* Played straight near the end of ''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker: Devil's Advocate'': [[spoiler:the executioner is about to throw the switch to electrocute the Joker when a phone call rings out just in time for one of those attending the execution to get a call from the governor, who indicates that the real culprit for the poisoned stamps has been found and that the Joker is now in the clear and granted a death row pardon. Another few seconds, and he would have been toast before he ever got exonerated of the incident.]]

* MatthewReilly uses this often, but one that just ''begs'' to be mentioned comes from ''Scarecrow'': a nuclear missile is prevented from being launched with ''less than a second left''. And a different nuclear missile is shut down in mid-flight.

* 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.
