* ''WesternAnimation/TheRaccoons'': The Pigs bought a time machine in episode "Time Trap" and it seems at first that Cyril uses it to travel back to previous episodes and change the result in his benefit (yes, it's a ClipShow, although they do remade some scenes of the previous episodes altered) but it turns out [[spoiler:is AllJustADream.]]

* ''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)]].

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': Time travel technology was invented by scientists in the 22nd century, first showing up in "City of The Damned". It has sporadically appeared since then. [[ComicBook/StrontiumDog Johnny Alpha]] (who lives in the 23rd century) also uses his own transportable time travel device to visit Dredd's time during CrossOver stories.

* ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime'' actually features ''two'' methods!
** The first is a lever in The Great Clock that physically rewinds time like a cassette tape, at the risk of the Clock breaking through the stress (it's similar to the ''Terminator'' method as the reversal usually means the user is no longer near the lever).

* ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime'' actually features ''two'' ''three'' methods!
** The first is a lever in The Great Clock that physically rewinds time like a cassette tape, at the risk of the Clock breaking through the stress (it's similar to the ''Terminator'' method method, as the reversal usually means the user is no longer anywhere near the lever).lever). A smaller example is the effect of Clank hitting a broken object with his Chronoscepter; the object reversed in time until it's in a fixed state. Lastly, some spots of planet Quantos are stuck in a tape-like forward/rewind loop, which provide platforming puzzles for Ratchet to navigate.



*** The two methods have actually been a source of confusion for fans: WordOfGod has it that the Time Portals can only be created in Time Anomaly vortexes, all of which are repaired by the time the story ends. However the game never explains this, leading to many fans asking why Ratchet didn't just use the Time Portals to save the Lombaxes!

** The third and final method are the Time Bombs utilized by Clank that create a Time Dilation Field; these can be used to slow rotating platforms down or make enemies easier to deal with. They also appear early in the story when the Great Clock is being effectively ransacked, and certain levels feature Time Anomaly vortexes with things slowed to a stop. In ''[[RatchetAndClankAll4One All 4 One]]'', Clank's unique gadget is this as a gun that affects individual targets with Time Dilation Fields.

* The film ''Film/{{Primer}}'' has an interesting variation on the Time Machine that doesn't quite fit into any of the above types, but can be imagined as a sort of unique combination of [[TimeDilationField Time Dilation Fields]] and [[TimePortal Time Portals]] that only go backwards a la ''{{Terminator}}''. It gets worse; see [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primer_%28film%29 the film's Wikipedia entry]].

* ''Film/{{Looper}}'' appears to have the ''{{Terminator}}''-type time machine 30 years from the film's time, which TheMafia uses to cleanly dispose of those they want to kill (i.e. they send a message into the past, warning their predecessors about the time and the place, who then send a Looper there with a gun; the future mafia send the target with a bag over his head and payment for the hit in the form of gold bars; the Looper kills the target, incinerates the body, and gets paid).

* Time travel in Dan Bayn's ''Tempus'' setting is ''{{Terminator}}'' style. You can only travel to the past, and once you've arrived, you cannot go back -- time is like a funnel in Tempus, with an infinity of possible futures spiralling into the present until just one becomes the past, and going forward in time would scatter you among those many futures like dust in a hurricane. Basically, [[RuleOfCool it's an excuse to have cool futuristic tech in the modern day]].

* The M.I.N.D. Machine of ''{{Literature/Dinoverse}}'' is between a Terminator and Time Cop type device, which can also breach dimensions. When it comes to time, you CantTakeAnythingWithYou, [[IntangibleTimeTravel including your body]], but you end up in a new one and have to get something done before it lets you come back. There is no such restriction with interdimensional travel, but it ''doesn't'' take you back.

* 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).
