* In ''VisualNovel/IkemenSengoku'', this happens in one of the routes. [[spoiler:Namely, Nobunaga's Dramatic route where he's able to prevent the temporal forces trying to set the timeline back to its original form where he's dead instead of the main character having saved him at Honno-ji from killing him by faking his death and letting Hideyoshi run the country instead to make it appear close enough to the original timeline for the temporal forces to leave him and the main character alone and happy together in hiding.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In the third ''Literature/Magic20'' book, the characters want to save their friend, who was dropped from a cliff by the book's BigBad and then made sure to watch him go splat. After defeating him, they use his computer to figure out the exact space/time coordinates where the friend will be and spend months preparing for the one shot they have. They swap him with an identical-looking construct mid-fall (when the bad guy isn't looking), and everything is peachy.

Added DiffLines:

* The BigBad of ''VideoGame/CrimsonEchoes'' was said to be dead [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger the one time]] he was ever mentioned at all. [[spoiler:Then the Big Good found out this trope was in play, only for it to turn out that maybe a guy like him probably should've stayed dead.]]

Added DiffLines:

* How Time-Turners work in ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor''. [[TemporalParadox Contradicting the past]] would lead to a TimeCrash, so a time-traveler should do their best not to contradict the past up to their knowledge, and magically-induced good luck will do the rest.

* Doing this is the climax of the ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban''. They're trying to save the hippogriff Buckbeak, who their past selves heard be executed by axe. Future Harry and Hermione manage to save Buckbeak, and the axe noise their past selves heard turns out to be the executioner hitting something else in frustration.

See also YouAlreadyChangedThePast, where ''any'' change you make to the past already happened before you thought of it. If a paradox IS possible, but you avoided it by making it look like you haven't changed anything, you have this trope. If you think you've Tricked Out Time, but actually YouAlreadyChangedThePast see MindScrew.

* Used in the third season finale of ''Series/TheFlash2014''. As Barry is apparently destined to watch Savitar kill Iris, [[spoiler: H.R]] uses a holographic disguise to impersonate her and die in her place. This still wrecks the StableTimeLoop around her death, however, as once Barry learns the truth he has no reason to [[spoiler: create the time remnant who will become Savitar.]]
