* ''Series/SevenDays'' is about the agent the NSA sends back in time to avert all the catastrophes that would befall us every week without his intervention - things like a weapons test wiping out all life on Earth, or [[UsefulNotes/{{Taiwan}} China and Taiwan]] getting into a war, or the President's nuclear launch computer falling into the hands of an irate ape. This raises the question of how the world survived before the Backstep project went online.

This raises the question of how the world survived before the Backstep project went online. The series actually ''starts'' with a mere 'terrorist attacks kills the President, the Vice-President and the Secretary of State' (damaging to the US and history-altering, but as it was not causing international tensions when the backstep is made, far from world-threatening). Then the second episode has the release of a virus killing about 98% of humanity, setting the stage for about two-thirds of the episodes (even discounting the ones where the danger to the world comes from the Backstep project itself).

** Cade Skywalker lampshaded this during his own series, along with a bit of a rant on how the Galaxy never treats those who save the galaxy, i.e the Jedi, well despite their many heroic deeds.

* This also applies to PR's parent show, ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', although it's only really treated as a single world during teamups and milestone celebrations.

* Most ''{{Franchise/Kirby}}'' games start off with some EldritchAbomination or otherwise powerful opponent taking over Pop Star (or threatening to do so). If it doesn't, you can safely expect it to happen later, probably from Kirby [[NiceJobBreakingItHero accidentally unleashing it]]. So far, these enemies include an [[VideoGame/KirbysAdventure evil wizard]], a [[VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand2 body-possessing being of pure darkness]] ([[VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3 again]], [[VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards again]] and [[VideoGame/KirbySqueakSquad yet again]]), a [[VideoGame/KirbySuperStar morally ambiguous knight]] with an army and a battleship, [[spoiler:a manipulative jester]] [[note]]From ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar''[[/note]], a [[VideoGame/KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror mind possessor]], an [[VideoGame/KirbyCanvasCurse evil sorceress painter]], a [[VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn weird guy made out of yarn]], [[VideoGame/KirbyMassAttack the "god of death"]] itself, [[spoiler:a manipulative alien]] [[note]]From ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand''[[/note]], an [[VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe insect guy]] kidnapping the King of Dream Land [[spoiler:under command of an evil queen wasp]], a [[VideoGame/KirbyAndTheRainbowCurse pair of floating hands]] [[spoiler:controlled by ''another'' possessing force of darkness]], and a [[VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot giant spaceship]] sending down robot invaders. The only main series game that doesn't fall under this pattern is ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand'', but even that game's plot puts Dream Land at risk because all its food has been stolen.

** Nearly every second story set during the Clone Wars features The New And Improved Super Duper Completely Guaranteed Separatist Plan To Crush The Republic Forever, which is impressive considering that the war lasted for a mere three years. And again, ''Literature/{{Shatterpoint}}'', about a minor civil war on a single planet (and [[Creator/SamuelLJackson Mace Windu]] being badass), manages to be one of the best pieces from that time period.
