* In the ''NightmareOfNunnally'' manga, Lelouch gets PoweredArmor instead of a compelling voice, and the situation that leads up to [[spoiler:the Euphinator incident]] doesn't happen. Instead, she ends up becoming [[spoiler:the Empress of Britannia]]. The setting's kindness extends far further than that. Suzaku did not kill his father and is thus a true knight rather than a DeathSeeker. Neither Mao nor Rolo get anywhere near Shirley. Nunnally ends [[spoiler:fully recovered physically and even mentally]], and with a new friend who might possibly be more. The only named characters that die are [[spoiler:Genbu, Mao, Rolo, Marianne, Charles, Clovis, and possibly Darlton]], which in turn means that the other characters don't have to angst about their friends and family being wiped out. Lelouch [[spoiler:does take CC's code, which in this setting was probably a mercy]], but parts on good terms with Nunnally and didn't break any hearts when leaving.
** In a postscript to ''Nightmare of Nunnally'', the author mentioned that he was impacted by the deaths of [[spoiler:Euphemia and Lelouch]] in canon, which compromised his objectivity. However, he also mentions that he doesn't know if this is positive or negative.

* One ''{{Manga/Parasyte}}'' H-doujin not only retcons Reiko's death, but also sets her up to be HappilyMarried to Mamoru (under the remarkably transparent guise of continuing her parasite-spawned-humans research).

* The ''Comicbook/{{New 52}}'' reboot has many fans trying to find a way to go back to the old continuity. Fics range from It's a hallucination caused by a villain to Donna Troy refusing to be erased from existence again and returning to dismantle the universe.

* ''Season8Redo'' rewrites the detested ending of That70sShow. The fic begins in the last quarter of season 7 and then rewrites the end of 7 before [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin redoing season 8]] and moving on in to season 9.

* ''Comicbook/FinalCrisis: Legion of Three Worlds'' is essentially a fix fic by Creator/GeoffJohns, simultaneously clearing up the ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'' continuity boggle '''and''' bringing back two unfairly dead characters, Kid ComicBook/TheFlash and Superboy, the latter of which Johns had to kill off in ''Comicbook/InfiniteCrisis''. (It was either Superboy or ComicBook/{{Nightwing}}, so all things considered...)

** On the other hand, the franchise has go to the ''opposite'' direction and they also outright killed characters who are supposed to survive at the end of their series, normally villains who [[KarmaHoudini didn't get what they deserve in their original series]] like [[spoiler:[[Anime/AfterWarGundamX The Frost Bros.]], [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Haruki Kusakabe]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Katejina Loos]]]](through she is portrayed much more sympathetically in most media she appears in and considering [[AFateWorseThanDeath what became of her in her own series]], death would be a ''mercy'' for [[spoiler: Katejina]]).

Added DiffLines:

** [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Char Aznable]] deserves an special mention regarding this as being Char not only one of the most popular characters of the whole ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise, but also one of the most influential of ''all anime history'', how much of his fate is handled compared with how he ends in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack'' [[spoiler:when he and Amuro dies during the final battle]] varies depending of the game:
*** In the classical continuity, Char [[spoiler:lives because the events of the movie never happens and he still sticks with his Quattro's persona from ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'']].
*** The [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Alpha continuity]] is the only one when follows the movie continuity [[spoiler:and Char finally bites the dust for real, while for obvious reasons Amuro lives]].
*** The [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ Z continuity]] has an interesting twist of the events of the movie, due of the inclusion of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Full Frontal]]: [[spoiler:not only Char survives, but also he has a change of heart as well, and the events of the movie are now carried by Full Frontal instead, so the players are now being able to get rid of him without guilt]].

* There are quite a few fics of ''TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' that attempt to correct the tragic conclusions of Link's relationships with Saria and Navi. The former [[spoiler:becomes a Sage and thus can't be with him or even in the same world as him, despite the many, ''many'' hints that she loves him]], and the latter [[spoiler:leaves Link at the end of the game without the slightest explanation, not even a word]].
* In a similar vein, the direct sequel, ''TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' ends with Link [[ButNowIMustGo inevitably saving and leaving Termina]], even though his reasons for doing so [[AllThereInTheManual aren't explicitly stated in the game]].[[note]][[spoiler:It's because he was searching for Navi. Link had wound up in Termina mid-journey.]][[/note]] A surprising number of fics have caught onto the fact that Link made so many good friends in Termina and fixed so many of their problems, and then he just leaves even though his life in Hyrule had... admittedly rather sucked. They often fix it by just having Link stay in Termina and live a happy life, commonly being adopted by Cremia or occasionally Anju.



* Many fans of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' wish Asriel Dreemurr could somehow be saved so he could join the other monsters on the surface after the True Pacifist ending. ''FanFic/ADreamerReborn'' tells the story of Frisk sacrificing themself to allow Asriel to that.

* 20th Century Fox's ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'' spin-off is practically a public apology to the fanbase for [[InNameOnly mangling the character beyond all recognition]] in ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine''. The best part? They practically ''[[SelfDeprecation admit it]]'' in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPZHBjyUGhQ reveal trailer]], with Deadpool openly mocking the studio for having "inexplicably sewed his [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] mouth shut the first time". In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyKWUTwSYAs the full uncensored trailer]], you just ''know'' that they're doing their damnedest to get it right this time when the Merc With a Mouth [[NoFourthWall mocks his actor's past roles]], draws cartoons, drops F-bombs, dances to hip-hop music, and guns down {{mooks}} in his classic red suit. Hell, the very existence of a Red Band trailer is basically an assurance to the fans that [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids they won't be watering Deadpool down for the kiddies]].

* Creator/TimBurton's version of ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' is a low-key FixFic for both the original novel and the earlier film ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory''. Though it's faithful to the source material in most respects, one notable difference is that it drastically reimagines the characters of Violet Beauregard and Mike Teavee. In both the book and the original film, the four other children are all supposed to be {{anthropomorphic personification}}s of various vices and evils common among children, making Charlie Bucket stand out as an idealized paragon of virtue. While it certainly works for the fat and gluttonous Augustus Gloop and the materialistic {{spoiled brat}} Veruca Salt, it's a little more questionable with Violet (who likes to chew gum) and Mike (who watches too much TV). As quite a few viewers and critics have pointed out over the years, excessive gum-chewing and TV-watching might be slightly unhealthy habits, but they're ultimately just that; neither is really a sign of bad moral character. Burton's version apparently picked up on that fact, and instead chose to portray Violet as an egotistical CompetitionFreak with a StageMom, and to portray Mike as an InsufferableGenius with anger issues. While both still have their vices from the book, they're just symptoms of their deeper issues; Violet constantly chews gum because she takes pride in beating a World Record for gum-chewing, and Mike constantly plays video games as an outlet for his rage (and presumably because he has NoSocialSkills, and has few friends).

** ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ'' deserves special mention, as the first game fixes the massive BrokenBase that is ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEedDestiny Gundam SEED Destiny]]'' by having everyone involved act more intelligently and treats both Kira and Shinn's sides as equally good and heroic. Then ''Z2 Saisei-Hen'' went and fixed ''Anime/CodeGeass'' by [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbMxufJKDqo letting the player decide whether or not to betray Lelouch, and thus ultimately prevent Zero Requiem from happening]].]] On the other hand, ''Z2 Hakai-hen'' doesn't let the player prevent the "big three" plotline deaths of [[spoiler:[[GurrenLagann Kamina]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 the original Lockon Stratos]], and [[Anime/CodeGeass Euphemia li Britannia]]. The latter [[UnexplainedRecovery ultimately shows up, alive and well]], as Suzaku mopes post-FLEIJA explosion.]]
