* In ''Videogame/BlazBlue'', Phenomenon Intervention is an ability to [[RealityWarper replace an event with another possibility of the event]]. While some really powerful characters in the game have it, only 2 beings are capable of doing it to the whole world and retconning whole timelines: Takamagahara and Master Unit Amaterasu. [[spoiler:The fourth game also reveals that Nine, one of the villains, has built a massive device called Requiem which lets her do this, though it's still imperfect.]]

** The Foundation also has closely-guarded possession of several ''Thaumiel''-class objects, almost universally capable of preventing or reverting back from even the worst [[ApocalypseHow K-Class]] scenarios. Several of them do so through Retconjuration.

** 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 [[Cloudcuckoolander herself]]. This is Delirium we are talking about.

* Main universe Loki's newer incarnation have their magic defined as ''mucking with the narrative'' yes this means exactly what it sound like. They could theoretically do ''[[RealityWarper anything]]'', in practice however they're limited by the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality and various butterfly effects. Example: So you've retconjured a girl into your uncle's past to create a weakness and defeat him in the present? (''Fear Itself'') That created a woman with very little choice or characterization who'll be rightfully pissed with you. (''Everything Burns'')

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.

* ''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).

* Doing this is [[spoiler: Tsukishima]]'s entire schtick in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''.

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''.
