For questions dealing with events during an apocalypse scenario. Do not use for post-apocalyptic settings.

An apocalypse is an event that either completely destroys a society or an entire civilization, or reduces it to a state where it is almost unrecognizable. Questions using this tag generally refer to the event causing the apocalypse or its direct consequences, although occasionally events taking place a significant time after the apocalypse may be relevant. See also the tag for a more specific version, and the tag for related, smaller-scale events.

Consider also the tag if a natural disaster caused the apocalypse.

Do not use this tag for events taking place after an apocalypse. Instead, use the tag.
