* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' has plenty of alternate universes to choose from. Due to the timeline shenanigans of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', there are at least three alternate versions of Hyrule: One where Ganondorf was stopped before he could claim the Triforce, one where Ganondorf did claim the Triforce (and was stopped by Link), and one where Ganondorf defeated Link. There are also many "realms" such as the Sacred Realm, where the Triforce is usually kept (although at some points it was known as the Dark World.) There is also a [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Realm]], the world that [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap the Minish]] come from, [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds Lorule]] and others.

** ''Hyrule Warriors'' is implied to take place in the Child Timeline of the official canon, or at least an alternate version of it. Within the game itself, the ''Wind Waker'', ''A Link Between Worlds'', and ''Link's Awakening'' characters are explicitly mentioned as being from their own dimensions, being this game's version of the Adult Timeline. If ''Hyrule Warriors'' is treated as being in its own alternate universe, that means there's a minimum of ''six''.

* ''Blog/ThePredespairKids'' was originally meant to be a prequel to the events of ''VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}},'' but it branched off into its own universe with [[spoiler: Mukuro Ikusaba pulling a FaceHeelTurn before the Tragedy ever takes place]]. Although even before then, there were some pretty big divergences from canon here and there, such as [[GamerChick Chiaki]] being a RidiculouslyHumanRobot jointly built by Chihiro and Kazuichi.

* The season 1 finale of ''Series/TheLibrarians'' has Flynn and Eve travel through three alternate realities, after [[spoiler:[[BigBad Dulaque]] messes with the Loom of Fate]]. In each of the three realities, one of the Librarians-in-Training is the Librarian, since Flynn never took the job offer 10 years ago. Strangely, Eve appears to have been recruited as the Guardian at the same time, but has since been killed under the same circumstances (stabbed by Excalibur during the events of the pilot). Each of the three realities is a CrapsackWorld. At the end of the episode, [[spoiler:all three help Flynn and Eve restore the Loom, even though this would mean that they themselves would be written out of existence. Their prime counterparts don't remember a thing]].

* The ''Tyranny of King Washington'' downloadable content for ''AssassinsCreedIII'' features the player character waking up in an alternate universe in which his mother is still alive, he never joined the Assassins, and George Washington went mad with power after acquiring some LostTechnology and declared himself King of America. In addition to the alternate historical elements, there are some supernatural powers present as well, truly separating the setting of ''Tyranny'' from the main ''Assassin's Creed'' setting, which is LikeRealityUnlessNoted.

* Season 6 of ''Series/{{Lost}}'' features an alternate universe where 815 never crashed, and many other details are different. WordOfGod has it that neither timeline should be called "alternate" or "parallel" as those words imply that one is more real than the other. [[InsistentTerminology Flash-sideways]] has been decided to be the proper term. People in the flash-sideways actually retain memories from the other timeline, with [[BadAss Desmond]] seemingly able to switch between both willingly. [[spoiler:[[DeadAllAlong The finale blows the flash-sideways out of the water entirely.]]]]

* ''Steel Ball Run'' is an Alternate Universe to ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', created ''in-continuity'' after [[spoiler: Made In Heaven reset the universe.]]
** The BigBad of that arc had a [[PsychicPowers Stand]] based around weaponizing a similar concept. He could escape death by pulling an identical version of himself from another universe to replace him, and could also force others to [[NeverTheSelvesShallMeet come into contact with their dopplegangers, and thus be obliterated]]. The other universes are almost identical, with the sole prominent difference being [[spoiler: the lack of the Holy Corpse in all but the main universe]].
