* 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.

* 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]].

Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* A common backstage element in Wrestling Promotions is for a wrestler to be backstage, either looking for someone or just walking around, and will enter a room or round a corner out of the camera's sight. The camera will stop following, or the scene will cut away for a while, but when the camera cuts back or follows after the sound of a struggle is heard, the camera will get there just in time to find a badly beaten wrestler laying on the ground, but no immediate sign of who applied the beating.


Added DiffLines:

* The above mentioned ProfessionalWrestling element is used in ''[[Videogame/WWEVideoGames WWF Smackdown 2: Know Your Role]]'', particularly when "Unknown Wrestlers" (which unlock custom character parts when defeated) make an appearance.

* A running gag on ''PersonOfInterest'' is of them abbreviating a fight scene to only the part where the villain goes flying out of a window.

* In ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', there's a beautiful example of this. Comicbook/LexLuthor has been provoking Comicbook/{{Steel}} for months -- at the moment, Steel's niece is his hostage -- and has often crossed the MoralEventHorizon for reasons related to his "Everyman" project, which has culminated in Luthor gaining [[FlyingBrick Superman's powers]]. Steel's armor has been destroyed, which leads to several pages of NoHoldsBarredBeatdown -- and Steel still gets back up, every single time. Fortunately, Natasha (the niece) [[FlawExploitation uses Luthor's paranoia]] and her own ingenuity against him, ultimately shutting down Luthor's powers. Luthor has an OhCrap moment, and then the next panel is a wide shot of the building, and the sounds of smackdown ''echoing'' across Metropolis. It is ''unspeakably'' [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome satisfying]]. The creator commentary included in the trade paperback reveals that, originally, we were ''supposed'' to actually see the end of the fight, but the writers realized that nothing they could draw could possibly look as amazing as what the readers' own minds would fill in.

* ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'': While his stunt doubles kick the ever-loving crap out of Scott, Lucas Lee steps away from the fight to grab some coffee and check his text messages, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny which are apparently hilarious.]] Before he can sip his coffee, though...

* ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' managed to have one minor example, being an anime that focuses on [[MagicalGirl magical girls]] who fight their opponents by singing. In one scene, Rina encounters a group of boys who want to give her a ride and seem to be thinking naughty thoughts. The scene then switches to a calm scene on the beach. Cut back to the car scene to see the boys knocked out with Rina dusting off her hands.

* ''MyBrideIsAMermaid'' parodies this: During the war between Sun and Lunar's fan clubs, Nagasumi's "epic fight scene" is animated entirely with ''incredibly'' half-assed stick figures. The other characters treat it as if it's mindblowingly awesome.
