The 2012 universe is Roland Emmerich-created fictional universe where 2012 takes place. It is part of the Roland Emmerich-created Multiverse under the Ultraverse's Multiverse. Across the universe, the planets in the Solar System aligned themselves, which caused a cataclysmic event to occur on Earth, which eventually caused the planet to come to an end after its crust became unstable due to its inner core being heated up by a massive solar flare.
When the apocalypse ended, the time around the universe was reset to year one, with Earth having been flooded but most of its continents were risen and the universe started over again.
- Unlike the real-life Earth, which is where we live, was an apocalyptic humanoid parallel universe which co-exists with the equivalent of imagination, including the original and different scores.
