* ''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 for those that refollow the journey of the Straw Hats, 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 of the top five most popular fics in the fandom, the only ones to reach (and surpass) 3000 favorites and followers, ''four of them'' are Peggy Sue fics, with the one that isn't being in fifth place overall:

** In second 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 with even the other Peggy Sue fics that have already made it past Alabasta.

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond the author's control, the story is on an indefinite hiatus.



** Another noteworthy one is ''Young and Built to Fall'' by fingers-falling-upwards. In this one, the time travelers are Luffy and Ace, and they return back to their childhood sometime after Sabo's "death." The first eight chapters of the story is original content that follows Ace and Luffy as they come to terms with their past and gather the necessary materials to prevent Blackbeard from ever coming to power, easing a few tragedies along the way. Everything after that is rehashing of canon with a few minor changes and very little detail, skimming or even skipping entire arcs. Updates are slow, but the story is ranked 13th overall, and the author is planning on making more AU changes soon.

* ''Fanfic/ForLove,'' a fic where Hinata was sent back fifteen years from a BadFuture where Akatsuki has won (after Naruto created a different timeline to canon by [[ForWantOfANail killing Nagato instead of sparing him]]) and tries to improve things starting from when she's five years old.

** It also provides an inversion when it turns out that they weren't so much sent back in time as [[spoiler:''swapped with their child selves'', which causes its own set of problems.]]

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12125771/1/Ah-Screw-It Ah, Screw It!]]'' is a ''Literature/HarryPotter''[=/=]''Series/StargateSG1'' crossover, though the latter doesn't start showing up until the fourth year. Harry winds up going back to the day of his Sorting right after beating Voldemort, and, armed with seven years' worth of extra knowledge, does his very best to become the ruler of Magical Britain -- while mercilessly trolling everyone within range.

* The ending of ''Hero in the Shadows'' (''Literature/Drenai'' / ''Waylander'' sub-series) by Creator/DavidGemmell. [[spoiler:Shortly before dying Waylander goes back two decades before the first novel to prevent robbers from murdering his family. Which turned an ordinary military officer into an unstoppable AntiHero assassin in the first place.]]

* 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.]]

* At the end of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' Link is sent back in time to his childhood so he can live out the seven years he lost while he was in his magic coma. Using his knowledge of the future, Link warns Zelda of Ganondorf's plans which prevents Ganondorf's rise to power.
* This is the entire premise behind ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask.'' Link arrives in an alternate world where the Moon is three days from crashing into the Earth. Every time the timer runs out, Link gets to go back in time to when he first arrived, and get going again, with the full memory of everything that happened last time.

* In ''Webcomic/WapsiSquare'', [[spoiler:Jin]] has already gone through the entire plot and failed [[spoiler:thousands of times]].
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'': In the ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'' parody "Torg Potter and the President from Arkansas", the Time Turner from the original is tweaked so that it rewinds the users in time, leaving them but no-one else with memories of what happened next. Instead of going back a few hours as the Hermione analogue intends, Torg uses it to return all the way to the beginning of the story, stomps on the bad guy in his animal form, and goes home, neatly avoiding any possible loose ends and negating the need for him to be involved in the affairs of that annoying school.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': Four months after John's death due to facing a ridiculously strong monster at low levels, Dave travels back in time, bringing ridiculously powerful weaponry and useful information for the past characters; this is the purpose of Heroes of Time in general, as a form of TrialAndErrorGameplay. Also, in a sense this is the purpose of [[ResetButton the Scratch]], albeit at a much, ''much'' larger and unpredictable scale.
** Dave's stunt does not go unpunished, however, as he [[spoiler: spends the rest of his life defending his premature self, almost not being brought along on the three-year journey to the Alpha session, and then presumably dying in the aftermath of [S] Game Over]]
* In the ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' supplemental ''Othar's Twitter'', Othar retires from Heroing and lives for thirty-six years on a deserted island with his wife. Upon her death, he goes back to the mainland and [[spoiler:finds that human civilization has been destroyed. Tarvek, the last known human alive,]] sends his consciousness back to before he retired to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong. How canon this is is so far unknown, but there has been nothing in the comic that contradicts it.
** Othar's Twitter is, in fact, considered canon.
