** The Clockroach itself, on the other hand, does not embody this trope.

** The Clockroach itself, on the other hand, does not embody this trope.trope, being instead a clockwork-based construct that happens to look like a giant cockroach and so is given a PunnyName.

* Among the many, ''many'' [[OurAngelsAreDifferent possible designations for Angels]] in ''TabletopGame/DemonTheDescent'' is "Time Hunter", which denotes an angel charged with slipping between different timestreams and temporal splinters in order to eliminate quantum ghosts and other temporally-displaced individuals who might tangle up the timelines. Unusually for this trope, they're also charged with eliminating individuals in order to ''create'' temporal splinters or timeline divergences as well as eliminating those who inadvertently get caught up in temporal anomalies.

** The only known weapon that can kill a Time Wraith is a high-intensity low-frequency sonic attack. Luckily, Hartley Rathaway (AKA the Pied Piper) knows a thing or two about sound.

** It's implied that [[spoiler:Time Wraiths are former speedsters, who were caught by other Time Wraiths for messing around with time travel and turned into one of them]].

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', careless meddling with the past risks summoning a Time Wraith to seek out and destroy the meddler. When Barry asks [[spoiler:Thawne]] why he has never encountered them before, he is told that he's been incredibly lucky. Besides, at most, he's affected one day before (when stopping Mardon and Savage).

[[spoiler:[[BigBad Zoom's]] careless use of a speedster's time travel abilities ultimately catches up to him when Barry lures the Time Wraiths out and gives him too much of a beating to escape. The Time Wraiths age Zoom nearly into a skeleton and then [[DraggedOffToHell drag him away screaming to a]] FateWorseThanDeath.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The "agent-in-place" from ''FanFic/HarryPotterAndTheNightmaresOfFuturesPast'' is a somewhat less omnivorous version of this trope. We don't know a lot about him, but he is apparently at Hogwarts, knows of the original timeline, and is working behind the scenes to ensure that certain events (such as Ginny getting possessed by the Diary Horcrux) come to pass in spite of Harry's manipulations. Notable in that Harry has no idea the agent-in-place exists, and therefore doesn't know ''why'' certain things seem determined to happen.

** Presumably, the Time Masters are careful enough to avoid the Time Wraiths in the ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' spin-off. So is [[BountyHunter Chronos]], probably.

* ''[[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky]]'': A [[TimeCrash time crash]] caused by [[spoiler: the destruction of temporal tower]] resulted in a [[BadFuture future of darkness]] where time has stopped. This causes [[spoiler: Dialga to regress into [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Primal Dialga,]] a force of nature only interested in self preservation.]] To prevent this from happening, [[spoiler: Grovile and the player]] traveled back in time to change history. This prompts [[spoiler: Primal Dialga]] to send [[spoiler: Dusknoir]] to stop them.
