* ''Literature/Discworld'':
* The Roundworld Project: Created by Hex the magic AI as an emergency dumping-ground for a thaumic overload, an orange-sized spherical universe is kept on Rincewind's desk at Unseen University. Most of the UU faculty think this narrativium-deprived alternate reality is a silly waste of time; even so, the Archchancellor occasionally (meaning, whenever a new ''Discworld/ScienceOfDiscworld'' book is published) tasks his wizards to offset interlopers' tampering with the pocket universe's history. Silly or not, it ''is'' University property. [[spoiler: "Roundworld" is, of course, our own universe.]]

* Music/{{Gloryhammer}}: The first album, ''Tales From The Kingdom Of Fife'' is set in a Fantasy Scotland with unicorns, magic, trolls and goblins. The second album, ''Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards'' is set ten centuries later in the grim darkness of 1992, when Zargothrax, the EvilSorcerer from the first album, comes back to wreak havoc with the aid of the Goblin King and the Chaos Wizards.

* A popular fad onWebsite/{{YTMND}} is to take pre-existing memes and create Alternate Universe counterparts, usually under the PTKFGS moniker ("Punch The Keys, For God's Sake!", another one of SeanConnery's lines from the famous scene in ''FindingForrester'' that named the website), although even more Alternate Universe versions exist, usually as either "Yes Yes" or the elusive "Fourth Corner", where no-one can really agree on a final name for the latter.

** "The Counter-Clock Incident". In the other universe, time runs in reverse, and the only way to travel between universes is to go through a dead star/nova at Warp 36.

** "[[ComicBook/TransformersShatteredGlass Shattered Glass]]", the 2008 [=BotCon=] event featuring heroic Decepticons and evil Autobots. With [[BeardOfEvil goatees]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', there are some differences in terms of history and geography. The American colonies were founded by William Dewey, ancestor of Beach City's Mayor Dewey. Mexico doesn't exist, and Florida is an island separated from the mainland. State names are different as well- Pennsylvania is called Keystone, and Delaware, Maryland, and Virgina are one large state, called Delmarva.

* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' has had several small-scale [=AU=] [=RPs=]. These range from simple 'What-If' scenarios (What If the students had been rescued on Day 3, What If ''[=SOTF=]'' really ''was'' a TV show, etc) to radically different concepts such as [[HumongousMecha Mech]] ''[=SOTF=]'' and ''[=SOTF=]'' with zombies.
** Fairly recently, a spin-off site effectively dedicated to Alternate Universe versions of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' was created, with the pilot in an interesting ContinuityNod, being an alternate version of ''Literature/BattleRoyale'', the concept which [=SotF=] was based off.
*** The Mini site also now hosts ''SOTF: Evolution'', which is like normal SOTF, only with 20 characters instead of the LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters the main site has, and with SuperSerum induced mutations instead of designated weapons.
* ''{{Tasakeru}}'' takes place in an alternate universe where humans have never existed.

* The ''Series/{{Community}}'' episode "Remedial Chaos Theory" features the group rolling a die to choose who will go to the door to get the pizza. [[GenreSavvy Abed]] warns that this will create 6 (actually 7) alternate universes. Everyone else of course dismisses this, but we the audience get to watch each one unfold. The differences ranges from different characters hooking up, mental break downs occurring, everyone having an awesome night, and ''everything going to shit''. [[spoiler: The versions of the characters in the universe where everything went to shit end up being recurring villains.]]
