* The whole of ''Manga/UQHolder'' is an alternate universe to ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' in which Asuna didn't get sent back in time, resulting in a much worse series of events. To give a brief summary, in both universes Asuna went into stasis to stabilise the Magic World until it could be permanently stabilised by a separate plan. In the Negima universe, Asuna was sent back in time (after coming out of stasis) to the series' present. This greatly raised her friends' spirits which, combined with her [[AntiMagic unique power]], allowed them to defeat the Lifemaker, save Nagi (who was being possessed by the Lifemaker) and carefully reveal magic to the world. In the UQ Holder universe, Asuna was never sent back, her friends were not able to properly defeat the Lifemaker, the Lifemaker took Negi as a new host, several of Negi's allies were brainwashed into pawns or killed, and society has numerous problems due to an imperfect integration of magic.

* ''WesternAnimation/Shrek'': Farquaad is so into his idea of how to get Fiona and make her his queen, he refuses to listen to the Magic Mirror when it tries to warn him of Fiona's curse. If he had, he wouldn't have sent Shrek to rescue her, thus nothing else in the series would have happened.

* ''WebOriginal/SCPFoundation'': On January 13, 1917, an 11-year-old boy is waiting with his mother for his father, who had just returned home from Europe. In one timeline, she held his hand and the two barely managed to avoid a speeding car.
