** In third place is ''[[Fanfic/NewGamePlusOnePiece New Game Plus]]'' by [=DuncanIdaho2014=]. In this one, all nine members of the Straw Hat Pirates escape certain death from a Marine ambush thanks to Dr. Vegapunk's experimental time machine, sending their minds five years into the past. When time catches up to them, Luffy resolves to do things differently to ensure that they don't end up in that situation again, so he takes a leaf out of Whitebeard's book and begins recruiting more crews to follow him, forming the Straw Hat Armada. In canon progression, it's just begun the second saga (which ends with the Alabasta arc); it's a testament to the author's skills that it stands strong with the only three Peggy Sue fics to make it past Alabasta.[[note]]Or at least, the only ones to have done that ''without'' skipping huge amounts of story at a time, and even those still haven't broken [=TheVictor=]'s record.[[/note]]

* The fight against Galaxia doesn't go well, so Usagi uses the Ginzuisho to go back in time... and ends up a bit farther back than expected in ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4304858/1/ Third Time's The Charm]]''
** Technically, something similar happened in the manga canon.
*** Actually, the fic does acknowledge this. It's a sort of "back again -- ''again''" setup.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has a lot of Peggy Sue fics, being one of the most lengthy manga series ever created and the single most popular one, but besides the one-shot fics, none of them have ever finished. The vast majority of them dead-end before or during the Alabasta arc (1/5 of the series); in the entire fandom, there are only three fics which have made it beyond that.
** The first is ''FanFic/OnceAgain'' by [=TheVictor=]. In this one, Akainu kills Luffy's crew, Luffy gives up, and a couple of years later Admiral Coby sends him back with his Toki Toki no Mi powers. This fic was the first Peggy Sue ever to make it past the Alabasta arc, and while the author has long since vanished without a trace, he set the bar high by making it to the middle of the Enies Lobby arc (about 1/4 of the series) before that. ''Once Again'' subsequently became the most popular fic in the One Piece fandom, a title it held for at least two years afterwards, and it remains the second most popular fic in the fandom.
** The second is ''Fanfic/LuffysRenewedAdventure'' by F-ckthesystem125. This one has Luffy's crew massacred on the island before Raftel; only he survives, and he's imprisoned in [[HellholePrison Impel Down]]. He's eventually rescued by an old man with the power of the Open-Open Fruit, who offers him the chance to go back to the start of his adventures to ensure that the World Government does not attain the power it had before. Oh, and one thing sets this fic apart: said old man uses his powers to open Luffy's eyes to women. He's still an idiot in matters of love, but he's no longer oblivious. This fic is currently the longest fic in this category in regards to word count, third longest in regards to canon progression (currently being in the Skypiea arc), and is currently the most popular fic in the fandom.
** The final one is ''Fanfic/SecondWind'' by The-Lost-Samurai. In this one, Luffy and Zoro reach the end of the Grand Line…but everyone else dies shortly before that. Luffy and Zoro come back in time to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong, the method of which is revealed in Chapter 22. It's currently second in canon progression, and is one of the top 5 most popular fics in the fandom.
** While not yet an exception like the aforementioned three, there's one more Peggy Sue fic that bears mentioning: ''[[Fanfic/NewGamePlusOnePiece New Game Plus]]'' by [=DuncanIdaho2014=]. In this one, all nine members of the Straw Hat Pirates escape certain death from a Marine ambush thanks to Dr. Vegapunk's experimental time machine, sending their minds five years into the past.

** Similarly, in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', the story is always reset to October 4th, 1986. [[spoiler:Although in the end, the entire series turns out to be the main character theorizing about what happened during that time on Rokkenjima.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Logan gets sent back to the 1970's this way in XMenDaysOfFuturePast. Curiously, it is not his own life he needs to fix, but Xavier's; Logan is sent because the strain of being sent back so far would kill anyone who doesn't have a HealingFactor.

* The SchoolRumble fanfic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5589453/1/School-Rumble-Time-Rumble School Rumble: Time Rumble]] is this with a twist. Harima Kenji gets sent back in time to win Tenma's heart... but everyone's feelings toward everyone else in the series (both romantic and non) travel back in time with him. Needless to say the plot goes rediculously off the tracks very quickly, with barely a casual glance at the StationsOfTheCanon.
