What is it called when a character (usually) is literally sees the attack coming to their face but are too slow to, or can't, respond. After that they character usually sees a flash of white or a series of colors and stars? In Gargoyles Episode 26 and 40, a bad character was tapped on the shoulder, and in first-person, we see Elisa Maza say her line, then throw a punch to their face. The bad guy say a red flash before falling on their backsides.

We need a section for LIVE ACTION "circling birdies" stuff. I know it happens in Flintstones, Space Jam, and George of the Jungle. At least, there should be a spot for movies or tv shows where the chirping birdies are heard, but not seen, when someone gets hurt.

I added a section for live action TV and a few examples that I recall. Feel free to add whatever you remember. Anyone can edit these things.
