* The "Burial at Sea" DLC for ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' starts seemingly as "What if [=BioShock=]: Infinite took place in [[VideoGame/BioShock1 Rapture]] instead of [[VideoGame/BioShockInfinite Columbia]]?". That is, until the end of the DLC, when [[spoiler:it's revealed that the "Booker" you were playing as was actually one universe's Comstock who accidentally killed another universe's Anna/Elizabeth, and had his memory wiped and moved to Rapture to repent. And that the Elizabeth may be the one from the main storyline, who has tasked her life with hunting down the rest of the remaining Comstocks. ''And'' that this Rapture is the same one from [=BioShock=] 1, and that Elizabeth's actions set in motion the events of the first game. It's quite a mind screw from what was initially supposed to be an innocent "What If?" situation.]]

* The 9th ''Manga/OnePiece'' movie use this for the basis of "Episode of Chopper". Which is a retelling Drum Island arc with a few differences in the cast (No Vivi, Franky and Robin are there (they hadn't joined yet by that point in the story), the crew already having the Thousand Sunny as their ship opposed to Merry, Wapol having a brother, etc)

* ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes'': The SecretCharacter known as Shadow Lady is [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Chun-Li]] from an AlternateUniverse where she was [[ReforgedIntoAMinion forcibly turned into a]] [[UnwillingRoboticization brainwashed cybernetic minion]] for Shadaloo. Before she was forcibly roboticized, Chun-Li routinely foiled Shadaloo's plans at every turn, and in retaliation, Shadaloo kidnapped, experimented and cyborgized her for the sake of turning her into a pawn against Interpol. When the task was completed, they turned her into a living weapon, complete with a new name and transformed her into M. Bison's [[TheDragon top operative]]. Unlike Shadow--a roboticized Charlie Nash, who escaped shortly after being transformed--Shadaloo added a RestrainingBolt to Shadow Lady's programming and internal systems so she would [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul remain fully obedient]] to Bison at all times, essentially becoming a [[DarkActionGirl Dark Action]] RobotGirl. As Shadow Lady, [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul Chun-Li's formerly cheerful personality was obliterated, and her body's physiology altered so it]] [[EmotionlessGirl experienced no emotion apart from being a killing machine]] and being an assassin for Shadaloo - in essence, she is essentially a completely different person inhabiting her body and mind, and serves as nothing but a weapon against Interpol. It's also been implied that deep down, [[AndIMustScream the old Chun-Li is still there on some level]], and is at least partially aware of what she has done. Even if her allies ever managed to revive her, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Chun-Li would have to deal with the]] [[HeelRealization guilt of being a tool for Shadaloo]], not to mention the fact that [[RealityEnsues being a brainwashed robotic minion wouldn't go away overnight]] should she become a good person again. Aside from retaining a few moves from her non-cyborgified variant, she has built-in high tech weaponry, and all of this was augmented to her robotic body, like the T-X from the ''{{Franchise/Terminator}}'' series. She shoots [[HomingProjectile homing]]/[[MissileLockOn heat-seeking missiles]] from [[BackpackCannon her back]], thrusts forward with [[ThisIsADrill a drill]], encases herself in a [[ShockAndAwe electric barrier]] (that also [[DeflectorShield deflects attacks]] and stuns opponents), miniaturized Vernier thrusters in her feet that enable her to jump much higher (and allow her to kick more rapidly) and fires a large beam ([[ArmCannon Big Bang Laser]]) from [[HandBlast her palms]]. [[spoiler:In her ending however, she manages to [[HeroicWillpower overcome Shadaloo's brainwashing,]] [[HeelFaceTurn regain her original memories as Chun-Li]], and join forces with Shadow in taking down Shadaloo. Despite this, she retains her robotic parts even after the brainwashing broke.]]
