* Invoked in ''Film/GrandCanyon''. Director Davis (Creator/SteveMartin) is upset that while he wanted a MoneyShot of a bus driver's BoomHeadshot, a discretion shot was used.

* While normally averted in ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' Menu tearing apart and eating the scientists in the cabin is shown as a silhouette, and then just the gore encrusted things in the room.

Most often used with women and children, because [[MenAreTheExpendableGender it's more okay to hurt men in Hollywood]], but available for everyone to control the tone/rating of the work. Often found in the form of a ReactionShot as the reacting characters' expression (or lack thereof) can serve as a commentary on the action, the character, or the world they inhabit. Sometimes combined with BloodSpatteredInnocents, as the gore splatters on or near them.

** In the short "The Two Mouseketeers", Tom is charged with guarding a king's banquet in 18th century France, and told that if he fails to do this, "[[OffWithHisHead off comes ze head]]". After spending the cartoon (unsuccessfully) battling Jerry and Nibbles, Tom is presumably beheaded offscreen: we get a distant shot of the top of a guillotine and see the blade come down. [[GratuitousFrench "Pauvre, pauvre pussicatte ..."]]

** General Woundwort's death. While the film is fairly graphic throughout we don't see the outcome of his demise when he picks a fight with the dog that Hazel lead to him and his officers, we see the two about to clash with their jaws open, the camera then cuts away before the impact.

While the film is fairly graphic throughout we don't see the outcome of his demise when he picks a fight with the dog that Hazel lead to him and his officers, we see the two about to clash with their jaws open, the camera then cuts away before the impact. This also makes it ambiguous [[NeverFoundTheBody whether the dog manages to kill Woundwort or not]].
