** ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'': Wolverine and Sabertooth fought in the American Revolution, were there on D-Day (though ''Film/TheWolverine'' has him fighting in the Pacific instead, and being present for the Nagasaki bombing), and finally bumped into Stryker in the last days of the Vietnam War. And their action indirectly caused the Three Mile Island incident.

* The "Literature/TheThreeMusketeers" series was historical fiction, partly based on people who actually lived at the courts of Louis XIII and Louis XIV. Among other examples, it inserts Milady De Winter into the 1628 assassination of the Duke of Buckingham, all four musketeers into the execution of Charles I and the eventual restoration of Charles II, Athos' son Raoul into the story of Louis XIV's mistress Louise de la Valliere, and D'Artagnan into nearly every military campaign of any significance in the 17th century.

During an episode where much of the main cast was transported to the time period of [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries the original series,]] they were responsible for many off-screen events which took place during "The Trouble With Tribbles" episode. Thus, it is an example of ''[=DS9=]'' playing this to another fictional series.
** Particularly notable because the technology used to insert Forrest Gump in historical footage is exactly the one used to create this episode. The very episode was inspired by a technician showing off some quick'n'dirty insertion in an original ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}'' episode. (It helped that the [=TOS=] masters were surprisingly well preserved.)

Sisko even gets recorded in history as Gabriel Bell, a major figure in the riots, as [[YouWillBeBeethoven his presence inadvertently caused Bell to die prematurely]]. Starfleet Command, however, is not amused on finding his face in history books.

* Immortals in ''[[Series/{{Highlander}} Highlander: The Series]]'' live for centuries, so they have plenty of opportunity to mix with some pivotal events. Given their potential lifespan, if a character doesn't actively seek out an historic event, it's likely that one will just happen while they're around.
** Pompeii was the result of an Immortal being killed on sacred ground. There's a reason why all Immortals respect sacred ground.
** The title character, Duncan [=MacLeod=], being 400 years old has plenty of history to get involved in, but he goes out of his way to involve himself in events relating to Scottish nationalism.

Neither were actually responsible, though.
** Played straight in the Season 8 episode "All That Glitters". A heavily criticized landscape painting by Inspector Brackenreid proves inspirational to one of the assistants at an art exhibition: famed lanscape painter Tom Thomson, whose style is similar to the Inspector's.
** Played straight in Season 9's "Unlucky in Love", which implies that Creator/LMMontgomery based her character Literature/AnneOfGreenGables on Constable Crabtree. Promptly lampshaded in the end title card:
--> Despite the story you have just seen there is no evidence to suggest that Lucy Maud Montgomery met Constable George Crabtree or that her work was influenced by him. (He's not real).
** Regularly played with in the later season appearances of James Pendrick, who is portrayed as developing an electric car prototype (and being cheated out of his invention by Henry Ford), inventing the airplane, becoming an early silent film director (and butting heads with Thomas Edison), and building the first space rocket.

* Sophia Petrillo Like ''Film/ForrestGump'', the Cigarette Smoking Man from ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' is a case combined with UnreliableNarrator, thanks to a combination of a slight stroke, general old lady nuttiness, and a tendency to stretch the truth in her stories if she's trying to make a point. One should take her stories with a grain of salt. However, she claims to have had romantic trysts with Pablo Picasso, Sigmund Freud, and Winston Churchill, opened a pizzeria with the woman who would later become Mama Celeste, was friends with Golda Meir, and she and Sal had a flat tire at the same building as the St. Valentine's Day Massacre (although in a later episode she claimed [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial "I was at the movies that day. All day."]])
* A non-immortal or TimeTravel example in ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'' with Hugo Miller, whose brain was split in half between him and a computer many decades ago and, thus, he missed out on all those decades, spending them in a mental institution. After being reintegrated, he asks Artie if that boy Bill Gates, whom he advised, ever got his little project off the ground. He's also supposedly set Steve Jobs on a different path, as a joke.
* In the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode [[Recap/SupernaturalS09E01IThinkImGonnaLikeItHere "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here" (S09, Ep01)]], an angel who recently fell to earth says she wants to visit the Grand Canyon she last built when on earth.
* Subverted in ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'', in which what they're showing us is the real history, while the history that ''we'' know was rewritten by Henry Tudor, [[spoiler: the fake]] Queen Elizebeth I, and [[spoiler: the fake]] Prince George. [[PlayingWithATrope Played Straight]] when the reason they were able to re-write history was because of the character's actions.
** If Series Six was made, it would've shown that Baldrick accidentally killed J.F.K while fiddling around with a gun in Dallas.
*** He also caused the extinction of the dinosaurs with his underpants in Blackadder: Back And Forth.
* In ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' it was shown that The Great Fire of Rome was caused when they were sent back in time to Ancient Rome and Bobo knocked over a candle while he was stealing a cheese wheel.
* ''Series/ViudasEHijosDelRockAndRoll'': Roby, Gaby and Pipo, leaders of the "La Z Rock" radio, have met all the musicians of Argentine Rock,
''Series/TheXFiles'' has been present at all their concerts, and attended all responsible for the major events. The radio is filled of [[OrwellianRetcon photos of Roby with musicians]], and he is treated as "THE" greatest figure of Argentine rock ever.
* The ''Series/{{Castle}}'' episode "[[Recap/CastleS4E15Pandora Pandora]]" features Dr. Nelson Blakely, a practitioner of "linchpin theory": finding a small event that can start
JFK assassination, rigged the dominoes falling Oscars, sabotaged the Soviet Union's goalie to get allow for the US comeback in the 1980 Olympics, arranged a big geopolitical change. Blakely was purportedly change of venue for the officers involved in the fall Rodney King beating, and has vowed that the Buffalo Bills will never win a Super Bowl and has taken steps to make that happen.
** Lampshaded when CSM delivers a long, cynical speech that begins with "Life is like a box of chocolates..."
* ''Series/YoungIndianaJones'': Befriending T.E. Lawrence and helping him take Jerusalem, drinking with Picasso, losing his virginity to Mata Hari, inspiring the RedBaron to paint his plane red, killing {{Dracula}} himself, and hunting Al Capone is just some
of the Soviet Union ("turns out all we had to do ''less'' extreme contrivances in young Henry Jones Junior's life. If he or she's famous in the 20th century, Indy has probably met, befriended, fought, fallen in love with, killed or slept with that person.
** The book series added a bit more. For example, Indy
was outspend them"), but at some point he had a HeelRealization, faked his death, discussing the origins and started using linchpin theory to do things like reduce cholera in Africa and kick-start UsefulNotes/TheArabSpring uprisings (which [[RippedFromTheHeadlines at the time bases of the episode]] were going pretty well, though things went downhill afterward).
* Played with in ''Series/MurdochMysteries''' season 10 opener "Great Balls of Fire", in which both a firebomb hurled by the KillerOfTheWeek and a carelessly tossed cigar belonging to Constable Higgins are suggested as possible sources of the Great Toronto Fire of 1904. Neither were actually responsible, though.
** Played straight in the Season 8 episode "All That Glitters". A heavily criticized landscape painting by Inspector Brackenreid proves inspirational to one of the assistants at an art exhibition: famed lanscape painter Tom Thomson, whose style is similar to the Inspector's.
