** In the 1st Era, the Maruhkati Selectives, an extremist sect of the already extremist [[FantasticRacism anti-elf]] Alessian Order, carried out a ritual in attempt to [[SplitPersonality purge Akatosh of the elven aspects]] of the mythological basis that Akatosh was based on, the [[OurElvesAreBetter Aldmeri]] [[NobleBirdOfPrey golden eagle god]], Auri-El. This proceeded to break time and reality for a period of a 1008 years. Bizarre and impossible events occurred during this time; people gave birth to their own parents, some sources mention wars and major events which never happened according to other sources, the sun changed color depending on the witness, and the gods either walked among the mortals or they didn't. How could they measure that period of time? They used the phases of [[WeirdMoon Nirn's moons]], said to be [[GodIsDead Lorkhan's decaying "flesh divinity"]], to measure time as they were not affected by the event. Even the [[TomeOfEldritchLore Elder Scrolls]] themselves cannot rationalize the conflicting events of the Middle Dawn. When the Scrolls are attuned to that time period, their glyphs are said to simply disappear.

* On ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', the team creates one of these in the second season finale by breaking the first rule of time travel -- NeverTheSelvesShallMeet -- which has caused various people and things to be randomly displaced throughout time and space. The third season focuses on them tracking down these "anachronisms" and taking them back where they came from.

* ''Literature/TheLatheOfHeaven'' by Creator/UrsulaKLeguin ends with something like this happening due to (ab)use of RealityWarper powers. George Orr changes and overwrites reality many times, [[spoiler but finally reality is warped past a breaking point and the Earth becomes a mashup of all previous "versions" or timelines.]]

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'': Happen at a few major events in the backstory when the [[DragonsAreDivine draconic]] God of Time, [[IHaveManyNames known by many names]] but most prominently as Akatosh, is "[[HijackingCthulhu tampered with]]" so to speak. They typically involve mortals attempting to use something of divine substance and cross over with RealityIsOutToLunch.

They typically involve mortals attempting to use something of divine substance and cross over with RealityIsOutToLunch. It happens so often that there's even an in-universe term for it: a "Dragon Break."


Added DiffLines:

** Dragon Breaks even appear in several popular GameMods. The ''Forgotten City'' mod uses a Dragon Break caused by a StableTimeLoop as part of the story, in which the player travels through the time loop to find out who is responsible for the loop and what events they put into motion to cause the disaster. In the ''VIGILANT'' mod, the player ends up experiencing a Dragon Break where they witness an alternate history where [[spoiler: Molag Bal used a false version of the Abadal-a (Amulet of Kings) stone to corrupt the Alessian Empire so that all the violence associated with their purging of elves would empower Bal himself]], as well as the origin of [[spoiler: Molag Bal in the form of a bard who fell in love with the woman who would became the first vampire, and was transformed into Bal when he raped her]], ''and'' [[spoiler: Jyggalag, the Daedric Prince of Order, starting his Greymarch on Molag Bal's realm of Coldharbour and ultimately killing him]]. Since all of this is happening during a Dragon Break, it is entirely possible that [[MindScrew all of this did happen at some point]] and is totally true, up until another Dragon Break rewrote it all due to the player being a walking embodiment of ScrewDestiny.

** The Numidium, a [[HumongousMecha giant brass golem]] built by [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent the Dwemer]] and powered by the Heart of Lorkhan, the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]], was essentially their refutation of the gods made material. Because of this, it frequently caused these when activated, such as the temporal toxic waste dump in Elsweyr where Tiber Septim's mages tried to figure it out after the Dunmer Tribunal gave it to him as a tribute, or the Warp In The West, where all the endings in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' essentially [[MergingTheBranches happened at once]] (though none to the [[BroadStrokes same extent]] they would have individually) and the temporal paradox was so straining on reality that a nuclear-like explosion occurred.

* In DC's short-lived [[TheNineties Nineties]] series ''Chronos,'' apparently a pretty ugly one happens at some point in the distant future, and then gets resolved. When the time-traveling hero, Walker Gabriel, wants to lay low for a while and avoid pursuit by other time travelers, he goes to this era. He's shown having a conversation at a bar, and in every panel, the person he's having the conversation with gets replaced with someone else as history is constantly shifting. Walker (who has RippleEffectProofMemory as one of his powers) just rolls with it and keeps the conversation moving.

''ComicBook/AstroCity'' has this as part of the BackStory of one of the early stories. A man has been having recurring dreams about a woman he's never met, but apparently knows everything about, and it's slowly driving him insane. One night, he learns what happened; a jilted supervillain built a time machine, and used it to challenge the god of time, and their conflict tore the original timeline to shreds. A number of superheroes patched the timeline together as best they could, and one of the things that vanished in the cracks was the woman, his wife (her grandparents never met because they were forced to put Air Ace's battle with the Barnstormers a day early).
