* 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.

** It turns out [[spoiler: Whis]] has this as a power. As opposed to other versions of time travel in this universe which simply create an alternate timeline (like Future Trunks'), they can simply rewind time for up to three minutes and undo whatever just happened. [[spoiler:Since the first instance was Freiza blowing up the earth and killing almost everyone else simply because they took a little toolong to kill him, this was a very good thing.]]

* In ''Series/TheLibrarians2014'', the GroundhogDayLoop episode "...And the Point of No Return", in which the team were trapped in a building running on video game rules, had Ezekiel (who was the "player", and therefore retained his memory) maturing over the course of the loop due to seeing his friends repeatedly die, and knowing that he was the only person who could keep track of what was going on, to the point where he eventually performed a HeroicSacrifice to save the team. Cassandra was able to being him back by "restarting the game", but this "unsaved" Ezekiel had no memory of anything after the loop started, and didn't really believe the team when they told him because "that doesn't sound like me".

* GreenLantern: Rebirth and TheFlash: Rebirth both do this by way of taking the old SilverAge stars of both series (Hal and Barry respectively) and putting them back into the starring role. GreenLantern in particular felt like this, due to the major Retcon of Parallax being necessary for it to work and bringing back the entire Green Lantern Corps.
