* Within ''The Wizardry Cursed'', the third book of Rick Cook's WizBiz series, the protagonist devises a unique defense method, a set of rings that, upon detecting mortal danger, slow the wearer's timestream to a halt, making them almost indestructible until the danger passes. The problem is, their inert bodies are taken to the BigBad's lair and the ring continues to consider them in danger...

* ''AtelierIris 2'' features this trope as a DeusExitMachina for [[spoiler:the main character Felt, forcing Viese to follow his footsteps in order to find out what happened to him (and later restore him to normal)]]. Several major characters are petrified the same way by the BigBad, all of which can eventually be restored. In fact, [[spoiler:the entire population of Eden is turned to stone near the end and an optional subquest is to run around "unstoning" every single one.]]

* The trope is named but not invoked in a ''[[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar Valdemar]]'' novel by Creator/MercedesLackey. A rather stoic character makes a pun about his personality, and the fact that people often fail to recognize his role.
