* ''VideoGame/UltimaIV'' averts this entirely, as there is no threat to the world whatsoever. ''VideoGame/UltimaVIII'' kind of subverts it, as you wind up doing a great deal of damage to one world in order to have the opportunity to try to save another. The rest of the main ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}s'' play this trope to varying degrees of straight.

* Most of the ''{{Pokemon}}'' films. And in the ''Diamond'', ''Pearl'', and ''Platnium'' games, replace "the world" with "all existence".

Most of the time, this is the result of TheCall, or occasionally may be someone who JumpedAtTheCall and is just trying to be able to do this. Note, this doesn't always ''happen'' and it's entirely possible for [[TheBadGuyWins the bad guy to win]] and the Earth to be destroyed. Sometimes, the villain will actually help with this goal, [[EvilVersusOblivion as what's the point in taking over a pile of rubble after all]]? (Especially if it's NotMeThisTime.)

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': Stated right at the beginning of the BraggingThemeTune: "I'm your basic average girl, and I'm here to save the world"

* One of the (many) notable aspects of ''PlanescapeTorment'' was that the plot had nothing to do with saving ''anything'', be it city, world, plane etc. Rather, your main quest involved an amnesiac immortal trying to figure out who he is, who took his mortality, and eventually ''die''.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''Comicbook/WarWorld'', both cousins fight a planet-buster, star-sized killing satellite to save the whole universe.
--->'''Superman:''' It seems the only thing capable of destroying Warworld... was Warworld itself! The universe has been saved at least from this menace!

** 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.
