** The upcoming ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' makes the player choose which kingdom--Hoshido or Nohr--that he/she wishes to side with. The storyline will change depending on the chosen side, creating a series of "what if" scenarios.

And when you choose one side over the other, you will often be repeatedly told by other characters what would have happened if you have done something differently to avoid a worst outcome (in other words, choose the other path). You are not reminded of this so much when you TakeAThirdOption, although some bad stuff happens there anyway.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' season five finale, "The Cutie Re-Mark" is pretty much a "What If Rainbow Dash never did her Sonic Rainboom?". We the get the answer when Starlight Glimmer, vengeful over what happened at the start of the season, goes back in time and prevents Dash from doing it. What follows is a myriad of Bad Futures where previous Big Bads turn Equestria into a CrapsakeWorld because without the Rainboom, the Mane Six don't get their cutie marks at the same time, meet each other later as adults, and be around to stop them. To wit: [[spoiler: Sombra re-claims the Crystal Empire, makes slaves out of the inhabitants and wages a never-ending war on Equestria that constantly depletes the world's resources just to fight him. Queen Chrysalis and the Changlings force the ponies to flee into the Everfree where the survivors are under constant paranoia and ultimately she finds their last stronghold. Nightmare Moon banishes Celestia to the moon as she did to her and blankets the world in never-ending night (though at least rules somewhat fairly). Tirek goes about destroying Equestria, Discord turns the world into chaos torturing Celestia and Luna all the while, Film and Flam of all ponies turn Equestria into a industrial nightmare, and finally the last future see Equestria to be a barren wasteland devoid of any life ''at all''.]]

* Karzahni of ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' actually has "What If" as a ''superpower''; he can give people visions of possible past or future outcomes. He tends to use this as a psychological attack, showing "What if you didn't survive that situation?" or "What if you couldn't save that guy at that crucial moment?" It's rarely pretty... and when it ''is'' pretty, it becomes a LotusEaterMachine. One character then manages to use it against him, by daring him to show them what would happen if the Great Spirit dies. When he does so, he finds out that the answer is "the end of the universe," and that he's not nearly as important as he likes to think. This revelation causes him to go [[HeroicBSOD BSOD]].
