* This was how ComicBook/JohnConstantine first introduced himself to Abby Arcane in the pages of ''ComicBook/SwampThing''. Of course, in [[BlueCollarWarlock his]] case it's a ''literal'' TheWizardDidIt.

* Played for laughs in an early episode of TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy where Grim sneaks into the car of a man who was driving erratically since he was playing with his cell phone behind the wheel. After Grim kills the phone's battery, the driver barely avoids crashing and killing several kids who were crossing the street. As he realizes what he almost did, he adjusts his mirror and sees Grim in the backseat, causing him to panic and floor it again.

* This is how Dr. Cassandra meets time-hopping Cole in ''Series/12Monkeys''.
* ''Series/LethalWeapon''. In the Lawmen episode, Barton kidnaps Captain Brooks from such a position. The setting makes the trope so obvious of its actualization, that a nagging feeling can be anticipated.
