* The ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' fanfic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/8498536 Causality]]'' has Marinette being sent twenty years back in time by an akuma called Rewind, while her earrings are left behind. She's forced to survive by going to an orphanage under the false name Nathalie, before being adopted by the Sancouer family. Since she knows that in her present Nathalie Sancouer will be Gabriel Agreste's assistant and Adrien's caretaker, she spends the next twenty years planning to live that life - including stealing the birthday present Marinette gave Adrien - in hopes of stopping herself being sent back, [[StableTimeLoop only to realise she caused it to begin with]]. [[spoiler:After she explains all this to Adrien, she puts the earrings back on and goes on to defeat Rewind, only to lose Adrien in the same way - until he turns up a few weeks later, twenty years older, under the name Felix Astruc.]]

** [[Recap/DoctorWho2013CSTheTimeOfTheDoctor "The Time of the Doctor"]] has the Eleventh Doctor spending 900-plus years on Trenzalore, whereas for Clara the episode takes place over the span of two hours. The first few centuries he at least had the excuse of not having the TARDIS, but the rest of the time he apparently didn't even touch it. In a twist on the [[MayflyDecemberRomance Mayfly/December]] relationship, the mortal (Clara) sees the near immortal (the Doctor) die of old age by the end of it. Don't worry, [[TheNthDoctor he regenerates.]]
** ''All'' other examples ''pale'' in comparison to what the Doctor goes through as he attempts to escape his confession dial in the episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E11HeavenSent "Heaven Sent"]], in which he spends ''four and a half billion'' years reliving the same few days over and over[[spoiler:[[note]]Albeit as fresh copy each time[[/note]]]], gradually punching his way through an impenetrable diamond-like wall, all the time grieving the death of his beloved companion.
** And ''that'' was outdone in the ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E12HellBent very next episode]]'' when it's revealed that Ashildr [[TimeAbyss survived]] until ''the end of the universe'' apparently without travelling in time.

** As Series 10 begins, starting sometime in the 20th century the Doctor has spent decades at St. Luke's University as a professor, all to hold to a vow to protect the mysterious Vault (and its prisoner) beneath it. While he occasionally makes quick trips elsewhere in the TARDIS, especially after he meets Bill Potts and makes her his companion in ThePresentDay, he is plagued by wanderlust and loneliness.

* The ''TrintonChronicles'' has Dan, who froze himself in time after a big battle, waiting until someone rescued him from the temporal hibernation. It took roughly 80+ years before it happened too.

* A late-coming plot twist in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'' ([[spoiler:Zelda has to be encapsulated in a crystal for some thousand years to prevent Demise from reviving]]) would have had a lot more emotional impact if a) [[spoiler:she hadn't been "sleeping" the whole time]] or b) Link couldn't just step through the Gate of Time to the present.
** Played straight with [[spoiler:Impa]] though.

* A semi-recurring element of ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'':
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Link has to spend seven years sleeping in the Sacred Realm so that he will be old enough to properly wield the Master Sword. He returns to the BadFuture Hyrule after only a moment from his perspective, yet every other character lived as normal through that period.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' begins with Link waking up in the Shrine of Resurrection after a century. Upon reemerging in Hyrule, he finds that the few LongLived characters he knew before are still around. The three [[{{Ninja}} Sheikah]] individuals who helped him and Zelda research the ancient technology are still there to help him fight Ganon. The [[NatureSpirit Koroks]] are once again happy to see "Mr. Hero." And the older [[FishPeople Zora]] either resent his failure to defeat Ganon the first time around or are delighted to see him alive and well once again.

* The episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' that introduced the Smurflings started with Nat, Snappy, and Slouchy as adult Smurfs until they chased Nat's butterflies into Father Time's special grandfather clock, which de-aged them about 50 years. Father Time had no idea how to reverse the process (he couldn't cause time to go forward in the same way he was able to make it go backward), so the three would just have to grow up the usual way.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003''; once the Utrons realized they has crash-landed on a planet where the technology was too primitive to repair their ship and build another, they realized this was their only solution; they had to wait. They realized humanity would evolve and advance in science and technology to a point where they could use it with theirs. Being a ''very'' long-lived species, this eventually paid off, and after ''centuries'' of waiting, they succeeded. (With the heroes' help, that is.)
