* The Android Saga from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' is kicked off by the arrival of Trunks, a FutureBadass who owns both Frieza and King Cold when they come to Earth to seek revenge on Goku before revealing himself to be the son of Vegeta and Bulma. He's traveled back in time because the future he came from is a BadFuture where human civilization has been destroyed by the Androids and he wants to prevent that future from coming to pass by making sure that Goku doesn't die from the heart disease that he picked up on Planet Yadrat. He's only half successful because while Goku does survive the heart disease, he's out of action for the good part of the saga, leaving Trunks and the rest of the Z team to battle the Androids. Then an even more dangerous villain arrives from a ''third'' timeline...

** Whis is revealed to have the ability to manipulate time, enough to go back by three minutes, anyway. It's debatable whether his ability is true time travel though, as it's implied that what he's doing is more along the lines of ''undoing'' the last 3 minutes across the entire universe, which is in some ways even more impressive.

* little known film ''Our Friend, Martin'' in which teens visit Martin Luther King at several points in his life and then bring him to their time, only to find doing so changes their timeline to one where his civil rights speeches and protests never happened (since he wasn't there to make them because he was in the future) so he must return home to restore the original timeline.

* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' '06 employed this trope annoyingly, to the degree that after a series of confusing time-jumps (one of which is to undo sonic dying), a small fire is blown out, thus erasing the whole sequence of events, time jumps and all. This renders it effectively an "It was all a dream" scenario.

* In GeneWolfe's "Free Live Free" is a character study of some down and outers in 1980s Chicago, but uses time travel to enable the otherwise unexplainable series of events that reveal the main characters. The time machine is left behind when a time travel occurs. The means by which jumpers to the future are able to get back (not taking the machine with them) is very poetically handled if you see technology from a poetic point of view; Miyazaki might like it. There is never more than one version of a person, so if you go back to a time in which you previously lived, the previous you disappears when the new you arrives (but the travelling version is also affected by this by a folding in of character traits). This whole entry would be a spoiler on any other page, as the book is partly a mystery novel, and figuring out that time travel was involved is part of the detective's task.

* Jack Chalker's ''{{Literature/DowntimingTheNightSide}}'' only allows a person to "jump" inside the body and consciousness of a person. The catch is that their minds get blended together so that with every jump, the time traveler retains a portion of the mind of the person they jumped into. Repeated jumps can overwhelm the time traveler's mind creating a completely different person. The protagonist gets so confused by this that [[spoiler:he eventually occupies the body of a woman, the same woman he had earlier slept with a had children by]].
