* In the later seasons of ''Series/{{The Flash|2014}}'', Barry's SuperSpeed gets so fast he's able to do this from his perspective. Even bullets barely creep along when he's in this mode. In one episode, he even somehow manages to pull another character into the same frame of reference, having a conversation with her, while barely a second passes for everyone else.

There was also the Turtle in Season 2, who made it ''seem'' as if this trope was in effect. In fact, he was simply draining the kinetic energy of everything around him.

** In another story (both are from Creator/DonRosa by the way), "On Stolen Time", Gyro has invented a stopwatch. A ''literal'' stopwatch. It freezes time for everyone who's not standing within about thirty feet/ten meters of the watch when it's activated. While others see the user teleporting from place to place and things disappearing and appearing, the user sees world frozen around him. At one point, Donald and his nephews manage to get into stopped time with the Beagle Boys, and a chase ensues, with such tricks as the ducks cutting across a pond to catch up with the Beagle Boys, Donald crashing against a butterfly and the Beagle Boys using flying pigeons as a ladder to escape. Rosa later lamented that he didn't simply make the device stop ''movement'' instead of time within a certain radius, pointing out [[FridgeLogic all the practical problems of stopped time]], like solid air.

* [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Ultimecia]] gets this ability in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', both in cutscenes and in-game when she's in [[SuperMode EX-Mode]]. It takes a bit of warm-up time, but once used it leaves the enemy wide open to attacks.

** In the original game, Stop is one of the seven spells. Very useful in most cases, but downright vital if you're going to take on the Clock Tower Phantom, a BonusBoss that gives you the spell's final upgrade.

** In the original game, Stop is one of the seven spells. Very useful in most cases, where any enemy hit by this spell is frozen for a few seconds, allowing you to score some free hits. Once the spell effect ends, every hit lands at the same time. Almost every boss is immune, but it's quite effective against {{Mooks}}, and downright vital if you're going to take on the Clock Tower Phantom, a BonusBoss that gives you the spell's final upgrade.

* Waverider of ''ComicBook/{{Armageddon 2001}}'' has the power to literally make time stand still, which he acquired by stealing a Linear Man's time control device, created by an alternate version of himself that became a Linear Man. He did that on one particular occasion when Superman witnessed the death of young Matthew Ryder's grandfather in a restaurant, enabling him to change from his Clark Kent disguise without being seen by anyone except Waverider, who is (or in the new timeline, was) the future version of Ryder.

In one ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' story, Superman takes advantage of Waverider's ability to freeze time so that he could position himself to rescue two falling construction workers before time resumed.

Its primary power is [[spoiler:to remained locked within a single timeframe, letting Giorno NoSell everything from Universal resetting to Temporal Eradication. It doesn't work against ResetButton and/or GroundhogDayLoop Stand users, however]].

* 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 [[Creator/JerryLewis father]]).

** ''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.
