** The English dubbed anime occasionally make references to the real world. And at one scene, Pilaf was holding a globe resembling our Earth.

* ''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 [[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]].

* Naomi Novik's ''Literature/{{Temeraire}}'' series is set in the Napoleonic era in a world where there have always been dragons. Per this trope's close association with DespiteANail, thousands of years of history with them (the first military dragonrider was a Roman legionnaire) produced a global geopolitical situation is nearly identical to the real Napoleonic era... Right until the start of the series. By the third book, things start to get wildly different at every level.

* Used deliberately in ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'', the story's beginning is set on "Mid-World" a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] world that's hinted to be our future's, but as the story progresses many parallel universes start appearing and bleeding into one another, it is shown that many of these universes have diverged from one another at certain points, some wildly (for example in one universe, the one from ''Literature/TheStand'', humanity has been decimated by the [[ThePlague super-flu Captain Strips]]) or more subtly (one has the "Takuro Spirit" car brand and make, people drink Nozza-Cola and eat Boing-Boing Burgers). All of these is noted by the characters.

*** Given how the Americas are mentiond off-handledly, but apparently not reachable (least not anymore) along with the mentions of a group known as the "Sons Of Franklin", the American colonization happened until ''some'' event led to no longer there being contact (and may or may not be tied to the West Pole thing.)

* ''Anime/RoyalSpaceForceTheWingsOfHonneamise'' takes place in a world that resembles Earth during the beginning of the space age, but with many differences, some more noticeable than others.

* The world of ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' is virtually unknown beyond the Walls, but the story has references to the Far East and Asia, also the phrase at the beginning implies a future setting, however [[spoiler: it has been revealed that the Walls are situated on a island named Paradis which is relatively tiny compared to the larger continental landmass nearby; considering that official sources state that the area inside the walls has a radius of over 480 km, the only islands large enough to fit would be Greenland, Antarctica and Australia but the shown map doesn't resemble any of those, (in fact it does resemble an upside-down Madagascar to the west of and upside-down Africa, except that Madagascar isn't large enough, not to mention also that if was indeed a reverse map then Madagascar would be to the East)]].
