* Many of the figures Creator/{{Hasbro}} made for the "Legends of Franchise/{{Batman}}" toyline that wasn't based on ''ComicBook/{{Knightfall}}'' fell under this as they set the characters at various points in time and different ideas, like Batman as a cyborg, an actual knight, or a pirate.

* WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls did a few in the last season. There's one set in the wild west where they're the Steamy Puff Girls and one framed as a dream the Professor has where they were created without Chemical X and therefore don't have powers.
* The annual [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Simpsons]] Halloween specials, ''WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror'', which usually involve movie parodies where the cast are sometimes put in the role of characters from the movie being spoofed, and lots of characters get [[AnyoneCanDie maimed and killed]].

** The "normal world" in Teal'c's [[CuckooNest hallucinations]] in "The Changeling" is also an example, and has even spawned a [[http://community.livejournal.com/firemanverse fanfiction community]]. So is the ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' episode "Vegas", but it's an actual AlternateUniverse.

** In ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' this was revealed to have been an AlternateUniverse to the main timeline when resident time-traveler Paradox cited it as an example of "[[TheMultiverse Cross-Time]]". Ben's foreknowledge of the future remained unexplained, however.

* AlternateTimeline: Some elements of the work's fictional history are different. Example: ''Friends,'' "The One That Could Have Been" (where Monica is fat, Ross is still married, Phoebe works on Wall Street, etc.).

** In its late 80's/early 90's incarnation, the series started relying on {{Cruel Twist Ending}}s. While ''What If?'' by definition tended to end unhappily, the second series relied on VillainSue, IdiotBall and ultimately stopped explaining the divergences' origin. One issue had Mephisto corrupting young Danny Ketch into a brutal SerialKiller without explaining why he didn't do this in the main universe.

* ''ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse'': There are way too many examples to count where the Ducks are plucked out of Duckburg and put into wildly different settings. For example, a prominent Italian one has Donald Duck as a down-on-his-luck Caledonian warlord trying to repel a Viking invasion.
