** Probably the more famous Buffy Elseworld is "The Wish," where Cordelia makes a wish that "Buffy never came to Sunnydale." The result is an apocalyptic town where The Master rose with to stop him and has turned Xander and Willow into vampires.

In {{fanfiction}} this is known as an Alternate Universe (or AU), where the characters generally remain the same but the setting changes. {{High school AU}}s are very popular, probably because many of the writers are themselves in high school. (On This Very Wiki, we use a broader definition of AlternateUniverse, of which Elseworld is a subset.) Not to be confused with {{VideoGame/Elsword}}.

** In its late 80's/early 90's incarnation, the series started relying on OuterLimitsTwist endings. 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 serial killer without explaining why he didn't do this in the main universe.

* ''Anime/SoraOKakeruShoujo'''s ninth episode plucks up the entirety of its main cast and sets them in a modern day world that tells a baseball story instead of the colony warfare one that had been playing out up until then. QT powers are still present despite this.

** In ''ComicBook/HolyTerror'', Oliver Cromwell's rebellion lasted much longer and spread out all over the world, creating the Commonwealth, a theocratic dictatorship where non-Christians are persecuted. Batman is a BadassPreacher who rebels after learning that the Commonwealth had his parents assassinated for serving in LaResistance.

Added DiffLines:

** ''ComicBook/DCComicsBombshells'' takes place in the [=1940s=] and features some of [=DC=]'s biggest superheroines (and a few of its female supervillains) during World War II. It spun off of a series of 40's-style pinup statues and comic cover variants.

** ''ComicBook/SupermanRedSon'' is a miniseries about what Franchise/{{Superman}} would have been like if he had landed in the Soviet Union (specifically Ukraine, which seems to be the closest the writers could find to a Soviet version of Kansas) instead of the United States; he ends up a KnightTemplar. President Luthor defends the United States from the Red Menace with Superman's RoguesGallery and {{Green Lantern}}s. Franchise/{{Batman}} has a [[NiceHat very sexy hat]].
