* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' has "The Dark Hour", a "hidden" sliver of time occurring exactly at midnight accessible only to a select few (including Persona users). During this time, ordinary people are [[InvisibleToNormals Transmogrified into coffins]] and unable to detect what goes on. It occurs instantaneously to the rest of the world, but Persona users and a few people who have learned to access the Dark Hour can move around, while everything else is, from ''their'' perspective, perfectly frozen in time --the light changes, electricity can't flow, moving vehicles are frozen in place, and so on.
** That last one can be altered by powerful Shadows - the first real boss battle, against Priestess, takes place on a bullet train that the boss has unfrozen... and which is about to crash into another train just up the tracks. The fight's a TimedMission as a result.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': When the protagonist first activates the "Otherworld Navi" app, everyone around him in a crowded intersection freezes, leaving only the protagonist and his Persona / Shadow still moving.

* [[spoiler: Akemi Homura]] of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' has the ability to do this, to the point that people have begun applying the ZA WARUDO meme usually reserved for people like [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Sakuya Izayoi]] to her.

* ''Film/XMen'':
** The audience is led to believe this has happened at the beginning of ''Film/X2XMenUnited'', although it transpires that in fact Professor X has used his mind-controlling powers to put everyone on "pause".
** In ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' [[ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} Peter Maximoff]] uses the super speed version to mess with some Pentagon guards, and redirect the bullets they'd just fired.

* The short lived reality show ''On The Lot'' had a small group of filmmakers working off the pitch phrase, "Out of Time." They decided for two people to suddenly be involved in a TimeStandsStill event. The judges were incredibly impressed with the results, considering they had a day to film and edit it. Brett Ratner, director of ''Film/{{X-Men}}: The Last Stand'' and other SFX heavy films said he had no idea how they did that.

* Dio Brando's Stand, The World, from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' can do this. An interesting example, in that this is played up as every bit as devastating a power as it seems (especially since, unlike many of the other examples, Dio is perfectly capable of damaging objects or people in the time-frozen world). Most of the cast is terrified of him, good ''and'' bad. Only Jotaro comes out of the fight with him still able to stand on his own, and that's only because [[spoiler:his own Stand, Star Platinum, is the same type as Dio's]]. And the only reason ''anyone'' survived ''at all'', as Joseph realized, is because Dio hasn't yet properly synchronized with The World to be able to keep time continuously stopped (he can only keep time stopped for a few seconds from his perspective before he has to let it flow again for a while).
