Having a character's butt be in front of camera after he/she sits on another character. The camera could have a P.O.V. Cam of the person about to be sat on and their butt obscures the camera. Or someone could just have a closeup of his butt. The Butts are like Camera Obscurer.
But not all the tropes that are going to be merged into the article are walk throughs. That's just one variant; the common thread is that the camera pans essentially into the body before cutting to something else, whether that something else is a completely different scene or the other side of the body.
I think Eat the Camera may be different because it's never used as a simple scene transition or wipe shot as the rest of these are - it's invariably used to place emphasis on something that character has just put in their mouth, usually on how disturbing or disgusting it is (or something else happening at the time is) because it's such an unnatural viewpoint.
Here's something else, Obscure Cut; it kind of combines all the tropes together because its basically a cut between scenes. It can mean someone putting their body in front of the camera until it's cut to a new scene, the other side of the body.
I don't think it's that different, because I've seen cartoons where a character's mouth fills the screen as they are running from something or as they're falling. And that's exactly what the other tropes are implying.

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
