* In the "present" (23rd century) of ''PastwatchTheRedemptionOfChristopherColumbus'', the world has already gone through an apocalypse that has reduced the population to 700,000,000 people and necessitated great efforts to replenish the earth to what it formerly was. An example of this is what spurs those on the Columbus Project to make the decision to change the past and obliterate their entire post-Columbus history and those who existed in it in favor of repairing the past and creating [[spoiler:what turns out to be]] a better future. It turns out that despite their optimism and everything they've done, there are more people than the planet can support, North America is in the midst of a famine, crop production is going down, and no matter what is done, everything's going to go to shit, another Ice Age will come, and humanity will be plunged into the Stone Ages.

* ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' starts with one of these. The star that falls upon Tristram at the beginning of the game is mentioned in the Prophecy of the End Days as a sign that the end has begun.

* This was a ''very'' popular trope in early VertigoComics. In ''Comicbook/TheSandman'', Doctor Destiny's hold over Dream's gem leads to a wave of cruelty, hallucinations, and general nightmares sweeping over the global consciousness as the fate of the Dreaming lies in the balance.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Creator/JohnHodgman's Literature/ThatIsAll is ''dedicated'' to making this trope as weird as possible. Ray Kurzweil acquiring a kayboard arm (not the kind you're thinking of), the Blood Wave and the Rise of [[EldritchAbomination The Ancient and Unspeakable Ones]] are all signs of the Apocalypse.

* In ''7th Legion'', there is a prophesy about the signs that the Chosen, those who humans had left Earth long ago, were returning to reconquer it. The first was a night without darkness (the lights from the ships filling the sky). The second is a day without light (those same ships blot out the sun with their numbers). The final sign is the rain of fire (landing craft entering the atmosphere).
