* Done in the ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' episode "...Different Destinations" inadvertently. At first, Crichton and the crew believe that their actions are meant to reset the timeline to its original form but their actions lead to a massacre rather than a truce in one battle.

** Tarantulus also has this reason for following Megatron. He wanted to kill all the Autobots and Deceptacons aboard the Ark. This would wipe out their descendants, the Maximals and the Predacons, but since Tarantulus [[spoiler:has a different origin, he'd be fine. He is killed before his plan comes close to fruition though.]]

* The player actually does this inadvertently at the start of ''{{Singularity}}'' due to time travel. Instead of the BigBad dying in a fire, we save him, which results in the USSR taking over the world... oops. The player then spends the rest of the game trying to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong, but in the end, the game designers give the player the choice to TakeAThirdOption in addition to the usual Paragon and Renegade choices.

* ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse'' reveals the time-travelling ne're-do-wells Towa and Miira, the leaders of the Time Breakres, are out to change events in ''Manga/DragonBall'''s history for the worst, such as allowing Raditz to evade Piccolo's Special Beam Cannon, or reviving Nappa, because Towa was Dabura's brother, whose brainwashing and eventual death seems to have given her [[MisplacedRetribution a vendetta against the heroes and timeline itself.]]

* In ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'', Biff goes back in time to make his younger self rich. This might not be a Make Wrong What Once Went Right, at least not from his perspective, but it does turn the city into a hellhole. The only person who benefitted in any way is Biff, who just about owns everything. Plus, according to {{Word of God}}, even Biff might have lived to regret it: the reason why he's clutching his chest as he gets out of the [=DeLorean=] in 2015 is that he was so awful that [[spoiler: Lorraine shot him dead sometime in the 90s]], so he's no longer alive in that timeline, which is in the process of changing the world around him into a dystopian 2015.

* Creator/HarryTurtledove's ''Literature/TheGunsOfTheSouth''. Time traveling racist Afrikaaners aid the Confederacy so it wins UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar, hoping to create a strong ally that advocates White Power. It starts going OffTheRails when they can't arrive until 1864 (after the first black regiments distinguished themselves), prominent Confederates like Robert E. Lee begin moving to take steps to weaken slavery, and then enters into NiceJobFixingItVillain when they try to use blackmail and violence to get what they want, turning the Confederates completely against them.

* ''Series/{{Timecop}}'': In this short-lived [[RecycledTheSeries television spin-off]], recurring bad guy Ian Pascoe is an evil time traveller who has committed many crimes throughout history, from supplying Al Capone, taking part in assassinations, killing Jack the Ripper to take his place, and causing the Chernobyl and Hindenburg disasters. It's so extreme that the time agents note that they can't even correct all of Pascoe's previous meddling with the timestream, because they're already living inside one that was fundamentally shaped by his actions.

* The Israeli satire series ''M.K. 22'' featured an episode in which the resident BigBad, a Bedouin who is secretly a terrorist, goes back in time to try and drive the Jews away from Palestine and prevent the establishment of the State of Israel in several different points in time: he tries to kill [[Literature/TheBible Moses]] [[TheresNoKillLikeOverkill with a bazooka]], King David (before his coronation, during his fight with Goliath) with a rifle, and King Solomon with a thrown axe, and to convince Theodor Herzl not to found a Jewish state. All of his attempts [[NiceJobFixingItVillain have the opposite outcome]], accidentally causing a StableTimeLoop: the bazooka hits the rock in the desert that produces water for the people[[note]]The story of Moses hitting the rock to produce water is much more famous among Jews; in the original story, however, Moses hit the rock in frustration instead of asking it to produce water, as God told him, a sin for which God [[DisproportionateRetribution told him he would not be allowed into the Holy Land]], which he has been wandering towards for ''forty years'', but this is naturally glossed over for the sake of RuleOfFunny.[[/note]], making Moses, who was planning to flee with his brother, a hero; the bullet hits Goliath instead of David; the axe cuts the baby from the JudgmentOfSolomon in half, portraying the unattentive King Solomon as a hero; and Herzl had never thought about founding a Jewish state beforehand.
