Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A plot device, such as a weapon (usually biological, chemical or nuclear) or a natural agent (like a plague/virus), which drastically reduces the human population in size while leaving a few charismatic survivors. Sometimes Only Fatal to Adults.
In order for a Cozy Catastrophe to remain cozy and small scale, it helps if said cozy catastrophe takes place After the End. It helps to justify the existence of a nearly-deserted but intact urban wasteland that, even if civilization DID collapse in the real world for any reason other than a Depopulation Bomb, would probably still be teeming with people only a few months after the fact. Sometimes major characters have a fortunate random immunity to the widespread plague or chemical/bio-weapon. The use of a biological or chemical weapon may be due to the Nuclear Weapons Taboo.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })This is popular for several reasons, largely because it justifies other tropes:
It's more budget friendly to pull off a depopulated future with a single band of familiar survivors and a bunch of faceless enemy mooks than it is to portray a vastly overpopulated future on the other end of the Malthusian Disaster Spectrum. Alternatively, a Depopulation Bomb that doesn't wipe out some 90% of humanity may still justify a Crapsack World.
Similarly, a depopulation bomb justifies how a Scavenger World, where there's more useful stuff lying around than people who need it, may exist for any reasonable period of time.
If the Depopulation Bomb is Only Fatal to Adults, then this trope justifies Parental Abandonment (e.g. Jeremiah, The Tribe, His Dark Materials). It also justifies storylines in which children and teens have to take on the responsibilities of adults, or form extended families of their own.
Alternatively, if the Depopulation Bomb only affects one sex, then you have a case of Gender Rarity Value (and a justified Lady Land or No Woman's Land).
An underpopulated world in which the Depopulation Bomb only affects humans (or only primates, only mammals, etc...) justifies a return to hunter-gatherer or other primitive lifestyles that can only support relatively small (non industrial-level) populations, thus solving the issue of how the characters feed themselves. May be part of an anvilicious Gaia's Vengeance.
Random genetic immunity to the virus-form of the Depopulation Bomb can be a plot device in itself, as an allegory for historical and/or contemporary themes (like racism and segregation) or as the social obstacle for a pair of star-crossed lovers.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Australia, due to its relatively high industrialization, isolated geography, and population of English-speaking Caucasians, is very likely to be the one nation that survives the cataclysm mostly intact, and become a new global superpower, at least in western media. Japan's proximity to the Asian mainland makes its survival dicier, but Japanese authors have this thing about their nation's invincibility, so look for it to be the fortunate land of survivors in anime and other homegrown media.
In films in this thread, expect outside shots to have lots of Low Angle Empty World Shots, night scenes (less people around) and early morning (Sunday morning, when most people sleep in) scenes. Expect the actors to have to rerecord their dialogue to take out the busy highway sounds in the background. These are all tricks film makers use to make a world look like it's been hit by a Depopulation Bomb, and movies achieve widely varying results with them.
It may be worth noting that while the Neutron Bomb provides inspiration for many such weapons, a neutron bomb is not a straightforward "It only kills people" bomb. It is a thermonuclear weapon, so this is mostly a simplistic comparison to other bombs with more straightforward Kill 'Em All purposes. That is, if you actually care about things like scientific accuracy.
Compare the much longer-term Sterility Plague.

Digimon: The X-Virus, which Yggdrasil cooked up because it found the Digital World was getting stuffed to capacity. Initially, it seemed to work, but then it turned out Digimon started developing an antibody, meaning not as many Digimon were dying. And then the antibody turned out to act as a power boost.

In High School DXD, it's not the blissfully ignorant humans who are dealing with population problems, it's everyone else. Previously, Angels were created by God, and enough of them were led astray for the Fallen Angels to keep their numbers up; Devils reproduced sexually, their low fertility offset by long lifespans. After the Great Offscreen War, God Is Dead, and with him any new Angels, and those that are left are far too devout to ever fall, leaving both those factions considering each individual more precious than ever. Meanwhile, Devils experienced such a severe depopulation that extinction was an inevitability, and created the Evil Piece system in response in order to stabilize their population with reincarnated humans. Later in the series, Angels and Fallen Angels have both borrowed the reincarnation techniques in their own ways, just in time for the vital element of it to get stolen.

In a Sluggy Freelance story arc, humanity in an alternate dimension is almost wiped out by the "ghouls." The only people spared were those onboard one of Earth's many space stations when the ghouls appeared.
And in another Alternate Universe, Riff accidentally teleports everyone on Earth but himself to different dimensions, replacing them all with butterflies.

In the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Relaunch, the Trill homeworld is targeted by a series of artificial pulses harmless to the vast majority, but deadly to Joined Trills, who form a privileged minority. Many of the Joined are killed, with the average citizen completely unaffected.
In one of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers stories, the Miradorn homeworld almost falls victim to a depopulation bomb that was accidentally triggered from the planet's moon. It would have killed 98% of the population (all those Miradorn with psychic links to identical twins), but was halted in time to prevent a significant reduction in numbers.

In Stand Still, Stay Silent the Rash Illness killed and mutated into trolls most of the human race, leaving only few survivors who were lucky or The Immune. When the story starts, the already sparsely populated Iceland is down to about 60% of the population the country had in real life at the time of publication note Iceland's real population is growing while the story's is static, so the ratio is dropping as the comic continues. Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland, meanwhile, went from populations in the millions to numbers oscillating between 10,000 and 20,000. The level of depopulation is illustrated well on this poster (scroll to the lower half to see comparison).

The Outer Limits (1995):
In "Resurrection", humanity was wiped out due to a biological war on July 24, 1997, which was then 18 months in the future. In 2009, two androids named Martin and Alicia recreate a human named Cain from uncontaminated DNA samples.
In "Rite of Passage", humanity was wiped out centuries ago through unknown means. The Vorak discovered Earth sometime later and used their genetic expertise to recreate humanity using the samples left behind on skeletons.
In "The Human Factor", humanity is almost completely wiped out in the final phase of the war between the Free Alliance and the Coalition of Middle Eastern and Pacific States. On April 23, 2084, the Free Alliance launched an all-out attack on the Eastern Coalition in the hope of finally bringing the long war to an end. However, they underestimated the Coalition's firepower, which was equal to their own, and Earth is rendered uninhabitable.

Alex Rider: Dr Greif gives a lecture where he discusses a mass cull as a solution to overpopulation. Alex questions this, asking who decides who gets killed off, and Dr Greif laughingly tells him it's only a thought experiment. This makes Alex pretty sure a mass cull is part of Dr Greif's long-term plan.

In Neon Genesis Evangelion, Second Impact. Tidal waves and flooding wiped out the coastal regions while the surviving land was ravaged by shifts in the global climate and resulting famines. It's also been indicated that in addition to lower population and vastly reduced lifespans, the birth rate has dropped dramatically.
Depending on your definition, Third Impact, too. Fans just can't seem to agree just how depopulating the latter's effect was. Instrumentality depopulates as definitely as old-fashioned explosions, but unlike a bomb victim, those caught in it can return to life if they want... it's just that wanting to isn't easy.

Virtue's Last Reward gives us Radical-6, an epidemic virus with a 75% chance of driving the host to suicide. The pandemic broke out 40 years before the events of the novel, and coupled with a few nuclear disasters killed 6 out of 8 billion people on Earth, leaving it an After the End Scavenger World. Safe shelters, quarantined moon bases and nomadic lifestyles were all key to humanity's survival. The point of its sequel is preventing the virus outbreak in the first place.

The killing of Vigilance by Median in Soul Nomad & the World Eaters turned Haephnes into a very slow version of this trope. Births became decreasingly common and the land slowly became more and more barren as a result of there not being a psychopomp to maintain the flow of souls, and by the time the events of the game comes around the land is little more than a dustbowl inhabited by one of the last generations of sentient life. Gig, of course, greatly hastened this process by killing off most of the population and burning most of the land to a crisp.

In Homestuck, even if the four main protagonists succeed in The Game and create a new universe, the human race and most other life on Earth will be destroyed by a hail of meteors known as The Reckoning. Only the four of them would survive to carry on the race—and bear in mind these are two pairs of 13 year-old full siblings being told they'll have to repopulate the planet. The kids Take a Third Option and scratch their session, rebooting The Game into a "void session" that at least preserves the possibility of human survival, so long as they eliminate certain outside threats.

The Twilight Zone (1959):
In "Time Enough at Last", Henry Bemis may be the last survivor in the aftermath of the nuclear war.
In "The Old Man in the Cave", a nuclear war devastated Earth in 1964, killing millions of people in the process. Major French tells Mr. Goldsmith that there are approximately 500 people alive between Buffalo, New York and Atlanta, Georgia. In the ten years since the war, many people have died as a result of eating food contaminated with Strontium-90 or from the plague.
In "Probe 7, Over and Out", Colonel Cook's people are wiped out in a devastating war within less than a day. The entire coast of Cook's country was destroyed in only 12 minutes, after which they responded in kind.

Nukes in Civilization will typically remove 3/4 of the population of a city they're dropped on, and pollute the surrounding region with fallout, making population recovery extremely difficult.
Repeated nuking or nuking a sufficiently weak city will result in that city being removed from the game altogether. Unless it's a capitol city, which are indestructible.

Polish comedynote Yes, this trope in a comedy, although a rather dark one Sex Mission introduces us to a bomb which was supposed to temporarily suppress Y chromosome in humans, but instead killed all males and left some deadly radiation on the surface of Earth, forcing women to populate caves, use parthenogenesis to reproduce, utilise chemical food and so on. The male protagonists survived because they already were underground during their Human Popsicle experiment. The bomb effects turn out later to be rather blown up, if you forgive the pun, by history revisionism.

In Exalted Creation was almost reduced to formless chaos as a result of The Great Contagion, followed by the Balorian Crusade.
The Dragon Kings are an even more drastic example. Due to their perfect reincarnation (meaning that every Dragon King regains perfect memories of their previous incarnations after a few decades, tied to their basic mental development), their population was fixed at 150 million. During the Primordial War, enormous numbers were destroyed right down to the soul, reducing them to 30 million. The Wyld incursions caused by the Balorian Crusade whittled this down to a mere 4 million. This means that not only is repopulation impossible, but that many Dragon Kings wind up not reclaiming past life memories (since these will inevitably include vast numbers of people who simply aren't around anymore to a psychology which was never really designed to handle bereavement).

This is Wesker's plan in Resident Evil 5. The "Uroboros" mutagen will tear through the world's populations (ensuring "COMPLETE GLOBAL SATURATION") and devolve anyone who doesn't meet the genetic criteria Wesker has researched into a slimy mass of tangled, oozing tentacles. More able subjects will "evolve" and become Wesker's chosen race to ascend past humanity.

In one of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers stories, the Miradorn homeworld almost falls victim to a depopulation bomb that was accidentally triggered from the planet's moon. It would have killed 98% of the population (all those Miradorn with psychic links to identical twins), but was halted in time to prevent a significant reduction in numbers.

In S. M. Stirling's The Shadowspawn series, the titular species of superhuman beings, who have been secretly controlling humanity for thousands of years, have decided that the global population is growing too large to control, so needs to be curbed. The only problem for them is that they can't agree on how. The ruling elders want to use a string of EMPs to destroy all modern technology, and corral all remaining humans. A progressive movement of younger members, however, want to use a Synthetic Plague to merely kill enough to lower numbers, while they then come in with the antidote, letting them be welcomed as saviors and handed open control on a silver platter.

The X-Files: During the final episode of the miniseries revival, "My Struggle II", The Conspiracy enact their endgame by unleashing the Spartan Virus, which shuts down the immune system of anyone exposed to it who hasn't also had alien DNA inserted into their genome. The Cigarette Smoking Man tries to present this as a case of well-lntentioned extremism, stating that humanity was wiping out itself and killing the planet anyway, but this way at least humanity will have a chance to rebuild (naturally, with himself and his allies in charge).

In the penultimate story quest of Fallout 3, President Eden provides you a with a vial of Modified Forced Evolutionary Virus, which will kill all mutated creatures in the Wasteland, including most humans (e.g. those not born in vaults), when inserted into Project Purity. During Broken Steel, if you followed through with the President's orders, there will be people in the clinics dying from the virus, and you yourself die if you consume too much of the FEV-laced water.

In Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, Tiberium itself is intended as both this and a device for terraforming by the Scrin.
Ironically, they don't care about either effect. They only seed planets with Tiberium for one-time future harvesting (once all planetary mass is converted Tiberium, it won't grow anymore) They only attack humans because they're still alive; normally, Tiberium kills off all non-Tiberium-based life before the detonation of a significant mass of liquid Tiberium, which signals them to arrive. Once they do arrive, they judge that humanity needs to be exterminated anyway, as they're apparently criminally insane - GDI and Nod are still fighting each other during a freaking alien invasion, after all.
The Scrin, who themselves are so uncaring about other species as to destroy entire planets for harvesting, called humans "Warlike in the extreme".
Generals also has the GLA with a variety of bio-chemical weapons and their airburst bomb is in fact a depopulation bomb (it unleashes one of three varieties of a modified Anthrax virus, depending on your upgrades). China gains neutron weapons in ZH which only kill infantry even in vehicles.

Stargate SG-1 had two episodes ("2010" in season 4, and "2001" in season 5) about the Aschen, an alien race who conquer worlds by supposedly being nice and friendly and handing out life extending drugs...that sterilize most of the population, letting the Aschen move in and take over after nearly everyone on the target planet has died out.
It helps that the Aschen are extremely patient, willing to wait a few centuries to take over a planet, which becomes yet another farming world for them.
The Aschen can also do this in a more active way. They possess a bioweapon that can be keyed to a particular genome, which kills off most of the species. In the backstory of "2010" they used it on the Goa'uld, and in "2001" they try to use it on Earth when SG-1 figures out their modus operandi. Fortunately the SGC closes the iris in time.
The episode Past and Present implies that one of these, similar to the Star Trek TOS Miri example above, was set off. The team encounters a planet with no children or elderly suffering from amnesia after an incident known as "The Vorlix". Inverted when It turns out the planet had been using a pesticide which caused sterility (hence the lack of children), and "The Vorlik" was a deliberate test set off, by a villain from a previous episode, after she learned that this same pesticide had properties which could stop or reverse aging. The test reversed the aging of the entire planet turning the entirely elderly population into middle aged adults, but inadvertently causing amnesia in the process.

The eponymous Halos, which kill all sentient life in the galaxy; specifically, The Forerunner Saga says that they use "bursts of cross-phased supermassive neutrinos" tuned to destroy nervous systems. They do this in order to starve out the Flood, by killing both their potential hosts and any Flood form more advanced than a basic Infection Form. Before they fired the Halos, the Forerunners made sure to evacuate as many species as they could to an extragalactic safe spot; afterwards, they were resettled on their homeworlds, with each species forced to start off as hunter-gatherers again. Each individual Halo does have a limited range though, which is why there's seven of them.
One should note that this was very much a last-ditch plan; the Forerunners first tried both a conventional war and researching an actual cure, and neither of those worked.

It is possible to research and build biological weapons in Sword of the Stars. When launched against a planet, each plague missile kills millions of people. Enough of them can quickly depopulate a world with no ill effect to the environment. Another version of the plague makes the target population more willing to join your empire. However, millions still die.
Also, in the Liir backstory, they are conquered by a vicious race known to them only as the Suul'ka. When they finally rebel, the Liir use their advanced knowledge of biology to genetically engineer a virus designed to kill only the Suul'ka. The virus actually wipes out all Suul'ka in the sector and, as it was previously thought, all Suul'ka everywhere. The sequel reveals that the Suul'ka are Not Quite Dead.
Technically, the manual stated that the Liir used a "bioweapon" and that the specific vector was unknown. The sequel states that the bioweapon is known as "The Black" and is currently the leader of their military. The Suul'ka are actually, very old, very large, and very insane Liir Elders, the Black is an artificial Suul'ka who is loyal to the younger Liir.

At the end of The Hork-Bajir Chronicles, Alloran's method of "accepting defeat" by the Yeerks is to engineer a quantum virus which will annihilate the Hork-Bajir population, leaving only a small fraction of the potential number of hosts without directly harming any other organisms.
Fridge Logic questions why he couldn't have targeted it at the Yeerks, you know, the enemy he was actually supposed to be fighting thus decimating their population without harming the Hork-Bajir. In fact, Arbat tries to do exactly this much later on Earth, but the Animorphs stop him because the virus could mutate to kill humans as well.

In Xenogears, humanity gets hit with a whole series of these:
500 years before the main story, Grahf unleashed the "terminal interface weapons" of Deus, killing over 95% of the population.
Then, in the main game, the heroes' attempt to use nanomachines to remove the Limiters on the general population triggers a failsafe that causes some of them to turn into Wels. Just when the heroes begin making progress in treating some of the people who transformed, the Gazel Ministry activates the Gaetia Key, turning most of the rest of the population into Wels. The Wels are then absorbed by Deus, and either used as spare parts or converted into Seraphs, which begin slaughtering any humans who managed to survive this far. By the end of the game, over 90% of the planet's population is dead.

The Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Miri" features a duplicate Earth where a genetic engineering project got out of hand and killed off everyone over puberty. The children are still around, because the intended effect of the project was agelessness and it worked fine on anyone it didn't kill.
Not quite so fine - the kids still age about a month per century. Miri herself shows the first sign of the disease later in the episode (if the fact that she caught the Kirk bug didn't tip you off she was going into puberty).
Another TOS episode, "The Mark of Gideon", had Kirk kidnapped by a vastly overpopulated planet who wanted to use germs in his blood to drop a Depopulation Bomb on themselves. This scheme involves a large amount of Fridge Logic, when one wonders where they found the space to construct a full-scale replica of the interior of the Enterprise.

In an episode of Sliders, the eponymous characters slide into a world where a Middle-Eastern country detonated a bioweapon that specifically targets the Y-chromosome, killing most of the men in the world. This gave rise to a new Cold War, this time between US and Australia, the two countries least touched by the virus. Instead of nukes, each tries to "out-breed" the other. The surviving men are rounded up and placed in breeding centers, where they are forced to impregnate multiple women each day. Also, only the most "fit" women are allowed to take part in the breeding program. It seems artificial insemination does not exist in that world.
Professor Arturo explicitly complains about the failure to discover artificial insemination on that world, noting that he could have revolutionized things for them if they actually treated him as more than an animal only good for breeding and actually listened to him.
It's also revealed that the humans of Kromagg Prime used a weapon on their Kromagg enemies that kills any Kromagg female attempting to give birth. The goal is to eventually drive the Kromaggs to extinction, as this prevents positive population growth. The Kromaggs are trying to compensate by interbreeding with humans.

In The Maze Runner series, the Flare virus was unleashed to cull those competing for scarce resources in a world devastated by solar flares. At first, it killed its victims quickly, but it rapidly mutated and the infected started taking longer to die. Not only that, the Flare robbed them of their humanity and turned them into animalistic beings known as Cranks. However, a small percentage of the world's population is immune to the virus; WICKED was set up to study such people in the hope that finding out the reason for their immunity might lead to a cure.

In Death Note, the Kira killings. More specifically, the ones after Light started having Mikami act as his proxy. Mikami went more than a little crazy with his newfound power (which included the Shinigami Eyes)...and even criminalized such horrible things as being lazy. Between that and all the Kira-related incidents up to that point, there were likely several millions, or even billions of people killed off worldwide. When Mikami killed himself and Light's name was written down by Ryuk, and all the Kiras (and most of the Kira Cult devotees) were gone, and the world was going (more-or-less) back to normal save for a few small remnants of the Kira Cult, it's likely that many countries were facing this issue. (Not helping matters is the fact that even before Kira got started, the Death Note Universe seemed to have a male-female gender ratio that was extremely skewed towards males, which does not lend itself towards maintaining a stable population to begin with. This did not seem to change all that much after Kira...and Kira probably made it worse by killing off large numbers of reproductive-age women.)

In Troy Rising, the Horvath drop a series of viruses (and one parasite) on Earth. The parasite is designed to weed out the stupid, being incredibly easy to treat, but fatal otherwise. Four of the viruses target various defects - colorblindness, increased risk of cancer, etc. The last will kill everyone who isn't blond, thus eliminating 90% of the human population. Thankfully, we manage to stop it in time.

The Magician's Nephew prequel in the Narnia series treats a magical incantation by the white witch Jadis as this. After ruling her home planet of Charn as a cruel and capricious tyrant with a 0% Approval Rating and on the eve of defeat by her own subjects, Jadis out of pure spite uttered the deplorable word, resulting in the death of every living thing on the planet except herself.

In The Cyantian Chronicles it's stated All There in the Manual that between Akaelae and Campus Safari a super-rabies/zombie type virus wiped out over 90% of the fox population. Which is why fewer of them are villainous in the latter, their tyrannical government is gone and the sole remaining member of the royal family is less of a racist psychopath than his (adoptive) father and put a death warrant out on Exotica Genoworks for designing the virus.

In Arachnid, Japan was secretly ruled by a psychic ageless person who sought to regulate the world's population for not quite explained reasons. The atomic bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki upon losing WWII were arranged on purpose to this end. During the story, one of the antagonists attempts to start a zombie outbreak spread by sex with her as the ruler. The heroine kills her, but the zombies don't recover and the Organization of assassins gladly let them out into the city in hopes that half of Japan's population gets raped and then dies of starvation. By Blattodea, the country looks like a post-apocalyptic scenario.

The big event that the heroes of Chrono Trigger are trying to prevent is the Day of Lavos, when Lavos emerged and laid waste to the world in 1999 (that world's calendar). The human population in 2300 is about thirty people, not counting any captives in Mother Brain's factory.

In The Dark Knight Strikes Again, Lex Luthor and Brainiac placed an entire network of these in orbit around Earth that lets them hold the entire world hostage which they use to force Superman, Wonder Woman, and Captain Marvel to work for them. Near the end, Luthor plans to unleash all of them at once to reduce humanity to a "managable" population of a billion. He's foiled when Green Lantern makes them all vanish.

In Pokémon Reset Bloodlines, it's mentioned that centuries ago there was a plague equivalent to the real world's Black Death, that afflicted Kalos and the other European equivalent regions of the Pokémon world, killing about half the population. The narrative hints it had something to do with the Ultra Space.

The Apocalypse DLC to Stellaris introduced Colossi, gigantic planet-killer spaceships that can be armed with a variety of genocidal superweapons. One of these, the Neutron Sweep, annihilates the target world's entire population with a single shot from orbit, leaving its infrastructure intact (albeit damaged and in need of eventual repair project) for your colonists to take over. Needless to say that any deployment of a Colossus is considered a huge war crime by almost anyone in the galaxy even against Always Chaotic Evil empires, so don't expect your reputation to come out of it unscathed.

According to some of Touhou's compendiums, scientific advances was this trope to The Fair Folk, Youkai, gods and beings that affirmed their existence by Painting the Frost on Windows, hence causing the necessity for Gensoukyou to be founded in the first place. The most notable example that is brough up is the yamabiko, benevolent echo sprits that dwell in valleys and mountains... or dwelled in valleys and mountains... Though it's uncertain how many there are left, aside from Kyouko Kasodani, it's canon that they nearly went extinct when a scientific explanation for what causes echoes was discovered.

Digitesque: If a child encounters too many people before they grow old enough, they will become "overwhelmed," meaning they will quickly fall sick and die. This even applies in the womb, so cities are filled with adults and absolutely no children. This was part of the technophage that broke humanity.

The Ultima franchise features the recurring Armageddon spell, first given to the player character in Ultima VI, that effectively destroys all life on Britannia apart from the caster (apart from Ultima VIII and Ultima IX, where it kills the caster as well) and, if they're lucky, a few select NPCs, such as Lord British. Naturally, the games are usually Unwinnable after casting the spell, so pretty much everyone who ever played these games cast the spell once and only once to see what happens, before reverting to an earlier savegame.

In the backstory of NieR, humanity was wiped out by White Chlorination Syndrome, which was the result of Caim, Angelus and the Mother Grotesquerie entering the real world in the E Ending of Drakengard and introducing magical particles to the world. The result is a Zombie Apocalypse that wipes out almost all of humanity, the survivors being converted into Gestalts (what you know of as Shades). The "humans" we see in the game are actually Empty Shells meant only as bodies for humanity's restoration, but thanks to the effort of Nier, that plan's not going anywhere and humanity will be extinct within a generation.

The Sixth Extinction, book 10 of the Sigma Force series by James Rollins, has an extremist environmentalist geneticist engineer a universally infectious prion virus that would destroy all higher conscious brain functions of humans, turning the human species back into mindless feral animals. At the same time he accelerated evolution in other species to make them more deadly and aggressive. The end result would be the "natural" extinction of humans and a return of nature to the planet. Of course he intended to protect himself and his followers from the infection to build a new less destructive civilization in the aftermath.

Mobile Suit Gundam "Initial fighting lasted over one month, and saw both sides lose half their respective populations. People are horrified by the indescribable atrocities that have been committed in the name of independence..." This occurred as the result of a Colony Drop (which actually wiped out Sydney, Australia, while causing widespread destruction everywhere else), the poison gassing of numerous colonies, on top of the actual battles. Most of this genocide took place over the course of a week or so. It led directly to both sides signing a treaty prohibiting the use of "NBC" weapons ("Nuclear, Biological, Chemical") in warfare.

The genophage returns in Mass Effect: Andromeda, since the krogan that launched for Andromeda left before the cure may or may not have been administered in 3. Apparently, Clan Nakmor had a mutation that is (very slowly) rendering the genophage ineffective, and they've applied some kind of gene therapy during the 600 year stasis sleep to Andromeda to enhance it, as a result their birth rates have greatly multiplied (they now have a viability ratio of 1/25). If the trend continues, the Andromeda krogan could be cured of the genophage within a few thousand years.

The major conflict in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare comes about because Private Military Contractor CEO Jonathan Irons developed a special biological agent that can distinguish between his own Atlas Corporation forces and anyone else caught in its blast radius. He intends to use this to remove obstacles in his quest to undo the world's governments, which he sees as a blight and ineffective, taking out countless citizens in the process.

Jeff Carlson's Plague Year Series: An artificial nanotech virus is released. It kills any warm-blooded animal with a few hours exposure. It's only limitation is that it was designed to shut off at low air pressure - it will not operate at altitudes above 10,000 feet. The only survivors are the people who lived on or managed to flee in time to high mountain peaks, most of which are isolated from each other by lower altitude plague zones. There are two sequels, Plague War and Plague Zone.
