* VideoGame/BioShockInfinite ends in a similar way to the Mass Effect example above. The actions in the final scene coincide with the soundtrack, cutting to black with the final piano note. And by actions, I mean [[spoiler:every version of Elizabeth (one of the two main characters) in the multiverse [[RetGone disappearing from existence]] before the camera, smashing into black with the last one--the one you've grown to know throughout the game. [[TearJerker Did I mention Elizabeth just drowned her father]] [[HeroicSacrifice at his own request?]]]] Bio Shock is just that kind of franchise.

* One of these occurs after a BigLippedAlligatorMoment in ''{{Anime/REDLINE}}'' where a family drawn in [[ArtShift a completely different art style]] is seen watching TV for no reason. Cue smash cut to black for added audience disorientation.

* "WebAnimation/NoEvil" has this in "Black Bart" as part of Wrip's perspective when [[spoiler: Charles/Black Bart takes Xochipilli's ear covers, absorbing the [[SealedEvilInACan Black Tezcatlipoca]]. He promptly uses the new power on everyone nearby, Wrip included, causing a Smash To Black.]] We're then given a shot of her waking up, surrounded by the rest of the cast.

* Used hilariously to conclude the penultimate Season 2 episode of ''Series/{{Galavant}}''
--> '''Jester:''' (''singing'') Or will we leave all our viewers with pain and anger,\\
Just like we left them last year?\\
Could we just stop once again, on a huge cliffhanger—\\

* ''Series/TheLateLateShow'' did this with Craig Ferguson's final episode, referencing ''Series/{{Newhart}}'', ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'', ''Series/StElsewhere'', and getting cut off like ''The Sopranos'', music and all.

** The new James Corden version used this on a "Celebrity Noses" sketch (one where Corden can't get to Celebrity Noses because things keep going wrong) cut to black because the director told them they were out of time.
This list shows the last 10 events of 90. Show all.
