* ''Dark Conspiracy''. The release of extradimensional evil on of Jupiter's moons leads to an invasion of modern day Earth, resulting in the creation of areas called Demongrounds.
* ''TabletopGame/WraithTheOblivion'' had six such events, called Maelstroms, ruin the Shadowlands. The first five were triggered by huge disasters or wars in the world of the living that caused huge numbers of ghosts to be thrust into the world of the dead at once. The sixth, final, and most destructive of them was quite different: a series of events triggered a [[NukeEm relic nuclear bomb]] near the mouth of Oblivion. The Sixth Great Maelstrom was so catastrophic it not only took out most of the Shadowlands, but set into motion the events that destroyed the rest of the OldWorldOfDarkness.

*In ''VideoGame/UltimaIX'', the Armageddon spell is depicted as one of these. This can more clearly be seen in one of the trailers, which uses a piece of footage that did not make it into the final game.

* When Wuya is [[spoiler: returned to physical form]] at the end of ''XiaolinShowdown'''s first season, the region she's in...suffers. Plants die. Rivers dry up. Entire mountains become barren. When she's [[spoiler: sealed away again]], the damage is undone with a WorldHealingWave.

* Music/DanielAmos: In the short story from the ''Music/VoxHumana'' liner notes, the narrator gets caught in a freezing storm cloud that spreads like a massive wave. The full extent of the wave is never shown.
-->There, rolling down upon me, over what appeared to be a snowy plain, I saw a gigantic black wave. It was miles away, but visibly devouring the earth in its approach, its crest lost in murky clouds.

* A theme of ''Discworld/TheLightFantastic'' is the Great Spells conspiring together to create a world-changing wave which begins in the representation of Unseen University in a model of the Disc, then spreads out to cover first the whole of the model Disc, the model elephants and Turtle beneath it, and then visibly surges over the entire world> apparently it's a Change Spell. What it changes is that it rescuse the Wizzard Rincewind, who has fallen over the side of the Disc, and rescues him from deep space to drop him safely into the forest of Skund in the centre of the continental mass. As an unintended side-effect, it magically changes the species of the University librarian from human to orang-utan and calls a bowl of pineapple jelly into being. Apart from this the Disc is unchanged. Although it is seemingly on the catastrophe curve for a different reason - something only Rincewind can avert.

** In ''Discworld/{{Mort}}'', a similar world-changing wave occurs in reverse as two different mutually exclusive timelines exist together. The larger, dominant, consensus timeline wraps the rogue timeline in a wave of visible energy which ''shrinks'', trapping those inside it as it contracts.
