*Herot's storyline in ''Webcomic/{{Fatebound}}'' is built on his desire to take control of reality and remake it into something he views as more amenable to mankind, and the gamble he makes with a god to bring that about.

* In TheDCU's CrisisCrossover ''ZeroHour'', Hal Jordan as Parallax tried to go back to the big bang and reboot the universe the way he wanted it. This resulted in another CosmicRetcon and a partial ContinuityReboot to several DC series (Hawkman and Comicbook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}, most notably).

* In ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', [[GodOfEvil the Dark One]] would do this if it ever got free. During their final battle, it torments [[TheChosenOne Rand]] by showing him two possibilities it might realize- the first is a dystopian hellscape ruled by [[QuirkyMinibossSquad the Forsaken]], and the second ''seems'' normal enough... until it's revealed that the entire human race have had their sense of right and wrong and empathy removed, turning them into heartless sociopaths just like the Dark One itself. In both cases, history was rewritten so that no one realized anything was wrong. [[spoiler: The second vision was so bad that Rand produced a world where ''he'' did this, by making it so that the Dark One had never existed. Except it turns out that the Dark One is necessary for free will, so that everyone in Rand's "perfect" world was only eternally good and happy because he'd essentially brainwashed them to be like that. Cue MyGodWhatHaveIDone]].

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' series, this is the final resolution of any AI that goes Rampant - to escape the heat-death of the universe and shape the one that follows. To quote Durandal, "Escape would make me a god."

So things aren't going too well for you. Maybe you want to turn over a new leaf. Maybe you want to start your life anew. Instead, maybe you don't want to half-ass it, you want make all life anew. Or, you could just be a CardCarryingVillain. This trope is when a character gets the bright idea to go back to the beginning of time, or a foundational event in the timeline, because their mere presence or actions will cause ForWantOfANail to its logical extreme.
