* ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2'' has this a rule with the prime and fractured dimensions. The prime version can encounters its fractured version in one of those dimensions just fine and not suffer any consequences; but if the fractured version encounters the prime dimension in the prime dimension, the fractured self disappears. [[spoiler: In the case of Alternate Milla, her appearing in the prime dimension is what is preventing Prime Milla from reappearing. It's only when Alternate Milla sacrifices herself, that the other may appear.]]

* Other [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths Pre-Crisis]] DCComics stories, most notably in the ''{{Superman}}'' mythos, have time travelers turn into phantoms if they arrive somewhen they already exist. A memorable use of this concept occurs in ''ComicBook/WhateverHappenedToTheManOfTomorrow'', when a young Supergirl has traveled to the story's present (which is shortly after her death in ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths), and casually asks her cousin why this ''hasn't'' happened.

* One ''Series/TimeCop'' episode has a retired cop from the future use the time machine to try to recover the loot from a criminal he once caught. He ends up taking his past wife hostage, causing his past self to start to approach him. The future cop warns him of the consequences (see the Film section), but the past self is willing to let both of them be disintegrated to protect his wife. This doesn't happen, though.

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'': Averted in the episode [[Recap/TheFlash2014S1E23FastEnough ''Fast Enough.'']] [[spoiler: At the scene of his mom's murder, ''three'' versions of Barry Allen were actually present -- his present self, his future self, and his child self. While Kid!Barry was whisked away too quickly to recognize either of them as himself, Present!Barry and Future!Barry make eye contact and recognize each other.]] Somehow, this doesn't break reality.

Also happens later, when Barry deliberately travels back in time to [[spoiler:get help with the speed equation from Eobard Thawne. At the end of the episode, Past!Flash ends up helping Present!Flash get back home. The season 2 finale ends with Barry traveling back to his mother's murder ''again'', but this time, he stops it, causing the Barry from season 1 finale to dissolve into thin air]].

** The original series has several stories where [[TheNthDoctor multiple incarnations of the Doctor]] were brought together in the same place at the same time, without any apparent ill effects to the TimeyWimeyBall that is the Franchise/{{Whoniverse}}. (Most of the time, this could be explained by the fact that the multiple incarnations aren't ''entirely'' the same person._
