* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', when you get into a scripted or {{Random Encounter|s}}, the background goes black and your character's sprite transforms into the HeartSymbol that represents your SOUL and is pulled directly into the battle menu. There is one cutscene where this sequence gets interrupted and the expected battle does not ensue. Getting hit in a LaserHallway or by one of Undyne's spears is handled similarly, except that you go straight into and then out of the attack-dodging screen. The {{Random Encounter}}s also have a "!" balloon appear over your character's head with an alert sound (an effect which is also used in many non-battle cutscenes); midway into a GenocideRun, however, this exclamation mark is rather creepily replaced with a smiley face.

* The ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' also has color-coded whooshes of the glass-shatter variety. Blue is a standard battle. Gold-yellow is a boss battle or other unavoidable fight. And as in ''Earthbound'', red is a battle where you've been ambushed, and green is for fights where you have a significant advantage at the start.

* ''VideoGame/{{Nightshade}}'': When encountering an enemy, we see the spinning Nightshade insignia.



* The reason for the jump scares over the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' old school woosh? A [=PS1=] game called ''VideoGame/BeyondtheBeyond'' used the zoom in woosh, as well, but the character remained visible, and the zoom never seemed to end (it continued to zoom in and out rapidly until the battle screen was loaded)! This resulted in seeing a rather ugly looking pixalated zoom in of the character at times. The sound was also a suddenly "PEAW!" sound that did decrease in volume, but the second you hear it, you also see a white flash while the screen is zooming in.

* ''VideoGame/AVeryLongRopeToTheTopOfTheSky'': When entering a battle, there is a exploding swirly blackness that fills the screen and then transitions into a swirly distortion of the area map which also has a heat-haze effect.
* ''VideoGame/TheTenthLine'': The game transitions to a separate battle screen when you encounter a group of enemies.

There are several different animations depending on what sort of battle it is (normal, surprise attack, boss, special boss).

* Being that it was a parody of all things Fantasy, including ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', ''Discworld/TheColourOfMagic'' includes a random encounter, where a troll is whisked from its mountain home to the middle of a plain to attack the heroes, much to their--and its--confusion. The way it's described, it almost perfectly matches most of the effects described above, despite predating nearly all of them.
