* ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' plays with this. At the end of the first game, Zero ends up cut off from the Resistance with multiple Pantheons closing in, to which he starts cutting them down before the credits roll. Then cut to the start of ''Zero 2'', it turns out he really has been continually fighting off Pantheons on his own for an entire ''year''.

* PlayedForLaughs in the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' episode featuring ''Film/CryWilderness'' as Jonah and the Bots leave the theater and the host segment has Kinga and Max meeting Pearl, Bobo and Brain Guy. When that portion ends and goes back to Jonah, they wonder how long they were in the hallway before they have to go back in.

*** Very well averted in ''Anime/AdventChildren'' for the most part, which showed the party members all having moved forward two years with attendant changes in lifestyle, appearance, family situation and personality. A lot of fans felt somewhat cheated by the fact that, for instance, Cloud apparently adopted a young boy at some point between the original game and the sequel, or that Cid and Shera were now married and had a new ship.

* The myth of the [[FlyingDutchman Wandering Jew]]. While preaching, Jesus told His audience that some of them would live to see the Kingdom of God, which was a Jewish concept about the restoration of Israel and the renewal of the covenant that Jesus redefined. Later, people started interpreting the saying as referring to Jesus' second coming and, since (most people agree) the second coming hasn't happened yet, someone from that audience was supposed to still be alive and wandering the earth.

The Wandering Jew is a specific example of this from the bible: according to the story, one man who taunted Jesus during the crucifixion was cursed to walk the Earth until the second coming. Since that hasn't happened yet, presumbably he must still be out there.

* A bug in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' had this in the most literal sense. The banners in the attacker's spawn on Volskaya Industries could be destroyed, much like everything else in the room. However, shooting the banner, quickly turning around, and then turning back to the banner (even after upwards of 5-10 seconds) caused the banner to continue falling from wherever it was when you turned away from it.

** A more direct example from ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'': you can overhear several conversations between [[{{NPC}} NPCs]] in the Citadel. Most of them are broken up into parts, with each progressive part only triggering after you've left and returned to the area. Most of them don't make much sense if you try to imagine them broken up over the course of several weeks.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. Both games take place over a year. As the year goes by, talking to NPCs reveals that their dialogue changes every few days - their lives are going on in the background, unobserved by you.
