* In the season 1 finale of ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', Rick throws a massively destructive party while Beth and Jerry are away, ending up with them storming in the sidewalk to flip out at him. To avoid upsetting them, he freezes time, allowing him, Morty, and Summer to clean up the house before Beth and Jerry reach the front door. In the season 2 premier, it's revealed that they kept time frozen for several months, apparently just to relax.

Characters are often pressed for time. Maybe they overbook themselves for a specific time period, or maybe they just have a very busy life general, what with having the WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld all the time. Perhaps they have a deadline that is just physically impossible to meet in the allotted time.

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 3.5 Edition, a common trick for [[TheArchmage powerful spellcasters]] is to create a PocketDimension where [[YearInsideHourOutside time flows much faster]], so that they can teleport away from a challenging foe, rest and refresh their spells, [[CrazyPrepared research the optimal means of countering them]], and reenter the fight at an advantage.
* The ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' spell "Psychic Asylum" lets the caster spend fifteen minutes in a MentalWorld while only an instant passes in reality, during which time they have an [[PhotographicMemory infallible memory]]. It's also enough subjective time to prepare a fresh spell or wait out the duration of a mind-affecting spell.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' uses this surprisingly infrequently:
** One notable exception is the episode [[Recap/DoctorWho2010CSAChristmasCarol "A Christmas Carol"]], in which the Doctor has roughly an hour to save a crashing space ship. His solution takes ''years'' to execute.
** A variation appears in [[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor "The Day of the Doctor"]], in which a centuries-long calculation to disintegrate a door with the [[MagicWand sonic screwdriver]] is carried out instantly by having an earlier incarnation of the Doctor program it in and a later incarnation read out the result from a centuries-older version of the device. [[spoiler:The same technique is used on a larger scale to enable all the Doctor's incarnations working in concert to isolate Gallifrey from the timestream, removing it from the Time War without destroying it.]]

* Used in a farcical novel by Creator/HarryHarrison called ''Literature/TheTechnicolorTimeMachine'', where a desperate movie director, lacking a budget for a historical film about Vikings, hires a crackpot inventor, who actually builds a working time machine, to film the whole thing in the past, saving money on sets and actors. Since they have to deliver in a short time frame, they hire a scriptwriter and send him to an island in the past for a month to write the script. After a few such trips, they get the script and start filming, at which point they use the time machine to skip forward and back (setting up {{Stable Time Loop}}s). All nearly seems lost when the director is forced to go to his boss's office empty-handed, only for his future self to appear with the film all done and tell him to keep working (also giving him a piece of paper with a diagram of what to do to get to that point). In the end, the film is done and is a big hit, and the director realizes that [[spoiler:the Vikings only discovered the New World because a film director wanted to make a movie]].

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5639518/1/ The Harem War,]]'' Harry Potter uses special time turner to live every day 3 times. It specifically told that it doesn't cause him to age faster. Herminone (and later Narcissa) manages his schedule. He need this because he need to finish magical education, train to fly (as in 'muggle combat aircraft'), take his part in governing Duchess of Charenwell (foreign policy issues ARE Duke's responsibility and this includes dealing with Magical Britain) and there is small issue of his harem of 26 girls and it's expected that he WILL be sexually active with everybody except Gabriel Delacour. He don't wanted such large harem. Hermione don't wanted it too but alternatives were much worse.

* In an issue of ''LoveAndCapes'', superhero (and accountant) Crusader forgets to do his own taxes until 11:30 p.m. on April 15. He has to have them finished and in the mail by midnight. Even using his super-speed powers, he is unable to finish them until 2 a.m. the next day. This is no problem, since he lives in the Eastern time zone; He just flies at super speed to the west coast, and mails his taxes in before midnight Pacific time.
