Time Travel is the ability to travel to different points in the past or future. While not directly damaging, time travel can be used to defeat one’s opponent while they are weaker or more vulnerable. Alternatively, some users can exploit paradoxes such as the grandfather paradox to erase foes from existence.
- May be unable to travel to different points in space, and instead remain in the same spot but in different time periods, which may possibly result in telefrag.
- Users may require a specific device or ability, and thus the user may be rendered unable to time travel if they somehow lose said method.
- Certain verses have rules against how the user may change the past, and changing the past may be fruitless in a deterministic universe.
- User may not have enough information about their opponents to find them in the past and defeat them in a more vulnerable state.
- It is possible that the past version of the person that the user targets is protected by other entities who will fight back against the user if needed.
