* The creepy eyeless vagrant from ''BrokenSaints'' wears a sandwich board with the message "The End is Nigh" written over it. [[spoiler:He turned out to be an hologram created by the BigBad]]

* [[MiniSeries The mini series version]] of Creator/StephenKing's ''TheStand'' featured one of these, played by Kareem Abdul Jabbar of all people. He goes all around UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity screaming "Bring out your dead" in a reference to the Black Plague, even before people start dying en masse from a disease with a 99% fatality rate. He actually survives the plague, and continues his doomcrying until Randall Flagg kills him personally.

* It's worth mentioning that ''Literature/TheBible'' is ambivalent about these types, claiming that only God knows when the world will end and anyone preaching of this is either misguided or outright a false prophet.

* ''WesternAnimation/PowerpuffGirls'' - a guy is holding a sign like this early in the episode. When we get to the MonsterOfTheWeek part it reads "Told You So".
* WesternAnimation/StaticShock - A street preacher voiced by Garrett Morris holds one of these signs, and sees a fountain turning a bubbling red as a sign that thirty years of doing this has finally paid off; He is notably upset when it turns out to be a prank with fruit-flavored soda mix. He turns up to the sky and asks plaintively why God is messing with his head.

* The signs are TruthInTelevision given some street preachers are known to carry signs carrying the same or similar wording [[note]]the exact phrase "The End Is Nigh" apparently originally coming from a man who walked up and down Oxford Street in London[[/note]]; however, this may or may not necessarily indicate The End will be ''definitely'' next week, more as an inducement to repent and believe the Christian gospel by means of warning of impending judgement to come.
