* Scott Adams sometimes illustrates wild takes in ''{{ComicStrip/Dilbert}}''. One particular 1996 strip had the PointyHairedBoss informing the main characters that the company had just been bought out by their rival. When he mentions that the new company already has engineers who are doing the same jobs as their department for less pay (which he thinks is supposed to reassure them that they won't get laid-off), the panicked reactions of the cast to that news include Alice's hair jumping off her head, Wally's skull flying out of his mouth, and Dilbert's head [[Film/TheExorcist spinning in circles]].
* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' has some wild takes from the title characters, particularly in one SundayStrip where Calvin manages to sneak up on Hobbes from behind when he comes home (only to get mauled by tiger anyway).

** [[spoiler:[[UpToEleven This trope is even made a ''plot point'' in this series,]] when Usopp's agonized expression after eating a [[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce Tatabasco ball]] actually knocks out the linchpin to [[TheChessmaster Doflamingo's]] entire plan for keeping control over Dressrosa. ''And then he '''[[Awesome/OnePiece weaponizes]]''' it!'']]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo'' had some wonderful examples, usually as the gang's reaction to the MonsterOfTheWeek.

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' and [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 its sequel]] are pretty light on the {{Wild Take}}s outside of {{Gonk}} characters like Yamada and Hanamura, but Souda in the second game manages one when she hears [[GenkiGirl Ibuki]] sing for the first time, and discovers that her music of choice is death metal, resulting in a shocked face in a ''[[ArtShift completely different art style]]''.

* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' did this at times, which is actually extremely unusual for a Disney cartoon.

* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' did this at times, which is actually extremely unusual for a Disney cartoon. Also, whenever a Disney series was animated by Glen Kennedy's team, they would give the characters blink-it-or-miss-it wild takes which were quite extreme compared to how quick they went by.

* The Urpneys engaged in these frequently in ''TheDreamstone'' (Urpgor in particular would often pull multiple elaborate ones in a single casual sentence). The heroes were usually animated ''far'' more tamely, [[NotSoAboveItAll though weren't void of them completely]] (eg. their MassOhCrap in "The Dream Beam Invasion" or Amberley's in "Wildit's Whistle").

* Creator/TexAvery largely [[TropeCodifier codified this trope]]. The short ''WesternAnimation/RedHotRidingHood'' is the likely codifier, but WesternAnimation/NorthwestHoundedPolice is more imaginative, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FHTXOFawgA as seen here]].
