Contrast {{Gorn}}. Compare and contrast BattleDiscretionShot and NothingIsScarier; though this may be less "scary" than not showing anything at all in a less overtly violent work, in {{Gorn}}ographic works this can be used for horror--with all this overt violence running around, ''what'' is so horrible you don't get to see it...? See also EmpathyDollShot and PinkMist. May precede a MortalWoundReveal, especially if it's unclear who exactly got injured--note that this is a {{Subversion}} of sorts, when it does happen.

Added DiffLines:
* PlayedWith in ''VideoGame/NeverendingNightmares''. The game has a lot of ridiculously violent scenes and {{Gorn}}, but if Thomas should die (or inflict SelfHarm) the game will cut to him waking up in a bed... right in the middle of watching his throat be bitten out, his hand reduced to a bloody pile, having his intestines pulled out, et cetra. ** Played straight in a later scene, where an unseen monster will kill a younger Thomas in the dark. [[NothingIsScarier We hear the action and his screaming]], but the most one could make out in the dark is a blood puddle if they're truly observant.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}:
to:
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}:''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':

* The ''Manga/SchoolLive'' anime does this, while the manga usually opts for being more graphic. For example when Kurumi killed her zombified crush the anime cuts out the stabbing and instead shows Yuki's reactions to it. In the manga we saw the impact, albeit a silhouette, and ''Kurumi'''s reaction was depicted (she ended up being splattered with blood).

Added a subversion in Road To Perdition
Added DiffLines:
* ''Film/RoadToPerdition:'' Subverted. Michael shoots [[spoiler:Connor]] in his bath; we see Michael through the bathroom doorway, but his victim is off-camera. Then the bathroom door swings shut, and we see—reflected in the mirror on the bathroom door—the victim slumped in the bathtub, with his brains blown over the bathroom wall.

* In ''{{Smallville}}'', more and more as the series [[AudienceShift gets more mature]], and non-discretion shots starts appearing in later seasons. ** ''Hidden'': Chloe and Gabriel struggles for a gun, and it fires, out of view, and blood splatters on the window. For a few horrible moments it seems that Chloe was shot (won't be too much of a difference because she couldn't stop the missile anyway and [[BroughtDownToNormal Clark]] was also shot by Gabriel just before) but then Gabriel went limp. ** ''Static'': A few during the rampage of [[ImAHumanitarian Alder]]. Unfortunately subverted by some scenes. Kindly keep your BrainBleach handy. ** ''Trepass'': The blood under the door version. [[spoiler:Subverted later.]]

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/TheThing''. When one of the squad mates early in the game commits suicide, it seems like the game won't show it...and then he blows his brains all over the wall in full view. And you can examine the massive hole in his head after you regain control.

* In the last comic of the XWingSeries, [[ManipulativeBastard Isard]] got rid of one of her superiors by having a left-handed shopkeeper kill him with a Sith lanvarok he'd been wanting to buy. We never see the lanvarok or the death, but Isard [[http://img243.imageshack.us/img243/7309/swrsmr413.jpg looks through]] a little, bloody window and muses that being left-handed is a distinct advantage when using a lanvarok.

* While ''SamuraiShodown'' usually averts this, a couple of characters use this for particularly gruesome {{Finishing Move}}s. Kusageredo, for example, hauls the enemy offscreen before ''devouring them'', and he then lumbers back onscreen and coughs up their skull. Another character (Suija) lifts his enemy offscreen, ''crushes and liquefies him/her and let their blood rain down on him!''

* ''[[Film/TheMummy1999 The Mummy]]'' uses this several times, though it usually shows the aftermath, which is downright creepy. This mostly amounts to [[BigBad Imhotep]] sucking the life force out of several people and therefore leaving them as shriveled corpses. Special mention goes to the death of Anck-su-namun, Imhotep's recently-resurrected lover from Ancient Egypt--who Jonathan sics some mummified soldiers on and her death is shown only as shadows while they hack her to pieces--and [[TheDragon Beni]], who [[spoiler: becomes trapped in a tomb at the end and is surrounded by thousands of flesh-eating scarabs in dwindling torchlight, which goes out just before they get to him, and the scene cuts to outside as he starts screaming]].
