* 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.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', any time-travel that doesn't end in a StableTimeLoop results in the swift death of the time-traveler, as the universe actively destroys all timelines that branch off from the main one.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode "The Once and Future Thing: Weird Western Tales", Chronos breaks into a storage locker on the Watchtower by locally speeding up time so that a section of the door ages and disintegrates in a few seconds.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'': The game goes to great lengths to stress the dangers of having time-manipulation powers:
** Max's powers are immediately shown to be very taxing to use. If one tries to rewind too far, she complains that she feels sick and the screen disintegrates in the style of celluloid burning until you stop.
** Max starts getting [[PsychicNosebleed nosebleeds and migraines]] in Episode 2.
** Near the end of Episode 2, Max also manages to [[spoiler:[[TimeStandsStill freeze time entirely]]]], but the fallout from this incident leaves her unable to use her powers for several hours, and she expresses fear of becoming stuck in time in the following episode.
** After [[spoiler:creating a timeline where she is a member of the Vortex Club, William Price is alive and Chloe is in a terminal condition from a spinal injury]], Max decides that her ability to [[spoiler:alter history using photographs]] is far too dangerous because the ButterflyEffect is in full force.
** In Episode 5, Max suffers several [[PsychicNosebleed nosebleeds]] from [[spoiler:altering history from within history itself, which at one point leaves her 'between realities']].
