* In ''Literature/CthulhuArmageddon'', the Great Old Ones finally rose from the dead in a world implied to be full of scholar and science heroes only for the heroes to be completely defeated without the EldritchAbomination's ranks even noticing. The series is a WeirdWest set 100 years later when humanity has adapted to being ants in their footsteps.

** In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' if the protagonist decides to take the Nihilist route [[spoiler:because of the endless war between Law and Chaos, four Pale Tribe beings (white-clothed, pale-skinned people) help him destroy the entire world. With a black hole for irony]].

* The Halos in the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' video game series are weapons designed to wipe out all sentient life in the galaxy, i.e. The End Of The Galaxy As We Know It, to prevent [[TheVirus the Flood]] from spreading; naturally enough, when such an outbreak occurs in the first game, the PlayerCharacter has to stop the weapon from firing.

* There are about a thousand theories on when the world will end, prior to being destroyed by the sun. The currently (strangely enough) least popular are the UsefulNotes/{{Nostradamus}} 2012 and Mayan Long-Count Calendar prophecies. Not many have heard of the Nostradamus-prophecies, though, which might explain the lack of panic over it, and hundreds of scientists, NASA included, have debunked the Mayan Long-Count theory. It turns out that according to the Mayan calendar, the 13th Baktun ended back in the 1960's, and that the 2012-thing was an error in the calculations (it was solidly confirmed when 2012 came and went without incidents on this level, completing the transformation of this end-of-the-world scenario into SnarkBait, [[Film/TwoThousandTwelve especially for a Roland Emmerich movie that had this as it's major plot point]]); the Mayans also ended with the 13th Baktun because they could not calculate past that point, not because the world was ending). The next "big" Doomsday, is scheduled for the 2030s, when a asteroid should hit us (with a 0.000001% chance of actually doing so). Luckily, by then we'll most likely have the defense-systems to wipe out giant rocks plummeting towards the Earth.

* This is the goal of everyone in ''ArTonelico2''. [[spoiler: There are two different {{Instrumentality}} plans: Ascension halfway through the game and Sublimation at the end. You yourself almost destroy the known world when you [[NiceJobBreakingItHero screw up singing Metafalica]] early in the game, and at the end you have to destroy half of it in order to reveal the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon.]]

* In ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', the SDF-1, after a year of fighting, returns to Earth only to [[spoiler:witness the nuclear bombardment of the planet by Boddolza's main Zentradi fleet of over 4,000,000 warships (killing "most" of the population and destroying 95% of the environment)]], however, [[spoiler:with a little help from a wave motion cannon back on Earth, and Lynn Minmei, the Macross nukes Boddolza's remaining flagship]]. The remnants of humanity and the Zentradi are then shown to be co-existing on what remains of the planet, but because of some of the bored Zentradi, their alliance quickly turns to crap.
