** Even without flashy animations, the original NES version of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasy'' definitely qualifies, with group-affecting spells slowly affecting one character/enemy at a time, which can cause fights to take forever.

* Pretty irritating in the MMORPG ''{{Wizard101}}'', aside from the few spells that you actually ''enjoy'' watching endlessly. Each round of battle has up to four players and four baddies, and each of these can cast a spell which requires several seconds of animation.

*** This is actually the trick to easily defeat Ozma, the bonus boss. His constant barrage of attacks is because he has a special battle script that gives him a free turn every time a PC inputs a command while he's neutral. Neutral meaning not in the middle of an attack animation. While he's casting Doomsday which has a several second long animation, that's your chance to get a full round in without him being able to get 4 free actions.

* ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'' -- [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]] vs. [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Vergil]]: Sephiroth casts his signature Supernova, but actually averts this trope in a clever way by [[spoiler:casting it earlier on, using his MasterOfIllusion powers to mask said long animation from Vergil, and only breaking the illusion to reveal the attack when it's too late for Vergil to escape unscathed from it]].

As such, viewers only see 10 seconds from the end part of the animation.

* The ''[[Franchise/TalesSeries Tales]]'' series. Can you say Hi-Ougi / Mystic Arte? Around ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny2'', when the concept became cemented, these killer moves went from being merely a very strong attack ([[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Meikuu Zanshouken]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfEternia Aurora Sword]]) to involving time freezing, [[SuperMovePortraitAttack character portraits]], light shows, and excessively large areas and long combos.

* ''SuikodenII'' had Chaco, who's attack animation was about three times as long as everyone elses. Using him could waste hours in the long run.
** Along with Sid, who used the same animation. However, given the way battle works in ''SuikodenII'', it's entirely possible for their attacks to take just long enough for the round to end...as long as everyone ''else'' is also just attacking.

*** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV Heavensward'', Knights of the Round is used ''against'' you by King Thordan, and it's an equally lengthy sequence of him summoning knights to attack you - though this time, you can dodge some of the attacks and fight back.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'': While spell animations aren't nearly as over-the-top as other games, more powerful spells still have flashier effects; in particular, [[ColonyDrop Meteor]] and all Summons (Zodiack/Zodiark being the most powerful and therefore taking the longest) can cause massive slowdown due to the number of particle effects on screen.
