* In IDW's "Deviations" event, we're shown heavy deviations from canon for five continuities: ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersMovie'', ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', ''Franchise/GIJoe'', ''ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIDW'' and ''Series/TheXFiles''. In three of them - ''Transformers, Ghostbusters'' and ''G.I. Joe'' - we see that even though [[spoiler:Optimus Prime lives, the Ghostbusters chicken out in crossing the streams and Cobra successfully take over the world with the M.A.S.S. Device]], canon sorts itself out and the original endings happen.

Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/TheSenshiFiles'': Despite Harry adopting [[Franchise/SailorMoon Makoto Kino]] shortly after the events of ''Literature/StormFront'', the basic canon of the Dresden-verse seems to be unchanged. {{Justified}} in that the earlier plots tend to happen to Dresden, rather than as a result of him, and the story itself being focused on the Tokyo end of things.

* Creator/HarryTurtledove's ''{{Timeline-191}}'' series is notorious for this. Not only are many of the same historical figures around (albeit often in different positions), but most of the story arc is copy/pasted from the history of Germany and France in UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne and UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo including [[spoiler:the Holocaust happening to southern blacks]].

* In Creator/KimNewman and Eugene Byrne's ''Back in the USSA'', American government and capitalism collapse in 1917 and Eugene Debs leads a Socialist revolution. After that things go much as in the USSR in our timeline, but with American figures -- e.g., Al Capone fills the role of Stalin, J. Edgar Hoover is the equivalent of Lavrentiy Beria, and Eliot Ness is an agent of the Federal Bureau of Ideology. Dissidents risk getting exiled to Alaska.

* In ''The Dragon Waiting'' by Creator/JohnMFord, Christianity never took hold in the Roman Empire, Constantinople didn't fall to the Turks, and France was partitioned between England and Byzantium sometime in the 12th century. The Wars of the Roses still seemingly happen exactly as they do in reality up through the crowning of Edward IV, with the exception of one relatively insignificant death.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', the basic premise of the movie's setting is that even though human beings never existed, [[ArtMajorBiology some highly improbable convergent evolution came along]] and [[FunnyAnimal anthropomorphized]] ''every single mammal species in existence'', and civilization all the way up to modern society emerged in almost exactly the same way as it would have with humans.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Justified}} in ''FanFic/HarryPotterAndTheNightmaresOfFuturesPast''. There is a mysterious character known only as "the agent-in-place" who somehow knows what happened in the original timeline, possesses vast resources and impressive magical power, and secretly acts behind the scenes to ensure that things like Harry violating the Decree For The Reasonable Restriction Of Underage Wizardry, Ginny getting possessed by the diary and Harry getting entered into the Triwizard Tournament still happen, no matter how hard Harry tries to prevent them from happening.
** Notably, Harry has no idea that the "agent-in-place" exists, which means that from his point of view, these canon events still happen even though it no longer makes the least bit of sense for them to happen.

**** It's mentioned that the reason he lacks delta brain waves is caused by him "doing the nasty in the pasty" & becoming his own grandfather.

Added DiffLines:

* According to WordOfGod, the MegaManBattleNetwork and VideoGame/MegaManClassic series are a divergence centering on what branch of research was primarily funded and which was cut, either Network AI for the former or Robotics for the latter. Somehow, most of the Robots and AIs in both universes share the same names, abilities, weapons, appearance, and general motif for no apparent reason, as well as most of the people involved are on their same respective sides of good and evil.
