* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': In Season 5, it's stated that the Key can only be used to open portals at a specific time and place, and Glory's minions have to repeatedly remind her she's running out of time to find it. In "The Gift," the Scoobies [[ExploitedTrope use this to their advantage]]; since the ritual can ''only'' be performed at said specific time and place, all they need to do is [[HoldTheLine keep Glory occupied]] until her window of opportunity passes.

* Pious Augustus of ''VideoGame/EternalDarkness'' is counting on the planets aligning to channel enough power to summon his Ancient into the mortal world. He's been waiting for two millenia for this event which of course is at the TurnOfTheMillennium.
* The Grand Cross planetary alignment is a major part of the plot of ''{{Persona 2}}: Innocent Sin''. In ''Eternal Punishment'', it's become a minor background element whose only significance is that absolutely nothing of note happened during it... [[spoiler: acting as an absolute confirmation that the events of the prior game never came to pass in this timeline.]]
