* 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".

* In ''{{Primeval}}'', leaving a couple of Future Predators in the past somehow changes Claudia Brown into Jenny Lewis, gives the team a new HQ, and alters Connor's ''dress sense''.

Prune natter: this is not the place for speculating beyond what's shown in the story.
** 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.]]

Moving all PS 238 examples in Webcomics to Comic Books.
to:
* 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. ** It's probably not happening earlier.

* Many issues of Marvel's ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' fall into this trap, especially "What If Captain America had formed the Avengers?", which despite being the direct sequel to a much more coherent issue, asks you to make a lot of leaps in logic to make sense of it all. "What If the Hulk killed Wolverine" where the death of Wolverine creates a cosmic imbalance favoring chaos and thus the super villain the Adversary is free to imprison Roma and go on to kill many other X-Men, something he never did even he fought them in the mainstream continuity. In "What If Professor X became the Juggernaut" the Fantastic Four decide to randomly attack Xavier and the X-Men after the latter trashed the Sentinels that first attacked them, handwaving that Reed Richards was friends with Bolvier Trask, the maker of the Sentinels, resulting in them all losing their powers due to a device that Xavier makes. In "What if The Marvel Super Heroes had Lost Atlantis Attacks," Set contaminates the world's water supply turning nearly everyone into serpent people, except for about eight random superheroes and villains. No reason is given why these particular eight never drank the water, and why other didn't, other than for the purposes of the story.
