* ''TopGear'': Split-Screen Optional. Not censorship, rather an anti-boredom device:

* ''TopGear'': ''Series/TopGear'': Split-Screen Optional. Not censorship, rather an anti-boredom device:



* Repeatedly on ''HaveIGotNewsForYou'', of the "we're being censored" variety.
* Happens a lot on ''EverybodyHatesChris''. Usually it is just when Chris is about to do something bad. One example was when Chris was handed a bag of marijuana by a criminal trying to escape the police. His friend Greg suggest they smoke it. A screen then comes up and says that Chris Rock does not endorse the smoking of pot. He instead decides to put it in lasagna.

* Used several times in the ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents'' series. This is in keeping with the author's persona of reviling the stories he has to write, but appreciating the truth enough to say it anyway. That being said, after avoiding the topic, it's usually written about anyway. Often the narrator keeps talking, but he urges the reader to stop reading.

* This happens more due to the lack of budget and no post-production than actual Relax-O-Vision in ''Film/{{Dogma}}'', in a part cut from a scene, where Azrael shows Bethany exactly what hell's like now that human imagination has made it even worse. A title card is then flashed on the screen: [ten seconds of the most fucked-up imagery to ever be shown in cinema] before cutting back to Azrael hissing, "I'd rather die than go back to that."

** One version of the ''Anime/PuniPuniPoemi'' '''trailer''' ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2bUi7AYeKE available here]]) opened with a short message that they removed ''anything'' offensive to ''anyone'' so that it could reach "the widest possible audience". The result? A black screen. Remove anything offensive to "most people"? Another black screen. Remove "anything that might get us sued"? We finally get the trailer, with black screens with funny text replacing some scenes. This entire affair is made very funny when you remember that this version appeared on a ''Milk-chan'' DVD! The uncensored version, by the way, is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYupPX1--eQ available here]].

* ''EdnaAndHarveyHarveysNewEyes'' reflects Lilli's inability to comprehend death by covering dead bodies in pink paint, applied by little potato-shaped gnomes that only she can see. It's generally a thin enough layer to get a good idea of what's just happened, but she never has an option to interact directly with it, and displays absolutely no curiosity about it. (The paint stops appearing later on in the game when the protagonist's illusions begin to break.)

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' episode "Alzheimer's That Ends Well", Wooldoor covers Clara's genitalia with himself, explaining that they cannot show it because of the [[MediaWatchdog FCC]]. When he proceeds to explain what FCC stands for, his mouth is {{pixel|lation}}ated and his words are [[SoundEffectBleep beeped out]].

* ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'': Nyamo's drunken sex ed lesson is overlaid with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5WC8UKM0ZI&feature=related relaxing music]] and uplifting visuals, such as windchimes, a paper lamp, and the earth with the sun rising in the north, occasionally cutting to the students' [[strike:embarrassed]] enthralled faces. An EyeCatch featuring Chiyo and Tadakichi is used as a VomitDiscretionShot earlier in the series when a drunken Yukari pukes in the street.

* Used by [[StrawmanNewsMedia WNN]] in ''WesternAnimation/CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs''. Head anchor Patrick cuts from Sam reporting on the spaghetti twister to a shot of a playful puppy over scrolling weather forcasts, not due to any technical difficulties, but due to her recently reembraced nerd style.

* ''Film/GeorgeOfTheJungle'' does this several times. When an extra falls off a bridge suspended several hundred metres over a canyon or [[spoiler: George is shot by the BigBad]] the narrator quickly interjects with the line, "Whew! Let's all calm down, now. Don't worry, kids, nobody dies in this film, they just get really big boo-boos," before moving to the next scene showing the victim covered in dozens of bandages and casts.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'''s portrayal of Mohammed ordering food at a stand was censored by ComedyCentral. After much kerfuffle, Comedy Central replaced it with Relax-O-Vision, allowing Matt and Trey to describe the scene and express their feelings about the censorship. (Oddly enough, ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' had showed Mohammed previously without having censorship problems.)
