Crosswicking; The Beatles example is definitely not this trope, which is for visuals.
* ''FushigiYuugi'' does a rather nice one too. Miaka briefly imagines a benign, smiling Tamahome; the image then fades into [[BrainwashedAndCrazy evil]] Tamahome, whose facial expression makes him look very different as he finishes up shredding his letter to Miaka. * In ''OnePiece'', after Luffy successfully obtains Franky's speedo, we see a shot of the Gally-La Company flag waving triumphantly in the background, then a shot of Luffy triumphantly holding up the speedo.

* ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'', although in a print-based medium, pulls it off. And keeps doing it. Notable examples include the memories of Rorschach (interlaced with the Rorschach blot) and Laurie (the reflection of her face in the snow globe is echoed). The Minutemen photo is also prone to this, but the various characters' memories of the Comedian are the best examples. Often overlaps with TwoScenesOneDialogue. ** Laurie's reflection in the snowglobe has another purpose: [[spoiler:It highlights her eyes, which are the same as The Comedian's.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames'': ** After the opening credits, a close-up on Twilight's just-finished device slowly fades out to be replaced by the round dome of Canterlot High's library. ** A couple during the CHS Rally song: First, DJ Pon-3's portable turntable segues into the top of the marching band hat Rainbow Dash is wearing. Then, Rainbow throws said hat in the air, and it turns into the majorette's twirling baton.

%% * On Music/TheBeatles' ''Sgt Pepper'' album, the sound of a cock crowing at the end of "Good Morning, Good Morning" cuts to a similar-sounding guitar chord at the start of "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Reprise". %% ** The stereo mix cuts the two sounds together seamlessly. On the mono version (only released on CD in 2009) there's a split-second pause.

* In ''WebVideo/BroniesReact'', pointing out references in the watched show to another is common within any episode, but for the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames'' reaction this goes one step further. The similarities between Applejack releasing her arrow in slo-mo and Merida doing the same in ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'' is demonstrated with a transition from the former to the latter. Indeed, the images matches perfectly.
