* [[PlayingWithATrope Played with in]] ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', where [[spoiler: the Second Generation Characters are all time travelers [[TimeTravelEscape who fled from a]] BadFuture where [[OmnicidalManiac Grima destroyed the world]]. Now for the most part, they cannot fall in love with the First Generation characters, averting this trope... until you realize they can fall for [[PlayerCharacter the Avatar]], who is a friend of the First Generation characters and a potential parent of the kids in his/her own right. And to top it all off, such a pairing will give these future children their own KidFromTheFuture: Morgan (who can also be the future kids' [[PromotionToParent little sibling]]). In this case though, none of them actually want to go back to their original BadFuture -- and even if they ''did'' want to return, that's a feat which may be impossible to do anyways since Grima trashed everything. [[note]](Though one DLC in FireEmblemFates has [[PhysicalGod Good Anankos]] managing [[WorldHealingWave to fix the lands themselves]], so who knows now.)[[/note]].]] The fandom [[InternetBackdraft is split]] on whether this is a good move story/gameplay wise or a ''really'' {{squick}}y deal, since [[spoiler:while the future kids are close to the Avatar's age (in fact, some are implied to be actually ''older'' than some of the potential First-Gen spouses), they are marrying someone who was at least two decades their senior in their original timeline, while their "current day" selves haven't even been born yet (with the exception of Lucina, and she's still only an infant)]].

* Happens every so often in ''VideoGame/GardensOfTime''. And by every so often, we mean a lot. It should also be pointed out that these types of romances are ''not allowed''.

* Happens every so often in ''VideoGame/GardensOfTime''. And by every so often, we mean a lot. It should also be pointed out that , even when in-story these types of romances are ''not allowed''.allowed''. There are two huge examples of the trope:
** [[spoiler: [[HandsomeLech Richard Wakefield]] found himself in AncientEgypt, right when UsefulNotes/CleopatraVII was about to commit suicide. He felt sympathy for the lonely and desperate Queen, disuaded her from killing herself and entered a romance with her. Bad thing, Cleopatra had a FaceHeelTurn and became a Time Traveler herself, causing LOTS of messes.]]
** [[IronLady Eleanor Lansing Purlieu]] meets [[KnightInShiningArmor Sir Geoffrey]], supposed to be one of Myth/KingArthur's Knights Of The Round Table, and they also become involved. [[spoiler: Then Geoffrey dies in an HeroicSacrifice, Eleanor [[LoveMakesYouCrazy almost loses it]]...]]

Added DiffLines:

** This trope has been zigzagged a lot with regards to the Doctor and Clara Oswald (WordOfGod, specifically Creator/PeterCapaldi, is that their relationship was a romance, just not a standard one). To explain in detail would turn this into a copy of the [[Characters/DoctorWhoRevivalSeriesCompanionsClaraOswald character page for Clara]], so best to just go there.

* The premise of ''Literature/ElevenTwentyTwoSixtyThree'' is that Jake Epping, a high school teacher from 2011, steps through a [[PortalToThePast portal to 1958]] so that he can prevent the Kennedy assassination. However, since he's got about five years before the dreaded date comes around, he has time to get a job teaching again and fall madly in love with the school's HotLibrarian Sadie Dunhill. [[spoiler: Sadie gets killed by Lee Harvey Oswald instead of Kennedy, and Jake finds out that his mucking around in the past has made such a monstrous TimeWimeyBall that he needs to undo all of it, so he never meets Sadie and Oswald never shoots her. Back in an restored 2011, Jake finds Sadie, now a stranger over twice his age, and dances with her one last time, their love momentarily transcending the decades and universes now forever holding them apart.]]
