* ''WorldWar'' by Creator/HarryTurtledove asks "What if WorldWarTwo was interrupted by an AlienInvasion?" His other main series, {{Timeline-191}}, is based on the more conventional question, "What if the south won the American Civil War?" while his earlier novel ''Literature/TheGunsOfTheSouth'' poses, [[spoiler: "What if a racist group from South Africa in the near future travelled back in time to supply the Confederacy with AK-47s?"]]

* ''Series/GreysAnatomy''The Season 8 episode If/Then - As Meredith puts Zola to bed and falls asleep, she begins to wonder -- what if her mother had never had Alzheimer's and she'd had loving, supportive parents? The reverberations of a happy Meredith Grey change the world of Seattle Grace as we know it. What if she had never met Derek in that bar and he had never separated from Addison? What if Callie and Owen had become a couple long before she met Arizona? And what if Bailey never evolved from the meek intern she once was?

* ''CommandAndConquerRedAlert'' is based on a What If scenario after Einstein uses a Time Machine to [[HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct erase Hitler from history]]. Turns out this leads to the Soviets starting the second World War instead. It is also implied to lead up to the first game, which starts out with another What If, a meteorite spreading a strange new material named Tiberium.
* ''WorldInConflict''. In this what if, Russia invades USA during the cold war.
