* ''DirkGentlysHolisticDetectiveAgency'' has a perfectly lampshaded use of the trope. Early in the book, it turns out that in bringing the coelacanth from prehistory to the early 20th century to be rediscovered, the dodo went extinct, and that was the end of a short chain of similar changes. At the end of the book, after [[spoiler: the main characters go back to the dawn of life on earth]], Dirk finds out that [[spoiler:his secretary was still working for him, and a cat that he'd spent the last eleven years searching for had never gotten lost in the first place]].

* Season 4 of ''{{Series/Eureka}}'': Despite removing one of the town's founders from the timeline in 1947, the biggest changes that occur in the resulting future are that a few people have different jobs, Henry's married, and Jo's not dating Zane anymore.

* Downplayed in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episodes "The Cutie Re-Mark", [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E25TheCutieRemarkPart1 Part 1]] and [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E26TheCutieRemarkPart2 Part 2]]. Starlight Glimmer travels back in time and prevents Rainbow Dash from performing her first sonic rainboom, which prevents the main six from becoming friends--and allows several villains to conquer Equestria, since the main six were the ones to defeat those villains in the first place. That makes sense. Where it gets weird is when changes in ''how'' Starlight prevented that first sonic rainboom somehow result a completely different villain triumphing each time, and wildly different alternate timelines as a result. So when Starlight casts a freezing spell on young Rainbow Dash, that causes a timeline where Equestria is in a drawn-out war with King Sombra and the Crystal Empire. But when Starlight talks Rainbow out of holding the race in the first place, that creates a timeline where changelings have overrun Equestria. And so on.

** In another episode, Timmy went back to help his Dad win the trophy he accidentally melted. He comes back to find that the Internet is called Timmy and his name is Internet. Of course, he meets a younger Bill Gates who suggested it.
** Possibly something of a GeniusBonus, since Tim Burners-Lee, (who invented the World Wide Web[[note]]''Not'' the Internet, that's merely the result of computer networks growing large enough to cover the Earth. Burners-Lee himself credits the creation of the Internet to Vint Cerf and Bob Khan who developed IP protocols.[[/note]] by way of being in charge of the team who developed HTML protocols) originally planned on calling his invention [[FunWithAcronyms The Infomation Mine]], before realizing the acronym was "un peu egoiste".

** It's probably not happening earlier. The castle is 'outside of time', and therefore the mirrors can likely show whatever portion of the timeline they feel is significant.
*** Nobody actually says they can, though, so the default implication is that they're showing what Tyler would be doing right now in that other timeline.
*** Possibly a WMG, but since HE was the baseline human in the main timeline, the [[spoiler: aliens may have targeted someone else, possibly earlier, leading to mass infection with their virus.]]

* In one issue of ''ComicBook/PS238'', Tyler is shown glimpses of alternate timelines in which he was born with different superpowers. In most, the visible changes make sense as consequences of that Tyler's powers, but there's one where everybody is in the middle of a crisis that [[{{Foreshadowing}} starts up ten issues later in the main storyline]], and there's no obvious reason why it should happen sooner in the other timeline just because Tyler has gravity-manipulating powers.
