* In the original ''MiracleOn34thStreet'', Kris Kringle's lawyer, Fred Gailey, interrupts the judge just as he is about to sign the commitment order for Kris. However, Fred immediately points out that even if he had been too late to stop the judge, he could have simply filed a habeus corpus motion and challenged the commitment anyway, meaning the nick of time entrance just meant that Mr. Gailey was spared some extra work for his client.

* ''AroundTheWorldInEightyDays'' ends the third to last chapter with Fogg concluding he has arrived too late and lost his bet, leaving him ruined. However, the penultimate chapter has him suddenly arriving just in time to win after all. As the surprised reader wonders how he pulled that off, the narrator explains that Fogg forgot to account for gaining a day after crossing the International Date Line, meaning he arrived early without knowing it and would never have realized his mistake in time if his love, Aouda, hadn't set off a chain of events that alerted Fogg he still had time to win the bet.

* ''WalkerTexasRanger'': Regularly used, to varyingly degrees. A frequent use will be a split second before the villain is about to leave town, kill someone or carry out a particularly evil act (e.g., committ a huge bank robbery and kill hundreds of people inside), only for Walker and Trivette to arrive at the last second with an army of police officers – and, after interrupting the vile act, beat up the bad guys.

* Due to the way that actions are triggered in videogames, players cannot help but arrive in the nick of time. This can result in the appearance of a world which is so dangerous that it begs the question of how anyone survives long enough for the hero to arrive on scene. The answer in ''SystemShock'' games is...they don't survive. The player is always too late, up to the nick of time, and can only witness the remains and read the ApocalypticLog.

** Several cases in the ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' series have everything seem lost, only for a casebreaking piece of evidence to appear at just the last moment. A particularly extreme example occurs in the first game. [[spoiler:The judge ''declares a Guilty verdict'' and starts to go through the normal game over sequence before being interrupted at the last second.]]

* In one of the ''{{Appleseed}}'' movies, Deunan gets to the console that can shut down the rampaging mechas with more than a minute of time to spare before they are in position to fire their main guns. But this doesn't do her any good when [[spoiler:it happens that the keyboard of the console has been damaged in the fight and the M key isn't working to enter the password.]]
