* In the original series of the ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'', the title characters or someone else would demolish Limburger Plaza at the end of pretty much every episode. Got some variants, such as the episodes where Limburger is running his scheme from somewhere else (and ''that'' gets demolished instead), the episode where Limburger Plaza got demolished ''at the start'' of the episode (that consisted of Limburger rebuilding it only to have it demolished again at the end), and [[GrandFinale "Once Upon a Time on Mars"]], in which [[UpToEleven they decide to end the series with a bang]] and demolish the palace of lord Stilton (Limburger boss when he was on Mars) in the flashback part and, in the present sequence, Limburger Plaza, Stilton's rebuilt palace on Mars and lord Camembert ([[GreaterScopeVillain the supreme leader of the Plutarkians]]) ''with the same attack'' (and they didn't even do on purpose).
* In ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug": Numerous, and sometimes more than once. Opening shot of Eiffel Tower, Bad guy's butterfly scene, Marinette's transformation, Chat Noir's transformation (Occasionally skipped), Ladybug confused by magic item, Magical reset, Next time Gadget, next time!

The exception is the short where [[MyFutureSelfAndMe Danny meets himself from the future]], where Future Danny's newer Robocarp is hit by AIIsACrapshoot and the original Robocarp actually does solve the problem.
