** Another in-universe example with The End, the Cobra Unit's [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal centenarian sniper]], who multiple characters call the father of modern sniping. [[spoiler:In another sense, his remains would later provide the basis for [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain Code Talker's parasite research]].]]

* In ''Tag And Bink Are Dead'', the title characters are inept padawans turned rebels who are responsible for several things in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' series, such as helping a young Anakin Skywalker romance Padme.
** Tag and Bink have actually had a number of comics. Somehow they find themselves involved in almost every major event of the movies, and any gaffes or plot holes from the series are usually credited to the pair.

** Why is the Colosseum partially collapsed? Guess. Apparently, most of the destruction done to landmarks from ancient history is Obelix's fault (What's ''really'' impressive about this one is that Obelix collapsed part of the Colosseum 120 years before it was even ''built'').

** Originally he was there, but due to ComicBookTime Doctor Doom (as the ''bandaged man'') was part of the Red Skull's / Adolf Hitler's secret organization. Due to the sliding timescale, it got retconned as him travelling to the past in order to learn secret Nazi secrets.

* Pretty much the modus operandi of ''WesternAnimation/HectorHeathcote'', which showed how the titular hero witnessed and took part in all the events of the American Revolution (and beyond), from the signing of the Declaration of Independence to the Louisiana Purchase.

''ComicBook/TrollhuntersTheSecretHistoryOfTrollkind'' even reveals that the pilgriming trolls eventually met Lewis and Clarke.

* The {{Trope Maker|s}}, ''Film/{{Zelig}}''. While he doesn't actually discover anything, the [[OlderThanTheyThink earlier]] and influential Creator/WoodyAllen film is a {{mockumentary}} detailing the title character's celebrity and includes old photos of him posed with famous people as well as interviews from real academics about him. The movie does a good job of justifying why its audience would never have heard of Zelig by treating him as [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis one of many fads]] of the 1920s and 1930s, forgotten when the public discovered something new of interest.

* The [[spoiler:fictional]] Czech genius Jára Cimrman has been involved in just as many historical events as Forrest Gump; for instance, in the movie ''Jára Cimrman lying, sleeping'', his [[{{Mockumentary}} biography]], he - among other things - aids Eiffel with the design of his tower, advises Anton Chekhov to write Three Sisters rather than two, and inspires Marconi to invent a wireless telegraph after accidentally breaking down his telegraph poles. Oh yes, and he also invented the light bulb, dynamite, etc. (but arrived at the patent office a minute after Edison and Nobel, respectively).
