* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' The 200th episode "Life Before His Eyes", is all about Gibbs getting to see what his life would have been like if a few key moments had changed, in what is [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane either a hallucination or divine intervention]]. In order:
** What if Kate didn't die?: [[spoiler: She and Tony get married, as do Mcgee and Abby, and Kate has a baby that they name [[DeadGuyJunior Kelly]]. '''But''' Ziva is never recruited to fill her position, resulting in her remaining with Mossad and NCIS arresting her, either because she became a terrorist like her brother, or for the illegal actions her [[KnightTemplar father]] regularly sends his agents to perform]].
** What if he had never killed the man who murdered his family?: [[spoiler: The bitterness turns him into an angry drunk who drives all his friends away, ending up miserable and alone]].
** And, [[TearJerker heartbreakingly]], [[spoiler: What if his family had never been killed to begin with]]?: [[spoiler: Gibbs remains a marine, and is eventually killed in action, leaving them to grieve and also leaving the fate of everyone he's ever saved, everyone he's ever helped, and every case he's ever closed, completely up in the air]]. The [[AnAesop moral]] of the whole thing seems to be, learn from the past but don't live there.

** Jamie pushing Bran from the tower window appropriately ends the pilot episode, as this pivotal moment sets the events of the series in motion.

* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'': In the season 5 episode "Vegas", it's implied that the single event that differentiates this alternate universe from the main one is that John Sheppard, during his tour as a helicopter pilot in Afghanistan, refused orders to retreat (because he was fraternizing with a female soldier who got trapped behind enemy lines) and instead performed a failed rescue mission that got multiple people killed. He's dishonorably discharged and is never stationed in Antarctica, which led to him being attached to the Atlantis mission in the first place, instead becoming a cop in Las Vegas.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Maester Aemon mentions that he refused his birthright to become king, so the crown passed to his younger brother, who then passed it to his son the Mad King and inspired Robert's Rebellion. How different might everything have turned out if Aemon had forsaken his vows and taken the job?

** While Rickard Karstark is not a terribly major player in the War of Five Kings, it's his killing of two Lannister boys (and Rickard's summary execution) that causes the Karstarks to abandon the Stark cause, which plays a great part in losing them the war. On top of that, the killing of the two Lannisters also provokes the Lannisters to vengeance, leading to the Red Wedding. In a sense, Rickard Karstark set the entirety of Robb's downfall in motion.
--> '''Karstark:''' Kill me and be cursed. You are no king of mine.

** A curious case with the two universe's versions of Lincoln Lee. Both are heroic, intelligent, respected, and {{Badass}} FBI agents. However, the one in main universe is a slightly nerdy BadassBookworm, while the version in the alternate universe is a slightly edgy all around cooler {{Badass}}, who doubles as FunPersonified. They at one point compare their personal histories to see if they can figure out what caused such different mannerisms/personalities, but can't find any significant differences.

By the time Daisy and Jemma break into the Framework, [[spoiler:both May and Fitz are working for a HYDRA dictatorship that arose because Katya killed hundreds of innocent teachers and children in the Cambridge, Massachussets school she was placed in - May because the Cambridge mess was her fault, and Fitz because his father is a misogynistic psychopath who thinks anyone with the slightest hint of human decency is weak and instilled him with the same values]].
