** ''FanFic/TheRavensPlan'' is probably the crowning example, however, as Bran and Melisandre carry out a ritual to send a group of core characters back in order to avert the War of the Five Kings and other conflicts which weakened Westeros before the Night King's assault. However, it ends up [[GoneHorriblyRight working too well]], with the spell being supercharged and causing hundreds (if not ''thousands'') of people beyond the intended ones remembering.

Season 3 uses the StableTimeLoop variety of this trope. When Church is blasted into the past by a nuclear explosion, he uses the opportunity to try correcting each disaster that has occurred in the series up to that point. Of course, it turns out he's the cause of most of them, including his CO's mysterious heart failure, numerous injuries to his teammates, and his ''own'' accidental death ("Oh my god! ''I'm'' the team-killing fucktard!"). When his every attempt to prevent the bomb from going off fails, he eventually gives up, makes sure a copy of himself is blasted into the future with his teammates, and delivers a bitter {{Aesop}} about accepting reality as it is.

** In Season 16, the Reds and Blues are given TimeTravel guns and told to "Fix the past to save the future". Separated by chance, they proceed to run amok through history and their attempts to do ''anything'' either create paradoxes or [[StableTimeLoop Stable Time Loops]]. [[spoiler: And it turns out that there never ''was'' a danger. The one who provided their guns was just playing a temporal joke, and its the constant time-travel that threatens the universe.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'': Nox, the first season's ArcVillain, has a desire to save the family that he lost 200 years before the show has [[TheDeterminator driven him]] to go from a simple watchmaker to one of the most powerful [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity (and insane)]] magic users alive. Unfortunately, while he is a skilled enough time mage to [[TimeStandsStill slow time to a stand still,]] he has so far been unable to actually travel backwards in time. He believes that this is [[TimTaylorTechnology a power requirement issue,]] and now seeks to drain enough wakfu from [[PoweredByAForsakenChild the plants, animals, and people]] of the world to save his family. One character mentions that he has drained entire countries dry over the years, and his current plan involves exterminating an entire race of people to gain the wakfu he needs. Grougaloragran thinks [[WrongTimeTravelSavvy this type of time travel is impossible]], and he'll probably just end up breaking the universe if he tries. Nox, however, is [[TheUnfettered long past caring]]. [[spoiler:Turns out it ''is'' possible. Too bad the wakfu requirements were far steeper than Nox estimated -- the wakfu he spent centuries gathering was only enough to facilitate a ''twenty minute'' time jump.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', episode "The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker". Timmy's attempts to stop his teacher from growing up to become a fairy-obsessed maniac result in him lamenting, "[[StableTimeLoop NO! This is exactly what I was trying to]] ''[[StableTimeLoop prevent!]]''" To clarify [[spoiler:Timmy finds out Crocker had fairies (''his'' fairies in fact) in his childhood and was actually quite beloved by the town. But at the ceremony they were throwing for him, Timmy accidentally reveals them to the whole crowd. Granted it wasn't his fault though as Cosmo turned the power to the mics back on in his usual bout of stupidity. And even then the original timeline would've had Cosmo stupidly blurt out their existence anyway. Say the least it all went downhill after that.]] At least he stopped the election of [[UsefulNotes/RichardNixon President McGovern]].

* Done in ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'', with heavily debated success. A robot, the Blue Senturion, came from a thousand years in the future to warn the heros about a war two years later... and was intercepted by the villains, who took the message, and deleted it from his memory. Not only did the war still happen, but it happened a year earlier than scheduled. On the one hand, an all-out win for Team Evil was averted, but on the other, [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace it still didn't]] [[HeroicSacrifice end very]] [[BittersweetEnding happily]].

** Another example in ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'', with [[SixthRanger the Omega Ranger]], who comes from the future to make sure the heroes win. The drawback being that he ends up being locked between his morphed form and a ball of light- Because they had no budget for a real actor.

* This is the plot of the Italian comic book ''Lilith'': in the far future humanity has been banished from the surface of Earth by the Triacanto, a parasite that dwelled inside human bodies for millennia until, in the Great Germination, it emerged and took over the surface, and mankind's only hope is to send Lyca (who takes the name Lilith during her mission) back in time to cut off any line of growth by extracting it from the various [[PatientZero Patients Zero]] before they can infect more people-and to hell to any alteration to history she has to do to reach her target (indeed, the ''only'' time she doesn't change history in some way is her first stint in WorldWarI, when anyone she kills would have died at that time anyway during the Battle of Caporetto).
