* ''Manga/InuYasha'': The time portal well can take people 500 years back and forward in time, but ''only'' that. If a day passes in the past, a day passes in the future. It's played more for laughs than anything, as Kagome's grandfather makes up ridiculous diseases that Kagome supposedly has as excuses for her missing school.

* {{Justified|Trope}} and used as a plot point in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages]]'', as the BigBad has stopped time at high noon around the construction site for the final dungeon. No matter how quickly you progress, [[YouCantThwartStageOne you can't stop the tower from being built.]]
** However, rather than appear completed instantaneously to your present self, the tower being built in the past progresses in increments as you progress through the plot.

* In ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'', every time Sissel does some time-travelling and returns to the present after averting someone's fate, it's always later than when he left (e.g., he left at 7:02 and returned at 7:21). [[FridgeLogic The use of this trope doesn't make sense upon analysis, though]], because Sissel isn't forced to travel X minutes/hours back and forth every time, but always to the same point in history: 4 minutes before a given person's death. He could wait ten hours to time travel and save their life and it wouldn't make a difference in the success of said mission.

* The time traveler's own body. While most works don't use such a long timeframe, the absolute maximum amount of time someone can spend time-traveling is the same as their remaining life span.

* Completely thrown out the window in the ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episodes ''The Once and Future Thing.'' The timeline was described as [[TechnoBabble becoming fluid]], with different time periods merging together because of how much it was screwed up.
* An episode of BikerMiceFromMars had the BigBad (probably some kind of alien named after cheese, but who cares?) travelling into the past to demolish the city by digging giant holes where it would be built. Whenever he finished digging a hole, it would appear ''at the same time in the future'' in the middle of the city. Then again, what did you expect from a show about ''biker mice from Mars''?

* In the WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures episode "J2" Jade's FutureBadass self travels back in time to prevent [[BigBad Shendu's]] release in her time. She explains that because time is still moving forward in both eras, they have to destroy the artifacts before midnight since future Jackie and Uncle are being held prisoner so Shendu can finish them off when he's freed.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3643368/1/Back-I-Go Back I Go]]'' Harry did a number of things in the past which altered the present, but instead of people's memories changing all at once they got an "update" after certain significant past interactions with Harry.

* The Season 1 finale of ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' has the [[BigBad Vandal Savage]] planning to set off three different {{Doomsday Device}}s in three different time periods simultaneously. Yes, simultaneously. And the heroes' plan to stop him is to split up into three teams, each heading to a different time period, so they can kill Savage in three different time periods, also simultaneously. And they're ''able'' to kill Savage, despite him normally being immortal, because being exposed to the radiation from all three {{Doomsday Device}}s simultaneously will render him mortal, even though he's never around more than one of the {{Doomsday Device}}s in any given time period. [[{{MST3K Mantra}} It's ... probably best not to think about it too hard.]]

* Sort of Justified in ''WebComic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'' when it is shown that leaving for months and coming back only five minutes later is a bit troubling for the person who left.

* Almost justified in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. At the end of ''The Storm Breaker Saga'', it's revealed the time travelling in this and previous stories has worked as follows: [[spoiler: First, the demon K'Z'K is blast into the past accidentally, taking with him Gwynn's soul, leaving Gwynn's body in a coma in the present. He "cuts a noticeable trail" through time and space. Next, Riff's malfunctioning time machine sends Zoe and Torg into the past along that same trail (though it seems they actually arrive somewhat after K'Z'K, which would probably be a blatant example of this trope). They fight and temporarily destroy K'Z'K in that time, whereupon Gwynn's soul returns through time to her body to the present. In the present, Riff and Dr. Schlock have been trying to figure out a way to go after Torg and Zoe for some time, not knowing what time they went to. When Gwynn regains consciousness, she is able to report seeing them, and Riff travels along the trail her soul left, thus explaining why he only arrives in the time after Torg and Zoe have defeated K'Z'K. The question that remains unanswered, besides of why Torg and Zoe don't appear in exactly the same time as K'Z'K, is: why didn't Gwynn's soul return to the time when it left her? One theory is that Gwynn's soul had to maintain a chronological parallel with the physical component.]]
** This crops up again later when [[spoiler: Gwynn's soul is swapped with that of Siphaniana of the ancient kingdom of Mohkadun. Gwynn and Siphaniana remain swapped in their respective eras for exactly the same amount of time. The "chronological parallel" hypothesis once again seems to fit.]]

* Of all things, ''FamilyMatters'' did this. In the second episode involving Urkel's time machine, Urkel and Carl were trapped in the past, with Harriet back home in 1997 wondering where they had run off to.
