* ''ArchieComics'' has one defining feature. [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/Archie%20636%20promo Issue 636]] got the population of Riverdale magically made [[GenderBender the opposite sex]]. But [[BettyAndVeronica one thing]] never, ever, changes -- and the cover doesn't even try [[NeverTrustATrailer kidding readers]] about this anymore:

* In the ''{{Dragonlance}}'' novels -- specifically the ''Legends'' trilogy, which is aimed squarely at TimeTravel -- the point of view is that, if you're one of the races that was created along with the universe, it doesn't matter what you do in the past, events stay pretty much the same. The underlying principle is that time essentially is like a fast-flowing river -- if you throw a pebble into that river, it may cause a few tiny ripples, but these ripples will be lost in the overall flow of the stream.

* An important component of {{Achron}}'s design is to ensure player orders [[ArtificialBrilliance happen on every iteration of the timeline when reasonable]] (i.e. when your opponent isn't [[TerminatorTwosome actively interfering]]), so that players don't get frustrated [[ArtificialStupidity because a unit ending up 2 steps to the left 2 minutes ago]] caused their main production center to cease to have ever existed. Ensuring that one's strategy as a whole happens despite the interference of opponents is a key component of the metagame.

** The ''TNG'' ExpandedUniverse novel ''Dark Mirror'' treads similar ground; there's still an ''Enterprise''-D, with most of the same crew in most of the same roles, except that Worf is a galley slave and Wesley Crusher is a ''total badass'' who attempts to [[KlingonPromotion kill Picard and take over the Enterprise]].

***In another Treehouse of Horror segment, Bart acquires the keys of a Time machine and travels back to 1974 (so he can get a comic book cheap). While there, he finds out that if his pareents never met, he would be rich. So he splits his parents up and travels back to 2012 (the present when the episode aired). Even though Marge married a rich man, he, Lisa, and Maggie are still born. The mansion they live in is in the same place as his old home as well.



* Despite my going back in time and killing Hitler (sorry, it took until the end of WW2; he's a slippery guy), you are still here reading TVTropes, and Trump is STILL ruining, I mean running, for President.

* In ''DecadesOfDarkness'', Napoleon manages to win the battle of Waterloo, only to lose against the Prussians under Blücher afterwards, making "Waterloo" in this world the synonym of "a victory claimed too early".
** And most people in-universe think that the secession of New England was inevitable, going as far as stating that * Americans and Yankees are different people.

* While non-DL6 world in an Franchise/AceAttorney fanfic ''Fanfic/ACompleteTurnabout'' is completely different from the one we know some things don't change. Phoenix and Iris still meet and fall in love, Phoenix and Maya still become friends, SL-9 still happens and [[spoiler: Karma still kills Gregory Edgeworth although much later]].

* The Delta Episode of ''VideoGames/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' implies this of the Pokemon timelines: the mechanic of Mega Evolution, discovered in the ancient past by [[BigDamnHeroes Rayquaza putting a stop to the end of the world,]] is a well-hidden secret, though numerous trainers or varying degrees of skill and plot importance have access to it. The Delta Episode implies the existence of [[RetCon another world, almost identical,]] where Mega Evolution wasn't discovered - this world being the setting for all games prior to Generation VI. Aside from a few details, the same trainers exist and operate in almost the same capacity without the [[SuperMode Mega Evolved Pokemon,]] many of which are drastically different or have [[OlympusMons world-ending power.]]
