* In ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors,'' [[spoiler: June/Akane Kurashiki has this ability, and can in fact explore multiple possibilities. All the game's MultipleEndings are essentially just her SaveScumming in the future, trying to find the sequence of events that leads to her own life being saved in the past/present.]]
** The sequel, ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'' takes the concept even further, [[spoiler: The entire Nonary game exists to train Sigma and Phi in mental time-travel so they can go back in time and stop an outbreak of a virus.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/YourName'', [[spoiler:the big {{Reveal}} is that Taki and Mitsuha were actually three years apart, which is part of the reason their attempts to meet face-to-face (or at least to speak to each other via cellphones) always failed. The other part is that Mitsuha [[DeadAllAlong died when a passing comet destroyed her town]].]]

* In SergeyLukyanenko's ''Literature/ALordFromPlanetEarth'', the main character finds himself on an alien planet in the middle of an invasion. He is given a pair of [[{{Precursors}} Seeder]] artifacts with an unknown function. During the first confrontation with the BigBad, one of his new friends is brutally killed, and the BigBad is an inch away from slicing the protagonist open. In desperation, he breaks one of the pencil-shaped crystals and [[TimeStandsStill time freezes]], while he hears a voice telling him of a "temporal event" of some sort. He then finds himself several hours prior with full knowledge of things to come. The only difference is he only has one artifact left. He also finds that it's pretty difficult to try to change things, as the universe keeps trying to maintain continuity. He does manage to save his friend (twice, by using the other crystal) and alter the final fight with the villain to strike him while the BigBad is moving in for the kill. Also, physical time travel is possible as well.
