* Parodied in one episode of ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' where a bully attempts to punch Malcolm in the face while everyone else in the schoolyard watches. The action goes into slow motion and Malcolm ducks to the side to avoid being hit. The bully's momentum keeps going and, while still in slow motion, makes an OhCrap expression as he sees his fist is now going towards Stevie, who is in a wheelchair, and is unable to stop himself. The impact of the punch is just a light tap on the cheek, but once the speed returns to normal, Stevie suddenly falls over in his wheelchair.

* [[Creator/ProductionIG Used and abused for]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome great effect]] in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. starting with the opening theme.
* [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Giorno Giovanna's]] Gold Experience is absolutely brutal. It may look like a simple punch, but in fact, it accelerates your perception of time, and all the time it takes to the person to realize that it was hit, to put it lightly, it's like you've been hit it by a truck, and only after that happens you realize all the pain and suffering you've been through. Ohh, and the catch? It heightens your senses, so it's going to hurt you, [[UpToEleven a lot]].

* Most modern 2D [[FightingGame fighting games]] have this to varying degrees, with some attacks only dealing a few frames of hitstop to help people confirm combos, to special moves and super moves that have a lot of them, to help drive their impact home.

Freezing or slowing time right at the moment of an impact to create the impression that something hits harder, or for dramatic effect. For particularly dramatic scenes it may continue into a full-blown {{Overcrank}}. Some video games will also use it to make combo input easier. Trope name comes from the term used for this in the ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' fighting game series.

* ''[[Franchise/JakAndDaxter Jak X: Combat Racing]]'' would do this when the player pulled off certain kill moves, along with a close up zoom of the wrecked car and one of several randomized messages appearing on the screen. The player's car also got this treatment when they were killed. Both of these could be toggled off in the menu, even in mid-race.
