** Future [[SignificantMonogram John Connor]] is referred to as a brilliant, BadAss military leader of the [[LaResistance human resistance]]. The first film shows him in action, as part of Kyle's description of him to Sarah, then we see him as a child in the second movie and TV show.

* ''Webcomic/HarryPotterComics'' did this with Deputy Bart and Rosie Weasley travelling back from an apocalyptic future to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong. The trope was partially subverted, though, because afterwards they stuck around as displaced time clones.

* FanFic/HarmonyTheory: It's revealed that Spike grew into GeniusBruiser and MightyGlacier, who's now capable of ripping ponies in two, while shrugging off gunfire. This however puts extra tension on his interaction with [[spoiler:Rarity, who's woken up in the future]] and isn't used to the violence of the AfterTheEnd Equestria.

* In PeggySue fanfic ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'', both Shinji and Asuka retain their combat experience, and given how they've lost most of their mental issues, are infinitely better at piloting and fighting.

* Played with in {{Series/Merlin}}. Merlin is destined to be the most powerful sorcerer who ever lived and unite the old and the new worlds. However, just when this will happen is kept ambiguous, so it's not going to be clear whether or not he's already become this until the series ends.

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'': Played with in that we meet the badass version first. Reverse Flash is a villain from the future who is much more powerful than Flash and curb-stomps him every time they fight unless he has help. Eventually, a younger, less experienced version of him arrives in the present who is easily defeated by Flash.

** The alternate timeline versions of [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E25TheCutieRemarkPart1 Cutie Remark]] feature several. [[spoiler: In the first timeline, Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie are frontline soldiers in a brutal war of attrition with the scars to show for it. In the second timeline, Zecora leads whats left of pony-kind, including Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie, in a hopeless LastStand against the changelings. In yet another timeline, the Flim-Flam brothers go from annoying con artists to conquerors of Equestria.]]

* In HomestarRunner, occassionally you see a little alien, only slightly bigger than The Cheat, who's a ButtMonkey, named Nebulon. The most famous quote associated with him is 'Go away Nebulon. Nobody likes your style." Well, in ''VideoGame/{{Stinkoman20x6}}'', Nebulon is now several hundreds times larger, able to shoot energy balls, and is the king of the moon. Due to the fluid nature of the Homestar Runner universe, he is both an alternate version and the future version, with the manual even saying that he's been working out, making it clear he is the same character.
