* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsDreamDropDistance'': [[spoiler:Xehanort took advantage of his body-less state as a Heartless to slip into the past and recruit his own boyhood self for his latest scheme involving Sora and Riku's journey through dreams. And it doesn't stop there; Young Xehanort was tasked with gathering other Xehanorts from across time; the end result was TWELVE Xehanorts, including the final bosses of the first two proper games, all gathering to fulfill the present Xehanort's desire for "thirteen Seekers of Darkness"... with Sora as the thirteenth and final vessel. Yen Sid's jaw dropped when he realized what Xehanort was capable of pulling off.]]

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'': People in Valhalla, a world outside of proper history, are able to reach out to people across the timeline in their dreams. Caius Ballad abuses this by communicating with his OWN PAST SELVES from his vantage point in Valhalla. And since Caius has been immortal for a couple thousand years, there's a lot of past selves to contact.

* Creator/RobertAHeinlein ''loves'' this trope, though his protagonists sometimes have [[StopHelpingMe such a warped definition of "help"]] that it probably qualifies as an inversion. (See: ''Literature/AllYouZombies''.)

* Every level in ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters: Future Perfect'' has a point where you're helped out by your future self, after which you complete the loop by going back and helping your past self. There's even a section where there are four of you working together to open a door, and the player has to keep time traveling to play out all four roles.

* 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.

* One SpiderRobinson story involves a researcher trying to invent time-travel; when her duplicate shows up, she assumes it's this trope. [[spoiler: It's actually her resentful [[SeparatedAtBirth previously-unknown twin]], intending to screw up her sister's happy life.]]

* 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.
