* ''VideoGame/DarkCloud 2'' (a.k.a. ''Dark Chronicle''), both with objects the main characters carried and a flying, time travelling CoolTrain that seems [[GalaxyExpress999 awfully]] [[Series/KamenRiderDenO familiar]].

* In the card game ''TabletopGame/{{Chrononauts}}'', the players are time travelers from various alternate futures, and are trying to change the timeline to match their own timeline's version of the "past" so that they can finally go home. Since all the alternate futures have conflicting versions of "history," and many of those conflicting versions require a specific outcome to World War II (Hitler was assassinated early and WW2 was Japan vs. America, Hitler lived and D-Day failed so that Germany won WW2, and a couple other variants), HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct gets a real workout. There's an alternate victory condition in which players have to collect certain combinations of [[MacGuffin Mac Guffins]] of questionable historical importance, but that's for material gain, not timeline shenanigans. A third victory condition is to get hired by the local TimePolice after fixing enough of other people's paradoxes.

* One of the missions in ''OsuTatakaeOuendan'' involves being called by Cleopatra in Ancient Egypt to cheer on her helping her workers to build a Pyramid in 10 days so she can use its magic to get more beautiful and greet her lover Marc Antony properly.

* ''Podcast/RedPandaAdventures:''
** In "The World Next Door", a time traveler named Baboon [=McSmoothie=] comes from the early forties to the thirties to steal a prototype invention created by Nazi scientist Friedrich von Schlitz. He explains he also came from an alternate timeline precisely to avoid paradox issues in his own. Otherwise stealing the prototype would slow, if not stop, the future work of von Schlitz, give the Allies an advantage, and remove his reason for time traveling in the first place. He enlists the Red Panda's aid with future knowledge that might potentially save the Flying Squirrel's life one day.
** The Red Squirrel is the Terrific Twosome's [[KidFromTheFuture descendant from the future]] who was inspired to take up superheroics by stories of her ancestors. She goes to the past when one of her Rogues Gallery starts launching attacks on the past in order to protect the Red Panda and Flying Squirrel. She reappears once more to pose as the Flying Squirrel so Kit can properly prepare for her wedding day, since the Red Squirrel has a vested interest in making sure they get hitched without a hitch.
** "The Honoured Dead" has the Red Panda and Flying Squirrel traveling back in time to retrieve a lost artifact. They utilize time travel because the Red Panda concludes YouAlreadyChangedThePast is in effect and the reason the artifact was lost to begin with was because they went back in time to take it.
** "The Chimes at Midnight" feature a pair of time travelers on a mission to elminate the Black Eagle before he can become a superhero. Their information gives them the exact time and place in which he becomes a hero, but the plan ultimately fails because, while their historical records accurately describe the moment the Black Eagle became a hero, they do mention that was not the moment he got his ''powers'', which he'd had for a while already.

* There is a whole sub genre of broadly mid-century (usually) British children's books which take a particularly dreamlike psycho-drama approach to time-travel. Perhaps time-''slip'' is the better phrase. All the British examples received adaptations by the BBC.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': The entire premise is about a [[FishOutOfTemporalWater samurai warrior from ancient Japan]] being flung into the far future, where his demonic nemesis Aku has taken over the world. [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Jack]] travels across the world in search of time portals and other magical artifacts so he can [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong return to the past, defeat Aku and prevent the nightmare future world from ever coming to be]]. Invariably, Jack will always fail to use the artifact or portal due to some intervening circumstance. By Season 5, fifty years have passed with no luck and Jack [[TheAgeless has not aged a day]] but [[ShellShockedVeteran is a broken shell of a man]] because of it.

* Three ''Zelda'' games use it as a core game mechanic: ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' has Link travel back and forth seven years, ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'' has him travel through a GroundhogDayLoop, and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle Of Ages]]'' has him use a harp to travel 400 years to the past and back. The mechanics aren't exactly consistent; time travel in ''Ocarina of Time'' causes a [[AlternateTimeline timeline split]], but seems to operate on a StableTimeLoop system in the ''Oracle of Ages''. And let's not get started on the various ways the time travel mechanics of ''Majora's Mask'' might work.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' heavily features this mechanic in the Lanayru area: By hitting Timeshift Stones, Link can return an area in a certain radius from the stone to how it was in the past, also reviving any creatures whose remains lie in the area. So basically you can travel through time by walking into or out of the area of effect.
*** Time travel also plays a substantial role in [[spoiler:the main story]]; among other things, [[spoiler:the finale take place ages before most of the characters were even born]], and [[spoiler:Impa is escorting Zelda around the surface at the exact same time her older self is continuing to monitor the Imprisoned]].

* Becomes a major theme in ''PandoraHearts'' after it is revealed that time flows differently in [[TheUnderworld the Abyss.]] Any character that falls down there, [[EldritchLocation if they make it out alive,]] hardly ever comes back to his or her original timeline.

* Warhammer40K: Warp travel involves going through another dimension where FTL is possible, but it's extremely erratic and random. [[StableTimeLoop One ship ended up setting out to respond to its own distress signal sent just before it exploded]], while an ork Waaaaagh! ended up popping out of the Warp just in front of its younger self. The warboss immediately attacked and killed his past self so he could have two sets of his favorite gun. In the ensuing confusion, the Waaagh! disbanded.

* In ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange", the main character acquires the ability to time-travel, although the power only extends to a few minutes in the past, and is typically used to change some of the recent choices you make. In Episode 3, [[spoiler: she travels ''really'' far back into the past and ends up creating an alternate timeline.]]
