** The plot of ''Warlords of Draenor'' happens because of this. Garrosh Hellscream, sent back in time to Draenor [[spoiler: by the bronze dragon Kairozdormu]] prevents the Horde from drinking the blood of Mannoroth and instead arms them with the technology of present day Azeroth, creating the Iron Horde. Though in a twist, he was sent to an AlternateUniverse instead (so his making wrong doesn't affect present day Azeroth until the Iron Horde make a Dark Portal and start trying to invade).

** This is the Master's plan in Big Finish' [[MilestoneCelebration 50th anniversary special]] "The Light at the End". A conceptual bomb causes the TARDIS to be RetGone, meaning the Doctor never left Gallifrey.

** In the reboot a group of Evronians led by Zondag get their hands on Kronin (a CompositeCharacter of the Raider and his predecessor) and his TimeMachine, and uses it to prevent the formation of their enemies, the Guardians of the Galaxy ([[GuardiansOfTheGalaxy No, not those guys]][[note]]Though considering now Disney owns Marvel...[[/note]]). [[ButterflyOfDoom This results in the destruction of the militaristic Evronian Empire and its replacement with pacifist Evronians]], to their immense horror and Kronin's hilarity ([[GenreSavvy as he smugly explains, there was a good reason if Kronin never tried to change the past: the danger of something like this happening]]).

** Note that in the case of the first film, it's more this trope than usual. Skynet had in fact lost to the humans, and sending the Terminator back was a last-ditch attempt to save itself.

* In ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'', the BigBad's goal is to go back in time and prevent Voldemort's fall and death. This is nearly successful, when Albus Severus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy's attempt to save Cedric Diggory (by humiliating him during the tournament) backfires and results in him becoming a Death Eater, leading to Harry's death and Voldemort's rule, but the protagonists manage to restore events to their proper course.

* In ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'', Drago comes back in time from some unspecified point in the future in order to eliminate Jade and other potential threats to his own rule in the future.
* The ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' has [[spoiler:[[BiggerBad Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox]], whose plan is to have each [[BadFuture Dark World]] time loop end with Twilight [[SuperPoweredEvilSide going Nightmare]] and [[FutureMeScaresMe becoming her]] to perpetuate the GroundhogDayLoop. If any other outcome occurs, including Twilight saving the world without doing that, Paradox herself interferes in such a way to ''force'' Twilight to, even if the end result would've been a good outcome or actually SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong and prevent Discord's reign. This is especially notable because her original motivation was to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong, but she allowed herself to be consumed by vengeance on Discord, [[TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget forgetting why she started in the first place.]].]]
** In the Shining Armor Arc, it eventually turns out that [[spoiler: the [[TheEmpire Hooviet Empire]] was supposed to have imploded decades ago, but [[BigBad General-Admiral Makarov]] -- in actuality a [[RealityWarper reality bending]] imagination demon called the Shadow of Chernobull -- influenced and manipulated events to prevent that, thus having the ripple effect of making the world a much darker place than it would be without Makarov's influence. It thus becomes the goal of Shining Armor and the [[LaResistance Anti-Hooviet Rebels]] to RetGone him from existence.]]
