[[spoiler:The BountyHunter Chronos is eventually revealed to be [[PyroManiac Mick Rory]] from the future, after Snart leaves him behind at an unspecified point in time and space rather than killing him. Months later, Rory is found by the Time Masters and trained to be their attack dog, before sending him after Rip Hunter and the team... at the point in time where Past!Mick is still a member of said team]].

* In one chapter/episode of ''UruseiYatsura'' Shutaro Mendō travelled back in time and very literally scared his younger self -- the child Mendō acted like such an obnoxious brat to his future self that he provoked the latter into attacking him with a sword. The young Mendō hid in a jar until the older Mendō returned to his own time, but that experience was what gave him his claustrophobia and fear of the dark ("WAAAN! KURAI YO SEMAI YO KOWAI YO!"). [[StableTimeLoop And what's more, the reason he travelled back in time in the first place was to prevent himself from getting that claustrophobia and fear of the dark.]]

* In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Present Trunks finds Future Trunks unsettling, especially when Future Trunks freaks out and attacks Goku. He gets over it, and the two end up becoming like brothers.
* ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' generally avoids this, even though characters coming back in time to change history becomes more commonplace as the story progresses (mainly because the future versions of the main cast [[NeverTheSelvesShallMeet tend not to interact]], leaving things to their [[KidFromTheFuture grandkids]] instead). The big exception for this is [[spoiler:Nagisa Aizawa, when she discovers that the mysterious "Box Girl" who seemingly tried to sabotage Asahi and Youko's relationship, is herself from ten years in the future. Though it's less hate and more annoyance, since Future Aizawa acts just as perverted as [[TheVamp Shiho]].]]

* The GreaterScopeVillain for the first year or so of ''ComicBook/MightyMorphinPowerRangersBoomStudios'' is a BadFuture version of [[spoiler: Tommy]] - one who [[spoiler: kept working for Rita even after her spell was broken.]] While this should mean the good one has already proven himself different, he's disturbed all the same.

* FateStayNight: Archer is [[spoiler:the protagonist]]'s future self. He's a legendary hero of mankind - the kind that murders average individuals or entire cities because they threaten the future of humanity. As a veteran time-assassin, Archer's an abusive, anarchistic asshole who rants at his past self about how being "the good guy" screwed up his life and the lives of others, all against their will.

* Inverted in ''Series/RedDwarf'', where in "Timeslides", Lister tries to make his past self super-rich by giving him the idea for a hit invention before the real inventor patents it. His younger self doesn't want to be rich, and says he'd rather be a broke musician. Played straight in the later episode "Out of Time", where the crew meet themselves from fifteen years in the future. The two sets of crew hate each other so much that they end up killing each other (with the "present" set surviving through TemporalParadox).

** 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.
