*''Film/LoveIsAllYouNeed2016'' takes place in a universe, where [[PersecutionFlip homosexuality is commonplace and heterosexuals are victimized and persecuted]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/SpaceDandy'' plays with this trope a lot. Each episode of the series is arguably set in a different universe as many of them end with the characters dying, becoming zombies or even micro-organisms, only for them to be perfectly fine the next episode.[[spoiler: The series also ends with Dandy rejecting the Narrator's offer of Godhood, which causes the universe to reset itself to the very first episode...though things appear to be ''slightly'' different this time round.]]
** One episode features Dandy, Meow and QT actually meeting different alternate versions of themselves, including a space trucker Dandy, a guy in a pink suit who thinks he's a robot (QT's alternate self) and a scary cyborg Meow.

Added DiffLines:

** The franchise itself is one to the ''Triangle Heart'' series, where it's the rest of the Takamachis that live a secret battle-hardened lifestyle while Nanoha is an ordinary little girl.

Added DiffLines:

** There were other AU memes on the site beyond the traditional "corners", such as "[=GAYTMND=]" (CampGay and often set to "Shut Up (and Sleep With Me)"), "[[StylisticSuck CRAPTMND]]", "[[EarRape LOUDTMND]]", and "Violin" (which involved edits of other sites to have classical music and pictures of violins pasted into them, and being perpetuated as a ForcedMeme on the front page by a user's repeated donations).


* A popular fad on Website/{{YTMND}} is to take pre-existing memes and create Alternate Universe counterparts, usually under the PTKFGS moniker ("Punch The Keys, For God's Sake!", another one of Creator/SeanConnery's lines from the famous scene in ''Film/FindingForrester'' that named the website), although even more Alternate Universe versions exist, usually as either "Yes Yes" or the elusive "Fourth Corner", where no-one can really agree on a final name for the latter.

These tended to be parallel versions exist, usually as either "Yes Yes" or of existing pages and memes: i.e. "[[Music/BoneyM Rasputin]]" instead of "Moskau", "omg, internet" instead of "lol, internet", and so on. As YTMND rendered a "watermark" in the top-left corner to open its navbar, these sites put a PTKFGS watermark in the top-right. A tertiary AU, "[=YesYes=]", claimed the bottom-right corner, while the elusive "Fourth Corner", where no-one can really agree on a final name "4th Corner" was up for the latter.debate. "Heh" and "Typing Noises" did gain some traction, but one user established lore suggesting that it was a multiverse.


* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa IF'' takes place in a "What if?" version where Naegi finds a switch to escape the school before any of the students can attempt a murder.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' has three varieties
** The first is the demon world, which mirrors the regular setting except for the fact it is populated by demons. It first showed up in a {{filler}} episode dealing with a martial arts master from the demon world breaching the seal between the two worlds in order to kidnap human girls but later was added into continuity proper when the evil wizard Babadi enslaved the demon world's strongest fighter. The main villains from ''Videogame/DragonBallOnline'' hail from the demon world and ''Videogame/DragonBallXenoverse'' implies they too want to break the seal between the two worlds.

** The third variety comes in the form of twelve separate 'universes' which come in pairs that are determined by their designated numbers adding up to thirteen. The main setting is designated universe seven and so it paired with universe six, which superficially resembles it but has seen some drastically different developments over the course of its own history.

* Apparently the setting of [[spoiler: ''Film/{{Parallels}}'']] leans heavily on this trope, with entire branches of {{The Multiverse}} to be shunted about in.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/SilverBulletNights'' is basically an alternative universe of ''Webcomic/SmokeFurAndStone''. The creator of both these comics often plays with the idea of alternative worlds and multiple versions of characters in his work.


* ''Franchise/{{Tsukipro}}'' - a fictional talent agency representing various artists, mostly boy bands. Their main releases are music singles, accompanied by audio dramas about their daily lives, stories which continue on the official twitter accounts and in the various anime adaptations. Normally, it would stop there, but not this time. This series makes good use of its UniversalAdaptorCast, and AU stories have been made turning them into {{youkai}}, military officers in space, angels and demons, [[LittleBitBeastly rabbit royals]], and more. It helps that in canon, one of the idols is a demon king. Or maybe it doesn't...

** ''VisualNovel/DanganronpaV3KillingHarmony'' takes place in an alternate universe where [[spoiler:the ''Danganronpa'' franchise is a popular series of video games and anime. So popular, in fact, that it became a reality TV show where high school students willingly sign up to take part in real killing games where they are mind-wiped and implanted with the fabricated personalities and backstories of ''Danganronpa'' characters as a form of EnforcedMethodActing. It's mentioned that world peace has been achieved and there are no wars or conflict anymore, so watching ''Danganronpa'' is now the only way for humanity to satisfy its lust for violence]].
