* In ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', several good and bad {{Kaiju}} get transported to Equestria. In the spin-off ''Sound of Thunder'', Raiga finds herself in Equestria and thinks she will soon be reunited with Godzilla and her other friends, except it turns out she arrived in the mirror Equestria from ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW''. To make matters worse, the Kaiju transported to this world are from a mirror universe as well. Godzilla is a sadistic murderer instead of a hero, ''Battra'' Lea is an OmnicidalManiac instead of a guardian, etc. On the flipside, Xenilla and Destroyah are heroes instead of villains. Raiga's own counterpart is shy and meek instead of fight-happy.

** The video game ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' revisited the Mirror Universe. Unlike other Expanded Universe entries, this Terran Empire went right back to being tyrants after liberating themselves from the Klingon Alliance. Prior to the Season 11 update, the emperor was James O'Brien, son of "Smiley" O'Brien, who attempted to alter the Bajoran Wormhole to initiate a full-scale invasion of the Prime universe. Season 11 changed this so that the empire was now ruled by the mirror universe Leeta, who fought and won their own Iconian War via weaponry from the future and now seeks to invade our world.

* The [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Disney Comics]] also dabbled in this; [[http://coa.inducks.org/story.php?c=I+TL+2355-5 in this comic,]] Paperinik ends up going into an alternate universe where Uncle Scrooge is poor, Gladstone Gander is unlucky, policemen are criminals, criminals are good, and Paperinik himself is evil.

** ''ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse'':
*** In one series of comics, it's especially disconcerting in that the Phantom Blot, a ManipulativeBastard and trademark villain, is a superhero.
*** In the Italy series ''X-Mickey'' we find Mickey traveling through portals to another dimension and meeting new characters that are special for this series. Most notable is the Goofy-lookalike werewolf named Pipwolf, but we also have Manny that looks like an albino Minnie and several other characters that are recurring throughout the series.

* Given that the ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' fandom is a breeding ground for [[AlternateUniverse Alternate Universes]], it's not surprising that one of these exists - Underfell, where the monsters were forced to [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold bury their kinder natures]] and "kill or be killed" is the law of the land. Typically, [[BigBad Flowey]] becomes the player's partner and guide, while [[AllLovingHero Papyrus]] becomes a vicious sadist, [[Adorkable Alphys]] becomes a MadScientist, Undyne and Mettaton both become significantly more vicious, Toriel becomes MyBelovedSmother and Asgore is a dictator and unrepentant child-murderer. And everything looks DarkerAndEdgier (though no-one has a goatee).

* Parodied in ''Series/{{Community}}''. When the tossing of a die to choose who picks up some pizza creates [[ForWantOfANail seven alternate universes]], one horrible one is created where [[spoiler: Pierce dies, Jeff looses an arm, Shirley becomes an alcoholic, Annie suffers a mental breakdown and Troy's larynx is destroyed]]. GenreSavvy Abed deduces that they're in the "evil" universe, makes them all [[Franchise/StarTrek fake beards]] and makes it their job to break into the true universe and wreak havoc.

* [[ComicBookTropes Comics]] do this all the time. TheDCU has its "anti-matter" Earth, wherein Ultraman, Superwoman, Johnny Quick, Power Ring, and Owlman (the Crime Syndicate of Amerika) are the evil duplicates of Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, and Batman (the Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica), and Lex Luthor was the only superhero left in the world. (A later story introduced the Justice Underground, a team of heroes led by Riddler's counterpart, the Quizmaster. And following Riddler's HeelFaceTurn, Quizmaster had a temporary FaceHeelTurn.)

** Creator/GrantMorrison's ''JLA: Earth-2'', the graphic novel that re-introduced the "anti-matter" version of the Crime Syndicate, [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed the trope]]: even the ''TheoryOfNarrativeCausality'' was reversed in the mirror universe, so the Justice League's attempt to save it was as doomed as the Syndicate's attempt to conquer TheDCU.

** Similarly, in ''ComicBook/JLAAvengers'', the League, seeing the many imperfections of the MarvelUniverse, conclude that it's the Evil Universe. Comicbook/TheAvengers, seeing statues and museums to the heroes everywhere in the DCUniverse, conclude the exact same thing (they think the DC heroes have set themselves as gods).

** A similar universe appears in ComicBook/InjusticeGodsAmongUs, where Superman became evil and totalitarian after The Joker tricked him into killing Lois Lane.

* ''{{Bionicle}}'' has two. The "Melding Universe" is a world where the Great Beings managed to fix Spherus Magna before it blew up, Toa look like Matoran (and vice versa), and the regular universe's {{Big Bad}}s (the Makuta) embraced light rather than darkness. The "Dark Mirror Universe" is a world where the Toa became [[KnightTemplar Knights Templar]] and conquered the world. The Makuta, the [[BountyHunter Dark Hunters]], and a rag-tag group of renegade Toa form the resistence.
