* ''[[VideoGame/{{Lisa}} LISA]]'' is an interesting case: at some point in history, an event simply known as The Great White Flash occurred, and every woman in the world disappeared. With no women left, the remaining men pretty much brought the world to a state of apocalypse themselves after realizing the human race was doomed to extinction.

* The EuropeanDarkAges, at least according to Renaissance historians; in fact tropes commonly associated with punk culture, such as "Gothic" and "vandalism" were in fact derived from the names of the major Germanic barbarian tribes who sacked Rome after its collapse.

* In the later-set portions of the ''ComicBook/{{Grendel}}'' series, much of the world becomes Apunkcalyptic after WorldWarIII and remains that way in later centuries. The "punk" level varies, but the Grendel gangs in #22 are entirely Apunkalyptic and Susan Veraghen's dress-sense is heavily punk-influenced.

* Both [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in practice: modern society despite the appearance of endless freedoms depends on law and order to survive. Money needs a central bank to issue it, older forms of money based on precious metal need a convention between people to use them, industry requires a complex system of relationships between those who mine the raw materials, transport them, work them, deliver the finished goods and sell them. The fact Roman Law is the basis of many modern law systems is not coincidental, 2000 years ago they still needed all these to make a state and a society. Punks, bastards, bandits and scoundrels have the precious skills and training needed to survive in a ScavengerWorld since it has been their province even before the fall.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series has played with this over the years. Since the very first game, people have been banding together to form peaceful back-to-basics tribes as well as towns, companies, governments and charities. However, for every New California Republic or Followers of the Apocalypse, there are hundreds of bands of raiders, slavers, ruthless mercenaries, sadists, drug makers and the like. The games often feature a struggle between attempts to civilise the Wastes and conflicting desires to live a hedonistic life of base pleasures.

* Each bandit tribe in ''[[{{VideoGame/Rage}} RAGE]]'' comes in its own distinct, punky flavor: [[ImAHumanitarian cannibals]], [[TheAlcoholic drunken]] [[BritishAccent Brits]], gadgeteering FacelessGoons, [[PyroManiac Pyro Maniacs]] and gibbering [[WildMan Wild Men]], to name a few.
* The ''TwistedMetal'' series as of ''Black'' and the ''2012 reboot''. While the world hasn't suffered any kind of great cataclysm and normal society still marches on, the characters and vehicles have a definite Apunkalypse style about them.

* ''Film/MadMax2TheRoadWarrior''), ''Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome'', and ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' all feature examples of post-Apunkalyptic tribes of ne'er-do-wells wearing scavenged PostApunkalypticArmor and clothing encountered in the wastelands of the apocalyptic world they inhabit. The films are pretty much the {{Trope Codifier}}s for the look and setting. [[Film/MadMax The first film]], despite common misconceptions, takes place JustBeforeTheEnd, with civilisation just barely still existing and the villains simply being an outlaw biker gang.
