* Literature/TheSpaceOdysseySeries by [[ArthurCClarke Arthur C. Clarke]] has books titled "2001", "2010", "2061", and "3001". No points for guessing the length of the time skips. It's notable that a HumanPopsicle from the first book plays a large role in the last one.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' and ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' had a number of time skips during its run. This happened after every major story arc. The original manga ran for eleven years, with about three times that amount passing in-story. This amounted to no less than seven time-skips lasting a year or more. The most notable was the five year gap between the end of the 23rd Tenkaichi Budoukai and the arrival of Raditz (which marked the end of the first ''Dragon Ball'' anime series and the beginning of the more sci-fi oriented ''Dragon Ball Z''), and the seven year skip back into a more comedic (but still dramatic) tone between the Cell and Majin Buu arcs.
** The follow-up anime series ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' is set a few years after the DistantFinale of ''Dragon Ball Z''. The finale itself was ten years after the Buu arc.

It was frozen for another stretch, but at the conclusion of a long story arc that ended in a character's death from cancer, it skipped another ten years.

By the time of the very next episode, [[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor "The Day of the Doctor"]] (broadcast in November 2013), some time has clearly passed as she is now an established schoolteacher, acting more mature, and with her nanny days behind her.

* From the newspaper comics, ''ComicStrip/FunkyWinkerbean'' was FrozenInTime for many years, following its HighSchool cast. Then, out of the blue, it time skipped nearly 20 years, almost re-syncing with real time, and follows both those same kids as parents, and their kids as well, attending the same high school. It was frozen for another stretch, but at the conclusion of a long story arc that ended in a character's death from cancer, it skipped another ten years. The intervening years are occasionally covered as {{flashback}}s.



* {{Warhammer40000}}: With the introduction of the Horus Heresy series, there is technically a time skip from the heresy to "present day", 10k years later. While the Horus Heresy game is built upon the same game system as "regular 40k", it's points system does not seem to be balanced against the existing 40k system (with many saying that it has good internal balance, but will utterly crush any current 40k army). Forge World (the producer of Horus Heresy series) differentiate between the two by stating that certain models can be used in 40k, dubbed the "Age of Darkness", and gain extra rules to reflect how they're older technology, but also has adjusted point costs and rules. The Horus Heresy campaign books itself contains several time skips within the Heresy, as it took place across several years with only a few notable events happening (due to it being an intergalactic war).
