The Mandela Effect is a worldwide phenomenon that creates alternate memories of many things including events, movies, logos, companies, sayings, phrases and much more. Our library has the largest collection of Mandela Effect examples on the internet! Here are examples 1-5:
No, Luke, I am your father – Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back
Many people vividly remember Darth Vader shocking the world in the 1980’s iconic movie, The Empire Strikes Back, when he announced he was Luke Skywalker’s father with the line ”Luke, I am your father”, but this has become one of the most discussed Mandela Effect examples…
Millions of people have repeated the phrase for decades and there’s a lot of fans that named their children ”Luke” in the following years, simply because of that line in the movie. If you rewatch the movie, you will discover that the line is actually ”No, I am your father”.
One of the more recent Mandela Effect Examples that has gained traction is the alternate memory surrounding the Flintstones. Although this has many people questioning their memories, we don’t understand why because ”Flint” is a historic stone used for tools and to start fires, so it seems strange people are confused by the name being ”Flintstones” when they claimed it never had a second ”t” in the name and the cartoon was actually called ”Flinstones”.
Life is like a box of chocolates / Life was like a box of chocolates – Forrest Gump
In the blockbuster movie, Forrest Gump, many fans remember the line said by Tom Hanks being ”Life is like a box of chocolates”, but if you re-watch the movie, the line spoken is actually ”Life was like a box of chocolates”.
It’s a very strange alternate memory, but with such a subtle terminology, we think this one is getting much more credit as a Mandela Effect example than it actually deserves.
Houston, we’ve had a problem! / Houston, we have a problem! – Apollo 13
A second Tom Hanks movie also has a lot of Mandela Effect researchers looking into a specific line in the movie is Apollo 13. Now, given all our years of research and contact with authors as well as looking into the science of physics, the human brain, mental illness, cognitive dissonance, the LHC, alternate reality, augmented reality, simulated and base reality and much more, this is the only Mandela Effect example that has really confused us where we haven’t got a single logical explanation.
This is what we call a ”flipper”. Meaning it changes and changes back.
This alternate memories started when people claimed the line from Apollo 13 was ”Houston, we have a problem” which is referring to the present, however, the actual line in the movie is ”Houston, we’ve had a problem”, which is referring to the past. That’s a bit strange, but here’s where it gets really confusing…
When we looked into this in 2016, the line in the movie as watched on video was ”Houston, WE’VE had a problem”, which concludes people are having alternate memories, but as of watching it two weeks later it was then again ”Houston, we HAVE a problem”. Shortly after, it changed again to ”Houston, WE’VE had a problem”. If you go and watch the line from the movie, as of April 12, 2020, the line is back to ”Houston, we have a problem”, basically rendering all claims of an alternate memory false. Don’t ask us for an explanation on this one, because we don’t have it…

Monopoly Man’s (Rich Uncle Pennybags’) Monocle
We’ve nearly all played the most popular board game of all time, Monopoly, but didn’t Uncle Pennybags have a monocle every time you saw him? Not anymore. The Monopoly guy doesn’t have and has never had a glass eye monocle, apparently.
Monopoly got wind of the Mandela Effect and even posted an image of Uncle Pennybags with the a monocle on their Facebook page to gain traffic and it worked.
