* ''Literature/TheFourHorsemenUniverse'': In the ShortStory "Vvremya", the protagonists launch an [[{{Unobtainium}} F11]]-mining expedition to a planet orbiting a black hole. Some of the crew aren't told this is their destination and refuse to go down to the planet once they arrive, so a LineInTheSand deal is struck whereby they're allowed to stay behind on a shuttle stocked from the expedition supplies. Unfortunately nobody thinks to account for TimeDilation: while only a few weeks pass down on the planet, the shuttle is in a higher orbit and 97 years pass from their perspective, meaning that all aboard starved to death.

* In an issue of ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'', the FF and the Avengers checkout a huge black dome. Iron Man enters with the panel showing him entering and exiting in virtually the same instant. Tearing off his helmet, a bearded and ravaged Tony Stark talks about how he almost exhausted his energy and food packs and demanding why no one came after him. Told he was gone less than a second, he's stunned as to him it was almost three months.

* ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' has the "slow cell", a piece of technology which causes a 1:360 time dilation bubble to form inside it to restrain prisoners who might escape. Five seconds inside the cell is equivalent to thirty minutes outside. [[spoiler:That fact comes back to bite Chromedome in the aft when he is outmaneuvered by Overlord, who escapes the time dilation bubble without alerting anyone and so has thirty minutes to rampage before Chromedome can free himself]].

* While time flows at the same rate in the afterlife in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', several weeks can go by in what feels like a few hours, due to the soul not having any biological needs, the sun staying put in the sky, and the great time one is having. Played for laughs after Roy finds out and keeps asking what time it is every few minutes.

* While time flows at {{Subverted}} in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''--when [[spoiler:protagonist Roy]] dies and learns that the same rate "few hours" he's in the afterlife in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', several weeks can go by in what feels like a few hours, due have actually been months, he assumes that this is what's happening. Actually, it's just that it's harder to the soul not having any ''notice'' time passing when [[TheNeedless you have no biological needs, needs or functions]], the sun staying put in never sets, and you're having the sky, and the great best time one is having. Played for laughs after Roy finds out and keeps of your (un-)life. PlayedForLaughs as afterwords he starts asking what for the time it is every few minutes.couple of minutes.

* In ''TunnelInTheSky'' Rod's father is diagnosed with an incurable disease, so he and his wife go into a Ramsbotham field where two weeks to them will equate to twenty years in the real world. They will stay in the field until a cure for the disease is found.

* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', it turns out mixing teleports and [[TimeStandsStill time-freezing]] technology results in this. Martellus kidnaps Agatha through a hidden teleporter ''[[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20130508#.WfJJCoprzq4 just]]'' as Klaus sets off his "Take Five" bomb, and they spill out of the receiving end ''[[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20130617#.WfJJl4przq4 two and a half years later.]]'' In other words, TimeSkip.

Compare RipVanWinkle, where the pseudo {{Time Travel}}ler sleeps away the years and ages accordingly ([[HumanPopsicle or not]]). Contrast YearInsideHourOutside, where years pass ''within'' the enchanted space but little to no time passes out in the "normal" world. While Year Inside, Hour Outside can make for a convenient way for our heroes to save the world without putting their lives on hold, Year Outside, Hour Inside tends to be a great deal more sinister, for the time lost in the real world can rarely, if ever, be gained back.

* Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin's story "Semley's Necklace", incorporated into the novel ''Rocannon's World'': Semley goes on a quest to recover the lost heirloom of the title, meeting a group of dwarf-like creatures who promise to help her get it back. What she doesn't realise is that they've taken it to another planet, eight light-years away, and thanks to relativity, what seems like a short trip to her is actually 16 years.
