* ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple'': Like ''Portal'', certain purple-tinted shields will prevent you from taking puzzle objects outside the bounds of the puzzle (or in specific areas within some puzzles). [[spoiler:To get some of the star sigils, figuring out how to get some puzzle objects outside the bounds of the puzzle become critical, and requires finding creative solutions]].

* TheCompanyNovels by Kage Baker use the reversed version: time travel is only possible into the past, and things of the past can't be carried back to the present (their future). The Company gets around this using a very, very elaborate WriteBackToTheFuture system.

* Normally averted in TimeWarpTrio. However, when they go back to the time of the cavemen with the intention of bringing back modern tech, they're left with nothing but their glasses, hat, and a straw.

* And one of the Dark Horse series of ''Terminator'' comics had a group of T-800s sent back to the past accompanied by a very unfortunate human in whose abdomen they'd surgically implanted future weapons prior to coming back. They ripped him open upon arrival and were good to go, rayguns-wise. Why Skynet doesn't do this more often (or just wrap the weapons in synthetic flesh, the same way it does the T-800 exoskeletons) is [[FridgeLogic unexplained]].

** In the pilot episode of ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles'', the human resistance gets around this by sending an engineer back to the 1960s, where he builds a plasma rifle and time machine and stashes them in a bank vault.

Sometimes the inverse is seen, where it's not possible to take anything from the past back to the future. (Sometimes this is justified by the claim that, for the object, the future doesn't exist yet.) Since it's otherwise not much of a dramatic limitation, this version usually only comes up in stories where a time-traveler is trying to save something (or some''one'') from being destroyed in the past.

* In Fanfic/TheInfiniteLoops, carrying things across the Loops requires either that the item be soul-bonded to a Looper (usually occurs with powerful magical artifacts), or that it be stored in a [[{{Hammerspace}} Subspace Pocket]] at the time the Loop resets. It is technically possible (DependingOnTheWriter anyway) to put living beings into a Pocket, but this is generally discouraged for obvious ethical reasons.

* In SpiderRobinson's ''TimePressure'', the time traveler arrives naked (except for her computer headband thing) and ''bald'' because of the limitations of the time machine. Time travel in some of the author's other books has similar limitations, such as an inability to bring living and nonliving things at the same time.
