* VideoGame/{{Okami}} had an infamous example where the cover of the wii version was pulled from a search engine. If you look carefully at the cover, you will see an IGN watermark.

* Happens just as often as in case of webcomics, whether directly in ClipArtAnimation or traced in Flash. Any time a pistol appears, it's [[http://www.terminal-2.pl/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/gun.jpg this]] picture of a CZ-75. More egregious, if a shotgun is supposed to appear, it's usually [[http://www.theuniteduniverse.nl/weblog/images/new_shotgun.jpg this]] ''airsoft'' shotgun. A bomb? [[CartoonBomb Likely]] [[http://www.h4x3d.com/feat/themes/bomb.jpg this one]]. And so on.

* ''Webcomic/{{Asperchu}}'' does this for most outdoor scenes. Which still puts it ahead of it's [[Webcomic/{{Sonichu}} inspiration]] by actually ''having'' backgrounds.

A common shortcut that creators use is to collect pictures from [[http://images.google.com/ Google Image Search]] and use them as a background. These images are usually run through a filter (almost always some type of blur) on Photoshop, either to lessen focus or to make the image more congruent with the comic's art style. This is often utilized for complex designs (book and video game covers are common examples), but can be seen as a sign of laziness if the artist comes to depend on it.
