Is the picture quote at all relevant to the article? The Lion King does not involve this trope. And the general look of that picture reminds more of Tokyo Jungle

... the sinkhole is kinda inexplicable. People know that song is positively ancient, right?

Not an example — humanity is not extinct.

  • The single-player X-universe games and MMORPG EVE Online both have essentially the same backstory: humans created or discovered a vast network of hyperspace gates and spread across the universe, then a mysterious catastrophe cut off all contact with Sol and the Terran Empire/Federation proper. Survivors eventually do put some of the pieces back together again, but by that point they're treated as more of a sub-species and it's implied the Terrans, if they still exist, are Sufficiently Advanced by now.
    • In the X games themselves the Terrans actually do show up (in X:BTF the player character is a Terran test pilot), and the locals aren't quite sure what to make of this. Eventually they re-establish contact, and find out the Terrans are pretty xenophobic and consider their Argon descendants, along with everyone else, a potentially hostile alien race. The only people who sorta know what's going on are a pseudo-religious order whose relationship with the Argon Federation is strained by their differing versions of history.
