* ''WelcomeToNightVale'' is set in a FantasyKitchenSink and ConspiracyKitchenSink with absolutely no {{Masquerade}}, and has apparently always been this way, even going back to the Stone Age. Despite this, it appears to be basically the same as our world with regard to certain details; for example, most real-world organizations also exist in the Night Vale universe.

* The 2003 ''Fullmetal Alchemist'' anime's setting is explicitly a parallel universe to the real world, with a specified point of divergence, meaning it falls under AlienSpaceBats. The ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' manga, by contrast, falls under this trope: the proliferation of FantasyCounterpartCulture nations implies a great similarity to the real world, but no actual connection is ever made between the two.

* One could assume all the AlternateHistory in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''' derives from [[AlienInvasion gems attempting to colonize Earth]], which even includes altered landmasses from the early stages of HostileTerraforming. However, maps also show a big piece of real life northwestern Africa is instead located in South America. So apparently Earth was somewhat different by the Mesozoic period, tens of millions of years before gems arrived.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. When the series started it appeared to be about the adventures of a half human kid and his alien family in a fictional city somewhere in the US of A but otherwise everything is normal. It quickly becomes apparent this is a full on AlternateHistory as the series progresses.[[spoiler: The Gems have been on earth for AT LEAST 5000 years, there are Gem structures dotted around the globe, the geography of the planet is drastically altered from our own, some areas have been partially terraformed into areas to grow new Gems among many others. And that's not including the more human changes such as Beach City being located in a fictional US state, a number of other states and cities having different names. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Oh and the Canadian Flag is Green and White.]]]] And this isn't even a complete list.

** ''A World of Difference'' is based on the idea of Mars being replaced by a habitable Earth sized-planet. Earth is however almost identical to our timeline, despite the fact that "Minerva" is the brightest object in the night sky, which you would think would have an effect on mythology and astronomy. The only noticeable difference is quite late - the assassination of Mikhail Gorbachev meant TheGreatPoliticsMessUp was avoided and a US-Soviet confrontation and war scare over Lebanon leads to both sides sending separate manned missions to Minerva in 1990.

* ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' takes place in a world whose history is based on the fiction of our reality, even in ancient times. For example, UsefulNotes/TheTrojanWar is not only historical fact, but Britain was also settled by survivors of the Trojan War. The history of this Earth also includes such things as [[CthulhuMythos Cthulhu and the other Elder Gods]] fighting a celestial war with the divine beings of the Christian theology at some point in prehistory, the [[Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian Hyperborian Age]] occured just before conventional history begins, and instead of Elizabeth I ruling England, Henry the Eighth had a half [[TheFairFolk faerie daughter named Glorianna]].
