->''"Staleek, he can wrap time 'round his little finger; the hoodoo-voodoo is not gonna work!"''
-->-- '''John Crichton''' on Einstein, ''Series/{{Farscape}}''

%% One quote is sufficient. Please place additional entries on the quotes tab.

Some people can control {{reality|Warper}}. Others can control [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], some control [[AnIcePerson Ice]], and some just get [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway saddled with]] [[HeartBeatDown Heart]]. This guy? He scored the bronze medal in the SuperpowerLottery: he controls time itself. This is called many things, but whether through forbidden magic, ImportedAlienPhlebotinum, or just being TheChosenOne, he can move through the ages like walking to his kitchen. The powers of the Time Masters are multiple and varied; he may [[TimeTravel travel in time]], cause the flow of time to [[CaffeineBulletTime slow down]] or speed up or [[TimeStandsStill stop altogether]], move between [[AlternateTimeline alternate timelines]]...

He may be a member of the TimePolice, a ConquerorFromTheFuture or the one winding up the [[TimeyWimeyBall Timey Wimey Balls,]] but as far as he's concerned, no-when is safe.

If he's an antagonist, killing him may be difficult, impossible, or force FridgeLogic upon the viewer. After all, if he can move through time, can't he go back to before you attack him and kill you?

Maybe, as a consequence of, or as a necessary condition for his power, he's a TimeAbyss.

Note that TimeTravel itself is not a necessary power, and there are many characters with time powers who explicitly cannot travel through time. [[TheMaster Especially that one.]] The BadassNormal version would be the ClockKing (who might be called a time master in-universe, but isn't).

Not to be confused with a JustForFun/TimeLord. Or the movie ''Animation/TimeMasters''. Or the tabletop RPG ''TabletopGame/{{Timemaster}}''.



[[folder:Anime And Manga]]
* Aoba from ''Manga/CodeBreaker''.
* Kyoko from ''Manga/TimeStrangerKyoko''.
* The Time Card in ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura''.
* Sailor Pluto of ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. She largely has only one real time-related power (her ties to time are mostly due to her guarding the time gate) in that she can stop time for everyone but those she chooses. Doing this costs her life however.
* ''Franchise/DragonBall''
** Guldo has the ability to stop time for as long as he can hold his breath.
** Whis, Beerus' assistance, is not only a RealityWarper, but he can rewind time by three minutes for the entire universe. It does have limits. He can't do it twice in a row.
** Hit from ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' has a somewhat similar ability as Guldo, [[spoiler: being able to skip time. He can only do it for 0.1 seconds, but since Hit has SuperSpeed on top of this ability, he can mortally wound an opponent before they even have the chance to move. Also, unlike Guldo, he can repeatedly use his ability as many times as he wants since it seems to take no stamina...and then he reveals he can extend it even longer, boosting it up to 0.5 seconds while in the middle of the match with Goku]].
* [[spoiler: Chao Lingshen]] from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', who possesses special bullets that can displace a target through time and has a fighting style that involves a lot of time travel abuse to evade attacks.
* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'':
** Dio Brando's Stand ''[[TimeStandsStill The World]]'' as well as a number of other character could qualify. Dio's ability to stop time was kept a secret from his enemies, and he used it to perform all sorts of seemingly-impossible stunts. In the anime version, he made it look like things around him were exploding or tearing themselves apart ''because he willed it.'' Being able to stop time, if only for a few moments, made him virtually invincible.
** In fact, for quite a while the major villains of each arc (except Kars) had powers relating to time. Dio's ''The World'' could stop time, Kira's tertiary ''Another One Bites the Dust'' can invoke time loops, Diavolo's ''King Crimson'' can erase small spaces of time, and Pucci's ''Made in Heaven'' could accelerate the flow of time to unbelievable levels. Even Funny Valentine in ''Steel Ball Run'', while not able to affect the ''flow'' of time, weaponizes the ability to travel between [[AlternateUniverse parallel timelines]]--arguably mastery over space.
** ''Steel Ball Run'' did indeed have a straight TimeMaster adversary in Ringo Roadagain. However, Mandom's temporal recursion ability (reset everything back to the way it was six seconds ago, but with everyone knowing what had happened in that time) doesn't give Ringo that much more of an advantage than anyone else, because (a) he deeply believes in ExplainingYourPowerToTheEnemy (it wouldn't [[HonorBeforeReason be a fair fight otherwise]], and (b) he gets reset along with everyone else. Knowing what's going to happen is his only real advantage, so it's ultimately just an oblique form of precognition. [[spoiler: Defeating him proves to just be a case of getting him into a situation where the reset's knowledge ''won't'' allow him to escape, because there's no avenue of escape.]]
* Nagato Yuki in ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' is a SufficientlyAdvanced alien with RealityWarper powers similar in nature to the Agents of ''Film/TheMatrix''. Though incapable of physical TimeTravel (she instead "downloads" her future mind into her past body in one instance, effectively making her the same person), she is capable of manipulating time and space, and helps a couple of time traveling friends who lost their time machine get back to the future by [[TheSlowPath having them lie down in her guest bedroom and freezing time within said room while the outside world continues to move]].
* This is [[NeverMessWithGranny Subaru's]] Seishi power in ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. [[spoiler: Which she uses on [[BattleCouple her husband Tokaki and herself]], reverting them to their younger selves for a while. She also casts a similar spell on her friend nd fellow Byakko Senshi Tatara, allowing him to keep his youth and live indefinitely [[{{geas}} as long as he stays in a determined place]] -- which suits him fine because he wants to live as long as possible to protect [[MacGuffin the Shinzaho]].]]
* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** Ultear Milkovich has the ability age or restore inanimate objects. She later reveals that [[spoiler:[[DangerousForbiddenTechnique she can travel the entire world back a minute back in time in exchange for making her age to near death]]]] and gains the ability to sense disturbances in the time flow caused by other time mages [[spoiler:which also allows her to send an AstralProjection that can unfreeze the frozen time for certain objects or people, though not directly fight]] She can also unlock a person's hidden magical potential with the Second Origin [[spoiler:and give them access to all the power they will ever obtain with the Third Origin, though it leaves them magic-less for the rest of their lives]].
** This is the true power of [[PraetorianGuard Spriggan Twelve]] [[spoiler:[[MasterSwordsman DiMaria Yesta]]]]. She can freeze time all around her for a seemingly unlimited period and it gives her all the openings she needs to finish her opponents. To them, she hasn't even moved as [[PowerPerversionPotential their clothes suddenly explode into shreds]] and it has one hell of a psychological edge. [[ShoutOut She even shares Dio Brando's arrogance in calling the frozen time "her world"]]. The source of said powers is no joke either: [[spoiler:she's literally the [[WillingChanneler vessel]] of the [[PhysicalGod God of Time, Chronos]] due to being descended from the tribe that worshipped him]]. She only loses because [[spoiler:Ultear unfroze time around Wendy and Sherria to fight her, and Sherria [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique used Ultear's Third Origin]] to enhance her [[AchillesHeel God Slayer Magic]] to the point she actually could hurt her]].
** [[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).
* In ''Manga/RaveMaster'', Captain Hardner has an interesting way of using time related powers. Namely, restoring old wounds to people, and retgone'ing his own injuries. Sieghart and [[spoiler: Niebel]], however, as Time Guardians, count as more straight examples. Sieg can make objects and living beings travel through time, while [[spoiler: Niebel can manipulate his own time, giving him a massive power boost in exchange for aging in an incredible speed non-stop.]]
* Midori Okamoto from ''Anime/StarDriver'' has various powers relating to time, including the ability to [[FountainOfYouth turn back time on her own body to become a teenager]] and [[{{Seers}} see a few seconds into the future]] (just enough for her to dodge enemy attacks).
* [[spoiler: [[AntiHero Homura Akemi]]]] from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' can [[TimeStandsStill pause time]] and perform MentalTimeTravel, though seemingly only to one specific time.
* Barragan Louisenbairn from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. His abilities stem around manipulating the flow of time to slow down his enemies and make them age and crumble into dust. [[spoiler:As it turns out, even ''he's'' not immune to this power and needs [[RequiredSecondaryPower to use a special personal field to protect himself]]. The moment someone managed to get a piece of that power past said shield, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard it was over in a matter of seconds]]]].
** In a way Orihime's ability could be viewed as this. She is able to "reject" or retgone virtually anything, from damage/injuries to an object's existence.
* [[TheChessmaster Amber]] from ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' can [[OracularUrchin predict the future]], [[TimeStandsStill freeze time]], or even [[SaveScumming turn back time a little]] if she doesn't like the way things turned out on the first try. And she's the BigBad, [[NecessarilyEvil sort of]]. The [[PowerAtAPrice "cost"]] she pays for this [[SuperpowerLottery fantastic ability]] is that she actually grows younger when she uses her power, so she could basically [[CursedWithAwesome live forever]] under the right circumstances. [[spoiler:Instead, she pulls a HeroicSacrifice, using her power until she de-ages right out of existence, in order to give the hero a chance to TakeAThirdOption, where the first two options were basically different kinds of genocide.]]
* Emiya Kiritsugu from ''LightNovel/FateZero'' is a more restrained version of this. He has a magecraft called 'Innate Time Control' which allows him to internally affect time - speed it up for superhuman reaction time in combat, or slow down his bodily functions to avoid a search-and-destroy system. However, whenever he reverts to normal time, his body is forcibly 're-synced' to the time of the World, which can cause [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique very heavy internal injuries]].
* Ruri from ''Manga/RisingXRydeen'' has an ability called "chain of lost memory". This lets her revert anything or anyone back to the it was five minutes ago. So as long as the item or person was injured within five minutes she can fix or heal them.
* Kurumi Tokisaki from ''LightNovel/DateALive''. She has twelve different time-related powers (based on the twelve numbers of a clock) which include summoning temporal duplicates of herself, freezing time, speeding herself up, rewinding time to heal her injuries, etc. Each use is a CastFromLifespan, but she can drain the lifespan of others.
* Alphamon of ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' can use its Alpha Inforce ability to manipulate time in a way that lets it perform a SpamAttack. ''Anime/DigimonXrosWarsTheYoungHuntersLeapingThroughTime'' also has the old watchmaker's partner Clockmon who can freeze time.
* ''Manga/BungouStrayDogs'' gives us [[spoiler:Louisa May Alcott. Initially, the audience is led to believe that her ability is to predict and plan for any event, but it's actually to slow time in any given room to 1/8000th of its normal speed, provided she's the only one in that room.]]
* ''Anime/{{Shinzo}}'': Queen Rusephine, one of the last villains of the first season, has power over the spacetime continuum. She uses this to reveal several unpleasant truths from the past to the three main heroes, as well as summon a past version of the BigBad to the present. The first was an effective way to rub salt in the wound, but the latter backfires when he just kills her and absorbs her powers.
* Basilisk in ''LightNovel/UnlimitedFafnir'' can shoot a beam from its eyes that ages anything it hits by two thousand years every second. [[spoiler:It can shoot an even more powerful beam from a third eye on its back, which ages the target by hundreds of millions of years. It also has the ability to see into the future to some extent.]]
* Lucoa from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' can rewind time, something she casually offers to do for Ilulu. The exact mechanics aren't specified since Ilulu turned down her offer.
* Lux in ''LightNovel/UndefeatedBahamutChronicle'' can do this using his Drag-Ride. He initially uses it to slow down his own time for five seconds, then speed it up to give himself five seconds of SuperSpeed. To make this viable in combat, [[RequiredSecondaryPowers he needs to first analyse the enemy's attacks so he can dodge them while slowed-down]]. He later learns how to apply this to other people (slowing them down so he can attack them multiple times, then speeding them up so that they feel all the effects of the attacks at once) and to his surroundings (to slow down incoming projectiles so he can intercept them).

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''Franchise/MarvelUniverse''
** Immortus, the future (and later, alternate) self of the ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'''s villain, Kang the Conqueror. He has an extensive knowledge of travel through and manipulation of time. He uses a wide variety of instrumentation for manipulation of and travel through time, most of which he designed. It is known that he was tutored by the Time-Keepers.
** Any wielder of the Time Gem.
** ComicBook/XMen:
*** Velocidad was first thought to have SuperSpeed. This was disproven when [[CrazyAwesome Doctor Nemesis]] had him run across water... and he fell in, unable to move fast enough to not break the surface tension. Turns out he controls time in a localized pocket, giving him the appearance of super-speed outside but still subjected to the normal laws of physics inside.
*** Kiden Nixon of ''ComicBook/{{NYX}}''. Time appears to slow down for everyone around her, while still passing normally for her (at one point, she spends ''months'' in this accelerated state, while only a few days pass outside it). However, unlike Velocidad, the effect is more than simply SuperSpeed: She just ''pokes'' someone who had been harassing her, and it snaps his arm like a twig. In at least one future, Kiden's powers were developed to the point that Stryfe was able to use her to create a field that ''jammed all time travel and teleportation across the entire planet''. Whether Kiden would be capable of doing so naturally or not was unclear.
*** Eva Bell aka Tempus has similar powers to Kiden, being able to create temporal spheres where time slows to a crawl for everyone but her. [[TimeTravel She can also displace time within those same spheres for about a minute]]. Eva eventually developed the ability to travel through time altogether, including [[spoiler: bringing Charles Xavier from the past to deal with a incredibly powerful mutant with out-of-control powers]]. Notably, her time travel abilities break one of the fundamental laws of time travel in the Marvel Universe, that one is unable to alter their ''own'' time stream.[[note]]For example, the famed ''Comicbook/DaysOfFuturePast'' led to the creation of two alternate earths: The mainstream Earth-616 and Earth-811, in which the BadFuture occurs. Both timelines explicitly continue to exist side-by-side after Kitty changes the past, their point of divergence being the assassination of Senator Kelly.[[/note]] Tempus is shown being able to travel ''at will'' through her own universe's past and future, which she has done without consideration for the [[ButterflyEffect massive consequences even a small change might have]].
*** Originally a low-level time traveler who was limited to jumping backwards through time, Trevor Fitzroy TookALevelInBadass in the 1999 mini-series ''Bishop: The Last X-Man'', in which he appropriately redubbed himself the Chronomancer. Like Tempus above, he learned he was able to travel either backwards or forwards through time entirely at will, as well as creating temporal spheres in which he could affect conditions far beyond Tempus's abilities, aging or deaging others at will and even restoring the EnergyBeing Shard back to her flesh-and-blood state. His ultimate plan was to absorb enough energy with his LifeDrinker powers to open a portal that would [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence allow him to merge with time itself]], and he came so close to it that Uatu TheWatcher himself showed up to observe his endgame.
* Franchise/TheDCU:
** The Time Trapper, one of the main villains of the ''ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes''. He was able to age anyone he choose (even to bones or ashes). He was capable of creating an "Iron Curtain of Time," a barrier which prevented time travel. He was also able to create a temporal force barrier which he used to seal a time traveling Superman off from the 20th century. On [[AlternateUniverse Earth-18]], he kept available technology and culture 'stuck' as they were in the Wild West era, forcing the inhabitants to work around it, emulating modern-day developments with late 19th-century tech.
*** The ''Comicbook/CaptainCarrotAndHisAmazingZooCrew'' counterpart of the Time Trapper was a bear with a watch for a belt and an hourglass round his neck, called the Time Keeper. He could alter the ages of the heroes and send them back in time to fight FunnyAnimal historical characters.
** The second [[ComicBook/TheFlash Reverse-Flash]] / Zoom (Hunter Zolomon) does not have SuperSpeed, as he uses his temporal powers to fake having SuperSpeed to battle Wally with.
** The android ComicBook/{{Hourman}}, who was built with precognition and chronal manipulation powers on top of possessing a map of all space and time.
** Classic ''Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'' villain Epoch, the Lord of Time.
** Rip Hunter is The Time Master. He uses his time machine to, in addition to fighting evil and learning martial arts, get the best soda of all time.
** At one point an entirely supervillain ''group'' consisting of characters of this type existed, the appropriately-named Time Stealers. Consisting of Black Beetle, Despero, Mr. Mind, Per Degaton and the Ultra-Humanite, the group positioned themselves as enemies to Rip Hunter above, as well as his allies Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. Though defeated, the group was able to escape, and technically are still at large to this day, doing who-knows-what in the timestream.
** The first incarnation of ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' villain Gog had this as a cornerstone of his powerset. He was empowered by the Quintessence (a now-defunct group that consisted of the strongest and most godlike beings in the DCU) to be able to jump up or down the timestream entirely at will. Unfortunately for the Quintessence, Gog was driven AxCrazy by the experience of beings empowered and fixated on Superman as TheAntichrist. So he began jumping backwards through time in 24-hour increments, killing each Superman he encountered as he went. The second incarnation of Gog was also one of these, but inverted the way in which he used his powers, summoning an army of versions of himself from different points in time to do battle with Superman and Doomsday.
** ''ComicBook/ZeroHour'' villain Extant had loosely defined time control powers. He killed several members of the ComicBook/{{Justice Society|OfAmerica}} by accelerating their aging to the point of death, and later he defeated Jay Garrick by regressing him back to an age before he acquired super-speed and became the Flash.
* Parodied with the D-list supervillain Killing Time in ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'': he ''doesn't'' have any time powers, but really, really wishes he had. So he uses clock-themed gadgets instead - clock hands thrown as darts, a bolo made by joining the chains of two pocket watches, etc. Emp responds with her "mighty power over plant life" -- that is, she beats him with a branch until he stops moving. Same was the case for the DC villain Chronos until he made a deal with Nero, and gained actual time powers.
* In the ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' story "The Nearness of You," the Time-Keeper is a villain who uses stopwatches of his own design that can stop time. He ends up tearing a dimension in time and confronts Eterneon, the Lord and Watcher of the Timestream; their battle results in a TimeCrash CrisisCrossover.
* ''ComicBook/{{Vampirella}}'': Hopper is a time traveller wearing a bunny mask who keeps track of all events so he can guide events along their proper path. For one thing, acting as a ReverseMole against Quatermass' plot to conquer all of time.
* Done in Franchise/ArchieComics, of all places, with ''Santa Claus''. When one of his elves asks HowCanSantaDeliverAllThoseToys, Santa says that he uses a "special time warp technique" to do it.

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* In ''Fanfic/KeepersOfTheElements'', [[DeadpanSnarker Nasira]], one of the [[{{Immortality}} Immortals]] is the resident Time Mistress.
* In the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'',
** [[spoiler: [[KnightTemplar Nightmare Eclipse/Paradox]]]], the true BigBad of [[BadFuture Dark World]] can manipulate time, usually as a short term ResetButton to reverse any damage done in battle [[spoiler: (not to mention her GroundhogDayLoop plan)]]. This ultimately turns into a classic HoistByHisOwnPetard scenario, as Twilight figures out how to [[BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame use that same magic to defeat them]]: [[spoiler: Twilight [[BatmanGambit tricks her into using the reset trick]], so that Twilight can {{Power Copy|ing}} the time magic, and use it to take advantage of how much Paradox has screwed up time to [[GondorCallsForAid summon]] the [[CrisisCrossover G1, G2, G3, and pre-Reign of Chaos G4 Mane Casts]] in order to use all their Elements of Harmony to defeat Paradox and her {{Psycho Ranger|s}} CoDragons.]]
** Minuette has time magic, though far less powerful than the above. She can [[TimeStandsStill stop time for a short period]] of time.
* Minuette in ''Fanfic/{{Marionettes}}'' has this power primarily based off Tracer from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}''. She's also able to create small bubbles of 'paused' time, which can freeze the imagine of a camera.
* ''Fanfic/{{Equestrylvania}}'' has [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaJudgment Aeon]] and [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaAriaOfSorrow the Chronomage]], who happen to be {{Arch Enem|y}}ies.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Doctor Stephen Strange from the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse was able to master the Eye of Agamotto, the most powerful relic within the [[Characters/MCUMastersOfTheMysticArts Masters of the Mystic Arts's]] possession that houses the Time Stone and allows the user to manipulate the fabric of time. Being the [[PhotographicMemory fast-learner]] that he is, Doctor Strange was not only able to learn the proper methods of activating it despite not being a fully-trained sorcerer at the time, but he was quickly able to use it to [[spoiler:reverse the destruction of the Hong King Sanctum]] and [[spoiler:essentially annoy Dormammu into forfeiting his war with Earth's universe by trapping him in a GroundhogDayLoop]]. In ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' he was able to speed up the time he took to find the right tracking spell to find Odin, and in ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' he was able to use it to peer into over fourteen million possible futures within a minute's time to properly plan their fight with Thanos.

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'':
** [[OldMaster Wen the Eternally Surprised]] and The History Monks he founded.
** [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Time]], Goddess of Time.
** [[spoiler: Lobsang Ludd, Time and Wen's son and heir.]]
** And Susan sto Helit, granddaughter of Death, can move through time and stop other people's time.
* The [=ChronoGuard=] and Colonel Next (a renegade former member of that organisation) in the ''Literature/ThursdayNext'' books. Being raised by a time traveller has proven to be an odd experience for Thursday, a sort of cross between a familial TimeTravelRomance and a mundane [[DisappearedDad absentee father]].
* In ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'', the BigBad Kronos is the Lord of Time. Even without his full power, as he is through the series, he can distort time to slow down his enemies. The companion books make clear that his powers stop at slowing down or speeding up time for others (he used to entertain himself by speeding up time for hapless plants, animals or humans and watching them wither and die back when he was king), and fortunately do not, in fact, include TimeTravel.
* The Shrike from the ''Literature/HyperionCantos'' can slow down time and travel freely in time and space.
* While technically any of the Travelers in ''Literature/ThePendragonAdventure'' can travel through time using the flumes, Saint Dane and [[spoiler:Nevva Winter]] can control their exact destination in time with them.
* In the ''[[Literature/FightingFantasy Sorcery!]]'' gamebook series, each of the Seven Serpents has power over one aspect of the universe. Their leader is the one with power over time.
* Norton becomes Chronos, the incarnation of time in ''Literature/BearingAnHourglass'', by Piers Anthony.
* The Old Ones in ''Literature/TheDarkIsRising'' series seem to be able to do this, to some degree.
* Yog-Sothoth, from the ''Franchise/CthulhuMythos'', isn't just a master of time - it IS space-time.
* In ''Literature/WaxAndWayne'', Sliders are mistings who can create a bubble of accelerated time around them, while Pulsers slow down time in their vicinity. Wayne is the former, and Marasi is the latter. Marasi thinks her power is useless compared to Wayne's (who uses his ability to force people into one-on-one duel that seem to finish in a heartbeat to outside observers), but [[spoiler:Marasi's ability proves very useful in the climax of the first book. They take out all of the villain's henchmen and get him in a pulser bubble for a few minutes (since he's impossible to kill), while outside the cops spend a few hours getting all their ducks in a row and come in force to arrest him]].
* The ''shieldwatch'' in ''Literature/AeonLegionLabyrinth'' grants a number of time based abilities to its user in addition to TimeTravel. It can [[DeflectorShields freeze projectiles]] in stasis, roll back time to when its user [[HealingFactor was not injured]], easily [[InfiniteSupplies create copies]] of most objects by moving areas around in time, speed up the user's [[SuperReflexes reflexes]] until they can dodge bullets, [[TimeStandsStill slow down falling objects or the user's fall]], or even restore the user's [[TheAgeless youth]]. It does have limited range and power though.
* In ''Literature/{{Neogicia}}'', one of the types of magic is time and Kavan Obérion uses it to accelerate his movement speed when he fights.
* 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.)
* Downplayed with Clockpunk of "Literature/ClockpunkAndTheVitalizer". Her powers work in increments of seven seconds, meaning she can [[TimeStandsStill slow time for seven seconds]] and [[CombatClairvoyance see seven seconds into the future]].
* 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''.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Illyria from ''Series/{{Angel}}'' can slow down time, effectively giving her SuperSpeed. She doesn't appear to be capable of time travel, until [[PowerIncontinence her powers start to malfunction]] and she starts jumping through time uncontrollably.
* Dr. Tom, the psychiatrist in ''Series/BeingErica'', seems to have this ability. He not only sends the protagonist Erica back through [[MentalTimeTravel time]] but then appears in her history, be it as a hot dog vendor, repairman, street performer, etc. so she can continue to consult with him.
* The demon [[MeaningfulName Tempus]] on ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' could create {{Groundhog Day Loop}}s and [[ResetButton rewind time]]. And later the [[WellIntentionedExtremist Avatars]] and [[TheMenInBlack The Cleaners]] also had time manipulating powers.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': The Time Lords, despite the name, are usually a subversion. Most of them ''cannot'' do this without their technology, with the following exceptions:
** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS11E2InvasionOfTheDinosaurs "Invasion of the Dinosaurs"]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS9E5TheTimeMonster "The Time Monster"]], the Doctor's Time Lord nature provides immunity from TimeStandsStill effects. Also, in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E2CityOfDeath "City of Death"]], both the Doctor and Romana notice a time loop that hits Paris while all the humans around them are oblivious to it.
** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS11E5PlanetOfTheSpiders "Planet of the Spiders"]] the ascetic Time Lord K'anpo Rimpoche had greatly developed his PsychicPowers to the point where he could travel through time and space without a TARDIS.
** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E2TheEndOfTheWorld "The End of the World"]], the Doctor shows that he has a perfect sense of timing, and that he can slow down his perception of time to the point [[SuperReflexes he can walk safely through a spinning fan.]]
** The Doctor has implied on several occasions in the new series that he is constantly aware of his position in time and space on a fundamental level, though this doesn't manifest as a practical ability beyond some sense of spatial anomalies. He also repeatedly demonstrates RippleEffectProofMemory, and is aware of whether or not history can be changed. In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E11HeavenSent Heaven Sent]]" he reveals he can feel time travel.
** In the ''Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse'', trained Time Lords can do this on a small scale, reaching a few seconds across time, usually for combat purposes, and the Celestial Intelligence Agency has operatives who can stop time, or jump a billion years, by willpower alone. But of course, when the Time Lords have their technology with them, they will prove ''exactly'' why they are called the '''Time Lords'''.
** In AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho the Eighth Doctor claims to have time senses, to the point that being in a timeless universe feels to him like he's lost a limb.
** The Creevix from [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWhoDOTD11TheTimeMachine The Time Machine]], InsectoidAliens from the next Universe along are better examples of this, manipulating a time loop to give them entry to our Universe. They can also [[SpacetimeEater consume potential]] and almost destroy this Universe.
** Bilis Manger from ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' embodies this trope.
* Einstein in ''Series/{{Farscape}}.'' Quite apart from having power over wormholes which can allow passage through both time and space, he can handily stop time whenever his guests start getting disagreeable.
* Kazu of the Heaven Time Star, the [=KirinRanger=] from ''Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger'' has time-rewind powers.
* 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.
* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'':
** Hiro Nakamura has the power of travelling through time (though in some cases he can't control it). By extension, Peter Petrelli gets the same power after he copies it from Hiro, and in turn Arthur Petrelli stole it from Peter. Besides being {{Time Master}}s, all three can also teleport as a result of controlling the space-time continuum.
** Daphne's super speed enabled her to time travel when combined with Ando's supercharging, allowing her to travel faster than the speed of light.
* ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' features the Pilgrim, who possesses temporal micro-manipulation, allowing her to reverse or freeze time at will.
* ''Series/SapphireAndSteel'': Sapphire can wind back time. Apart from that, Sapphire and Steel's enemies (which includes, arguably, ''Time itself''), commonly can distort and manipulate time.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
** Fate can stop time. She uses this power to cause [[RubeGoldbergDevice overly elaborate]], almost cartoonish deaths.
** Angels possess time travel abilities, although it doesn't work as wel if they're cut off from Heaven (Castiel tries it, and ends up badly bloodied as a result).
** Chronos had the BlessedWithSuck version. He can travel through time, but since [[PowerIncontinence he has no control over it]], he's just constantly teleporting from one period after another.
* Several Franchise/UltraSeries {{kaiju}}.
** Daidarahoshi from ''Series/UltramanAce'' is a Time-Traveling Choju created by Yapool to destroy a sacred statue.
** Goldras from ''Series/UltramanTiga'' is able to create "time storms", enormous clouds of electrical and magnetic energy that warp whatever their lightning bolts strike through time and space. It's also implied Goldras' time storms are behind every mysterious disappearance in history, such as the ships and planes of the Bermuda Triangle.
** Aeroviper from ''Series/UltramanGaia'' could open wormholes through time in mid-flight to evade foes. These time warps take whoever enters them into any possible timeline, including the past and alternate futures.
** Arados from ''Series/UltramanCosmos'' is a GentleGiant unlike the previous three, using its powers to migrate through time in search of food. However, when threatened, it can freeze time to make an escape or even send enemies through time to deal with them permanently.
** Yunijin from ''Series/UltramanMax'' is an interesting case as it's time abilities are actually an unintentional side effect. Because the monster perpetually orbits the solar system, it is never allowed to stop for more than a few seconds because if it does, it will release spores that erases existence. Luckily, the erasure lasts only temporarily if the monster is freed in time.
** Chronorm from ''Series/UltramanMebius'' is a very strange example. It consumes memories by warping targets to the time the memory it has targeted occurred, and then follows the victim into the past and kills their past selves.

[[folder:Multiple Media]]
* ''Toys/{{BIONICLE}}'':
** The Kanohi Vahi gives this power, although with the limitation that only the time around a given target can be sped up or slowed down. It doesn't allow time-travel either... Unless you break the thing, in which case it crashes time itself, so that the past, present and future will be all happening at once.
** Voporak, a member of the [[MurderInc Dark Hunters]] can willingly give off a temporal force field that drastically ages anything thrown at him, this power becoming extremely potent through touch. His abilities however have no effect on the Mask of Time itself. Voporak is also sensitive to fluctuations in the fabric of time, allowing him to sense the use of and track the Kanohi Vahi. His Rhotuka has the ability to distort an opponent’s sense of time, knocking their perception of time backwards by several seconds.

* The Watchmaker character from {{Music/Avantasia}}'s song "Master Of The Pendulum" is one of these. He controls time and thus forces events to occur with precision.
-->Tick away time, I allot and I divide,
-->Master of the hands that guide you.

* 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 despite originally being a agricultural deity. They're sometimes mistaken for or treated as the same guy in modern stories based on mythology- hence why Kronos has a scythe no matter in which role he is portrayed.
** Actually, the Titan Kronos has NOTHING to do with time at all. But there IS another god of time, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aion_(deity) Aion]], a primordial entity like Chronos. While Chronos represents empirical time, which is divided into past, present, and future, Aion represents [[TimeAbyss unbounded and cyclical time]], symbolized with his association with the Zodiac cycle.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Both ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' and ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' feature the Sphere/Arcanum of Time, which allows perception of the past/future as well as manipulation of the flow of time.
** ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' has it as a specialty of the Cult of Ecstasy (a Tradition that uses ecstatic measures to enter an altered state of perception), whereas ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' has it as a specialty of the Acanthus Path.
** The rare and much maligned True Brujah bloodline from ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' can control time with the Temporis Discipline.
** Wraiths may gain some control over the passage of time using the Pandemonium Arcanos in ''TabletopGame/WraithTheOblivion''.
** Characters in ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheDreaming'' can control time using the Chronos Art.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' Worldbook 3: England features both Temporal Mage and Temporal Knight character classes.
* Arcane Exxet, the magic and supernatural sourcebook for ''TabletopGame/AnimaBeyondFantasy'', features Time magic as an available subschool.
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' beings with these sorts of abilities:
** The Time Lord {{NPC}} class in Magazine/{{Dragon}} magazine #65.
** The Time Elemental in the 1st Edition Monster Manual II.
** Istus, goddess of Fate in the World of TabletopGame/{{Greyhawk}}.
** Phanes, described in the ''TabletopGame/EpicLevelHandbook'' supplement. They're unwanted children of deities of time/destiny who look like black clouds of various shapes. They can travel back in time, summon a copy of themselves from the future, summon copies of their opponents from an alternate timeline, and freeze themselves or others in time and devour their future (which basically makes their victims grow old at an accelerated rate.)
* /tg/ give us the aptly named Meanwhile: the Time Wizards, where the players are {{Reality Warper}}s that can bend time in order to tear holes in the fabric of reality and logic itself. There results range from cereal rains to burger rays, with a stroll through crazy country when a bar becomes a bra and everyone is now squeezed in between two gigantic breasts in an alternate dimension.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' gives any wizard who can use the [[LightEmUp Lore of Light]] the ability to manipulate time with the spell Birona's Timewarp, which frees a target unit "from the passage of time" and allows them to fight at unnatural speeds. Casting this on the right unit, such as the [[MightyGlacier slow but hard-hitting Saurus,]] can transform the target into a legion of game-breakers for one turn.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'':
** The game introduces the Crypteks of the [[WhateverMancy Chronomancy school]] in the 5e Necron codex, who use [[ClarkesThirdLaw incredibly advanced hyperscience]] to manipulate time as they see fit. Their aeonstaves can trap victims in bubbles of slow-time, their chronometrons can shift them out of phase with the normal time flow, and their timesplinter cloaks are comprised of protective casings of crystalised time, rendering inert any blow that does not land in the right fraction of a second.
** The most adept of all Cryptek Chronomancers is Orikan the Diviner, a Necron Cryptek whose hyper-advanced technology allows him to manipulate the time-stream in very far-reaching ways. He is fully capable of time travel and altering events in the past to suit his plans, and he's one of if not the only individual in the galaxy who is. With such incredible potential at his command, one might imagine Orikan to be a major player in the galaxy's wars, but in fact he is all but harmless. The thing about Orikan is that he, like all Necrons, is a million-year-old robot whose programming has degraded severely. In life he wasn't a technologist at all, but an astrologer and court fortune-teller. Thus the only thing Orikan really cares about now is making sure that his reputation for accurate fortune-telling is maintained, and this he does by going back in time and making sure his petty predictions and prognostications come true. Not the other way round - he doesn't visit the future to see what will happen, or come up with plans first and predict their success later, he just makes whatever he's predicted using traditional astrology happen. That's pretty much the total extent of the use he puts his fantastically awesome powers to.
* Spanners in ''TabletopGame/{{Continuum}}'' can travel through both time and space. Traveling in time uses up a spanner's span capacity, while traveling in space does not. Span Ones can travel up to 1 year total in time between 24-hour rest periods, and up to one mile per jump. Span Twos extend their range to 10 years between rests and 10 miles per jump. Span Threes, 100 years and 100 miles. Span Fours get 1000 miles and years, while Span Fives get 10,000. Beyond that, [[ArcWords further information is not available here]].
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'':
** The game has a select few cards that can, in fact, skip or repeat a player's turn. Some are guaranteed (being very powerful) and other are conditional ([[TwentyBearAsses doing something X number of times, for example]]) or left to straight-up chance, like flipping a coin. An example of one such card would be [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Handlers/Image.ashx?multiverseid=96928&type=card Stitch In Time]], from the Ravnica Block.
** For a specific character example, the Blue Planeswalker, [[http://wiki.mtgsalvation.com/article/Teferi Teferi]], specializes in Time magic.
* ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'':
** The Time Wizard. [[Anime/YuGiOh The anime]] typically portrays the card effects as the Wizard using its powers to rapidly age monsters to dust, although certain monsters can actually become stronger after a millenium or so.
** The D-Heroes also have traces of this as many of their abilities are connected with time (like sending enemy monsters into the future).
** Galaxy-Eyes Tachyon Dragon is able to negate card effects and control time to its own advantage during the battle phase. Its Barian-Force upgraded counterpart has an effect that negates the effects of all other cards and resets the entire state of the duel to that of the beginning of the turn and and then averts the occurrence of any unfavorable outcomes during the main phase.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Emulators turn the player into this, at least in the {{Meta}} sense. Save states essentially allow you to rewind to an earlier point and [[SaveScumming try again and again]] until you succeed, and some emulators allow you to slow the game to a crawl so you can react with (from the game's perspective) [[SuperReflexes perfect reflexes]] and pull off otherwise impossible-to-time jumps. Tool-assisted speedruns bring this to its logical conclusion: taking advantage of ''every single frame'' to minimize play time.
* Link in ''VideoGame/{{The Legend of Zelda Oracle|Games}} of Ages'' (to past and present), ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' (between child and adult) and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' (going back to the beginning of the game, slowing time, speeding up time, etc).
* The titular "achrons" in ''VideoGame/{{Achron}}'' are Time Masters. Players can pause time, slow it down or speed it up, jump to alternate moments in time and generally observe the entire timeline ([[DelayedRippleEffect timewaves]] and all). This makes them ideal generals for commanding armies in cross-temporal warfare.
* Time Lord in ''VideoGame/SagaFrontier''. Due to the game's lack of GamePlayAndStorySegregation, there ''isn't'' anything stopping him from [[TimeStandsStill freezing time]] and attacking you.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'':
** When the Titans shaped Azeroth, they chose five breeds of dragon, empowered each of them, and gave them dominion over certain aspects of the world. The Bronze Dragonflight was charged with guarding Azeroth's timeways. Bronze dragonflight questgivers meet your character and get confused about whether they have met you before, they [[ExcusePlot send you to important times in history]] so you can [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong stop someone else from screwing them up]], and their leader is long-missing and is implied to be a bad guy now.
** Nozdormu was even granted knowledge of the exact place and time of his own death, so fighting him would be completely stupid. As soon as the fight goes poorly for him, he will just restart the fight from its time of origin and try a different tactic.
* Darkterror the Faceless Void in ''[[VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients Defence Of The Ancients]]'' has several time related skills, his LimitBreak being the ability to stop time in an area excluding himself
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Celebi (who can travel through time), and Dialga (who is the deity of time).
** In the ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers'' games, [[spoiler:Darkrai]] can travel through time as well. It sort of makes sense, since he could learn Roar of Time in a special event in the main games. [[spoiler:He also corrupted the aforementioned Dialga into Primal Dialga, which also helps.]]
* St. Germain in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaCurseOfDarkness'', though he may be unable to affect anything. Aeon from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaJudgment'' is a more normal example, then there's Zephyr from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaDawnOfSorrow'', and the Chronomage UniqueEnemy (the latter two even including references to ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'''s most well known TimeMaster, Dio Brando.)
* The BigBad of the ''VideoGame/FreedomForce'' series is literally named Timemaster. He's essentially a Galactus analog with power over Time instead of Cosmos. He is only incapable of controlling his own aging process, so he plans to gain immortality by literally destroying time itself, with the unfortunate side effect of killing everything in the Universe except him, something which doesn't seem to bother him much. He also has the problem (for the heroes) that he can, at any given time, revert himself to when he was at his most powerful, making it impossible to defeat him. [[spoiler:In the end, only extremely powerful AppliedPhlebotinum or the aid of the AnthropomorphicPersonification of Chaos is able to make him stay down.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'':
** 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 allow others to take advantage of her time slow (though she ''can'' freeze them in place).
** Kaguya Houraisan. Her powers control the rate of flow of time, dubbed "power over eternity and temporality" (think BulletTime). [[FridgeBrilliance Which saves her from boredom]], since she has {{Immortality}}. There are [=WMGs=] about how she and Sakuya are connected.
* Richard Wong of ''VideoGame/PsychicForce''.
* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'':
** [[ThatOneBoss The Phantom]] from ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' possesses the clock tower in Neverland and casts a curse on the party; every time the big hand moves one full minute, a party member is KO'ed and un-revivable for the rest of the fight. It starts with Peter Pan, then Goofy/Donald, and finally ends with killing Sora ([[PlayerCharacter you]]). There's no way to remove the curse and the only way to survive is to cast [[TimeStandsStill Stop]] on the clock and try to [[TimeLimitBoss beat the Phantom as quickly as possible]].
** [[TheGambler Luxord]] from ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' has this as his element. [[InformedAbility He never seems to do anything useful with it]], but it sounds [[RuleOfCool cooler]] than the element of Compulsive Gambling. Though given how he doesn't seem to be a cheater in terms of personality, it's kinda justified in why he shies away from using it onscreen. His powers also mostly manifest through applying [[TimedMission Timed Missions]] to various tasks such as the fight between him and Sora. That said, in ''[=358/2=] Days'', he's the only one automatically immune to Rewound Defense (the "Time" StatusAilment).
** In ''II'', [[Disney/TheSwordInTheStone Merlin]] was able to create a door that led into a world based on WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts such as ''Steamboat Willie''. In ''3D'', he is also briefly mentioned as creating a YearInsideHourOutside space so [[spoiler:Lea could learn to use a Keyblade.]] Notably, the time travel Merlin uses in ''II'' manages to break ''every rule'' of [[spoiler:Xehanort]]'s method that was established in ''3D'': You can't change the past, you don't remember time traveling when you're done, a version of yourself must exist at the destination, and [[spoiler:you must give up your physical body to do it.]]
** The [[BonusBoss Mysterious Figure]] from ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' demonstrates how a time-wielding boss [[ThatOneBoss is done right.]] One of his tactics involves stopping and rewinding time to recover HP, even reversing the BGM. He has more time-related tricks when he shows up in ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsDreamDropDistance 3D]]'' - in the Japanese version, he even throws out a "[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure TOKI WO TOMARE!]]". Aside from just using the ability in combat, [[spoiler: the "Mysterious Figure"- now known as Young [[BigBad Xehanort]]- also manipulates the events of the story to his liking using TimeTravel.]]
** Sora, Aqua, Terra, Ventus, and Riku are capable of casting the Stop spell (and its stronger forms Stopra and Stopga) in combat to freeze common enemies in place in a small area; while frozen, they can be hit without retaliation and will take all the damage at once when the spell wears off. King [[MickeyMouse Mickey]] takes it a step further in one cutscene, utilizing Stopza to halt not just a few individuals, but ''time itself''.
* Kamui of ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart'' has the Arcana of Time as her default, letting her [[TimeStandsStill freeze opponents in time]], move at SuperSpeed, and use time-delayed copies of herself to [[DoppelgangerSpin evade]] and [[DoppelgangerAttack add to attacks]]. Also, as a side-effect of her Arcana, she's ReallySevenHundredYearsOld.
* The Time Mage class from the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series. Also, the whole point of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' is to master time travel.
* The eponymous character in ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'' can speed up or slow down time, though it's explained in-game as 'visual effects', as the game takes place within a movie film.
* Flash Man, Bright Man and Time Man from the ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' series all have weapons that can either slow or stop time.
* This is the only power the protagonist from ''VideoGame/{{Braid}}'' has, and it gets put to many [[MindScrew fascinating]] uses.
* [[TheChessmaster Moebius the Timestreamer]] and his predecessors in ''VideoGame/LegacyOfKain'', the [[FisherKing guardians]] of time, are among nine sorcerers chosen at birth to guard different aspects of the world. However, Moebius is an unusual example because he ''doesn't'' do things like freeze his enemies or (despite having made the timestreaming chambers,) travel through time himself; in fact, he seldom does anything except [[ManipulativeBastard talk]], but since he has "a certain level of [[TheOmniscient omniscience]]", he is able to carry on conversations with actual time travellers with no TimeTravelTenseTrouble even if the first time they meet him is centuries into the future. He also knows exactly how history is fated to fall out, and can direct his pawns accordingly. Unfortunately, he's NotSoOmniscientAfterAll when a paradox enables history to be shifted onto a different path, and is visibly frightened and out of his depth at such moments. The [[EldritchAbomination Elder God]] has shown similar abilities (and weaknesses), along with the ability to open a passage through time at will.
* Time technology shows up a lot in the ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlertSeries'', with the original breakthroughs made by Einstein. ''Red Alert 2'' introduces the Chrono Legionnaires, who can teleport around and erase other units from history. In the [[AllThereInTheManual original manual]], it's implied that the chronoshift teleportation is actually a case of TimeStandsStill while the unit travels across the map the normal way.
* VideoGame/{{Blinx}} and his fellow Time Sweepers.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland'': [[spoiler:[=LeChuck=] near the end of Chapter 5. When he sees the Vaycaylian warriors throwing their [[ProngsOfPoseidon javelins]] at him at Winslow's order, the villain uses his voodoo power to make [[TimeStandsStill Time Stand Still]] for those outside of [=LeChuck=]'s ship, making the entirety of the ship seem more like a parody of YearInsideHourOutside. Strangely enough, the Crossroads (and Morgan [=LeFlay=] for that matter) don't seem to be affected by the voodoo time freeze.]]
* [[VideoGame/DOTA2 Defense Of The Ancients 2]] has "Faceless Void" whose entire skill set is based on this, most via freezing his foes ([[UnwantedAssistance and sometimes his allies]] in time while he beats on them, as well as dodging damage by moving back in time to before the damage happened. Weaver's ultimate also has traces of this, putting weaver in the position he was a few seconds ago, with the same health as then, it's also implied to be how Disruptor's Glimpse works.[[note]]Yet Glimpse is incredibly similar to Kunkka's X marks the spot, which is instead ''space'' magic[[/note]]
* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'':
** Sonic has this power, but doesn't use it very much (if at all). His rival, Shadow the Hedgehog, uses it much more often, to the point where it can be considered a part of his ElementalPowers. The resident KidFromTheFuture, Silver the Hedgehog, doesn't have this power naturally, but is only relevant to the plot when he time travels.
** In ''VideoGame/SonicGenerations'', the [[SpacetimeEater Time Eater]] can also ''manipulate'' time during the final battle with it; in fact, the [[OminousLatinChanting words sung in its theme]], ''Dominus Tempus'', translate roughly to "Master of Time".
* Zilean from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' holds the title of Chronokeeper, and he lives up to it. He places time bombs (literal ones) on targets that detonate a while later, can rewind time to reduce his cooldowns, and can speed up or slow down time around champions to increasing the movement speed of his allies or decreasing his enemies'. His ultimate ability puts a protective sigil on an ally that will rewind time around them if they die, essentially resurrecting them if they die while the sigil is active. Early-game, his time bombs make him a great nuker, but as the game goes on, he tends to do better in a support role.
* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' has Time Manipulation as a Buff/Debuff set. It's considered one of the best in terms of performance.
* In ''VideoGame/SpaceChannel5 Part 2'', the Japanese version mentions that [[BigBad Purge]] has the ability to bend spacetime.
* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'''s BigBad, Lavos, seems to have some influence on time given that his final boss battle takes place against a [[AmazingTechnicolorBattlefield backdrop]] that changes to scenes spanning history. His evolution in ''VideoGame/ChronoCross''.
* Dr. Nefarious Tropy, the self-proclaimed "Master of Time" from the ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' series.
* ''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]].
** Hermaeus Mora, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[KeeperOfForbiddenKnowledge Knowledge]], is also associated with Fate and Destiny. Mora himself claims to have arisen from [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow detritus concepts ejected from reality]], and is thus a being that exists partially outside of time, giving him the ability to interact with it in usual ways. Some of his [[TomeOfEldritchLore Black Books]] are believed to come from the future, and he has direct (but subtle) influence over fate and destiny.
** Similarly, Meridia, a Daedric Prince associated with LifeEnergy, [[LightIsNotGood Light]], and [[ProudBeauty Beauty]], is said to be able to interact with time in unusual ways. Through the [[EverythingsBetterWithRainbows prismatic refraction of light]], it is said that Meridia can in some small way alter the forward flow of time.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] can learn a [[MakeMeWannaShout Thu'um shout]] which [[RealityWarper freezes time around them]]. The [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] of the game are said to be the children of Akatosh (or possibly [[PiecesOfGod fragments of his very being]]), although [[GameplayAndStorySegregation they're not actually seen manipulating time in a gameplay sense]].
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia2'' has the aptly named Chronos, who's one of the three prime Spirits who watch over the world and a major antagonist. He initially only uses his time manipulation to speed up his movements, but in later fights, will stop time completely for a brief moment and can even reset the battle to its beginning. [[spoiler: The reality-warping abilities of Ludger's Chromatus are the only thing that keeps him from being completely unbeatable.]]
* "Master" might be doing him too much credit, but Gereon Alexius in ''Videogame/DragonAgeInquisition'' is the first mage to be able to manipulate time, something that [[WrongContextMagic should be impossible even with magic]]. It's speculated that the Breach altered the rules of magic in Thedas to make it possible. [[spoiler:One consequence of this is that he cannot travel back to any time before the Breach occurred. Sadly, this means he cannot travel back in time to save his wife and son from a Darkspawn attack that happened before the Breach.]] One of the items he drops when he is defeated [[spoiler:in a BadFuture]] is an amulet that reduces skill cooldown times. [[spoiler:If he is recruited into the Inquisition]], he can continue his research and eventually craft an even better version of it.
* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'':
** Lechku and Nechku are [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot clockwork owl demons]] who can stop time, leading to a somewhat disturbing sight as the screen turns golden and Amaterasu freezes as the giant demon marches step at a time towards you.
** Although much less pronounced, Amaterasu also gains the Veil of Mist ability that lets her slow time for a few seconds.
* ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'':
** Aeon is the deity of time, and so has complete control over it. Her prospective gameplay (that's right, she's a candidate for [=DLC=]) involves summoning mirror images of other cast members from alternate timelines to attack for her (including ones where they become the next [[HumanoidAbomination Skullgirl]]), slowing time, stopping it, unwinding it, taking seconds off the match timer and capturing a bubble in time and all attacks executed within it to be unleashed again later.
** One of the would-be DLC characters Isaac was a time traveler who could use his powers to speed up the countdown timer as well as jump back in time to fight alongside his past self.
* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'':Both Corvo and [[spoiler:Daud]] can slow time, rendering only themselves and anything they touch/kill/posses as able to move normally. Upgrading this ability further allows the complete halt of time. Also [[spoiler:Daud]] as the player character in the DLC can upgrade his Arcane bond ability to allow [[spoiler:summoned assassin allies]] to move normally while time is stopped. Corvo and [[spoiler: Daud]] are both immune to each other's bend time even if they don't posses that ability themselves.
* In ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' Umbra Witches are capable of [[BulletTime slowing down time]] when they are in danger, allowing them to counterattack to devastating effect. There are also several accessories that further amplify an Umbra Witch's time powers, one of which slow down time automatically if she's struck, and another that allows her to activate this ability at any time she chooses. Lumen Sages, the Umbran Witch counterpart, have their own time-based power called [[SuperSpeed Light Speed]], which instead of slowing down time, speeds up time for the Sage. Witches and Sages have also been shown capable of time travelling, Balder the Lumen Sage in the first game, and Bayonetta in the second.
* ''{{VideoGame/Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' gives us Sichte Meister, who serves as an Expy of [[JoJosBizarreAdventure Dio]], [[Franchise/MegaMan Flash Man]] and [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Sakuya]], being able to use her ability, Die geplante Zukunft, manipulate time and use a variety of attacks while time is stopped. According to her profile, whenever Die geplante Zukunft is used, it happens to have a profound effect on history.
* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' plays with this trope: [[spoiler:[[TheDeterminator Any sufficiently determined individual]] can escape death by winding back time and returning to a save point. Flowey, being filled with Determination, took advantage of this ability until the human came along and their Determination overpowered his. In the neutral routes, when Flowey absorbs the six human souls, he gains the ability to create and return to save points, which he uses to try and get any attacks that miss to hit.]]
* The Zoni from the ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' series are this, but are closer to TimePolice in how they operate - they can control and maintain the flow of time with the Great Clock which acts as their homeworld, but they're also able to slow time manually and are immune to any changes to the timestream such as someone stopping time, an ability they can pass onto others. [[spoiler: Clank, as the son of the Zoni's leader Orvus, also counts.]]
* [[GenkiGirl Tracer]] from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' can manipulate her own personal time. She can move forward in time so quickly it looks like a FlashStep, or rewind her time to be back where she was three seconds ago.
* Marquai from ''VideoGame/NexusClash'' is the patron god of time, but is also the patron of ''ingenuity'' and so is always looking for ways to screw with time or use it differently than he did before. Sometimes this confers Time Master powers on his followers as well.
* [[spoiler:Claude Trilleo]] from ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'' is a time traveller, which [[PhysicalGod makes her omnipotent by the setting’s rules]]. In addition to TimeTravel, she’s able to teleport; stop, speed up, or slow down time for herself and/or others; create duplicates of herself by skipping back a second in time; create pocket dimensions; summon meteors from interdimensional rifts; and even create and destroy alternate timelines and universes on a whim. The only thing holding her in check is the fact that using too much of her power will result in [[RealityBreakingParadox reality-destroying]] [[TimeCrash temporal paradoxes]], [[GodsHandsAreTied which limits her to more subtle displays of power]].
* Time is an element in ''VideoGame/IAmSetsuna'', and the game's Time-elemental party member, Aeterna, can stop or slow the time of enemies, speed up her allies, alter time flow to keep status buffs in effect longer, or combine it with the SpaceMaster aspects of the element to [[RealityWarper interfere with cosmic laws]]. While this looks over the top for the scope of [=RPG=] game powers, FlavorText tells you that the Time element is difficult to master on top of being physically and mentally taxing, so even Aeterna's "cosmic law interference" just amounts to messing with the game's probability-based status buffing mechanic. [[spoiler:However, the person she's a clone of is capable of causing world-scale {{Groundhog Day Loop}}s spanning years.]]
* The Vex from ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'' laugh in the face of "linear progression of time". They not only move units through time from both the past and future, the ontological weaponry they're developing within the Vault of Glass, itself a meeting point of multiple timelines, have the ability to complete remove a subject from the fabric of space and time like they never existed to begin with.
* The 2nd ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' game gave Spyro the ability to slow time, stating it was the Power of the Purple Dragon.
* ''Videogame/SouthParkTheFracturedButWhole'' has the player learning various time-altering [[{{Fartillery}} farts]] that can be used in both combat and to solve environmental puzzles. You can reverse time (which cancels an opponent's turn in combat), stop time (which lets you land a few free hits for a few seconds) and even summon a past version of yourself to help you out. Near the end you can actually time travel, which is only used for plot purposes.
* In ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'', Sissel has the powers to go back into time 4 minutes before a person's death. He can do this as many times as he wants as long the body has recently died. There are other Ghost Trick abilities in the game, but Sissel's rewind time powers is often stated to be [[SuperpowerLottery the most useful of them all.]]

* There are two major groups in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' with mastery over time:
** Time is one of the powers available to Sburb players, and one of the [[SpaceMaster two]] which must occur in every session. [[TheLancer Dave Strider]] is the Knight of Time in the human session, [[EmotionlessGirl Aradia Megido]] is the Maid of Time in the troll session, and Damara is the Witch of Time in [[spoiler:the pre-Scratch troll session]]. All are in charge of timeline management - using their powers to establish and take advantage of {{stable time loop}}s to ensure things proceed as they must, and to provide [[TrialAndErrorGameplay a way to avert]] {{bad future}}s should things go wrong ([[HarderThanHard which they have... often]]). All use music-themed {{Magic Feather}}s to travel through time - Dave uses turntables, while Aradia and Damara use music boxes; after [[spoiler: [[CameBackStrong ascending to the God Tiers]], Aradia is strong enough in her time powers to freeze [[DiscOneFinalBoss Jack]] [[PhysicalGod Noir]] in time without any assistance, however temporarily it may have been]]. Also, both Dave and Damara's Lands house the item necessary to initiate [[ResetButton the Scratch]], itself a massive burst of time energy.
** The Felt each have a different power that allows them to manipulate time or perceive things in the past or future. Well, except for [[DumbMuscle Biscuits]], whose "power" is hiding in an oven that he thinks lets him time travel into the future. [[TheSlowPath Technically true]], even though he's just traveling at the same rate as everyone else. [[spoiler: Actually, his oven doesn't have time powers; it has ''[[HammerSpace space]]'' powers.]]
** [[BiggerBad Lord English]] has absolute dominion over time. He has the ability to travel to any point in time, anywhere in any physical (or non-physical) location. He can even travel outside of time itself. So he isn't just ''coming'' for us. He's already here. [[spoiler:Lord English was originally the cherub Caliborn, the time player (specifically, Lord of Time) in a failed Sburb session.]]
* ''[[Webcomic/M9Girls M9 Girls!]]'': Any can generate a bubble inside of which time almost stops completely.
* ''Webcomic/WaywardSons'': Nysus can speed or slow time in a localized area. He first used it to [[MundaneUtility rapidly ferment wine]].
* ''Webcomic/HeroesUnite'': Timesweep. With sufficient technological assistance and a powerboost he can send people through time. Most of the time he can 'just' slow down and speed up time for specific individuals.

[[folder: Web Original]]
* In ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', Gary/Gamma's special AI ability is to manipulate time. The Meta steals it between ''Blood Gulch Chronicles'' and ''Revelation''.
* 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 abilities to age/de-age (from light) and restore/degrade (from dark) people and objects.
* WordOfGod says there is no time travel in the Literature/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.
* Virginia from ''WebVideo/ThePlatoonOfPowerSquadron''. At first she can only make [[TimeStandsStill time stop]], but then she and the gang do a little experimenting and discover she can [[spoiler: unfreeze people and create portals to other times and places. There are a few side effects, such as portals to the past being invisible from that end. Naturally, Donald ends up getting lost once.]]
* A somewhat limited example, Clockblocker from ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' can put objects or people in temporal stasis with a single touch.
** Dispatch can make a bubble of sped-up time around himself and a few other people. He uses it for combat, as a battlefield medic and as a force-multiplier for heroes whose powers need a ramp-up period.
** Cody aka Perdition aka [[spoiler:Yangban No. Thirty-Six]] can for all intents and purposes 'rewind' an object or person back a few seconds in time.
** Phir Sē can create portals that deliver their contents forwards or backwards in time [[spoiler:which he exploits to create an infinite loop, allowing for an attack with effectively unlimited energy.]]
** [[spoiler:The fourth Endbringer, Khonsu,]] can create inescapable bubbles of sped up time that cause anyone trapped within to starve to death or die of old age.
** [[spoiler: Gray Boy]] [[AndIMustScream can trap people in seemingly infinite time loops]], as well as revert himself automatically to a previous state to prevent injuries.
* Tempo from ''Series/WarpZoneProject''. He has the kind that doesn't permit time travelling, unless it's greatly boosted. There is a character who can boost other people's powers in the work, but he is one of Tempo's enemys and hence only helps in EnemyMine situations.
* The ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'' episode where Ratchet and Clank fought Jak and Daxter has this and compares the two versions directly. Jak can use his SuperMode of Light Jak to slow time to a crawl which allows him to use it to shoot a defenceless Ratchet. Clank can also do this, but his time-manipulation is slightly slower than Jak's. [[spoiler: Unfortunately for Jak, Clank is flat-out immune to any attempts to alter time and can pass this skill onto other people. Ratchet dodged Jak's attack as a result.]]
* Tony the Talking Clock from ''WebVideo/DontHugMeImScared'' can move and transport objects backwards and forwards through time at will, as well as speeding up or slowing how fast an object moves through time.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In the Season 5 finale of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Starlight Glimmer evidently TookALevelInBadass into this -- managing to modify Equestria's only known TimeTravel spell from something limited to the point of nigh-uselessness... into something [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Dialga]] would be proud of. This predictably leads to some {{Bad Future}}s the good guys must sort through.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'': features a villain called Francis Gray who has the ability to reverse time up to 20 seconds, so he can relive what he just did and avoid mistakes.
* ''Franchise/{{Ben10}}'':
** Professor Paradox. Thanks to a TimeTravel experiment gone wrong and [[TheAgeless thousands of years of practice]], he's capable of displacing himself across time and space at will. He's also immune to time manipulation done by outside forces.
** Paradox's ArchNemesis, Eon, is also a time master who can travel through time at will, age enemies to dust, and cause [[GrandTheftMe cross-time brain swaps]].
** There's also Clockwork, whose entire species, the Chronosapiens, can manipulate time.
** Special mention goes to Maltruant, the [[FinalBoss final]] BigBad of ''Omniverse'', who's a stronger than average, rogue Chronosapien who wants to rule time itself.
* Clockwork in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom''. The Observants who presumably rule the Ghost Zone see a linear timeline; Clockwork sees ''everything'', as in all the possible choices and futures.
* Slow Mobius from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty''.
* Parodied on ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' with Chronos, '''Master of All Time!''' *DramaticThunder*: A [[FunnyAnimal talking Grizzly bear]] who had dubbed himself '''Master of All Time!''' *DramaticThunder* due to having stuffed his cave full of watches that he all meticulously kept precise time on. Well, except the VCR clock. That one was beyond even ''his'' vast and immaterial powers.
* Elita One from ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers''.
* Vector Prime from ''WesternAnimation/TransformersCybertron''.
* The [[SdrawkcabName Xelor]] class in ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' are time mages, and casually do all of the [[TimeStandsStill associated]] [[TeleportSpam tricks]], except for the aforementioned TimeTravel. The [[WellIntentionedExtremist main villain]] goes to some unsavory lengths [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong to try and prove that last part wrong]].
* Chronozoid on ''WesternAnimation/SkysurferStrikeForce'' complete with VillainTeleportation and of course TimeTravel.
* The Pastmaster from ''WesternAnimation/SwatKats'', an [[OurLichesAreDifferent undead]] EvilSorceror with the ability to travel through time, and with the [[SpellBook Tome of Time]], summon creatures from different eras.
* ''Mighty Man and Yukk'' battled the Timekeeper.
