* In ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', the First Ancestral Race (FAR) dropped Black and White Eggs (Adams and Liliths) on several planets. No planet was supposed to get more than one Egg, but because we got two, we got the inter-egg wars that compose the series proper (Lilith's children vs. Adam's children). The First Ancestral Race were never mentioned in the show itself, [[AllThereInTheManual but is referred to]] in the early scripts and gets a bit more fleshed out in the ''Neon Genesis Evangelion 2'' PlayStation2 game that served as supplemental material.

** It was first recorded by Plato, and may be an allegory he dreamed up to serve his conception of a utopian society by providing it with an enemy. Another possibility is that the legend of Atlantis grew out of stories about the civilization on bronze age Crete, long before classical AncientGreece. Another candidate is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santorini Santorini,]] which was once Thera, an island city-state in the Aegean Sea, very advanced compared to its neighbors, even possessing indoor plumbing, but erased (along with the middle of the island) by a volcanic explosion about 36 centuries ago. ** Theories on the origins of Atlantis are far ranging and include everything from islands in the Mediterranean to the continents of North and South America. Proponents of the latter theories, however, are not taken seriously because no such civilisation could have existed and left zero trace or record of its existence whatever.

** To be fair, all human accomplishments were apparently built by aliens.

* The Merk in ''Nexus'' certainly qualify, as they are or were a race of extremely psychically gifted and technologically advanced alien race who left the galaxy and, apparently, their bodies, behind. One of them remained behind, however.

* The Alien Overlords in ''Race for the Galaxy''. They were apparently a very advanced race of aliens who were the dominant civilization in the Milky Way at some point in the past, but who have now vanished. They did leave behind many artifacts, including some very advanced technology. They also seem to have uplifted and genetically engineered several servitor races. Since the backstory in ''Race for the Galaxy'' is told only in the sketchiest fashion, however, very little is known about the Overlords.

* Any ancient state ended up either as this or a VestigialEmpire, except for China, which [[UsefulNotes/DynastiesFromShangToQing just kept going]], even when under the rule of the Mongols and the Manchu. The best examples would be the six "cradles of civilization" where writing, urbanization and features of modern society first developed: [[{{Mayincatec}} Mesoamerica]], the central Andes, AncientEgypt, Mesopotamia, [[SimSimSalabim the Indus River Valley]] and China.
