* Explicitly {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'': Suddenly, [[DiabolusExNihilo for no reason whatsoever]], Jim is surrounded by a bunch of HighlyVisibleNinja. Cut to a news anchor explaining that because action sequences are expensive, studios have been forced to resort to cheap tricks, such as...
-->'''Earthworm Jim''': (standing on top of a pile of unconscious ninjas) What a great action sequence!

* Parodied in an episode of ''Droopy, Master Detective''. A fight between Droopy and [=McWolf=] consist of the two bowing, and [=McWolf=] flying out the window. When demanding an explanation, Droopy's son shows a recording of the fight in "super slow motion" which is basically the two bowing, Droopy turning into a blur around [=McWolf=], then stopping, then [=McWolf=] flying out the window.

Added DiffLines:

* The RelaxOVision episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'' played with this as well, with Freakazoid commenting that the preceding (censored)fight scene must have blown a good chunk of the studio's animation budget.

* ''Manga/TsukuyomiMoonPhase'' had this problem in the televised version, which was fixed when the show came to DVD.



* In the DC vs. Marvel mini-series, the results of seven key matches were determined by [[PopularityPower fan vote]]; Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} out-polled Lobo, but the writers couldn't think of any way to believably make it happen, so the last blow occurs off-screen as the two (fighting in an alien bar) fall behind the bar. After a couple of {{Beat Panel}}s, Wolverine is the one who stands up. For the record, back in his home series after the event, Lobo says that "[[ComicBook/XMen some bald guy]]" bribed him to throw the fight.

* In one part of a ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' episode where [[ArtShift claymation monsters]] fought, the main characters watch the fight in such a way that the audience can only see the monsters' shadows on the wall. Someone comments on how expensive claymation is, and Soos adds "This is an impressive fight, though. Sure am glad I'm facing towards it."

* A handful of fight scenes from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'''s ''Mata Nui On-Line Game'', but in contrast to many other examples, these used the trope to great effect:

Added DiffLines:

* Played straight in ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' in an episode entitled "The Cartoon" The Watchdogs explicitly stated that they didn't include Hater's fight with Awesome in the cartoon they made because their budget was used up on the fight scene with them in it.
