Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' uses a star-shaped IrisOut (complete with a "pop" sound) to end most, but not all, episodes, especially in the first season. Usually, it irises in on Steven, but it seems to like closing in on any character who's just said something funny or awkward. In a video [[spoiler: that Steven's mom made him]] we even see that her camcorder can do the same effect at the press of a button.

* ''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.
