* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'': You have three days to save the world! At least you have the ability to go back in time, but at expense of some of your achievements. It also has a race against the clock ''beginning'', where you have to get to the [[MagicMusic Ocarina of Time]] (atop a clock tower no less) in order to [[ResetButton reset time]] before the moon falls. Afterwards you can reset time as much as you want. Each in-game hour is 45 seconds, though with the Ocarina you can also slow down time to 1/3 speed in the N64 version, and [[{{Nerf}} 1/2 of its speed in the 3DS version]].

* In ''Film/TheWave2015'', once the geologists on guard sound the alarm in Geiranger, everyone in town has 10 minutes to get the hell outta dodge before a 300ft GiantWallOfWateryDoom splashes down on them. Kristian and Idun set their clocks accordingly. Also, this scenario [[RippedFromTheHeadlines will eventually happen]].

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', the episode "24 Hours to Live", that's how much time Arnold is given before the ultimate fight with the class bully Harold. While the countdown isn't shown, Helga constantly shows up throughout the episode, yelling "Only <time remaining> until you die!" at Arnold.



* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' had to solve a series of riddles set by [[HeWhoMustNotBeNamed "Him"]] within the time limit set for each riddle. They had to suxceed or, otherwise, the Professor would have to pay... [[spoiler:[[ExactWords for the pancakes]] he ate at "Him"'s restaurant "Otto Time" (which is a pun on Out of Time, which also counts as an UnfortunateName). It was all a bet between "Him" and the Professor]].

* The central gimmick of the old novel series ''Race Against Time'', although the actual reason for the title is a bit lame: a kid and his retired super spy-ish uncle are [[OneLastJob called to help some old friend of the uncle's]] who's gotten in trouble, and they have to solve the mystery/defeat the villain and then get home again before the kid's parents get home from a business trip and find out what they've been up to.

* In the ''WebComic/GirlGenius'' side-story "Ivo Sharktooth, Private Jager", the winners' trophy for a prestigious race is found to be missing just after the racers set off, and bad things will happen if it's not found in time to be presented at the end of the race. Fortunately, it's the annual Mechanicsburg Harvest Festival Snail Race, and the snails take four days to complete the course.
