** Just before Fate escapes [[LotusEaterMachine her dream world]] in the movie version of [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs the second season]], we see what life would have been like had it been real. In this case, it's less about what could have been and more [[spoiler: [[ClonesArePeopleToo Fate coming to terms with being a separate person from Alica]]]] and embracing the future.

* Roy Revant, the aloof adoptive father of the title character of ''SoltyRei'' frantically pleaded for his little girl to not go through with the suicidal HeroicSacrifice to save the planet, even going as far as telling her that he would take her to the amusement park like any father would his daughter. She simply smiles with tears in her eyes, and says that she's happy to have been his daughter, and bravely steps into the shuttle to her doom. [[spoiler:Some time later, he goes up and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming finds her]]]].

* At the end of Meakashi-hen, one of the most gruesome arcs of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'', the VN includes a flashback to a scene that would have occurred if Shion had [[spoiler:remembered her promise to Satoshi]], in which she serves as [[spoiler:an older sister figure to Satoko]]. Sadly, this scene occurs only after [[spoiler:Shion murdered Satoko gruesomely and herself fell off a building to her death]]. It takes until Minagoroshi-hen for the relationship pictured to actually develop in one of the alternate universes (although in Matsuri, Tsukiotoshi-hen also appears to take this trajectory).

** In the VN it is only used as a TIP and is shown after the arc. In the manga on the other hand it's shown while [[spoiler: [[DrivenToSuicide Shion is falling towards her death]] and [[RedemptionEqualsDeath ends with her dead body lying on the ground.]]]]
--> [[spoiler: Shion]]: ''But ...It's okay, right? To make it into something like this? It's okay, right...? [[TearJerker I'm sorry... for being born.]]



* In HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi's Meakashi-hen, a variation on this was done. Just before Shion [[spoiler:commits suicide after killing most of her friends]], she realizes that she CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot if rather than focusing on [[spoiler:getting revenge for Satoshi's disappearance]], she had focused instead on following Satoshi's request to take care of Satoko. After she [[spoiler:kills herself]], the audience is treated to a brief scene of Shion joining the game club and taking care of Satoko in such an alternate future that was never allowed to happen that arc.
