* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'': a weaker version of this is the domain of Keine Kamishirasawa; she's able to "eat" the history of things, which changes the way people perceive the thing whose history was eaten. For instance, during the 8th game, she devoured the history of the human village so that they wouldn't be affected by the dangers of TheNightThatNeverEnds (she restored it later); this way, the village was invisible to pratically everyone, because people would be seeing a reality where humans never settled there in the first place (particularly powerful beings don't seem to be affected by it, though; [[RealityWarper Yukari]], for instance, wasn't affected at all by Keine's ability and could see the village and its inhabitants with no problems).

** Towards the end of the series, Delirium threatens Mazikeem to make her ugly and deformed in the way she had been since the start and retcon reality so she had always been that way. We don't know if she actually did or was just being a [[Cloudcuckoolander herself. This is Delirium we are talking about]].

Since quantum theory and magic are hard to tell anyway, look up Einstein-Rosen-Podolsky and Delayed Choice Experiment which come quite close to retconning history.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': [[spoiler:John]] gains the power to move through and alter canon during Act 6. This is called out as being different from time travel, which happens a ''lot'', in that it is not bound by the requirement to create {{Stable Time Loop}}s and can move through other universes and even into fictional contexts like ''Film/ConAir''.
** One-upped by the process of [[SinkOrSwimMentor learning how to control the power]], whereupon he dumps some oil into ''[[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003341 an Imagine Spot]]''.

* The ''Year of Hell'' two-parter in ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' has the Krenim timeship, with a RetGone cannon the ship itself is insulated from ([[spoiler: [[ResetButton unless the effect is triggered]] ''inside'' the ship due to damage sustained]]). The effects are limited to removing things from the timeline, but it can be modified to some things hit by while removing others (this is used for such things like removing a specific species while leaving their planet behind and inhabitable). The captain had spent 200 years desperately trying to undo the damage he inadvertently caused when he first used the ship... by doing pretty much the same thing, but with more careful calculations.

* Ultimate Loki's power in UltimateMarvel. He can shuffle space and time, insert or erase new identities into history and alter perceptions. He's restricted by being detected by Odin if he uses too much power, so he settles for [[{{Gaslighting}} Gaslighting]] Thor to make him and everyone around think he's crazy.
