** In the ''Series/StargateUniverse'' episode "Time". The episode begins with a reset button having already been pushed, with the crew discovering a recording device sent back through time.

** The final episode of the series, "Meanwhile," featured a ''literal'' reset button that reset the universe to the state it was in ten seconds prior to the button being pushed. Since the button took ten seconds to recharge, it couldn't be used to travel back in time but could create a stable time-loop which - this being ''Futurama'' - is exactly what happens, at least prior to an invocation of Twilight Zone plot.

* Wiki/SCPFoundation entry [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-2000 SCP-2000]]. The article is filled with non-stop technobabble, as it actually goes and justifies how and why the whole thing works, and the security measures to keep it safe, but is otherwise played straight (with slight deconstruction, in that it takes about five decades of time and effort to restart humanity, more or less). The facility can rebuild humanity and its civilization. And it's already been used at least twice. According to the first appendum it's not functioning at the moment they hope to have it working again by 2020.

The Reset Button is any means by which previously occurring drastic events are made partially or wholly irrelevant by the end of the story. This is very common to American TV shows both live-action and animated, particularly from TheSixties through TheNineties in part because programming directors like to have the luxury of repeating episodes in any order, and in part because (prior to the advent of the internet) watching or catching up on a missed episode could be nearly impossible for viewers. This trope became less common as the web became more widespread, and as home media and streaming became more acessable. It is also a prime way of enforcing StatusQuoIsGod.

* ''Series/{{Merlin 2008}}'' has followed ''Smallville'''s example in many ways, even calling their show "An Arthurian Smallville". They also use the Reset Button just as much. Every time someone sees Merlin use magic, you know they're about to die, leave Camelot, or lose their memory. Also, every time it looks like King Uther might die, change his views on magic, or somehow lose his throne, the effect will be reset within two episodes. It's annoying, but an amusing game is to try to predict how the writers will get everything back to the [[StatusQuoIsGod Status Quo]] by the end of the episode.

* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' used a ResetButton on the episode The Locket, wherein Chrichton and Aeryn are trapped on a time-accelerated planet for decades. The reset button is in the form of Zhaan and Stark using their combined spiritual powers to allow Chrichton to reverse course, taking Moya back in time. This is only prevented from becoming a time loop by the fact that Zhaan and Stark remember the events of the episode, and get the crew to avoid the mist.
