* In ''VideoGame/LEGORockRaiders'', once the Raiders have paid the necessary price of energy crystals and ore, already-completed buildings are teleported down from the orbiting LMS Explorer rather than being constructed on-site. Other construction efforts such as assembling Power Paths or repairing erosion still take two seconds at most, though. Additionally, training is still incredibly quick, for instance taking just three seconds to be trained as an explosives expert!

* In ''VideoGame/DarkCloud'' and ''VideoGame/DarkChronicle'', items and structures in the Georamas can be built and constructed instantly. The former game achieves this through a PowerCrystal called an Altamillia, while the latter game has a special machine called "Carpenterion".

* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes''
** On "Bugs Bunny Rides Again", WesternAnimation/YosemiteSam tells Bugs that [[NotBigEnoughForTheTwoOfUs "This town ain't big enough for the two of us!"]] Bugs runs out, you hear sawing and hammering, and then he comes back and asks "''Now'' is it big enough?" In the two seconds he's out, Bugs has built about a dozen skyscrapers around the town.
** In "Rhapsody in Rivets", a skyscraper is built in the time it takes to play Liszt's ''Hungarian Rhapsody". By the end of the cartoon, the pace seems to be about five floors a second.

** The ''Chasing Shadows'' installment finally disproves the GameplayAndStorySegregation hypothesis by introducing another being which "can move in frozen time" and thus making it clear that yes, you really are building instantly from the perspective of monsters.

** The sequel mixes it up a bit: the ED main building is lowered from orbit then it builds the rest around itself; the UCS still plays it straight. The protagonists even use UCS forces in the third campaign especially because they can [[JustifiedTrope drop a few construction units disguised as asteroids onto the planet then build their forces on-site and take their objective without getting blown out of the sky by orbital defenses]]. And since the UCS forces are purely robotic... ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander'' comes to mind.

* ''VideoGame/{{Outpost 2}}'' has structures built in a factory as a kit, which then has to be loaded onto a ConVec (Construction Vehicle), which in turn has to build it in a suitable area, usually one linked up to a tube (underground tunnel connecting the buildings.)

** ''Star Ruler 2'' adds conventional build times, though they are absurdly short - a MileLongShip can be built in under two minutes.

* In ''[[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins Origins]]'', a ''MassEffect''[=/=]''StarWars''[=/=]''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}''[[spoiler:[=/=]''[=Halo=]'']] MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, the "digistruction" technology seen on Pandora allows ships and vehicles to be created in very short periods of time. This gives some carriers of the technology a mechanical HealingFactor.

This gives some carriers of the technology a mechanical HealingFactor. It's also the only way to take on [[spoiler:the Flood at Intergalactic Stage]] since nothing else seems to be able to produce military units quickly enough. [[spoiler:RISE]] knows this and was already building massive facilities to digistruct ''entire Star Dreadnaughts'' in a matter of '''weeks'''.

* ''VideoGame/SwordOfTheStars'' is one of the few aversions. Like Civilization each turn is a year, but the distances involved are great enough that even travel at multiple times the speed of light could take years.

* In an early issue of ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk'' Bruce Banner, a theoretical physicist, and Rick Jones, a no-particular-education teen, build an entire Hulk-holding bunker in just a few hours. An issue or two later Jones builds another one all by himself.
* This is essentially ComicBook/DamageControl's job - quick turnaround construction after supers' fights.
