A few from my experience:

- byte-compiling
- waiting for dynamic data sources like Helm sources
- Tramp to a slow system
- eww or Gnus pausing while rendering a page/article
- gnus-registry and Gnus searching (lots of data, not all local)
- syntax highlighting (debugging it is... tough and the internals are scary)
- Javascript, Java, C++... parsing complex languages in general

I hope that's useful.
