NDbportmanfan 1,

For your consideration:

Adam, Jacob, Nick and Lou
John Cusack
, Clark Duke, Craig Robinson, and Rob Corddry in Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1231587/mediaviewer/rm3978006272
A malfunctioning time machine at a ski resort takes a man back to 1986 with his two friends and nephew, where they must relive a fateful night and not change anything to make sure the nephew is born.

Legends of Tomorrow (Mick Rory, Ray Palmer, Nate Heywood, Sara Lance, Jefferson Jackson and others)
Dominic Purcell, Brandon Routh, Nick Zano, Caity Lotz, and Franz Drameh
Legends of Tomorrow (2016)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4532368/mediaviewer/rm2981255168
Focuses on time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter, who has to recruit a rag-tag team of heroes and villains to help prevent an apocalypse that could impact not only Earth, but all of time.

Time travel is a common trope for science fiction films and television series. You may wish to put the restriction that time travel is the major emphasis.

Added, I do have Rip Hunter on the list. The shows lineup of characters has changed and would be a large list. I might add Sarah with Rip though.

"DC's Legends of Tomorrow" is one of the best TV shows right now. Goofy, well-acted, adventurous: pure comic book fun with quite a serious drama sometimes hitting you when least expected.

Easier & quicker to scroll down and see all on a Titles list (and can search for text etc) Sample:

Well my plan is to focus on the character and not the show as a whole. The voting would most likely change if I had titles instead of images. 

Ex. if I did a poll about characters with a split personality an image of Two-Face would get far less votes than Hulk but The Dark Knight would easily beat The Incredible Hulk.

Besides there are title suggestions on time travel already.

Agreed, this should most definitely be an image list.

ACT_1, 

Just because it's easier to view a title list, doesn't mean we should always use title lists. It all depends on the topic of the poll.
And besides, once/if this becomes a poll, you won't have to click 35 times.

NDbportmanfan 1,

You may find this article interesting, even though it demonstrates the wide variety of time travel tropes:

A great and tough list to choose from, although most likely I will vote for Donnie Darko.

It is quite a polarizing movie which many people don't find appealing for some reason. I've just re-watched it a few days ago with a friend who liked overall movie but thought that ending was too nihilistic. For me, though, everything in this movie works to the point that it is one of my 25 all-time favorites. That list, I fear, will extend to at least 30 in a few years, as I have a few candidates; overall list of just favorites (without that very special subjective value) might be a few hundreds. :)

Please correct this ungrammatical sentence:
I will not being included characters that have time traveled in a one off episode or movie.

'Good poll. 'Tough choice. I like tough choices - they make a poll more fun. :)

May I suggest just a few small grammatical edits? ('below in bold: a comma instead of semi-colon after "May," and a comma after "Now,' and a comma after "release.")

With the release of Deadpool 2 (2018)in May, we will be introduced to another time traveler named Cable. Now, in honor of the release, which character(s) below is your favorite time traveler?

I think I watched it when it was new to Netflix which was probably 5 years ago. I enjoyed the movie and gave it an 8 but I can hardly remember anything about it besides the premise and the ending. Aubrey Plaza was perfectly cast for this movie.
