* Creator/JamesCameron's career had stalled out with a failed attempt to direct the B-horror movie ''Film/PiranhaPartTwoTheSpawning''. This career bust and his subsequent bout with food poisoning resulted in a delirious episode and hospital stay in Italy. During this time he crafted another B-movie about [[Film/TheTerminator a killer cyborg on a rampage]]. That was pretty much the last time fail and James Cameron appeared in the same sentence.
* Creator/GeorgeLucas wanted to be a race-car driver, but a crash pre-empted that career path. He turned is attention to making movies instead.

** A great many writers/creators have a similar backstory. For example, Creator/JKRowling has stated that dealing with the loss of her own mother as well as coping with being an unemployed single mother led to many of themes that would become famous in ''Literature/HarryPotter''.

* In the ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' episode 'There's Something About Leo,' Leo, who had recently become [[RealityWarper an Avatar]], wanted to be able to convince Piper that the Avatars were not a threat [[spoiler:[[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans (or at least not as far as he was aware at the time)]]]] by revealing to her that he had become one. Though the other Avatars did not agree with this decision (on the grounds that it would be better for her and her sisters to discover on their own), they allowed him to try. This all led to a chain of events that resulted in Leo nearly being killed by a potion designed to kill Avatars. And, so, when Alpha and Beta used some of their gathered power to reverse time to just before Leo had told Piper about his alliegence, [[RippleEffectProofMemory he kept quiet about it this time.]]
* The 'freak mishap' ''Ranger 3'' suffers is the only reason [[Series/BuckRogersInTheTwentyFifthCentury Captain Rogers]] survives the oncoming nuclear war that wipes out much of civilization and is able to return to help a newly united Earth battle it's foes in the future.

* In ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' the faction from the future specifically state while they could've warned Earth about the initial Xindi attack that kills 7 million people, they figured it only be after the sneak attack that Starfleet would heed the greater danger. Notably it is the attack that leads to the ''Enterprise'' being retrofitted into a warship and the introduction of the famous photon torpedoes.

** In ''Film/StarTrek'' (reboot), it is implied that the ''Kelvin's'' destruction at the hands of the ''Narada'' led to Starfleet developed a beefed up and tough brand new ''Enterprise''. Also Subverted (And therefore ultimately zigzagged), in that one of the themes is regardless of how their starting points had changed (Particularly Kirk and Spock, whose circumstances had changed most significantly over the original universe), the entire main cast still wound up on the Enterprise in the same configuration as in the original universe

* ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'': It seems that no matter how many TimeTravel trips Skynet or TheResistance does, Judgement Day is doomed to happen. On a more positive note John Connor seems to be always fated to survive the event.
