* Played with, but averted, with the MarvelComics villains Kang the Conqueror and DoctorDoom. Kang, the UrExample of the ConquerorFromTheFuture, was for some time believed to be a future version of Doom, and the two worked together (and double-crossed each other) on many occasions, culminating in the ''Secret Wars'' maxiseries, in which Doom had Kang disintegrated by [[DoAnythingRobot Ultron]] (he got better with the help of a RealityWarper). Later, however, it was revealed that Kang wasn't really Doom's future incarnation. He was actually either Mister Fantastic's father or distant cousin or some such thing ([[TangledFamilyTree it's confusing]]).

** One episode had a cutaway gag showing an alternate ending to ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' where Marty figures that since he's about to [[RetGone fade into oblivion]], he might as well have sex with his mother in the past. The result is that in his picture of himself and his parents, they're replaced with a disfigured and retarded Marty and the "To Be Continued" card is replaced with "To Be Contondered".

* ''{{Achron}}'': The alien Grekim are able to pull this off in gameplay (see [[http://www.achrongame.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=2903&hilit=Grekim+grandfather&start=20 here]] for directions how). It has [[AwesomeButImpractical little practical use]] though, so it doesn't happen often.

* ''IrregularWebcomic'': Adam and Jamie from ''Series/MythBusters'' attempt to do this. They screw it up, becoming each other's grandfather, and therefore their own great-great-grandfathers. Which, incidentally ''does'' prove that this trope can happen, which was the whole reason they attempted this in the first place. Myth confirmed!

* In the ''IAmWeasel'' episode "My Friend, the Smart Banana", Weasel and the banana have an intellectual discussion and conclude that if you travel faster than the speed of light, you become your own grandmother.

* Averted in the ''[[https://parahumans.wordpress.com/ Worm]]'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10286919/1/Recoil Recoil]]'' where, while young Danny Hebert did form a crush on his alt-daughter Taylor (he didn't know any better), she introduced him to his [[OneTruePairing future wife]] at the first opportunity. Also subverted, in that Danny's parents were trying to ''encourage'' the match.

* ''Predestination'', the film based on the Heinlein story in the literature section, except it takes the MindScrew a few steps further. Got a flow chart? [[spoiler: So the time agent is tracking a terrorist, and while doing so recruits a transman who turns out had sex with his female self, who then gave birth to him/herself. Said Time Agent takes the resulting baby to the orphanage to where said transperson was found, THEN is revealed not only to be a future version of the transman, but the terrorist he's tracking is a version of him even FURTHER down the line.]] No, don't worry, the headache will pass.

* Played to the extreme in the Creator/RobertAHeinlein story ''Literature/AllYouZombies'', [[spoiler: about a man who was both of his own parents. He was born a female, but was really a {{hermaphrodite}} and lost his female parts after giving birth. Then he went back in time and had sex with himself, in an attempt to save herself from that man who knocked her up and left her, then kidnapped his baby self, went back in time, and dropped it off at an orphanage. Every single significant character in the story turns out to be that one individual.]] ** [[spoiler: {{Lampshaded}} when the song "I'm My Own Grandpa" comes on the jukebox; he becomes angry and unplugs it.]]

* A well-known example is the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode, "Roswell That Ends Well", where Fry unwittingly becomes his own grandfather by the direct expedient of doing, as he puts it, "the nasty in the past-y". Surprisingly, this actually became a major plot point in some later episodes.
