** Season Three begins right on the heels of [[spoiler: Barry going back in time to prevent his mother's murder.]] The result is the series' answer to Flashpoint: Barry lives a normal life with his parents, with Wally West as the Flash with the Rival serving as his speedster nemesis. However, Barry's old adopted father is now a washed-up drunk, his old tech support are now a children's eye doctor and self-centred billionaire, and the more he uses his speed, the more he forgets his old life. In the end, after getting one of the above mortally wounded, he goes back again to make a CloseEnoughTimeline. Now, the only differences are that Cisco resents him for his brother's death, Joe West and Iris haven't talked in years, and he's had a co-worker for the past year who hates his guts. He almost goes back to reset this timeline too, before [[spoiler:Jay Garrick]] yanks him out for a lecturing.

** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' makes it even ''more'' confusing with the introduction of "time rings", which Gods use to time travel without creating alternate timelines. [[spoiler:Goku Black used a time ring to travel from Timeline 1 to Timeline 2 (Future Trunks' timeline) and caused havoc there, leading Future Trunks to go back to the Timeline 1 to ask for help.]]

At the end of that storyline, Timeline 2 is destroyed by Timeline 2's Zen-O and, thanks to a lot of string-pulling by the other gods, Timeline 4 is created where Goku Black and Zamasu, the one who kicked off these events, never ran havoc in the timeline.]]

* {{Justified}} in "Fanfic/BrotherOnBrotherDaughterOnMother", which takes the approach of explaining the [[TimeyWimeyBall inconsistent behavior]] of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' TimeTravel with the notion that time is like a rope composed of alternate timelines (or more specifically sequences of probabilistically determined events) that are fundamentally similar overall, but which can fray off dramatically different timelines in the event of major temporal incursions. The main example given is the MirrorUniverse, which was created by the Borg incursion in ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact''; the TimePolice and the Temporal Prime Directive exist to prevent such frays from happening, since they damage time itself.

* 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.
