* "The Bison Riders" by Brad Linaweaver depicts an alternate history where the Aztecs survived and started fighting the North American plains Indians. It was first published in ''Tales From the Great Turtle'', a collection of short stories with a native theme (compiled by PiersAnthony).

* In ''TabletopGame/GURPSAlternateEarths'', one of the alternate realities was Ezcalli, a world dominated by the Tenocha Empire (a heavy updating of the Aztec Empire, set in 1840). In ''Alternate Earths II'', the 15th century Midgard setting included human-sacrificing Mixtecs.[[labelnote:*]]Naturally since this is GURPS, [[ShownTheirWork the writers' work is shown]]. In both cases the American peoples are "saved" by contact occuring earlier than in our world. Midgard has the Vikings roll over most of Europe thanks to Greek fire; Norse, Basque and Muslim explorers reach the Americas in the 10th-12th centuries with less technological disparity and [[KnightsTemplar without a conquistador's mindset]]. In Tenochca a Carthagenian fleet is blown to Cuba in 508 BC; this gives the Americans horses, iron and a head start in developing immunity to European diseases. The Old World gets corn and potatoes, both of which prevent Rome from maintaining its authority through Egyptian grain. The Roman Empire ends with Nero, and the bulk of Europe remains a patchwork of warring states until the Mongols take over in the 1200s. How the Aztecs still come to power despite a divergence point 1800 years before their emergence is {{lampshaded}} in a sidebar.[[/labelnote]]

* In Creator/SergeyLukyanenko's ''Literature/SeekersOfTheSky'' duology, the Aztec Empire is briefly mentioned to be still around, occasionally, clashing with [[TheEmpire the State]]'s American colonies. It's possible that, [[AlternateHistory without iron]], Europeans were unable to crush the Aztecs.

* In ''Literature/PastwatchTheRedemptionOfChristopherColumbus'', by Creator/OrsonScottCard, the Tlaxcala apparently took over the world in a previous iteration of the world's history. According to the book, this was party due to them being more willing to adopt European technology and warfare than their Aztec enemies (whom they have wiped out by the time they first encountered Europeans), and the other reason is that Columbus led another Crusade instead of going to the Americas, resulting in Europe being in no shape to resist an invasion from overseas. The people of that timeline [[spoiler:apparently considered it such a catastrophe in the long run, they changed history (and prevented themselves from ever existing) to avoid it]]. In the end, [[spoiler:the second iteration of time travelers make the Zapotecs and Caribs found a more peaceful empire that unifies with the Old World.]]

* In the Steampunk fantasy setting ''Castle Falkenstein'' the Mayans got magical advance notice of the coming of the Spanish, enabling them to preserve a fair degree of autonomy as a Spanish ally and protectorate. The Incas used powerful magic and alien supertechnology to annihilate would-be conquerors.
