Added DiffLines:

* Any scene with the [[BambooTechnology bamboo car]] on ''Series/GilligansIsland'' was conspicuously undercranked, likely to avoid damaging the scenery.

Added DiffLines:

* Some of the monsters in ''VideoGame/{{Unloved}}'' can use "Demon Speed" to rush into your face from the other side of a room in an instant. Rather than leaping or flying, they use their normal movement animations played at ''extremely'' high speed, creating an effect similar to undercrank.

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

* In the first two ''Film/MadMax'' [[Film/MadMax2TheRoadWarrior 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.

* Used very subtly on the first person viewshots (to the point of near-unnoticeability) during parts of the famous chase scene in ''TheFrenchConnection''.

* The backgrounds of the speeder bike race on Endor in ''ReturnOfTheJedi'' are the result of an undercranked camera and a Steadicam.

* For his FilmOfTheBook ''Film/{{Firefox}}'', Creator/ClintEastwood hired the same special-effects man, John Dykstra, to do the supersonic nap-of-the-earth fighter-jet chase footage as George Lucas hired to do the Endor speeder-bike sequence mentioned above. In the behind-the-scenes featurette, Dykstra said it was quite a struggle to find a place with enough land to do the sequence because like in ''ReturnOfTheJedi'', the camera was being cranked at 1 frame per second, '''on a Learjet'''

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'' [[ParodiesOfFire 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).
