* ''Literature/TheStarsMyDestination'' just might be the earliest example of this effect:

-->"''The men hurled themselves at Foyle. He backed a step and pressed his tongue against his upper incisors. Neural circuits buzzed and every sense and response in his body was accelerated by a factor of five.
-->The effect was an instantaneous reduction of the external world to extreme slow action. Sound became a deep garble, color shifted down the spectrum to the red. The two assailants seemed to float towards him with dream-like languor. To the rest of the world Foyle became a blur of action. He sidestepped the blow inching towards him, walked around the man, raised him and threw him towards the crater in the living-room. He threw the second man. To Foyle's accelerated senses their bodies seemed to drift slowly, still in mid-stride, fists inching forward, open mouths emitting heavy clotted sounds.
-->Foyle whipped to the women cowering in the bed.
-->`Wsthrabdy?' the blur asked.
-->The woman shrieked.
-->Foyle pressed his upper incisors again, cutting off the acceleration. The external world shook itself out of slow motion back to normal. Sound and color leaped up the spectrum and the two jackals disappeared through the crater and crashed into the apartment below.''"

* Two instances in the climax of ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}} 3: Web of Whadows'': the first when Nuju flips around a string of Visorak web, causing two Visorak to collide underneath him; and later when Vakama blasts Matau with a spinner. As the camera angle changes, it becomes obvious Matau is a [[SpecialEffectFailure flat, 2D animated image]].

* The Autobots have an ability simply called "Focus" in TransformersDevastation. It works basically like Bayonetta's Witch Time, only it lasts much shorter and will only give them enough time to counter attack an opponent.

** Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' features a young Quicksilver. His scenes usually just show his movement as a blur, but his bullet-time sequence, as well as highlighting how he sees the world when he runs, shows him to be not just fast enough to dodge bullets meant for him -- he's fast enough to [[spoiler:artfully rearrange them in flight so that they do not hit his allies. AFTER running a lap of the room and inventively messing with over half a dozen shooters on the opposing side]].

**And beginning of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2IyosN7H3U this Ukrainian web-series episode]] has Slowcopper, a CaptainErsatz of Quicksilver who only does something with super-speed when he does it slowly. As a result, he doesn't run in his super-speed mode but merely walks, constantly doing seemingly pointless things to slow himself down (such as looking at his reflection in the kettle and tossing around some plastic bags), so he can be faster.
