** "Are we inverted?" is a common question in ''Literature/TheCatWhoWalksThroughWalls'' as well.

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in Creator/RogerZelazny's time travel novel ''Literature/{{Roadmarks}}''; on several occasions, people reminisce about a previous meeting with the protagonist then add that they're not sure if it's happened to him yet, because he looked older then. [[spoiler:It turns out that he's growing younger instead of older as time goes on.]]

* In Timesplitters Future Perfect there are several missed opportunities for this with the heroes, due to there being 3 different time travel variants being used. However it's played completely straight when the main hero meets the Villain for the third time, except the villain has no idea what his evil scheme is until the hero explains it...

* Spoofed in a [[ABitOfFryAndLaurie Fry & Laurie]] sketch about time travel, in which Stephen Fry is visited three times in succession by Hugh Laurie as first a time traveler from five minutes into the future, then a time traveler from five minutes into the past, and finally a present-day scientist working on a device that will certainly not cause time travel as a side effect, all of whom claim not to have met him before. After Laurie leaves the third time, Fry remarks to the audience: "I'm sure, logically, something weird should happen now, but I can't work out what."

* Twice in ''{{Okamiden}}'', with the same characters. When Nanami the mermaid first meets Chibiterasu in Agata forest, she greets him as an old friend, but Chibi acts all confused and does not seem to remember her. This is explained later in the game when [[spoiler:Chibi travels nine months into the past and meets Nanami again, and he greets her like a friend but she does not remember him, because for her that was the first time they met.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' short story, "Root of Evil", the Fourth Doctor and Leela visit a living space station whose inhabitants hate the Doctor to the point that their names are shortened versions of descriptions of pain they will inflict upon the Doctor on their vengeance. This confuses the Doctor, since he hasn't met these people yet. It's not until he's shown a giant statue of the Eleventh Doctor that he realizes this trope is in effect.

* ''{{Hexwood}}'' opens this way; when young Hume asks Yam if they've met before, Yam happily informs him that yes, yes they have, many times. And they have, kinda. The book's Mind Screw designation in its entry is aptly earned.

* [[MahouTsukaiNoYoru Aoko Aozaki]] does this a couple times in ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood'', such as claiming to [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Roa]] that if he [[BackFromTheDead keeps]] [[GrandTheftMe being alive]] they might have already met sometime in the future. And then she mocks the idea of asking a [[RealityWarper True Magician]] 'Have we met?', and notes that he's exactly as creepy now as he will have been in the future.
