A plot in which the character is caught in a time loop, [[CursedWithAwesome doomed]] to repeat a period of time (often exactly one day) over and over, until something is corrected. Usually, only one character or group of characters [[RippleEffectProofMemory realizes what's going on]
], or at least has an odd sense of DejaVu -- everyone and everything else undergoes a complete SnapBack, and if not interfered with will do the exact same things every time, right down to dialogue.

* The LightNovel (and its manga adaptatation) ''LightNovel/AllYouNeedIsKill'' (which was adapted into the movie ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow'', see below) is about a young Japanese rookie soldier called Keiji Kiriya who dies during his first, disastrous deployment against the aliens who are wiping out mankind, only to reset back to the same point on the day before the battle, and continually do so every time he dies. Using the endless loops to train himself into an almost-unstoppable badass, he finds it still isn't enough to win the battle, until he meets Rita Vritraski, "the Full Metal Bitch", a young female war hero who, it turns out, [[spoiler:became a hero after using the same power he has to win a decisive battle for mankind]] and she explains that Keiji [[spoiler:accidentally stole the time loop power from the ''aliens,'' who are abusing their ability to reset time to outmaneuver humanity]]. The two team up to try and defeat the aliens. Then things go screwy when it turns out [[spoiler:the loop will never end unless one of them personally kills the other and [[BitterSweetEnding Keiji kills Rita to go on alone and win the battle]]]]. The ending was thankfully changed for the movie adaptation, which benefited from a lot of AdaptationExpansion in general.

** The 1990 short film, also titled "12:01 PM", is the more direct, and much darker than most time-loop stories: Myron Castleman's loop only lasts an hour, and he starts each iteration standing on a traffic island in the middle of crossing a busy street, hungry, carrying his lunch in his briefcase, and the film ends with [[spoiler:Myron learning that nothing can stop the loop, and that even death is no escape]].

* The "Choose" plotline of ''ComicBook/SkinHorse'' has a time loop that resets whenever Jonah dies over the course of a very complicated day. Since he falls into the loop while in Anasigma headquarters, where EverythingIsTryingToKillYou, this quickly leads to him [[TakingALevelInBadass taking several levels in badass]]. Also, it doesn't appear to have been ''stopped'' as such, he just stopped dying.

* The ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'' episode "[[Recap/StarTrekDiscoveryS1E07MagicToMakeTheSanestManGoMad Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad]]" has [[ConMan Harry Mudd]] infiltrate the ''Discovery'' and use an alien device to keep looping the same half-hour period dozens of times in order to [[SaveScumming Save Scum]] his way into learning everything about the ship in order to take it over and sell it to the Klingons. He also uses it as an opportunity to exact his revenge against [[TheCaptain Lorca]] by killing him in various ways at least 54 times. The only one (besides Mudd himself) with RippleEffectProofMemory is Stamets thanks to injecting himself with "tardigrade" DNA a few episodes prior. It's mentioned that Mudd previously robbed a Betazoid bank using the same method (doubly impressive, considering Betazoids can read minds).
