** Any and all multi-Doctor stories ("The Three Doctors", "The Five Doctors," "The Two Doctors", [[spoiler:"Dimensions In Time"]], "Time Crash," "Day of The Doctor" and "Twice Upon A Time") have this baked in. Obviously, the previous Doctors are not going to die in the episode, as they have to survive to regenerate into whomever the current Doctor is... However, as a result of the TimeyWimeyBall, [[DoomedByCanon they won't remember it ever happening...]]

* The dangerous scenes in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017'' would be rather tense and dramatic if the eighth season of ''Friendship Is Magic'' weren't already announced beforehand. Despite the dangerous situations they face, the ponies end up totally [[ForegoneConclusion fine by the end of the movie]].

* Similarly, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'' takes place in the same universe as the ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries Batman Arkham]]'' video games, and since it takes place specifically before the events of both ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' and ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' any character who appears in the games is going to come out fine, including Batman, Harley Quinn, the Joker ([[spoiler: despite apparently dying by the end of the film]]), Riddler, and Deadshot.

Added DiffLines:

* For ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', WordOfGod has stated that the [[WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie first movie]] is chronologically the end of the series, which means for the series proper, any attempt at Plankton getting the Krabby Patty formula will fall flat, as he doesn't succeed in [[TeamRocketWins getting the formula]] until the events of the movie.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'': Although its canonicity is debated, ''LiveActionTV/AFairlyOddMovieGrowUpTimmyTurner'' shows that Timmy still has Cosmo and Wanda at age 23, indicating that in the main series, any threat of Timmy losing them is mitigated.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'', [[GameplayAndStorySegregation being a prequel]] set decades before the events of the other ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' games, punishes the player if he [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim kills Ocelot]] (a key character from the chronologically later games) by proclaiming that the player has caused a {{time paradox}}.

Killing Ocelot will also net a time paradox in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' where this time, he's your ally.

** In the same game, [[spoiler: Huey is revealed to be a traitor to Diamond Dogs, [[MoralEventHorizon by unleashing a second wave of vocal parasites on unsuspecting soldiers]]. Much ado was raised for his execution, [[KickTheSonOfABitch for his betrayal of the highest order]]. Venom chooses instead to [[CruelMercy disable his artificial legs, and exile him on a raft aboard Seychelles sea]]. If we didn't know during Metal Gear Solid 2, from Otacon himself, that Huey went into clinical depression slowly and committed suicide in 1997, he possibly ''would'' have been executed.]]

** Downplayed somewhat with the alternate player character, Toko Fukawa. She is offhandedly mentioned as being still alive in the epilogue of [=SDR2=], so any perilous situation that the player may find themselves in is mitigated by the knowledge that she survives.

** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVPhantomPain'' introduced a young boy, Eli, who becomes a (somewhat) enemy to Diamond Dogs later in the game. Venom and Skull Face are separately dedicated to capture and kill(respectively), the young boy. This seems unimportant but played straight by the fact that [[spoiler:Eli is a [[StartOfDarkness young Liquid Snake]] .]]

** Same with EVA. Killing her will also net a {{time paradox}}, probably hinting her mission to retrieve the Philosophers' Legacy. [[spoiler: She will go on to become a volunteer at the Les Enfantes Terribles project, where she gives birth to Solid and Liquid Snake. Yes, without her, there is no Metal Gear.]]
** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'', Miller tries to take Big Boss down with a TakingYouWithMe moment, but Big Boss pulls his grenade and saves them both. Miller will go on to become Solid Snake's master, [[spoiler:and is killed by orders of Liquid.]]
** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPortableOps'', all tension of Roy Campbell and Null[[spoiler:Gray Fox]] dying in the game is removed,as Campbell serves as Snake's MissionControl, and [[spoiler:Gray Fox]] becomes a member of FOXHOUND.

** Subverted when [[spoiler:Salvatore Maroni]] dies in the season 1 finale, long before [[spoiler:Harvey Dent becomes Two-Face]] which was his doing in the comics. Also [[spoiler: Barbara Kean]] is killed in the Season 3 finale, obviously never becoming [[spoiler: Jim Gordon's wife and mother of {{Batgirl}}]].
