* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'', King Jerard was holding auditions for a new court magician (to replace [[EvilAdvisor the one he threw in jail]] in a previous episode); the applicant shown (“the Amazing Manfred”) did this trick during his interview, but wasn’t able to put his assistant back together. Naturally, he didn’t get the job, and as he was kicked out, his angry – and still cut in two – assistant told him she was quitting.

* In ''VideOGame/MySims Agents'', if you send Beebee on the "The Prominence" mission, The Amazing Darryl wants to do this trick with her, and you can advise for or against it. Apparently, it tickles her.

* The 1982 ''Night of 100 Stars'' gave us an interesting spin on this trope. Doug Henning did this to ''two'' beautiful assistants (Florence Henderson and Priscilla Lopez) within the same segment. When it came time to put them back together again, Henning gave the ladies each other's bottom halves.

** There is another instance where the Pink Panther botches up the trick by himself. (E.g. seen in the trailer for the German edition)
* In one 1976 episode of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'', Shaggy and Scooby volunteered for one of these tricks after the magician offered them two free dinners.

* Invoked in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', where the Warners end up in Transylvania, which of course means an encounter with a vampire. Toward the end of the short, he's sealed himself in his coffin, and Wakko uses a ''[[ChainsawGood chainsaw]]'' to get him out. After Wakko cuts the coffin in half, the vampire's head pokes out of one half, and his feet from the other. Embarrassed, Wakko quickly slaps the halves back together.

* There are a few stage magicians who frame this trick as a kind of operation or surgery. One of these routines has it where the magician has to take some foreign object out of his assistant, so after he divides her in two, he removes the dividing blade and "roots around" inside her ribcage. At first he accidentally removes her "heart" briefly before quickly replacing it, and then he removes a noisemaking horn that somehow got stuck inside her, making her unable to stop 'honking' when she was talking to him before the trick began.

Sometimes, the second rectangular blade can get stuck and the magician will pull on the head of the assistant, causing the blade to fall. This is used as a joke on several occasions.

occasions. A few magicians who love their BlackComedy may have some 'unusual' embellishments to the act: The assistant may fake falling unconcious, shriek when the blades go through her, and on some rare occassions the blades they use have fake "bloodstains" on them when they are withdrawn from the boxes during the restoration.
