The Mandela EffectList Of The Mandela Effect Examples That Will Blow Your Mind (1-5)

The Mandela Effect is an unexplained phenomenon that is taking the world by storm and the Mandela Effect examples affect everyone in some way or another.  For some, it’s a simple case of “our memory isn’t as good as we thought”, but for others, it’s solid proof we are experiencing a parallel universe’s timeline cross into our reality and it is disrupting our history.  If you’re only just hearing of the Mandela effect, we would suggest reading our Mandela Effect Overview before diving into the list of Mandela Effect examples.  Here is the list of Mandela Effect examples that will literally blow your mind…

Nelson Mandela
Nelson Mandela’s death is what started the phenomenon of The Mandela Effect.  When did Nelson Mandela die?  Many people believed Nelson Mandela died in prison in the 1980’s, but this assumption is incorrect as he got out of prison, became president of South Africa, and died in 2013.  Many were baffled because they distinctively remember his funeral in the 1980’s, rioting in cities, and news anchors covering the story.

The Mandela Effect Examples (1-5)Chick-Fil-A
The Chick-Fil-A business and logo has been thought of by millions as “Chic-Fil-A”, without the “k” in “Chick”, but despite many of us thinking it was “Chic-Fil-A”, and people having joked about the “Chic” in the name that would normally be pronounced sheek, that apparently has never been the case.  This one perplexed us so much, we even contacted Chick-Fil-A’s corporate office to ask them when they added the “k” into their logo, but they informed us that neither the logo, nor their business, has ever been called “Chic-Fil-A”.  Their business and logo has always had a “k” and been known as “Chick-Fil-A”.  You can see the conversation between us and Chick-Fil-A here.

The Mandela Effect Examples (1-5)The Berenstain Bears
This is one of the most famous Mandela Effect examples.  Many people remember “The Berenstein Bears”, but the book is, and supposedly always has been, called “The Berenstain Bears“.  Every version of the book you read now will show the title of the book as being “The BerenstAin Bears”, but millions of people are adamant it used to be “The Berestein Bears” with an “E”.  People who know and loved those books know in their hearts this isn’t right and it has upset more people than probably any other example presented here.

Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs
This is one of the freakiest Mandela Effect examples!  For most of us, we remember the evil queen in Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs going up to her mirror and saying “Mirror, mirror on the wall”, but if you re-watch any version of the movie, on any format, you will discover that the phrase many of us have said throughout our lives has never been “Mirror, mirror on the wall”.  Now the phrase in the movie is “Magic mirror on the wall”, and it supposedly always has been.

91eedbs1nll-_sl1500_Star Wars: Episode V – Empire Strikes Back 
What did Darth Vader say to Luke Skywalker during their last encounter in Empire Strikes Back?  Many remember the line from Vader as “Luke, I am your father”, but the line has always been “No, I am your father”.  Many are baffled by this, even so much so that they have uploaded multiple versions of the footage onto Youtube, everything from the Blu-ray release all the way to the 1990 unedited VHS footage, but all say “No, I am your father”.  One Youtuber even commented on a video relating to the Star Wars Mandela Effect saying: “One of my old co workers was such a star wars fan that he named his son Luke, specifically so he could say, Luke I am your father, when disciplining his child.  We had an entire funny conversation about it one day at work.  That has not changed in my memory, but somehow the movie has…why?”

The Mandela Effect Examples – 46-50Here are two images which were submitted from a member of our community from an older Star wars book…  In this book, they seem to make sure they can’t be wrong by adding both people’s alternate memory and the current reality.  Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments below.

The Mandela Effect Examples

  • StuckInCali2Long

    I have heard that with the Star Wars one there was a producers cut and an editors cut. I’m not sure about it. It’s just what I was told from people that were older than me back then.
    What year did it seem the Chic Fil A logo changed?

    • Hanna Hunter

      Sometime in my freshman year, 2012, I had texted my friend that I got “Chic-fil-A” for dinner. I seriously looked it up to see how it was spelled, just so my friend didn’t correct me. So sometime between them and now i guess.

      • J America

        It’s just so insane. The Chick-Fil-A logo is the one that baffled me the most.

  • Jay Wheeler

    According to Chick-Fil-A, their logo and company name has always contained a “K”…

  • honeyc

    we think mandela died because it was on our news, including clips of crying people lining the street, not a parallel universe, maybe he died and morgan freeman became nelson mandela. anyway don’t tell me what i saw. i dont live in another universe, and neither do the others with the same memory

  • J America

    I find it rather strange that Chick-Fil-A own “” and they have re-routed it to their current website. Very confusing.

    • Ayuvelo

      Every big website does this in case you mistype.

  • Warren Browning

    Does anyone else remember the Susan B Anthony dollar coin being gold, not silver?

    • Gary Charlton

      Yes, I have 800 gold Susan B. Anthony coins. I have seen silver ones too though.

      • Warren Browning

        Thank you. One of my co workers is a coin collector. He said he’d never seen a gold SBA.

  • Gary Charlton

    When we say ” a lot is going on”,
    I always remember spelling it as
    ” allot is going on”. I am a pretty good at spelling and have a good memory so I was some what confused when I saw commenters correcting other commenters on the the correct spelling of a lot.

    • Leah

      You said “serial” instead of “cereal”, and “some what” instead if “somewhat”… it has always been “alot”.

  • Gary Charlton

    I saw on a youtube video that Fruit Loops serial is called Froot Loops.
    I know that when I was a kid they were Fruit not Froot.

  • Michael Craig

    Smoke detector manufacturer was Kiddie is now Kidde.

    • Bodivine.official

      Holy crap, you are so right

      • Michael Craig

        My dad sold fire equipment and it was definitely Kiddie.

  • This is Here Say. It’s not allowed in court. Tell a Lie often enough and it becomes the truth.

  • John Hall

    What about Reba McIntyre… I have been to her concert when she toured with Kenny Rogers. I never heard of her before (this was in 1998, and she had not really been popular here in Australia). So I went on line and I studied up EVERYTHING I could about her. And I most of all I wanted to learn HOW TO SPELL HER NAME… It WAS McIntyre. But now it seems to have always been McEntire…. What????? This is MADNESS… Crazy!?!

  • Dario Dragičević

    Grump bump!

  • Ayuvelo

    The one with Mirror Mirror: In the german version it really says “Spieglein, Spieglein” which translates to “Mirror Mirror”. So as there’s an explanation to everything this one could be that it’s just an error in back-translating.

    • J America

      I remember the English version being mirror, mirror as well. Strange.

      • Ayuvelo

        Yeah that’s the thing: Maybe you REALLY heard it as “mirror, mirror” because it’s so usual in translations that maybe it’s been adopted into the english version in some books / movies but ofc not into the original one.

  • x-pedda Senpai

    I tried thought Most people get The Star Wars quote wrong because of memetic mutation

  • Vitinho Carvalhinho

    This examples are freakin stupid!
    I mean that this examples are only mistakes made by people. What i mean is that this people, by mistake, said to other people that they saw it like that, and when people actually see it is actually different.
    So what i mean is that this are rumors that pass through people mouths and in the end its just another lie.
    By the way Nelson Mandela never died in prison, as you believe, he did his sentence and he got out.
