* A major theme of ''{{Manga/Uzumaki}}'' is the seemingly endless repetition of the town's cycle of reconstruction followed by [[BuffySpeak spiralization]]. Kirie's father discusses the gradual appearance of broad-scale patterns in an early chapter, but it doesn't become obvious that what's happening in the town is just another repetition of an endless pattern [[spoiler:until it's far too late]].

*** It's implied that Alduin himself disrupted the cycle, by striking before it was time and (in the first Dragon Wars) by enslaving and dominating humanity instead of just destroying the place like he's supposed to.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' has this in the form of Sheogorath. [[spoiler: By the time that you're at the end of the main questline of the Shivering Isles, you learn that Sheogorath, the Prince of Madness, is really the God of Order, Jyggalag. A curse was placed upon Jyggalag, turning him into Sheogorath. Sheogorath then turns into Jyggalag every 1,000 years, and Jyggalag tries to restore his realm back into order, but doesn't have enough time to.]] The player, however, has the chance to end this cycle forever.

* ''GashBell'': The battle to become Mamodo King occurs once every 1,000 years. As it is shown, the participants frequently have their lives ruined to some degree as a result, and a ''lot'' of innocent people get caught up in it.

* In ''DragonBallZ'', every 5,000 years, the [[SpaceDoesNotWorkThatWay Makyo Star]] comes [[ConvenientlyClosePlanet close in axis to Earth]], so if you have an [[CompleteImmortality immortal]] [[SealedEvilInACan antagonist trapped in the Dead Zone]], such as [[OverlordJr Garlic Jr.]], prepare to [[WeMeetAgain meet him again]]! [[spoiler: Actually, the trope is subverted as at the end, Gohan [[EarthShatteringKaboom blows up the star]], ending the cycle.]]

* In the ''VideoGame/PhantasyStar'' series, the Dark Force attacks the planets of the Algol system every 1,000 years. In ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarIV'', this is revealed to be because [[spoiler:an even ''worse'' entity, the Profound Darkness, is sealed behind the solar system itself, and Dark Force, the avatar of said entity, is attempting to free it]]. Not only that, [[spoiler:the destruction of Parma has weakened the seal on the Profound Darkness, so now there are ''three'' Dark Forces attempting to free it.]]

** ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' takes this to its logical conclusion; after so many eons of continuing cycles of light and dark that no one ever figured out how to break, the world itself is on the brink of death, left with only the ruins of once powerful civilizations. The return of the ancient Lords of Cinder may indicate that the cycle is about to end along with the world, but not without TheLastDance.
