* Late silent-era film ''Film/DesertNights'' has a couple of peculiar jump cuts that play like something is missing from the surviving film. In any case, there's a shot of Diana the jewel thief telling her partner Steve that they should turn themselves in, followed by a Jump Cut to Steve holding a gun on Diana and their kidnap victim Hugh, followed by a Jump Cut to a shot of Steve leaving with all the stolen diamonds.

* ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'' likes using jump cuts, which fits with it being a {{Mockumentary}}. The "real" reason for this is often to glue together a series of ThrowItIn bits, such as with [[http://www.hulu.com/watch/110482/parks-and-recreation-im-just-a-girl this scene]]. Another episode has a ConfessionCam scene with a drunken Ann. As filmed, Rashida Jones paused between two lines, but when the episode was edited, the editor decided to turn the pause into a jump cut in order to give the impression Ann had been ranting for a long time. This is pointed out on the DVDCommentary for that episode.

* [[{{Ashens}} Dr. Ashen]] is a one-man, one-camera operation who films stuff on his couch or kitchen floor. Every time the doorbell rings or he sneezes on the camera he has to jump cut over it. He never fails to tell you ''why'' there's a cut, though, and it's always reasonable.

* Similar to the Star Wars example above, a huge portion of special effects in {{Tokusatsu}} series boil down to a jump cut with a bunch of flashy stuff over top to try and hide it. Used for everything from henshin sequences to weapons appearing to form changes to robot buddies switching from props to CGI. They've gotten good enough over the years that they can be nearly imperceptible, but later episodes often don't try as hard as the budget and shooting schedule wear thin, and all bets are off for seasons from the 70s or 80s, which almost never make an effort to hide their many jump cuts.

Note the scarcity of examples; jump cuts are considered big no-nos by most directors and [[ContinuityEditing avoided by most Hollywood editors]]. Inadvertent examples can often be found in the atrocious B movies picked-apart by {{MST3K}}, as indicated above.

* [[strike:Used]] [[strike:Abused]] ''Perfected'' in WebVideo/MarbleHornets where the cuts are created by either J creating them, [[spoiler:Slender Man causing disturbances, or someone (totheark?) messing with the video.]] The latter two types are noticeably effective.
