* A non-lethal variant can be seen with drugs that don't immediately take effect, in which case You Are Already Intoxicated. For example, cannabis edibles don't produce a high for thirty to sixty minutes. Inexperienced cannabis users have been known to consume more edibles than they should because they don't initially feel the effects. They're better off just waiting -- when the THC does kick in, they're often in for a nasty shock because all those edibles produce a high that's far too intense.

* In ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'', if you get knocked into the air by an attack and lose your HP as a result of the attack or while in the air (such as due to Fireblight or poison), you won't faint just yet; only when you try to get back up will it suddenly happen. If you can get someone else to heal you in the meantime, however, you'll get back up just fine.

If you can get someone else to heal you in the meantime, however, you'll get back up just fine.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': When you perform an All-Out CombinationAttack that wipes out the enemy party, the enemies will freeze in place for a few seconds so a member of your party can pop a VictoryPose and drop a BondOneLiner, at which point a GoryDiscretionShot shows the enemies' silhouettes erupting into a spray of blood.

A common trope in martial arts series, this involves some form of FinishingMove that does not take effect immediately. When used with martial arts, it may involve PressurePoint attacks or some form of KiAttacks. Assassins may use UniversalPoison to achieve a similar effect. In video games, DamageOverTime abilities often have this effect.

When used with swords there are a number of common variations, often shown with a DiagonalCut. In sword duels, the two sides charge each other and attack. There will be a pause as the two pose, then one (or both) will fall down. Another one is for a MasterSwordsman to perform a series of lightning-fast slashes, and then slowly and dramatically sheath their sword (with an audible *click*) before their attacks take effect.

This trope is not necessarily limited to martial arts, either. In more modern settings, gunshot wounds can often have this effect, since getting shot typically feels like getting punched hard and it is not uncommon for victims to take some time to realize it. This can be exploited for dramatic effect in war movies, where fatally wounded soldiers wander the battlefield before succumbing.

* ''[[Literature/TalesOfDunkAndEgg The Hedge Knight]]'' by GeorgeRRMartin. Prince Baelor feels strange after helping the protagonist win his TrialByCombat, and asks his fellow knights to help remove his helmet. That's when they discover that ''the back of his skull has been crushed,'' and the helmet was basically the only thing holding it together.
