* [[TimeDilationField Time Dilation Fields]] are used extensively in Creator/LarryNiven's ''Literature/KnownSpace'' stories, most notably ''ARM'' and ''World of Ptavvs''. These are effectively time machines that only operate ''forward'' in time. The Slaver Stasis Field is a special kind of Time Dilation Field: inside one, time ''stops''.

* Several of Creator/RobertRankin's novels involve time travel, most often by means of a talking time-travelling Brussels sprout named Barry, who can share his powers with people if shoved in their ear. Largely, it seems implied that Barry is a ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' type 'time machine' - although physical locations rarely seem to be a bother. Barry was also cited to be the driving force behind Creator/HGWells' ''Literature/TheTimeMachine'', inhabiting a metal box in the back. Oh and he's [[spoiler:Elvis Presley's best mate.]]

Due to the obvious potential dangers of misuse, they are heavily regulated by the Ministry of Magic, and the two most important laws those who are issued them must follow are: [[NeverTheSelvesShallMeet never be seen by your past self]], and [[YouCantFightFate don't change time]] (this one may be moot, as Harry's actions in the past turn out to be a StableTimeLoop).

* ''VideoGame/TheSilentAge'' provides two kinds of time machines. The first and the most modern one is a small portable device of ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture''-variety that uses solar panels for charging. The more outdated kind is a large round capsule somewhat in between the same kind and the ''Film/{{Timecop}}''-variety in that it transports to the destination alongside the user but is programmed to return back to its present on its own after a while.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' has a combination of TARDIS- and ''Terminator'' style time machine in the sunken city of Thor. It can send the user anywhere in time and space but does not come with them. The game also features TimeTravel by [[AWizardDidIt magic spell]], but only two [=NPCs=] can use that spell.
* The Alpha and Beta suits from ''VideoGame/TimeShift''. The beta suit has the interesting adaptation that damage to the 'jump' drive allows you to use time powers.
** Actually its designed to work that way, the jump drive just lets you go back and forth much more greatly than the 10, 15 seconds you can in combat. It was designed for military purposes, presumably they would remove the jump feature so everyone couldn't screw with the timeline.



* ''Webcomic/BreakpointCity'' has a few of these. We've seen two cars, a portal, and a brain swapper.

* Danny from ''WebAnimation/BravestWarriors'' built a time machine so he could kick the crap out of his childhood bullies and tell his past self to wear more flattering clothing. When his friends expressed concerns that doing so might cause a TimeParadox or [[TimeCrash worse]], he dismissed them claiming that if anything went wrong his future self could go back in time to destroy the time machine. [[TemptingFate Immediately after he says this]], Danny's future self appears and smashes the time machine to pieces with a bat. Wallow claims this happens every time someone builds a time machine.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Homer travels back and forth between the dinosaur age and his own time in the ''Crime and Punishment'' segment in ''Treehouse of Horror V''. His time travels have consequences on future events, though, [[spoiler: [[CloseEnoughTimeline which haven't been solved by the end of the episode.]]]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', as implied in the page quote, featured a ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}''-type machine in one episode.

* ''Disney/{{Meet the Robinsons}}'' features a TARDIS-type time machine: It is essentially a jerry-rigged (flying) car like the [=DeLorean=], and can be driven like a regular car, but has instantaneous space/time-travel capabilities as well.
* The ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' movie ''A Sitch in Time'' had an ancient Time Monkey Idol that created a [[PortalToThePast Time Portal]] used by the villains, and unexplained Time Portal-opening watches for the heroes.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' has a few episodes with a TARDIS-style amulet, the Phoenix Gate. The characters can't use it to change the past [[StableTimeLoop because they didn't]]. Time travel's funny that way.



* In ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'' the ineffectual villain Jack Splicer had apparently built a working ''Terminator''-style time machine years ago. It only goes backwards and there's no forward counterpart since he was never able to provide sufficient power to make it useful (he could only go back two seconds in time).
* Squidward uses one of these in the ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' episode "SB-129", trying to go back to the past after being stuck in the future as a HumanPopsicle.

** The whole Golden Disc plot involves the original Megatron leaving a message for his descendants, expecting transwarp drives to develop to the point where they can be used to travel to a specific point in time in order to alter the course of the Autobot-Decepticon war.
** The ridiculous point is the episode where the Maximals start sending out transwarp probes to search all of time and space for Optimus Primal and his crew. The amazing thing is that they almost succeed, considering this is an impossible task, and the probes can't scan for shit (it passes right above the stranded Maximals and doesn't see them or the ''Axalon''). There's also the question of why they'd go into all this effort to find them, given that they're not terribly important figures. Optimus Primal is not the leader of the Maximals unlike his ancestor.
** Doc Greene finds one in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRescueBots''. It was built in 1939, and the only reason it remained unused for so long was because there was no power source capable of sustaining it until nuclear power was invented.

* ''TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutron'' has one (in "The Tomorrow Boys"); the Chrono-Arch. This is a ''Terminator''-like type of time-travel machine ([[spoiler:Jimmy had to find it back when he went 15 years into the future, which he luckily did]]), and has an additional view-mode.
** Additionally, in "The League of Villains", Jimmy built a wormhole generator: [[spoiler:the Wormhole Generator 9000. The invention sent all of Retroville (except Jimmy, the gang and Tee) to the prehistoric past with no hope of ever returning, until Jimmy appears]]. This can't really count as a time-traveling-machine, though, since [[spoiler:Jimmy had to disrupt the wormhole in order to get all of Retroville back to their time (leaving the bad guys in the past)]].
