* 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.

* 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]].

* ''Film/StargateContinuum'': When SG-1 travels back to Earth and arrive in [[MakeWrongWhatOnceWentRight a timeline that has been altered by one of their enemies]], this turns out to be the case with some of them. Carter's counterpart (an astronaut) was killed by performing a HeroicSacrifice during a space mission, while Mitchell's counterpart ''never even existed'' because his grandfather was killed by the villain during his visit, thus making him a literal example of a GrandfatherParadox. Jackson's counterpart however is still alive, but is living on the fringe of society as a crackpot scientist because his AncientAstronauts hypothesis never got any recognition.
