* Giorno Giovanna's Stand, Gold Experience, can inflict something akin to this in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureVentoAureo''. By infusing a still living persons body with its life-giving power it can throw their perception of reality out of sync with how their body is reacting to it. He can use this to literally make their brain think further ahead than their body can react or make the effect of a one-second punch to the face feel like it's stretched out to five minutes of bone-crunching agony.

* The History Monks in ''Literature/Discworld'' have worked out how to weaponise this. By performing a complex ritual, they're able to displace a training dummy's head by a split-second, resulting in it being blown off.

* Has been used in the ''Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse'' novels -- in the [[Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures New Adventure]] ''The Also People'', for example, the Doctor does it to hide the TARDIS from the [[Literature/TheCulture advanced race]] whose DysonSphere he's visiting, so they aren't tempted to reverse-engineer it.

* This happens to Sonic in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom''. He puts on a device that Tails developed in order to push him to new heights of speed but ends up going so fast that he pushes himself slightly into the future and becomes invisible to everyone else. Tails fixes the problem by joining him at the point of desync and then recalibrating his hardware to bring him back.

* In ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'', Knothole was shifted three hours into the future when the Ultimate Annihilator hit it. It was ''supposed'' to outright destroy it, but Snively modified the weapon to only kill Robotnik. When Robo-Robotnik showed up and decided to forcefully restore Knothole to its proper time (and, thus, destroy it), Sonic strapped himself to a Super Chaos Emerald and used his speed and the emerald's power to stop Robotnik's weapon, with the side effect of turning him into his ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' variation.
* Kang the Conqueror, a recurring foe of ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'', uses this variation of a PocketDimension as a ''gun rack.'' As a BigBad from a 30th-century earth that is entirely under his dominion, he's got some pretty startling weapons to stash there.
* In ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'', the only way Flash and Green Lantern were able to get away from the black rings was to time-travel two seconds into the future.

* This is used in combination with SanDimasTime in ''VideoGame/CrimsonEchoes'' to explain how the gates work, and why they only exist at one point in time. Specifically, the Entity created the gates for the party to travel through time and save the world, but since the party runs on SanDimasTime, the gates also have to move forward through time at the same rate. [[spoiler: This ends up causing problems with time travel when the party ends up out of sync in the Reptite timeline, as no matter what they do, the gates will be off-sync with them, and thus unable to be used.]]

** The ATMOS devices in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E4TheSontaranStratagem "The Sontaran Stratagem"]] work as advertised on the surface, but their true purpose is to spew a noxious gas the Sontarans can use to turn Earth into a clone farm. This facet of its design is disguised by hiding the dangerous part one second out of time.
** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E12TheStolenEarth "The Stolen Earth"]], the Daleks use this to create a pocket universe for their [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt multiverse-destroying]] machine. (The 27 planets mentioned above.)

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': The aliens in the episode "Time's Arrow" live scant fractions of a second out of phase with the rest of reality.
** In "The Next Phase", Geordi and Ro think they're dead, when they're actually a little out of sync with the rest of the universe.



* ''Series/TheOuterLimits1963'' episode [[Recap/TheOuterLimits1963S2E16ThePremonition "The Premonition"]]. A test pilot and his wife are trapped 10 seconds into the future. They slowly move back toward regular time at a rate of 1 second per 30 minutes of subjective time. Their problem: they discover that their daughter will be run over by a truck once they return to normal time, and must find a way to stop it.

* In the first episode of the ''WesternAnimation/AeonFlux'' TV series, Trevor uses a special harness that puts him out of phase with the world around him. He uses it to enter a special love nest he built for himself and Aeon, [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext which is hidden inside the body of a kidnapped politician for some reason]].
* Clock King did this in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' when he got his hands on time manipulating technology, placing one on the Batmobile then setting it moments out of sync with time so the on-board trap sensors wouldn't find it.
