[[{{God}} Eru]] objected and created a tidal wave that destroyed Númenor and everyone on it, besides turning a previously flat earth into a round one.

to:

* In ''Anime/YuGiOh'', Noah's Giant Flood card symbolizes this event. (His name is not a coincidence, given his obvious God-complex, and his entire deck (which he calls "7 Turns of Creation") the symbolizes the development and evolution of the world; he unveils his key card, Shinato's Arc, right after doing so.




to:

* In the original ''Fanfic/{{Shadowchasers}}'', the main antagonist plans to destroy the world this way, leading to a unique interpretation of the story in Genesis:
-->'''Jinx:''' This is crazy. In Genesis, after the Great Flood, God promised Noah that He would never flood the world again."
-->'''Jalal:''' True, the Almighty said that He would never again flood the world. But apparently, now a ''devil'' is trying to do it.

* Genesis 9:11 - "I establish my [[ScaryDogmaticAliens covenant]] with you: [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood;]] never again will there be a [[HordeOfAlienLocusts flood]] to destroy the earth."
** While Halo doesn't have a literal flood, it certainly has a [[ParasiteZombie metaphorical one]] (called, of course, the Flood). And it was definitely successful in wiping out the [[{{Precursors}} previous galactic civilization]].

* In Creator/AAPessimal's ''Literature/GoodOmens'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5304252/3/I-shall-endure-to-the-end I Shall Endure...,]]'' the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley are ordered by their respective Managements to assist and advise a boat-builder called Noah and his family, ensuring the Ark is built on schedule and that Noah's energy and enthusiasm do not flag. What Happens Next more-or-less follows, but embellishes, the biblical account. It also establishes that this was the same flood experienced by Deucalion, Dardanus of Arcadia and Emperor Yao, [[PhlebotinumKilledTheDinosaurs which did in the dinosaurs]] and the Minoan civilization, and destroyed Atlantis, Lemuria and Hy-Brasil.

* ''Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh'': the earliest recorded example. At one poiny, Gilgamesh comes across Utnapishtim, who had been made immortal by the gods in reward for building a giant reed boat to save his family, his village's craftsmen, and a number of baby animals from a world-destroying flood. After running aground, he even sent out a dove and raven to check if the water had receded, although the order's reversed from the biblical account--the dove found nothing, the raven found land and did not come back, so Utnapishtim and his crew disembarked.
