* In the backstory of the ''TowersOfHanoi'' puzzle a legend is told of a temple with 64 golden disks; when the priests manage to relocate the tower in accordance with the rules of the puzzle, the world will cease to exist. (Even if it took a single second to make one move, this will take 2^64-1 moves, or about 585 billion years.)

* ''Literature/VillainsByNecessity'': This is the threat the protagonists are trying to stop. Assuming that the forces of Good aren't thwarted, the entire world will be "sublimated"-vaporized in a flash of light.

* The end of Chapter 4 in ''VideoGame/BravelySecond'' has the heroes arrive just too late to stop the Kaiser's plan: He escapes into the Holy Pillar bringing Agnes with him, but not before destroying the Moon, which kills all of Magnolia's allies, plunges the world into an eternal night, and since the Moon was the only line of defense against Ba'als, they invade Luxendarc, replacing all random encounters, with NPCs in every town going from panicking to being resigned to their fate. [[spoiler:Good thing the player has a ResetButton and Yew is [[BreakingTheFourthWall quick to recommend they use it]].]]

* ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'':
** One of the supplement books, ''Mirrors'', provides various possible scenarios to handle a campaign involving the end of the World, as well as the consquences it would have on all the supernatural inhabitants.
** Fan-made supplement ''TabletopGame/SirenTheDrowning'' has it as part of its premise: the titular Sirens actually are humans who were transformed by the song of a Goddess warning them about a BadFuture where an apocalypse called the Deluge happened, and they must now do everything in their power to prevent the various potential causes of the Deluge in order to make sure it won't happen.

* This is the main goal of the BigBad in the ''Chains of Promathia'' expansion in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI''. It really doesn't help that the avatar Bahamut [[spoiler:thinks that the best way to prevent this is to wipe out all sentient life on Vana'diel]].

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' had Nael van Darnus [[ColonyDrop bring down the lesser moon, Dalamud]] as a part of the Meteor Project. The moon turns out to be an ancient Allagan construct designed to seal the elder primal, Bahamut. Once the moon breaks apart, Bahamut razes all of Eorzea with his fiery and destructive powers. Bahamut could have easily caused total global destruction, but thanks to Louisox intervening, the damage was reduced to just within Eorzea itself.
