Mostly an Anime trope. A show's rather low animation budget rears it's ugly head during it's action sequences. This isn't an Inaction Sequence by any means. Blows exchanged by two forces fighting (or dramatic stuff that happens) mostly consist of zooming, scrolling or sometimes even stationary still frames. And most of them aren't even Pastel Chalked Freeze Frames.

Examples:

  • The Berserk anime loved this. Notably during Guts' first fight with Griffith. Although you hear the shuffling of swords, neither Guts nor Griffith move during some of these shots.
  • Demon Lord Dante as well.
