* The titular "iron-bombing" of Moscow's star in ''[[Literature/TheEschatonSeries Iron Sunrise]]'' by Creator/CharlesStross works in this manner. Not an "iron bomb" [[AirLaunchedWeapons in the USAF sense of the word]], the process involves sending the target star's core into a PocketDimension with a vastly accelerated time flow. [[TimeAbyss As quintillions of years pass in the mini-universe]], the superheated hydrogen cools and [[QuantumMechanicsCanDoAnything eventually transmutes through quantum tunneling into a solid iron crystal]]. When the now-shrunken core is returned to the center of the star, the outer layers fall toward it, bounce off (iron doesn't like to be fused) and rebound explosively. The entire process [[ShownTheirWork is a fair approximation of what actually occurs in a Type II supernova]].

* In ''LightNovel/LogHorizon'', Shiroe comes to realize this trope is in effect within the world of ''Elder Tales''. When ''Elder Tales'' was a game, one in-game day was two real world hours. Doing the math, Shiroe realizes that major dates in the world's history, such as the appearance of adventurers, coincide with real world events, such as the start the game's open beta testing.

* In Creator/DavidDrake's ''Northworld'' trilogy, an exploration team went to a newly discovered world ... and vanished. Another team went, reported the world safe for colonization ... and didn't come back afterward. Colonists went ... and then all contact was lost. The Consensus sent three massive fleets to investigate, one after the other, and each vanished. Then the Consensus got serious and sent protagonist Nils Hansen. This all occurred over the course of a few years. For the explorers, colonists, and fleet crews (or their descendants), it's been roughly ten ''thousand'' years. Also, Northworld consists of nine interlinked universes -- and time spent in one world has no relation to the passage of time in another: you could transfer out of one universe as a bullet flies toward you, spend ''years'' flitting about the other eight, and finally return to the first while the bullet is still in flight.

* Creator/PamelaDean's ''Secret Country'' books avert this. Any time spent in the other world is equal to time passing outside. However, a huge amount of text is devoted to the children's various attempts to fix this problem. [[spoiler: The solution has some pretty bad consequences, which you don't find out until much later]]. They are quite annoyed by it all. As Ruth obsevers, in books they've read things are better arranged.

** ''{{GURPS}}: Ultra-Tech'' has a number of time warping technologies such as the devastatingly effective Tau-Shields. Even at [[TechnologyLevels TL]][[AbusingTheKardashevScaleForFunAndProfit 12]] the technologies are the domain of superscience. In ''Spaceships'' the rules [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything account for relatvity]].

** In ''VideoGame/MegadimensionNeptuniaVII'', "time being all wacky" is one of the first things Neptune complains about when she confirms she's fallen into the Zero Dimension. It never comes up again, as time between there and home because (ending spoilers) [[spoiler:the Zero Dimension is a creation of Kurome, who is isolated in the Heart Dimension, which is a prison dimension created by the Hyperdimension, meaning all three observe the same timescale.]]

It never comes up again, as time between there and home because (ending spoilers) ends up being one-to-one. There's actually a good reason for this, but it's not revealed until the game's end: [[spoiler:the Zero Dimension is a creation of Kurome, who is isolated in the Heart Dimension, which is a prison dimension created by the Hyperdimension, meaning all three observe the same timescale.]]
