* In ''Fanfic/MementoVivere'', a VideoGame/FinalFantasyX fanfiction, this is a main plot point of the story.
* A ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' SlashFic called [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9035781/1/Redo "Redo"]] explores this problem. Ed and Al, living TwentyMinutesInTheFuture from the end of the manga/''Brotherhood'', are sent back in time by a rogue alchemist to right before they traveled to Lior. They struggle with how they're now given the opportunity to save some people who died and situations they screwed up the first time, but also need to make sure everything that went ''right'' before does as well.

* The cost of salvaging anything at all of the original multiverse in ''CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' was to produce a new single universe and erase the original multiverse entirely from history. So, from a very real standpoint, ''[[PyrrhicVictory nobody]]'' [[PyrrhicVictory survived the original Crisis]] (except Superboy Prime and co., and maybe Power Girl and Psycho Pirate), and all the current heroes are temporal copies of the originals.

* The end of NeilGaiman's ''ComicBook/{{Marvel 1602}}'' sets right the circumstances that caused the temporal divergence that brought about the 'Age of Marvels' in the Elizabethan era. Thus, the timeline is overwritten, and history proceeds as necessary. The Watchers, however, step in and save the 1602 world as a pocket universe, kept in a glass globe by this version of Uatu.

* In the {{JLA-Avengers}} story arc, at one point the histories of the DC and Marvel universes were altered by the retroactive effects of a history of the two universes interacting through their respective heroes. When they realized it needed to be fixed, they first asked to see what they were saving. Barry Allen and Superman saw their deaths, Hal Jordan saw that he would become the power-mad Parallax, Hank and Janet Pym saw [[NeverLiveItDown Hank striking Janet]], etc and they realized they were deciding the fates of potentially billions of people. The heroes decided to go forward in spite of what would happen to them.
