* ''VideoGame/AmnesiaTheDarkDescent'': Paintings found in [[EldritchLocation Castle Brennenburg]] change depending on the player character's sanity. Under normal conditions, the portrait of [[BigBad Baron Alexander]] depicts him as an old long-haired gentleman; [[spoiler: if the player's sanity is low, then the portrait's face becomes melted and monstrous - possibly revealing Alexander's true face]]. The castle's other paintings also appear to change depending on your sanity level; this usually manifests as distortion in the figures' faces and the addition of skeletons in the scene. This makes for excellent ParanoiaFuel, just like everything else in the game. Ditto paintings seen in ''VideoGame/EternalDarkness''.

''That's it, scroll right down. You need to go to the very bottom of the page. Got it? Now then, back up. Good. Look closely at the Mona Lisa. Notice anything?''

* A game on the official website for {{Garfield}} called ''Scary Scavenger Hunt'' had a painting in one of the early rooms that depicted a man sitting in a chair, but the picture shows too little to know who it is. Upon revisiting the screen you may notice that the painting was reversed, mirrored, or flipped upside down, or eventually, simply [[NothingIsScarier an empty chair]].

* PlayedForLaughs in the Miiverse trailer for the UsefulNotes/{{Wii U}}, where the {{Basement Dweller}}'s "Non-Specific Action Figure" has a painted-on expression of disapproval when first seen, but after the nerd beats ZombiU, he suddenly shows a thumbs-up gesture with a painted-on expression of approval without being moved.

** There's also the stretching gallery, where the paintings grow to reveal more of the scene, and the Ghostly Ball sequence, which has a pair of pictures of two duelists, back to back, that come to life, turn, and shoot each other.

* On [[TVTropes this very site]] In the forums for Halloween 2012, a system was implemented for the forum avatars that had this effect. When first viewed the avatar pictures are normal, but when you scroll offscreen then return to them, the picture is replaced with a random picture of something scary. Among these include a [[Series/DoctorWho Weeping Angel]], [[Film/TheExorcist demonic Regan]], [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos the Slender Man]], and Franchise/{{Cthulhu|Mythos}}. There were also a few humorous ones like [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite a sprite of Cofagrigus]] and a Weeping Angel with a "ಠ_ಠ" smiley for a face. It was popular enough to inspire the special image for this very page.
