* In ''Literature/TimeEnoughForLove'', this is how archprotagonist Lazarus Long hopes to survive and prosper in the 1920's United States, since that's when he grew up and he has extensive period and personal knowledge of the era. Two things foil him: first, he arrives too early due to a miscalculation and winds up in 1916, on the cusp of U.S. involvement in WorldWarOne. Second, he falls in love with his mother Maureen and, in a [[LoveMakesYouDumb misguided attempt to impress her]], enlists in the army. However, he does entrust to Maureen a wealth of information on the future history of the United States in that timeline, allowing her to quietly abet several key events that help things [[YouAlreadyChangedThePast turn out the way they should]].

** Repeated in the sequel, ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward''... well, [[MindScrew kinda]]. [[spoiler: The purpose of the second Nonary Game was Akane teaching Zero how to alter the past using MindSwap on his younger self, so that his younger self would get the experience necessary to survive another Nonary Game which he would've been a part of had he not swapped minds with his older self, who would know how to survive the Decision Game in ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'', thereby preventing the release of Radical-6]].
