* Throughly [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]] in [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12407725/1/A-Question-of-When A Question Of When]] by [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1401424/vlad-the-inhaler vlad]], in which Romilda Vane (a StalkerWithACrush side character from Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince) is given nearly limitless MentalTimeTravel powers... which she uses to try and seduce Harry Potter. Exceptional use of language (tenses begin to switch constantly about halfway through as Romilda [[spoiler: begins to lose her grip on things like "where" and "when"]]) and is unique in how TimeTravel is treated as a MundaneUtility.

* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2636963/1/Harry_Potter_and_the_Nightmares_of_Futures_Past Nightmares of Future Past]]'' is the best of this sort, judging from its popularity; with over 20,000 favorites, it's easily the most popular fan fiction in the entire Harry Potter fandom. Although well-written, Harry's future knowledge and skills make him extremely powerful, extremely quickly. ~400,000 words and it's only at the start of the fourth year; the good news is that the author is still updating, albeit only a few chapters per year.

* ''FanFic/HogyokuExMachina'' has this premise with a few twists from the usual. It has [[TheHero Ichigo]] ''and'' [[BigBad Aizen]] travel from the final battle back three months to when Aizen betrayed Soul Society. Then within minutes Ichigo yells out that time travel shenanigans are going on, which other characters are quickly able to confirm. Finally, although Ichigo keeps his [[NextTierPowerUp power-ups]] while Aizen loses his, it ends up being a more even playing field than one would expect.

* Another one for ''Manga/DeathNote'': Silver Pard's [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4182475/1/Redivivus Redivivus]] sends Light back to his ''infancy'' with Ryuk still at his side, tasked with saving as many lives [[PersonOfMassDestruction as he took the first time around]]. Unfortunately for Light, he killed a ''lot'' of people, and (of course) [[TykeBomb L]] will always be around to make things difficult for him, even when he's just a frustrated EnfantTerrible who [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial ''definitely'' hasn't killed a single person ''this time'']].

Long since [[DeadFic dead]], but solidly in position as the third best ''Death Note'' fan fiction.

* In "Tapestry", an episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', Picard is about to die due to events that happened in his past, and [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens Q]] sends him back in time to relive his Academy days. Picard reacts to the situation which led to his death in a manner that negates his later death.

Q, having made his point, brings Picard back to the present and saves his life.]] [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane Unless it was]] AllJustADream.
** Also in TNG, "Cause and Effect" involved the characters realizing they were trapped in a time loop that always concluded with the destruction of the ''Enterprise,'' and Data managing to ''cause'' a Peggy Sue by sending a message into the next iteration of the loop enabling them to escape.
* While Sam of ''Series/QuantumLeap'' normally leapt back to fix other people's lives, he got to do this for his teenage self in "The Leap Home, Part 1". As the family problems he chooses to tackle aren't the things Al says he's supposed to change, his success isn't assured.
