* In ''VideoGame/{{Castlevania 64}}'', the Sun and Moon cards can be used to advance the current time so you can (among other things) have certain timed encounters and battle vampires during the day when they're weaker.

[[spoiler: but abusing them isn't recommended because after so many days cycles pass it gives the vampire hunter Vincent time to try and fail to kill the fake Dracula, leading to an optional boss fight and the bad ending.]]

Then he [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2010/01/14/episode-1210-early-mourning/ does it one more time]], obviously sapping his teammates out of their meager time remaining.

->"Did you try to play the Sun's Song? Like I told you before, with that song, you can turn day to night or night to day whenever you want."

* The "Sun's Song" in ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' moves time to the next dusk/dawn.
** The "Song of Passing" ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' does the same, and sound wise, appears the same as the Sun's Song, just under a new name.[[note]]And in some translations (like the French one), it kept the old name.[[/note]]
** ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' is all about time manipulation, so not only is there a song to skip ahead ("Song of Double Time"), but slow it down ("Inverted Song of Time") and reset time ("Song of Time"), which also doubles as the way to save your game.
*** In addition, you can talk to a scarecrow and ask for it to dance. Dancing with the scarecrow turns day into night and vice versa. Useful early in the game, when you don't have the ocarina yet and you need to skip to the night of the final day after you've looked into the telescope at the Astral Observatory.
