* Pretty much every driving game until the fourth generation of games (16-bits) has them. One notable example is ''Top Gear 2'' for the [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]] and [[SegaGenesis Genesis]]; before every race, you are shown a scrolling view of its location, which is also used as backdrop for the race itself.

* Lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/VoltronForce'', when several characters are fleeing [[NInjaPirateZombieRobot zombie ninja scientists]] through a shopping mall which uses a wrap-around background. Larmina and Allura talk briefly about how they've been past these stores already; Lance claims that all malls have multiples of the same stores.

* Arguably occurs in the opening titles of ''Film/Speed''. The credits appear between the floors of a lift shaft as the camera descends many, many floors. The lift shaft is clearly a (well constructed) miniature, so it's likely the same footage, looped a number of times, masked by the large beam that obscures the view.

Occasionally Lampshaded in old WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes where the camera would zoom out and we see the characters running on a a treadmill powering the background causing the characters to jump of the treadmill and continue the chase.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', instead of copypasting, shares the background among as many adjacent panels as possible, even if the "camera" didn't move a bit. (At least for its first 200-and-odd strips.) It's most notable in the Starmetal arc (strips [http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0150.html #150] to #173), because the same 3 or so backgrounds are recycled over and over, but this trick is used cleverly at other points of the comic.

* While seemingly ruled out by newer observations, some astronomers suggested in the past the Universe could be smaller than the ''observable'' Universe, in which case what looked like distant galaxies would actually be close ones, images formed the light that has circumnavegated the Universe since its beginning. A hypothetical (intergalactic) traveller who went on in an Universe of this type would find again and again the same galaxies (albeit changed because of their evolution during the ages.)

** ''Franchise/TombRaider: The Last Revelation'' has a rare 3D variation of this when Lara is on a train. The poor draw distance that causes fog to appear helps disguise this trick.
