak to avoid being conquered by [[TheEmpire Britannia]]. Just [[FridgeHorror what]] did Lelouch do to top ''that'' in only three months? The only thing that's sufficiently clear is he managed to control the entire world, instead of just about 1/3 of it like his father did.

** As of Rebirth, ComicBook/TheFlash and [[ComicBook/TrinityOfSinPandora Pandora]], who convinced The Flash to merge the universes, have been shown to NOT be the cause of the YoungerAndHipper CosmicRetcon that erased those characters. [[spoiler:The actual culprit is [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Dr. Manhattan]], who is messing with the entire DC Universe from outside of it.]]

** StoriesPathOfDestinies has, as its name implies, a ton of different endings that you go through caught in a GroundhogDayLoop in the hopes of collecting enough information to plot your way to the GoldenEnding. Several endings have entirely-un-implied holocausts going on, up to and including [[ApocalypseHow the destruction of the entire universe]]. A number of less-severe 'bad endings' simply has TheEmperor and LaResistance both get wiped out (along with Reynardo, the main character), and then make it clear that the resulting power-vacuum soon cause the entire empire to descend into chaos, anarchy and banditry. However, while the GoldenEnding has Reynardo escape [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl with his love-interest]], he leaves the Emperor and most of his fleet destroyed, and the Rebel Council dead. There's no apparent reason why the rest of the empire should fare any better than in any other 'both sides got killed' ending, suggesting that it's not a particularly happy ending for anyone BUT Reynardo...
