* Mused upon metaphorically in the appropriately titled {{Rush}} song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMSFqXGZ5TQ "Time Stand Still"]]. Notably, it's "Time '''Stand''' Still", as in asking for time to stand still. As opposed to the song by Gary Lewis and the Playboys (at the end of which, said lead singer does a spot-on imitation of his [[JerryLewis father]]).

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' gives us a Shout (called Slow Time) which enables the Dragonborn to slow down time to a significant extent, but it seems to slow down player just a little, too.
** The members of the Psijic Order like to do this to relay secret messages to the PlayerCharacter (only the Psijic monk and the player are unaffected by the timestop).

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' gives us ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** This is one of the many powers possessed by the [[MagicalSociety Psijic]] [[TheOrder Order]] thanks to their [[SufficientlyAdvancedMagic thousands of years in the study of magic]]. Only they and those they choose remain unaffected by the time stoppage, allowing them relay messages or perform secret rituals right in front of groups of people who are none the wiser as
a Shout (called Slow Time) which result.

** In the ReMake, the episode "Groundmouse Day" has Count Duckula create a machine that can pause reality and using it to frame DM for cheese theft and attacking Colonel K. As [[GroundhogDayLoop the title suggests]], it can also rewind if someone hits the wrong button.

** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': [[ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} Peter Maximoff]] uses the super speed version to mess with some Pentagon guards, and to redirect the bullets they had just fired.

** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': [[ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} Peter Maximoff]] uses the super speed version to mess with some Pentagon guards, and to redirect the bullets they had just fired. A similar scene happens in ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', where he arrives at the X-Mansion shortly before it explodes and yet pulls everyone out [[spoiler:except Havoc, who had already been caught in the explosion]] in a few nanoseconds.

* ''The Day Time Stopped Moving'' by Bradner Buckner. A scientific experiment freezes time except for those people who are on the brink of death -- the scientist who was killed by the experiment, the protagonist who [[DrivenToSuicide just shot himself]], and a dog struck by a car. Anything that's not on their bodies can't be moved, so they have to use every piece of metal they are carrying to construct a makeshift wire to reverse the experiment. They succeed but the protagonist is the only one to survive, having not fully passed the threshold.

Sometimes the characters who are still moving will be able to change the frozen world around them; other times, anything frozen is virtually untouchable.

* In ''VideoGame/TimeHollow'', when the main character uses the Hollow Pen (the pen-like tool he uses to change the past), time stops for everyone except himself and anyone else with access to a Hollow Pen. This also applies to people on the other side of a time portal made using the Hollow Pen. [[spoiler:People pulled to the present from the past using a portal made with the Hollow Pen are exempt from having time stop for them even if they aren't holding a Hollow Pen.]]

* Gravitational time dilation at the event horizon of a black hole will make this ''appear'' to happen from an outside observer's point of view. ''Inside'' the event horizon, no change in time's passage is perceptible.

* Marvel character [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiden_Nixon Kiden Nixon]], main character of ComicBook/{{NYX}}, can slow down time to an almost complete stop. She can return to a normal state by touching someone. She has to be extremely careful: the first time she did this, she broke someone's arm by simply poking it.

* The improvisational comedy group Creator/ImprovEverywhere did this in RealLife - with 250 people in Grand Central Station. They all went in and, at the same second, ''froze'' in place for five minutes. Details of the prank, along with pictures and video, can be found [[http://improveverywhere.com/2008/01/31/frozen-grand-central/ here]].

* Sakuya Izayoi, from the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' series, uses [[TimeMaster time-manipulation]] as her main power, allowing her to perform such feats as throwing an unlimited barrage of knives (retrieving them midway via time-stop), [[NinjaMaid or doing all the housework perfectly.]] Not coincidentally, one of her spell cards is named "[[ShoutOut The World]]." The fandom, naturally, has run away with this.
