* In Frederic Brown's story "Letter to a Phoenix", the entire plot is a man telling about how humanity repeatedly destroys its own civilization and has to start anew every 30,000 years or so - therefore, while all other races reach their peaks and after that must decay and die, humanity can survive forever - thus making it the eponymous Phoenix.

* In ''TheMoteInGodsEye'', [[spoiler: The Moties' biology means they must have children [[ExplosiveBreeder frequently]] [[MateOrDie or die]], this trapped them in a never ending cycle where overpopulation inevitably resulted in a world destroying war blasting them back to the stone age]]

* Politics in ''{{Dragaera}}'' are dominated by the Cycle, a predictable sequence by which each of seventeen Dragaeran Houses takes a turn governing the Empire. Each [[PlanetOfHats House's]] members have strengths that allow it to supplant the previous one, and weaknesses which will eventually allow its successor to claim the Imperial throne in turn.

* ''MemorySorrowAndThorn'': The [[CometOfDoom Conqueror Star]] is a long-period comet (at least 500 years, although it seems to vary) whose coming universally heralds the end of an empire. The story opens at the beginning of a unique cycle in which the comet will appear in three consecutive years. This is, of course, the time that the SealedEvilInACan [[BigBad Storm King]] chooses to make his return.

* In ''[[Series/BabylonFive Babylon 5]]'', the Shadows launch a destructive war every thousand years, which the Vorlons help to put down. In the series, the protagonists object to this arrangement, and try to put a stop to it.

* Videogame/BrokenAge: Every 14 years, a [[EldritchAbomination Grand Mog]] visits several towns, eating the maidens that are sacrificed to them. [[ConditionedToAcceptHorror And the maidens consider being eaten to be an honor]]. This has been going on for at least 800 years.
* A non-malicious example in Videogame/DeadlyRoomsOfDeath, every 10,000 years [[spoiler:the farrow child turns in her sleep, causing gravity to completely invert. There's nothing anyone can do about it, except cause it to happen early, so anyone who knows about it has to survive by living underground.]]

* 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]].
