** This holds true in hunting as well, especially deer hunting. Hunters learn to shoot slightly down and ahead of where the deer actually is, because when the deer hears the gun shot, they immediately jump because they are startled. Therefore, their body goes slightly down and forward because they try to run. Aiming this way, you are more likely to get a good shot in the right place.

** It's noted that the explanation is nonsensical, but that since Ghnomb is a god and believes it should work, his belief makes it work.

* The 1980s ''Series/TwilightZone'' revival episode "A Matter of Minutes," based on the 1941 short story "Yesterday Was Monday" by Creator/TheodoreSturgeon. A young married couple woke to find numerous faceless workers in blue coveralls disassembling their home around them. It turns out that they are the beings responsible for breaking down the minute that has just passed in order to re-use the raw materials to build the minute yet to come. (They actually work with a few hours worth of buffer as a safety factor.) On occasion the time workers muff their stage directions, which is why your car keys will be missing one minute, and back where you left them the next. It's explained that the viewpoint couple have dropped out of synch with their own timeframe, necessitating their disappearance from reality. (It's implied that this has happened to individuals such as Amelia Earhart, Judge Crater and Jimmy Hoffa.)
* ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'' also had a similar one called "Gabe's Story". A man takes a blow to his head and begins seeing a fellow in blue overalls who keeps doing stuff to mess up his life. He's eventually told the little fellow was supposed to make sure [[spoiler: his wife left him, his assistance to a theft was discovered and he went to prison.]]

* ''TabletopGame/{{Timemaster}}'': Time Corps chronoscooters have "vanish" mode, which sends the 'scooter backwards in time at a rate equal to the current forward rate. In-game, this equates to the 'scooter hovering at the edge of existing until it is called back by the agent.

* In the [[TheRiftwarCycle Riftwar]] book ''Krondor: The Betrayal'', which is also the novelization for the computer game ''VideoGame/BetrayalAtKrondor'', the [[spoiler:Lifestone under Sethanon]] had been time-shifted in this manner, and the entire invasion plot by the BigBad [[spoiler:Makala]] was to provide a distraction so that he could bring the [[spoiler:Lifestone]] back into normal time to study and/or steal it. This only happens in the novelization; in the game, the timeshifting protection doesn't exist.

* This happens in the Stephen King story "Literature/TheLangoliers" (and the miniseries adapted from it). A plane-load of people get stuck an unspecified but short time behind the normal timeframe, and have to escape before they are eaten by the [[ClockRoaches titular creatures]]. In the meantime, their separation from the present means that the rest of the world is entirely empty, the day/night cycle is fading into perpetual twilight, sounds and echoes are deadened, food is tasteless, carbonated drinks are flat, and matches won't light. To top it all off, a horrible chewing noise in the distance grows ever louder as the Langoliers approach.

It ends with them being a moment in the ''future'', but it's more tenable since they shift back to the present.
