* Much like the aforementioned ''Void Trilogy'', in ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'', it's ''possible'' to send yourself back in time -- but it would require all the energy in the universe. Mell only uses it to send a message back, but... [[spoiler: Later, when Dave and Helen's daughter uses it, she explains that now they just siphon the energy from other universes where they probably don't want to exist as much.]]
-->'''[[spoiler: President]] Mell Kelly''': With the push of a button, I will destroy the universe. Yes, it's been a lifelong dream of mine.

* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', the big reveal about [[spoiler: Homura]] is that her wish turned her into one of these. [[spoiler: [[GroundhogPeggySue Over and over again.]]]]
* Similar to ''Madoka'', ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' reveals in the second season that the reason for all the multiple arcs is that [[spoiler:Hanyuu and Rika are resetting the timeline over and over in an attempt to avoid the many, ''many'' {{Bad Ending}}s]]. Each time, they are the only ones who remember everything, although some of the other characters start to retain vague memories.

* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2636963/1/Harry_Potter_and_the_Nightmares_of_Futures_Past Nightmares of Future Past]]'' is probably the best of this sort. 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.

* For some reason, this is a fairly popular topic for NSFW fiction on the [[TheInternetIsForPorn seedy side of the Internet]]. That genre being [[WishFulfillment what it is]], these protagonists rarely manage to avoid the MartyStu pitfall.

** In second place 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 [[DeadFic 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.
** 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 several major arcs, and even those still haven't broken [=TheVictor=]'s record.[[/note]]

* In ''Film/StargateContinuum'', Ba'al uses time travel to go back seventy years and make a huge number of changes, resulting in him becoming the leader of all the Goa'uld, with almost the entire galaxy enslaved, reinforcing his status as a ''DangerouslyGenreSavvy'' villain

* ''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; in fact, the vast majority of them dead-end before or during the Alabasta arc (1/5 of the series). But you can't exactly blame people for continuing to try their own hands at it, considering the fact that the four most popular fics in the fandom are ''all'' Peggy Sue fics:
