* In ''Film/SlidingDoors'', ''Film/SlidingDoors'' examines two alternate timelines of a woman's life which go down drastically different paths depending on whether or not she catches the main character train one day. She sometimes gets a sense of Deja Vu when she meets someone DejaVu about people or events that are important to her in the other timeline but she has never met in her own timeline.

* In ''Comicbook/HouseOfM'', Peter Parker, whose life is perfect, goes mad from the nagging feeling he doesn't deserve it, and obsessively writes an imaginary journal where everyone hates Spider-Man, Uncle Ben and Gwen Stacy are dead, and it's ''all his fault''. Setting the self-loathing aside, he appears to be tapping into his "real" history somehow.

Contrast with AllohistoricalAllusion, where the reference to another universe (usually our own) is more of an in-joke by the writers than anything significant.

Just like a Flashback or FlashForward, a Flash Sideways can be in a narrow or wide definition. The narrow definition is when a character has one of these three because of a resurfacing memory, some kind of supernatural connection or whatever. The wide definition is when a show or movie itself has one of the three. In the wide definition, they don't have to be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] on the contrary, the entire point can be to give the viewers information that the characters don't have access to. Flashbacks and flashsideways have the same name both in the wide and in the narrow definition. Flash-forwards are so called in the wide definition only. In the narrow definition they are known as [[Film/MinorityReport precogs]] or {{Seers}}.

* In the sixth season of ''Series/{{Lost}}'', the characters' [[AlternateSelf Alternate Selves]] in the AlternateTimeline gradually start remembering the lives of their counterparts in the timeline of the first five seasons. [[WordOfGod Team Darlton]] [[TropeNamer coined the trope's name]], although they used it in the wide definition, to describe the idea of intercutting events in different universes (à la [[FlashForward flash-forwards]] and [[FlashBack flashbacks]]). [[spoiler:It turns out that it was a big subversion, though: The alternate timeline was, in fact, [[FlashForward just the afterlife.]] Though it's debatable whether the alternate timeline being the afterlife and a parallel world are mutually exclusive.]]

* Murakoks from ''Literature/LabyrinthsOfEcho'' live like this -- sometimes the contact with alternate selves intensifying to HiveMind level. The drawback is that actual travel between the worlds is not an option, since moving from one's correct place in the network means immediate insanity. They also [[BlueAndOrangeMorality tend to see things in the different light from most humans]]: Koba from World of the Rod is a Beggars' Foreman who refused to join Secret Investigations in order to keep some sort of balance between his selves, [[BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy Koba from World of the Spider]]... you know ''[[JosefStalin whose]]'' pseudonym it is, right?
