** The earlier Ben10 series had this as a recurring theme (on several occasions, extending to the entire universe), but ''Omniverse'' makes it almost OnceAnEpisode and it seems like TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed despite this being the LighterAndSofter series.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' games have actually managed to avoid this trope for a long time. The closest they've come is the last two games, ignoring the fact that Mehrunes Dagon's forces don't understand the concept of invasion too well, and Dagoth Ur was in no rush to do anything (his racist religion powered by the heart of god might not have even done anything in another thousand years ...).
** Dagoth Ur was preparing to seize control of Morrowind from the Tribunal and the Empire. Although he operated on a long time-scale, he was getting his forces into position for the all-out conflict. This makes ''Morrowind'''s objective saving a small part of the world. ''Oblivion'', however, plays this trope straight, with the entire world of Nirn being threatened by the encroachment of Mehrunes Dagon's plane of Oblivion.
** Played straight in [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]. Alduin The World-Eater's purpose is to destroy Mundus, and [[PlayerCharacter the Dragonborn]] is destined to defeat him.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' usually have this present in their main quest. It may start out with something smaller scale, especially in the first few games have actually managed of the series, but by the end, there is usually some force threatening to avoid bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, if not [[ApocalypseHow destroy it entirely]].
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena Arena]]'', the EvilSorcerer Jagar Tharn has usurped the throne of the benevolent emperor Uriel Septim VII and is allowing the empire to fall apart. Naturally, you must defeat him and restore the rightful emperor to the throne.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', you initially start off investigating the haunting of the eponymous city by the ghost of a former king as a favor to the emperor. Naturally,
this trope for a long time. The closest they've come is escalates until you are retrieving the last two games, ignoring key to an ancient superweapon and must decide which of several parties to give it to. One of the fact that Mehrunes Dagon's forces don't understand MultipleEndings has you activate yourself, with cataclysmic results.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', you initially start off as an agent of
the concept of invasion too well, and Empire investigating local superstitions. Naturally, this escalates until you are stepping up to face the BigBad PhysicalGod Dagoth Ur was in no rush to do anything (his racist religion powered by Ur, who is using the power of the heart of the dead creator god might not have even done anything in another thousand years ...).
** Dagoth Ur was preparing
to seize control of Morrowind from spread disease and, eventually, will use the Tribunal and the Empire. Although he operated on power said heart to power a long time-scale, he was getting his forces into position for the all-out conflict. This makes ''Morrowind'''s objective saving a small part copy of the world. ''Oblivion'', however, superweapon mentioned above.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]''
plays this trope it completely straight, with the entire world of Nirn being threatened by the encroachment of Mehrunes Dagon's plane of Oblivion.
** Played ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' again plays it straight in [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]. Alduin The World-Eater's purpose is to destroy Mundus, and [[PlayerCharacter with return of the Dragonborn]] is destined dragon Alduin, prophesied to defeat him.bring about the end of the world. Naturally, you must stop him in order to save all of existence.
