* ''Series/DoctorWho'' touches on this in the episode "Hell Bent" where an immortal woman known as Me is, for a time, the last sentient being in the universe. It is implied that she spends her time watching the last of the stars die while sitting next to an empty chair and a chessboard, with no one to play with.

* The protagonists of both the original ''Film/DawnOfTheDead1978'' and [[Film/DawnOfTheDead2004 the remake]] do this on a smaller scale with a shopping mall. In fact, this is largely the point (of the older movie, at least). It gets very {{Anvilicious}} when you see the little perfect world the protagonists have constructed for themselves, with things "borrowed" from the mall. The zombies are largely a distraction from the commercialism-[[BuffySpeak things]]. Sorry for FanWank.
