* On ''TopGear'' these are generally used to compress films involving long road trips or extensive car maintenance. Sometimes spoofed, when a series of clips is shown suggesting that we are seeing the presenters work for hours, and then a visual clue or a bit of dialogue reveals that only a few minutes have passed.

[[IThoughtItMeant Has nothing to do with]] [[TimeCrash the literal distortion of time]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII plotted by Sorceress Ultimecia.]] If so, the trope would have been called "Time [[XtremeKoolLetterz Kompression]] Montage" anyways.

* In ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'', when Sakaki first pets Mr. Tadakachi, she does so for forty-five seconds real-time. As she does, however, we can see the background steadily go from afternoon to dusk, until finally Chiyo asks if they can go to her house (where the rest of their friends are waiting).

* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' played this for laughs with the superhero Montage. He has the power to create these by touching his fists together twice and saying "boop boop". Among the things he uses this power for is to build a shed, teach a guy Spanish, travel several miles, and age a guy to near-senility in a matter of a few seconds. Then his arch-nemesis End-Credits Mon comes in and ends the program.

** Taken to the extreme in "Heaven Sent", in which a period of [[spoiler: four and a half ''billion'' years]] is compressed into a montage of brief clips and the Doctor's running "bird" story.

* Spoofed in the film ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice'', with a song entitled "We Need A Montage", which explains away the technique as it plays over a montage. "And with every shot show a little improvement; to show it raw would take too long! It's gonna take a ''montage''!"
** The same song originally appeared in a ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode
** Various montages are also spoofed by [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad]] in one of his [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail117.html emails]].
