* In Creator/KirBulychev's ''The City Above'', a join expedition made up of humans and [[TheReptilians frog-like]] aliens goes to a planet whose HumanAliens natives have recently nuked themselves into extinction. The aliens have a device that is capable of restoring/cloning a living being based on a viable cell sample. The goal is to attempt to resurrect the race and help them rebuild their irradiated and poisoned world (one side used nukes, the other released a poison). [[spoiler:In the second half of the novel, they discover that the military junta that has started the war have survived in an underground bunker and are pissed off at the off-worlders for making themselves at home, threatening to launch more nukes if they don't leave]].

* In Creator/KirBulychev's ''The City Above'', the Earth explorers are studying the centuries-old nuked ruins on the surface. Meanwhile HumanAliens struggle to survive underground. A "pipe-worker" fed up with this oppressive life leaves to search for "The City Above" or die trying. The book predates ''Literature/TheCityOfEmber'' by 3 decades, but resemblance is coincidental.

* In ''VisualNovel/AnalogueAHateStory'' the plot begins with a investigator sent to an abandoned and lifeless {{generation ship|s}} to investigate what the hell happened here. The ship's not in the best condition at this point, so there is some danger to the player character as well, though it's fairly low; even if the Mugunghwa explodes you could probably fly away in time. The logs a couple of helpful AIs show you all point to societal degeneration before someone wiped all of the population. It's all fun and games until you discover [[spoiler:that one of the AI helping you was the party pooper, and that the ship reactor is very close to exploding, so you have to work fast so the logs don't become LostForever]] In the sequel, ''VisualNovel/HatePlus'', we keep digging and discover how the things first degenerated to the state seen in the previous game.
