** The implication is there that they did indeed create the Xenomorphs as the perfect biological nuke.

* The ''{{Literature/Shannara}}'' Series has an interesting take on this, as the series is set in the future, it's our current civilisation which is the precursor Civilisation.

* ''Literature/RoguesOfTheRepublic:'' The "ancients" colonized the continent thousands of years ago, bringing with them incredible MagiTech and all manner of servants, including all the human races, elves, and dwarves. Most modern civilizations are built on the scraps of technology they left behind, and even though none of it is operating perfectly, it is still capable of incredible things. They left the world in order to [[spoiler:protect it from the Glimmering Folk. As long as the ancients are gone, the Glimmering Folk cannot step foot on the world or any other connected to it]].

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', there's a series of ruins called "vaults" spread across the habitable worlds of Andromeda's Heleus cluster featuring blindly advanced technology and tended to by strange synthetic constructs that Peebee dubs "Remnants". We know from the get-go that these were left behind by an earlier civilization for some unknown purpose; it's only late in the game that we learn [[spoiler: they're the creations of a hyper-advanced race called the Jardann. The Jardann also created most of Andromeda's wildlife out of a test tube along with the angara, which explains why the angara don't remember their origins or most of their history]]. The story goes that [[spoiler: the Jardann left behind their technology, including the vaults (which are essentially giant terraforming machines that can be manipulated to alter the environments of entire planets) for the angara to discover and use as they colonized the cluster]]. Whether or not they [[spoiler: intended to make their presence known to the angara is unknown, because they aborted the project and fled Heleus centuries ago after the Scourge - a giant superweapon - detonated with the force of a large supernova and destroyed the environments of the garden worlds the Jardann had created]]. They weren't around to see that the Scourge, while a destructive and possibly permanent presence in Heleus, was not fatal and the angara survived.

** It's also revealed that the Protheans themselves had their own Precursor race to learn from. And so on, and so forth. Each cycle leaves something behind for the next one to find. The ultimate artifact appears to be the [[spoiler:Crucible]], whose construction started millions of years ago and was continued each cycle by a new race culminating in [[spoiler:humanity and their contemporaries in its cycle ([[MultipleEndings possibly]]) finishing the Crucible and using it to wipe out the Reapers]].

* ''Webcomic/{{Drive}}'': The Sill were the most advanced race the galaxy has ever known and the only one to ever reach a type 2 Kardashev civilization. They ruled the galaxy for over 20,000 years undisputed, and their technology reached levels that modern societies can barely dream of. All that's left of them now are some impressive ruins and some slowly dying monks.

* In the ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'', ''We of the 21st century'' are the Precursors (or simply "The Ancients," as is the title we are remembered by), as the game is set in a far-off PostApocalyptic future where humanity has been reduced to a hunter-gatherer society comparable to the stone age. What exactly happened to us is one of the two great mysteries the game's story will be centered around (the other being why half the planet's wildlife now consists of entirely cybernetic dinosaur-like creatures.)

** There were known to be actual migrants from Atmora, known as the Atmorans, who emigrated to Tamriel throughout the 1st Era after Atmora began to experience the "Frost Fall," a gradual complete freeze that would render it uninhabitable. They definitely make up at least part of the ancestry of the Nords, and and (according to Septim propaganda) possibly to all races of Men in Tamriel.
