* In ''Fanfic/{{Intercom}}'', the first game changer is when the intercom is broken, beginning the fic by establishing the new dynamic between Riley and her emotions.
** Second was when Riley touches [[spoiler: the emotion console]], creating [[spoiler: white memories, and a white CORE memory]], which would become an essential part of the fic afterwards.
** Third was when the emotions told Riley the truth about what REALLY was going on in her mind during the movie. While Riley decides not to hate or banish them for this, it does create a change in their relation to each other, and marks the beginning of Riley [[spoiler: going behind their backs for 2 secret plans]]

** A meta one in ''{{VideoGame/Halo 2}}''. The game opens with Master Chief's bold defense of Earth. But the Covenant carrier flees and the second half of the game turns into a political plot playing as [[VillainProtagonist the Arbiter]]. That said, the game also has a straight example regarding the entire original trilogy: The commencement of the Covenant civil war gives humanity its first real hope of actually winning its own war against the Covenant.

* In ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', the war on the ring progresses in a military fashion, with humans beating back [[ScaryDogmaticAliens the Covenant]]. Then the ring turns out to have been carrying an EldritchAbomination, which is set free and proceeds to start infecting anyone it encounters. A later game changer is when the ring turns out to be a super weapon, which [[GoMadFromTheIsolation its insane curator]] is trying to fire [[WellIntentionedExtremist to contain the infection]].

Added DiffLines:

* Happens for both series crossed in ''FanFic/KingsOfRevolution''. For ''Anime/CodeGeass'', Lelouch has a Device instead of Geass and [[ManipulativeBitch Quattro]] to back him up, which makes significant changes to the decisions he makes. As for ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'', an international terrorist organization puts the TSAB on edge with LoopholeAbuse in their laws, PragmaticVillainy and weapons that slaughter Mages by the thousands.

* ''Franchise/{{Mistborn}}'':
** One of the biggest limitations of the Metallic Arts was that one had to be born with the power to access them, and the potential is inherited. Most of the lucky gifted are then only given access to one Art with one metal, and further feruchemical metalminds can only be drawn on by the person who stored power in them. The only exception to this was killing and stealing another's power via hemalurgy. In ''Literature/BandsOfMourning'' (third book of the ''Literature/WaxAndWayne'' sub-series), research into nicrosil, long included in the metal charts but never explained, allows for the creation of open metalminds, usable by any random person who picks one up. Nicrosil also allows the storage of allomancy powers, breaking open those magics for anyone to use as well. A source of the original magic is needed, and there seems to be new limits with combining magics, but this one metal can potentially change everything in the Elendel Basin. The southerners and their Magitek are a taste of things to come.
** For example, Feruchemical gold lets you store health, tapping it later to heal faster. The big limit is that if you store health while you're already sick and try and tap it to heal faster, you get no net gain. But if you can use health someone else has stored, then healthy people can store it and give it to sick people, sort of like donating blood.
