* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', [[spoiler: Amy Pond]] and her army appear with them after time goes [[TimeyWimeyBall wibbly-wobbly]]. Subverted in that they all have two working eyes; the patches contain tech which allows them to "remember" the Silents.

* ''Webcomic/LeifAndThorn'': The [[http://leifandthorn.com/comic/fish-story-3141/ brief appearance]] of [[spoiler:time-traveling future Thorn]]. Who Holly first guesses to be "[[MirrorUniverse alternate-dimension evil]] [[spoiler:Thorn]]."



* Even ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' utilizes this trope in the episode "It's About Time". Twilight Sparkle encounters a future version of herself sporting a skintight suit, a bandanna, an eyepatch, and a scar on her cheek ([[spoiler:actually a SpyCatsuit, a bandage, a therapeutic eyepatch, and a papercut, respectively. The eyepatch in this case was from being blinded by looking at the sun through a telescope)]].

* In the original 1992-3 airings of ''[[Series/YoungIndianaJones The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles]]'', there were [[FramingDevice opening and closing bookends]] set in the present day (that is, the 1990s). These featured a wizened 93-year-old IndianaJones (played by George Hall), who sported a patch over his right eye, and a pair of glasses over the eyepatch. He also had a long vertical facial scar trailing out from under the patch. No explanation was ever offered for how Indy had lost an eye. The "time skip" element comes into play because Creator/HarrisonFord's Indy of course still has both eyes in the film series, set in the 1930s. These contemporary bookends were later all cut out when [[ReCut George Lucas re-edited the show]] into ''The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones'' in the later part of the decade.

* [[spoiler: Asuka]] gained one for ''[[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Evangelion 3.0]]'', [[spoiler:which takes place 14 years after ''2.0'']]. Mildly played with, in that we ''probably'' saw her lose the eye in ''2.0'', but before the TimeSkip she was shown with [[BandageBabe a whole load of bandages over that side of her face]] instead of the EyepatchOfPower she sports afterwards. ([[TropesAreFlexible Close enough.]])

Added DiffLines:

** And then in the season five finale, a brief shot of an [[BadFuture alternate timeline]] shows us Rainbow Dash with an eye scar, torn ear, and metal wing. This is played dead serious, unlike the previous example: It's part of a WarIsHell montage.

* Since at least 1990, Mirage's ''[[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesMirage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' comic regularly hinted at a unpleasant future for our heroes. Most of these stories would show Raphael missing his left eye. An explanation seemingly comes in ImageComics' Volume 3, where Raph gets disfigured and eventually wears a patch, but this would later be ruled CanonDiscontinuity. It would later be revealed in a 2010 ''Tales of the TMNT'' story that [[spoiler:Shadow cut Raph's eye out during battle]].
** The LighterAndSofter ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesAdventures'' also featured a future Raph missing an eye.
