* ''TheCabinInTheWoods'' is set in a universe that was once ruled by the "Old Gods", a race of godlike monsters who have since retreated into a slumber, content with the sacrifices humanity offers to entertain them. Little detail is given about this mysterious past, other than being specifically refered to as the "dark times", and that as bad the horrors the main characters encountered in the movie, those days were infinitly worse.

* [[Literature/TheSilmarillion Middle-Earth]] has cycled through various dark times when Morgoth and/or Sauron were the dominant forces in the world (perhaps the most notable being when Melkor/Morgoth ruled the all of the world except for Valinor completely unchallenged- it was only the coming of the elves that inspired the Valar to act against him). The plot of TheLordOfTheRings basically consists of Sauron trying to start up ''new'' dark times.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'', [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos cosmic horrors]] ruled the Earth in the far past. The story happens because they're returning... and they don't particularly care about the ape-like creatures infesting their ancestral homeworld.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': In the backstory, ancient alien races (the Ancient Ones, the Angels...) and powerful deities fought over the galaxy long before the birth of the mankind. The [[EldritchAbomination Angels]] met by the main characters are the last survivors of their wars.

* Until around 65 million years ago the Earth was ruled by [[UsefulNotes/{{Dinosaurs}} enormous, scaly beasts]]. It's pretty unlikely that they'll ever come back, though. [[Franchise/JurassicPark Unless, of course, we tamper in God's Domain....]]
** Also, according to the RNA World hypothesis, before DNA based life appeared, the world was once dominated by things which were basically viruses, although modern viruses may not have any connection to them.
** Prior to the emergence and spread of cyanobacteria, Earth's atmosphere was anaerobic, and deadly to nearly everything alive today. Earlier still, it was so hot that the surface was molten, and ''vaporized rock'' was a component of the air.
** And, well, the nature of whatever space the universe would eventually occupy right before the Big Bang is totally unknown to us.

* The backstory of WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} is about how mankind was nearly killed by evil creatures called Grimm, whom they managed to drive back by harnessing an energy source called Dust and channeling their Auras for fight capacity. The inhabitants of that world are at least smart enough to prepare for the Grimm's inevitable return.
