* The Final Day from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask''.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' series had this with the invasion of the Burning Legion, though they've tried and failed three times already. Rumor has it, though, that they're at it again.
** In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the climaxes of both ''Wrath of the Lich King'' and ''Cataclysm'' in the Icecrown Citadel and Dragon Soul raids respectively. It isn't so much that the villains are planning anything specific at that particular time, but with so many of the allied forces on the line, they'll be home free if the heroes fail.
* The ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series has one of these at the end of each game: in the first game, it is the defense of the Citadel and in the second, quite predictably, the Suicide Mission (see the opening quote). The entire third game is more or less an extended one of these, and the assault on Reaper-held Earth serves as an internal example within that.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'' the [[EldritchAbomination Septentriones]] are prophesied to descend on Earth, one at a time, for a week, while literally [[spoiler: [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt deleting the whole world]]]], after which [[spoiler: [[MakeAWish Polaris will grant the wish of the survivors in the method to reconstruct the world.]]]] Alternatively, you may either decide to [[spoiler: [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu defeat Polaris yourself]]]] or [[spoiler: [[DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu assist Alcor to ascend the heavenly throne.]]]]

* The two-parter Second Season finale of ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' is actually titled "Day of Reckoning." It involves the iconic Franchise/{{X-Men}} figure of a Sentinel being let loose in the city and attacking all mutants and them having to defend themselves, leading to their existence being revealed on national television.

* The battle in the Literature/GauntsGhosts novel ''Sabbat Martyr'' is a DoubleSubversion. The stage is clearly set, we are told, for a dramatic, winner-take-all battle between [[ChurchMilitant Imperial Crusade forces]] and [[TheLegionsOfHell the hosts of Chaos]] at the fortress-world of Morlond, and the eponymous long-dead Imperial Saint has returned [[HopeBringer to spur the Imperials on to final victory]]. But instead of going to Morlond, Sabbat takes a detour to an obscure, worthless planet on the Crusade's second front called Herodor, and neither Gaunt nor anyone else can explain why. A massive Chaos army, led by [[TheDragon Magister Enok Innokenti]], attacks Herodor, and only then does Sabbat explain her plan: [[BatmanGambit she deliberately lured Innokenti to Herodor]], using herself as bait, to prevent him from attacking the Crusade's vulnerable flank, and the prophesied victory is an Imperial counter-attack that slays Innokenti and throws his army into rout.

There are tons of dark prophecies of doomsdays and master plans that take a long time to put into action. TheDayOfReckoning is the day that all the prophecies speak of... the day that the EvilOverlord wins, goodness and mercy are overthrown, and a new Dark Age arises on Earth...

* The new ''Series/DoctorWho'' series had a DayOfReckoning at the end of every season. The Doctor refers to them as "Volcano Days". Of particular note are the episodes "The Sound of Drums"/"The Last of the Time Lords", "The Stolen Earth"/"Journey's End", and "The End of Time".

And nope, this trope has nothing to do with ''Film/UniversalSoldier: Day of Reckoning'' despite its title.

* {{Dollhouse}} is notable in that it's day of reckoning goes ahead despite ([[NiceJobBreakingItHero or possibly because of]]) the heroes intervention. Other than that, it plays this trope to a T.
