** Similarly in Tex's [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Egghead]] cartoon "Believe It Or Else." He volunteers to participate in an illusionist's saw-in-half trick (only to attempt to debunk it). His lower half walks off on its own as his top half chases after it.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheDickTracyShow'': Joe Jitsu mixes an invisibility formula that the Brow and Oodles drink. But it makes only the bottom half of Oodles and the top half of the Brow disappear. Joe points out that it will save the city money as they will only need one striped prison suit between them.

* ''Series/MacGyver'' uses the trope name verbatim... In the series' [[GrowingTheBeard first two-part episode,]] Mac is strapped into a fiendish torture device vaguely inspired by ''The Pit and the Pendulum,'' and told by the BigBad that he's about to be [[InvokedTrope half the man he used to be.]]

* The WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail "shapeshifter" has Strong Bad end up as Half the Man He Was Trying to Become -- he tried to imagine himself with the power to [[ExactWords "turn into almost anyone in the world"]] and that's exactly what happens: His attempt to become the King of Town makes him into ''almost'' the King of Town, namely the right half of him. Amusingly, the Cheat doesn't even notice [[BehindTheBlack until Strong Bad turns to the camera]], revealing his missing left half. Then when Strong Bad tries to game this by turning into Bubs-from-the-waist-up (since he's always behind the counter of his concession stand), he, of course, turns into Bubs-from-the-waist-down instead.
