* The ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters'' games: while it's an undeveloped ExcusePlot that ignores the details in 1 and 2, Future Perfect goes the whole hog complete with time-bending radio headsets.

Related to TimeTravelTenseTrouble. See also SequenceDeception, in which the fact that there are multiple timeframes is concealed.

* One episode of ''SuperFriends'' has the ever-so-serious voice of the narrator intoning "Meanwhile, ''back'' in the future..." with no apparent irony.

* In the ''StrontiumDog'' "Max Bubba" storyline, Johnny goes back to the year 793 AD to stop the eponymous mutant from changing history. Bubba proceeds to kill every member of the Thoresen family, apparently to send a message to the future, with the result that descendants of the Thoresons spontaneously drop dead and vanish, yet everybody seems to remember them. Characters in the future continue to monitor temporal distortions, and infer from the various disasters which occur that Bubba is continuing to wreak havoc with history, and Johnny has failed.

** This might be justified in his case. (Or [[MagicAIsMagicA as justified as any]] TimeTravel trope is, at least...) At various times it has been a rule in the DC universe, and the DINIVerse might use this as well, that the same person can't travel through time to a period in which another version of that person exists. If they do, the time-traveling version is [[IntangibleTimeTravel intangible]] and invisible. But Vandal Savage is immortal and exists for ''all'' of humanity's history and future. This makes direct time travel impossible for him (although there are ways to do whatever he wants indirectly), so MentalTimeTravel is the only option, and a phenomenon he's prepared for and used to, and no doubt there are other tricks that could be used. This rule is explicitly stated by Savage in "Hereafter", but is ignored in other parts of the DCAU, including two episodes of ''StaticShock'' and the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' two-parter "The Once and Future Thing".

** In ''Literature/{{Boneland}}'', Colin and the Watcher are playing out the same issues of loss and trauma, in much the same geological place but separated by up to half a million years in time. Both are struggling to work out what is happening to them according to their conditioning and cultural preconceptions. Garner even hints that {{Recursion}} is happening and they are somehow directly linked.
