* ''Franchise/{{Mistborn}}'': At the end of [[Literature/MistbornTheOriginalTrilogy the original trilogy]], one character takes up the powers of both Ruin and Preservation, becoming Harmony. He uses these powers to reshape the world into a near-paradise. Several hundred years later, in ''Literature/WaxAndWayne'', this event is known as "the Final Ascension" or more formally "the Great Catacendre" ("the End of Ash"). The world before is known as "the World of Ash," or "anteverdant" (literally "before green"). The characters are often bewildered by the events that they are being swept up in, saying that kandra and gods are things of myths, not real life. Interestingly, the people actually have extremely detailed accounts of what the world was like before the Catacendre; Harmony left behind very detailed accounts. It's the sheer scale of events that makes people feel that they are more distinct than they really are.

* ''The Legend of Sigmar'' novels by Graham McNeill are the grimier, grittier version of this in the same vein as the Conan stories.

* In ''TimeBandits'', the bandits use a hole in space-time to travel to the Time of Legends, home to all sorts of mythical creatures, and wherein is imprisoned the [[MadeOfEvil Evil Genius]]. The implication in the story is that the Time of Legends is not a true historical time period, but rather a kind of [[PocketDimension pocket universe]], only reachable by time-hole.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': For thousands of years, humanity fought beside the divine Heralds to force the [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Voidbringers]] off Roshar. The Heralds gave humanity the Knights Radiant, magical knights with [[SoulCuttingBlade Shardblades]] and [[PoweredArmor Shardplate]], along with stranger supernatural powers. After a hundred [[ApocalypseHow Desolations]], the Heralds told humanity they had finally won, and left to fight the Voidbringers in the [[{{Heaven}} Tranquiline Halls]]. The story takes place four and a half thousand years after the Heralds left; Shardblades and Shardplate are priceless treasures, while the Knights Radiant have fallen and their powers forgotten. The time of the Desolations are called the Shadowdays, or more formally the Heraldic Epochs. People speak of them in hushed whispers, elevating the Heralds to near-godhood and trying to discover the secrets of the ancient {{Magitek}}. What they are unaware of is that he Heralds actually lied; they were so tired of fighting, dying and being tortured for centuries before being resurrected, [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere that they couldn't take it any more]]. Now the Voidbringers are returning, but there is no one prepared to fight them.

* The first few hundred years of a game in ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' are typically this, a time where mythical beasts and gods (the latter actually demons posing as gods) roam the land, civilization is usually in the bronze age and still expanding, and the world in general is a far more dangerous place. Fast forward some years (or kill the beasties yourself) however, and time passes into the ages of [[EndOfAnAge Legends and Heroes]], moving ahead as more of these creatures are killed. Eventually, if ''all'' mythical creatures are killed and humanity ends up being the only surviving civilized race, the world passes into the [[HereThereWereDragons age of Civilization]] entirely.

There's also an "Age of Fairy Tales" if the mythical creatures are ''almost'' wiped out except for the odd almost-literal HiddenElfVillage somewhere the other races can't get at it.

* ''Literature/TheKharkanasTrilogy'' is set millennia before the events of the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'', making it an in-universe example, and features characters and events considered mythical by the time of the main series. Here the Elder Gods are not even gods yet, and the Imass still mortal and K'rul has just made his bargain with the Eleint (dragons).
