* ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarIII'', being a GenerationalSaga, has this built into the plot, as the story can take some curious turns depending on who Prince Rhys decides to marry, followed by his eventual son's own choice. However, one character, Princess Kara of Dahlia, can turn out to be quite different depending on whether her father Lune comes into conflict with Rhys' son.

* In the PS2 version of ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'', playing the game with Anakin shows him fighting Obi-Wan and winning, Obi-Wan whiffing his high ground slash so that Anakin can gut him. Then Palpatine shows up, congratulates Anakin, gives him his trademark red lightsaber [[spoiler:and is promptly ran through with it by Anakin, who takes over the galaxy by himself.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon'' explores this concept in its Episode RR post-game plot, in which the player [[spoiler:fights off against successful versions of ''every'' major villain from the previous games - [[KillItWithWater Archie]], [[MagmaMan Maxie]], [[OmnicidalManiac Cy]][[KnightOfCerebus rus]], [[TheManBehindTheMan Ghetsis]], [[KillEmAll Lysandre]], and [[TheDreaded Giovanni]]. In each case, it's made clear that the only reason they won is because the player character didn't exist in their timelines. The results aren't shown, but it's obvious they're not pretty.]]

*** Of course, it's revealed very soon that having no nukes isn't the end of Russia's worries. [[KatanasOfTheRisingSun There's an even bigger problem]].

* In ''Videogame/SonicForces'', [[BigBad Infinite]] and [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong Silver]] briefly duke it out in Mystic Ruin. Silver loses spectacularly, but during the battle, he accidentally causes Infinite to drop one of the Phantom Ruby prototypes. [[spoiler: It's later found by the Avatar, who ends up using it to delete the virtual sun Infinite was about to [[ColonyDrop drop on the Resistance]]. This turns the tide of the conflict, and ultimately leads to the Resistance succeeding where it failed in Silver's time.]]

* Discussed and shown in ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs''. The Regime universe was a world where Superman took it over after the Joker causes him to kill Lois and destroy Metropolis. In the main universe, the Joker did get the nuke to blow up Metropolis, but never got to use it [[spoiler:as he was dragged into the Regime universe with a number of others]].

** There were, however, a number of other differences even before that. The Regime Earth's Lex Luthor was a good man from the beginning, and their Wonder Woman much more brutal.

* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' features a scene where Marle, sent into the past, is mistaken for the missing queen Leene; they call off the search, meaning that the real queen stays missing and is presumably killed. This has the unfortunate effect of causing her present-day descendant, Marle, to cease to exist. The part is notable because later timeline changes don't suffer the same "paradox correction"; for instance, you can raid the Black Omen in one era, then travel back and raid it in an earlier era, and still keep the spoils from the previous raids (though if you raid it in one era and then try again in a '''later''' era, [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything everything will already be gone]]). Apparently they had different writers with different ideas.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', the goddess of the Ananta is summoned as the Priimal Lakshmi. It turns out that interpretations of Lakshmi differ among the Ananta tribes. The warrior Vira tribe see Lakshmi as a symbol of freedom. The jewel crafting Qalyana tribe, who summoned Lakshmi, view her as a symbol of transient beauty. Had the Qalyana shared the Vira's interpretation of Lakshmi, conflict with the Primal might have been avoided all together.
