* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', [[spoiler:there are very few people that give the [[AnIcePerson cold]] [[NotGoodWithPeople as]] [[{{Jerkass}} ice]] Jin Kisaragi pause. One of them is the KnightInShiningArmor, Hakumen, who's been around for the last century or so: a being that Jin became [[TimeyWimeyBall in an alternate version]] of the GroundhogDayLoop. In another way, [[TheHero Ragna the Bloodedge]] also has this issue. He's actually one of the two components of the Black Beast, the EldritchAbomination that destroyed half of the world in the distant past. When he's sent back in time [[AllThereInTheManual in one of the sidestories]], he dies by being absorbed into it while keeping it at bay for a whole year.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Twilight Sparkle encounters a future version of herself with a messy mane, torn unitard, bandanna, eyepatch, and even a ''scar''. The future self has no time to explain the events that caused her to be this way before, so Twilight becomes obsessed with figuring out what's going to happen. Eventually, through a series of unrelated incidents, she resembles the future self and realizes that there's no apocalypse at all. Then she tries to go back in time and tell herself to not worry, [[StableTimeLoop but this causes her past self to become obsessed in the first place.]]

* {{Downplayed}} in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. [[TagalongKid Steven]] finds a time-travel relic on a mission, and collects enough [[MesACrowd alternate versions]] of himself to start his own band. "Steven-1" is elected leader, but becomes so bossy that the other three rebel. A battle across time ensues, drawing in more and more Stevens, until they eventually show up at the beginning of the episode, when "Steven-0" was getting the relic. This Steven is so freaked out by his bullying future selves that Steven-1 has a HeelRealization and smashes the relic, [[NoOntologicalInertia erasing himself and the other time-clones from existence]].

** ''ComicBook/JeanGrey'' was disgusted when she found out [[ComicBook/DarkPhoenixSaga her future self bonded with a cosmic being, got corrupted and blew up a planet]]. Later on, she met a future alternate self in ''ComicBook/BattleOfTheAtom''. She wasn't impressed. In her solo book she meets the ghost of her then-dead adult self and blatantly says nobody would want to be her.

** Subverted in a pre-Zero Hour issue of ''Legion of Super-Heroes'' (vol. 4) (#40, to be specific) wherein the younger "temporal duplicate" of sweet, shy, and very feminine Salu Digby, aka Shrinking Violet, is initially horrified at the sight of her older counterpart, a (very) butch lesbian. Once they get to talking, though, the younger Salu decides that "I guess I do hope I turn out a lot like you, after all."

** In ''Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds'', SelfDemonstrating/SuperboyPrime met and attacked his future self, because... he didn't like his old face and beard.



* Comicbook/{{Superboy}}-[[EvilTwin 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]]]].
* [[Franchise/TheFlash Impulse]] is not at all pleased to discover his future self in Dark Tomorrow is a violent, DarkerAndEdgier hero who is no longer on speaking terms with his then-girlfriend and seems to be more lenient about the ThouShallNotKill rule than present-Imp.

* Early on in ''[[Comicbook/XMen All-New X-Men]]'', the X-Men first class from the past (particularly Scott and Warren) get this reaction upon seeing their future selves (save for Jean, [[KilledOffForReal for obvious reasons]]). Warren, in particular, is horrified to find out that, somewhere down the line, he'll degenerate into an amnesiac ManChild with techno-organic wings and, even after they both save Avengers Tower from an out-of-nowhere HYDRA attack, teen Warren messes with present Beast's time-travelling device in the middle of a HeroicBSOD just so he can go back to the past. He's only stopped because Jean mentally manipulates his emotions just in time.
