According to [[MsExposition Meteora]], the characters in the real world are merely alternate versions of the original characters, who still exist within their original stories. [[spoiler:Even if the characters die in the real world, the original versions will still exist, but they will have they have no memories or recollection about what happened in the real world; which means that, emotionally and psychologically, they are not the same characters we have come to know across the series.]]

* ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'' introduced an alternate version of the ''Fate'' series' iconic Saber ([[GenderFlip Arturia]] [[KingArthur Pendragon]]) as a Lancer. This version traded Excalibur for the holy spear Rhongonmyniad; this has some positive benefits (she's more mature, both [[BuxomIsBetter physically]] and mentally, because Excalibur [[NotAllowedToGrowUp suppressed her growth]]) and some negative ones (like the spear turning her into a KnightTemplar). There's even a slight variation on this within the game, as the playable version gave up Rhongonmyniad after 10 years and mellowed out while the NPC version held onto it and went full villain.
