* ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'' had at least four different parallel timelines. For instance, in ''Dark Mirror'', Takua was killed by a Toa of Iron, and in ''The Kingdom'' universe, as well as the universe briefly seen at the end of ''Brothers in Arms'', he never became a Toa at all. He is a Toa in the main universe.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', creating an alternate timeline that contradicts information known [[MindScrew in any future time that is also technically the present]] (effectively, defying a predetermined future event) spells certain doom. Luckily, only the people from the alternate timelines are doomed; the "alpha" characters will be okay.

* Naturally, some episodes of ''Series/{{Timecop}}'' have this happen. In one episode, a criminal messes up Jack's personal history, causing their roles to reverse (i.e. the criminal is now a timecop, while Jack is a known felon). In another, a neo-Nazi travels back in time to WorldWarTwo and helps them win. He's smart enough to dress a local as himself and set up events to look like he is accidentally killed by the Nazis. Satisfied, Jack returns home only to find a different timeline. It's not explored, since he immediately jumps back to fix it.

* John Titor, a person claiming to be a time traveler from 2036 on several message boards, had many predictions for the future. These included a [[DividedStatesOfAmerica second American civil war]] in 2004, followed by a swift WorldWarIII in 2015, where a nuclear exchange between Russia, America, the European Union, and China killed 3 billion people. Obviously, none of this happened, but Titor also stated that the many-worlds theory of quantum mechanics had been proven to be true and our world might not go down the exact same path as the one they came from.

* Whilst it was subtly hinted at before, the [[Film/XMen X-Men film universe]] fully entered this territory after ''[[Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast X-Men: Days of Future Past]]''. All films set after that point take place in an alternate version of Earth in which the existence of mutants became public knowledge after the late 70's, meaning there are quite a few differences.

** Timeline 1 is the main ''DBZ'' timeline from the manga and anime.
** Timeline 2 is where Future Trunks comes from, a world where Goku died to heart disease and the Earth is the playground for Androids #17 and #18.
** Timeline 3 is Cell's home timeline; it's similar to Future Trunks', except that Cell was able to kill Trunks and steal his time machine, going into the past (and Timeline 1).
** The speculative Timeline 4 is the one visited by TL3 Future Trunks. It's believed that this Trunks defeated the Androids with the remote shut-down switch rather than by training to become stronger, which would explain why Cell was able to kill him.
