* ''DawnOfWar 2: Retribution'': One cutscene has Gabriel Angelos narrating as a Blood Ravens show up to perform Exterminatus on [[spoiler:Typhon Primaris]] by Inquisitorial order. The very next level has your characters (having been lured there by the BigBad) [[SarcasmMode enjoying the view]] from the surface, during the bombardment.

* The short story ''The Nine Billion Names of God'' by Creator/ArthurCClarke. It ends with the main characters standing outside a monastery, watching as God turns off the universe and [[TheStarsAreGoingOut the stars go out one by one]]. Subverted in that there's not really a safe vantage point from which to watch the end of the universe.

* In the ''Film/{{Interstellar}} Text Adventure'' online game, you eventually find out that the world you're on is going to be destroyed in a matter of years. You can either pull a Mann and send out a fake "all clear" signal or accept your fate and get into a pod, asking your robot to wake you up just before the end to enjoy the show. In the latter case, you are woken up and climb a mountain a few minutes before the planet a fiery wave gets to you.

* The TropeNamer is "Santa Monica" by Music/{{Everclear}}, though, honestly, [[LyricalDissonance the other lyrics don't seem all that apocalyptic, which only makes that chorus even more baffling]].

** Those critters will be long extinct much before good ol' Sun activates its [[OneWingedAngel red giant form]]. Bacteria will be the ones that will watch (or rather its bacteria equivalent) the world die... assuming they have not gone extinct before, in the already searing hot late-days Earth, that is.
