* ''Film/DragonBallZResurrectionF'': [[spoiler:Upon being revived, Frieza decides to train himself so he can exact his revenge on Goku, making a beeline for Earth after achieving his new GoldenSuperMode. However, just like on Namek, he ends up running out of stamina before Goku since, just like before, he didn't master his new form and learn how to regulate his energy output. Goku shows him mercy and, just like before, Frieza throws it back in his face (this time more successfully, with the help of an underling). When Vegeta steps in to fight Frieza, Frieza destroys the Earth, just like before on Namek, but thanks to Whis's ability to reverse time, Goku kills him before he can destroy the Earth and sends Frieza right back to hell.]]

** Series 8 was essentially a variation on this: an elderly Doctor in his fifties, in which his two first companions were teachers from Coal Hill School (kinda), and a new regeneration cycle were all elements from the very beginning.

** Meta-example with the Time War and destruction of Gallifrey: Elements of this story had been bouncing around since the early 1980s, usually with the intention of curing the series of a lot of its ContinuityLockout. However, none of the attempts to actually depict it ever got off the ground. The 4D War intended by Creator/AlanMoore never made it fully to print. "Gallifrey", a sixth Doctor episode to be written by Pip and Jane Baker intended to destroy the titular planet and shake up the status quo, was part of a cancelled season. "Doctor Who: The Last of the Time Lords" was the title for one draft of what eventually became the TV Movie. The Eighth Doctor Adventures range of BBC Books was derailed by a story arc about "The War", a time-active conflict in the future that would destroy Gallifrey, but the War never came to pass due to the writer behind it being ExiledFromContinuity, resulting in a story where Gallifrey was destroyed. In fact, from 1981's ''4-D War'' to 2013's ''Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor'', the Time War was never actually depicted, and given the setting of the aforementioned anniversary special, it arguably still hasn't been.

* Cherished by the ''[[{{Belgariad}} Mallorean]]''. Due to a mistake in the fabric of the universe, events recur with minor changes throughout history. By the end of the series, the heroes are actively noticing the recursion and using it to their advantage. The ultimate goal of the series is to fix this, so that time can finally move ahead.

In fact, Robert mistook Domeric for Rhaegar and nearly charges the tournament field in a rage before Ned points out that it's really Domeric.



* This is actually one particularly bleak interpretation of the events seen in John Carpenter's ''Film/TheThing1982''. The theory here is that the alien spaceship that brought the Thing was deliberately crashed in Antarctica in order to keep it from getting out. Fast forward 100,000 years later and a group of Norwegians find it, examine it, and then it gets out and kills all but two who end up dying in the process of trying to keep it from getting further. [[spoiler: Then the remainder of an American expedition destroyed by the Thing destroys their camp in an effort to keep the Thing from being found by a rescue team- whether they succeed is left for the viewer to decide, but an alternate ending shown in some TV broadcasts implied that it escaped]]
