* 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, 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]].

* 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.

* The Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom timeline ''[[http://foralltime.alternatehistory.com/ For All Time]]'', beginning with the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt shortly after Pearl Harbor, basically takes FinaglesLaw and applies it to 20th-century history. In this world, all leaders are either corrupt, incompetent or insane, nations get [[BalkanizeMe splintered]] or thrown into civil war on a daily basis, and [[AtomicHate nuclear weapons]] get tossed around like snowballs.

** America [[spoiler:is getting dragged further and further towards a [[Oppressive States of America fully-fledged authoritarian police state]] under Rumsfeld, complete with the murder and internment of any and all critics, mass production of propaganda movies to smear the president's enemies, and all kinds of far right and Christian fundamentalist fanatics employed and positions adopted by the administration. All while its economy steadily falls apart. Rumsfeld and Cheney even privately admit they plan to remove each constitutional right save the right to bear arms (in order to keep the right wing happy)]].
** [[spoiler: By the 1990's, Rumsfeld has been impeached...only to be replaced by the Christian Values party, which transforms America into a violent theocracy lead by Douglas Coe, now known as the Christian States of America. They brand anyone who opposes them a satanist and have absolutely no reservations about using nukes. A second civil war has begun as multiple states have already broken off to form their own factions. The savagery of the CSA is bad enough that the [[EnemyMine Ku Klux Klan, the Black Panthers, and the Jewish Defense League all ''join forces'']] to fight against them.]]

* ''Literature/TheAngloAmericanNaziWar'' is set in an AlternateHistory where Hitler, in a moment of actual sanity, comes to the conclusion that North Africa is just not a feasible conquest and decides to move 250,000 troops away from fighting the British in the desert to fighting the Russians at Stalingrad, where they manage to ''win''. End result: the Soviet Union is defeated by 1943 and while the Anglo-American allies are able to win the war and bring down the Nazi regime eventually, the Germans have managed to stalemate World War II for just enough time to enact their horrific plans for Europe. To wit: Continental Europe's vast cultural history is intentionally decimated by the Nazis with numerous icons and monuments blown to bits, including [[spoiler: all of Paris, which gets completely ruined by the retreating Germans to the point where the French have to move the capital to Lyon]], the number of surviving European Jews is reduced to ''low four digit figures'', Poland is... [[TearJerker gone]], and [[spoiler:Berlin and Nuremberg have been annihilated by a massive retaliatory anthrax attack by the British which have probably left the cities uninhabitable for ''centuries'']]. Oh, and as for the victorious post-war Western Allies, they have become a political alliance of [[HeWhoFightsMonsters cynical nanny-state dictators]] who have adopted DisproportionateRetribution as the go-to policy for any major war or non-sanctioned space launch anywhere. However, some parts of the world are actually better off than our own - an unpartitioned India is a booming, first-rate power, and Brazil and Argentina are quite well off as well, Africa is much less prone to famines and civil wars due to fear of A4 intervention, and China avoided the Cultural Revolution... even though it's a political mess and a population time bomb just waiting to go off.
