* Radio announcements in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' [[InfallibleBabble mention rumours]] that there is a tree growing somewhere in the Capital Wasteland. Following up on this, the Vault Dweller discovers a hidden grove of lush vegetation inhabited by a group of druids who worship a sentient tree, the result of an FEV accident. The player's actions affect whether the glade is left in peace, destroyed, or allowed to spread across the Wasteland as a New Eden.

* In ''TheStand'' by Creator/StephenKing,[[note]]partially inspired by ''Earth Abides''[[/note]] the characters watch America being reclaimed by nature, which seems to bounce back nicely in the absence of humans, despite TheAntichrist lurking about ready to bring about the Apocalypse. In particular, TheProfessor Glen Bateman spends a large portion of time talking about how everything has changed, [[LuddWasRight possibly for the better]] without all those people. On the other hand, ThePlague killed almost all the domestic animals, too, and left the rats and such.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Machine_Stops ''The Machine Stops'']] is a science fiction novella by E. M. Forster (HowardsEnd, ''Literature/APassageToIndia'') set in a dystopian future where humanity lives in cubicles, communicating only via technology and experiencing everything second-hand. Outside the planet is livable but the titular Machine has rendered humanity dependent on it. Written in 1909.

Often used to make the point that the Earth would be a so much better place [[HumansAreBastards if it weren't for all the people]], or more succinctly, that LuddWasRight. ([[UnfortunateImplications This might suggest]] that [[OmnicidalManiac massive genocide]] is [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans justifiable]].) If a group of survivors in space is smaller and not planning on a disaster, that's ButWhatAboutTheAstronauts.

* Subverted in the new ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'', in which [[spoiler:they arrive at Earth only to find that it was thoroughly nuked two thousand years ago, and is ''still'' an uninhabitable wasteland]].

* The end of ''WesternAnimation/WallE;; is ''all over'' this trope. At least in the credits. When the movie was first shown to test audiences before Creator/{{Pixar}} made the "humanity restoring Earth" montage, about half the audience walked away with the rather realistic assumption that humanity died less than a week after they returned to Earth.

* When Durham Red [[HumanPopsicle emerged from stasis]] to start her own series in ''[[TwoThousandAD 2000 AD]]'', Earth was considered lost by the humans and mutants of the future. How did they lose it? Turns out that it was teleported to the far reaches of the galaxy to act as a prison for [[PhysicalGod the most powerful mutant ever]]. In the meantime, the world recovered and became a lush paradise. Predictably, it did not stay this way.

* In ''LastExile'', [[spoiler:The show is set in an [[CityInABottle hourglass shaped space station]] (which is why the EyeCatch says "Last Exile In the Bottle"), and Last Exile is a transport ship to take anyone who wants back to Earth.]]
* In ''EurekaSeven'', [[spoiler:humans fled the earth and returned years later]]
* Twisted in ''TokyoMewMew''. The ancestors of the BigBad and his followers were originally from Earth, and fled into space after it seemed like they were about to die off. They ended up on a very harsh planet, and upon finally returning to Earth, it looks perfect in comparison. ''Then'' they notice that humans are taking this paradise for granted, littering and polluting. This starts their initial desire to KillAllHumans.

* Implied in ''PaleCocoon''. [[spoiler:Humans escaped to the Moon to avoid environmental destruction, but somehow lost their written history, and started to believe they were living underneath the destroyed Earth. In the end the protagonist as the first person to go to the upper layers of the colony in centuries sees a blue, pristine Earth up in the sky, implying that the planet was healed long ago, but no-one thought to look.]]

* {{Megazone23}} Part 3 has one city in the whole world, [[LampshadeHanging unsurprisingly named]] Eden. Though after meeting [[spoiler: the computer AIs]] Eve and Adam in the first two parts, it's hardly surprising.

* A minor point in Creator/AndreyLivadny's ''TheHistoryOfTheGalaxy'' series. At the start of the setting, Earth is overpopulated and suffering from ecological catastrophes. As a result, the President of the Earth Alliance initiates a war with the Free Colonies in order to provide space to "offload" extra population. The war lasts for decades, resulting in massive casualties and constant emigration of Earthlings to newly-discovered worlds. After Earth is defeated, the newly-created Confederacy of Suns leaves it alone. When a character returns to Earth 1000 years later, lush forests and jungles cover it. There are barely any cities left, given that the entire population of Earth is now barely a few million. However, the oceans are not reborn (they dried up earlier) and are instead covered with plant growth. Not that anyone cares about Earth at this point. Humanity has moved on and only remembers Earth in the context of the war.
