* In ''VideoGame/QuantumBreak'', excessive exposure to [[ToxicPhlebotinum chronon particles]] of a TimeMachine can cause a mental and excruciatingly painful physical disorder known as "chronon syndrome", and can even cause sufferers to [[spoiler:become [[HumanoidAbomination Shifters]], who can only act in frozen time and, if they ''can act in normal time like [[GreaterScopeVillain Martin Hatch]], are in constant agony in that situation]].

* In ''Film/{{Primer}}'' excessive time travel causes strange physical problems in the protagonists: mysterious bleeding from their ears and deterioration of their handwriting. WordOfGod is that this is also a case of CloneDegeneration.

* This becomes the whole point from the second book of the saga written by the Spaniard writer JJ Benitez' ''El Caballo de Troya'': Due to an unseen side effect due to time travel, both protagonists will invariably die, since they will start to age quickly than usual as their genes were affected due to time travel.

** Then again {{Merlin}} used time travel to visit a place at five different times in its history, wove magic overlapping from those different point in history to weave a higher-dimensional construct. This was all for [[spoiler: creating the prison under the isle of Demonreach, which is practically inescapable to the deity-level horrors trapped within]].

*''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'':
** The sixth of the seven laws of magic is "Thou Shalt Not Swim Against the Currents of Time", meaning no TimeTravel and it places heavy restrictions on divination. The reasoning is that the risk of a TemporalParadox is too heavy, and frankly nobody knows what would happen if one did.

This was all for [[spoiler: creating the prison under the isle of Demonreach, which is practically inescapable to the deity-level horrors trapped within]].
** WordOfGod states that Harry will eventually have to break all the laws of magic as he works to protect the world. There has been a subtle hint in ''Literature/{{Changes}}'' that he may have the rule against time travel "already".
** The next planned book has the working title of ''Mirror, Mirror'', which involves an alternate version of Harry, and likely involves time travel to get there. The alternate Harry differs fundamentally from [[ButterflyOfDoom one key decision]] and everything flowing from that.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has this crop up fairly often. Since the main character is a time traveller from a species that not only mastered Time Travel, but actually ''invented'' it, who're pretty much defined by it, what with being called 'Time Lords' (though it is all but stated that Time Lords are, in fact, a higher caste in Gallifreyan society and it's hinted that you don't necessarily have to be Gallifreyan to become a Time Lord). Ergo, they weaponised it. Examples include the De-Mat Gun, which quite literally erases its target from space and time, never having existed. And then there was the Time War.
** Looking at the Time Vortex is a bad idea. 8 year old Time Lords look into the Untempered Schism, seeing the Vortex, and either get inspired, go insane (like the Master) or run away (like the Doctor). This is a relatively mild effect, because this is a species that's evolved for billions of years to adapt to time travel. Others, like Margaret the Slitheen, aren't so lucky. [[spoiler: She got deaged and transformed into an egg.]]
** Also, absorbing the power of the Time Vortex is a bad idea for you and anyone in your way. It'll turn you into an all-powerful god with total mastery over space and time, capable of vaporising a Dalek Empire with the wave of a hand and permanently resurrect someone with a thought, but it will also burn you alive.

* In ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'', the black hole Gargantua causes severe TimeDilation near its event horizon thanks to UsefulNotes/{{relativity}}. Racing against the clock to find a new home for humanity on Earth, the crew of the Endurance, including Cooper, a pilot anxious to get back to Earth in time to reconcile with his daughter, opts to travel to a planet close to the black hole's gravity well, where time has slowed to a crawl - [[spoiler: seven years per hour]]. A trip lasting a few hours costs them [[spoiler: 23 years]] on the outside, to the anguish of the crew. Later, with fuel dwindling, the ship must perform a risky flyby of the black hole's event horizon, in which [[spoiler: fifty years pass in a matter of minutes. Cooper misses nearly the ''entirety'' of his daughter's adult life due to TimeDilation.]]
* In ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', Kitty Pryde's MentalTimeTravel works by projecting one's consciousness into their past self long enough to alter the past. However, transferring a consciousness back too far into the past puts too much stress on the mind of the traveler, meaning that the only one capable of doing so is Wolverine, whose mind can heal as it is damaged. Furthermore, if the connection is broken at the wrong time, the changes that the traveler made in the past take effect, meaning that changing the wrong thing could potentially leave the surviving mutants worse off in the new timeline.
* In the 2006 film ''Film/DejaVu'', [[spoiler: passing through a window into the past is possible, but exceedingly dangerous to living beings.]] Special Agent Carlin plans for this by [[spoiler: teleporting himself into an ER with instructions to resuscitate him.]]

* The directors cut of ''Film/TheButterflyEffect'' reveals that Evan suffers minor brain damage every time he majorly changes the past, resulting in severe migraines and nosebleeds as he gets the extra memories (often 20 years worth) burnt onto his existing ones. On the other hand, he's GenreSavvy enough to realise that repeated time travel might ultimately kill him, causing him to intentionally think through what he wants to change before each trip.
