* The ''[[ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]]'' comic book has Mobius Prime, which all other parallel worlds (called Zones) are based off. Interestingly, despite the franchise starting with video games, Mobius Prime is the comic's Zone and not the one of the games.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueCrisisOnTwoEarths'' has [[StrawNihilist Owlman]], who wants to [[EarthShatteringKaboom use]] [[SwordOfDamocles the QED]] on Earth Prime, thus wiping out all life. His main goal is to make the only choice that matters (in his own twisted mind), as there won't be an alternate version of him making the opposite choice (his problem with the multiverse).

[[AC:TabletopGames]]
* In ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', the plane Dominaria is the Nexus of the Multiverse, situated at the center of the Multiverse. Events on Dominaria reverberate throughout the Multiverse; most notably during the Time Spiral arc where its imminent destruction would have destroyed the rest of the Multiverse with it, and even fixing it turned ''all'' [[DimensionalTraveller planeswalkers]] from PhysicalGods into merely gifted mages. Unusually for this trope, it's not Earth at all, but was a StandardFantasySetting until the plot turned it [[AfterTheEnd post apocalyptic]]. Nor was it always the Nexus; there are planes, such as Equilor, which are older than Dominaria.

* Creator/{{Stephen King}}'s ''Literature/{{Dark Tower}}'' books establish there are two - one where most of the action takes place, in which the Tower manifests as an actual tower; and the other, Keystone Earth, is explicitly our world, in which Stephen King is writing the adventures of the characters in the other universe. Should the Tower in either of these worlds be destroyed, all reality will topple.

* As of ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', the Creator/DCComics multiverse hinges on "New Earth" - not just a specific universe, but a specific planet in that universe (note that "Earth Prime" refers to another universe altogether that's like ours, where superheroes don't exist outside of comics). This becomes a plot point shortly afterwards in the ''ComicBook/SinestroCorpsWar'', where Sinestro wants to conquer Earth for this very reason.

The {{Multiverse}} is a weird thing. Depending on the genre of the work, it can mean a dozen different things. But most sci-fi has a pretty clear definition of what a "Multiverse" is. For every decision someone makes, the universe diverges into several parallel dimensions, one for every possible choice. As such, there are a nearly infinite number of universes where every conceivable version of you (or the lack thereof) exists.

** Interestingly, DC's comic multiverse has generally not run on the constant temporal divergence model; ''Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' established that the universes of the pre-Crisis multiverse diverged at the Big Bang, making ''that'' the point to attack, while ''52'' established that the new multiverse began as 52 identical Earths that got cosmologically edited.

* The ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' chapter "Applejack's Dream" establishes the existence of a "Heart World" from which the Pony POV Series world and all other AlternateTimelines diverged from and which anyone still connected to are effected by, implied to be the main series timeline. However, in an interesting twist, it is possible for a world to "break off" and continue on its own without any connection to the Heart World. The plot of that chapter involved preparing for the possibility that would happen so as to [[spoiler:prevent Applejack from going insane and turning into Nightmare Mirror in the even that it did.]] [[spoiler:This later bites Nightmare Eclipse in the flank when her plan has basically made her the Heart World Nightmare Eclipse, and tied all her other selves to her -- in other words, defeating her defeats ''all'' versions of her.]]
