Ultimecia, Dissidia Final Fantasy

Geralt, there are four dimensions - length, width, height...and time. What would you have me fall in love with - width? Come now - tsk, tsk tsk.

Well, haven't we gotten far for a pair of fuzzy marsupials? I am Doctor Nefarious Tropy — Master of Time and inventor of the very Time Twister machine you see before you. Uka Uka and Dr Cortex have sent me to end this little charade, so you won't be leaving my area with the crystals! I swear it!

You are understanding that Chronos is not really as he is appearing in the minds of humanity. They are following Chronos down the straight path that he is desiring. They are not experiencing the then, only the now. They are not seeing the will, only the has. We are outside that narrow path; we are enlightened.
We are existing in the Now. There are no beginnings or endings; our Now is spreading all of time before us as a tapestry. In the Now, you are studying with me. In the Now, you are Disciple, Adept and Master - all three.
Mage: The Ascension - Core Rulebook (1st edition)

The Time Gem: with it, I can reach back into the primordial past or delve into the far distant future. Nothing that ever was or ever will be can hide from my inspection. And if I find anything which offends, I can modify it to fit my every need or want. Infinity is clay waiting for me to mold it.

Bruno Bucciarati: Is this... who was behind the pillar...? It's me! Wh-what? What's going on?!
The Boss: I decided to show you... as a parting gift. This is the end. So why don't I tell you... what you have witnessed and laid hands upon was your own future self! The "you" from a few seconds past saw your future self. This is the ability of my King Crimson! I eradicated time and leapt past it!

"Within King Crimson's ability, this world's time disappears, and no one remembers the movements they made within this segment of time. The clouds in the sky don't realize they've broken apart. A flame that's extinguished doesn't even realize the movement it went out. All that remains in this world are the results. In the world where time has been eliminated, all movement becomes pointless! I am the only one who can react to these movements. I can see every single one of your movements! This is King Crimson's ability!"
The Boss aka Diavolo, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Vento Aureo

"The ruler of time, traveling beyond time and space to reign over past and future..."
The most poignant phase used by multiple characters to describe Kamen Rider Zi-O

Just as you gave Kaecilius powers from your dimension, I brought a little power from mine. This is time. Endless, looped, time.

Shout at time, and command it to obey, as the world around you stands still.
