* ''Series/DoctorWho'' is full of these. The two most prominent examples are the Master, who is the EvilCounterpart to the Doctor's time traveling alien, and the Daleks, who are {{Cyborg}} aliens. Both want to conquer the universe... in all time periods, past, present, and future.
** Arguably the most prominent new series example appears in the form of the Toclafane [[spoiler: who are later revealed to be the mangled remains of humanity from the far future, having traveled into the past with the help of the Master in order to escape the end of the universe.]]

* As with its parent series, AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho features quite a few of these. One of the more subtle examples of this trope appears in "[[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho076Singularity Singularity]]," in which the new-age cult known as the [[PathOfInspiration Somnus Foundation]] is secretly being run by individuals from the far future; having found a way to transmit their minds backwards through time, the Sleepers have [[GrandTheftMe taken over the bodies]] of people in the 21st century and are using the cult in order to track down more compatible bodies for their brethren to take over - with the eventual intention of kickstarting a psychic singularity and transforming the human race into a PhysicalGod powerful enough to change history. For added unpleasantness, the body-snatching process leaves the minds of the unfortunate victims trapped in the Sleepers' own time, condemned to live out the rest of their lives in the Sleepers' [[BodyHorror original bodies]]. [[spoiler: It's eventually revealed that the Sleepers are actually the last remaining members of the human race, having transported themselves into the past in a desperate attempt to escape the Heat Death of the Universe.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Onimusha}} 3: Demon Siege'' features a rare inversion as the villains from the distant past use time travel to take over the future: specifically [[DemonKingNobunaga Nobunaga Oda]] uses a magic portal to send demon hordes from Japan to invade modern day France.

* Also from the DCU, Xotar the Weapons Master, a criminal from the 120th century who fought the JusticeLeagueOfAmerica. His first attempt (the JLA's second ever appearance, in ''ComicBook/TheBraveAndTheBold'' #29) actually addressed the history problem: Xotar had found a fragmentary old historical document mentioning that he had travelled to 1960 to defeat the Justice League. The story ends with the document being written, revealing that with all the missing portions in place it is an account of his ''unsuccessful attempt'' to defeat the Justice League.

* ''ComicBook/{{Vampirella}}'': Professor Benjamin Quatermass originates from a timeline 100 years in the future when humanity has abandoned the Earth's surface for floating cities. In a variation, he invades the past to make sure that his ancestor will ''invent'' time travel technology, allowing for the incredibly complicated series of events to ensure that he'll controll all timelines.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', the Yorkes are a subversion; they came from the distant future to plunder the past, but during an unexpected detour in 1983, they made contact with the Gibborim, who conscripted them into a plan to remake the world, which kinda rendered any plans they might have had to conquer the world irrelevant, as the world would have ceased to exist in 2003.

* Also from Marvel comics, we have Zarrko the Tomorrow Man. He and Kang know each other and don't get along; they've had time wars occasionally.
