* Due to censorship laws in Japan, all pornographic videos produced there are required to pixellate visible male and female genitals and close-up views of sexual acts involving the genitals. This has become something of a trademark of the Japanese adult video industry.

* Occasionally, ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge'' would censor profanity with pixellation, but a black bar was used just as often. Naturally, this was parodied in [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/index.php?date=041201 this strip]], in which an entire dialogue box is censored. Note that it usually [[ClusterFBomb didn't shy away from that]].

* Used several times to cover up especially horrible violence in ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry''. This includes Fake!Kanon sticking his fingers into a gaping wound in his chest, six people [[CruelAndUnusualDeath having their stomachs ripped out and stuffed with candy]], and Rosa having her head impaled on a spiked fence. It's probably just a matter of time before they pull it out again; [[{{Gorn}} it's a bit of a violent show]].
** And the pixellation is removed in the DVD version.

* ''Series/TheOfficeUS'' uses this from time to time, which makes sense given its mockumentary style. But it's quite hilarious in the episode ''Benjamin Franklin'' when a few characters visit an adult bookstore and pretty much the ''entire'' backdrop behind them is pixellated.

* In ''Series/CanadasWorstDriver'', stop signs cover the mouths of the contestants when they swear (along with the accompanying bleep). Punk rocker Jakob and his nominator Stacy from season five got anarchy symbols instead. Blur is also applied to license plates on the contestants' cars and on brand names (labels on fast food containers, for instance).

* ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'' had an episode where prosecutor Tom [=DuBois=] had a nightmare about dropping the soap in the prison shower.

[[GagPenis The pixellation went down to floor]][[note]]It should be noted that this only applies to the TV version. The DVD version does not have that luxury[[/note]].

Used to blur out faces (of criminals, crime victims, and undercover police officers; people who didn't sign releases to allow a show to use their likeness), offensive body parts (mostly breasts on women, [[FlippingTheBird the middle finger when used as a rude gesture]], and anything below the waist on both sexes -- that includes front and back), obscene words and written messages (mostly on T-shirts, billboards, and signs), trademarked product names and logos which have not paid for placement (MTV does this a lot to their rap videos and on most of their reality shows, like ''TheRealWorld''), extremely graphic injuries (particularly the bloody stumps left behind when someone loses an arm or a leg or wide open head wounds), depictions of marijuana (be they the actual leaf or a rolled joint that's been lit and smoked), and even the years on closed-circuit date stamps (done a lot on reality shows that focus on police chases and crime, such as ''America's Dumbest Criminals'' or ''World's Wildest Police Chases'').

* In ''LightNovel/TateNoYuushaNoNariagari'' when [[spoiler:Motoyasu]] unlocks a combination of the Envy and Greed series of his weapon, Naofumi is confused as to why the blade is covered with a mosaic. He's also rather disturbed that it's then specifically aimed at Firo's lower body.
