** Expanded universe material introduces the concept of "Quantum Timelocks," events which must happen across all timelines, to allow them to remain uniform. This prevents the idea of "infinite realities from infinite choices" from clogging up the multiverse, by using the "core timeline", the one with the highest chance of survival, as a template for all others. While alternate timelines can be divergent in key ways (for example, if King Arthur were a woman instead of a man), they cannot be ''too'' divergent lest the Quantum Timelocks be disobeyed (for example, the fall of Camelot cannot be prevented). If a timeline becomes too divergent, then its odds of survival plummet and it will very likely become a dead world; said dead timeline is designated a "Lostbelt," and deleted from the multiverse to conserve energy.

** There's no official word on which of these timelines ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' takes place in, with clues for each one. Some say that it's the result of all three timelines somehow merging back into one. Others say that it takes place so far in the future that [[InSpiteOfANail it no longer matters which timeline it is]], making that game a SoftReboot of sorts.

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12086351/1/Kanashī-Wütend-Desolato Kanashī, Wütend, Desolato]]'' is basically a What If? for ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886910/1/Gankona-Unnachgiebig-Unità Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità]]'': [[spoiler:instead of supporting [[{{Polyamory}} Germany's, Italy's, and Japan's relationship]], what if most of the countries scorned and tormented them upon finding out? Things ''do not'' [[DrivenToSuicide turn out well]].]]

* ''VideoGame/TheHalloweenHack'' takes place after Earthbound. This time, the Chosen Four didn't return since they were sent to a timeline created when Giygas was killed in the past. Andonuts went mad with grief and became a serial killer because he thought he killed them.

* When ''Series/{{Dallas}}'' retconned a whole season that had been unpopular with fans as AllJustADream, the producers of the SpinOff ''KnotsLanding'' didn't want to retcon plots that had been influenced by events in that season, causing the show to split off as an Alternate Timeline.

* In Fanfic/TheSagesDisciple, this appears to be the case for events of the mundane world, as it appears the presence of the supernatural has affected the timeline. Russia remained an absolute monarchy due to Tsar Alexander III surviving to influence the events leading up to World War I, the Yggdmillennia family prevented the outbreak of the Second Balkan War, the Titanic managed to reach New York City before sinking due to the intervention of an unnamed magus, Operation Valkyrie succeeded in 1944, etc. Crow spends much of his free time researching other such changes and trying to figure out why its so different from the world he knew.
