** Some [=SCPs=] and tales indicate the world has ''already ended several times''. The Foundation simply has enough material to rebuild each time, wiping memories of the first generation clones and adjusted history as needed to account for changes.

** In ''VideoGame/WingCommander III'', one of the missions is to shoot down missiles carrying biowarfare warheads that would render a planet uninhabitable by humans for centuries. Also the fate of Earth in the losing scenarios of the game, though just hinted at with a ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}''-esque scene of a [[CatFolk Kilrathi]] boot crushing a human skull. From the same game there's also the [[EarthShatteringKaboom more literal world-enders]] of the ''Behemoth'' and the Temblor Bomb.

* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': After the Third Impact Shinji and Asuka are the only people left on Earth: Humanity has been wiped out, human cities are in ruins, the world has became a wasteland and wildlife is getting out of control.
-->'''Shinji:''' It wasn't a threat! You will die! Everyone will die! You're right; I've seen it! I've seen the end of the world! Just because of that selfish plan of yours!

* Fitting its bleak overall tone, ''Anime/{{Texhnolyze}}'' ends with Ichise as the only sane person in the dying Lux who hasn't been turned into a cyber-tree. Oh, the people on the surface are still alive, but lacking any will or initiative they are already counted as living dead.

Oh, the people on the surface are still alive, but lacking any will or initiative they are already counted as living dead. The Shapes, too. One by one, they take root and go into hibernation, also alive in only the most tenuous sense.

* In ''VideoGame/UncommonTime'', if the World Tuning isn't successfully performed by the end of the year, the world will experience global cooling and enter an ice age. This ends up happening in one of the bad endings, where [[spoiler:Alto decides the world doesn't deserve to be saved and allows the eternal winter to spread.]]

* At the end of Music/{{Gloryhammer}}'s second album ''Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards'', which is set in a dystopian future similar to TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}, Hootsman detonates the Neutron Star powering his heart in order to stop Zargothgrax's ritual, taking the Earth with him. Weakened and defeated but not dead, Zargothrax throws himself into the cosmic rift that now stands where Earth once was, and Angus McFife XIII follows in pursuit.

* In ''[[FanFic/IcedFairysANewWorld A New World]]'', an extremist [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Lunarian]] faction executes a virtual coup d'etat by killing the Watatsuki sisters and refusing to leave the True Moon even in the face of the human advance in the surface. Then they use their super-advanced technology to hack into Earth's arsenals and trigger a massive apocalypse by faking huge amounts of telemetry, and when that's not enough, outright seizing control the planet's nuclear arsenals and liberally dispensing nukes. The result is a bloody collapse of Earth's infrastructure, killing billions, to save a force of less than two hundred Lunarians. And to cap it off, the remaining Lunarians descend en masse to smash Gensokyo.
