* People today may not view it this way but at certain latitudes, ''winter'' used to be a once a year time of crisis and only if the right preparations were taken the community (or family) would make it through it. In the days of imported bananas year round this is of course much less of a problem. There is a reason autumn was the traditional hunting and butchering season: Every animal product that could be preserved through the winter (e.g. as bacon or sausages) and that would not be a drain on food reserves as a living animal was a plus in getting through the cold, dark days.

* A mouse genocide occurs in The Heroic Adventures of Hercules Amsterdam every seven years. Unfortunately, the mice don't live seven years, and none of them can count higher than four anyway.

A killer is on the loose. Sometimes the killer is a person, but more often it's some sort of supernatural monster. Many people... dozens sometimes, and sometimes even hundreds... of people have fallen to this fiend. No one's noticed because the killer only comes out to play every few years, or every few decades, or even ''[[ExtyYearsFromNow every few centuries]]''. Regardless of the time involved, no one has connected this long string of victims.

* The BadSanta Dutch movie "Sint" deals with the regularly scheduled attack of the ghost of a SinisterMinister (which is the origin of the Sintkerlaas / SantaClaus myth) and his [[IAmAHumanitarian flesh-eating]] [[FullFrontalAssault naked]] barbarian "elves" every 25 years on Christmas. [[spoiler: At the end of the movie, we find out that the [[PoliceAreUseless police]] and [[GovernmentConspiracy government]] are aware of these attacks and seriously think there is nothing that can be done other than keep things under wraps and pray for the best, even letting one of the heroes (a CowboyCop [[TheScrooge Scrooge]] that hated Christmas because of being a survivor of a previous attack) take [[DeceasedFallGuyGambit the posthumous fall]] for the movie's events.]]

If this happens monthly, it may be MenstrualMenace or {{Lunacy}}. ([[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Werewolves]] are especially prone to the latter.) A particularly regular CometOfDoom could also count.

count. AncientEvil is particularly fond of this trope, yet often [[ContractualGenreBlindness contracts Genre Blindness]] from being outdated.

* In ''StarControl 3'', it is revealed that the Orz are scouts for a being/race from another dimension that comes to devour all sentient life in our galaxy every time it reaches critical mass. Naturally the most intelligent guys from the last cycle left clues (then devolved themselves just below sentience).
