** Similarly, the shots of Eddie performing "On the Dark Side" from ''Film/EddieAndTheCruisers'' that begin the sequel, ''Eddie and the Cruisers 2: Eddie Lives'', are inset into solid black to identify them as taking place the past. (As the action begins these images shift to the TVs mounted in a bar. The TVs are showing music videos, and eventually the veejay comes in to note that the video of the Cruisers was from "a long time ago.")

Added DiffLines:

* Happens sometimes at the beginnings of sequels with close continuity to the previous film, but there is meant to be some passage of time between the two installments:
** The flashback to the previous film that begins ''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock'' is both inset into the black space of the frame and tinted, both explicitly identifying what's being shown as past events. Unusually, the viewer is brought into the past narrative by the inset picture slowly expanding the fill the screen and the color normalizing.

* Parodied on ''Series/GrowingPains'', when Maggie and Jason demand that Ben explain himself. When they ask why he's hesitating, he declares, "I'm waiting for the ripple."
* Parodied on another sitcom when a character becomes thoroughly outraged at everyone else's behavior and declares, "This is a dream!" He then turns to the camera and says, "And you know it because of how the screen wiggled when I fell asleep!"

* ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngineAndFriends'' uses misty borders for flashbacks, and often ripple dissolves to transition to them.

* ''{{Naruto}}'' originally used a comic-book printing dot look for its flashbacks. It didn't last very long.
