* Several characters in ''Literature/CreaturesOfLightAndDarkness'' by Roger Zelazny practice the martial art of "Temporal Fugue", which lets them jump a short distance back in time. It's almost impossible for anyone without this technique to beat someone who has it. When two people who have it fight ... things get ''interesting''.

* In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the Dragonborn can learn a Dragon-Shout that literally commands time itself to stop... and it ''listens''. The dragons are, in a weird metaphysical way that no one either in- or out-of-universe truly understands, either offspring or aspects or both of Akatosh, the god (or spirit, or personification, or ''something'') of Time, so they may count as well, although [[GameplayAndStorySegregation they're not actually seen manipulating time in a gameplay sense]].

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Akatosh, ([[IHaveManyNames aka Auri-El, Aka-Tusk, AKHAT, etc.]]) is the [[DragonsAreDivine draconic]] [[TopGod chief deity]] of the series' Aedric [[SaintlyChurch Nine Divines pantheon]] and is the God of Time. Given the way [[AnthropomorphicPersonification deities in the series typically work]], it is reasonable to say that Akatosh ''is'' time. Akatosh is said to have been the first being to "manifest" out of the raw energy of the early universe and linear time started with him at the end of the [[TimeOfMyths Dawn Era]], so he is literally [[TimeAbyss as old as time itself]].

* Warp from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' travels to the past (our present) to steal artifacts and take them back to his time where they are priceless treasures. He justifies it by being [[TheFatalist a fatalist]].
--> '''Warp:''' I went back in time to steal this because history says it disappeared. And history says it disappeared because I went back to steal it. Past, present, future. It's all written in stone, my dear. And nothing you do can ever change it.

** Sakuya Izayoi, the resident [[KnifeNut knife-throwing]] NinjaMaid at Scarlet Devil Mansion. Most of the time she uses her powers to [[TimeStandsStill slow time to the point it might as well count as frozen for everyone but her]] ([[MundaneUtility very useful for doing the housework in a giant building]]), but it's shown that she can also accelerate time for certain objects, like making flowers bloom instantly or turning new wine into vintage, and in the fighting games she has an ability outright called "[[TemporalParadox Time Paradox]]" that lets her call for backup from [[DopplegangerAttack a version of herself from an alternative timeline]]. However, she does have limits: she can't go against the flow of time itself, meaning no TimeTravel, she can't undo things that have already happened and she isn't able to take advantage of her time slow (though she ''can'' freeze them in place).

** [[spoiler:Acnologia the Black Dragon of the Apocalypse]] gains the power of Time Magic after [[spoiler:literally eating his way out of [[TimeParadox the Time Lapse]].]] So far, it's given him an incredible boost to his already vast power (he was the strongest thing in existence even before this).

* Dan from ''Literature/TrintonChronicles'' has control over time including accelerating, deaccelerating, and [[TimeStandsStill stopping time]]. As a bonus he gained [[LightEmUp light]] and [[CastingAShadow dark]] generation and control which gives him the bonus abilites to age/de-age (from light) and restore/degrade (from dark) people and objects.
* WordOfGod says there is no time travel in the WhateleyUniverse, but Stopwatch has the power of temporal warping. He can speed up his own personal time until he's effectively a speedster, or he can slow down someone else's time while he moves at a normal rate.

*In the ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' series, the Time Matrix is a device that can warp time and reality and is controlled by the user's mind, turning a wielder who really knows what it can do into basically a god. In the hands of those who didn't understand its full abilities, it has been used to simply travel through time, a power dangerous enough on its own. Its origin is unclear by way of RetCon (It was known to be created by the godlike Ellimists at a time in the story when they were described as being a species or group. Then, years later, we get a book telling the tale of the Ellimist we know, and he's revealed as having once been a normal member of the very ''non''-godlike Ketran race until the plot happened to him, and "Ellimist" was his originally screen-name as a gamer. The idea of ''him'' deciding to create something like the Time Matrix and then leave it [[NeglectfulPrecursors for others to stumble onto and screw up space-time with]] never comes up, and is something that would be very out of character.)



*In ''Series/KamenRiderRyuki,'' Kamen Rider Odin has a "Time Vent" ability that allows him to control time, changing events that are dangerous for TheLongGame that he's part of. ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' has Kamen Rider Cronus, who can freeze time and attack at will, becoming a GameBreaker who only doesn't kill the entire cast in their first encounter because he feels they're of use to his DeadlyGame. Worse, there are a few ways of bringing back a deleted character, but Cronus can "trap you in the moment of death," meaning you can't be revived.



* Myth/ClassicalMythology actually has two gods of time, both sharing the same name. There is Chronos, who being a primordial is time itself, and Kronos the King of the Titans, who is The Lord of Time and represents its destructive, all-devouring aspect.
