** The movies have a 19-year time skip between the prequel and classic trilogy, and the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse is even worse, sometimes skipping thousands of years at a time. The most notable time skip is to Legacy, which is in 137 ABY, or 133 years after ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''.

to:

* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 3'' takes place 19 years after ''Tekken 2''. Half the characters from the first two games are missing and have been replaced by {{exp|{{exp|y}}ies (although most of these characters have returned by the time of ''5: Dark Resurrection''). Heihachi's hair has gone from black to gray. All the Jacks (from this point onward) can fly. And the game got a considerably more modern setting as well as a rock soundtrack (rather than techno).
** ''T4'' is set two years after ''3'' (roughly placing it about two decades after ''2'') and most prominently features the return of Kazuya (who was presumed to be dead when [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat Heihachi threw his broken and battered body down an erupting volcano]] at the end of ''2''). Since then, there have been skips between the next games, but these are in much smaller increments (only a few months at a time).
* The ''VideoGame/{{Soul|Series}}'' series has done this a few times. ''Soulcalibur'' takes place three years after ''Soul Edge/Soul Blade'', where it's revealed that Siegfried has taken [[EvilWeapon Soul]] [[ArtifactOfDoom Edge]] for himself, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy becoming]] [[RedBaron the Azure Knight]], [[BigBad Nightmare]]. ''Soulcalibur II'' is set four years after Nightmare and Inferno's defeat by Xianghua and Kilik, with Siegfried ([[MyGodWhatHaveIDone having regained his lucidity after his defeat]]) becoming Nightmare ''[[TheCorruption again]]'' and attempting to restore the shattered Soul Edge. ''III'' and ''IV'' take place in quick succession after ''II'' (in all, a total of ''maybe'' a full year has passed between ''SCII'' and ''SCIV''), with Siegfried finally breaking free of Soul Edge's control, [[EnemyWithout Nightmare having been given his own body]], and Siegfried [[TheAtoner attempting to atone for his sins by destroying Soul Edge once and for all with the power of Soul Calibur]]. ''Soulcalibur V'' jumps ahead '''seventeen''' years, after Nightmare's defeat at the hands of Siegfried, with the role of [[TheHero series' lead]] being passed over to Patroklos, [[AscendedExtra Sophitia's son]].
* ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' is set one century after the original ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' series, ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' is setone century after the end of the ''X'' series, and ''MegaManZX'' is two centuries after ''Zero''. ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' was originally in its own continuity, though it was later {{retcon}}ned to be at least four millennia after ''ZX''. ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'' is set two centuries after its predecessor ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork'', itself an AlternateContinuity from the original series where Dr. Light's networking technology flourished over Dr. Wily's research in robotics.
* After [[spoiler: the Shadowlord kidnaps Yonah]] in ''VideoGame/NieR'', the game skips ahead five years.
* Frequent in the ''RedFaction'' series. ''Red Faction: Guerrilla'' is set 50 years after ''Red Faction II'', and ''Armageddon'' is set another half-century after ''Guerrilla''.
* ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty: World at War'' does this - the first American and Russian missions both take place in late 1942, then the rest of them skip ahead to September 1944 and April 1945, respectively.
* In ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' [[spoiler:3 years pass between chapters 17 and 18.]]
* The ''[[Videogame/{{X}} X-Universe]]'' series typically jumps a decade or so between games, partly to justify the introduction of new technology and ship types. ''Videogame/XRebirth'' jumps further to 20 or 30 years [[EndOfAnAge after the collapse]] of the [[PortalNetwork jumpgate network]].
* ''Franchise/TalesSeries'':
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' has a short time skip mid-game. It's implied that 6 months have passed in game after [[spoiler:defeating Van at the Radiation Gate and lowering the continents.]]
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces''' prologue arc stars several of the main characters as children, setting up both [[JustifiedTutorial the tutorial for the new combat system]] and [[PlayerPunch the events that would shape their lives later on.]] The main bulk of the game takes place seven years after the prologue. [[spoiler:The UpdatedRerelease for the [=PS3=] adds a 6-month skip after that as well.]]
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' tends to jump forward two or three or ten years between games, but between ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' they jumped two centuries.
* ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'' has 2 different time skips. One is ''12,000 years'' and the other one is ONLY ''500 years''. To the demi-gods, [[WordOfGod these time skips would feel like only a few months and a few days]] respectively, as far as Aging goes.
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Persona 4: Golden]]'' features a new epilogue [[spoiler: where the protagonist reunites with his friends one year after the events of the original story.]]
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'' takes place thirty years after the end of ''VideoGame/GoldenSun: The Lost Age''. In the meantime, the previous heroes have all married ([[ShipSinking not necessarily with each other]]), settled down, and had kids of their own... note that I didn't say [[FountainOfYouth they grew up]].
** Somewhat inverted in ''The Lost Age'', which has a short prologue overlapping with the end of the previous game.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Homeworld}}'' series of games has two timeskips: ''Homeworld: Cataclysm'' starts about fifteen years after the final battle of ''Homeworld'', and another hundred passes before the start of ''Homeworld 2''.
* The Mann vs. Machine mode in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' apparently takes place four years after the other modes.
** The (non-canon) "Death of a Salesbot" comic takes place about a year after that.
* In ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'', Conker is an alcoholic, foul-mouthed adult, rather than a mischievous child like he was in ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing'' and ''Conker's Pocket Tales''.
* The final battle of ''VideoGame/{{Einhander}}'' takes place one month later after the events of the game.
* The plot of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' spans nearly a decade, with three skips breaking it into a ThreeActStructure. In-universe, this is [[UnreliableNarrator Varric]] fast-forwarding over the unimportant stuff for his audience. It starts with Hawke's family fleeing the destruction of Ostagar during the first game. After they get to Kirkwall, we jump forward a year to Hawke meeting the party members and finding their fortune. A three-year jump takes us to the events that made them Champion, and three years after that we get to the big disaster the FramingDevice has been alluding to.
** At the Blooming Rose, two Non-Player Characters will have a conversation regarding one of them having kept the same hairstyle for 7 years. This effectively dates the events of the game as having transpired over a 7-8 year period.
* The final DLC of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' takes place two years after the ending of the main game, serving as the Inquisition's GrandFinale. The main game itself is confirmed to take place ten years after the events of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''.
* ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' is set 20 years after ''[[VideoGame/HalfLife the original]]'', during which time the protagonist Gordon Freeman has been in suspended animation. An additional 1-week timeskip happens during the game between two chapters.
* Arc 3 of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsUX'' is 3 years after Arc 2's finale which is based on ''Anime/TheWingsOfRean'' finale. Ironically, only the [[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Fafner]] characters age in Arc 3.
* In addition to ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaVictory'' taking place an unspecified amount of time after [[VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaMk2 mk2]] (at least long enough for the world to stabilize after the events of the latter game), ''Victory'' also includes timeskips between chapters in the order of years. They sort of wrote themselves into a corner with that one, since entire nations have to be established in those meantimes. [[spoiler:It also sets up TheReveal of the [[YearInsideHourOutside Year Inside, Day Outside]] nature of Ultradimension Gamindustri.]]
* ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'': During the first story, Valkyrie, Gwendolyn spends an unspecified amount of time in an enchanted sleep, and a little longer still generally out of action. Checking the timeline will show she was asleep for over two-thirds of the plot, rendering events just as disjointed and incomprehensible as one would expect. Fortunately, the other four stories more or less revolve around filling in the blanks.
* ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'' and ''Banjo-Tooie'' are separated by two years, and the latter precedes ''Nuts and Bolts'' for eight years. ''Grunty's Revenge'' takes place two months between the first two games, making it an {{Interquel}}. Fittingly, with the exception of ''Grunty's Revenge'' (which was released in 2003), the in-universe time skips match those of the games themselves:
** ''Kazooie'': 1998
** ''Tooie'': 2000
** ''Nuts and Bolts'': 2008
* The ''VideoGame/GuildWars'' series features a few time skips. At the end of the tutorial in ''Prophecies'' [[DoomedHometown the Searing]] occurs; the story then skips two years forward to the main events of the story. Three years pass between the events of the first two campaigns and the third campaign, ''Nightfall'', and another three years pass before the events of ''Eye of the North'', which neatly dovetail into the ''Guild Wars Beyond'' content. Then, 246 years pass after the final story events of the original game and the beginning of ''GuildWars2''.
* ''[[VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry Leisure Suit Larry 5]]'' takes place after the {{UnInstallment}} ''Leisure Suit Larry 4: The Missing Floppies''.
* ''Franchise/TheSims'' posits a twenty-five year time skip between each installment, which are usually released around five years apart in real time (''VideoGame/TheSims1'' in 2000, ''VideoGame/TheSims2'' in 2004, ''VideoGame/TheSims3'' in 2009 and 'VideoGame/TheSims4' in 2014). It has yet to be confirmed whether ''The Sims 4'' will continue the pattern.
* ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' takes place in 2409, thirty years after the events of ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'' and twenty-two years after the destruction of Romulus and Remus as depicted in ''Film/StarTrek''.
* ''[[{{BattleArenaToshinden}} Toshinden 4]]'', set ten years after ''Toshinden 3''.
* ''Videogame/DarkSoulsII'' takes place centuries, possibly even millennia, after ''Videogame/DarkSouls''. Many kingdoms have risen and fallen in the meantime, with the events of the first game all but forgotten by the time of the second. The names of the important figures, places, and artifacts in the first game have either lost all meaning or are entirely forgotten as well. Despite this, there are a few things that tie the two games together. [[spoiler:The souls of the great Lords still persist through reincarnation, both games have the same BiggerBad in Manus, and ultimately the plot of both games is the same: an Undead hero journeys across a ruined kingdom to prove themselves worthy of determining the fate of the First Flame and thus the world.]]
* ''VisualNovel/AnOctaveHigher'' has varying time skips of several months [[MultipleEndings for three of its five possible endings.]] [[spoiler:The true story path begins with a five year time skip after the end of the first act.]]
* VideoGame/TheWalkingDead 16 months pass between the beginning of season 2 episode 1 and the end of it! Clementine is now 11 compared to being 9 at the start of the episode.
* VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga has an approximate time skip of one year between the prologue mission to steal the Death Star plans and the Dark Trooper Project missions, which could be confined to a month at most. The next game, Jedi Knight, takes place five years after the events of the first game, while it's expansion pack ''Mysteries of the Sith'' skips another five years to 12 ABY. The skips between the next two games are a more reasonable two years a piece.

* In ''VisualNovel/StrawberryVinegar'', you will get a time skip to nine years later after the credits, with the exception of one bad ending.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' has a five year time skip between season 1 and season 2. The changes are rather great: the main character is [[BreakTheCutie definitely not who he]] [[TookALevelInBadass used to be]], he is about to meet [[OldHeroNewPals new comrades]], the setting went from the second floor[[note]] which was the setting for about 77 chapters[[/note]] to the 20th and the tone is a bit more shounen-like, at least at first.[[spoiler: Most of the important cast [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Parakewl]] are reintroduced later.]]
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' had a TimeSkip come out of the blue when [[spoiler:we follow Roy, dead and in Heaven, in his reunification with his late parents. We actually see what transpires for him, but he finds out the hard way that his perception of time was sped up in the afterlife, and that three whole months had passed, during which time things had gone to hell for his still-living friends. We then cut back to the other characters.]]
* At first, ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'' had each adventure following on the heels of the last. Lately, after every arc the comic skips forward a few months.
* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' is known for having a very sporadic case of ''Main/WebcomicTime'', where a single week's worth of strips can depict anything from a week's passage in-universe to a single one-minute long conversation. However, around comic 1311, a time-skip long enough for it to become winter and for Dora's hair to grow out, exposing her blonde roots, occurred. Judging by the length of her hair, Penelope's pining over Wil's absence, and the seasonal change, at least two or three months passed between one strip and the next.
* ''Webcomic/CogaSuro'' has an eighteen-year time skip between 'Coga Suro' and 'Coga Suro 2' [imaginatively named sequel].
* ''Webcomic/ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'' had a timeskip after [[spoiler: Merlin's death in the contemporary arc]] and the sabbatical. Although the sabbatical only lasted six months, the strip picks up again two years later, when present-day Guenevere is expecting her second child, and [[spoiler: Merlin is about to get imprisoned forever by Nimue in the base arc/leave with his new apprentice Nimue in the space arc]].
** It's since been established that previous cartoons have been pushed backwards so it's still "the present" in the contemporary arc, meaning [[spoiler: Merlin didn't become an advisor to Obama, because he was dead before the election]].
** A second sixth-month sabbatical took us forward 10 years, from [[spoiler: Mark killing Tristram and Isolde, and the death of the False Guenevere/Fasha, in all the arcs]] to [[spoiler: Contemporary Arthur announcing he was standing for the presidency]].
* ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' has a two-year time skip in the "real word" at the same time as a ten-year time skip in the roleplaying game the characters are playing, between ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' and ''Film/AttackOfTheClones''.
** And then another two "real" years, along with the three in-universe years, pass between ''Attack of the Clones'' and ''RevengeOfTheSith''. Presumably this trend will continue through the remaining three movies.
* ''Webcomic/RumorsOfWar'' features a two-month TimeSkip between the first and second [[StoryArc Story Arcs]]. In the first arc, the characters are en route to the city of Varna and encounter adventure during a layover, while in the beginning of the second arc they are implied to have not only reached their destination, but to have been there for some time. In the meantime, several characters have vanished and several new ones have appeared, owing to the comic's LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters.
* Not too long after the reset ''Webcomic/FuzzyThings'' skipped forward two years, so that the main cast are eight instead of six years old.
* ''Webcomic/TheLastDaysOfFoxhound'' skips seven months after FOXHOUND allies themselves against the Patriots, but other than that they seem to skip indeterminate amounts of time between major story arcs and even simple conversations within an arc.
* The initial storyline of ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}'' involves a spanking contest that's three weeks off, and the first year of story only covered a single day, so it was inevitable that they'd use a TrainingMontage.
* ''Webcomic/AllRosesHaveThorns'' started off during the early 16th century, it is currently now in the 19th century, with various skips forward in time inbetween.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. The story for the first five Acts [[WebcomicTime takes place over a single day]], disregarding {{Flashback}}s and characters in the far future. Act 6 takes place about three years after that day...in an AlternateUniverse. As the characters from the original universe travel to the new one (a trip which takes three years), the story of their journey is told through a series of vignettes in the Act 6 Intermissions, stopping at the beginning of the journey, 1 year into it, 2 years into it, and the end of the journey.
** During Act 4, there is a four-month TimeSkip into a BadFuture where [[spoiler:John has died fighting his Denizen [[SequenceBreaking way too early]], and Jade could not enter the Medium and died too]]. It [[TimeTravel gets]] [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong reverted]] though.
** After the alpha kids enter the medium, we see flashes of what they go through as we skip ahead 22 weeks.
* ''WebComic/EightBitTheater'' had a time skip relatively early on... Which was accidentally undone by [[AWizardDidIt "The Wizard Who Did It"]], while he was making dinner, before we really had a chance to see ''anything''.
* ''WebComic/DumbingOfAge'':
** Book 2 technically had one, which is a relief considering that it had been a year and [[WebComicTime the characters had barely finished the first few weeks of school]]. The problem? The time skip was ''four days.''
** Book 6 had another one, again lasting all of four days.
* ''Webcomic/{{Magician}}'' has an approximate 8 year time skip after part one where [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins]].
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' skipped ahead six months in one panel, which is rather impressive considering that the entire ten-year long run of the comic had only encompassed about 5 months (not including brief flashbacks), starting on January 25th. The skip runs from June 30th to December 23rd.
* ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' had several.
** The first occurred in Chapter 1, where there was a 10 year jump.
** The next happened during Chapter 2, where there was a 4 or 5 year jump.
** And now, the most significant storywise, between Chapters 32 or 33 there is a 15 year jump.
* Not an in-universe one, but a sketch page for Webcomic/{{Forever16}} has the main cast appear as [[http://jbwarner86.deviantart.com/art/The-Edge-of-Forever-348495297 21-year olds.]]
* [[Website/KiwisByBeat Ryan Armand]] used a time skip for a narrative purpose in his webcomic ''[[http://www.kiwisbybeat.com/great1.html Great!]]'' After all sorts of wacky and over-the-top situations both before and after it, the protagonist is still not satisfied with his life despite spending the whole comic [[DareToBeBadass pursuing greatness]] -- as it turns out, it is rather heavily implied that the best time of his life was when he was quietly living a normal life with his wife and kid, during a period of six years that was skipped over for his son to grow up, and that the readers don't get to see much of once the plot restarts.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has protagonist Agatha (and the audience with her) go through one in-universe when she gets unwillingly dragged through a magical teleportation-portal. Thanks to outside events, the normally instantaneous trip takes two and a half years, during which things have gone [[AfterTheEnd pretty badly]] for all the rest of Europa.
* ''Webcomic/{{Plume}}'' jumps several months between chapter 9 and 10 as characters get used to their new situations, such as Corrick now accompannying Dom and Vesper and Tegan searching for them. It also gives Hunter time to track Vesper down.
* ''Webcomic/CobwebAndStripes'' begins two years after the events of the film ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'', and contains a number of time skips within the story itself. For instance, chapter 14 takes place entirely on one day in July (Lydia's birthday); chapter 15 then jumps a few weeks into the future to late August, when she leaves to start college.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Happens twice in ''Literature/GreekNinja'' during the journey to and from Japan.
* ''TechInfantry'' is mostly organized into seasons in conscious imitation of MythArc-laden series such as Series/BabylonFive, with a few shorter stories considered "TV Movies". The first two seasons take place a hundred years after a prequel movie, then time skips 20 years for third season, several decades more for the fourth season, then the fifth through seventh seasons are set several centuries later, then eighth season jumps back to an alternate timeline 20 years after the fourth season, then there's the AbortedArc ''Tech Infantry: Exodus'' spin-off project, set several centuries after the seventh season.
* ''ChaosFighters II'' is set 100 years after ''Chaos Fighters'' and ''Chaos Fighters: Chemical Warriors''.
* The PBP board ''Roleplay/CerberusDailyNews''' went forward one in-universe year after the conclusion of Mass Effect 3
* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has a two-year timeskip following [[spoiler: the death of Behemoth]], during which Taylor [[spoiler: trains with the Chicago Wards, fights more Endbringers and Class-S threats than are covered in the story previously, and becomes a respected superhero]], with the timeskip concluding on the eve of [[spoiler:Taylor being admitted into the Protectorate and reuniting with the Undersiders.]] The skip encompasses ''eight times'' as much time as the entire million+ word story preceeding it.
* In ''Series/{{Noob}}'' this is implied by the level progression of the characters between two seasons. These gaps are [[BroadStrokes loosely]] filled by the novels and comics.
* In ''WebAnimation/WelcomeTo Website/{{Facebook}}!'', the titular guide is deactivated by its user a minute into the video, and it reawakens four months later, horrified to see what said user has done to her profile.
* The second book of ''Literature/TalesOfMU'' starts at the beginning of Mack's second year at [[WizardingSchool MU]], truncating the ending of her first semester.
* The MSFHighForum, a [[PlayByPostGames Play-by-Post RPG]], handled its Continuity Reboot (for the purpose of overhauling a hopelessly broken gameplay system) as one of these. While the exact period of time is undefined, it is estimated to be around ten years.
* Some time happens between ''WebAnimation/InanimateInsanity'' and ''Inanimate Insanity II'', which is long enough for OJ to create a hotel with the money he won.
* Volume 3 of ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'' ends with the transition from Fall to Winter, during which [[spoiler: Ruby fully recovers from her injuries and leaves for Haven with the remaining members of Team JNPR]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheOldGreyHare'': Bugs and Elmer are shown in then distant year of 2000, where they are both old.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' sequel series ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' follows the baby characters from the first series after a ten-year time skip. This was launched by an unintentional PoorlyDisguisedPilot; a tenth-anniversary special that showed what it might be like if ''Rugrats'' hadn't been FrozenInTime the length of its run. In an interview at the time of the supposedly PoorlyDisguisedPilot, the producers of Rugrats said that they weren't sure if it would become a series, because they were currently looking at other spin off series.
** The original plan was to do a show about Angelica and Suzie in preschool, which would have necessitated a timeskip as well, but a much smaller one. The ratings for the special were so good, though, that Nick decided they wanted a spinoff based on it instead. The preschool show was made too, but only four episodes were made before it was canceled.
** In any case, because of several contradictions, ''AGU'' ended up being a ContinuityReboot instead of the Timeskip that it initially appeared to be.
* ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' was an animated series that aired which turned Huey,Dewey,and Louie into teenagers.
* Disney at one point [[WhatCouldHaveBeen was going to make an animated series]] based on ''Disney/TheAristocats'' which turned Ducchess's kittens Marie,Toulouse,and Berlioz into teenagers. But the idea got cancelled in 2006, [[http://i.imgur.com/JpA90aS.jpg but concept art of the characters do exist.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': The episode "Act Your Age" takes place ten years in the future.
* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'': As with ''Naruto'', largely used to free the KidHero from always holding the IdiotBall as well as making the series DarkerAndEdgier.
** ''Ben 10'' seems to do this for each series, with ''Ultimate Alien'' taking place a few months after the finale of ''Alien Force'', and ''Omniverse'' taking place a large amount of time after ''Ultimate Alien'', with aliens living among humans generally peacefully.
* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' combined a TimeSkip with YearInsideHourOutside. During the third season, Enzo and [=AndrAIa=] found themselves [[TrappedInAnotherWorld trapped in the Game]] after losing it, moving from [[AdventureTowns system to system]]. After their initial loss, the series time-skipped to Enzo and [=AndrAIa=] as adults, with significant, but much less time having passed back on Mainframe.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' skipped about 20 years (from then present 1985 to [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2005]]) between the last episode of the second season and TheMovie, during which Cybertron fell to the Decepticons and two of the four biggest Transformers ever were built.
** There is also a timeskip in the Japanese animated continuity - there is a one year gap between the end of ''Transformers 2010'' (American season 3) and ''[[Anime/TransformersHeadmasters The Headmasters]]''.
* Nickleodeon announced their intentions to launch a teenage ''DoraTheExplorer'' series, where the main plots will often involve Dora going shopping at the mall and hanging out with the boys at school, maintaining her educational values from the original series by solving mysteries, and sport a slightly older character design.
** Interestingly, Nickelodeon did not intend to show off imagery of the new Dora until the fall toyline, releasing only a teaser silhouette of her. Some parents and children liked it, though some were worried about how much {{chickification}} Dora's about to go through. Nickelodeon properly unveiled her in attempt to settle the outcry.
* ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' does two timeskips in the second to last episode. It time skips from the Spring Season foward Six months to the fall season, then at the end of that episode it skips to Christmas.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'' has this to start off the third season. Six months have passed and in that time: [[spoiler:the Saturdays have become fugitives, with the Secret Scientists wanting to freeze Zak for eternity and the world blaming them for Argost's disappearance.]] Other things include Van Rook becoming broke and homeless, Zak's powers going haywire, and Doyle becoming a Film/JamesBond-like spy for the Saturday family.
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck''. No less than 3 years pass between the pilot and episode 17, where Gosalyn remarks Darkwing turns into a camping maniac every spring (at least 2 of them would be needed for it to be a pattern), and that it's spring again. The implication is that all this happened right after the pilot, as Darkwing transformed from a totally inept nobody to one of the most respected superheroes on the planet, called in for help by the world police on a number of occasions. And between the end of the TV series and [[ComicBook/DarkwingDuck the comic]] by [[Creator/KaboomComics Boom! Kids]], a year and a half has gone by.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had a follow-up called ''The New Batman Adventures'', which took place about 2 years later.
** Likewise, ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' takes place about a year after ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''.
*** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' takes place more than 40 years after all of the previously mentioned series.
*** 40 years after the end of ''JLU'', and according to WordOfGod, [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker the Joker kidnapped Robin]] after Darkseid and Lex disappeared.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama Action]]'' had a time skip from the finale, to the later special and the third season. It's not known exactly how long, although a year is probably the best guess (enough time for about half of Heather's hair to grow back, and most of them to try to grasp fame and fail at it).
* ''Film/AFairlyOddMovieGrowUpTimmyTurner'', the LiveActionAdaptation and SeriesFauxNale of ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' is set 13 years after the series and Retcons the ending of ''Channel Chasers''.
* The second season of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' takes place five years after the first one. This was [[WhamEpisode particularly surprising]] since there was no indication this would happen; the first episode of the second season even tries to make it look like it picks up where the last episode left off, at least in the beginning. Also, NothingIsTheSameAnymore.
** WordOfGod says that there will be another time skip if the show gets a third season, but will not say how much of one.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' takes place 70 years after ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' ended. Long enough that there are few surviving characters from the original series and the children of said characters are middle-aged adults. ''Korra'' itself has a six-month time skip between book one and book two. [[spoiler:Then a three year skip between books three and four.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'': There is a timeskip between the second season finale and the season three premiere.
* ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman'' has a six-month time skip between "Reckoning" and "Nexus". This was done to [[spoiler:allow Gotham City to heal after the black-out and mayhem created by Ra's al Ghul]] and [[spoiler:to show the harmful effects that Alfred's departure from Bruce and Tatsu has caused on the former]].
* Two years pass between the second ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'' short on ''WesternAnimation/OhYeahCartoons'' ("The Amazin' River", which would later be edited into the series episode "French Fry Falls"), which was the last one to air during the show's first season in 1998, and the third short ("Rudy's Date") which began the next season of ''Oh Yeah! Cartoons''. [[ExecutiveMeddling This was brought upon by Nickelodeon]]; when production began on the shorts for the second season, Nick was interested into giving it its' own show. However, they requested that Rudy had to be a little older (he was eight at first and ten after the time skip).
* Inverted with ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'' spinoffs ''WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop.'' ''Races'' took place during the time of its production, 1968, while the spinoffs are set decades earlier. Then again, Dick Dastardly and Muttley would reappear in their Vulture Squadron attire in 1985's ''WesternAnimation/YogisTreasureHunt''.
* The tenth episode of the third season of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' jumps about 1-2 years ahead, to give the impression of the Clone Wars dragging out endlessly and provide an opportunity for new models and wardrobes for the main characters. Anakin acquires the [[GoodScarsEvilScars scar over his right eye]] at some point in the intervening time, for example, and Ahsoka builds a second lightsaber and takes up DualWielding. The series also settles into a less AnachronicOrder after this point.
* "The Adventure Begins", the two-part premiere episode of the 2006 revival of ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'', establishes that ten years have passed since the events of the original 1993 series.

AncientEgypt.
** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': There are scenes The DistantPrologue is in Ancient Egypt, AncientEgypt 3600 BC, but the main setting is 1983.



* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 3'' takes place 19 years after ''Tekken 2''. Half the characters from the first two games are missing and have been replaced by {{exp|y}}ies (although most of these characters have returned by the time of ''5: Dark Resurrection''). Heihachi's hair has gone from black to gray. All the Jacks (from this point onward) can fly. And the game got a considerably more modern setting as well as a rock soundtrack (rather than techno).
** ''T4'' is set two years after ''3'' (roughly placing it about two decades after ''2'') and most prominently features the return of Kazuya (who was presumed to be dead when [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat Heihachi threw his broken and battered body down an erupting volcano]] at the end of ''2''). Since then, there have been skips between the next games, but these are in much smaller increments (only a few months at a time).
* The ''VideoGame/{{Soul|Series}}'' series has done this a few times. ''Soulcalibur'' takes place three years after ''Soul Edge/Soul Blade'', where it's revealed that Siegfried has taken [[EvilWeapon Soul]] [[ArtifactOfDoom Edge]] for himself, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy becoming]] [[RedBaron the Azure Knight]], [[BigBad Nightmare]]. ''Soulcalibur II'' is set four years after Nightmare and Inferno's defeat by Xianghua and Kilik, with Siegfried ([[MyGodWhatHaveIDone having regained his lucidity after his defeat]]) becoming Nightmare ''[[TheCorruption again]]'' and attempting to restore the shattered Soul Edge. ''III'' and ''IV'' take place in quick succession after ''II'' (in all, a total of ''maybe'' a full year has passed between ''SCII'' and ''SCIV''), with Siegfried finally breaking free of Soul Edge's control, [[EnemyWithout Nightmare having been given his own body]], and Siegfried [[TheAtoner attempting to atone for his sins by destroying Soul Edge once and for all with the power of Soul Calibur]]. ''Soulcalibur V'' jumps ahead '''seventeen''' years, after Nightmare's defeat at the hands of Siegfried, with the role of [[TheHero series' lead]] being passed over to Patroklos, [[AscendedExtra Sophitia's son]].
* ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' is set one century after the original ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' series, ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' is setone century after the end of the ''X'' series, and ''MegaManZX'' is two centuries after ''Zero''. ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' was originally in its own continuity, though it was later {{retcon}}ned to be at least four millennia after ''ZX''. ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'' is set two centuries after its predecessor ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork'', itself an AlternateContinuity from the original series where Dr. Light's networking technology flourished over Dr. Wily's research in robotics.
* After [[spoiler: the Shadowlord kidnaps Yonah]] in ''VideoGame/NieR'', the game skips ahead five years.
* Frequent in the ''RedFaction'' series. ''Red Faction: Guerrilla'' is set 50 years after ''Red Faction II'', and ''Armageddon'' is set another half-century after ''Guerrilla''.
* ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty: World at War'' does this - the first American and Russian missions both take place in late 1942, then the rest of them skip ahead to September 1944 and April 1945, respectively.
* In ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' [[spoiler:3 years pass between chapters 17 and 18.]]
* The ''[[Videogame/{{X}} X-Universe]]'' series typically jumps a decade or so between games, partly to justify the introduction of new technology and ship types. ''Videogame/XRebirth'' jumps further to 20 or 30 years [[EndOfAnAge after the collapse]] of the [[PortalNetwork jumpgate network]].
* ''Franchise/TalesSeries'':
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' has a short time skip mid-game. It's implied that 6 months have passed in game after [[spoiler:defeating Van at the Radiation Gate and lowering the continents.]]
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces''' prologue arc stars several of the main characters as children, setting up both [[JustifiedTutorial the tutorial for the new combat system]] and [[PlayerPunch the events that would shape their lives later on.]] The main bulk of the game takes place seven years after the prologue. [[spoiler:The UpdatedRerelease for the [=PS3=] adds a 6-month skip after that as well.]]
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' tends to jump forward two or three or ten years between games, but between ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' they jumped two centuries.
* ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'' has 2 different time skips. One is ''12,000 years'' and the other one is ONLY ''500 years''. To the demi-gods, [[WordOfGod these time skips would feel like only a few months and a few days]] respectively, as far as Aging goes.
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Persona 4: Golden]]'' features a new epilogue [[spoiler: where the protagonist reunites with his friends one year after the events of the original story.]]
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'' takes place thirty years after the end of ''VideoGame/GoldenSun: The Lost Age''. In the meantime, the previous heroes have all married ([[ShipSinking not necessarily with each other]]), settled down, and had kids of their own... note that I didn't say [[FountainOfYouth they grew up]].
** Somewhat inverted in ''The Lost Age'', which has a short prologue overlapping with the end of the previous game.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Homeworld}}'' series of games has two timeskips: ''Homeworld: Cataclysm'' starts about fifteen years after the final battle of ''Homeworld'', and another hundred passes before the start of ''Homeworld 2''.
* The Mann vs. Machine mode in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' apparently takes place four years after the other modes.
** The (non-canon) "Death of a Salesbot" comic takes place about a year after that.
* In ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'', Conker is an alcoholic, foul-mouthed adult, rather than a mischievous child like he was in ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing'' and ''Conker's Pocket Tales''.
* The final battle of ''VideoGame/{{Einhander}}'' takes place one month later after the events of the game.
* The plot of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' spans nearly a decade, with three skips breaking it into a ThreeActStructure. In-universe, this is [[UnreliableNarrator Varric]] fast-forwarding over the unimportant stuff for his audience. It starts with Hawke's family fleeing the destruction of Ostagar during the first game. After they get to Kirkwall, we jump forward a year to Hawke meeting the party members and finding their fortune. A three-year jump takes us to the events that made them Champion, and three years after that we get to the big disaster the FramingDevice has been alluding to.
** At the Blooming Rose, two Non-Player Characters will have a conversation regarding one of them having kept the same hairstyle for 7 years. This effectively dates the events of the game as having transpired over a 7-8 year period.
* The final DLC of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' takes place two years after the ending of the main game, serving as the Inquisition's GrandFinale. The main game itself is confirmed to take place ten years after the events of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''.
* ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' is set 20 years after ''[[VideoGame/HalfLife the original]]'', during which time the protagonist Gordon Freeman has been in suspended animation. An additional 1-week timeskip happens during the game between two chapters.
* Arc 3 of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsUX'' is 3 years after Arc 2's finale which is based on ''Anime/TheWingsOfRean'' finale. Ironically, only the [[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Fafner]] characters age in Arc 3.
* In addition to ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaVictory'' taking place an unspecified amount of time after [[VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaMk2 mk2]] (at least long enough for the world to stabilize after the events of the latter game), ''Victory'' also includes timeskips between chapters in the order of years. They sort of wrote themselves into a corner with that one, since entire nations have to be established in those meantimes. [[spoiler:It also sets up TheReveal of the [[YearInsideHourOutside Year Inside, Day Outside]] nature of Ultradimension Gamindustri.]]
* ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'': During the first story, Valkyrie, Gwendolyn spends an unspecified amount of time in an enchanted sleep, and a little longer still generally out of action. Checking the timeline will show she was asleep for over two-thirds of the plot, rendering events just as disjointed and incomprehensible as one would expect. Fortunately, the other four stories more or less revolve around filling in the blanks.
* ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'' and ''Banjo-Tooie'' are separated by two years, and the latter precedes ''Nuts and Bolts'' for eight years. ''Grunty's Revenge'' takes place two months between the first two games, making it an {{Interquel}}. Fittingly, with the exception of ''Grunty's Revenge'' (which was released in 2003), the in-universe time skips match those of the games themselves:
** ''Kazooie'': 1998
** ''Tooie'': 2000
** ''Nuts and Bolts'': 2008
* The ''VideoGame/GuildWars'' series features a few time skips. At the end of the tutorial in ''Prophecies'' [[DoomedHometown the Searing]] occurs; the story then skips two years forward to the main events of the story. Three years pass between the events of the first two campaigns and the third campaign, ''Nightfall'', and another three years pass before the events of ''Eye of the North'', which neatly dovetail into the ''Guild Wars Beyond'' content. Then, 246 years pass after the final story events of the original game and the beginning of ''GuildWars2''.
* ''[[VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry Leisure Suit Larry 5]]'' takes place after the {{UnInstallment}} ''Leisure Suit Larry 4: The Missing Floppies''.
* ''Franchise/TheSims'' posits a twenty-five year time skip between each installment, which are usually released around five years apart in real time (''VideoGame/TheSims1'' in 2000, ''VideoGame/TheSims2'' in 2004, ''VideoGame/TheSims3'' in 2009 and 'VideoGame/TheSims4' in 2014). It has yet to be confirmed whether ''The Sims 4'' will continue the pattern.
* ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' takes place in 2409, thirty years after the events of ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'' and twenty-two years after the destruction of Romulus and Remus as depicted in ''Film/StarTrek''.
* ''[[{{BattleArenaToshinden}} Toshinden 4]]'', set ten years after ''Toshinden 3''.
* ''Videogame/DarkSoulsII'' takes place centuries, possibly even millennia, after ''Videogame/DarkSouls''. Many kingdoms have risen and fallen in the meantime, with the events of the first game all but forgotten by the time of the second. The names of the important figures, places, and artifacts in the first game have either lost all meaning or are entirely forgotten as well. Despite this, there are a few things that tie the two games together. [[spoiler:The souls of the great Lords still persist through reincarnation, both games have the same BiggerBad in Manus, and ultimately the plot of both games is the same: an Undead hero journeys across a ruined kingdom to prove themselves worthy of determining the fate of the First Flame and thus the world.]]
* ''VisualNovel/AnOctaveHigher'' has varying time skips of several months [[MultipleEndings for three of its five possible endings.]] [[spoiler:The true story path begins with a five year time skip after the end of the first act.]]
* VideoGame/TheWalkingDead 16 months pass between the beginning of season 2 episode 1 and the end of it! Clementine is now 11 compared to being 9 at the start of the episode.
* VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga has an approximate time skip of one year between the prologue mission to steal the Death Star plans and the Dark Trooper Project missions, which could be confined to a month at most. The next game, Jedi Knight, takes place five years after the events of the first game, while it's expansion pack ''Mysteries of the Sith'' skips another five years to 12 ABY. The skips between the next two games are a more reasonable two years a piece.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Visual Novels]]
* In ''VisualNovel/StrawberryVinegar'', you will get a time skip to nine years later after the credits, with the exception of one bad ending.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' has a five year time skip between season 1 and season 2. The changes are rather great: the main character is [[BreakTheCutie definitely not who he]] [[TookALevelInBadass used to be]], he is about to meet [[OldHeroNewPals new comrades]], the setting went from the second floor[[note]] which was the setting for about 77 chapters[[/note]] to the 20th and the tone is a bit more shounen-like, at least at first.[[spoiler: Most of the important cast [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Parakewl]] are reintroduced later.]]
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' had a TimeSkip come out of the blue when [[spoiler:we follow Roy, dead and in Heaven, in his reunification with his late parents. We actually see what transpires for him, but he finds out the hard way that his perception of time was sped up in the afterlife, and that three whole months had passed, during which time things had gone to hell for his still-living friends. We then cut back to the other characters.]]
* At first, ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'' had each adventure following on the heels of the last. Lately, after every arc the comic skips forward a few months.
* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' is known for having a very sporadic case of ''Main/WebcomicTime'', where a single week's worth of strips can depict anything from a week's passage in-universe to a single one-minute long conversation. However, around comic 1311, a time-skip long enough for it to become winter and for Dora's hair to grow out, exposing her blonde roots, occurred. Judging by the length of her hair, Penelope's pining over Wil's absence, and the seasonal change, at least two or three months passed between one strip and the next.
* ''Webcomic/CogaSuro'' has an eighteen-year time skip between 'Coga Suro' and 'Coga Suro 2' [imaginatively named sequel].
* ''Webcomic/ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'' had a timeskip after [[spoiler: Merlin's death in the contemporary arc]] and the sabbatical. Although the sabbatical only lasted six months, the strip picks up again two years later, when present-day Guenevere is expecting her second child, and [[spoiler: Merlin is about to get imprisoned forever by Nimue in the base arc/leave with his new apprentice Nimue in the space arc]].
** It's since been established that previous cartoons have been pushed backwards so it's still "the present" in the contemporary arc, meaning [[spoiler: Merlin didn't become an advisor to Obama, because he was dead before the election]].
** A second sixth-month sabbatical took us forward 10 years, from [[spoiler: Mark killing Tristram and Isolde, and the death of the False Guenevere/Fasha, in all the arcs]] to [[spoiler: Contemporary Arthur announcing he was standing for the presidency]].
* ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' has a two-year time skip in the "real word" at the same time as a ten-year time skip in the roleplaying game the characters are playing, between ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' and ''Film/AttackOfTheClones''.
** And then another two "real" years, along with the three in-universe years, pass between ''Attack of the Clones'' and ''RevengeOfTheSith''. Presumably this trend will continue through the remaining three movies.
* ''Webcomic/RumorsOfWar'' features a two-month TimeSkip between the first and second [[StoryArc Story Arcs]]. In the first arc, the characters are en route to the city of Varna and encounter adventure during a layover, while in the beginning of the second arc they are implied to have not only reached their destination, but to have been there for some time. In the meantime, several characters have vanished and several new ones have appeared, owing to the comic's LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters.
* Not too long after the reset ''Webcomic/FuzzyThings'' skipped forward two years, so that the main cast are eight instead of six years old.
* ''Webcomic/TheLastDaysOfFoxhound'' skips seven months after FOXHOUND allies themselves against the Patriots, but other than that they seem to skip indeterminate amounts of time between major story arcs and even simple conversations within an arc.
* The initial storyline of ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}'' involves a spanking contest that's three weeks off, and the first year of story only covered a single day, so it was inevitable that they'd use a TrainingMontage.
* ''Webcomic/AllRosesHaveThorns'' started off during the early 16th century, it is currently now in the 19th century, with various skips forward in time inbetween.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. The story for the first five Acts [[WebcomicTime takes place over a single day]], disregarding {{Flashback}}s and characters in the far future. Act 6 takes place about three years after that day...in an AlternateUniverse. As the characters from the original universe travel to the new one (a trip which takes three years), the story of their journey is told through a series of vignettes in the Act 6 Intermissions, stopping at the beginning of the journey, 1 year into it, 2 years into it, and the end of the journey.
** During Act 4, there is a four-month TimeSkip into a BadFuture where [[spoiler:John has died fighting his Denizen [[SequenceBreaking way too early]], and Jade could not enter the Medium and died too]]. It [[TimeTravel gets]] [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong reverted]] though.
** After the alpha kids enter the medium, we see flashes of what they go through as we skip ahead 22 weeks.
* ''WebComic/EightBitTheater'' had a time skip relatively early on... Which was accidentally undone by [[AWizardDidIt "The Wizard Who Did It"]], while he was making dinner, before we really had a chance to see ''anything''.
* ''WebComic/DumbingOfAge'':
** Book 2 technically had one, which is a relief considering that it had been a year and [[WebComicTime the characters had barely finished the first few weeks of school]]. The problem? The time skip was ''four days.''
** Book 6 had another one, again lasting all of four days.
* ''Webcomic/{{Magician}}'' has an approximate 8 year time skip after part one where [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins]].
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' skipped ahead six months in one panel, which is rather impressive considering that the entire ten-year long run of the comic had only encompassed about 5 months (not including brief flashbacks), starting on January 25th. The skip runs from June 30th to December 23rd.
* ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' had several.
** The first occurred in Chapter 1, where there was a 10 year jump.
** The next happened during Chapter 2, where there was a 4 or 5 year jump.
** And now, the most significant storywise, between Chapters 32 or 33 there is a 15 year jump.
* Not an in-universe one, but a sketch page for Webcomic/{{Forever16}} has the main cast appear as [[http://jbwarner86.deviantart.com/art/The-Edge-of-Forever-348495297 21-year olds.]]
* [[Website/KiwisByBeat Ryan Armand]] used a time skip for a narrative purpose in his webcomic ''[[http://www.kiwisbybeat.com/great1.html Great!]]'' After all sorts of wacky and over-the-top situations both before and after it, the protagonist is still not satisfied with his life despite spending the whole comic [[DareToBeBadass pursuing greatness]] -- as it turns out, it is rather heavily implied that the best time of his life was when he was quietly living a normal life with his wife and kid, during a period of six years that was skipped over for his son to grow up, and that the readers don't get to see much of once the plot restarts.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has protagonist Agatha (and the audience with her) go through one in-universe when she gets unwillingly dragged through a magical teleportation-portal. Thanks to outside events, the normally instantaneous trip takes two and a half years, during which things have gone [[AfterTheEnd pretty badly]] for all the rest of Europa.
* ''Webcomic/{{Plume}}'' jumps several months between chapter 9 and 10 as characters get used to their new situations, such as Corrick now accompannying Dom and Vesper and Tegan searching for them. It also gives Hunter time to track Vesper down.
* ''Webcomic/CobwebAndStripes'' begins two years after the events of the film ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'', and contains a number of time skips within the story itself. For instance, chapter 14 takes place entirely on one day in July (Lydia's birthday); chapter 15 then jumps a few weeks into the future to late August, when she leaves to start college.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Happens twice in ''Literature/GreekNinja'' during the journey to and from Japan.
* ''TechInfantry'' is mostly organized into seasons in conscious imitation of MythArc-laden series such as Series/BabylonFive, with a few shorter stories considered "TV Movies". The first two seasons take place a hundred years after a prequel movie, then time skips 20 years for third season, several decades more for the fourth season, then the fifth through seventh seasons are set several centuries later, then eighth season jumps back to an alternate timeline 20 years after the fourth season, then there's the AbortedArc ''Tech Infantry: Exodus'' spin-off project, set several centuries after the seventh season.
* ''ChaosFighters II'' is set 100 years after ''Chaos Fighters'' and ''Chaos Fighters: Chemical Warriors''.
* The PBP board ''Roleplay/CerberusDailyNews''' went forward one in-universe year after the conclusion of Mass Effect 3
* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has a two-year timeskip following [[spoiler: the death of Behemoth]], during which Taylor [[spoiler: trains with the Chicago Wards, fights more Endbringers and Class-S threats than are covered in the story previously, and becomes a respected superhero]], with the timeskip concluding on the eve of [[spoiler:Taylor being admitted into the Protectorate and reuniting with the Undersiders.]] The skip encompasses ''eight times'' as much time as the entire million+ word story preceeding it.
* In ''Series/{{Noob}}'' this is implied by the level progression of the characters between two seasons. These gaps are [[BroadStrokes loosely]] filled by the novels and comics.
* In ''WebAnimation/WelcomeTo Website/{{Facebook}}!'', the titular guide is deactivated by its user a minute into the video, and it reawakens four months later, horrified to see what said user has done to her profile.
* The second book of ''Literature/TalesOfMU'' starts at the beginning of Mack's second year at [[WizardingSchool MU]], truncating the ending of her first semester.
* The MSFHighForum, a [[PlayByPostGames Play-by-Post RPG]], handled its Continuity Reboot (for the purpose of overhauling a hopelessly broken gameplay system) as one of these. While the exact period of time is undefined, it is estimated to be around ten years.
* Some time happens between ''WebAnimation/InanimateInsanity'' and ''Inanimate Insanity II'', which is long enough for OJ to create a hotel with the money he won.
* Volume 3 of ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'' ends with the transition from Fall to Winter, during which [[spoiler: Ruby fully recovers from her injuries and leaves for Haven with the remaining members of Team JNPR]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheOldGreyHare'': Bugs and Elmer are shown in then distant year of 2000, where they are both old.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' sequel series ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' follows the baby characters from the first series after a ten-year time skip. This was launched by an unintentional PoorlyDisguisedPilot; a tenth-anniversary special that showed what it might be like if ''Rugrats'' hadn't been FrozenInTime the length of its run. In an interview at the time of the supposedly PoorlyDisguisedPilot, the producers of Rugrats said that they weren't sure if it would become a series, because they were currently looking at other spin off series.
** The original plan was to do a show about Angelica and Suzie in preschool, which would have necessitated a timeskip as well, but a much smaller one. The ratings for the special were so good, though, that Nick decided they wanted a spinoff based on it instead. The preschool show was made too, but only four episodes were made before it was canceled.
** In any case, because of several contradictions, ''AGU'' ended up being a ContinuityReboot instead of the Timeskip that it initially appeared to be.
* ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' was an animated series that aired which turned Huey,Dewey,and Louie into teenagers.
* Disney at one point [[WhatCouldHaveBeen was going to make an animated series]] based on ''Disney/TheAristocats'' which turned Ducchess's kittens Marie,Toulouse,and Berlioz into teenagers. But the idea got cancelled in 2006, [[http://i.imgur.com/JpA90aS.jpg but concept art of the characters do exist.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': The episode "Act Your Age" takes place ten years in the future.
* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'': As with ''Naruto'', largely used to free the KidHero from always holding the IdiotBall as well as making the series DarkerAndEdgier.
** ''Ben 10'' seems to do this for each series, with ''Ultimate Alien'' taking place a few months after the finale of ''Alien Force'', and ''Omniverse'' taking place a large amount of time after ''Ultimate Alien'', with aliens living among humans generally peacefully.
* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' combined a TimeSkip with YearInsideHourOutside. During the third season, Enzo and [=AndrAIa=] found themselves [[TrappedInAnotherWorld trapped in the Game]] after losing it, moving from [[AdventureTowns system to system]]. After their initial loss, the series time-skipped to Enzo and [=AndrAIa=] as adults, with significant, but much less time having passed back on Mainframe.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' skipped about 20 years (from then present 1985 to [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2005]]) between the last episode of the second season and TheMovie, during which Cybertron fell to the Decepticons and two of the four biggest Transformers ever were built.
** There is also a timeskip in the Japanese animated continuity - there is a one year gap between the end of ''Transformers 2010'' (American season 3) and ''[[Anime/TransformersHeadmasters The Headmasters]]''.
* Nickleodeon announced their intentions to launch a teenage ''DoraTheExplorer'' series, where the main plots will often involve Dora going shopping at the mall and hanging out with the boys at school, maintaining her educational values from the original series by solving mysteries, and sport a slightly older character design.
** Interestingly, Nickelodeon did not intend to show off imagery of the new Dora until the fall toyline, releasing only a teaser silhouette of her. Some parents and children liked it, though some were worried about how much {{chickification}} Dora's about to go through. Nickelodeon properly unveiled her in attempt to settle the outcry.
* ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' does two timeskips in the second to last episode. It time skips from the Spring Season foward Six months to the fall season, then at the end of that episode it skips to Christmas.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'' has this to start off the third season. Six months have passed and in that time: [[spoiler:the Saturdays have become fugitives, with the Secret Scientists wanting to freeze Zak for eternity and the world blaming them for Argost's disappearance.]] Other things include Van Rook becoming broke and homeless, Zak's powers going haywire, and Doyle becoming a Film/JamesBond-like spy for the Saturday family.
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck''. No less than 3 years pass between the pilot and episode 17, where Gosalyn remarks Darkwing turns into a camping maniac every spring (at least 2 of them would be needed for it to be a pattern), and that it's spring again. The implication is that all this happened right after the pilot, as Darkwing transformed from a totally inept nobody to one of the most respected superheroes on the planet, called in for help by the world police on a number of occasions. And between the end of the TV series and [[ComicBook/DarkwingDuck the comic]] by [[Creator/KaboomComics Boom! Kids]], a year and a half has gone by.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had a follow-up called ''The New Batman Adventures'', which took place about 2 years later.
** Likewise, ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' takes place about a year after ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''.
*** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' takes place more than 40 years after all of the previously mentioned series.
*** 40 years after the end of ''JLU'', and according to WordOfGod, [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker the Joker kidnapped Robin]] after Darkseid and Lex disappeared.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama Action]]'' had a time skip from the finale, to the later special and the third season. It's not known exactly how long, although a year is probably the best guess (enough time for about half of Heather's hair to grow back, and most of them to try to grasp fame and fail at it).
* ''Film/AFairlyOddMovieGrowUpTimmyTurner'', the LiveActionAdaptation and SeriesFauxNale of ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' is set 13 years after the series and Retcons the ending of ''Channel Chasers''.
* The second season of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' takes place five years after the first one. This was [[WhamEpisode particularly surprising]] since there was no indication this would happen; the first episode of the second season even tries to make it look like it picks up where the last episode left off, at least in the beginning. Also, NothingIsTheSameAnymore.
** WordOfGod says that there will be another time skip if the show gets a third season, but will not say how much of one.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' takes place 70 years after ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' ended. Long enough that there are few surviving characters from the original series and the children of said characters are middle-aged adults. ''Korra'' itself has a six-month time skip between book one and book two. [[spoiler:Then a three year skip between books three and four.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'': There is a timeskip between the second season finale and the season three premiere.
* ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman'' has a six-month time skip between "Reckoning" and "Nexus". This was done to [[spoiler:allow Gotham City to heal after the black-out and mayhem created by Ra's al Ghul]] and [[spoiler:to show the harmful effects that Alfred's departure from Bruce and Tatsu has caused on the former]].
* Two years pass between the second ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'' short on ''WesternAnimation/OhYeahCartoons'' ("The Amazin' River", which would later be edited into the series episode "French Fry Falls"), which was the last one to air during the show's first season in 1998, and the third short ("Rudy's Date") which began the next season of ''Oh Yeah! Cartoons''. [[ExecutiveMeddling This was brought upon by Nickelodeon]]; when production began on the shorts for the second season, Nick was interested into giving it its' own show. However, they requested that Rudy had to be a little older (he was eight at first and ten after the time skip).
* Inverted with ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'' spinoffs ''WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop.'' ''Races'' took place during the time of its production, 1968, while the spinoffs are set decades earlier. Then again, Dick Dastardly and Muttley would reappear in their Vulture Squadron attire in 1985's ''WesternAnimation/YogisTreasureHunt''.
* The tenth episode of the third season of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' jumps about 1-2 years ahead, to give the impression of the Clone Wars dragging out endlessly and provide an opportunity for new models and wardrobes for the main characters. Anakin acquires the [[GoodScarsEvilScars scar over his right eye]] at some point in the intervening time, for example, and Ahsoka builds a second lightsaber and takes up DualWielding. The series also settles into a less AnachronicOrder after this point.
* "The Adventure Begins", the two-part premiere episode of the 2006 revival of ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'', establishes that ten years have passed since the events of the original 1993 series.

----

to:

* ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 3'' takes place 19 years after ''Tekken 2''. Half the characters from the first two games are missing and have been replaced by {{exp|y}}ies (although most of these characters have returned by the time of ''5: Dark Resurrection''). Heihachi's hair has gone from black to gray. All the Jacks (from this point onward) can fly. And the game got a considerably more modern setting as well as a rock soundtrack (rather than techno).
** ''T4'' is set two years after ''3'' (roughly placing it about two decades after ''2'') and most prominently features the return of Kazuya (who was presumed to be dead when [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat Heihachi threw his broken and battered body down an erupting volcano]] at the end of ''2''). Since then, there have been skips between the next games, but these are in much smaller increments (only a few months at a time).
* The ''VideoGame/{{Soul|Series}}'' series has done this a few times. ''Soulcalibur'' takes place three years after ''Soul Edge/Soul Blade'', where it's revealed that Siegfried has taken [[EvilWeapon Soul]] [[ArtifactOfDoom Edge]] for himself, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy becoming]] [[RedBaron the Azure Knight]], [[BigBad Nightmare]]. ''Soulcalibur II'' is set four years after Nightmare and Inferno's defeat by Xianghua and Kilik, with Siegfried ([[MyGodWhatHaveIDone having regained his lucidity after his defeat]]) becoming Nightmare ''[[TheCorruption again]]'' and attempting to restore the shattered Soul Edge. ''III'' and ''IV'' take place in quick succession after ''II'' (in all, a total of ''maybe'' a full year has passed between ''SCII'' and ''SCIV''), with Siegfried finally breaking free of Soul Edge's control, [[EnemyWithout Nightmare having been given his own body]], and Siegfried [[TheAtoner attempting to atone for his sins by destroying Soul Edge once and for all with the power of Soul Calibur]]. ''Soulcalibur V'' jumps ahead '''seventeen''' years, after Nightmare's defeat at the hands of Siegfried, with the role of [[TheHero series' lead]] being passed over to Patroklos, [[AscendedExtra Sophitia's son]].
* ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' is set one century after the original ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' series, ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' is setone century after the end of the ''X'' series, and ''MegaManZX'' is two centuries after ''Zero''. ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' was originally in its own continuity, though it was later {{retcon}}ned to be at least four millennia after ''ZX''. ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'' is set two centuries after its predecessor ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork'', itself an AlternateContinuity from the original series where Dr. Light's networking technology flourished over Dr. Wily's research in robotics.
* After [[spoiler: the Shadowlord kidnaps Yonah]] in ''VideoGame/NieR'', the game skips ahead five years.
* Frequent in the ''RedFaction'' series. ''Red Faction: Guerrilla'' is set 50 years after ''Red Faction II'', and ''Armageddon'' is set another half-century after ''Guerrilla''.
* ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty: World at War'' does this - the first American and Russian missions both take place in late 1942, then the rest of them skip ahead to September 1944 and April 1945, respectively.
* In ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' [[spoiler:3 years pass between chapters 17 and 18.]]
* The ''[[Videogame/{{X}} X-Universe]]'' series typically jumps a decade or so between games, partly to justify the introduction of new technology and ship types. ''Videogame/XRebirth'' jumps further to 20 or 30 years [[EndOfAnAge after the collapse]] of the [[PortalNetwork jumpgate network]].
* ''Franchise/TalesSeries'':
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' has a short time skip mid-game. It's implied that 6 months have passed in game after [[spoiler:defeating Van at the Radiation Gate and lowering the continents.]]
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces''' prologue arc stars several of the main characters as children, setting up both [[JustifiedTutorial the tutorial for the new combat system]] and [[PlayerPunch the events that would shape their lives later on.]] The main bulk of the game takes place seven years after the prologue. [[spoiler:The UpdatedRerelease for the [=PS3=] adds a 6-month skip after that as well.]]
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' tends to jump forward two or three or ten years between games, but between ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' they jumped two centuries.
* ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'' has 2 different time skips. One is ''12,000 years'' and the other one is ONLY ''500 years''. To the demi-gods, [[WordOfGod these time skips would feel like only a few months and a few days]] respectively, as far as Aging goes.
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Persona 4: Golden]]'' features a new epilogue [[spoiler: where the protagonist reunites with his friends one year after the events of the original story.]]
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'' takes place thirty years after the end of ''VideoGame/GoldenSun: The Lost Age''. In the meantime, the previous heroes have all married ([[ShipSinking not necessarily with each other]]), settled down, and had kids of their own... note that I didn't say [[FountainOfYouth they grew up]].
** Somewhat inverted in ''The Lost Age'', which has a short prologue overlapping with the end of the previous game.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Homeworld}}'' series of games has two timeskips: ''Homeworld: Cataclysm'' starts about fifteen years after the final battle of ''Homeworld'', and another hundred passes before the start of ''Homeworld 2''.
* The Mann vs. Machine mode in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' apparently takes place four years after the other modes.
** The (non-canon) "Death of a Salesbot" comic takes place about a year after that.
* In ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'', Conker is an alcoholic, foul-mouthed adult, rather than a mischievous child like he was in ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing'' and ''Conker's Pocket Tales''.
* The final battle of ''VideoGame/{{Einhander}}'' takes place one month later after the events of the game.
* The plot of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' spans nearly a decade, with three skips breaking it into a ThreeActStructure. In-universe, this is [[UnreliableNarrator Varric]] fast-forwarding over the unimportant stuff for his audience. It starts with Hawke's family fleeing the destruction of Ostagar during the first game. After they get to Kirkwall, we jump forward a year to Hawke meeting the party members and finding their fortune. A three-year jump takes us to the events that made them Champion, and three years after that we get to the big disaster the FramingDevice has been alluding to.
** At the Blooming Rose, two Non-Player Characters will have a conversation regarding one of them having kept the same hairstyle for 7 years. This effectively dates the events of the game as having transpired over a 7-8 year period.
* The final DLC of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' takes place two years after the ending of the main game, serving as the Inquisition's GrandFinale. The main game itself is confirmed to take place ten years after the events of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''.
* ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' is set 20 years after ''[[VideoGame/HalfLife the original]]'', during which time the protagonist Gordon Freeman has been in suspended animation. An additional 1-week timeskip happens during the game between two chapters.
* Arc 3 of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsUX'' is 3 years after Arc 2's finale which is based on ''Anime/TheWingsOfRean'' finale. Ironically, only the [[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Fafner]] characters age in Arc 3.
* In addition to ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaVictory'' taking place an unspecified amount of time after [[VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaMk2 mk2]] (at least long enough for the world to stabilize after the events of the latter game), ''Victory'' also includes timeskips between chapters in the order of years. They sort of wrote themselves into a corner with that one, since entire nations have to be established in those meantimes. [[spoiler:It also sets up TheReveal of the [[YearInsideHourOutside Year Inside, Day Outside]] nature of Ultradimension Gamindustri.]]
* ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'': During the first story, Valkyrie, Gwendolyn spends an unspecified amount of time in an enchanted sleep, and a little longer still generally out of action. Checking the timeline will show she was asleep for over two-thirds of the plot, rendering events just as disjointed and incomprehensible as one would expect. Fortunately, the other four stories more or less revolve around filling in the blanks.
* ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'' and ''Banjo-Tooie'' are separated by two years, and the latter precedes ''Nuts and Bolts'' for eight years. ''Grunty's Revenge'' takes place two months between the first two games, making it an {{Interquel}}. Fittingly, with the exception of ''Grunty's Revenge'' (which was released in 2003), the in-universe time skips match those of the games themselves:
** ''Kazooie'': 1998
** ''Tooie'': 2000
** ''Nuts and Bolts'': 2008
* The ''VideoGame/GuildWars'' series features a few time skips. At the end of the tutorial in ''Prophecies'' [[DoomedHometown the Searing]] occurs; the story then skips two years forward to the main events of the story. Three years pass between the events of the first two campaigns and the third campaign, ''Nightfall'', and another three years pass before the events of ''Eye of the North'', which neatly dovetail into the ''Guild Wars Beyond'' content. Then, 246 years pass after the final story events of the original game and the beginning of ''GuildWars2''.
* ''[[VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry Leisure Suit Larry 5]]'' takes place after the {{UnInstallment}} ''Leisure Suit Larry 4: The Missing Floppies''.
* ''Franchise/TheSims'' posits a twenty-five year time skip between each installment, which are usually released around five years apart in real time (''VideoGame/TheSims1'' in 2000, ''VideoGame/TheSims2'' in 2004, ''VideoGame/TheSims3'' in 2009 and 'VideoGame/TheSims4' in 2014). It has yet to be confirmed whether ''The Sims 4'' will continue the pattern.
* ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' takes place in 2409, thirty years after the events of ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'' and twenty-two years after the destruction of Romulus and Remus as depicted in ''Film/StarTrek''.
* ''[[{{BattleArenaToshinden}} Toshinden 4]]'', set ten years after ''Toshinden 3''.
* ''Videogame/DarkSoulsII'' takes place centuries, possibly even millennia, after ''Videogame/DarkSouls''. Many kingdoms have risen and fallen in the meantime, with the events of the first game all but forgotten by the time of the second. The names of the important figures, places, and artifacts in the first game have either lost all meaning or are entirely forgotten as well. Despite this, there are a few things that tie the two games together. [[spoiler:The souls of the great Lords still persist through reincarnation, both games have the same BiggerBad in Manus, and ultimately the plot of both games is the same: an Undead hero journeys across a ruined kingdom to prove themselves worthy of determining the fate of the First Flame and thus the world.]]
* ''VisualNovel/AnOctaveHigher'' has varying time skips of several months [[MultipleEndings for three of its five possible endings.]] [[spoiler:The true story path begins with a five year time skip after the end of the first act.]]
* VideoGame/TheWalkingDead 16 months pass between the beginning of season 2 episode 1 and the end of it! Clementine is now 11 compared to being 9 at the start of the episode.
* VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga has an approximate time skip of one year between the prologue mission to steal the Death Star plans and the Dark Trooper Project missions, which could be confined to a month at most. The next game, Jedi Knight, takes place five years after the events of the first game, while it's expansion pack ''Mysteries of the Sith'' skips another five years to 12 ABY. The skips between the next two games are a more reasonable two years a piece.

[[folder: Visual Novels]]
* In ''VisualNovel/StrawberryVinegar'', you will get a time skip to nine years later after the credits, with the exception of one bad ending.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' has a five year time skip between season 1 and season 2. The changes are rather great: the main character is [[BreakTheCutie definitely not who he]] [[TookALevelInBadass used to be]], he is about to meet [[OldHeroNewPals new comrades]], the setting went from the second floor[[note]] which was the setting for about 77 chapters[[/note]] to the 20th and the tone is a bit more shounen-like, at least at first.[[spoiler: Most of the important cast [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Parakewl]] are reintroduced later.]]
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' had a TimeSkip come out of the blue when [[spoiler:we follow Roy, dead and in Heaven, in his reunification with his late parents. We actually see what transpires for him, but he finds out the hard way that his perception of time was sped up in the afterlife, and that three whole months had passed, during which time things had gone to hell for his still-living friends. We then cut back to the other characters.]]
* At first, ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'' had each adventure following on the heels of the last. Lately, after every arc the comic skips forward a few months.
* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' is known for having a very sporadic case of ''Main/WebcomicTime'', where a single week's worth of strips can depict anything from a week's passage in-universe to a single one-minute long conversation. However, around comic 1311, a time-skip long enough for it to become winter and for Dora's hair to grow out, exposing her blonde roots, occurred. Judging by the length of her hair, Penelope's pining over Wil's absence, and the seasonal change, at least two or three months passed between one strip and the next.
* ''Webcomic/CogaSuro'' has an eighteen-year time skip between 'Coga Suro' and 'Coga Suro 2' [imaginatively named sequel].
* ''Webcomic/ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace'' had a timeskip after [[spoiler: Merlin's death in the contemporary arc]] and the sabbatical. Although the sabbatical only lasted six months, the strip picks up again two years later, when present-day Guenevere is expecting her second child, and [[spoiler: Merlin is about to get imprisoned forever by Nimue in the base arc/leave with his new apprentice Nimue in the space arc]].
** It's since been established that previous cartoons have been pushed backwards so it's still "the present" in the contemporary arc, meaning [[spoiler: Merlin didn't become an advisor to Obama, because he was dead before the election]].
** A second sixth-month sabbatical took us forward 10 years, from [[spoiler: Mark killing Tristram and Isolde, and the death of the False Guenevere/Fasha, in all the arcs]] to [[spoiler: Contemporary Arthur announcing he was standing for the presidency]].
* ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' has a two-year time skip in the "real word" at the same time as a ten-year time skip in the roleplaying game the characters are playing, between ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' and ''Film/AttackOfTheClones''.
** And then another two "real" years, along with the three in-universe years, pass between ''Attack of the Clones'' and ''RevengeOfTheSith''. Presumably this trend will continue through the remaining three movies.
* ''Webcomic/RumorsOfWar'' features a two-month TimeSkip between the first and second [[StoryArc Story Arcs]]. In the first arc, the characters are en route to the city of Varna and encounter adventure during a layover, while in the beginning of the second arc they are implied to have not only reached their destination, but to have been there for some time. In the meantime, several characters have vanished and several new ones have appeared, owing to the comic's LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters.
* Not too long after the reset ''Webcomic/FuzzyThings'' skipped forward two years, so that the main cast are eight instead of six years old.
* ''Webcomic/TheLastDaysOfFoxhound'' skips seven months after FOXHOUND allies themselves against the Patriots, but other than that they seem to skip indeterminate amounts of time between major story arcs and even simple conversations within an arc.
* The initial storyline of ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}'' involves a spanking contest that's three weeks off, and the first year of story only covered a single day, so it was inevitable that they'd use a TrainingMontage.
* ''Webcomic/AllRosesHaveThorns'' started off during the early 16th century, it is currently now in the 19th century, with various skips forward in time inbetween.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. The story for the first five Acts [[WebcomicTime takes place over a single day]], disregarding {{Flashback}}s and characters in the far future. Act 6 takes place about three years after that day...in an AlternateUniverse. As the characters from the original universe travel to the new one (a trip which takes three years), the story of their journey is told through a series of vignettes in the Act 6 Intermissions, stopping at the beginning of the journey, 1 year into it, 2 years into it, and the end of the journey.
** During Act 4, there is a four-month TimeSkip into a BadFuture where [[spoiler:John has died fighting his Denizen [[SequenceBreaking way too early]], and Jade could not enter the Medium and died too]]. It [[TimeTravel gets]] [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong reverted]] though.
** After the alpha kids enter the medium, we see flashes of what they go through as we skip ahead 22 weeks.
* ''WebComic/EightBitTheater'' had a time skip relatively early on... Which was accidentally undone by [[AWizardDidIt "The Wizard Who Did It"]], while he was making dinner, before we really had a chance to see ''anything''.
* ''WebComic/DumbingOfAge'':
** Book 2 technically had one, which is a relief considering that it had been a year and [[WebComicTime the characters had barely finished the first few weeks of school]]. The problem? The time skip was ''four days.''
** Book 6 had another one, again lasting all of four days.
* ''Webcomic/{{Magician}}'' has an approximate 8 year time skip after part one where [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins]].
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' skipped ahead six months in one panel, which is rather impressive considering that the entire ten-year long run of the comic had only encompassed about 5 months (not including brief flashbacks), starting on January 25th. The skip runs from June 30th to December 23rd.
* ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' had several.
** The first occurred in Chapter 1, where there was a 10 year jump.
** The next happened during Chapter 2, where there was a 4 or 5 year jump.
** And now, the most significant storywise, between Chapters 32 or 33 there is a 15 year jump.
* Not an in-universe one, but a sketch page for Webcomic/{{Forever16}} has the main cast appear as [[http://jbwarner86.deviantart.com/art/The-Edge-of-Forever-348495297 21-year olds.]]
* [[Website/KiwisByBeat Ryan Armand]] used a time skip for a narrative purpose in his webcomic ''[[http://www.kiwisbybeat.com/great1.html Great!]]'' After all sorts of wacky and over-the-top situations both before and after it, the protagonist is still not satisfied with his life despite spending the whole comic [[DareToBeBadass pursuing greatness]] -- as it turns out, it is rather heavily implied that the best time of his life was when he was quietly living a normal life with his wife and kid, during a period of six years that was skipped over for his son to grow up, and that the readers don't get to see much of once the plot restarts.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has protagonist Agatha (and the audience with her) go through one in-universe when she gets unwillingly dragged through a magical teleportation-portal. Thanks to outside events, the normally instantaneous trip takes two and a half years, during which things have gone [[AfterTheEnd pretty badly]] for all the rest of Europa.
* ''Webcomic/{{Plume}}'' jumps several months between chapter 9 and 10 as characters get used to their new situations, such as Corrick now accompannying Dom and Vesper and Tegan searching for them. It also gives Hunter time to track Vesper down.
* ''Webcomic/CobwebAndStripes'' begins two years after the events of the film ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'', and contains a number of time skips within the story itself. For instance, chapter 14 takes place entirely on one day in July (Lydia's birthday); chapter 15 then jumps a few weeks into the future to late August, when she leaves to start college.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Happens twice in ''Literature/GreekNinja'' during the journey to and from Japan.
* ''TechInfantry'' is mostly organized into seasons in conscious imitation of MythArc-laden series such as Series/BabylonFive, with a few shorter stories considered "TV Movies". The first two seasons take place a hundred years after a prequel movie, then time skips 20 years for third season, several decades more for the fourth season, then the fifth through seventh seasons are set several centuries later, then eighth season jumps back to an alternate timeline 20 years after the fourth season, then there's the AbortedArc ''Tech Infantry: Exodus'' spin-off project, set several centuries after the seventh season.
* ''ChaosFighters II'' is set 100 years after ''Chaos Fighters'' and ''Chaos Fighters: Chemical Warriors''.
* The PBP board ''Roleplay/CerberusDailyNews''' went forward one in-universe year after the conclusion of Mass Effect 3
* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has a two-year timeskip following [[spoiler: the death of Behemoth]], during which Taylor [[spoiler: trains with the Chicago Wards, fights more Endbringers and Class-S threats than are covered in the story previously, and becomes a respected superhero]], with the timeskip concluding on the eve of [[spoiler:Taylor being admitted into the Protectorate and reuniting with the Undersiders.]] The skip encompasses ''eight times'' as much time as the entire million+ word story preceeding it.
* In ''Series/{{Noob}}'' this is implied by the level progression of the characters between two seasons. These gaps are [[BroadStrokes loosely]] filled by the novels and comics.
* In ''WebAnimation/WelcomeTo Website/{{Facebook}}!'', the titular guide is deactivated by its user a minute into the video, and it reawakens four months later, horrified to see what said user has done to her profile.
* The second book of ''Literature/TalesOfMU'' starts at the beginning of Mack's second year at [[WizardingSchool MU]], truncating the ending of her first semester.
* The MSFHighForum, a [[PlayByPostGames Play-by-Post RPG]], handled its Continuity Reboot (for the purpose of overhauling a hopelessly broken gameplay system) as one of these. While the exact period of time is undefined, it is estimated to be around ten years.
* Some time happens between ''WebAnimation/InanimateInsanity'' and ''Inanimate Insanity II'', which is long enough for OJ to create a hotel with the money he won.
* Volume 3 of ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'' ends with the transition from Fall to Winter, during which [[spoiler: Ruby fully recovers from her injuries and leaves for Haven with the remaining members of Team JNPR]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheOldGreyHare'': Bugs and Elmer are shown in then distant year of 2000, where they are both old.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' sequel series ''WesternAnimation/AllGrownUp'' follows the baby characters from the first series after a ten-year time skip. This was launched by an unintentional PoorlyDisguisedPilot; a tenth-anniversary special that showed what it might be like if ''Rugrats'' hadn't been FrozenInTime the length of its run. In an interview at the time of the supposedly PoorlyDisguisedPilot, the producers of Rugrats said that they weren't sure if it would become a series, because they were currently looking at other spin off series.
** The original plan was to do a show about Angelica and Suzie in preschool, which would have necessitated a timeskip as well, but a much smaller one. The ratings for the special were so good, though, that Nick decided they wanted a spinoff based on it instead. The preschool show was made too, but only four episodes were made before it was canceled.
** In any case, because of several contradictions, ''AGU'' ended up being a ContinuityReboot instead of the Timeskip that it initially appeared to be.
* ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' was an animated series that aired which turned Huey,Dewey,and Louie into teenagers.
* Disney at one point [[WhatCouldHaveBeen was going to make an animated series]] based on ''Disney/TheAristocats'' which turned Ducchess's kittens Marie,Toulouse,and Berlioz into teenagers. But the idea got cancelled in 2006, [[http://i.imgur.com/JpA90aS.jpg but concept art of the characters do exist.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': The episode "Act Your Age" takes place ten years in the future.
* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'': As with ''Naruto'', largely used to free the KidHero from always holding the IdiotBall as well as making the series DarkerAndEdgier.
** ''Ben 10'' seems to do this for each series, with ''Ultimate Alien'' taking place a few months after the finale of ''Alien Force'', and ''Omniverse'' taking place a large amount of time after ''Ultimate Alien'', with aliens living among humans generally peacefully.
* ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' combined a TimeSkip with YearInsideHourOutside. During the third season, Enzo and [=AndrAIa=] found themselves [[TrappedInAnotherWorld trapped in the Game]] after losing it, moving from [[AdventureTowns system to system]]. After their initial loss, the series time-skipped to Enzo and [=AndrAIa=] as adults, with significant, but much less time having passed back on Mainframe.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' skipped about 20 years (from then present 1985 to [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2005]]) between the last episode of the second season and TheMovie, during which Cybertron fell to the Decepticons and two of the four biggest Transformers ever were built.
** There is also a timeskip in the Japanese animated continuity - there is a one year gap between the end of ''Transformers 2010'' (American season 3) and ''[[Anime/TransformersHeadmasters The Headmasters]]''.
* Nickleodeon announced their intentions to launch a teenage ''DoraTheExplorer'' series, where the main plots will often involve Dora going shopping at the mall and hanging out with the boys at school, maintaining her educational values from the original series by solving mysteries, and sport a slightly older character design.
** Interestingly, Nickelodeon did not intend to show off imagery of the new Dora until the fall toyline, releasing only a teaser silhouette of her. Some parents and children liked it, though some were worried about how much {{chickification}} Dora's about to go through. Nickelodeon properly unveiled her in attempt to settle the outcry.
* ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' does two timeskips in the second to last episode. It time skips from the Spring Season foward Six months to the fall season, then at the end of that episode it skips to Christmas.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays'' has this to start off the third season. Six months have passed and in that time: [[spoiler:the Saturdays have become fugitives, with the Secret Scientists wanting to freeze Zak for eternity and the world blaming them for Argost's disappearance.]] Other things include Van Rook becoming broke and homeless, Zak's powers going haywire, and Doyle becoming a Film/JamesBond-like spy for the Saturday family.
* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck''. No less than 3 years pass between the pilot and episode 17, where Gosalyn remarks Darkwing turns into a camping maniac every spring (at least 2 of them would be needed for it to be a pattern), and that it's spring again. The implication is that all this happened right after the pilot, as Darkwing transformed from a totally inept nobody to one of the most respected superheroes on the planet, called in for help by the world police on a number of occasions. And between the end of the TV series and [[ComicBook/DarkwingDuck the comic]] by [[Creator/KaboomComics Boom! Kids]], a year and a half has gone by.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had a follow-up called ''The New Batman Adventures'', which took place about 2 years later.
** Likewise, ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' takes place about a year after ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''.
*** ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' takes place more than 40 years after all of the previously mentioned series.
*** 40 years after the end of ''JLU'', and according to WordOfGod, [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker the Joker kidnapped Robin]] after Darkseid and Lex disappeared.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Total Drama Action]]'' had a time skip from the finale, to the later special and the third season. It's not known exactly how long, although a year is probably the best guess (enough time for about half of Heather's hair to grow back, and most of them to try to grasp fame and fail at it).
* ''Film/AFairlyOddMovieGrowUpTimmyTurner'', the LiveActionAdaptation and SeriesFauxNale of ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' is set 13 years after the series and Retcons the ending of ''Channel Chasers''.
* The second season of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' takes place five years after the first one. This was [[WhamEpisode particularly surprising]] since there was no indication this would happen; the first episode of the second season even tries to make it look like it picks up where the last episode left off, at least in the beginning. Also, NothingIsTheSameAnymore.
** WordOfGod says that there will be another time skip if the show gets a third season, but will not say how much of one.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' takes place 70 years after ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' ended. Long enough that there are few surviving characters from the original series and the children of said characters are middle-aged adults. ''Korra'' itself has a six-month time skip between book one and book two. [[spoiler:Then a three year skip between books three and four.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'': There is a timeskip between the second season finale and the season three premiere.
* ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman'' has a six-month time skip between "Reckoning" and "Nexus". This was done to [[spoiler:allow Gotham City to heal after the black-out and mayhem created by Ra's al Ghul]] and [[spoiler:to show the harmful effects that Alfred's departure from Bruce and Tatsu has caused on the former]].
* Two years pass between the second ''WesternAnimation/ChalkZone'' short on ''WesternAnimation/OhYeahCartoons'' ("The Amazin' River", which would later be edited into the series episode "French Fry Falls"), which was the last one to air during the show's first season in 1998, and the third short ("Rudy's Date") which began the next season of ''Oh Yeah! Cartoons''. [[ExecutiveMeddling This was brought upon by Nickelodeon]]; when production began on the shorts for the second season, Nick was interested into giving it its' own show. However, they requested that Rudy had to be a little older (he was eight at first and ten after the time skip).
* Inverted with ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'' spinoffs ''WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop.'' ''Races'' took place during the time of its production, 1968, while the spinoffs are set decades earlier. Then again, Dick Dastardly and Muttley would reappear in their Vulture Squadron attire in 1985's ''WesternAnimation/YogisTreasureHunt''.
* The tenth episode of the third season of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' jumps about 1-2 years ahead, to give the impression of the Clone Wars dragging out endlessly and provide an opportunity for new models and wardrobes for the main characters. Anakin acquires the [[GoodScarsEvilScars scar over his right eye]] at some point in the intervening time, for example, and Ahsoka builds a second lightsaber and takes up DualWielding. The series also settles into a less AnachronicOrder after this point.
* "The Adventure Begins", the two-part premiere episode of the 2006 revival of ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'', establishes that ten years have passed since the events of the original 1993 series.
