* Spoofed in ''WesternAnimation/MoonbeamCity'' with DaChief of police Pizzazz Miller, who gets shaded like she's watching from behind Venetian blinds everytime she gets particularly intense.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' gives the player a fine balance between blatant and ambiguous in cutscene transitioning the first act of the game into the second, when BigBad - Lynx uses the MacGuffin on protagonist, Serge, and after an initial apparent headache, Serge stops thrashing and seemingly peacefully arises, whatever whammy involved clearly passed... except right before the a screenplay ends, Serges’ eye expression changes rapidly quickly accenting his unchanged smile from peaceful to sinister. First time through it is highly uncertain what has just happened, but clearly something has happened. [[spoiler: When the player regains control and Lynx starts responding to controls instead of “Serge”, it is horrifically apparent [[FreakyFridayFlip what has just happened. ]]]]
