* ''VideoGame/QuantumBreak'':
** Early on, Paul travels through a time machine and winds up at [[TimeCrash the End of Time]] before using another machine to go to seventeen years in the past, living through all those years again. He takes advantage of his future knowledge to accumulate a lot of money quickly and found [[MegaCorp Monarch Solutions]] with the eventual aim of stopping the End of Time.
** More tragically, [[spoiler:Beth. She and Jack attempt to go six years back to retrieve the CFR, but Amaral sabotages the machine for Beth's transit, sending her to the End to convince her that time can't be changed. She manages to chase down Paul and also land seventeen years in the past, but since she went back with a specific goal and the time machine breaks after she exits it, she's forced to wait eleven years for Jack to show up. The stress of it [[TheWoobie almost breaks her]].]]

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': At the start of Season 5, most of the team except for Fitz are pulled through a Monolith and end up 74 years in the future. With the help of the alien responsible for this in the first place, Fitz puts himself in suspended animation in order to eventually rejoin them.

The alien himself, being a TimeAbyss, spends the whole time awake, guarding Fitz's suspended body and continuing to aid him when he wakes up.

** This is used to explain [[Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger Arnie]]'s aged appearance in this film. Sarah and Kyle use a time machine to travel from 1984 to 2017, but the T800 accompanying them can't go with them due to damage it sustained in a fight with a T1000 (as only living tissue can pass through the portal, and the flesh over Pops' hand had been melted off). Instead, he stays behind and waits for them to emerge in 2017, spending the years gathering weapons and intel to use against Skynet. Unfortunately this takes a toll on him, as despite being a cyborg his flesh still decays normally, [[FridgeLogic despite being able to regrow from scratch]], and his mechanical components start to break down, [[FridgeLogic despite supposedly being designed to last for 120 years]].

* In ''ComicBook/AtomicRobo'' [[spoiler:Dr. Dinosaur's time device ends up transporting Robo to 1870. To "get back" to the present, he (or rather, [[LosingYourHead his head]]) has to be put in a box that ends up stuck in Tesladyne's deep storage. In the present day, Lang and Bernard go through said storage and find the box, allowing them to revive him.]] The [[StableTimeLoop implications this has for the timeline]] are lampshaded and discussed, such as pointing out that if Robo ever went through his father's old stuff he'd have found [[spoiler:his own severed head]].

* Bishop of the ComicBook/XMen was stuck in the past during the team's mission to stop Legion. He therefore lived through the years as the ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse'' storyline unfolded until its "present day." While the entire [=AoA=] timeline was wiped out at the end of the event, Bishop's memories of his life there were inherited by his mainstream continuity self. Somehow.

** One arc sees the team accidentally deposited to the past, and stuck on the home planet of the Skrulls - just hours before Galactus was fated to destroy it. The team manages to escape, but they don't have any way to return to their present (and at the current moment in X-history in the time they were in, it would have been only shortly after both ComicBook/TheNewMutants were formed and ComicBook/{{Rogue}} first joined the team). Kitty uses the stolen spacecraft they escaped in to take a slower path back to Earth, while using a stasis field to keep them frozen until they arrive at the moment they left.
