* One of Daniel Jackson's many, ''many'' deaths on ''Series/StargateSG1'' involved this. Pulling from the Real Life example of radiation poisoning below, Daniel was exposed to a very lethal dose of really bad radiation, and the rest of the episode was was about knowing that he would die, basically no matter what anyone did.

** Before, in ''Part 2'', when Lisa Lisa kill the vampire named Wired Beck.



* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' uses this often, seeing how it's a show about ninjas.

** Not sure if it applies, but earlier in the film Slade shoots one of the Ferguson brothers in the head and it takes several minutes for him to fall down.

** Some enemies have a doom-like ability that is un-dispellable. Essentially, you're already dead, you've just been given a short grace period. This also appears in the KingdomHearts series.

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' has this happen during a fight between Virgilia and Beatrice. One of the combatants makes an illegal move which means that she lost the fight automatically, as she did not successfully counter all attacks.[[spoiler:The soon to be loser is about to kill her opponent when she informs her of this. This causes all attacks made after that point to be illusory because she was already dead. The previously checkmated opponent is therefore left completely unharmed]]

* Take a high enough dose of hard radiation and you're guaranteed to die rather suddenly... in about three days. There's even what's known as the walking ghost phase after the exposure there are no direct symptoms and you feel fine for up to a day. What is happening is it takes time for things to die, and they're normally replaced, but those replacements aren't happening now, as your bone marrow is dead. And if you see critical fissionable material, such as the molten reactor core in the ruins of Chernobyl, you've already recieved a lethal dose of gamma rays.
* Ricin, the deadliest non-radioactive poison (it prevents protein synthesis), has a similar delayed sudden death effect.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has a variation of this in the move "Perish Song." Once it's used, both the user and the target will faint after three turns. Unlike a lot of examples of this trope, there is a way out for the hapless victims of the move: switching them out for another Pokemon. But if you can't do that for some reason (last remaining Pokemon or under the [[YouWillNotEvadeMe Arena Trap/Shadow Tag]] ability), you're screwed.
** Pokemon has a number of timed-delayed attacks, and they're usually quite powerful to compensate. Doom Desire, Future Sight, Phantom Force and its big brother Shadow Force, and Brave Bird all take a turn to actually inflict damage, but the're almost all unblockable by the likes of Protect/Detect, and the recipient WILL feel it. "Badly Poisoned" is an [[StandardStatusEffects ailment]] that does progressively more damage as time goes on: pretty soon, it'll outrun any attempts at healing. A non-lethal variant appears in the move Yawn: on the turn it's used, it does nothing. At the end of the following turn, however, the recipient [[StandardStatusEffects dozes off]], leaving it at the mercy of its foe.

*** Let's just say you might want to put your headphones away if you hear ''Pop Goes the Weasel'' on a music box. That means that you failed to keep the music box wound up and now the Puppet is coming for you.

** ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'': Stung by a Cazador or Radscorpion? Started to feel woozy? Down some antidote, '''and fast'''. Out of antidote? Well, you're fucked: their poison doesn't wear off over time, and it'll chip away at your health until you keel over.

* ''VideoGame/Fallout3'' features the Mole Rat Repellent Stick developed by [[CloudCuckooLander Moira]]. A Mole Rat hit with this will start to smoke for a few seconds and then...[[YourHeadAsplode POP]]. Moira's less than pleased with this outcome: she meant to make it non-lethal.
