* The {{Mockumentary}} ''Punishment Park'' takes place in an alternate 1970. After the Vietnam War escalates, Richard Nixon implements the McCarran Internal Security Act, which authorizes federal authorities to detain persons deemed a risk to internal security without referring to congress. Anti-war protesters, civil rights activists, feminists, communists, and conscientious objectors are arrested and given a choice: either spend their convicted full-time in a federal prison or spend three days in the titular punishment park. There, they will have to travel across 53 miles of the hot California desert in three days, without water or food, while being chased by National Guardsmen and police as part of training. If they succeed and reach the American flag at the end of the course, they'll get to go free. If they fail and get "arrested", they'll be sent to prison anyway. The story is about a joint British-West German film crew following groups of these people during their excursion

* ''Blog/ThePredepairKids,'' in addition to being an AlternateUniverse for ''VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}'', has quite a few historical deviations from our own. Hope's Peak Academy was founded back in 1937, Toranosuke Ishimaru severed as the 46th prime minister of Japan instead of Noboru Takeshita, and the Towa Group and Togami Corporation managed to save Japan from experiencing the economic downturn in the 1990's, leading to the country becoming a much more important player in world politics. However, some things remain consistent between worlds, such as Brexit and the 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections.

* 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.]]

* MiloManara's ''Borgia'' series is more or less faithful to history, but the last book goes off the rails: the King of France dies in the eruption of the Vesuvius, Savonarola is sodomized to death by the Pope on a bed of spikes, Cesar Borgia conquers cities with LeonardoDaVinci's working superweapons and flying machines, etc. Though the end sort of snaps back with the death of Cesar in Spain.

* ''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.

* 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?"
