* ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour''[='s=] unnamed ForeverWar between three mercilessly totalitarian and nuclear-armed [[SpaceFillingEmpire]]s, oddly enough, seems to be waged mostly with conventional weapons similar to those used in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, and conditions in London evoke that time with rationing, bombing raids, "Victory"-themed propaganda, and Russia (now Eurasia) suddenly becoming an ally instead of the enemy.

** "To simulate the battlefield use of strategic nuclear weapons, simply soak the map in lighter fluid and apply a flame."
* ''TabletopGame/CarWars'' has this in the background, too. ABM is a bit more successful here; the only actual cities hit in the U.S. were Poughkeepsie, New York and Lake Geneva, Wisconsin (home of SteveJacksonGames' competitor TSR).

* ''{{Marvel 2099}}'' didn't feature World War III, but did include the line "Minor disturbance? What's major, World War IV?", suggesting it had happened.

Some psychologists believe [[HumansAreWarriors humans]] are [[InYourNatureToDestroyYourselves naturally predisposed towards violence]]. For almost the entire twentieth century it seemed like humanity was teetering on the brink of self-destruction: both [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI World]] [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Wars]], the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, and then the threat of terrorism, nuclear proliferation, and biological warfare - and all that ''after'' WorldWarI was going to be [[TheWarToEndAllWars "the war to end all wars."]] Luckily for humanity, World War III has been in DevelopmentHell for more than half a century now - and may it stay there (indeed, it's not a sequel anyone is looking forward to (we hope)). So it's probably only natural that the next great global conflict is a popular subject in SpeculativeFiction.

*''' ''Status Quo Ante'' Peace Treaty: ''' In many Literary World War III stories, if it doesn't end in a total nuclear exchange, it ends in a rough draw, with millions dead, but no real political changes.

** Set in the same scenario is Harold Coyle's ''Literature/TeamYankee'' from 1987, about a U.S. armor company in that war - it was made into a video game, a comic book (with the script by DavidDrake) and an Origins Award-winning board game.
