** A variation shows up in another episode, after the League meet their AlternateUniverse counterparts, the Justice Lords, who took over the world and rule it with an iron fist. They're not the least bit scared -- but the rest of their world is terrified when they find out, and the US government starts to take action to destroy their world's version. This ultimately ends as up the focus of ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'''s second-season arc.

* [[EvilTwin Superboy]] [[MultiversalConqueror Prime]] met and attacked his future self, because... he didn't like his old face and beard. If he hadn't judged people by their looks, he could have been amazed by the fact that his future self was [[spoiler: [[TimeMaster the Time Trapper]]]].

* In a StoryArc of the ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' comic, the Titans get dropped ten years in the future, and are more than a little disturbed to find that, in addition to [[SidekickGraduationsStick replacing their mentors]] and becoming DarkerAndEdgier, their future selves are the dictatorial rulers of half of what used to be the United States. The future Titans are equally disturbed by meeting their "naive" past selves.

* Averted in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': [[spoiler:Dave]] takes meeting his future self entirely in stride. It doesn't hurt that he gets awesome stuff from it.

Added DiffLines:

* In OnePiece's ''Fanfic/TomorrowsRomanceDawn'', while Zoro isn't explicitly afraid of his two year older self and future crew, he admits he doesn't like what they might represent. He doesn't trust his future self because Roronoa is hiding something from them (though with good reason) and keeps glancing at Luffy with a guilty look.
--> It was the gaze of a man who had been cracked in several places and welded back together. A man who had not quite been broken but came pretty close. And that alone shook Zoro down to his very core.

* In an episode of ''{{Duckman}}'', Duckman meets his future self, who warns him not to go to his sons' science show, telling him something bad will happen. Then ''another'' future version of him appears and tells him something bad will happen if he ''doesn't'' go. This happens several times, back and forth, until finally, he's afraid to do ''anything''.
