* As an homage to this trope's frequent usage in classic cartoons, ''TabletopGame/{{Toon}}'' allows players to mail-order items and have them delivered by their next turn. However, the items ordered are more likely than not "shoddy goods" that will backfire on their users.

* Cornerstore.com is renowned for their speedy deliveries in the film ''WesternAnimation/{{Storks}}''. [[spoiler:So the protagonists make use of it to get back to the warehouse just as quickly by ordering something off the site, and then issuing a return with the company and hiding inside of the box.]]

* Also, in the cartoon where Characters/BugsBunny squares off against the opera singer, he orders a set of ear-muffs through the mail. They arrive in seconds, [[RuleOfFunny while the letter is still in the mail box.]]

* Items in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' prequel ''CrisisCore'' are bought over Zack's company-issue cellphone. The items appear in in your inventory the moment you purchase them, even if you're miles from civilization.
** VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII does this too, just using save points instead of a cell phone.
* The [[TheMafiya Russian Mafia]] black marketeers in ''{{Mercenaries}}: Playground of Destruction'' might as well start identifying themselves with the tagline "delivered by airlift in 30 seconds or less."

* In the Legend of Zelda game ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', it is possible to acquire a cow from the Lon Lon Ranch. This cow will soon show up at your house all the way over in Kokiri Forest... your ''tree house.'' Which is accessed by a slender vertical ladder. How they get the cow up there is anybody's guess.

* The relatively obscure ''VideoGame/SheepDogNWolf'' (based on the [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Ralph Wolf cartoons]]) enabled you to post an order for an item in a certain mailbox, only for it to arrive by air mail seconds later. Sometimes next to the mailbox, other times in ridiculously out of the way places.

** VideoGame/ManiacMansion established the Edison house as having some kind of magic mailbox. Weird Ed's package and mailing off a manuscript or demo tape to Three Guys Publishing are essential to several of the story endings.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' imposes a one-hour delay on most ingame mail, including earnings from selling on the Auction House - less for realism than to avoid abuse. However, the delay is removed between members of the same guild or characters on the same account - some items can even be delivered cross-faction. And items you buy on the Auction House are delivered instantly as well, as is most mail from NPC's.

* According to a mangaka-approved doujin from ''Anime/DanceInTheVampireBund'', Lorenzo Pharmaceuticals (The vampire-owned corporation that mass-produces the artificial blood Stigma) has this reputation. At one point a desperate doctor working in a field hospital in the middle of Afghanistan that was cut off from all communication and was desperately running low on blood tromped out an order for Stigma in the dirt outside the hospital. Two crates were air-dropped in less than 48 hours later.
