* In ''Literature/TheBible'', Joshua needed the Israelites to shout when the trumpets were blown on the seventh lap around Jericho. So when the moment comes, he tells them to shout...and then proceeds to keep talking for three more verses. The next verse, however, says that the people shouted as soon as they heard the trumpets.

* During the climax of ''Manga/OnePiece'''s Arabasta arc, the Straw Hats are able to call out to each other and execute an improvised plan in the course of less than a minute (three in the anime), in spite of the dialogue taking much longer. It's not like they're not aware of this, though; Luffy had taken advantage of it earlier in the arc when he attacked Crocodile mid-sentence:

*** We actually saw this averted in [=SM018=]. While [=RotomDex=] does its WikiWalk for Mallow's newly-evolved Steenee, she's beating the ever-loving shit out of Meowth.

* Averted in ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' when Blitz Stanford talks about how amazing he and (especially) his gun are. Revy takes the time to reload her empty pistols before shooting him and asking if he was trying to sell her the damn gun.

*** V is rather long-winded. In "On the Origin of [=PCs=]" s/he spends most of their hour to prepare for the "Iron Mage" competition rambling about their power and only stops at the "one minute" warning.

* Subverted in the first ''Literature/GuardiansOfTheFlame'' book, ''The Sleeping Dragon.'' Karl Cullinane attempts a BondOneLiner in the middle of a fight, only to get attacked from behind in mid-sentence. [[Lampshaded]] immediately after when he mentally tells himself "You know better than to talk while a fight's going on!"

* Opera is notorious for its use of this trope. As Ed Gardner put it, "Opera is when a guy gets stabbed in the back, and [[DyingSpeech instead of dying, he sings.]]" ''Theatre/TheMagicFlute'' is particularly funky with this, as Papageno and Pamina sing an entire aria about how they must hurry to escape Sarastro's palace, and Tamino and Papageno later sing about [[MindScrew how good they are at staying silent.]]

* The ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' of [=RPGs=] loves this; typically there will be cutscene exposition before a plot-important fight and then the characters will banter ''during'' it, apparently not even needing to breathe.
