** In ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward'', [[spoiler:there are at least two. The first occurs in the path where the old woman does not die -- upon nearing the end of the path to Phi's ending, Sigma and Phi go back in time and save her, thereby setting up the timeline in which she lives. The second one is the cycle Sigma and Phi are going though, as explained by the diagram in the true ending route. However, the characters are actively trying to ''break'' the stable time loop, [[MindScrew which is why they set it up in the first place]]]], which continues on into the third game, ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma''.

*** One depends on the player's actions, but [[spoiler:Phi will betray you at a critical juncture, in revenge for you betraying her at that same juncture in an alternate branch]]. It is ''extremely likely'' that you will play this branch before [[spoiler:the branch where you actually commit this betrayal]], and only do the latter at all because the first spoiler is blatantly {{railroading}} you into it, because without that as motivation, it would be completely ridiculous, cruel, and out-of-character. That said, if you did decide to be ridiculous and [[spoiler:betray Phi]] first, then no time-loop is involved.

*** Creator/IsaacAsimov and Creator/ArthurCClarke both [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dead_Past tried]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Light_of_Other_Days that]]. Problem is, the past starts a microsecond ago, so it effectively ends any notion of privacy.

* ''FanFic/TheMonkeyDHaruSeries'': In ''Prisoner of Azkaban'', it's revealed that the reason why the Wizarding World knew Harry Potter was alive during his ten-year long disappearance is because Haru used his Portal-Portal powers to send a picture of himself back in time to Dumbledore.

** The first isn't a theory, though some of the underlying physics has yet to be proved. It's how we are currently time travelling, and the change in rate can be demonstrated empirically by looking at the clocks on GPS Satellites and seeing that time passes differently on them and the surface.

* ''Website/{{Starwalker}}'': Starwalker's drive allows her to travel through time. [[spoiler: This gets the attention of some SpacePirates who take over the ship. They force her to use her drive to go to the Solar System. Using the ability to travel in time, Starwalker gets them to the appointment 40 years early. They return to the present. However, the ripples of their passage causes strange measurements to be made of our sun. This gives Dr Cirilli the idea that a star step drive could work. In the "present" they meet the person who hired the pirates. She turns out to be the avatar for our sun. She hired the pirates to end the Starwalker experiment because the star step drive has the side effect of StarKilling.]]
