* 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.]]

* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' is full of this, what with their [[spoiler:Temporal Cold War]] and all. [[spoiler:The entire third season is riddled with malicious time travel]].
** Subverted in the Season Four pilot, "Storm Front". At first, it looks like Nazi aliens came back in time and helped Nazi Germany defeat Britain and invade the US. [[spoiler:It turns out that these aliens had nothing to do with it - the altered timeline was the result of some other time traveler killing Lenin in 1916, preventing the rise of the Soviet Union. The current crop of aliens, while having their own Nazi-esque ideology, are just using our Nazis as pawns to help them build their own time machine so they can take over history. The Nazis do get some [[StupidJetpackHitler Stukas with plasma cannons]] out of the deal, but they get into a dogfight with the ''Enterprise''.]]

* In the second IncarnationsOfImmortality book, ''Bearing An Hourglass'', Satan tries to trick Chronos into stopping Zane from attempting sucide, which would erase Thanatos from existence. Then, demons follow Chronos on his trips through time and screw with history.

* One ''Webcomic/{{Subnormality}}'' strip has two Nazi time travelers traveling back in time to kill President Roosevelt. Unluckily for them, they picked ''[[TheodoreRoosevelt the wrong damn Roosevelt]]''.

* Creator/DeanKoontz's ''Lightning''. [[spoiler: Nazis try to change history so they can win UsefulNotes/WorldWar2.]] Although there's a twist: [[spoiler: They're not Nazis from the future traveling to the past, as one might expect. They're Nazis from the past (i.e., a Nazi scientist in 1940 or so actually invented the time machine) traveling to the future to figure out how they lost and bring back information and other stuff to help them win.]]
** That twist feeds into an interesting case of [[spoiler: SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong, where the protagonists tells Winston Churchill about the Cold War, an action that means the Allies keep on pushing east, driving the Soviets of the map in Eastern Europe, preventing that long conflict from ever taking place.]]
*** FridgeLogic [[spoiler: Churchill never trusted the Soviets in the first place. How would telling him about the cold war change his politics at all?]]
*** [[spoiler: Yes, but there's plenty of room to alter how he deals with that threat.]]

He proclaims this with his usual [[LargeHam hamminess]], of course.]]
