* Played straight in Jean Cocteau's ''[[Film/BeautyAndTheBeast La Belle et la Bête]]'' when the Beast is transformed into a handsome Prince. Done by having the actor fall backwards and reversing the film, of course.

* Rare heroic, non-vampiric example: when a party member is revived with a Zing or Kazing spell in ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'', they levitate to a standing position in this manner, head and limbs hanging limp until they are almost completely upright, before opening their eyes and assuming their normal battle posture.
