* In the ''{{Discworld}}'', the metaphysical Dwarf concept of the Gingunnagap fulfils the definition of the fundamental Void of nothing, except perhaps unformed chaos-potential. The unformed Firmament which eventually gave rise to our own universe following a Big Bang is also described in ''Discworld/TheScienceOfDiscworld''.

* In modern physics there is never truly a void. Fields that define the laws of physics permeate the universe and ripples in those fields take the form of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_particle virtual particles]] that seem to pop in and out of existence even in a perfect vacuum.

Given [[TimeAbyss enough time]], however, ''anything'' could pop up in theory: from a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boltzmann_brain sentient entity]] to an ''entire Universe'' as stated above.
* Likely related to the former is dark energy, which can be broadly described as a the vacuum giving a negative pressure that opposes gravity causing despite its very low density that the Universe expands faster and faster. It's not known if said acceleration will continue forever, to the point of even [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Rip ripping apart]] the Universe, will stop, or if it will become attractive causing the Universe to collapse on itself.

* A Black hole itself is anything but matter (unless you call being ''pure gravity'' matter), it is a region of space-time which can be entered but cannot be left. It has mass, momentum ('rotation') and electrical charge that defines its shape and how it influence the world around it. For all practical purposes entering black hole is CessationOfExistence and the way by which it is enforced (pulling in the fabric of space-time at speed faster than light) allows black holes to shape universe on galactic scale.
* It's often thought the Universe [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ex_nihilo#Modern_physics was born]] from a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_fluctuation Quantum fluctuation]] in the Void.[[note]]In quantum mechanics, there's no such thing as a vacuum, being filled with [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_particle particles appearing and disappearing.]][[/note]]

** It's later expanded on in ''Legion'' that the Void is the opposite of the Holy Light. It is an all consuming nothingness that birthed the Void Lords who desire a CessationOfExistence.

* In a CreatorStanislawLem story (probably from The Cyberiad) a MadScientist creates a machine which eliminates from existence everything that starts with a certain letter, and it gets more void-y from there.

* The [[BigBad true villains]] of the [[AWrinkleInTime Time Quartet]] series by MadeleineLEngle are The Echthroi. Beings who want to spread nothing on spiritual level, destroying not just life and matter but ''souls'', and ruining all existence from beginning to end. Their "true" form is described as being like a gash in existence or a streak of Nothingness which is so terrible it causes 'reality' to scream, even in space.
