* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Happened in "The Cart Before the Ponies," when three carts collided at the center of the track and demolished the remaining carts in the process. Stars and all.

A moment of violence is replaced with a flash of light, a cloud of dust, or some other momentary obstruction. Lasts less than a second. Used to cover up the actual action while still revealing cause and effect. Can be used to good effect in a FightUnscene, may be present with a SecondPersonAttack, or when a character is hit by something that will immobilize them.

See also BigBallOfViolence, FlashOfPain, HitStop, BattleDiscretionShot, BlackScreenOfDeath, SecondPersonAttack.

SecondPersonAttack. Sometimes combines with a WrittenSoundEffect, as the trope image shows.

* The first two seasons of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', when it was dubbed, was one of the worst offenders of this. FUNimation 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.)

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' sometimes uses these during fight sequences, where instead of directly showing the hits, the screen will go black for a second whilst the movement is shown in a light colour.

* Used in the ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' on-line animations, which made good use of "stylized" LimitedAnimation.

* There is a principle in fluid dynamics called 'cavitation'. When impacts occur at extremely high speed underwater, a flash of light as well as sound and heat can be produced, as seen [[http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/77 here]], in the 'Strike at 20,000 fps' section. It's 11 minutes in. A cooler example would be the pistol shrimp shown [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeFUO2F7Gvw here]], which uses the same principles of cavitation you just mentioned, but can do it naturally.

* 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.
