* A rare non-magical examples occurs in KimStanleyRobinson's ''RedMarsTrilogy'': on Mars, the day is 40 minutes longer than on Earth, and they deal with it by freezing the clock each night at midnight. The 40 minutes becomes a sort of free time, a time that is considered not to really count.

* Zig-zagged by Daylight Saving Time, or Summer Time. Transition to DST implies moving clocks one hour forward (usually in the Saturday-Sunday night at 0200 AM) and return to winter time implies moving them back one hour. It is basically having one hidden hour in the Spring and sensing one hidden hour in Autumn.

In spite of the name, TheHiddenHour is not necesarily 60 minutes long; it frequently lasts [[TravelingAtTheSpeedOfPlot as long as the plot requires]], which to those involved may feel like several hours, or possibly even ''days'', before the Hidden Hour ends and normal time resumes.

** However, this extra hour occours only in the [[DarkWorld Mad City]]; no-one in the real world, supernatural or not, experiences it.
