* Another unpleasant ''Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom'' timeline is ''Literature/NoW'', where UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush dies in a car accident just before he can be nominated for President. This triggers a ButterflyEffect that creates one hell of an awful world. To wit, nuclear weapons are used with reckless abandon by nations and terrorists alike, planes are frequently bombed (though not all of them go down), and after [[spoiler: Rick Santorum]] becomes President in 2005, he starts slowly turning America into a theocratic dictatorship -- he silences his critics by [[FrameUp framing them for crimes]] (such as child pornography) or [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident discreetly having them assassinated]], heavily censors the media by banning violent video games and shows with even an iota of adult situations, actively opposes gay rights as sacreligious (and later declares homosexuality to be a mental illness that he seeks to treat), and actively promotes bigotry against Muslims, going as far as to put them into internment camps supposedly to protect them from racial hate crimes, but may actually be extermination camps.

* In the Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom timeline, ''Literature/TwilightOfTheRedTsar'', Joseph Stalin survives the stroke that killed him in 1953 OTL. Though wheelchair bound and in poor health, he unleashes another brutal purge on the USSR, expanding the Doctors' Plot into a Second Holocaust that kills over a million Soviet Jews, murdering important figures including Georgy Zhukhov and Nikita Khrushchev, and ethnically cleansing the Baltic States. And to top it all off, an earlier Sino-Soviet split [[spoiler: leads to an apocalyptic war that utterly destroys Red China, kills millions with biological warfare, massacres, and famine, unleashes nuclear weapons on countless Chinese cities, including Beijing, and creates the worse refugee crisis in history, with millions of starving and sickly Chinese driven into Southeast Asia, where they face discrimination from hostile nations]].

** Britain is even worse hit by TheTroubles with many more deaths, including [[spoiler:the assassination of Queen Elizabeth]], and while it momentarily dies down it flares up even worse in the '80s due to a new "Loyalist" terrorist group launching attacks on the British mainland to punish any attempt to end the bloodshed [[spoiler:and, again, this is directly aided by Rumsfeld in order to "punish" Britain for voting in a Labour Government]].

* ''WebOriginal/GreenAntarctica'': In this AlternateHistory, the Antarctic continent doesn't become a frozen wasteland. What it does become is a DeathWorld host to a wide variety of disturbing life forms- giant rapist monekys called Gugs, ants that shoot fire, giant platypi that have evolved convergently similar to crocodilians, a kind of small mammal whose bite sends humans into comas among many others, acid-spewing predatory birds, etc. A group of prehistoric humans from Australia are swept away to this land and gradually develop their own civilization there, quite unaware of the rest of humanity. That is until Captain Cook arrives in and discovers that these people are ''not'' friendly...

* On the subject of Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom, most works by prolific member [=RVBOMally=]; he's the creator of such happy fun realities as AdAstraPerAspera and VivereMilitareEst, and the maps from [[http://rvbomally.deviantart.com/ his DeviantArt account]] are disproportionately horrible places, from ''1984''-esque worlds where totalitarian superpowers are constantly at each others' throats, to AfterTheEnd hellscapes, to outright CosmicHorrorStory worlds, to Crossover Fanfiction involving ''TableTopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''.

* The {{creepypasta}} ''The Other Network'' describes a pretty disturbing one. The United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia are all under control of a totalitarian state called the Patriot Alliance. Within this state, the only crimes that are investigated are treason and fraud, leaving all manner of depraved killers and perverts free to wander the streets. Some of them have even cultivated fan followings online- one site is dedicated to someone called the "Dockyard Butcher." Terrorist attacks are also extremely commonplace, which include a white house shooting and a thermonuclear detonation on the border between France and Spain. In addition, this world is extremely overcrowded, with cities like London ringed by decrepit shantytowns. There was also something that happened to New York City. It was normal up until the 1990's, when the city, all photos, historical records, and any other trace of its existence just...[[RetGone disappeared.]]

* ''Roleplay/TheBalladOfEdgardo'': Due to this being a board full of OccidentalOtaku during a time where anime was getting particularly dark, the world before Edgardo came in was utter hell. Every last hero was of the Antihero sort, emphasis on Anti, who would gladly thrash a man for mouthing off and kill him without a thought if he dared not beg for his life afterwards. Even the better ones among them frowned on any show of actual morality to the point of wanting to quash it, and trusted none but themselves. At the top of it all was an extremely broken, infinitely powerful EvilOverlord (in reality a guy who was basically a CreatorsPet for the mods, who let him get away with all the bullshit ever) who would slaughter a man just because he dared be good or weak. Out of character, the forum was simply full of assholes, where even the mods would crap on anything that wasn't DarkerAndEdgier.
