I've noticed this in Coliseum a couple times when an opposing Enchanter is facing my Spider. Enchanter will cast his white (Time Blast) enhanced by Time Surge. Spider becomes "frozen" and will stop taking any damage. Wave will time out and judgement will be rendered by its arbitrary tie-breaking rules.
I've only noticed this with Enchanter and Spider although I can't ascertain whether this is coincidence or if this affects other characters.
