* In ''LightNovel/StrikeTheBlood'', [[KidFromTheFuture Reina]] arrives in the present naked and has to steal clothes. She could bring her magic spear with her because she can create and dismiss it with her powers. When she returns to her time, she vanishes and her [[EmptyPilesOfClothing stolen outfit falls to the ground]]. She arrives in her home naked and quickly puts on a bathrobe.

* ''Literature/{{Biggles}}--Adventures in Time'' has the 'time twin' traveling with whatever (including people) they were touch, resulting in the main character arriving in a french nunnery in only a towel.

* 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 [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fast Forward]], the turtles and Master Splinter are abruptly zapped to the future. Their weapons and cloth-- er, ''[[AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal accessories]]'' get left behind. No explanation is given, and it doesn't happen on the return journey, though they voluntarily leave future technology where it belongs.

* Henry in ''TheTimeTravelersWife'', who has a disease that causes him to spontaneously time travel. He cannot bring anything that is not part of him, like clothes, money or even dental implants.

* In Creator/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.

** However, it's played straight later in the episode, when [[spoiler:Sarah, John, and Cameron send themselves forward to 2007 and wind up naked on a '''very''' busy highway. Double {{Main/Squick}} points for this one, considering that Sarah is John's mom.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.
