The Charge Into Combat Cut is a [[CameraTricks Camera Trick]] that is used when a fight is about to start, but the camera cuts away to another scene immediately beforehand or shortly after the fighting begins. This can be done to build suspense as the audience have to wait to see the outcome of the battle, or it may simply be used to pad time before the finale. While in many cases the narrative will return to the fight with the action already in progress, this can sometimes lead to a FightUnscene if the audience only get to see the aftermath of the combat. If done poorly, this can end up being an OffscreenMomentOfAwesome for some viewers.

The Charge Into Combat Cut may involve TwoLinesNoWaiting. It can also overlap with the BolivianArmyEnding when the Charge Into Combat Cut also heralds the end of the work in question.

* Quite common in ''{{Claymore}}'', which uses this to build drama and to avoid long fighting scenes. (Yes, you heard that right: a {{Shonen}} manga avoiding fighting scenes.)
* In the opening scene of ''{{Trigun}}'', after an armed gang demolishes the bar that Vash was drinking in, he slowly stands up after finishing his drink, adjusts his glasses and points his gun at the gang...cue a cut to another town, in which the insurance adjusters on Vash's trail are introduced.

* ''PrincessResurrection'' loves this trope as most of the chapters involve trying to figure out what they're fighting. Once they do and overcome their tricks, we see Hime and her group prepare to fight...before it goes to the epilogue of the chapter with the heroes going about their usual lives.

* The GrandFinale of ''Series/{{Angel}}'' ends with the main heroes ([[AnyoneCanDie or what's let of them]]) about to face down an army of demons sent to kill them. The eponymous protagonist delivers the first blow, [[BolivianArmyEnding and...]] (However, a canon sixth season exists in the form of a comic book, picking up from where the show ended.)
* One of the most famous and poignant examples comes from ''Series/{{Blackadder}} Goes Forth'', which cuts from Blackadder and company charging over the trench to [[spoiler:a field full of poppies]]. Note that that this show is a ''comedy'', albeit occasionally [[BlackComedy a dark one]], and this was a ([[ForegoneConclusion somewhat inevitable]]) SuddenDownerEnding. What's more unusual than the darkness of the situation, though, is the tenderness and sincerity of the scene in an otherwise very cynical, silly and iconoclastic series.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{A song of Ice and Fire}}'' is annoying about this. In cases such as the Battle of Riverrun, the Battle of Craster's Keep, and the Red Wedding, George RR Martin builds up an epic battle, describes the preparations in detail, then goes off and follows some other characters, returning to the battle when it's long over and the characters remark on what a huge, epic, exciting sequence it was.
* Robert Jordan also does this in ''{{The Wheel of Time}}''. Most notable, the decisive battle against the Shaido, during which [[spoiler:Couladin dies]], is entirely skipped over in favour of, um, something else.

* Happens in ''Literature/TheHobbit'', due to Bilbo being knocked out near the beginning of the Battle of Five Armies, and he only learns what happens when he comes to hours after it has finished.

* Present a few times in the anime series version of [[FateStayNight Fate/Stay Night]], mostly to account for fights that weren't narrated within the visual novel. Most notably, it happens for Archer's [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome last stand]] against Berserker.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' does this for most of its battles, to save money and screen time. The main subversion, the Battle of the Blackwater, is the CrowningMomentOfAwesome of the entire series.
