* In ''[[SixTeen 6teen]]'' Jen gets a makeover and stuns the crowd. Darth involuntarily activates his lightsabre.
* In the ''{{Talkartoons}}'' short "Dizzy Dishes", as Bimbo gazes over a prototype BettyBoop, his dickey springs out of his tuxedo.

A type of ParentalBonus, Something Else Also Rises is a [[StockVisualMetaphors visual shorthand euphemism]] for an orgasm, an erection, or ejaculation. One can't come right out and say it -- no pun intended -- so there's a visual placed into the scene as an intentional DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything. This trope is a holdover from when it was still considered risque to show a man and a woman in the same bed (even if they were married). Filmmakers and animators found a way to [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar get around]] the MoralGuardians, and still use it to this day, though these days, it's mostly for comedy reasons. Sometimes, you'll see this trope used to slyly reference sex and sexual arousal in cases of media that's geared towards younger or more conservative audiences, but, thanks to movies, TV shows, books, etc. being more open to reference sex now than back in the days of strict censorship boards, expect to see this as a ComedyTrope.

There ''is'' a female variation of this trope, too, although much rarer than the male version outside of more explicit material. While the male version is common, the female version is usually either not as explicit and [[FreudWasRight heavily veiled in metaphors]] (like flowers opening or a waterfall), or the opposite: [[MostWritersAreMale the scene is a lot more obviously sexually charged]] although no actual sex is shown. LustfulMelt is more often used as the female counterpart to Something Else Also Rises, though LustfulMelt can also be used for men (usually as a joke. See the actual LustfulMelt trope page for more information).

ComedyTrope, or in more kid- and family-friendly fare that doesn't want to openly reference sexual matters, but does want to [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar get crap past the radar]] to prove a point or for narrative reasons.

* This developed a visual gag in the older British satirical comedy show, ''Series/ThatWasTheWeekThatWas'' (TW3). Sometime around 1962, comedian Willie Rushton was seen getting into bed with an impossibly glamorous actress/model type. Amid giggling and sighing, foreplay ensues. The camera then cuts to stock footage of waves crashing against rocks, tall chimneys falling, train going into tunnels, et c. We cut back to Willie Rushton and girl, who are still in bed - but soaked through from the waves, covered in brick dust and rubble from the chimney, and smothered in soot from the steam-train. She is screaming. He is wide-eyed with panic.

* Happens quite often in ''Series/{{Coupling}}''. The most amusing is early in the first series when Steve and Susan first [[UnusualEuphemism knock boots]]. [[ItMakesSenseInContext We are treated to a scene]] of [[HaveIGotNewsForYou Angus Deayton]] and [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave Mariella Frostrup]] happening across one another in the halls of Creator/TheBBC. He's holding a can of generic fizzy pop (this being Creator/TheBBC, no ProductPlacement here) which spurts everywhere as he opens it mid-conversation. He apologises and stammers about how that's never happened before. She tells him that "It's OK, it happens to a lot of guys."

* In ''FanFic/TheVow'', when Shen is in an intimate connection with Lianne - like when [[ShowSomeLeg she's pressing her back against his chest to free herself from his hold]], or during their FirstKiss -, he has to fight his body's urge to spread out his train (as he's a peacock) and give a loud cry.
