Apocalyptic is from the word apocalypse, referring to the end of the world.

Apocalyptic fiction focuses on the end of civilization either through nuclear war, plague, or other global catastrophic risk.

Apocalyptic literature is a genre of religious writing centered on visions of the end of time.

Many apocalyptic stories focus on stories that are on the brink of the end of the world of the civilization. Post-apocalyptic fiction is set in a world or civilization after such a disaster. Also called 'Holocaust'
