* ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl'': The author likes to do some every now and then (and since the story started in 2000, they are most welcomed), but especially when he wants to introduce a new act. Said recap episodes also became more serious after a while, such as the [[http://zebragirl.net/?date=2014-01-24 Recap introducing the Heaven on Earth arc]] (which takes place after the Subfusc one).



* ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'': "Orel's Movie Premiere" is a variaton: Orel screens some of his stop-motion films for several of the supporting characters (animated in the same style he's shown filming over the show's credits) which tell the events of the first 3 [[OutOfOrder (intended)]] episodes. While trying to tell the events in "Charity" he gets cut off by local bully Joe, who starts narrating his own story over it (which also refers to events from earlier episodes). Not clear if it's intentional, but this episode airs before [[WhamEpisode "Nature."]]

* Used in the ''Anime/KujibikiUnbalance'' episodes that come with the DVD of {{Genshiken}} so you can see clips from all the different episodes to get an idea of what [[ClicheStorm the series is like.]]

** ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' (and its ''Anime/{{Robotech}} adaptation) has two episodes which are constructed largely from clips of earlier episodes. The first is a basic, narrated clip show, but the second is a brilliantly-edited dream sequence in which events are replayed with different dialogue that radically changes their interpretation and reveals subtexts.

** ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' interestingly turns its recap episode into an important episode, by having the villains discuss the recent events and shed light on their evil schemes, as well as commenting on where they succeeded. Also, it looked pretty.
** The ''Frontier''/''Anime/Macross7'' crossover ''[=FB7=]'' was basically a recap ''movie'' for ''7'', but told through the viewpoint of ''Frontier''[='s=] cast.

* Both of the shows in the short-lived Marvel Action Heroes, ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFour'' and ''WesternAnimation/IronMan'', had this as their respective third-to-last episodes, "Hopelessly Impossible" and "Empowered". The former had the Impossible Man fleeing from the Super-Skrull and team-up with the Human Troch and Lockjaw as part of its framing device and the latter had the MODOK and the Mandarin use the latter's rings to learn about what's happened since the season premiere.

** Naturally, ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' mocked this in its own Recap Episode (Yes, a Recap Episode for an Abridged Series. [[RuleOfFunny Work with it]])
*** The video description on Youtube read "Did I just abridge my own series?"

* Anime/GirlsUndPanzer was forced to include ''two'' recap episodes in a ''12'' episodes series, because of TroubledProduction and ScheduleSlip galore caused delays in finishing episodes 6 and 11 in time.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'''s equivalent to "The Ember Island Players", Book Four's "Remembrances", is a more traditional clip show (though the final third is a great deal DenserAndWackier). It has the characters reflect and comment on romance, friendship, past mistakes and the villains they've faced. Like its predecessor, it's largely a BreatherEpisode and contains a great deal of [[SelfDeprecation self-deprecating humor]], much of which is a reflection of fandom opinions. This episode, however, was not according to the original plan - a highly unwelcome [[ScrewedByTheNetwork budget cut]] left the creators without almost an episode's worth of funds, and they were forced to either make do largely with existing footage or fire several members of their staff a few weeks early.

* ''{{Mahoromatic}}'' has a RecapEpisode in which the characters are all at a party, but the visuals are all from previous episodes (explained as being a video being played in some room at the party, apparently taken by a MagicalSecurityCam). Some of the dialogue is amusing (characters seeing events that they were not present for), though other parts simply use the original scenes' dialogue.
