* Manga/WorldTrigger had fun with this trope. When [[ChildSoldier Miwa and Yoneya]] fought against an enemy, they started to talk to the enemy when the fight was stuck in a stalemate. The enemy lampshaded that talking to enemy mid-fight was foolish. Cue both sides incapacitating each other mid-talk. Turns out that both sides used the talk just to earn a few seconds to set up sneak attacks.

** Although [[spoiler:Dio's time-freezing ability]] explicitly only lasts nine seconds, it can easily turn into nearly a minute of gloating. The 2015 'adaptation of ''Stardust Crusaders'' does the same, even when [[spoiler:the limit is reduced to five seconds]].

** As Jonathan and Dio are falling down the chimney shaft, the two of them exchange insults and boasts for a good five minutes in the anime, even though exterior shots of the mansion show the chimney can't possibly be taller than 40 meters or so.

* Parodied in ''[[WebAnimation/StarWreck Star Wrek: In the Pirkining]]''. The film's parody version of John Sheridan spends so long making a dramatic speech to his enemies that they plan their attack and open fire before he finishes, and he goes on for another minute before he notices this.
