* If you rewatch Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica, you will notice that Homura gets many reaction shots. Some of these are extreme closeups on her mouth. The shots don't make sense the first time you watch, because you don't know about Homura's backstory yet.

* During ''ComicBook/{{Siege}}'', the Void tears Ares in half '''vertically''' in a splash page. Below that, you see the horrified reactions of Avengers, Dark Avengers, and civilians.

* The final moments ''Film/TheyMightBeGiants''. George C. Scott (playing a man who thinks he's Sherlock Holmes) and Joanne Woodward (as his psychiatrist, Dr. Mildred Watson) are about to come face-to-face with what may or may not be a very real Professor Moriarty; the film ends with a ReactionShot from them as they apparently see Moriarty for the first time.

* In ''Film/ThePrincessDiaries'', Creator/AnneHathaway and JulieAndrews [[ThrowItIn improvised]] some of Mia's princess lessons. Cutaway reaction shots of the Queen's secretary Charlotte were so often used to break up the improvisations, that the credits give her full name as "Charlotte [[LampshadeHanging Kutaway]]".

** After King Joffrey informs Margaery Tyrell that he plans to put all homosexuals to death in "Dark Wings, Dark Words," her facial expression betrays her nervousness for a split second, as she is now worried for the safety of her gay brother.
** In "Second Sons," Loras lowers his head after King Joffrey chuckles at Tyrion Lannister for being too short to place a cloak over [[spoiler:Sansa's]] shoulders, unable to hide his exasperation over the boy-king's immaturity.
** When Tyrion tells Prince Oberyn Martell in "Two Swords" that he no longer partakes in whores because he's now married, Oberyn has a puzzled frown, as if to say, "Huh? What does marriage have to do with it?"
** In "The Lion and the Rose," after Joffrey makes a cruel comment to Sansa [[spoiler:Lannister]] about her [[spoiler:dead father]] at the wedding breakfast, Lord Mace Tyrell lowers his head in sadness; he plainly feels bad for the girl.

* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' based a well-known sketch around this, as Steve Martin led a group of yokels staring in befuddled awe at an unseen ''something''. Each in turn tries to guess at what it is, eventually falling back to "What the heck ''is'' that?"

* ''TheWeekenders'', "Pru": Pru shows the main characters a room for popular kids. We only see them peering into the room, but also hear them say that there's a tennis court and waterfall in there.
* This type of shot may be used to hide "unsuitable" content: in WB's short-lived ''WesternAnimation/RoadRovers'', many episodes featured shots of the Rovers reacting to Muzzle sicking some villains.

* In one episode of ''{{Reboot}}'', a game character is faced by a Binome in a trenchcoat. The Binome flashes the player (seen from over the Binome's shoulder), and a second after he opens the coat there's a wet, meaty ''thump'' of something hitting the ground. The player's eyes bulge in horror, he screams and runs away, and the Binome looks over his shoulder to wink at the camera.
* ''TheSimpsonsMovie'', after the [[FriendToAllLivingThings woodland creatures help Marge and Homer]] undress. Although nothing is heard or seen, the aghast expressions on their faces tell us more about the Simpsons' love life than we needed to know.

In it, Fuzzy marries his girlfriend Fluffy, and the film graphically shows what happens on the honeymoon. We only see the reaction of the students, who all shout "EW!", and Mrs. Krabapple, who snarks, "She's faking it."
* The second type occurs in ''[[TotalDramaIsland Total Drama Action]]''. In order to try on a special boot, Lindsay takes off her shoes and the camera immediately cuts to the other characters looking horrified, followed by dozens of big feet jokes, and Chris saying that the shoe ''only fits on one toe.''
