* In the DavidBowie video "As the World Falls Down" (from the film ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}''), the female protagonist is staring at a photograph of Bowie. The camera zooms in on her left eye. A blink, and now it's Bowie's left eye (with its permanently dilated pupil) the viewer sees as the camera pulls back.

* Happens several times in the song "Worthless" near the end of ''WesternAnimationTheBraveLittleToaster'', when they cut from the junkyard to the Master's house. At one point, the Car Crusher's blades turn into the TV, and another point a crushed cube turns into the TV again.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' has a number of match dissolves combined with a moving POV, which are obviously easier to achieve in CGI than in live action. Most notably, the "Broken Hallelujah" song is composed nearly entirely of MatchCuts bouncing back and forth between Shrek and Fiona.

* ''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.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'':
** In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'', toward the end of the song "Let's Have a Battle (of the Bands)", we see several students in a succession of {{Hard Cut}}s (Trixie, Thunderbass, Snips, Octavia, Watermelody, Normal Norman and Diamond Tiara), each in a position matching the preceding one, thus giving the impression of one continuous movement.

%% * 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.

* In the new employee training episode of ''HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw'' a shot of a helicopter faded into a shot of Phil Ken Sebben with a similarly shaped pipe in his mouth.
