* In DC's short-lived [[TheNineties Nineties]] series ''Chronos,'' apparently a pretty ugly one happens at some point in the distant future, and then gets resolved. When the time-traveling hero, Walker Gabriel, wants to lay low for a while and avoid pursuit by other time travelers, he goes to this era. He's shown having a conversation at a bar, and in every panel, the person he's having the conversation with gets replaced with someone else as history is constantly shifting. Walker (who has RippleEffectProofMemory as one of his powers) just rolls with it and keeps the conversation moving.

''ComicBook/AstroCity'' has this as part of the BackStory of one of the early stories. A man has been having recurring dreams about a woman he's never met, but apparently knows everything about, and it's slowly driving him insane. One night, he learns what happened; a jilted supervillain built a time machine, and used it to challenge the god of time, and their conflict tore the original timeline to shreds. A number of superheroes patched the timeline together as best they could, and one of the things that vanished in the cracks was the woman, his wife (her grandparents never met because they were forced to put Air Ace's battle with the Barnstormers a day early).

** In the 1st Era, the Maruhkati Selectives, an extremist sect of the already extremist [[FantasticRacism anti-elf]] Alessian Order, carried out a ritual in attempt to [[SplitPersonality purge Akatosh of the elven aspects]] of the mythological basis that Akatosh was based on, the [[OurElvesAreBetter Aldmeri]] [[NobleBirdOfPrey golden eagle god]], Auri-El. This proceeded to break time and reality for a period of a 1008 years. Bizarre and impossible events occurred during this time; people gave birth to their own parents, some sources mention wars and major events which never happened according to other sources, the sun changed color depending on the witness, and the gods either walked among the mortals or they didn't. How could they measure that period of time? They used the phases of [[WeirdMoon Nirn's moons]], said to be [[GodIsDead Lorkhan's decaying "flesh divinity"]], to measure time as they were not affected by the event.

Even the [[TomeOfEldritchLore Elder Scrolls]] themselves cannot rationalize the conflicting events of the Middle Dawn. When the Scrolls are attuned to that time period, their glyphs are said to simply disappear.

** The Magna-Ge, aka "Star Orphans", are et'Ada ("original spirits") who fled Mundus (the mortal plane) along with their "father" Magnus (the God of Magic and "architect" of Mundus) during the creation of Mundus. The Magna-Ge are associated with various "untimes" and "untime folk". One of the most famous of the Magna-Ge is Mnemo-Li, aka Mnemoli the Blue Star and the "wayward daughter of [[GodOfGods Anu]]", who is visible even in the daytime sky during Dragon Breaks.

* ''WebVideo/TouchTheSkyrim'' has this occur in version one. BONE DOGG'S attempts to ragdoll the Greybeards in slow-motion causes the passage of time to vastly speed up, to the point where a day is passing in a matter of a couple of minutes. Learning ZA WARUDO and obtaining the Master Sword do not help.

* ''Literature/ElevenTwentyTwoSixtyThree'' makes use of the idea that if a time traveler changes the past too much, it will eventually destroy time itself (metaphorically, it is described as plucking the strings of an instrument until it vibrates itself to pieces). Jake manages to [[spoiler: save JFK from Lee Harvey Oswald]] only to return to his own time and find out that the Earth is well on its way to breaking apart into an asteroid belt and strange ripping noises are emanating from the sky, implied to be the sound of time collapsing. Jake's solution is [[spoiler: to create a brand new timeline where JFK was killed as before, and then never, ever time travel again.]]

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'': Happen at a few major events in the backstory when the dragon-god of time, known by many names but most prominently as Akatosh, is "tampered with" so to speak. They typically involve mortals attempting to use something of divine substance.
** In the first era, a remnant of a once-powerful organization of [[FantasticRacism anti-elf inquisitors]] carried out a ritual in attempt to purge Akatosh of the elven aspects of the mythological basis that Akatosh was based on, the elven golden eagle god Auri-El. The effort proceeded to break Time for a period of a bit over 1000 years, from 1E1200-1E2208. People gave birth to their own parents, some texts mention wars which never happened according to other sources, the sun changed colour depending on the witness and the gods either walked among the mortals or they didn't. How could they measure how long that period was? The Khajiit, a cat-like race on Tamriel whose mythology was heavily steeped in the two moons, used those as a basis for time, despite time otherwise being non-linear through this event's duration. (The moons are the "rotting corpse" of the dead creator god of the ES universe, and thus were unaffected.)
** The Numidium, a [[HumongousMecha giant brass golem]] built by [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent the Dwemer]] and powered by the Heart of Lorkhan, the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]], was essentially their refutation of the gods made material. Because of this, it frequently caused these when activated, such as the temporal toxic waste dump in Elsweyr where Tiber Septim's mages tried to figure it out after the Dunmer Tribunal gave it to him as a tribute, or the Warp In The West, where all the endings in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' essentially simultaneously happened and the temporal paradox was so straining on reality that a nuclear-like explosion occurred.
