** In series 5 we are seeing "cracks" in time and space in almost every episode which release energy that are un-writing time, erasing things from existence to where they never existed at all. The Doctor implies these cracks are the result of a future event where someone may have caused a reality-breaking paradox, and he's very much right -- the SeasonFinale sees them trying to avert [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the end of]] ''[[UpToEleven time]]'', as a result of the damage done to the universe by [[spoiler: the TARDIS explosion]].

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had an episode where Brian and Stewie are catapulted outside time and space due to a mishap with Stewie's time machine, and return to reality by detonating the return pad. Arriving home, Stewie discovers that the detonation that sent them back home was actually the Big Bang, and he and Brian created the universe through a StableTimeLoop. However, this is the exact moment when Stewie's evil brother Bertram enacts a plan to prevent Stewie's birth by travelling back in time and killing his ancestor. This results in reality beginning to break apart as the paradox wipes out existance. Stewie and Brian just manages to escape into the past and avoid getting erased. [[spoiler: They ultimatly fail in saving the ancestor (Leonardo Da Vinci) but Stewie saves the universe by remaining behind in the past to pass on his DNA via genetic splicing, then returns to the present via TheSlowPath by freezing himself in a cryogenic pod buried where the Griffins house will one day be built]]

to.[[labelnote:*]]Think about it really hard. If a Reality Breaking Paradox were to exist, then it would destroy reality. Which would cause it not to exist, and therefore for reality to exist. Or even that if reality were to cease existing, it would cause a paradox in that there has to be a reality in which reality existed (for something to happen to undo everything), and because reality encompasses everything that has been or could ever be, the reality in which reality existed has to be itself. Basically, you are presently in reality, which means that nothing will have or can ever take away this reality. Stop thinking now and take some tylenol.[[/labelnote]]

-> ''"If the Universe came to an end every time there was some uncertainty about what had happened in it, it would never have got beyond the first picosecond. And many of course don't. It's like a human body, you see. A few cuts and bruises here and there don't hurt it. Not even major surgery if it's done properly. Paradoxes are just the scar tissue. Time and space heal themselves up around them and people simply remember a version of events which makes as much sense as they require it to make."''

** There is also the incredibly old demon lord ''Pale Night'' who appears as a female humanoid wrapped in a shroud. The shroud is however not part of herself, but Reality's desperate attempt to hide her true form from the rest of the multiverse. She has the ability to shed the shroud for a short moment and having a very strong WeirdnessCensor is the only thing that prevents everyone from being annihilated by trying [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm to make sense of what they saw.]] That's right, Pale Night's true form is so hidious and evil that ''[[UpToEleven Reality itself]]'' might GoMadFromTheRevelation of seeing it.
