** Actually, the Titan Kronos has NOTHING to do with time at all. But there IS another god of time, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aion_(deity) Aion]], a primordial entity like Chronos. While Chronos represents empirical time, which is divided into past, present, and future, Aion represents [[TimeAbyss unbounded and cyclical time]], symbolized with his association with the Zodiac cycle.

* In the Season 5 finale of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Starlight Glimmer evidently TookALevelInBadass into this -- managing to modify Equestria's only known TimeTravel spell from something limited to the point of nigh-uselessness... into something [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Dialga]] would be proud of. This predictably leads to some {{Bad Future}}s the good guys must sort through.

* Marquai from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is the patron god of time, but is also the patron of ''ingenuity'' and so is always looking for ways to screw with time or use it differently than he did before. Sometimes this confers Time Master powers on his followers as well.

** [[TheGambler Luxord]] from ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' has this as his element. [[InformedAbility He never seems to do anything useful with it]], but it sounds [[RuleOfCool cooler]] than the element of Compulsive Gambling. Though given how he doesn't seem to be a cheater in terms of personality, it's kinda justified in why he shies away from using it onscreen. His powers also mostly manifest through applying [[TimedMission Timed Missions]] to various tasks such as the fight between him and Sora.
** In ''II'', [[Disney/TheSwordInTheStone Merlin]] was able to create a door that led into a world based on WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts such as ''Steamboat Willie''. In ''3D'', he is also briefly mentioned as creating a YearInsideHourOutside space so [[spoiler:Lea could learn to use a Keyblade.]] Notably, the time travel Merlin uses in ''II'' manages to break ''every rule'' of time travel that was established in ''3D'': You can't change the past, you don't remember time traveling when you're done, a version of yourself must exist at the destination, and [[spoiler:you must give up your physical body to do it.]]
*** WordOfGod has it that the doors to Timeless River didn't actually lead to the past, but to a sub-world that was intricately connected to the main world, basically being the world of Disney Castle if [[StatusQuoIsGod status quo really was God]] and time ultimately had no impact.

* Lucoa from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' can rewind time, something she casually offers to do for Ilulu. The exact mechanics aren't specified since Ilulu turned down her offer.

*** Originally a low-level time traveler who was limited to jumping backwards through time, Trevor Fitzroy TookALevelInBadass in the 1999 mini-series ''Bishop: The Last X-Man'', in which he appropriately redubbed himself the Chronomancer. Like Tempus above, he learned he was able to travel either backwards or forwards through time entirely at will, as well as creating temporal spheres in which he could affect conditions far beyond Tempus's abilities, aging or deaging others at will and even restoring the EnergyBeing Shard back to her flesh-and-blood state. His ultimate plan was to absorb enough energy with his LifeDrinker powers to open a portal that would [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence allow him to merge with time itself]], and he came so close to it that Uatu TheWatcher himself showed up to observe his endgame.

** At one point an entirely supervillain ''group'' consisting of characters of this type existed, the appropriately-named Time Stealers. Consisting of Black Beetle, Despero, Mr. Mind, Per Degaton and the Ultra-Humanite, the group positioned themselves as enemies to Rip Hunter above, as well as his allies Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. Though defeated, the group was able to escape, and technically are still at large to this day, doing who-knows-what in the timestream.
** The first incarnation of ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' villain Gog had this as a cornerstone of his powerset. He was empowered by the Quintessence (a now-defunct group that consisted of the strongest and most godlike beings in the DCU) to be able to jump up or down the timestream entirely at will. Unfortunately for the Quintessence, Gog was driven AxCrazy by the experience of beings empowered and fixated on Superman as TheAntichrist. So he began jumping backwards through time in 24-hour increments, killing each Superman he encountered as he went. The second incarnation of Gog was also one of these, but inverted the way in which he used his powers, summoning an army of versions of himself from different points in time to do battle with Superman and Doomsday.

* In the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'', [[spoiler: [[KnightTemplar Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox]]]], the true BigBad of [[BadFuture Dark World]] can manipulate time, usually as a short term ResetButton to reverse any damage done in battle [[spoiler: (not to mention her GroundhogDayLoop plan)]]. This ultimately turns into a classic HoistByHisOwnPetard scenario, as Twilight figures out how to [[BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame use that same magic to defeat them]]: [[spoiler: Twilight [[BatmanGambit tricks her into using the reset trick]], so that Twilight can {{Power Copy|ing}} the time magic, and use it to take advantage of how much Paradox has screwed up time to [[GondorCallsForAid summon]] the [[CrisisCrossover G1, G2, G3, and pre-Reign of Chaos G4 Mane Casts]] in order to use all their Elements of Harmony to defeat Paradox and her {{Psycho Ranger|s}} CoDragons.]]

** Minuette has time magic, though far less powerful than the above. She can [[TimeStandsStill stop time for a short period]] of time.
* Minuette in ''Fanfic/{{Marionettes}}'' has this power primarily based off Tracer from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}''. She's also able to create small bubbles of 'paused' time, which can freeze the imagine of a camera.
