* ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'' has one, when Fievel is walking in the sewers. He gets chased by a swarm of creepy cockroaches, and then swings over a chasm, causing the bugs to fall as they attempt to follow Fievel. And at the bottom of this chasm is this... reptilian thing, that eats the bugs as they fall into its mouth. FridgeLogic denotes that such a thing should not exist at the bottom of a sewer. It's never referenced again.

* [[http://www.screenit.com/ourtake/2007/alvin_and_the_chipmunks.html This review]] of ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' states that the two appearances of the opening theme to ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' were this because those parts were put in unintentionally. They were wrong because it was a [[ActorAllusion Director Allusion]], being that Tim Hill worked on SpongeBob in the past.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/{{Hunger}}'', one particularly unsettling scene has Bobby Sands begin to violently convulse during a starvation-induced seizure. As it goes on, the scene becomes overlayed with footage of a group crows flying around some dead trees, and eventually returns to normal as Bobby's seizure ends. The significance of the crows is never elaborated upon, although the footage is repeated towards the end of the film.

* The Death Coach chase scene from ''[[Film/AChristmasCarol2009 A Christmas Carol]]''. Especially jarring considering the rest of the movie is almost faithfully accurate to the book, and then you have this...thing...come out of nowhere, with Scrooge shrinking for no reason, providing an action/comedy scene in the middle of a drama...and then everything continues on as normal.
** The coach ''itself'', by the by, ''is'' in the book, but in a different place (the stairs of Scrooge's house...yeah, it's kind of a BLAM all its own) and without the inexplicable shrinking thing going on either.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/ModestyBlaise'' has its two leads, out of nowhere, profess their love for each other while driving on a country road and then enter into a musical number. Which would be fine if ''Modesty Blaise'' was a musical, but it isn't, and the musical interlude is the only such moment in the film. (The love confession, despite violating the canon of the characters, is not a BLAM as it's referenced again later in the movie; it's how the scene is presented that is a BLAM.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/ThunderbirdsAreGo'' stops the plot for a good five minutes to incorporate a dream sequence in which Alan Tracy imagines that he goes on a date with [[MrsRobinson Lady Penelope]]. They arrive at a nightclub where marionette recreations of the pop group Cliff Richard and the Shadows perform a pop song, "Shooting Star" which is presented as a (pre-period) music video. Scott eventually wakes up and the plot continues; the interlude is never referenced again. Made even more bizarre considering the TV series tended to imply a relationship between Scott and another character entirely (Tin Tin).

* In ''[[WesternAnimation/TomSawyer2000 Tom Sawyer]]'' there is "Friends for Life", a colorful, trippy musical number where Tom and Huck celebrate their friendship while stranded on an island. They ride on giant bees, are swallowed by sentient water before being spat out onto a shore, and are lifted up on the heart-shaped leaf of a huge smiling plant. It has no relation to the plot, and nothing from it is ever mentioned again.

* In ''[[WesternAnimation/TomSawyer2000 Tom Sawyer]]'', there is Tom's dream sequence, "Can't Keep a Country Boy Down". It's animated in [[ArtShift a different, far more surreal style]] than the rest of the film, and shows Tom as an adventurer in various settings and periods in history. He fights pirates for treasure, rescues a damsel tied to a railroad track, is seduced by a female genie, and even ''[[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext swipes a gem from a tribal leader monkey's bellybutton]]''. It has no relation to the plot, and nothing from it is ever mentioned again.
