* ''Literature/TheMirage'', by MattRuff, features a version of the War on Terror where the roles of the Arabs and USA are reversed, so there are plenty of these. Perhaps the most entertaining is that UsefulNotes/SaddamHussein, a gangster, also published several successful romance novels after ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zabibah_and_the_King Zabibah and the King]]'' (which here has a completely different plot).

Added DiffLines:
* In the short story "The Best and the Rest of Creator/JamesJoyce" by Ian [=McDonald=], the liner notes for the eponymous wax cylinder invites the listener to imagine a world where Joyce isn't a ''sarif'' music star or, even weirder, where the British Isles lie off the coast of France rather than North Africa.

Added DiffLines:
* In spite of the world being dominated by the Nazis in ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'', the 60s still sees the rise of a [[Music/TheBeatles particular 4-man band from occupied Britain]], even if they're forced to sing in German by the regime. Their name? "Die Käfer". Go ahead and look up what that translates to.

* In the Literature/WhateleyUniverse, The Necromancer once mused on his past, thinking about how Adolf Hitler appreciated all the macabre things he did for the Third Reich (including working on a zombie army). It's part of the WhateleyUniverse that during the Second World War there was a superhero war going on behind the scenes, as well as some sort of magical war with Thule Gemeinschaft facing off against a number of white wizards.

Space 1889
to:
* Averted or very special variant: ''TabletopGame/{{Space 1889}}'' is an alternate history game but surprisingly this trope is completely absent, unless you count Otto Strabisnäs. He is a nutcase who doesn't believe in the ether theory and instead has developed his own wave-particle duality theory in the adventure Canal Priests of Mars. Since Otto Strabisnäs is ahistorical but his theory is the correct on in our world, this is more like allo-science allusion. The reason for the absence of allo-historical allusion in what is obviously a piece of alternate history could be that this is alternate history very close to real history.

* One storyline from the ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' featured a throwaway bit wherein Freddy Mercury made a series of "Don't Be Ashamed of AIDS/There is a Cure" Public Service Announcements in which the singer confesses that "I had AIDS. I found help. You can too."
