* When you give Naomi the Military Secret or [[spoiler:Japanese Sword]] in ''NoMoreHeroes'', she tells you to come back later for a new beam katana. "Later", of course, means "as long as it takes to leave and come back in"... though they're so expensive it's more like "leave, do a few assassination side-jobs, come back in".

[[AC:SimulationGame]] * In some of the ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' games, you'll be kicked outside while your wife is delivering your child (obviously not in those games where [[DistaffCounterpart you're playing a female farmer]], since she's doing the delivery herself, though her husband may still be told to leave). Whether you can reenter right away or not varies by game; in some, reentering your house will kick the clock to evening, and in others, you must wait around on your farm until after a certain point in the afternoon or evening (this gives you a chance to work, though usually with the caveat that you can't leave your farm itself, so no gathering in the mountains or talking to other villagers).

** ''LinkToThePast'' did this as well with the Level 3 Sword. If you left the building and immediately returned, the smiths wouldn't be finished, but all you have to do to trigger the flag is leave the larger map screen where the shop was located. A faster way is to get there in the Dark World, whip out the mirror, go to the Light World, drop the thing off, then step in your mirror portal and immediately warp back. All done!

* A variant in ''WorldOfWarcraft'' is equally silly. You're told to wait, but three seconds later he's done. However, there's a good reason it doesn't happen for more than a few seconds in [=WoW=]. Griefers could simply log off and wait in the building to prevent anyone from turning in quests to that NPC. * Quite a few contacts in ''CityOfHeroes'' have dialog that reflects passage of time in between missions in a story arc, even if you select the next mission right on the heels of the last. "I'll have this mysterious substance analyzed to find out what it is. Good, you're back. I had that stuff analyzed and..."

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' does this with the Biggoron Sword. It takes four or five days for him to finish making the sword, after you run through the mother of all fetch quests. In this case, it can be accelerated through use of the sun's song.

No aversions.
** ''LinkToThePast'' did this as well with the Level 3 Sword. If you left the building and immediately returned, the smiths wouldn't be finished, but all you have to do to trigger the flag is leave the larger map screen where the shop was located. *** A faster way is to get there in the Dark World, whip out the mirror, go to the Light World, drop the thing off, then step in your mirror portal and immediately warp back. All done! ** Averted in ''MajorasMask'', since the blacksmith requires a full day to reforge the sword. It's ready by dawn. Similarly, you have to wait a few days for Biggoron's Sword to get finished in [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]. *** With the Biggoron's Sword you can just use the Song of Sun multiple times to make the days go really fast. More Biggoron, he worked FAST. *** And with the swords in ''Majora's Mask,'' you can use the song of double time to jump ahead by half a day. Doing the full upgrade (which frankly is the only worthwhile way to go about this since the first upgrade isn't permanent) takes two days, which means three or four songs - or else an almost annoyingly long wait.

** A few such occurrences have the NPC completing the task just by ''re-initiating conversation with them after they told Geralt to wait''.

* ''{{Final Fantasy IV}}'' has one of these when a blacksmith is forging you a weapon. The flag triggers as soon as you go to the moon. ** Attempting to breed chocobos in ''FinalFantasyVII'' involves "wait time." The flag is triggered once you fight about ten battles at any spot. ** In ''FinalFantasyVIII'', after finishing the first half of the Shumi Village sidequest (when Attendant is assigned to help sculpt Laguna's statue), the quest will not continue until you exit to the world map and re-enter the village.

* In ''{{Diablo}} 2'', Act 3, Alkor the alchemist tells you to busy yourself while he's experimenting with the ashes of Ku'yleh, but clicking on him again is more than enough.
