* Iris in ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8824619/1/Through-the-Years Through the years]]'' is scary [[BewareTheNiceOnes when she's pissed of]]. She got mad once [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend at someone who was being rude to her boyfriend]]. Exacly ''what'' did she do to poor guy [[NothingIsScarier is never stated]], but it worked and guy never bothered him again.

* ''Film/CatPeople'' is famous for suggesting the threatening creatures by reaction, sound, and shadows, rather than showing them. This may partly be due to its minimal budget (less than $150,000 in 1942).

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/YogisTreasureHunt'' has the treasure hunters in a locked room filling with water, which then fades to the show's commercial spot. When the episode resumes, the crew is on top of the roof, safe and sound. Huckleberry Hound tells the viewers we'd have seen quite a rescue if not for the commercial. Lampshaded by Snooper: "Yeah. Take Huck's word for it. It was a doozy!"

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': In the ''Dragonborn'' {{DLC}}, arch-wizard Neloth asks the player to help test a spell so he can study an [[MagiBabble eighth order of silence]]; however, the spell misfires and turns the player's eyeballs (and possibly their tongue) into writhing tentacles, which is so horrific that Neloth's apprentice [[VomitDiscretionShot pukes in the corner]]. Naturally, since the player's eyes are missing, you don't actually get to see any of this (and switching to a third-person perspective doesn't help, either).

* Then there is the "Venus Butterfly", a sexual technique described in the ''Series/LALaw'' episode of the same name. The technique is never described on-screen, although it is described to the character Stuart Markowitz, who tries it on his girlfriend, Ann Kelsey, and finds it is as irresistible as advertised. Although the writers made a point of ''not'' describing the technique, that didn't stop people from trying to figure it out (possibly in an effort to get useful tips in bed, whether or not it was the "Venus Butterfly"). Most notably, ''Magazine/{{Playboy}}'' had a contest on its letters page, which lasted for months, for the best unnamed technique to which the term could be applied. The eventual winner was a combination of cunnilingus and vaginal and rectal stimulation with the fingers. Perhaps intentionally as a nod to the '80s series, that was the definition given nearly two decades later on an episode of ''RescueMe'' in 2004. In 2006, 20 years exactly after the fictional sexual technique was first described, an entire book entitled ''One Hour Orgasm: How to Learn the Amazing "Venus Butterfly" Technique'' was published describing in detail the technique eventually chosen by the editors of ''Playboy''.

* In ''{{Persona 3}}'', [[ElegantGothicLolita Chidori]] is supposedly an astonishingly good artist, eliciting surprised reactions from her peers and seniors. Even when one of her sketches becomes vital to the characterization, we only ever see her sketchbook from the ''back''. (One of the [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] sourcebooks shows her sketch of [[spoiler:Junpei]]. It ''is'' quite good.)

* Spellbooks in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' are very dull and wordy. They seem to take on average 20 to 30 pages to describe a spell, and it's not like they spend all that time describing every possible interaction with other spells. It's just a simple description that rambles on and on. According to the author, we'll never see an excerpt longer than two or three words because he simply cannot write something so unreadable.
-->'''Elliot:''' I swear this thing makes up words to pad its length.

* In the [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck]] story ''The Treasury of Croesus'' by Creator/DonRosa, the first page shows the end of "Magica de Spell's most complex and bizarre scheme yet". The only things shown include magical explosions and foam coming out the windows of the money bin, a pig in a GrouchoMarx disguise, a lizard with its tail tied to the tail of a vulture with a party hat... and Magica, wearing a [[HornyVikings viking helmet]], an apron, a thick glove on one hand, carrying a thin wooden mallet in the other, an ice skate on one foot and a roller skate on the other, shouting "Curses! Foiled Again!"

* Whatever Samara[=/=]Sadako does[=/=]shows to her victims to leave them looking [[NightmareFace like that]] in ''Film/TheRing'' and ''Ringu''. One of the milder instances occurs in ''TheRing 2'', where a Samara-possessed Aidan apparently psychically shows a child psychiatrist ''something'' that makes her commit suicide by air embolism.

** In another episode, Peter is trying to help [[TheGrimReaper Death]] get a date. Peter assures Death that he's not as ugly as he thinks, pulls down Death's hood and screams before pulling it back up. We don't see Death's actual face, [[{{Squick}} but we do see insects scuttling around his skull]]
