* In '''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', the Targaryen family are refugees from the Doom of Valyrian and are the last remnant of the Valyrian dragonlords, the ruling class of the Valyrian Freehold. They're easily identifiable by their distinct white hair and practice [[BrotherSisterIncest incestuous marriages]] to preserve their bloodline.
* The Tedrel Mercenaries from the '''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' series are the survivors of nation of people. They became mercenaries and tried to get enough money to create a new homeland.

* In the ''{{Talislanta}}'' game, the Xambrian wizard-hunters are a Racial Remnant of a culture that was wiped out by evil sorcerers. The few survivors' descendents spend their entire lived tracking down and executing the ever-reincarnating culprits, over and over again.

* The Craftworld [[OurElvesAreBetter Eldar]] of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', the survivors of the original Eldar civilization. They fled on planetoid-sized {{Generation Ship}}s called Craftworlds before The Fall, a great calamity that gave birth to an EldritchAbomination who subsequently killed all but three of their gods, devoured the souls of the majority of the Eldar race, and created a tear in reality that consumed most of their interstellar empire. Now they drift through space in the shadow of subsequent alien empires, a borderline DyingRace trying to keep their people and culture from being extinguished forever... [[ManipulativeBastard at any cost to the other races of the galaxy]].

** The Huron also have a second remnant, a small enclave of refugees who established themselves near Quebec City in what is now the reservation of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wendake,_Quebec Wendake]], who despite its small size and heavy intermarriage with local French-Canadians is one of the most culturally dynamic First Nations groups in Canada.

* In ''Tabletop/{{Warhammer}}'', the Sky-Titans were once a glorious civilisation who lorded over a floating kingdom over the Mountains of Mourn to the east of the Old World. A war with the invading Ogres left the Sky-titans decimated and overthrown, fleeing into the world wherever they could find refuge. Now their descendants, the Giants, are formed into tribes of primitive, inbred degenerates who roam the world fighting for anyone who can provide them with food and booze, usually the Beastmen, Greenskins or the Ogres who destroyed their people.

* It's only really brought up in background materials and a couple of off-hand remarks, but humanity is itself this in ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', an unspecified but probably not large number of people having fled resource depletion and environmental collapse on EarthThatWas in GenerationShips and/or {{Sleeper Starship}}s. It's not clear if the solar system in which the action takes place is the only star to which colony ships were sent or if civilisation held on back on Earth, and without FasterThanLightTravel it's not like they can go back and take a look.

** Many Dwarves are like this; few if any speak Khazad as their native language, most speaking the language of the Men near whom they live, and taking their use-names from those cultures. J.R.R.T. said that they were somewhat analogous to the Jews of our world.
