* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', [[ForWantOfANail Beforus serves as one for Alternia]]. At first it appears that the Beforus trolls are the GoodCounterpart to the trolls we know and love, but we soon see that they're easily capable of doing terrible things. The only difference is that they do it with a IDidWhatIhadToDo mentality as opposed to ForTheEvulz

* ''Comicbook/{{Exiles}}'', of the MarvelUniverse, had an issue where Galactus restored worlds instead of eating them, and the Silver Surfer was a power-hungry despot who had destroyed his own homeworld. The first issue of ''Exiles'' was in a universe where Magneto was the benevolent teacher who wanted mutants and humans to live in harmony, and Professor X believed there could only be peace when humanity was eradicated.
** The ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse'' has elements of this trope; ComicBook/{{Magneto}} leads LaResistance - including a GoodIsNotNice version of Sabretooth and a version of Colossus who is a psychotic AntiHero - and there is a human resistance including a heroic Doctor Doom and Sentinels actually protecting mankind, versus a dystopic mutant tyranny whose ranks include [[TheHero Cyclops]] and his brother [[TheLancer Havok]] as well as [[TheSmartGuy Beast]], now known as Dark Beast, as well as a new character called Abyss who was later introduced into the mainstream comics as a heroic character. However, though Dark Beast is a cruel and sadistic MadScientist and a despicable piece of work, Cyclops is just an AntiVillain who does a HeelFaceTurn, and as the title suggests this is a world where recurring ComicBook/XMen villain [[EvilOverlord Apocalypse]] has achieved world domination and if anything has actually gotten ''worse''; other villains like [[EvilutionaryBiologist Mister Sinister]] merely serve as his minions and are still evil, while most heroes and villains from other parts of the Marvel Universe didn't change sides, they were just killed when Apocalypse nuked the United States and started purging humanity.

*** The animated ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' also had the Justice Lords universe - a variation on the regular DCAU in which the death of TheFlash resulted in the League/Lords becoming a totalitarian dictatorship. The arc began life as a movie about the Crime Syndicate, but was retooled to a more iron-fisted Justice League. Without explicit ties to any past work, the original idea finally saw light years later as "Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths."

* Parodied in a "lost episode" of ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'', which retells the story of the {{Pilot}}, except instead of watching Carson Daly, Earl flips over to ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and is inspired by Stewie Griffin to take revenge on everyone he feels has wronged him. He is eventually killed after failing to take revenge on his old bullying victim Kenny for making him "feel stupid".

* From the ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' fandom comes the FanFic/ReverseFallsAU, in which Dipper and Mabel (often but not always given the surname "Gleeful") are a pair of ruthless, sometimes outright AxCrazy CreepyTwins. More often than not Mabel will be a StalkerWithACrush to the now-heroic Gideon, while Dipper begins a much more... [[BelligerentSexualTension belligerent]] relationship with Pacifica. That is, if the setting isn't just an excuse to write an inverted [[MindGameShip BillDip]] fic.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'''s take on this is the Momswap AU, where the homeworld gems Jasper, Lapis Lazuli, and Peridot take the place of Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl as Steven's surrogate moms and the rebels fighting for Earth, while the canon Crystal Gems are the threatening Homeworld gems. Sometimes [[BigBad Yellow Diamond]] is Steven's mother instead of Rose Quartz, and sometimes everyone is swapped- even Steven. It all depends on what interpretation you're talking about.

* ''Literature/{{The Mirage}}'' is a novel about a Mirror Universe War on Terror, where a liberated, cosmopolitan United Arab States is attacked by a fundamentalist Christian America and ends up invading them in retaliation. Of course, the fact that it's such a funhouse mirror version of our world is key to the plot...
