* ForScience: Apart from the Gernsback parallel which plays this straight (if mostly benevolently), there's an interesting variation with the Cabal.

** The Condor Group from Merlin are Nazi mages who fled to Argentina after UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and formed an alliance with the Peróns. They've recently formed a low-level alliance with Reich-5's Armanen Order.

* DeathWorld: Several parallels qualify, even appart from the aforementionned Gotha and Lucifer parallels, many of them colloquially called [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Hell Worlds]]. The causes run the gamut from [[DepopulationBomb incredibly deadly]] [[ThePlague epidemics]] to [[GreenAesop man-made ecological meltdown]] to [[NukeEm nuclear war]] to [[AlienInvasion Alien]] [[{{Ultraterrestrials}} (or maybe not)]] [[AlienInvasion Invasion]], but probably the most worrisome (i.e. most likely to be completely and irreversibly quarantined) are the (thankfully few) parallels that seem to exist in a CosmicHorrorStory universe. One of these parallels may have the Things back-tracing the parachronic trail from a Homeline Scout team.

* AlienSpaceBats: Centrum and Homeline do a ''LOT'' of this, as often as not as a part of their ongoing conflict. More worryingly, it seems that they may not be the only ones who do this, as the no less than 18 Gothas (parallels which all suffered a ZombieApocalypse with a common source) seem to point to [[MysticalPlague a common origin]].

Added DiffLines:

* LizardFolk: The chief inhabitants of the United States of Lizardia evolved from [[UsefulNotes/StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs troodons]] -- though, rather bizarrely, [[InSpiteOfANail their recent history still closely parallels Homeline's]].

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Centrum's default moral status.

to:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Centrum's default moral status. They're ruthless, hegemonic cultural imperialists, but they're trying to save each parallel they're operating in from undergoing their own versions of the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Last War]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheWorldAsMyth: There are more than a few parallels based on explicitly fictional settings, called "myth parallels."

Added DiffLines:

*** Infinity has an operation going on in the South Africa of Nergal, where they pose as gods and wizards who rule over the local Zulus and occasionally lead them in SlaveLiberation raids against the other nations of Nergal. This is presented as [[TheExtremistWasRight a good thing]], as the other nations of Nergal all practice HumanSacrifice and are possibly leading the world to ruin through their magic.

Something that looks like TimeTravel combined with [[AlternateReality alternative world]] hopping. '''GURPS: Infinite Worlds''' is the default TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} 4th edition setting, loosely inspired by Creator/HBeamPiper's "Paratime" novels. The successor to TabletopGame/GURPSAlternateEarths and the Third Edition sourcebook ''GURPS Time Travel''.
