When the bartender sends two thugs after Dante, there's this dialogue between Dante's accomplices to the sound of a violent fight:

-->'''Shaylene:''' I guess ''not''

* ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'' describes the battle against the Third Angel mostly through Misato's worried but still kind of impressed reactions as Rei (who is, for [[PeggySue various]] [[FirstTimeFeeling reasons]], under a great deal of stress at the time) indulges in a bit of PercussiveTherapy.

* Happens a lot in cartoons made by ''Xilam'', such as ''OggyAndTheCockroaches'' and ''SpaceGoofs'', where characters are [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beaten senseless]] off screen. Although we do get to see the [[AmusingInjuries results]].

*Done when the Borg CurbStomp Admiral Hanson's fleet in the Series/StarTrek:TheNextGeneration episode "The Best of Both Worlds." Thanks to lack of budget, the big battle scene turned into the ''Enterprise'' flying through the post-facto debris field. Series/StarTrek:DeepSpaceNine, however revisited the battle as a flashback.

Added DiffLines:

* There's a very similar example as a rare moment of comic relief in the otherwise wrenching second season finale of ''Series/RobinOfSherwood''. When the soldiers arrest Little John, the struggling men go into a building, and we then have a pan along the side of the building with comedy fight sound effects until they all burst out of the back door.
* In ''Series/OrphanBlack'', [[ButtMonkey Donnie]] and [[DarkActionGirl Helena]] (disguised as Donnie's wife Alison) have a nasty confrontation with some gangsters. Helena pushes him out of the building and slams the door, then emerges a few minutes later soaked in the gangsters' blood.

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'': the big battle between the FBI and [[spoiler:Cromartie]] at the end of Season 1 to the tune of Johnny Cash's "The Man Comes Around." [[spoiler:Cromartie slaughters everybody except Agent Ellison, but we only see things from underwater, as bodies come crashing down in the pool one by one.]] ''And a voice spoke and said, "Come and see," [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment and I saw]]. And behold, [[IncendiaryExponent a flaming horse]], [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome and him that was on it was Awesome, and Sweet followed after him]].''

* One ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' strip had Calvin sledding down a particularly treacherous hill. Instead of seeing him crash, we see Hobbes standing at the top of the hill, watching and reacting.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', the fight between [[spoiler:Espada #0 Yammy Rialgo]] and the team of Rukia, Chad, and Renji takes place mainly off-panel. We see them preparing to fight... and then we switch to the Real World for a few months to cover the fights there. By the time we catch up in Hueco Mundo, Much of the battle has already taken place, with [[spoiler:Rukia]] the last one standing.

* The end of the first arc of ''TheTwelveKingdoms''. It's spent something like twelve episodes building up to [[spoiler:Youko rescuing Keiki and claiming the throne]]- then skips over the entire [[spoiler:civil war]] in about 5 minutes. Sure, the series is meant to [[{{Shoujo}} focus more on character interactions]], but ''still''.

* In ''NabariNoOu'', the [[spoiler:Raimei/Raikou vs. Kouichi/Shijima]] fight is mostly off-panel for a practical reason: the fight lasts for several hours. On top of that, [[spoiler:Kouichi and Shijima]] are [[{{Immortality}} immortal]], so it's a ForegoneConclusion that [[spoiler:Raimei and Raikou]] [[HonorBeforeReason are going to lose]].
