** And then there's the episode where they bring in the {{Mafia}} and the {{Yakuza}}. A short Japanese man apparently does something awesome, but we never see what. We only heard a {{Kiai}} and the noise of several bodies colliding, and later we see the Yakuza doing crazy handsprings across the garden. Imagine the rest.
*** Lampshaded by the fact that Homer doesn't see what he does either, and is profoundly disappointed by that fact.

A short Japanese man apparently does Yakuza member simply stands in the middle of the brawl in a BadassArmFold, which makes Homer refuse to go inside the house and take shelter because he knows that the little guy must be about to do something awesome, but we never see what. We only heard awesome at any moment.

* GodzillaTheSeries intimates that Godzilla himself gets one in a BadFuture timeline in the episode ''Future Shock'', protecting what appears to be the last of humanity from a race of genetically engineered monsters called the Dragmas. By all accounts, he want down fighting, and took a few of the Dragmas with him. He's remembered as a hero in that timeline, complete with a memorial statue in honor of what ended up being his LastStand.

** In the season 1 finale Toffee's minions somehow capture Marco, who has beaten them effortlessly before. We will never know how Toffee did it.

* A mook battle sequence in the ''WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim'' episode "The Egg Beater" is interrupted by a newscaster announcing that costs of cartoons are skyrocketing and that [[LampshadeHanging producers are seeking substitutes for huge action sequences]]. The scene then cuts back to Jim, post-battle. A major battle where he fights ''all'' of his major villains, however, is shown immediately afterwards and in full.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' episode "Running With Scissors", Marco spends sixteen years in Hekapoo's dimension tracking her down. We don't see any of the things he did during that time, but he mentions things like fighting an army of wolf bears and jetskiing off a waterfall.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "Da Boom", one of the changes that happens when the Griffins and several other characters survive a nuclear apocalypse is that Joe has gone from being paralyzed to being fused into his driveway from the waist up. He then prepares to get into a fight with a giant mutated rat, and he apparently wins because he's shown alive and chiseled out of the ground later on.

* This trope is intentionally lampooned in ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' episode "Escape to the House of Mummies, Part II". The Venture family escape a deadly cultist trap in some ancient ruin but Dr Venture is the only one able to leave the pyramid. While he manages to go back home ("to get help") he forgets he's supposed to go back to get the rest of the family because he is distracted into making a bet with his neighbor (for bragging rights). Meanwhile, the abandoned heroes have somehow made it safely out of captivity and are now accompanied by the Perfect Man, UsefulNotes/{{Caligula}}, Creator/EdgarAllanPoe, a time-lapsed Brock Sampson duplicate and a friendly {{mummy}}. They are now ready to carry out the final and climactic ultimate badass battle against the Cult of Osiris...but then we simply cut back to the REAL story which is Dr Venture and his buddies talking about the bet and then going for some brews, oblivious that they had forgotten to do something.
