* One very odd example can be seen in the second set of ''Franchise/{{Angelique}}'' {{OVA}}s. The artwork consists of fairly standard images of characters posing on Tarot cards. The ''background'' however contains some [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v291/s-chan/pink.jpg suspicious background text]] which English-speaking fans figured out came from an article about ''QueerAsFolk''. Remember now -- this is supposed to be a very chaste series of {{Dating Sim}}s for girls... but it does have a very large fanbase of {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s due to the sheer amount of slash-worthy guys involved, making this a rather funny occurrence.

* ''Anime/LuckyStar'' has the round little cat (The AuthorAvatar) from the episode card to the left of the logo with two variations; the first commercial eyecatch is on a green background with the cat yawning; the eyecatch before the [[ShowWithinAShow Lucky Channel]] segment is on a pink background with the cat sleeping and snoring. Both eyecatches conclude with the four main girls saying "Lucky Star!" or "Lucky Channel!" respectively.

* ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' has five eyecatches in each episode, one for each member of the FiveManBand, in variable order, with an animation of the Lyoko avatar, name and face of the character in the XANA logo.
** Interestingly 3 of these eyecatches (Jeremie's, Aelita's and Odd's) use their signature colors (light blue, pink and purple respectively) as a background while the remaining 2 (Ulrich and Yumi) use red and green respectively. While Yumi's signature color of black not being used makes sense as it would make the eyecatch unpleasant to look at and the use of green could count as subtle ShipTease (since green is Ulrich's signature color), Ulrich having a red background is a bit confusing since red is the signature color of William Dunbar, Ulrich's [[TheRival rival]] for Yumi's affection.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' had [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbc541YjsMM thirteen bumpers]] over the course of three seasons. Creator/{{Netflix}} lacks them but television reruns and the DVD sets don't. The first few were still images but after a while they became animated. Most are Jem doing something like singing or just moving around, Jem transforming back into Jerrica, or Jem with Rio (though a third season eyecatch is [[LoveTriangle her in the middle of Rio and Riot]]).

** Starting with Mike episodes of 5 and running through the end of the show's ComedyCentral run, some of the eyecatches would be shots of various experiments in [[MadScientistLaboratory Deep 13]].

* The eyecatches for ''Manga/{{Amaenaideyo}}'' almost always featured revealing attire worn by the ladies. The exception was Jotoku Kawahara, the old lady who ran the temple: She was always fully clothed (thank God).

* The original ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' series had no eyecatch. ''Next'' had a quick montage of the main characters ending with two of them in a couple pose; amusingly, when Gourry and Zelgadis (both men) ended together the screen would shatter. In ''Try'' the montage showed the main characters as children and ended again on a couple pose, but this one seemed to represent possible pairings as they would be at the end of the main story arc (and the series). Both series reused a set number of eyecatches but had unique ones for the last few episodes. For the first time in the series, ''{{Slayers}} Revolution'' has the post-break eyecatch showing events directly connected to the current episode.

** Many if not all UltraSeries shows, beginning with ''Series/ReturnOfUltraman'', use their logos this way.
