* The ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' multiverse, which shares similarities with the ''PrettyCure'' worlds except for the whole [[{{shonen}} shounen]] [[{{mons}} mon]] series thing, has the exact same looming threat every time.

* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': This was the aim of Gendo and SEELE, but the Children managed to avert it. Invoked by Fuyutsuki.
-->Too much time had passed. The world did not end, neither with a bang nor a whimper. And Sub-Commander Fuyutsuki knew Gendo Ikari had probably failed.

* In the latter trilogy of ''Literature/TheBlackCompany'', the Company focuses on trying to stop a cult from resurrecting the goddess [[BigBad Kina]], who will swiftly get to work bringing about the Year of the Skulls.



* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'s'' universe is entering the eleventh millennium of the ongoing end of the ''Galaxy''. The only reason it's lasted this long is because most of the bringers of the end are as happy to fight each other as humanity. Chaos wants to engulf the galaxy, Orks and Necrons both want to climb to the top and kill or subjugate everything left standing, the Tyranids want to eat everything, and the Eldar fear the last war against Chaos will be starting sooner than they predicted. The End of ''a'' World happens ''all the time''. But what's the loss of one planet when there are nearly a million more out there?

** The Imperium has a policy to bring this about, on a single world, through Exterminatus. It's usually done with [[EarthShatteringKaboom cyclonic torpedoes]] or [[GreyGoo the result of a virus bombing]] (with what's left over in the latter [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill usually being set on fire]]), or sometimes other, more exotic means. Normally done when a world is considered to not be worth the manpower or resources in taking it, or when the inhabitants of an established planet, or the planet itself is considered beyond redemption. This is considered to be crossing the GodzillaThreshold in-universe, though it still happens pretty frequently. Also, this is technically not as bad as other examples, since you could (on paper) escape, and there are at least a million worlds out there; but it's still a loss typically in the millions or billions of lives.
** This is also what happens when certain other entities arrive on the world. [[BugWar Tyranids]] making landfall on a world can mean a swift, bitter war; and if they aren't pushed back, they'll eat everything down to the bedrock to get all the organic matter before moving on to the next world. A single [[ZombieApocalypse plague zombie]] getting on the surface of a world can be disastrous. Certain Necron dynasties are known for sterilizing conquered worlds. A particularly bad daemonic incursion can end with all mortal life being butchered or the world being swallowed into a [[NegativeSpaceWedgie warp storm]]. Dozens of ways, really.
** On the grander scale, the
universe is entering the eleventh millennium of the ongoing end of the ''Galaxy''.''Galaxy''. As the Imperium is considered to be the only real contender against most galactic threats, and it's been steadily failing by inches, as well as being the main force fighting most enemies ''simultaneously''.

Chaos wants to engulf the galaxy, Orks and Necrons both want to climb to the top and kill or subjugate everything left standing, the Tyranids want to eat everything, and the Eldar fear the last war against Chaos will be starting sooner than they predicted.

* The aliens in the 1980s miniseries ''Series/{{V}}'' intended to harvest the human race for use as snack food and drain all the water, and were turning the planet into a thinly disguised version of Nazi Germany to make it easier. In the end there would be nothing left but a dead desert planet. Diana puts a spin on this when the resistance is close to winning -- if she can't have it then no one will. She tries to deploy her mothership as a bomb to turn the world into an irradiated wasteland.

* 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]].]]

** Stated at the very end of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds'' that [[spoiler: Lorule, Hyrule's alternate dimension counterpart, was crumbling away after Princess Hilda's ancestors destroyed Lorule's Triforce. Death Mountain suffers from an everlasting winter, the swamp region is always flooded, constant earthquakes have torn the land apart, and the kingdom is overrun with monsters. Without the Triforce, Lorule would eventually be destroyed. Luckily, Link and Zelda use their own Trifroce to restore Lorule's Triforce.]]
