* The [[Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}} Contractually Obligated Chaos]] series sees roughly three and a half years pass between the end of the first story and the start of the second, then four months between the end of the second and the start of the third.



* There was a huge jump in time between ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' and ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'', most notable with Andy having already graduated high school and going off to college. This was done to accommodate with real-time since most of the kids who watched the first two movies are already in college.
** The voice actor for Andy had grown up also and they wanted to use his voice for all three movies, so it made perfect sense that Andy had grown up to match his voice actor.

* Used very pointedly in ''Literature/ThePrincessBride.'' Because Creator/WilliamGoldman claims to be 'abridging' the original novel, he often cuts out chunks of what he claims are very boring pieces of narrative. The TimeSkip comes when Buttercup, having agreed to marry Prince Humperdinck, must go through a few years of royalty schooling in order to become a princess. Goldman says this is terribly dull and so he boils it down to simply this: "What with one thing and another, three years passed."



* The final DLC of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' takes place two years after the ending of the main game, serving as the Inquisition's GrandFinale.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* Creator/AnneMcCaffrey skips around seventy years between ''Literature/ToRidePegasus'' and its first sequel, with several main characters in the latter being children or grandchildren of characters in the former. One character who appears in both is Dorotea Horvath, who goes from being a small child to being an octogenarian grandmother.

** Off-screen due to time travel - in "The Impossible Astronaut" The Doctor claims to be 1,103, even though Amy points out that two months earlier he was 908. Oddly plausible because of [[spoiler:the time he apparently spent solo after bringing Amy and Rory home in "The God Complex"]], but complicated in that [[spoiler:this was a future Doctor pulling a ruse to [[FakingTheDead stage his own death]] with the ''[[RobotMe Teselecta]]'']], and producer Creator/StevenMoffat's [[WordOfGod claim]] that The Doctor can't even keep track of his age anymore.
** There is then a three-month one between 2011's "The Impossible Astronaut and the following episode, "Day of the Moon", while Amy, Rory, and River find out the extent of the Silence.

** There are two definite time skips earlier in the series: one between 1989's "Survival" and the 1996 TV Movie (Ace has gone, the Seventh Doctor has visibly aged, and the TARDIS interior has been remodelled), and one between the TVM and 2005's "Rose" (the Time War, which, according to recent information, [[spoiler:involved an entire incarnation, who died of old age]]).

** There are two definite time skips earlier in within the series: 16-year hiatus: one between 1989's "Survival" and the 1996 TV Movie (Ace has gone, the Seventh Doctor has visibly aged, and the TARDIS interior has been remodelled), and one between the TVM movie and 2005's "Rose" (the Time War, which, according to recent information, 2013's "The Day of the Doctor", [[spoiler:involved an entire incarnation, who died of old age]]).



*** After "The Deadly Assassin", as well as after "Invasion of Time", both periods in which the Fourth Doctor was wondering solo. The timeskip after the first is about a year or so due to the fact that he gives his age to Leela in "The Robots of Death" as one year older than he'd given it to Sarah Jane a few stories prior (unless it was a lot longer and the Doctor was knocking off a decade or two to flatter himself in front of her much as he does to impress Romana in "The Ribos Operation"), but "Invasion of Time" likely has a much longer one.
*** Between "Shada" and "The Leisure Hive", between which the Doctor appears noticeably older, drastically changes his style of dress, has suddenly started affecting a more mature and brooding personality, and goes from holidaying to seeking out a new holiday as he hasn't been on one in ages. At that time, his companions were a robot and a Time Lady, both of which are as ageless as he is.

** Some further skips are implied by adventures the Doctor has apparently been on offscreen - like how the Doctor and Professor Zaroff in "The Underwater Menace" seem to know and recognise each other even though it's only the Second Doctor's third on-screen story, and the unseen adventure that led to "The Face of Evil".
** In the audio drama "Orbis" the 8th Doctor spends 600 years trapped on the planet Orbis and claims he doesn't always use the same definition of year.
** There's two pretty massive time skips in [[Recap/DoctorWho2013CSTheTimeOfTheDoctor "The Time of the Doctor"]]. Left to defend a small town on a human colony world from a plethora of hostile aliens, [[spoiler:the Doctor sends Clara home in the TARDIS because the situation is too dangerous. When she returns, 300 years have passed and the Doctor has visibly aged, needing a cane to walk. After she is sent home again, and is later returned, centuries more have passed, and the Doctor is decrepit with age and close to death, having no more regenerations to heal himself.]]

* 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.

''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 ''YogisTreasureHunt''.

** ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' picks up six months after the events of the [[Film/StarTrek previous film]]. Incidentally, the real-life gap between filming was four years. SimonPegg has even commented on the weirdness of picking up where they left off after such a relatively long break. Also, Kirk's speech at the end takes place [[spoiler:almost a year after the Vengeance crash lands in San Francisco]].
* ''Film/XMen'': There can be fairly long gaps of time within the individual stories and in between some movies.
** ''Film/XMen1'': It begins in 1944, and then jumps to 2005.[[note]]The latter is confirmed by Viral Marketing for ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast''.[[/note]]
** ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'': There is a 6-year gap after Logan quits Team X, but it hasn't been made clear when precisely in the TheSeventies and/or TheEighties the story takes place.
** ''Film/XMenFirstClass'': Has a few scenes in 1944, and then moves forward to 1962.
** ''Film/TheWolverine'': There is a flashback from 1945, and the rest occurs in 2013. TheStinger is in 2015.
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': Goes back and fourth between 1973 and 2023. TheStinger is set ''thousands'' of years ago in Ancient Egypt.
** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': There are scenes in Ancient Egypt, but the main setting is 1983.
** From ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'' to ''Film/TheWolverine'': 7 years.[[note]]Viral Marketing for ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' has established that these movies take place in 2006 and 2013, respectively.[[/note]]
** From the "Two Years Later" [[TheStinger stinger]] of ''Film/TheWolverine'' to the 2023-era scenes of ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': 8 years.
** From ''Film/XMenFirstClass'' to the 1973 portion of ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': 11 years.

** A much longer timeskip happened with the launch of ''Mechwarrior: Dark Age''. It is set in the same timeline as ''[=BattleTech=]'', just in 3132 instead of 3067 (where ''[=BattleTech=]'' was at the time). Because of that, it presented the major Word of Blake Jihad, started in 3067, entirely as backstory to the Dark Age era. This also massively spoiled most of the major events of the Jihad era. Combined with the [[DorkAge radical changes to the game's rules]], moving to a [[CollectibleCardGame CCG]]-style rather than ''[=BattleTech=]'''s standard board-game, fans were not pleased.
