* In ''ComicBook/TheLegendOfWonderWoman2016'' Themyscira is a movable pocket dimension to which all the magic tied to Greek mythology has retreated and which the gods have lied to the Amazons is the only place left with human life as well after the attack of the [[OurTitansAreDifferent Titan]] right before the Amazons were cut off from the rest of humanity by the gods moving the island.


* In the [[Creator/TheBBC BBC]] Radio science fiction series ''Earthsearch II'' the crew of a starship abandon it, and its evil computers, to colonise an Earthlike planet [[spoiler:which turns out to be Earth]]. In an attempt to get the crew back the computers use its terraforming devices to melt the polar icecaps. The crew have to use their large shuttle (which is airtight so it can fly in outer space) as a floating ark to save some of the local flora and breeding pairs of the fauna.

* ''{{VideoGame/Freelancer}}'': With [[{{VideoGame/Starlancer}} the Sol System embroiled in a war with no end in sight]], TheAlliance decides to construct a fleet of five [[SleeperStarship cryoships]] and launch them to a far-away sector of space, in the hopes that at least some of humanity can escape to build a new life free from the ForeverWar. They break through the Coalition blockade and, 800 years later, they've made an excellent go of things [[spoiler: which is lucky, according to material cut from the game, because shortly after the sleeper ships jumped to FTL a [[AbusivePrecursors Nomad ship]] arrives and [[DoomsdayDevice destroys the Sun]], annihilating the Solar system and leaving the Sirius Sector the final bastion of humanity.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/ThorRagnarok'', the surviving Asgardians escape the complete destruction of their homeworld on a single spaceship, the Statesman. In the following film, ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' [[GreaterScopeVillain Thanos]] catches up with them [[spoiler:and kills half of those onboard while letting the rest flee. He then blows the ship to pieces with the Infinity Stones]].

Added DiffLines:

** The human [[MileLongShip dreadnought]] ''Infinity'', largest and most advanced starship humanity ever constructed, was originally conceived as an ark that would carry the last remnants of humanity in the event that the war against the Covenant was lost and Earth was burned by the invaders. After the Human-Covenant War instead ended in humanity's favor, the ''Infinity'' was repurposed as a hybrid science-exploration vessel and ([[TheBattlestar very powerful]]) warship.

Added DiffLines:

* The goal of the [[spoiler: Zero Dawn project]] in Horizon: Zero Dawn. [[spoiler: With the end of humanity imminent, Dr. Elizabeth Sobek gathered the best scientists and historians around her to construct Gaia, an immense artificial intelligence that could terraform and repopulate the earth AfterTheEnd. Unlike most Arcs, Gaia was meant to not only outlive the apocalypse, but halt it, and start anew. For this purpose, she was given sub functions that could take on one challenge each; Apollo, Aether, Hades, Hephaestus, Artemis, Poseidon, Eleuthia, Demeter and Minerva. Apollo fit the role of Arc best, as it was the AI responsible for the combined repository of human knowledge. Unfortunately, Ted Faro destroyed it, convinced that Eleuthia's new humans would be better without the history.]]

*** Halfway through the game, it's possible to discover that [[spoiler:the kett themselves use Ark ships to get around the vast distances of Andromeda, or at least the parts they don't control. Ryder and squadmate Liam are unnerved by the revelation.]]


* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' has the titular breakaway state as the last preserve of traditional Judeo-Christian Western Civilization, or so they like to think. How much this is a good thing is [[ValuesDissonance debatable.]]


* ''Boner's Ark'', a gag-a-day strip about Captain Boner and the various animals on his ark. (Noah had it easy - Boner's ark was on the sea for 32 years, only reaching dry land in the final strip.)

* ''Fanfic/EarthsAlienHistory'': As part of the buildup towards the [[Franchise/MassEffect Reaper]] invasion, the various galactic powers send fleets of {{Colony Ship}}s to the Andromeda Galaxy in order to ensure the continuity of their respective species and cultures in case the Reapers should win.

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', the ''Nexus'' and five other {{Sleeper Starship}}s are designed to get 100,000 colonists to the Andromeda Galaxy in a trip that lasts [[TimeSkip 700 years]]. [[spoiler:It later turns out that the mysterious benefactor's goal is to create a ButWhatAboutTheAstronauts situation, in case of the Reaper invasion, which does indeed happen mere months after the Arks' departure]]. Besides the ''Nexus'', the first wave of the Arks is species-specific to make it easier for life support: ''Hyperion'' (human), ''Leusinia'' (asari), ''Natanus'' (turian), and ''Paarchero'' (salarian). There's also a clan of krogan aboard the ''Nexus'', who are largely responsible for the actual construction of the ships. The only second wave Ark, ''Keelah Si'yah'', is largely quarian, but also has room for drell, hanar, elcor and volus settlers. The reason the ''Keelah Si'yah'' is part of the second wave is because the diversity of its passengers requires additional modifications to life support.

** The ''BeastWars'' equivalent was the Maximal ship ''Axalon'', which carried a number of Maximal protoforms in stasis, with the intent of having them adapt to the new worlds Optimus Primal's crew would explore. [[spoiler: The Ark would play a significant role in the series as well]].
