* ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'': Elsa makes it to the peak of North Mountain in the time it takes Anna to get her horse ready and leave Arendelle. Yet it takes Anna and Kristoff at least a day to reach it. Elsa's headstart is somewhat justified by the fact that [[AnIcePerson she ran across the fjord]], while Anna had to go the long way around, but it's still an absurd time difference. This is especially pronounced given that Anna is guided by experienced mountaineer Kristoff and spends half the journey on sled, while Elsa has never left the castle and makes the entire journey walking in flimsy formal clothing. [[UpToEleven Then Hans decides to go up the North Mountain the next day accompanied by guards, and is implied to get there that evening not long after Anna left.]]

* In ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'', Harry manages to get from his home in England to a church in the United States quickly enough that A. Eggsy is still hanging around and checking Harry's laptop, and B. Harry expects to be back soon to continue a conversation. Apparently the Kingsmen have a ''really'' quick way to get around.

Even if we assume Harry took a private jet, that's an 11-hour flight by commercial standards. Apparently the Kingsmen have a ''really'' quick way to get around.

* On ''WesternAnimation/SpecialAgentOso'', whether Oso is halfway across the country or on the moon, you can be sure that as soon as he's informed of a child in trouble, he will arrive in time to help that child before it's too late, then return in time to finish his training exercise without inconveniencing anyone.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasandFerb'' should have lasted only 104 episodes, as stated in the theme song (''There's a hundred and four days of summer vacation...'') yet more that 130 episodes have been aired so far. As well as a ChristmasEpisode and a HalloweenEpisode...

* On ''WesternAnimation/CreativeGalaxy'', travel takes as long as it takes for Arty to quite literally draw up the Creative Spark rocket ship in mid-air and zip to the planet where he wants to create his art in RealTime as a bit of cheery music plays. On the way back, a special "speed" for the ship is specified, such as "quiet speed" when Arty needs to get home without disturbing his baby sister, but the speed is again always just long enough to give an impression to little kids of time passing and get back in time to have taken care of the problem without anyone having to wait very long.

**** These examples could be partially justified by the fact that knowing the seas you're sailing or having special technologies matters a lot in the world of One Piece. For example, Marine ships are coated in seastone, making them able to cross the Calm Belts that would otherwise be deadly monster-ridden areas, allowing for excellent shortcuts to and from the Grand Line. One imagines that at least Shichibukai and Yonkou have something similar or equivalent. In the Grand Line, travel is regulated by Logue Pose, which requires time to attune to a given island and point to the next, but there exist Eternal Pose (always pointing at an island) and Vivre Cards (always pointing at a person) as well. With a suitable array of both you can navigate much more freely and probably follow more optimal routes - something a powerful pirate surely must be able to do. By comparison, the Strawhats are relative greenhorns who are still establishing a name for themselves and discovering the Grand Line's inner workings as they go. Pirates who rule it for years must have better ways of moving around than them.

* This is a staple of {{Soap Opera}}s, with characters exiting one scene and entering another even if they have to go all the way across town -- or, indeed, across the ''continent''.

* First two seasons of ''Roleplay/TheMassiveMultiFandomRPG'' take place in a city which keeps randomly shifting its layout when no one is looking. This is highly convenient for the players, as no matter where the characters are, they can immediately arrive anywhere else as quickly or as slowly as desired.
* The ''Roleplay/CityOfLostCharacters'' roleplay, being a SpiritualSuccessor to ''The Massive Multi-Fandom RPG'', also takes place in an ever-shifting city with similar benefits for the players.

** The fanfic ''Fanfic/{{Intercom}}'' theorizes this is because the Mind World operates on slight NarniaTime or YearOutsideHourInside, with things in Headquarters happening immediately (and by extension the Islands since they're linked to it_ while everything else moves slower in comparison.
