* ''Film/FantasticFour: Rise of the ComicBook/SilverSurfer'' ends with ComicBook/{{Galactus}} (who in the film appears as a huge sentient cloud ''several times'' the size of Earth) '''exploding''' in a suitably impressive fashion, all while he was about halfway through munching on the Earth's core. Basically, it's the ''Film/IndependenceDay'' mothership times a hundred, plus whatever damage you would expect from having huge, miles deep holes buried in the planet's crust.

*** It's been [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4Y3dlTDAxw theorized]] that the destruction of the first Death Star was catastrophic on a scale that all previous theories couldn't match - an ''economic'' scale. Building it was the most expensive project in recorded history. It carried a massive amount of manpower and combat strength. ''Democratic government'' had been dismantled in favor of literal gunship diplomacy, based around this one military asset. Despite that, life in the galaxy was pretty much "business as usual". It was just another government project, and few people outside the Empire's even knew it ''existed'' - not out of any attempt at secrecy, but general ''apathy''. The Galactic Empire was rolling along smoothly, and most people didn't even ''care'' that Alderaan was destroyed, like most didn't think twice about Waco. When it was destroyed, however, it was pretty much [[TheWarOnTerror 9/11]]; massive reductions in private spending, increased sympathy for the government - it drove the galaxy into a recession, and the war against the Rebellion into overdrive. It still worked out damn well for the Rebellion, as it proved that the Empire not only wasn't invincible, but it's single most powerful asset couldn't protect itself from "terrorists."

** Okay, good news, bad news, worse news, horrible news. Good news is, the COG discover the breakthrough of the millennium: fabricator technology, which allows them to take all that scrap from the war and turn it into self-sufficient solar-powered cities. Worse news is, the COG are back. Horrible news is, the remnants of the lambent have mutated into something weird and accidentally resurrected the precursor race to the Locust, starting a new war with a weird new enemy. And the horrible news is, the lambent pulse affected the very forces of nature, causing hurricanes made of ''fire'' that pop up every HOUR. So yes, people are going to die.

* [[Film/{{Oblivion2013}} Oblivion]]: Even with the Tet gone, humanity is screwed. The planet is a wasteland, most of its water is gone. The survivors have no chance of rebuilding civilization again because the planet now lacks the necessary resources for it. Also, the remains of the Moon are still in orbit and will provide a constant source of large-scale impact events that through their sheer number eventually WILL cause a massive extinction of whatever multi-cellular life still lingers on.

* The cast of ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'' will all be dead by that time next year most likely, which kind of puts a damper on the happy ending.

** Since it's [[SoBadItsGood Plan 9 From Outer Space]], the fact that all life in the movie's universe could be destroyed isn't necessarily a bad thing, and many viewers would likely consider it a relief or even a mercy.

* The Rapture, as depicted by Tim [=LaHaye=] and Jerry Jenkins in ''LeftBehind'', means the sudden disappearance of every premillennial dispensationalist Christian and every child in the world (including unborn children), and causes thousands to die in plane crashes. The authors, however, seem to have no idea of how devastating a catastrophe like this would be, and life returns to normal a few days later.
* The ''ChristCloneTrilogy'' is even worse. The ''Left Behind'' series has a kind of cartoonish logic to all the disasters and plagues due to the terrible writing of the twin authors. The author of the Christ Clone series can actually write, and all the disasters are lovingly detailed. You'll be having nightmares after reading it, trust me.

* ''Disney/MulanII'' is pretty infamous for this trope: The main plot is that Mulan and company are moving three princesses to a neighboring kingdom as part of an ArrangedMarriage to the other kingdom's princes. However, the three princesses and Mulan's old friends Ling, Yao, and Chein Po wind up falling for each other, so Mulan helps the princesses to follow their hearts and get out of the arranged marriage so they be with the ones they truly love. Happily ever after, right? Well...the thing is, the reason the princesses were in this arranged marriage in the first place was so both their home kingdom and the other kingdom could be united to repel an invasion by the Huns. Because the princesses didn't follow through with the arranged marriage and married the soldiers instead, it's easy to infer that the alliance of the two kingdoms didn't occur and that the Huns invaded and subsequently took over China without the two armies united against them.

*Averted in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. The four suddenly realize that no matter who brings the Black Tower down, it will spell death for millions of Tayhil and monsters. The Pyar gods had promised them a wish apiece if they helped bring the Tower down, and though they'd been planning to wish that they could take their magic home with them, they painfully decide to ask the Pyar gods to save the baddies and just send them home in their normal bodies.
