* Very explicitly set up and used in the {{Thanos}} storyline ''ComicBook/TheInfinityGauntlet.'' In the first couple issues, Thanos kills off half the universe, (including the entire Fantastic Four), and sets the Earth spinning away from the sun. In the last couple issues, this is all undone; [[spoiler:Nebula, who had been horribly tortured by Thanos]], took control of the Gauntlet and reset time to a point before [[spoiler:the torture began]].
* ''SuicideSquad'' had an interesting psychological version. Late in the run of the first series, cold-blooded DeathSeeker Comicbook/{{Deadshot}} hunted down and shot someone who was using his costume, then walked away, effectively killing and abandoning his Deadshot persona. In issues after that you can see him becoming more emotional and engaged, though no less homicidal. But in the final arc of the book, the costume is returned to him; he puts it back on (despite the ''bullet hole in the forehead'') and promptly reverts to his old behavior.

* [[spoiler:[[Characters/JoJosBizarreAdventurePart4 Kawajiri 'Kira' Yoshikage's]]]] Stand, Killer Queen Bomb Number [[spoiler: 3 (Bites the Dust).]] It's ability is to trap people within Time causes a repeating temporal time loop that only ends when Kira lets time resume normally or retracts [[spoiler: Bites the Dust]] to defend himself. While we don't see much use of it, within JoJosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle however, it manages to NoSell the Stand that has the power of NoSell, a Stand that [[YouCantFightFate can loop time itself]], and even a UltimateLifeForm.

* The fourth season of ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' ended with Will visiting Philadelphia and deciding to stay. The show had actually been cancelled, so this could've functioned as a last (however abrupt) episode, but a fan campaign got it UnCanceled. To get the status quo back on track, the fifth season premiere parodied and lampshaded the reset by having an NBC executive visit Will's Philly job, reminding him what the title of the show is, and kidnapping him to send him back to Bel-Air.

** [[DeconstructedTrope It's not always effective though.]] Someone asked why he didn't use this to save Maria. [[http://alwayshavingjuice.tumblr.com/post/124640201968 It turns out he did ''try to,'']] [[GoneHorriblyWrong but the whole thing went horribly awry and it truamtized him to the point he not only hasn't tried again since, he refuses to elaborate on what actually happened (though the comic implies he might have gotten shot and nearly died...)]]

At the end of the email, he decides the current email is the one he should be doing over.
