* ''Series/MyFavoriteMartian'' had a few of these moments, too, especially when [[AlienAmongUs Uncle Martin]] and Tim were trying to hide something from the nosy neighbor/air-headed landlady [[Cloudcukoolander Mrs. Brown]], or worse, [[PoliceAreUseless Detective]] [[Jerkass Brennan]].

* In the first two Mad Max films, many actions scenes are sped up massively to make the cars appear to be driving faster.

The fourth movie, ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', is a nearly non-stop, two-hour long car chase, and over half the movie is either undercranked or overcranked to a degree.

Generally, the frame rate isn't lowered to less than 21 frames per second, as anything beyond this makes the effect too glaring. More extreme undercranking tends to be used for supernatural characters (to emphasise their unnatural speed), or comedic effect (because it's easy to make it look [[RuleOfFunny funny]]). As with overcranking and the ''ChariotsOfFire'' theme, if someone's running, [[StandardSnippet expect to hear]] "[[Series/TheBennyHillShow Yakety Sax]]" either onscreen (if it's a comedy) or in your head (if it's not).

* A CGI equivalent was used in the trailer for a ''Warhammer'' videogame. During a battle, there's a brief glimpse of an elf fighting an ork. While the motion of everything else appears realistic for the size of what's moving, the elf's movements are animated so he is wielding his swords inhumanly fast to show he ''isn't'' human.
