Added DiffLines:

* FanWorks/NeverAgain revolves around a future in which World War II and the Holocaust never happened... and succeeds in NOT using HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct. How do they do this? [[spoiler: By redeeming all the Nazis, AND HITLER, in one ''heck'' of a HeelFaceTurn.]]

* ''TabletopGame/ThroughTheAges'': Emphasised by the use of real-world names for wonders and leaders. Gandhi as president over a nation of scientists kept happy by BreadAndCircuses? IsaacNewton builds the Taj Mahal and discovers computers? ElvisPresley conducts espionage, declares Holy War and builds the Kremlin? All are plausible occurrences and add significant amusement to the game.

* ''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 ''TheHatefulEight'' is part of the same universe, then the divergence is much earlier.

* Subtle example in ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}''. While the Pacific nuke tests being covert attempts to kill Godzilla falls under HistoricalInJoke, the 1999 collapse of the Janjira NPP and the subsequent quarantine of a sizable Japanese metropolitan area is a much bigger divergence.

* A minor example in ''{{Film/Ted}}''. In 1985, a child's wish to bring his teddy bear to life came true. News spread rapidly, making Ted into a celebrity. 27 years later, no one really notices the animate teddy bear anymore.

Added DiffLines:

* YouTube series "What If" by AlternateHistoryHub, hypothesizes various historical situations with a few possibilities. Keeping in mind, of course, what happens is the result of numerous factors and cautioning that their scenario is just one of many. A few examples include "What if the Black Death Never Happened," "What if Napolean Never Rose to Power?" and "What If The South Won The Civil War?"

*** The show consistently portrays Florida as being an island off the coast of Georgia rather than an attached peninsula

*** Alarmingly, an enormous crater sea -- with a Gem facility right at its center -- has replaced about half of Russia's landmass.

* ''ComicBook/LiberalityForAll'', made in 2005 and set in 2021, has Al Gore win the 2000 American presidential election instead of George Bush, which [[AuthorTract somehow]] results in a future where al-Qaeda and Saddam Hussein still rule Afghanistan and Iraq, and American conservative pundits are fugitives.
