An evil genius comes up with an Evil Plan, go back in time to kill Hitler causing the Soviet Union to take over Europe. His henchman called him out on it, stating he's just copying the plot of ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert''. Unlike Red Alert though, the universe just explodes.

* In one classic ''StrontiumDog'' prog, Johnny Alpha and Wulf travel back in time to arrest Hitler and put him on trial before the Court of Ultimate Retribution. They have to pick him up moments before his suicide however, otherwise there would be nothing to try him for.

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in {{Stephen King}}'s ''Literature/ElevenTwentyTwoSixtyThree'' where, instead of going back in time to assassinate someone, the title character instead goes back in time to ''prevent'' an assassination, specifically that of JFK. [[spoiler: He learns the hard way that the trope goes both ways; not only did the future of that timeline turn out to become a CrapsackWorld where the Civil Rights movement never happened, about half of the world was victimized by one nuclear incident or another, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Maine seceded to Canada]], but it turns out that drastic changes to history can [[TimeCrash destroy time itself]].]]

* Discussed in the ''Podcast/ThrillingAdventureHour'' Amelia Earhart, when Amelia realizes the Nazis are gunning for her by preventing her parents from being together. She and her handler Abby Adams mention they can't do the same to Hitler because his nursery is heavily guarded.

Secondly, even if you do manage to kill him, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero something equally bad will appear in his place]]: an even smarter and crueler Führer [[GodwinsLawOfTimeTravel who wins the war]]; or UsefulNotes/JosefStalin [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert takes advantage of the fact that Germany isn't invading Russia in this new timeline]] and the SovietUnion starts World War II; or [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3 Japan starts its own invasion with giant mecha.]] In addition, if it wasn't for Hitler's nightmarish slaughter of "undesirables" that took place under his leadership, the rest of the world wouldn't have experienced the sort of collective shock upon discovery of the Holocaust that spurred them into beginning the process of purging racist elements from their own nations. After all, the American Civil Rights movement, the end of colonial minority rule in places like India, and other rejections of systems of "racial superiority" only started to seriously take place ''after'' the Holocaust. To do otherwise was to essentially agree with Hitler's beliefs, something that no sane person would even contemplate after 1945. If someone ''does'' kill Hitler, they'll almost always have to [[RubberBandHistory undo]] it to prevent this.

** I think it's said in ''Doomsday Book'' that the time traveller arrives at a nearby point in spacetime such that she cannot change history. (In that novel she aimed for England 1328 and landed in 1348; she doesn't change history because everyone she meets dies.) The story we read may be the result of a series of loops converging on stability.

It mistakenly called a three part episode a two part episode. I also added the episode's name.
** In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', one two-parter episode involves traveling back in time, where ComicBook/VandalSavage has usurped control over the Nazis after being told, in a time-travelled message from his future self, that he "has to get rid of that lunatic Hitler" and seize control in order for the Germans to win the second World War. Strangely, though, Savage only freezes Hitler in cryogenic suspension, rather than more permanently disposing of him, and thusly Hitler is thawed out and restored to his "proper place" after Savage is defeated, hence fitting this trope. An attempted AuthorsSavingThrow was a subsequent commentary by the producers that this means that, in Justice League-Earth, World War II happened but the Holocaust did ''not'', courtesy of Savage's aborted attempt at changing the future.
