* ''GalaxyExpress999'': The policy of the train is to stay at each planet for one day of that planet's time; this can't be changed, so passengers only have that long to be on the planet.

* ''OnePiece'' has the log poses, which tell you where the next island is. If you go to an island and want to go somewhere other than where the log pose will set itself to, you have to get off the island before that happens. That was the situation in Jaya: they needed to make sure they left before they lost the heading for Sky Island.

* In EnidBlyton's ''Faraway Tree'' stories, the eponymous tree contains a portal to a magical land, but which magical land it leads to changes regularly. There's at least one story where the protagonists stay too long in the magical land ''de jour'', and when they go back to the portal they find that it's moved on, leaving them stranded.

* ''{{Space 1999}}'': The moon is hurtling through space and can only stay near a planet for a limited length of time that the inhabitants can't affect.
* ''{{Sliders}}'': Whenever our heroes are deposited in a new alternate universe they only have a certain amount of time (as indicated by their gizmo) before the portal can be opened to the next one. It is implied that missing the deadline leaves them stuck in whatever world they were in for 29.7 years, and if they activate the portal again too ''early'' (as they had to do in the pilot) it messes up the co-ordinates so they get sent to a random world rather than the one they came from, thus kicking off the whole premise of the series.

* ZigZagged by Access from the Marvel vs DC comics. His power is twofold. One is to travel between the two comic verses at will (and can take others with him). The other is that if he remains in one world too long, crossovers will begin to occur with greater frequency and volatility until the worlds merge into the AmalgamUniverse.

* Inverted in ''RendezvousWithRama''. Rama, the eponymous AlienArtifact, is passing near Earth for a relatively short time so they have limited time to explore it before it goes away forever.

* In TheSecretOfPlatform13, the gump is only open once every 9 years for a full day, if someone from the Island doesn't make it through the gump by the end of the day, they're stuck until it opens again; which of course happens to the prince at the beginning, starting the plot of the book
