* In DragonQuestV you meet an NPC who has an aged up sprite of the Hero during the prologue, who asks to briefly see the McGuffin you just acquired. This relic is later destroyed by TheDragon. Much later in the game, you go back in time with a mundane look alike of said McGuffin and swap it with your younger self, since you need the relic in the future, meaning TheDragon destroyed the fake, without anybody realizing it, yourself included.

* What your future self does in ''TheJourneymanProject 2: Buried In Time'', since he was framed [[spoiler: by a rogue TSA agent]], and the only way out was his past self from 2319. He gives you his Jumpsuit and sends you 9 years forward in time, while he himself goes to jail without protest. Since the Jumpsuit has a cloaking device, nobody else noticed you were there.

* Inverted in the Warhammer40K background: traveling through the Warp occasionally ends up in getting out before you left. This was demonstrated by an ork Waaaagh, who ran into each other as the first was preparing to go into the Warp. Despite realizing he was essentially fighting himself, the warboss attacks anyway, as he wished to have two sets of his favorite gun, killing his past self. In the resulting confusion, the Waaaagh loses steam and disbands.
