* ''WesternAnimation/{{Steven Universe}}'' absolutely lives on this trope. For example: -->Steven, After recieving a package: "Ha! This thing is going to help me save the world!" -->Mail Man: "Really? This thing says it's from 'Wacky Sack Supply Company'." -->Steven: "Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl think I shouldn't go on magic adventures because I don't know how to use my gem power." -->([[{{Beat}} beat]]) -->Mail Man: "Seems reasonable."

* Common in ShinyObjectsVideos. ''An Earnest Discussion'' is probably the best example--it ''runs'' on this trope.

In ScriptSpeak, a beat is an instruction in the script to leave a short pause, generally no more than the space of a breath, after a line or gag. Used either to indicate 'thinking time' or to let it sink in to increase the impact of the [[DelayedReaction subsequent reaction]]. For the actor, it indicates a change in thought process. Occasionally it will come just ''before'' the punch line, as a "here it comes" signal to the audience.

* In a similar fashion to the Sky Girls example above, in ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' there's a beat panel after the wall cracks and breaks after [[ItMakesSenseInContext Shima and Rin's demon influenced perverted antics]] seriously caused damage to it, making all the girls and guys suddenly able to see each other. The last thing we get is Shura calling out her sword from her seal and then a scream from the boys.

* ''{{Series/Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' uses this trope to no end, but one example stands out: in the pilot miniseries, Adama calls Col. Tigh out on flipping over a table while completely hammered, inciting a fight between him and Starbuck. Tigh unsuccessfully defends his position.

Modern actors and directors consider scenes to be divided up into "beats". The stage direction "beat" marks the end of a beat. Legend says that famous acting guru Stanislavski introduced the term when touring the United States. He would tell audiences to divide the scenes into "beats". The American actors hearing his lectures didn't realize he was trying to say "bits" with his Russian accent, and have been looking for "beats" in scripts ever since.
