* ''Art/TheLastSupper'': Thomas, the apostle to Jesus's left, is raising his index finger as if to make a point. This could be an indication of his doubt in Jesus's accusation, referencing the doubt Thomas has in ''Literature/TheFourGospels'' when the Apostles claim Jesus has risen from the dead.

* Practical Pig in Disney's ''Disney/ThreeLittlePigs''. The finger point, in fact, was very common in the early days of TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, as mentioned on ''Literature/TheIllusionOfLife''. Animators were starting to animate dialogue, and the pointing finger was the most popular way of hitting the accents on the voice track. As their skills improved and found more sophisticated ways of matching the vocals, use of the finger was curtailed as too cliche.

* Used in ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''. Often, keeping in tune with [[OffModel the show's style]], the finger will be ridiculously larger and more detailed than the rest.
