* In the StarTrekExpandedUniverse novel ''Q-Squared'', Trelane causes several parallel universes to come together: the Prime 'verse, the "Klingon war" 'verse (nearly identical to the one shown in "Yesterday's Enterprise"), and a 'verse where Jack Crusher is alive and is in command of the ''Enterprise''. While Jack is alive in the third 'verse, Wesley died as a toddler, resulting in Jack and Beverly's divorce. As a matter of fact, Trelane notes that Jack is dead in ''every other universe'' but that one. [[spoiler:He [[AteHisGun eats his phaser]] at the end, after accidentally killing Beverly for sleeping with Picard, his NumberTwo]].

* {{Exploited| Trope}} in ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty''. Rick takes advantage of this at the end of "Rick Potion #9"; [[spoiler:when he accidentally releases a plague that causes a [[ZombieApocalypse Cronenberg Apocalypse]], he and Morty escape to a very particular universe where their counterparts cured the Cronenberg plague ''and'' were killed almost immediately afterwards by an unrelated incident, and take their place after burying them in the backyard. Notably, while Morty is rightfully deeply disturbed by the whole thing, Rick takes it all in stride and resumes with business as usual immediately afterwards, implying that it isn't the first he has pulled this trick]].

* ''Series/TheManInTheHighCastle'': It is revealed that in this timeline Reich Marshall Herman Goering and his family were executed on Hitler's orders after Goering tried to usurp power from him after the Fuehrer went into a brief coma several years prior to 1962. This mirrors Goering's similar real life attempt at a coup when the Third Reich collapsed in 1945.

* ZigZagged in ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' MirrorUniverse episodes, where they established a rule that if your alternate universe counterpart dies, you also die. Which didn't stop them from breaking that rule with Iolaus. The rule can be avoided if you happen in be "in-between" universes when your double dies. Prime!Iolaus was killed by Dahak, while Mirror!Iolaus was trapped between the worlds. After Hercules brings Mirror!Iolaus back with him, and he loses his cowardice, everyone pretty much forgets that there ever was another Iolaus. Additionally, when Prime!Ares kills the Sovereign (Herc's double with a BeardOfEvil) in-between worlds, Hercules is fine.
