* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "The Girl in the Fireplace", the time portals between the future and 18th century France seem to work like this. Which the Doctor keeps inexplicably forgetting.

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'' has had inconsistencies in how time works when traveling between universes. When traveling to Earth-2, they are able to a timer for how long they have to get back, but when traveling to Earth-38 (Supergirl's Earth) Barry's gone for a full day while seemingly no time has passed on his Earth. Later, when he and Cisco visit Earth-38 it "takes a few tries" to get into her Earth. Those tries happen back to back for Barry and Cisco, but days apart on Supergirl's Earth.

Added DiffLines:

* Although there is no time or interdimensional travel in ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'', Narnia Time is repeatedly played for laughs as part of a recurring gag. It goes like this : Bojack becomes depressed and goes on an alcoholic or drug fuelled bender, then he'll start a conversation or say he's about to perform a simple task which would only take a short time to perform, and the background will change to show the task or conversation has been completed. And then his companion will look at him strangely, explain that a much longer period of time has passed, and either briefly summarize his drug-fuelled antics or tell him that he's been missing for weeks or months.

[[folder: Folklore]]

* In western folklore, fairy rings are often understood to operate like this. Step in one, and you could experience days, weeks, or months in the fairies' world while only having been gone from your own world for a short moment. Or, you could end up passing what seems like a few short hours with the fairies but return to your home and discover decades or centuries actually passed. Fairy magic is notoriously fickle.

* The Bajoran wormhole in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' runs on Narnia Time. Usually characters have exited the wormhole to find that the same amount of time passed both inside and outside. The aliens who live in the wormhole are explicitly stated to not even understand what time is, however. As a result, they have caused a Bajoran poet to skip a hundred years of "real" time in the matter of subjective seconds. Additionally, one of the aliens left this realm to [[spoiler: directly cause the conception of the main protagonist, decades before they met him]].

* 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; but when you're in the "real" world, any amount of time could be passing in Narnia.

* 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.
