* The 1983 NCAA men's tournament final between underdog North Carolina State (coached by the late Jim Valvano) and "Phi Slama Jama" from the University of Houston (which had two future NBA All-Stars in Hakeem Olajuwan and Clyde Drexler) came down to the last possession tied at 52. NC State player Dereck Whittenburg launched a long shot with 3 seconds to go, but his attempt fell far short of the rim... right into the hands of teammate Lorenzo Charles, who rose up to dunk it just as time expired.

They pulled this off in 5 other games on their march to the championship, out of 9 total, 8 of which they were losing in the final minute (3 games were won in overtime, and one was never in doubt)

* ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'': The Deimon Devilbats score a last-second touchdown to trail the Shinryuuji Naga by 1 point with no time remaining, not having gone for the XP attempt yet. Realizing that Sena is at the limit of his stamina and won't be able to last through overtime, Hiruma makes the call to go for 2 on a fake field goal attempt, giving Deimon a one-point victory.

* In the 2014 MLB National League Championship Series, the San Francisco Giants played the St. Louis Cardinals for the second time in three years, and for the Giants, it was their third time in said series in five years. The teams split the series in St. Louis, and San Francisco won the first two in San Fran. Going into the bottom of the 9th inning of Game 5, the score was 3-3. Two Giants got on base and Travis Ishikawa stepped up and hit a 3-run walk-off home run to win it and send the Giants to the World Series for the third time in five years.

* ''Film/{{The Replacements}}'': With a trip to the playoffs on the line, the Washington Sentinels, a team of scabs due to a strike, are trailing a powerful Dallas team that crossed the picket line earlier in the week. Nigel Gruff, the placekicker, goes on to kick the field goal and tie the game, but because he's threatened with losing his pub if he saves the game for the Sentinels, Falco, the QB and holder, changes the play, takes the ball for himself and rushes into the endzone for the game winning TD. Subverted, however, when a holding call negates the TD. Played straight however, when they try for the win on the next play and get the TD, earning the Sentinels a playoff spot (of course, Nigel was injured on the fake anyway and couldn't have kicked the field goal).

It's nearing the end of regulation of a sports contest the main characters are in, and it's a close game. Someone makes a comment that the team could tie it up, and beat the opposition in overtime.[[note]] for confused Brits: this does not refer to the enhanced pay rate earned when you exceed your weekly contactual hours at work. This is what British sporting convention refers to as '''Extra Time''', ie "Manchester United won the 1992 European Cup against Bayern Munich with two goals scored in extra time"[[/note]] They end up doing one better by getting the job done in regulation.

*** [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome "Can Manchester United score? They ALWAYS score..."]]"]]. It has been noticed many times that referees at Old Trafford tend to suffer from a different sense of the passage of time, and add unfeasible amounts of extra time seemingly unjustified by actual stoppages in play. This phenomenon has been referred to as "Fergie Time", for some reason.
