** In the episode "Back to the Pilot" Brian and Stewie went back in time to January 31, 1999, the date that the series began. While they are there, Brian, against Stewie's wishes, warnes his past self about 9/11, which allowed Brian to prevent the Twin Towers from falling. As a result, however, UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush never got re-elected because he was unable to use terrorist propaganda in his favor. Bush recreates the Confederacy in Texas and spreads it through eight unknown states which triggers the Second Civil War. In the future, because of the Second Civil War the world has been turned into a post-apocalyptic warzone due to nuclear war.

** If ''Film/TheHatefulEight'' and ''Film/DjangoUnchained are part of the same universe, then the divergence is much earlier as ''The Hateful Eight'' has a black man who took part in the Battle of Baton Rouge which happened months before the Union let blacks into the army and ''Django Unchained'' has the Civil War starting in 1860 instead of 1861.

* Vertigo's ''ComicBook/{{DMZ}}'' is a variant that alters recent American history, in that the reaction to 9/11 and the ensuing change in U.S. foreign policy, was a far more violent and self-destructive one and led to the USA erupting into a second civil war. The end result is a [[CrapSackWorld less than perfect union]], with the resultant factions being the so-called Free States, the United States and the titular DMZ (formerly known as Manhattan).

* ''ComicBook/MinistryOfSpace'' by Creator/WarrenEllis is an alternate history in which the UK captures all the WWII German rocket scientists before the US and USSR can. Thanks to this and the iron will of Space Ministry head John Dashwood (who funds research with stolen Nazi gold), the UK space program reaches the moon by 1960, and has colonies on Mars and the asteroid belt before the end of the 20th century.

** "The Great White Fleet" is set in America in 1902, but [[CoolAirship airship]] technology is advanced enough to make them flying fortresses used as standard by the military. Also, William McKinley is still alive and President, and Teddy Roosevelt is Secretary of the Navy.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/HalloweenUnspectacular'' uses this trope for a lot of stories:
** "Legendaries" is set in a version of World War II where the Western Allies somehow come into possession of Legendary Franchise/{{Pokemon}}. This allows them to [[CurbStompBattle crush the Nazis]], invading Berlin by 1944.
** "Come the Revolution" takes place in a version of 1940s Los Angeles where robots known as Mechans are a sizable minority of the population. Oh, and Thomas Dewey is President.
** "Lady Liberty" is set in a world based on a game of ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}}'', and features the Mongols as Britain's great enemy in Asia. Also, the Statue of Liberty in this world is in Edinburgh, and is actually [[spoiler: a [[BalefulPolymorph transformed]] [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Dani]]]].
** "The Catalyst" is centered around these, giving various different fictional characters the final choice the player has to make in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''.
** "Hanging Tree" is set in a universe where the American Civil War wasn't fought over slavery, so it's still an active thing in the present.
** "The Great White Fleet" is set in America in 1902, but [[CoolAirship airship]] technology is advanced enough to make them flying fortresses used as standard by the military. Also, William McKinley is still alive and President, and Teddy Roosevelt is Secretary of the Navy.
** "The Trans-European Express" is set in a universe where the Bonaparte dynasty, the Kaiser, and the Tsar are all still in power. And transhumanism is a common, if repressed, social group.

* In the original fiction[[https://www.fictionpress.com/s/3206139]] version of ''WebOriginal/KeitAi'', the girl's strange area code isn't the only thing that's different compared to the boy's universe. In the boy's timeline, the [[JapanTakesOverTheWorld Lost Decade of Japan]] never happened, the Creator/{{Nintendo}} Ultra CD exists, the {{Sony}} {{PlayStation}} and the UsefulNotes/VirtualBoy don't, and the Wrestling/{{WWE}} is still the [[Wrestling/AttitudeEra WWF]].

* ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', and according to some fans by extension the entire universe of Creator/QuentinTarantino movies, [[spoiler: takes places in an alternate WWII era in which Hitler and his three biggest men. Goering, Goebbels and Borrmann are killed by the Basterds in June 1944.]] May have already been alternate history because Goebbels is referred to as Hitler's NumberTwo and his real right hand Himmler is never mentioned. If ''Film/TheHatefulEight'' is part of the same universe, then the divergence is much earlier.
