* According to one of the [[MentalTimeTravel noncorporeal time travelers]] in TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon of ''[[ShinMegamiTensei Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. the Soulless Army]]'', ''corporeal'' time travelers run the risk of precisely this happening to them. [[spoiler:This is what happens to the BigBad, who due to mucking with the timeline, apparently destroys the timeline that leads to the events of ''ShinMegamiTenseiI'' and ''ShinMegamiTenseiII'', negating his own existence and only remaining extant due to his possession of his ancestress, Kaya Daidouji. When the bond is severed, he's thrown into a TimeAbyss.]]

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': Robin, an Inhuman with the ability to see the future, perceives all of time at once. This results in oddities like desperately warning Daisy that the man she's fighting has a knife... eighty years before she will even meet him.

the person who is Unstuck In Time not only travels through time in his own body, (and [[BodySurf possibly in others]]) but he does so randomly. Without any knowledge of where he will wake up... or when.

* Near the climax of ''Film/Arrival'', it's revealed that [[spoiler:comprehending the alien language causes one to experience one's entire life holistically]]. Accordingly, Louise [[spoiler:uses information she will receive in a conversation the next year]].

* Viki from the ''{{Suikoden}}'' series is well known for this: each time she sneezes (typically during a victory banquet), she ends up teleporting herself somewhere else, at a different time. It makes extremely confusing to guess if the Viki of one game jumped from the preceding one or the following one into the current game you are playing.

* Captain Picard in the last episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. Also, a variation happened to Worf in one episode, where instead of being Unstuck In Time, he keeps traveling between [[AlternateUniverse parallel universes]].
** Unstuck in timelines?
* Miles O'Brien in the episode "Visionary" of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine''.
** His case was not random, though. It was quickly determined that he always jumped 6 hours into the future, every 6 hours, and landed a short distance from where his future self was.
* Kes, in ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', except she was traveling backwards in time from the end of her life, and the timeline that was shown never actually came to be, since Kes got off the ship long before then. It did, however, provide some foreshadowing for the upcoming Year of Hell storyline.

** In "The Visitor", a weird accident involving the ''Defiant's'' warp core and the wormhole results in Sisko getting caught in subspace, experiencing minutes where the outside experiences decades. The episode revolves around Jake's efforts to figure out what happened and get him back.

** The beginning of "Coda" ''appears'' to involve this, with Janeway and Chakotay reliving a conversation and shuttle crash more than once. But by mid-season 3 they're old hands at this and just start scanning for the tachyons. [[spoiler:It's actually an elaborate illusion by a creature that feeds on life force.]]

* In ''Destiny'', you find yourself entering the Vault of Glass, an entire cave system that is Unstuck In Time, to rescue a Guardian from it. Unfortunately, [[spoiler: there was nothing you could have done]]; because of the Vault and the strange things it does to time, [[spoiler:even though the Guardian you're looking for is speaking to you in real time, he's also been dead for centuries and all you find is his bones]].

* In season 5 of ''PersonOfInterest'', [[spoiler:the Machine]] loses her ability to perceive time. The results are every bit as disastrous as you'd expect, since [[spoiler:she can no longer place people's actions in context. Thankfully, Harold fixes the problem by the end of the episode]].
