* Being a corpsicle it's an important plot device in ''Literature/TheWorldAtTheEndOfTime'', for good or bad, and thanks to it along with TimeDilation the two main human protagonists become as old as the Universe at the end of the book.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/WingsOfFire'', [[spoiler:Queen Diamond]] sentences [[spoiler:Foeslayer]] to a particularly cruel version of this; she is encased in ice whenever [[spoiler:Diamond]] kills her, and then can be revived by typing her with her spear so she can kill her over and over again. It gets to the point where [[spoiler: Foeslayer, after 2000 years]], says that she'd rather just be killed because she isn't completely frozen in time and is still starving, making it more miserable for her to be alive.

** Later on, in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', Iron Man refers to him as a "Capsicle". A brief flashback sequence also shows a clearly-frozen Cap being examined by scientists. Realistically, the scientists are '''very shocked''' when they discover he's still alive.

* Played straight in an episode of ''Series/SeaQuestDS'', "Games", where a notorious war criminal is kept in a cryogenic freezer - until the freezer malfunctions, at which point everyone realizes that the killer pulled a DeadPersonImpersonation by killing the prison warden and putting him in the freezer instead.

* In the ''Videogame/{{Half-Life}}'' series, [[spoiler:stasis used as a plot device when long passage of time is needed, as the game follows the philosophy that everything the main character experiences must also be experienced by the player, and it wouldn't be too popular with either gamers or programmers if they had to go through several years of mundane experiences. So far, stasis has been used three times throughout the series: Once in the twenty-or so years between ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|1}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'', once to depict the passage of a week in the middle of Half-Life 2, and a much shorter stay of less than a day between ''Half-Life 2'' and Episode One.]] The "week" example was half stasis, half TimeTravel.

** Explicitly used as a poor man's time machine by Ashly Hanson, one of the Lady Macbeth's crew; by the events of the trilogy he is chronologically well over two hundred, thanks to spending fifty of every fifty-five years in zero-tau. He averts the [[Creator/LarryNiven "corpsicle" problem]] thanks to a well-run trust and being very skilled at a necessary job which doesn't change much over the years.
