* In the ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'' series, if a mortal stays for a day within Purgatory (where the mostly-immortal Incarnations live), a year will have passed for that individual back on Earth, unless a special dispensation is made. Normally this is not an issue, since most characters there are ghosts or the Incarnations themselves. But, in "And Eternity" one mortal uses it to her advantage, after the first time where she finds this out.

* In ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'', Picard, Kirk, and Guinan all meet inside the Nexus within hours after arriving, even though Kirk and Guinan entered (and Guinan left) decades before Picard got there. Picard and Kirk also both exit the Nexus shortly before Picard entered in "real" time.

* Creator/YuuWatase has [[WordOfGod gone on record]] as saying this is how the time difference between the real world, and world of ''The Universe of the Four Gods'' works in ''FushigiYuugi'' works. Basically the relative time difference depends on the text in the book, meaning that time doesn't move at a fixed rate - a few paragraphs could cover minutes, days, or months. So if the sentence "And a year passed." appeared, people inside will have lived a year in less than a second outside.

* Comes up in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11032690/1/ Pareidolia]]'' given that for years Literature/HarryPotter tossed objects through the Veil in an effort to understand just what it was. When he went through it, he found a cup of tea he tossed in shortly before an experiment accidentally sent him 200 years into the future; said tea was still warm. Meanwhile, in the nearly 20 years since, he's only found 10 of the 1,000 galleons he sent through and some of those were in the middle of trees several thousand years old.

* The Trope Namer is the ''ChroniclesOfNarnia'' series by C.S. Lewis. In most of the books, a number of people (usually children) travel between the "real" world and the fictional land of Narnia. Edmund is able to determine that the [[MagicAIsMagicA rule]] is: when you're in Narnia, no matter how long you stay there, no time passes in the "real" world; when you're in the "real" world, any amount of time could be passing in Narnia.
** TheProfessor actually believes Lucy is telling the truth about her first visit to Narnia because her story makes use of this trope (which he has some personal experience with in the {{prequel}}) without her realizing it. He says that if Lucy were really lying about Narnia, she would have hidden for a long time before trying to sell the story, rather than claiming to have been gone for hours when only a few seconds had passed.

* In ''Webcomic/TheDreamlandChronicles'', the DreamLand operates on Narnia Time. When Alex falls asleep he goes to Dreamland, and when he wakes up some time passes in dreamland before he falls asleep again. However the amount of time that passes in that time is explicitly declared as random. Sometimes nearly no time passes [[spoiler: like when he is falling with Felicity on his back]], whereas sometimes several hours passes. The general amount of time that passes must average out though, because at the beginning of the story when Alex hasn't been to Dreamland in years, a similar number of years have passed for the inhabitants.

* The Neitherworld, where WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}} spends his days, appears to run on a very different timetable than the Outerworld. Lydia is often with Beetlejuice for hours or even ''days'', and yet she's never shown to miss any school or have her absence noticed by anyone.

* In ''Fanfic/TheElementsOfHarmonyAndTheSaviorOfWorlds'', this happened to Earth and Equestria after the Rainbow Bridge collapsed -- for Megan's family, it's been about two decades since the end of the original cartoon, while for Celestia, Luna, and any G1 characters still alive, it's been about 15 centuries. Once the Bridge is reestablished, however, time synchs up again.
