* '''Percival Dunwoody, Idiot Time Traveller from 1909'': Self-explanatory, really. While Percival ''tries'' to right terrible past wrongs (primarily [[HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct killing Hitler]]), he's too much of a scatterbrained fool to even come close, and mostly makes things worse through paradoxes or his own stupidity.
