* ''Roleplay/{{Glowfic}}'' likes this trope - characters [[DimensionalTraveler accidentally fall/teleport into]] another world and then arrange travel between them, find new worlds, meet their {{Alternate|Self}} Selves, [[WrongContextMagic trade]] [[TechnologyUplift resources]], and generally attempt to arrange to be [[StoryBreakerPower super powerful]] while [[LivingForeverIsAwesome improving]] [[SocietyOfImmortals all people's]] [[{{Terraform}} lives]] in all applicable worlds.

* The ''FanFic/BloomingMoonChronicles'', as its alternate name, ''The 99 Worlds Saga'', suggests, features many different alternate worlds revolving around a single core world (the world as depicted in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''). The further away a world is from the core, the greater the differences between that world and the TV show.



* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': In the original series, [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Third Impact]] created thousands of alternate universes. The "Thousand Shinji" timeline is part of a multiverse which includes the timelines of ''Fanfic/ShinjiAndWarhammer40K'', ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'', ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'' and ''Fanfic/NobodyDies''.
* ''Fanfic/WeissReacts'' is set in this, along with ''Fanfic/LucinaReacts''. The other verses are accessible by the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Outrealm Gate]] and Blake's [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Lagann]].
* ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' takes place in or mentions at least six different universes, and Jeft refers to existence as the Infiniverse.

* ''Blog/ThePredespairKids'' touches on this concept from time to time, as the story itself gradually moved into an AlternateUniverse for ''VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}}'', especially after [[spoiler: Mukuro's HeelFaceTurn and Mikan's [[FakeDefector false betrayal]]]]. Besides that, the anons sometimes bring up events or ideas that have yet to, didn't, or couldn't occur as a result of the changes, and are thus treated like alternate universes and timelines.
** ''Blog/AskTheNewHopesPeak'' is both a [[ContinuationFic continuation]] of ''Anime/Danganronpa3'' and takes place in an AlternateUniverse with many of the same OriginalCharacter original characters that first appeared on ''The Predespair Kids.'' In fact, the two are said to be [[AlternateTimeline alternate timelines]] that split off from one-another.

* It was thought that the different ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' verses all took place on separate worlds (the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Akaneia]] and [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Jugdral]] games and ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Gaiden]]'' aside), until ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' came along and introduced the concept of the Outrealm Gates linking different worlds together. In fact, it's also implied (particularly in ''Awakening''[='s=] "The Future Past" DLC) that [[spoiler:the TimeTravel present in ''Awakening''[='s=] main plot isn't really so much time traveling as much as it is dimension hopping]], further implying that ''every single playthrough'' of each game is equally canon.

* Scientists have speculated for long about the possible existence of other universes, and even have classified the types of them that could exist. Two examples of that classification are the ones of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiverse#Max_Tegmark.27s_four_levels Max Tegmark]][[note]]For people too lazy to follow the link, they are: Level I -regions of our own universe (''very'', ''very'', ''[[RuleOfThree very]]'' far) beyond the observable Universe, that thus follow the same physical laws than our patch of the Cosmos-, Level II (universes product of variants of the inflationary theory as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eternal_inflation eternal inflation]], where stuff as physical constants, number of dimensions, etc. vary), Level III (result of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Many-worlds_interpretation many-worlds interpretation]] of quantum mechanics) and Level IV ([[EldritchLocation Universes whose very fabric]] [[AlienGeometries is totally different of ours]])[[/note]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiverse#Brian_Greene.27s_nine_types Brian Greene]][[note]]They include Tegmark's types plus others expected to exist in string theory, the possibilities of simulated realities, etc.[[/note]]. Note in any case that the hypothesis of the multiverse, besides some [[http://arxiv.org/abs/1510.00126 claims]], cannot be falsified (tested to see if it's real or not), this explaining why a significant number of scientists consider the multiverse hypothesis little more than pseudoscience. However the first level of both classifications is usually favored, as data from space missions that have studied the cosmic microwave background as ''WMAP'' or ''Planck'' seem to favor an infinite Universe, or at the very least one mind-bogglingly big.

* According to WordOfGod, there are at least three timelines in [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda The Legend of Zelda series]], starting in VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime. The Adult Timeline has [[TheHero Link]] defeating [[BigBad Ganondorf]] and returning to the past. The Child Timeline begins when Link completes this trip, allowing him to prevent Ganondorf from coming to power. The Fallen Hero timeline was created by an alternate version of Link [[TheBadGuyWins losing to Ganondorf.]] VideoGame/HyruleWarriors features a ''fourth'' timeline, where [[BigBad Cia]] opens portals to the other timelines.

*** Earth-14 shows up in the ''ComicBook/SupermanRebirth'' story "Multiplicity", where it's home to the Justice League of Assassins. From what's shown, it looks to be an AfterTheEnd ''Film/MadMax''-style world.

* The TV movie ''WesternAnimation/TurtlesForever'' establishes that every single version of the ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' (i.e. every single comic, TV, and film series) all exist simultaneously as separate universes in a multiverse. [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 The Shredder]] [[GoMadFromTheRevelation gets rather pissed]] when he discovers that there are teams of Turtles in each one.
** The Battle Nexus fighting tournament draws in combatants from all over a multiverse that appears to be a sort of different multiverse concept. ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo's world is one of them.
