* ''VideoGame/GhostTrick'' takes place over the handful of hours between sundown and sunrise in one night, since Sissel's told he'll disappear once the sun rises. An incredibly complex amount of stuff happens during that time, though.
** [[spoiler:And then you time-travel ten years into the past, if only for four minutes.]]
* The events of ''VideoGame/HalfLife'' take place no longer than about 48 hours of the game, as it was late afternoon next day by the time Gordon got to the Lambda Complex. Including the expansion packs, the events of the first game probably take no more than 4 days total.

*** It is unclear how much times passes between the first and second games since Gordon is put into a pocket dimension at the end of the first one and leaves at the start of the second one. The games could occur consecutively, which means that for Gordon the entire series could be, from his point of view, six incredibly busy days.

* From the perspective of its protagonist, ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'' seems to take place in the course of two very busy days, at most. Otherwise, it took about sixty years. Your choice. The first film begins in October 25 1985 at 8:35 and Marty travels to 1955 around 1:21 of the 26th. There he spends a week (from November the 5th to the 12th) only to return to 10 minutes before he first went back in 1985. He wakes up on the morning of October 26 and travels, along with the Doc and Jennifer, to 2015 where he spends a day. Then he spends another day in the alternate 1985, the whole of November 12 of 1955 again but this time he spends the night and in the next morning he travels back to 1885, where he spends another week and then he returns to October 26 of 1985. At the end, he spent '''16 days''' time traveling in two days. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d by Doc when they go back to 1955.

** Most of the individual movies also take place over a few days at most. Post-''Film/TheAvengers2012'', this helps justify why none of the heroes go to their friends for help: There's just not time.
