* In the ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' movies, this is a major concern for Doc Brown, although more often than not he'll change the future (or past) for personal reasons. He believes, for instance, that if [[NeverTheSelvesShallMeet present!Jennifer encounters future!Jennifer]], one of two things will happen; Best case scenario, the shock of encountering what is obviously herself will result in an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acute_stress_reaction acute stress reaction]] that will cause her to faint. Worst case scenario? Future!Jennifer will affect present!Jennifer in an irreversible manner, resulting in a chain reaction of effect preceding cause that could destroy the entire universe. [[spoiler: She passes out.]]

* Hal Duncan's ''Literature/TheBookOfAllHours'' duology starts with a very TimeyWimeyBall sort of cosmology that gets utterly trashed by the end of the first book when [[spoiler:nanites loaded with the language of magic and haunted by the spirits of dead gods are set loose and pull a magical GreyGoo scenario on the fabric of space and time]]. The second book picks up with the protagonists wandering between pockets of stability and causality by [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy taking advantage of - and fighting against - stories and cultural narratives]] to get around.

** This trope is played ''very'' horrifically in the season 5 finale when [[spoiler:Starlight Glimmer's revenge plan of altering the past to stop the Sonic Rainboom from happening results in the timeline getting worse with each time, ending with a dead world fittingly known as the Ashland timeline.]]

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', the destruction of the Kanohi Vahi, [[MaskOfPower Mask of Time]], would cause a RealityBreakingParadox with the past, present and future all happening at the same time.

* In ''Webcomic/AndShineHeavenNow'' the [[Anime/ReadOrDie I-Jin]] [[TheTimeMachine Wells]] goes back in time to kill one of Integra's ancestors, [[Manga/VictorianRomanceEmma Prince Hakim]]. This causing things to rapidly get chaotic until Alucard briefly comes face to face with [[LightNovel/VampireHunterD D]] at which point time and the universe are completely torn apart and everybody from all possible timelines find themselves in the [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Whole Sort Of General Mish Mash]].

**An arguably more impressive incident happened from 1E1200-1E2208 where a fanatical religious sect managed to break time in an event called "The Dragon Break"[[note]]referring to Akatosh, the god of time who is usually depicted as a dragon[[/note]], a term later applied to all manner of temporal oddities including the aforementioned Warp in the West. 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. According to the Khajiit, who measure time based on the moons, this lasted 1008 years, [[MindScrew despite time being non-linear throughout its duration]].

* More of a time explosion than a crash, but in ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'', the collapse of the Celestial Ladder and the fall of Atlantis was such a magical clusterfuck that time itself grew extremely unstable around it. It's why no one's able to accurately place ''when'' Atlantis fell, despite certain mages being master-class postcognitives, why they can't even solidly place whether it actually happened in the past or was a future event cast backwards by the sheer weight of the event, and why they can't tell if anything like Atlantis will ever come into being again.

** {{The Arch|mage}}master Xaphan fumbled a Time spell so badly that his past got [[RetGone ripped out of history]] and dumped into the present, leaving him as a small crowd of alternate selves aged from 5 to 90 years old, while all evidence of his life before the accident ceased to exist.
