* ''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.]]

* Parodied in the new series of DangerMouse. Racing to stop a SelfDestructMechanism, DM triumphantly declares "Just in the nick of time!"...and realises there's still five seconds on the clock. So he waits four seconds, triumphantly declares "Just in the nick of time!", and hits the button with a second left on the clock.

* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Julio Scoundrel's airship Mechane always arrives just in time (with it [[TravelingAtTheSpeedOfPlot getting faster if the plot needs it to]]), as demonstrated each time he shows up in the comic and spelled out explicitly when he loans out his airship to the heroes.
-->'''Julio Scoundrel:''' I've been doing this more than 30 years and I've never arrived anywhere earlier than the nick of time.
