* ''Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheNightmaresOfFuturesPast'' has a similar "everyone died, let's try again" premise, but with just Harry going back.


* Fanfic/ArchangelsAmazingAdventures: What happens when the crew of Archangel, along with Yzak, Dherka, Athrun, and Nicol get TrappedInAnotherWorld for a few months? Rau Le Creuset successfully gets both the Earth Alliance and ZAFT to obliterate each other, resulting in a scenario that doesn't look out of place for a VideoGame/{{Fallout}} scenario.

* ''Fanfic/TheShapeOfTheNightmareToCome'' manages to do this, incredibly, to ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', which is already a BadFuture for our entire galaxy. 10,000 years after everything's [[JustBeforeTheEnd already on the verge of collapse]], humanity's primary HopeSpot not only died but was [[CameBackWrong horribly warped]], the BigBad won for awhile, and two more forces merged and ''ate half the galaxy.'' And then the author did a [[Fanfic/TheAgeOfDusk sequel]] for ''[[UpToEleven that]]''.
* ''Fanfic/HumanCuriosity'' has this for ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia.'' Much of the plot takes place in the early 22nd Century where most of the Nations mysteriously vanished a century before.
* ''FanFic/BadFutureCrusaders'', by ''[=TonicPlotter=]'', adapted from a [[http://astringe.deviantart.com/gallery/41135018 series of images]] by an artist on Website/DeviantArt that were designed to be this trope distilled through a ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' setting -- at some point, Princess Celestia died, followed by Twilight Sparkle and Princess Luna engaging in a fight that [[DoomedHometown destroyed Ponyville]], killing or scattering its inhabitants; the other bearers of the Elements of Harmony are missing, presumed dead; Twilight, now [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen]], has turned Equestria into a totalitarian PoliceState[=/=][[TheEmpire Empire]]; and formerly sweet and kind characters have grown to be either [[FaceHeelTurn villains]], {{Anti Hero}}es, or have lost everything they care about.
* ''FanFic/ShadowsAwakening'': The Mirror of Despair traps [[spoiler: Tohru]] in a vision of one of these — the heroes managed to defeat Wong, only for [[EnemyWithin the Queen]] to take [[FallenHero control of Jade]], and use the Shadowkhan to kill the other heroes and take over the world. San Francisco is shown to be in ruins, with the humans there being emotionally broken down slaves, and it's implied it's like this everywhere.

* ''FanFic/MegaManRecut'' has "Future Shock," which is much darker than the show, with scientists essentially being lobotomized. This also extends to the future versions of Mega Man's family.
* ''FanFic/HarryPotterAndTheFutureUncertain'': Magic is now a crime against humanity in this world.

* In the ''[[FanFic/TwilightThenTwilightNowUniverse Firehooves Cycle]]'', the basic premise is that a DarkerAndEdgier take on [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony G1]] is actually the far future of [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic G4]], after a series of {{Gotterdammerung}} events.
* From FanFic/YoungJusticeDarknessFalls, Bart Allen travels through time again, only this time, he only jumps 5 years forward in time, leading to a world under the rule of Darkseid. The Earth's people are mostly enslaved, and his rule in enforced by Parademons, Suicide Jockeys, [[spoiler: the Supermartian child of Superboy and Mrs. Martian, and the evil Wally West.]] LaResistance is by necessity a band of teenagers, the Justice League was killed off a few years before, and overall, it's very similar to how Bart's original future was [[spoiler: under the Reach]].

* The Solar Empire ([[FanNickname A.K.A.]] [[FanFic/TheConversionBureau TCB!Equestria]]) in ''FanFic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum'', thanks to that MirrorUniverse's Celestia deciding to convert all humans into [[TechnicallyLivingZombie newfoals]] after promoting herself to [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen queen]], Luna is petrified, the main characters are [[spoiler: BrainwashedAndCrazy]] xenophobic fanatics, Equestria is an Orwellian nightmare that's overpopulated, polluted, and drowning under the swell of newfoal immigrants, and literally every good thing about the land is slowly and systematically being stripped away. [[ForWantOfANail The reason for all this?]] Because [[spoiler:TCB!Lyra Heartstrings decided to go on a little scuba diving trip and uncovered an ArtifactOfDoom that craving revenge against ponykind and humanity because a group of ponies and a [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTVSpecials little girl named Megan]] defeated its maker over a thousand years ago]].
* The MLP FanFic ''FanFic/HarmonyTheory'' takes place in a future where Princess Celestia and Luna are ''dead'', Equestria has been divided into two nations on the brink of war, [[TheMagicGoesAway much of the magic has left the world]] leading to the extinction of many sapient creatures and the surviving ones being severely weakened, an Omnicidal WarGod has returned to '''finish what she started''', and the world is so violent you can get a Cutie Mark in ''killing''.
* "Doctor Who" Fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10568721/1/Survival-of-a-Monster Survival of a Monster]] has an instance similar to "Pyramids of Mars" (below). The first part takes place on the Moon in 2287 and reveals that because the Doctor didn't fully defeat King Wurzin, the villain in [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10348014/1/The-Worm-from-Space The Worm from Space]], Wurzin has used the Tufgup to make an interplanetery empire and is about to attack Earth. [[spoiler:The Doctor is able to avert this by going back to just after he left Wurzin before and making sure they are dead this time.]]
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' Fanfic [[Fanfic/CrucibleMassEffect Crucible]] started when a ship named Ad Astra and the antagonists came from a version of future where everything has gone so much wrong. Jane and Garrus didn't marry due to his shotgun wedding with a racist general's daughter. When they managed to get together again, she was killed, Garrus was forced to abandon their son Gaius to Sidonis. The hybrids were hunted to be war machines or lab rats or slaves by both parents' species and the Quarian. Miranda was tortured to death by Cerberus's remains while Victus was killed in the 2nd Krogan rebellion. Gaius's family was destroyed in the worse way possible. And that was just the short version.

* In the distant future of Anime/DigimonAdventure02, the featured OriginalCharacter accidentally released Demon from his prison, which results in the entire Digidestined being KilledOffForReal. The OC decides to travel back in time to the moment he is about to release Demon only for the time machine to malfunction and ended up travelling way too far into the past. His entrance into the past thus begins the plotline of ''FanFic/Zero2ARevision''.

* ''FanFic/RobbReturns'': From the point of view of the characters, the canon events of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' are one of these, which those in the know work hard to avert. And then there's another one, viewed through dream visions had by several characters, wherein the Others succeed in [[ZombieApocalypse invading and overrunning Westeros]]; understandably, they're working hard to stop this one, too.

* ''SPD Psycho'' (which has since vanished from the 'net) is a ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' fic where Grumm (''Series/PowerRangersSPD'') manages to reactivate the Red Psycho Ranger, who hijacks a time machine and travels back to the events of "[[Recap/PowerRangersInSpaceS1E43CountdownToDestructionPart2 Countdown to Destruction]]" while pursued by Jack Landors. When Jack attempts to take Psycho Red back to his time, he unintentionally brings Jason Scott (''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''), Tommy Oliver (''Series/PowerRangersZeo'') and Andros (''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'') to the future with him, creating a timeline where Evil won because Andros wasn't there to kill Zordon. As a result, Jason, Tommy and Andros have to face the Goldar, Zedd and Zhane of this time (Zhane having chosen to side with Astronema rather than resist) while Jack goes after Psycho Red to retrieve the time-travel technology and return the past Rangers to their own time.

Most of them are fairly pleasant - and sometimes funny. Most, however, is not all. One, shows Harry locked in a brutal duel with an unidentified figure in a charred, smoke-blackened hellscape, another shows him as a ruthless assassin [[spoiler: in the style of the Red Son]] who'd just systematically murdered his way through the Hellfire Club and is lighting a fire to destroy the evidence, and the last - and by far the worst - shows a version of him [[spoiler: as the Dark Phoenix, far less human than his previous dabbling in that]], sitting on the melted throne of a destroyed Asgard, with the weapons of Asgard and the Avengers (and Carol) lying broken before him, along with what's heavily implied to be the Hulk's ''skull'', while Yggdrasil and the rest of the Nine Realms are burning in the background. And what is he doing? Laughing like a maniac. And according to WordOfGod, it's because he knows he's being observed by Harry and knows what he's feeling. Harry, unsurprisingly, freaks the hell out.
