* The United Nations in ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' founded both [[OneWorldOrder the Unified Earth Government]] (UEG) and the UN Space Command (UNSC); the UEG absorbed its parent organization into one of its branches, but was itself eventually subsumed during the Human-Covenant War by the ''UNSC'', which now rules all of humanity in the Milky Way galaxy. After the Human-Covenant War, the UNSC officially ceded ultimate authority back into the UEG, but WordOfGod states the former has not yet actually given up any real power.

* The U.N. in ''Comicbook/THUNDERAgents'' stands for United Nations (The Higher United Nations Defense Enforcement Reserves), but it is not clear how directly associated with the UN they are. In the DCComics version, the "Higher United Nations" appears to be a distinct organisation, seperate from the regular United Nations.

** By ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', they have renamed themselves as "New U.N." as more and more species like the [[Anime/Macross7 Zolans]] and [[Anime/MacrossDelta Ragnans]] have joined them, with their space forces being called New U.N. Spacy, or just N.U.N.S.

* ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'': One of the two pre-gen human empires is the United Nations of Earth (UNE), a Fanatic Individualist and Moderately Xenophilic [[TheRepublic Indirect Democracy]]. While pre-FTL empires of the "Fragmented Nations" government type are implied to have their own version of the (pre-superpower) UN since their Ruler is known as a "Secretary".

* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': [[AfterTheEnd In the post-Third Impact world]], the UN is the only major political power left. However it's devolved into a military dictatorship led by a warlord who has got ahold of a large number of nukes.

* ''Fanfic/{{HERZ}}'': In this history, set in the year 2027, the UN is de facto THE hegemonic superpower. It's gradually developing into an OneWorldOrder as the nation-states keep losing power and influence and it has its own army, including {{Humongous Mecha}}s to deal with emergences.

* The [[AllInTheManual backstory]] to the ''[=Starfight=]'' series has UN's influence grow to such an extent that, in 2040, all members except for the [[MakeTheBearAngryAgain Soviet States of Russia]] agree to hand over all means of political control to direct UN supervision. The SSR is left out of the new UN. In response to widespread criticism of the UN oversight, the UN shuts down the Internet to "secure government interests". By 2128, after the discovery of FTLTravel, the UN creates its own SpaceNavy, which rivals the SSR fleet by a large margin. In 2169, the UN invades the SSR, with a few political leaders managing to flee to the recently-colonized planet Mezen, becoming the Soviet States of Mezen. A decade later, the UN declares a monopoly on all FTL travel except for the SpaceNavy and two {{Mega Corp}}s. A failed AlienInvasion and a massive war with the SSM later, both the UN and the SSM cease to exist after Earth and Mezen are bombed back to the Stone Age by AI-controlled warships. The civilization on Earth is eventually rebuilt into the Alliance of New Beginning.

* The UN Peacekeepers faction in ''[[SidMeiersAlphaCentauri Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri]]'', which -- like any other faction -- you can develop from a single colony into [[OneWorldOrder a world government]]. They consider themselves to be the true representatives of the UN, and their leader Pravin Lal (former NumberTwo aboard the ''Unity'') has the title Commissioner.

* This happens over the course of the ''CommandAndConquerTiberium'' series. The United Nations Global Defense Initiative was founded as a black-ops, anti-terrorist unit, but is reformed into what is essentially the UN's military in response to the Brotherhood of Nod's coalition of disaffected Third World nations. But as [[GreenRocks Tiberium]] spreads across the planet, most of the UN's member nations collapse under the strain of dealing with the catastrophic ecological damage, leaving GDI as the only organization capable of keeping order. By ''Tiberium Wars'' the United Nations has been effectively subsumed by GDI, a would-be OneWorldOrder opposed by its old enemy the Brotherhood of Nod, [[NGOSuperpower which has performed a similar stabilizing role]] in the Tiberium-racked Third World.
