When you've dug deep down into a RacingGame or something similar, you feel so almighty and professional that you just want a way to prove it, and what's a better way than to do a race as quickly as possible; though there is the problem at all those extra cars might prove to hinder that time a bit, and those power-ups won't help at all, so for your convenience, there is Time Trial, or alternatively, Time Attack.

* ''VideoGame/{{Need For Speed}}'' series has these. ''Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2'' features "Deliverys" which you avoid the police and get to the finish line. Time trials in the championship string are the same, just without the police chases.

** ''Videogame/CrashBandicoot3Warped'' has a mode which allows you to replay any level you have completed with a timer, with some of the [[CrateExpectations crates]] turned into Time Crates that stop the timer for a few seconds when broken. You are handed different coloured Time Relics depending on how quickly you finish. Thankfully, you get the ability to dash after beating the FinalBoss.

* ''VideoGame/MarioKart'' in all incarnations. Yes, you can play without having to worry about that [[ScrappyMechanic bloody blue shell]]. However, you are not entirely item less in this mode; you're given three speed mushrooms (which can be used at any point, but can't be replenished) so that you can practice with the best places to use them.

* Every stage in ''MischiefMakers'' is a Time Trial, complete with the [[RankInflation S grade]] for completing it in minimum time. One of the stages is an AutoScrollingLevel, and the highest rank is only by grabbing the star before it enters the screen.

* ''VideoGame/FZero'' naturally has a time trial mode, but ''F-Zero GX'' actually has this as the final story mission; race against a staff ghost on a track with no rails and beat it.

** In ''F-Zero AX'', each course has a target time. Beating the target time will add a stamp to your License Card. Each course also has a staff ghost to beat, which in practice is an even harder target time.

* ''VideoGame/{{Eschatos}}'' has a Time Attack mode, but [[SubvertedTrope in practice it's "Time + Death Minimization Trial"]]. Obviously, clearing out waves and bosses faster gives you a better finishing time, and the basic goal is to finish the game before the time limit runs out. Killing a wave fast enough freezes the time limit momentarily, clearing an area extends the timer by a large amount, getting a OneUp adds 15 seconds to it, and getting killed takes away 5 seconds on top of the time spent respawning (fortunately, you have infinite lives in this mode). At the end of the game, the remaining time is subtracted from your total time to produce your final game time.
