* 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.

The roaches in this case manifest as mobile shadows that attach themselves to things they find in the wrong time, causing excruciating pain as they (presumably) eat them. They appear to be somewhat physical, as Buffy manages to cut one off of her arm, cutting her arm in the process.

** The Reapers, [[MonsterOfTheWeek Flying Killer Time Gargoyles]] from "Father's Day". The Ninth Doctor describes them in terms similar to white blood cells -- when a paradox is triggered, they clean up the "wound" by erasing everything inside it. "Before" the Time War, the Gallifreyans kept paradoxes in order in a much less destructive way, but now they're gone.
** The original series serial "The Time Monster" has the Chronovores, which are similar enough to the Reapers (giant winged things that eat people's timelines) that they may as well be considered a related critter. It's worth mentioning that the Chronovores were fleshed out in a novel by Paul Cornell, who later wrote "Father's Day". Some fans speculate that he wanted to feature Chronovores in "Father's Day" but was prevented by some sort of legal issue. Given we know The Doctor [[UnreliableExpositor just makes things up sometimes]], they could even be the same creatures and he just made up a different name for them this time.
