** Arcs which are really great for animation are the Immortal's Arc where we get ''movie quality'' animation for the final fight with the immortal duo, as well as the Hunt for Itachi arc where both Jiraiya and Itachi's final living arc with both their deaths and their final fights getting excellent animation. However, after that the people at Studio Pierrot had a change of leadership or something, since quality...dropped, even for crucial arcs like the Invasion of Pain (which was barely passable). It became joked by Naruto fans that Studio Pierrot only cares about Sasuke which gives his arcs the best animation...at least until Sasuke and Kakashi's skirmish which a ''flash animator'' did far better. The aforementioned Birth of Naruto mini-Arc did have movie quality animation, shame that Naruto vs Kurama (Kyubi) couldn't have the same treatment despite how crucial it was. [[spoiler: However, the best animation in the War Arc was episode 322, when Madara Uchiha is reincarnated as an Edo Tensei. Movie quality animation, minus a few glitches, as well as movie quality art.]]

* The first season finale of ''{{Life}}'' shows main character Charlie Crews driving down a street in LA, when he's suddenly rammed from the side, making his car flip over. The scene is shot in a "you are there" style which is amazingly visceral.

* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'':
** The Super Saiyan God ritual. It puts the movie version ''to shame''.
** [[spoiler: Freeza blowing up the Earth, combined with the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome music]] is a chilling combination of horrifying and breathtakingly awesome.]]
** [[spoiler: The double auras for the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan/Kaioken combo is amazing. Instead of merging the auras to create a purple hue like many expected, the red aura of the Kaioken is stacked onto the blue godly aura of Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, creating an effect not seen in the entire franchise. The epic Kamehameha that Goku uses on Hit while using this combination is also a sight]].

* If one had to single out the ''sole'' favorable aspect of the [[SoOkayItsAverage so-so]] ''HeroFactory'' animated show, then it would probably be the CGI. Sure the backgrounds can seem a bit empty, and early crowd scenes offered ''some'' interesting sights (like Von Ness, a character that canonically didn't exist anymore appearing suddenly), but they're ironing these out with every new episode. And they have plenty of time for improving, seeing as there are only a couple of episodes released every year.

** But perhaps the greatest of all is "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7PQ9IO-7fU Lullaby for a Princess]]", a fan video produced over the course of ''two years'' showcasing Luna's transformation into Nightmare Moon and ultimate defeat by her sister. The visual effects are absolutely '''stunning''', surpassing the quality of the show itself at several points; most notable is probably the battle in front of the eclipsed sun, which you would swear was the climax of a professional big-budget animated movie.

* The special effects in Series/KamenRiderExAid are very well done, beautifully complementing it's retro video gaming themes.

** After SpecialEffectsFailure caused the Hatbox Ghost to be removed from the Haunted Mansion before the ride even opened, they actually got the illusuion to work when he returned in 2015.

* [[Creator/ThisIsIt Don't Hug Me, I'm Scared.]] Each episode just looks better and better than the last (save for the "digital world" in Epsiode 4, though this is StylisticSuck), with increasingly better puppet effects and tons of MediumBlending. The mixture of puppets, realistic props, 2D and stop motion animation, and CGI makes for some great SceneryGorn.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'' apes the StylisticSuck look of [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark the show]] for the most part, but the sequence where [[TheyKilledKennyAgain Kenny dies]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZusf9_Bjx0 goes to hell]] is incredibly well done, successfully blending Kenny's crude look with unsettling 3D graphics.

* Among the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fan-artists:
** [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaVf-df5Fm9U5ooS-UF7TOg Duo Cartoonist]] deserves accolade for their [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jW5n3k2VgZE "Children of the Night"]] animated music video alone. The animation is very well choreographed and reaches quality of the original show.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/user/jananimationstudios JanAnimations]]'s animated shorts are comparable in quality to the original show as well. Check out the "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1NEtnClzzM Don't Mine at Night]]" music video for a good example. (Unfortunately, most of his pony videos, such as [[WebAnimation/ButtonsAdventures the ones with Button Mash]], fell prey to cease & desist takedowns; but you can find mirrors around the internet, e.g. [[https://www.youtube.com/user/ZIK9999/videos here]].)
