** Then there's the lovely closeup of Denethor eating a tomato in ''Return of the King'' after he commands Pippin to sing him a song.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' gets these a few times:
** "A Bird in the Hoof" features a close up of the sickly bird Philomena's blood-shot eyes.
** "Green Isn't Your Color" has a brief shot of Rarity's pruny hoof.
** In "Secret of My Excess", Spike claims that he wouldn't wash the cheek on which Rarity kissed him. When it cuts to one week later, it turns out he ''meant it''.


* In the [[{{Defictiinalization}} defictionalized]] ''Film/{{Creepshow}}'' comic book, Nathan Graham comes back as a [[DemBones skeleton]] rather than a zombie. We get an EyedScreen after he strangles Bedelia that shows his skull is full of worms.

* This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7aRpzC3P3I commercial for the Wuv Luv dolls]] shows the toy ''giving birth'' close-up in great detail. It's actually pushing a plastic egg containing its' "baby" out of a pouch, but still, it [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything looks very much like actual birth]]...

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheABCsOfDeath'': In the "X" segment, the main character ravenously chows down on slop she takes out the fridge, with close shots of her mouth as she chews.

Added DiffLines:

*In the spoof film ''Film/EpicMovie'', the main character Peter is seduced by Mystique, a sexy shapeshifter who is portrayed by Carmen Electra, a very attractive woman who says she'll change into whatever he wants. His first few requests are quite nice, at first being [[BreastExpansion bigger breasts]] and a larger ass size, followed by the request of a badonkadonk...and then he takes the last request back for a Monobrow (or as he calls it, a "mamabrow"). We get a disturbing close up of her growing a monobrow which is already gross... and then he then follows it up with [[ChubbyChaser "Big Flabby Grandma Arms/Bingo Wings like a fat blue Britney Spears"]]...and we get a close up of her face after the transformation. She's incredibly fat and chubby, has yellow dotted eyes, is crosseyed, has a gross looking blue wart on her chin, has a noticeable hairline, and wiggles her tongue obviously turned on. It's followed by her falling on Peter, starting to get it on with him which [[SexyDiscretionShot thankfully fades to black...]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAddamsFamily1992'' episode "Ask Granny" features a grotesquely detailed close-up of Granny Frump puckering up her lips when she beats a wrestler by scaring him with the offer of a kiss.

{{Trope codifier}} is ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' as it was used extensively in the show, but the trope can be considered {{older than dirt}} in the sense that looking at something up close is bound to reveal its imperfections. Creator/JohnKricfalusi, the creator of ''Ren & Stimpy'' says he drew the inspiration from Fleischer ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} cartoons. The phenomenon spawned many copycats of both the Gross-Up Close-Ups, [[GrossoutShow the original show's disgustingly revolting aesthetics]] and the [[Creator/BobClampett revived]] DerangedAnimation. Currently, this trope can be spotted in a number of shows and usually leads to visual MemeticMutation.
