** The ''ComicBook/BatmanAndCaptainAmerica'' crossover that's the source of the image in EvenEvilHasStandards (where the Joker terminates a partnership with the Red Skull upon realizing that the Skull is legitimately a Nazi and not faking it) is officially one of these, as it takes place during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and Batman's entire career is subject to ComicBookTime, meaning that the War hadn't been part of his backstory for decades.

It's also part of the same universe as ''ComicBook/SupermanAndBatmanGenerations'', an Elseworlds story, that shows what might happen if Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne weren't subjected to ComicBookTime.

* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}: Hearts Of Steel'' was an Elseworld where some of the Transformers wake up on Earth during the [[{{Steampunk}} Industrial Revolution]] rather than in 1984 as they did in ''TransformersGeneration1'', and took corresponding vehicle modes such as trains, propeller aircraft and warships. Human characters in the comic included John Henry, Creator/MarkTwain, and Creator/JulesVerne. According to writer Chuck Dixon this was meant to be a possible part of regular continuity, but numerous discrepancies (most notably the fact that the Transformers are seen waging war on Earth during the ice age, in the forms of fantastical creatures) contradict this. Nevertheless, ContinuityPorn aficionado John Barber took the challenge to fit ''Hearts of Steel'' into regular continuity during the mini-series ''ComicBook/{{Revolutionaries}}'' by proposing that the steampunk Transformers [[spoiler:were actually a crew of beast Transformers who were shot down to ice age Earth by Shockwave and brainwashed by him into thinking they were the genuine Optimus Prime, Bumblebee et al. and fighting each other ForScience... until they were forced to go into stasis when Shockwave was temporarily put out of commission in "Spotlight: Shockwave," waking up ages later during the Industrial Revolution with the brainwashing still intact.]]

* A common theme in the ''Fanfic/HalloweenUnspectacular'' series is sticking characters from various series and placing them in different time periods from their respective canons. There's usually a least a few in each edition.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueGodsAndMonsters'' features this as its premise, as Superman is General Zod's son, Batman is a vampiric Kirk Langstrom, and Wonder Woman is [[ComicBook/NewGods Orion's wife Bekka]]. Furthermore, Amanda Waller is the President of the USA and Dr. Sivana works for her, and several scientists like Ray Palmer and Victor Fries are normal scientists. The tie-in miniseries, ''Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles'' explores this further as Harley Quinn is an ax-crazy serial killer who's not above hurting children, [[spoiler: Brainiac is a genetically-engineered little kid who can't control his powers, and Giganta is a mecha.]]

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' had the Parallel Works videos, which were Music Videos that mostly took place in alternate continuities, like one where the characters are in Medieval Europe, [[SeriousBusiness play Pachinko Games with Giant Robots]], a Samurai Epic, A SteamPunk Western MirrorUniverse, and a universe bearing suspicious resemblance to ''Anime/{{FLCL}}''. One of the few that wasn't was the eighth one, (for "All Right You Bastards, Get Fired Up!"), instead showing the [[StartOfDarkenss rise and fall of Lordgenome.]]
