* The film ''Film/ThePresidentsBarber'' has Seul Han-mo (played by so-called "Korean Tom Hanks" Creator/SongKangho''), a simple barber who is caught up in an espionage plot and is hired to be the official barber of President Park Chung-hee. While cutting his hair Han-mo inadvertently sends Park into a rant about intellectuals. He was also present at Park's state visit to America.

-->'''Spike''': If every vampire who said he was at the Crucifixion was actually there, it would've been like Woodstock. I was actually at Woodstock; that was a weird gig. I fed off a flower person and spent the next six hours watching my hand move.

** ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2'' has this both in and out of universe. For instance, the Afghanistan levels sees Mason saving a contingent of Mujaheddin from a Soviet assault, along with his friend Woods and a Chinese agent working with them, thus inadvertently saving the life of one Mullah Rahman, a real life figure who went on to become a notorious commander in the Taliban. When they're betrayed and nearly killed, Mason [[spoiler: and Reznov, maybe]] saves their lives. The Chinese agent is Tian Zhao, who later becomes the head of the Strategic Defense Coalition and a minor antagonist.

* Although the write-ups usually try to hint rather than state things outright (it's more fun that way), several Wiki/{{SCP|Foundation}}s are implied to have been involved with or caused various historical events, including what we thought was the atomic bomb.

* ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'': Common, especially after season 1.
** Sara seduces the queen of France and later becomes the central target of the Salem Witch Trials for "corrupting" the local girls. She also turns out to be Lancelot of the King Arthur mythos.
** Rory becomes friends with George Washington, resulting in there being a statue of him in DC during the present day.
** Ray leaves footprints behind in the Jurassic period (though paleontologists assume it is a hoax) and becomes Sir Galahad of the King Arthur mythos after the original one dies.
** During the Apollo 13 incident, Stein distracts the entire control room at a crucial moment by singing the Banana Boat song.
** Star Girl went back in time to found Camelot as Merlin.

* An episode of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' takes a slightly different track. 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.)

** When Data went back in time in the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Time's Arrow," he set in motion a series of events that would inspire Creator/JackLondon to travel to Alaska and become an author.

* According to the ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'' prequel, ''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}'', the Minions have been around for millenia, helping out tyrants, would-be world conquerors, and other "bad guys" since the dawn of human history (and before that, when they tag along with a ''TyrannosaurusRex''. They're seen building the Great Pyramids and fighting with Napoleon in his Russian campaign; given how badly the latter went in RealLife, one can assume the Minions were [[SurroundedByIdiots even more incompetent]] before they met Gru.

* The Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, France has two pillars on its balcony missing, one of its gargoyles broken off, and the doorknob smashed off one of its doors. According to the climax of ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', Quasimodo broke off those two pillars which Frollo chained him to, to save Esmeralda from being burned at the stake. During the final battle Frollo smashes off the doorknob on one of the cathedral doors to enter the cathedral, and the damaged gargoyle was the one that dispatched Frollo in the end.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MrPeabodyAndSherman'', not only have the titular characters visited virtually every major historical event, but Mr. Peabody is shown to have invented many of the most popular things we have today including but not limited to planking, the fist bump (aka the brofist), the backwards ollie, and Zumba.

Supertrope to HistoricalRapSheet. Almost always the source of a HistoricalInJoke. See SeeminglyProfoundFool, MistakenForSpecialGuest. When done poorly or overbearingly, can be a sign of a CanonSue. Contrast BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy where a real historical figure is given fictional adventures. Can often cross over with NoodleIncident.
