* While it's hard to tell (since the game is currently in alpha), the plot of ''{{Achron}}'' will probably explore this. It's already been referenced on the developer blog before.

* Franchise/TheDCUTheDCU explored ''part'' of this with alternate timelines where good versions of Doomsday and Vandal Savage change things back; ironically back to where they are villains.

* TheDCU's second {{Chronos}} spent some time trying to change history so his mother wouldn't die in a car accident. He eventually realised that the only way to ensure this was to [[RetGone never be born]]. He still exists as a time traveller, but his history up to the point he found Chronopolis has gone.

* In ''Fanfic/MementoVivere'', a VideoGame/FinalFantasyX fanfiction, this is a main plot point of the story.
* A ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' SlashFic called [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9035781/1/Redo "Redo"]] explores this problem. Ed and Al, living TwentyMinutesInTheFuture from the end of the manga/''Brotherhood'', are sent back in time by a rogue alchemist to right before they traveled to Lior. They struggle with how they're now given the opportunity to save some people who died and situations they screwed up the first time, but also need to make sure everything that went ''right'' before does as well.

* The cost of salvaging anything at all of the original multiverse in ''CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' was to produce a new single universe and erase the original multiverse entirely from history. So, from a very real standpoint, ''[[PyrrhicVictory nobody]]'' [[PyrrhicVictory survived the original Crisis]] (except Superboy Prime and co., and maybe Power Girl and Psycho Pirate), and all the current heroes are temporal copies of the originals.

* The end of NeilGaiman's ''ComicBook/{{Marvel 1602}}'' sets right the circumstances that caused the temporal divergence that brought about the 'Age of Marvels' in the Elizabethan era. Thus, the timeline is overwritten, and history proceeds as necessary. The Watchers, however, step in and save the 1602 world as a pocket universe, kept in a glass globe by this version of Uatu.
