* ''Anime/TransformersHeadmasters'', ''[[Anime/TransformersSuperGodMasterforce Masterforce]]'', and ''[[Anime/TransformersVictory Victory]]'', the created-for-Japan sequels to ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'', kept the original series' faction symbol wipes, although they would be redrawn in a simplified manner later on.
** ''Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'' had CGI versions of the faction symbols, at least in the English dub.
** They were also used in ''Anime/TransformersArmada'', but their use was inconsistent. They were dropped entirely for ''Anime/TransformersEnergon'' and ''Anime/TransformersCybertron''.
* The {{Anime/Pokemon}} short, Pikachu's Vacation has pretty lengthy and [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs trippy]] transitions, showing various Pokémon performing some actions. The first time, it's easy to think that it's part of the actual short, and not a transition.

* The 1931 film adaptation of ''[[Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde]]'' uses what might be described as diagonal wipes, where a wipe starts on either the left-hand side and pivots in a clockwise motion across the scene, or a wipe starts on the bottom of the frame and pivots in a counter-clockwise direction. Just to make it more idiosyncratic, the wipe usually stops in the middle for a little bit, resulting in a diagonal SplitScreen where action is going on in both corners, before restarting and finishing the transition to the new scene.

* The ''Series/{{Batman}}'' example below is parodied once on ''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway''.
* In Disney's ''Disney/SaludosAmigos'', the "Gaucho Goofy" segment features some imaginative wipes, a couple where a solid line moves from one side of the screen to the other, [[BreakingTheFourthWall pushing Goofy and his horse along with it.]]
* Some of the Franchise/{{Barbie}} movies do this. Also done in ''WebAnimation/BarbieLifeInTheDreamhouse''.

* ''Film/BattlefieldEarth'' had quite a number of unorthodox wipes. The director claimed he was aiming for a 'live action cartoon'. The annoying wipes did help distract from the [[DutchAngle obnoxious camera angles]], but not from the performances. The only wipe was the centre-screen split. Which made the other three or so transitions look like masterpieces.

* To complement the show's setting, ''WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob SquarePants}}'' usually uses bubbles (and an appropriate sound effect) for its wipes, other than the occasional brief cut-away, or whenever else quick transitions are needed.

* Most ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series games from ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' onwards will have a Mario/Luigi-shaped iris when you beat a level and a Bowser-shaped iris when you lose a life. Most levels begin with a round iris, and in both ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' and ''SuperMarioGalaxy2'', if you lose all your lives the iris out will be shaped like the words "GameOver" instead of Bowser's head.

* The Creator/DICEntertainment-dubbed version of the first two seasons of ''Anime/SailorMoon'' added these through CGI (with sounds to boot!), which just made the [[OffModel crappy]] first-season cel animation that much more noticeable in contrast.[[note]]It also meant that each episode had to be edited for time (moreso than they already were) in order to include them.[[/note]] The Cloverway dub did the same for Sailor Moon S and Sailor Moon [=SuperS=], but not as often.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Homer shows a strong preference for star wipes when video editing. Then, a star wipe is used in the episode itself.
* The ''Series/{{Batman}}'' version has also been parodied several times, once for Child Safety Services.
* The second season of ''AmericanDragonJakeLong'' featured zooming from one bit of a map to another when changing locations, accompanied by a scratching record.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' uses a "claw wipe" - criss-crossing parallel tears, as though from a gargoyle's claws, through the previous scene into the new one.
