* In ''{{Naruto}}'' Tobi's AssimilationPlot is to ''invoke'' this, [[spoiler:creating a genjutsu to cover the entire world in order to create a new reality where everyone lives, heroes succeed and the like, at the cost of free will. Unfortunately, his method of completing the plan involves the revival of the Ten-Tails, the combined form of all nine of the tailed-beasts and the only being they fear. The Sage of the Six Paths, the greatest ninja to have ever lived and the founder of ninjutsu legitimately feared that its revival would cause this, as the Ten-Tails is the progenitor of all that exists in the world and the source of all chakra, and with its lack of comprehension of the ideals of good and evil, it is essentially the personification of GodIsEvil]].

Inevitably draws the suitably heroic into a SavingTheWorld plot. See ApocalypseHow for various types of End Of the World. For when TakeOurWordForIt simply won't do, ApocalypseWow is this trope given dramatic form. When asked just ''why'' they want to destroy the world as we know it, villains usually say something from the "WhyYouShouldDestroyThePlanetEarth" list. That is, if they even have one. May be preceded by SignsOfTheEndTimes. If the plot starts ''after'' End of the World happened, see AfterTheEnd.
