* The canon ''Buffy The Vampire Slayer'' comic books feature such a book as a long term plot device. Due to many magical resets a book the good guys control is now the tome of magic and new rules written in it become the rules of magic. If they make sense with what came before. Making a normal human a mighty wizard would be rejecting but tweaking a wizard's powers would easily work.

* ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' establishes a difference between altering the timeline and rewriting reality itself. The first case has rules and consequences, while the second has none. Thus far, only one object is known to be able to do the latter - the [[PublicDomainArtifact Spear of Destiny]], which is why Rip and three of the JSA members split it and hid it across space and time. [[spoiler:The Legion manages to get the Spear and uses it to remake reality to suit their own desires: Thawne is now the head of S.T.A.R. Labs, having trapped the Black Flash, Darhk is the Mayor of Star City with magical powers, Merlyn has brought his family back to life and forced Nyssa to live a quiet life in the middle of nowhere, Snart and Mick rule Central City and can steal without consequences, and all the heroes (e.g. Barry, Oliver, John, Felicity) are dead. The Legends (minus Mick) have new lives either relegated into nothingness (Ray, Nate), working for Thawne (Jax, Stein), or working for Darhk (Sara, Amaya). There are only two known ways of destroying the Spear: throw it into an extremely-powerful reactor or use the blood of Christ]].

** Thankfully, [[spoiler:Applebloom hijacks the Rumors by fixing the cursed printing press after Diamond broke it and using the bit of Truth she'd been granted by Dark World Nightmare Mirror as the ink. This gives Applebloom the [[EndOfTheWorldSpecial ability to rewrite reality to such a point she becomes]] TheOmnipotent and even Discord at her mercy. She mainly uses this to repair the damage, but also makes the timeline a better place by changing bits of history for the better before relinquishing the power. In addition, since Nyarlathotrot was defeated and banished from the timeline, the curse cannot be recast, as he was the only one who knew how to do it.]]

He finds out just ''how'' literal when things like a misprinted age turn real. {{Hilarity Ensues}}... until he finally realizes that this must stop and invokes something on the order of the Epimenides Paradox to do so.
