* 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.

to:

* 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.

to:

* Henry of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Fire Emblem Awakening]] does this perpetually, whether he's cheerful, nervous, cheerful, calm, or cheerful. His calm expression really mimics most examples of this trope, though. (Every expression has his eyes closed, save for the nervous one.)
