** ''Exalted'' used to be itself a prequel to OldWorldOfDarkness, with various types of Exalts being derived from WoD splats - Lunars are obviously werewolves, for instance.
* ''{{Earthdawn}}'' is a prequel to ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'', set in the Fourth World. Shadowrun itself is set in the Sixth World. (As a point of comparison, we're currently living in the Fifth World.)

Most of the time, the prequel will prominently feature said worldshaking cataclysm as its climax; indeed, it's almost mandatory, so that viewers can see how the wondrous world of the Golden Age [[EndOfAnAge became the world of the original series]]. Normally, the Golden Age will be (at least superficially) a {{Utopia}} filled with either ScienceFiction trappings or {{Magitek}}; CrystalSpiresAndTogas are often shown. It's very probable that the setting will be a CrapsaccharineWorld under the surface, in which case it's also a SoiledCityOnAHill. PrequelInTheLostAge ''can'' overlap with JustBeforeTheEnd, but this is actually somewhat uncommon; normally, everything seems to be going smoothly right until the lights go out.

'''Warning: [[LateArrivalSpoiler Late Arrival Spoilers]] will be unmarked.'''

* Sagi's headache induced "Elsewhere" scenes in ''BatenKaitos Origins'' takes place before the War of Gods. It only becomes clear at the 3rd occurrence, where the group notices the land goes on endlessly, in contrast to the Floating Continents the series uses.

* The second {{Dragonlance}} trilogy, ''Dragonlance Legends'' featured the Cataclysm, which occurred 300 years prior to the events of most of the other Dragonlance materials.

* In the {{Dragaera}} series, the Paarfi Romances are a [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis fictional in-universe]] series detailing what the in-universe author considers the "good old days", where nobles were brave and honorable and peasants knew their place. In contrast to the modern, FirstPersonSmartass style of the Vlad series in the "present", these are written in Antiquated Linguistics (although interestingly, they are written in-universe some time after Vlad).

* Also common amongst ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fics, set before the establishment of the Hakurei Barrier. Since some characters are TimeAbyss, this is fairly easy. How the characters worn ElegantGothicLolita outfit during Heian era is never pointed out.

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'''s 2004 and 2005 sagas took place a thousand years before the current story. Allegedly, they planned to have more flashback years, but the kids buying the toys found them too confusing.

confusing.




* ''{{Exalted}}'''s ''Dreams of the First Age'' supplement is set in the eponymous First Age, a high-{{Magitek}} civilization ruled by the immensely powerful, and increasingly power-mad and deranged, elders of the Solar Deliberative. The supplement kicks off at the very moment that the Unconquered Sun turns his face from his Chosen.

* ''{{Rifts}} Chaos Earth'' is set during the Coming of the Rifts and the end of human dominion over the Earth. Ironically, due to the rarity of magic, the nonexistence of [[{{Magitek}} Techno-Wizardry]] and the fact that Chaos Earth hasn't been fighting a constant war for survival for centuries, the tech level is in many areas ''lower'' than that of the mainline Rifts Earth setting.
* The ''Arcane Age'' line of ForgottenRealms products explored the days when Netheril and Myth Drannor were at the height of their power.

* Creator/IsaacAsimov wrote the ''Galactic Empire'' novels, one of which was set within the First Galactic Empire prior to the collapse depicted in the {{Foundation}} trilogy, as a bridge between his ''Robot'' series and that trilogy. The first one, ''Pebble in the Sky'', takes place at the height of the Galactic Empire and is in a bit of an odd situation when it comes to which is a prequel and which is a sequel (it was actually Asimov's ''first'' novel, but large parts of ''Foundation'' had already been serialized). The two other ''Empire'' novels were set further back, with one taking place during the rise of the empire that will ''become'' the First Galactic Empire, and the other being set before Trantor became a galaxy-wide concern.
