* Similar to the ''Family Guy'' one above, ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'' also did this in an episode that parodied Batman, where Space Ghost would "get a word" every time he shot something with his powerbands.

* Used in an unusual scene in the 1983 Lou Ferrigno film ''Film/{{Hercules}}'', where the title character fights a bear. When Hercules punches the bear from the POV of the animal, his fist flies towards the camera repeatedly, and each time, strange strobe lights flash and lasers sound, due to the cheap FX used in the low-budget film.

* Occurs at least twice in Ryuhei Kitamura's film ''Versus''. The most noticeable example is that of a crook who goes into hysterics and is becalmed by a pistol-whip from his partner.
* The Christian-themed, possibly-fake, and terminally-Canadian movie ''The Rev'' had a habit of slowing the scene to a freeze, fading to black, and jumping to the next action with no fade-in. It's as if they sat around and asked "What is the most noticeable way we can think of to avoid showing violence?"

* Happened in ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk''. When Blonsky hit Spars in the face with a chair, the POV was hers and there was a split second of blinding white.
* Used during Wez's fatal headbutt attack in ''Film/TheRoadWarrior''. Not exactly censoring anything, since it shows the limp body being thrown over the wall immediately afterwards.

* The first two seasons of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', when it was dubbed, was one of the worst offenders of this. The company that dubbed it took special care to delete every frame where a hit connected and replace it with a sloppily-drawn star on a black background. (And in a show where the main draw are the big fights, it's not hard to understand why this was so horrible.)
** Same goes for the edited version of ''Anime/DragonBallKai'', where ''many'' hits are replaced with this and barrages of punches or blasts are completely removed.
