* Done in ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'', of course. Worth mentioning because A) they give Jacob a brother, Robert, so they can give the role of Marley to both StatlerAndWaldorf, which allows them to B) sing a cool little song about it all. And C) [[StealthPun you get "Bob Marley"]]. (''Groan'')

* In "Homeschooling", Chase shows signs of becoming an abuser like his father. By sheer coincidence, his uncle, long thought to be dead, shows up and reveals that he long ago chose to leave their toxic family behind and considers himself better for it. Chase takes the wrong lesson from this, deciding that he needs to leave the other Runaways behind.

* The plot of the DCComics' comedy miniseries ''A. Bizarro''. Al Bizarro, duplicated not from {{Superman}}, but from a [=LexCorp=] employee called Albert Beezer, initially thinks he should try to be like Beezer, but at the end of the first issue, Beezer tells Bizarro that his life sucks and in order to be happy Bizarro should "do the exact opposite of everything I did!" (a MythologyGag on the pre-Crisis Bizarro Code).
* Lou Martin, TheSlacker protagonist of ''Major Bummer'' gets one of these from his time-traveling future self, who regrets having wasted his life. By the end of the story, present-day-Lou acts like he's had an epiphany, but the next scene shows him sleeping in and [[RefusalOfTheCall actively avoiding superheroics]] as usual.

* ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' has employed this a few times:
** At the beginning of the second series, the team is visited by Heroine, a future version of Gert, who warns them that there's a BadFuture coming unless they stop Victor Mancha from becoming Victorious. Gert even references ''Christmas Carol'', calling Heroine "the Ghost of Hanukkah Future". She also repudiates Heroine, declaring that the only way she could ever become a leader of the Avengers is if she sold out her principles, and resolves to never become her. [[spoiler:She doesn't, in fact, become Heroine; she's killed near the middle of the second series.]]
** In the "Dead-End Kids" arc, it could be argued that Klara - meek, submissive, and increasingly isolated from everyone except her spouse - represents what Karolina fears she is becoming in her relationship with Xavin. After Xavin dismisses Klara's plight as unimportant, Karolina decides that she will have to start standing up for herself.

Bob meets George. George represents what will become of Bob if he takes the same path George did. Specifically, he represents a path that leads to corruption and evil and/or to a generally a miserable life. If George is well-meaning, he will try to warn Bob to not make the mistake he did. If George is evil, he may instead [[TheCorrupter encourage Bob to follow in his footsteps]]. Either way, Bob will ultimately decide that he does not want to end up like George.

* ''{{Doraemon}}'': It's the eponymous robot's raison d'etre to stop Nobita from becoming a FutureLoser, but occasionally, Future Nobita himself appears to whip his younger self into studying diligently. These are some of the most unsettling episodes, since Future Nobita knows his past-self's tricks and possess Doraemon's future gadgets.
