"Wow", indeed.

"For those of you listening at home, the young constable has just thrown up into his helmet. This is the longest continuous vomit seen on Broadway since John Barrymore puked over Laertes in the second act of Hamlet, in 1941."
Narrator, Monty Python Live at City Center

Since the Vomit Discretion Shot is so common, there's nothing better to show off how edgy you are than show the act directly. The grosser, dirtier, and more nauseating, the better.

Comes in two, uh, flavors:

  • Juicy, continuous fluid, usually yellow or green.
  • Chunky, with stomach contents. Anything goes, but blue is still unlikely.

Often shown from a low angle for added impact. A writer with particular attention to detail will notice that, having thrown up, the wave of the smell of the stuff is liable to make you... keep on at it.

See also Vomit Chain Reaction. The distant brother of this trope is Waterfall Puke, which usually applies to anime. Zombie Puke Attack, by its nature, will involve this. Often used for a Stress Vomit shot.

    Advertising 
  • Microsoft saw fit to promote Internet Explorer 8's private browsing features with a commercial featuring a woman vomiting at the sight of a porn site. Her husband then immediately walks past and slips on it. Then she pukes on him. Repeatedly.note 
  • An OUYA advert tried to point out that modern gaming was too expensive, with a customer purchasing "Medal of Duty XIII" for $60, only to find it to be the same game as the last one. This results in him vomiting until he's knee deep in the stuff. He then pulls out his spine and beats himself over the end with it. Oddly enough a lot of people weren't fond of the advert. See it here.
  • One Mint advert had a man waking up after a rough night only to start to vomit up a dog, and we get to see it all in full view. This caused multiple people to feel ill and the advert was banned in the U.K and Republic of Ireland. See it here.
  • A commercial for the Atari Jaguar showed a kid puking at the camera after seeing footage of Cybermorph in action.

    Anime and Manga 
  • Attack on Titan:
  • Happens every so often in Berserk. Guts usually goes for a special juicy blood flavor, what with all of the internal damage he sustains.
  • In Black Butler, Ciel vomits many times, all of them for pretty good reasons:
    • After seeing the mutilated corpse of a woman killed by Jack the Ripper.
    • Due to asthma in the Circus of Fear arc.
    • After witnessing the "good doctor" sacrifice a child.
    • In flashbacks to being kept as a slave of cultists and beaten.
    • When force-fed medicine to heal him of the werewolves' curse.
  • The first episode of Black Lagoon shows Rock vomiting off the side of the ship. It starts on the vomit and pans up to reveal him leaning over the rail. It's not seasickness, by the way, but rather Rock's reaction to learning that his company has declared him dead and thrown him to the wolves.
  • Bleach:
    • Orihime Inoue falls victim to this in the fight with Numb Chandelier in Chapter 42, after NC forces her best friend Tatsuki to kick her in the stomach and she falls to her knees while throwing up. With through-the-fingers spray effect.
    • Nel Tu's "drool" has healing powers. When she runs dry, she tries tugging on her uvula to get more out and quickly learns it wasn't drool at all.
    • In the manga, Grimmjow kicks Loly so hard in the stomach that she throws up. The anime censored it by making him swat her away.
  • Happens in the Bokurano manga, where Ushiro vomits during his battle due to the accumulated stress; the enemy pilot has escaped and in order to win the battle and keep his Earth from being destroyed, he must kill everyone on that Earth until he kills the enemy pilot, at which point Ushiro and everyone on that Earth will die. He recovers a little faster and has to change clothes before continuing, winning, and dying.
  • Subverted in A Certain Scientific Railgun, where Misaka is kicked in the stomach by Mugino and would have puked, but doesn't due to not eating much for the last three days.

  • Parodied in DNA². Junta Momonari, who's allergic to women, vomits when he sees a girl without many clothes on. Since this is played for laughs, we see a chibi Junta puking his heart out and frequently all over the girl. It's even featured in the OP credits.
  • In the un-edited versions of Dragon Ball Z, Gohan kicks Cell in the stomach so hard he pukes up Android 18, along with lots of white fluid.
  • Played for Laughs in the very first episode of Excel Saga. "If you want me to strip down, I'll strip down; If you want me to throw up, I'll throw up!" This is actually a pun. Lord knows how, but apparently the Japanese phrase for "getting dressed" is the same as the phrase for "throwing up".
  • In Episode 20 of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Edward is overcome with nausea as he digs up the remains of the... thing the human transmutation resulted in. It sets the mood for the scene immediately, as the viewer now also feels nauseous.
  • Yukiteru once does this in Future Diary after being attacked.
  • In episode 10 of Fuuun Ishin Dai Shogun, Maika gets seasick and we see her throwing up multiple times... but the actual vomit is replaced by um... a sparkling stream of multicoloured glitter (complete with SFX). Yeah.
  • Happens rather frequently in Gantz when some of the more squeamish players witness the gruesome deaths of the others.
  • Ghost in the Shell has a memorable example of a man being violently sick in a toilet while repeating his Madness Mantra of, "Why do they want to eat?!" (Referring to full-cyberized humans eating "fake food").
  • Shows up in Gintama numerous times. The fact that they try to censor it with Pixellation usually makes it more comical then gross.
    • Kagura does this in the middle of the street in one episode, grossing everyone out with the stench. The OVA proudly touts the fact that she's the first Shounen Jump heroine to throw up (though she may have been predated by Orihime from Bleach).
    • It also happens with Shinpachi, in the Yoshiwara Arc, during the fight with Abuto. The latter exerts a great pressure on his stomach and the color leaves no place to doubt.
  • Higurashi: When They Cry:
    • Used in the manga version of Matsuribayashi-hen, when Miyoko Tanishi aka the future Big Bad Miyo Takano leaves the Orphanage of Fear and has a flashback of a Nausea Fuel-like punishment.
    • Twice during Tatarigoroshi-hen. The first occurs when Satoko has a massive breakdown after Keiichi pats her head, due to the trauma she has gone through due to her uncle's abuse. Another justified Vomit Shot comes when Keiichi discovers the disemboweled remains of Rika, the novel's case of Kill the Cutie.
  • In JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Vento Aureo, Doppio gets affected by Risotto's ability that fills his throat with iron and vomits out a handful of bloody razor blades.
  • In KonoSuba, Aqua pukes rainbows while Kazuma holds her hair after a night of hard drinking at the guild.

  • Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn:
    • In the second episode, Banagher throws up in his helmet and blacks out after he's defeated by Full Frontal and Angelo in mobile suit combat. (This probably should have drowned him, as we see it covers up his mouth and nose beneath the faceplate.)
    • Riddhe's Freak Out in episode 7 involves him throwing up to the point of dry heaves and sobbing uncontrollably, resulting in a lot of little globs floating around.
  • In episode 9 of My Love Story!! a man vomits on-screen. It's pixelated at least.

    • Akira throws up on herself and before passing out in the classroom when she first links with her shadow dragon Ensof, because she feels it plummeting from the sky at high speed.
    • Satomi also gets to feel the nasty side-effects of psychic links with Mons; when her shadow dragon Amapola gets cut up by an attack chopper's rotor blades, she vomits, loses consciousness, and wets herself.

  • Naruto:
    • Before the first test of the Chuunin Exams, Dosu's sonic attack causes Kabuto to double over and vomit. In the anime, he just gets nauseous/disoriented.
    • During their test in the Forest of Death, both Sasuke (after he and Sakura get paralyzed by Orochimaru's Killing Intent) and Rock Lee (during his fight with the Sound Ninja) visibly throw up. In the anime, they're both turned into Vomit Discretion Shots.
    • Naruto ends up throwing up when trying to use a Breath Weapon attack that is described as being a lot like vomiting and he gets the wrong idea. The actual vomiting happens between panels, but we do get a view of the vomit leaking out of his mouth.
    • Lee vomits during a flashback, in which he eats a disgusting herbal pill, but when Guy tells him that if he eats 100, he will be healed of his Game-Breaking Injury, he forces down 99 more, despite Guy saying that he doesn't have to do it in one sitting.
    • One chapter has Tsunade vomiting after drinking too much and not only is it clearly visible, it is the first thing we see when the narrative switches to her from somewhere else. The anime removes this, and skips that part of the scene.
  • During the final battle in One Piece Film: Z, Luffy gets hit so hard by one of Z's punches that he stumbles back and vomits.
  • This happens frequently in Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. It's usually pink. Episode 5-B is titled "Vomiting Point".

  • In Spirited Away, the monster No-Face eats and then later barfs up every single bit of food in the whole bathhouse, along with a few staff members, who are dirty and shocked but otherwise none the worse for the wear. Also downplayed in that it's not exactly vomit as he has no digestive system to speak of.
  • In the second half of the movie version of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, due to the stress of trying to gather enough Spiral Power to revert to the humanoid form of Chouginga Gurren Lagann, Simon pukes up blood.

    Asian Animation

    Hörni and Kalli: UUUÄÄÄÄÄRGL BLAAAAAAK
    Among the reasons for Werner to throw up are riding a BMW motorcycle, listening to Nina Hagen and seeing a German motorcycle cop dressed in green coveralls on the old white and green police bikes. In "Dieselterror" in Volle Latte!, riding humongous singles gets the better of Werner. He is so shaken that he feels he can't drink beer anymore. When he does, he immediately throws up several cubic meters of foam. And Werner merch once included a "La Kotze" badge showing Werner throwing up. That's right, you could sew a vomiting comic character onto your clothing.

  • For Meowth's Toon Dragon, author of "Payback from a Pipe" and several Pokemon and MLP stories, this is one of his biggest tropes. A particularly notable example is from "If You Can't Beat 'Em, Eat 'em", when after finding out what they had just eaten from Gilda trying to train them against Champagne's rigged foods, Applejack and Rainbow Dash projectile vomit from Sweet Apple Acres all the way into the surrounding trees. He has said that he does it as he doesn't like hiding from even the disgusting parts of life and that it's more a natural bodily function.

    Film — Animation 
  • In How to Train Your Dragon, a cautious Toothless decides to test a curious Hiccup by sharing a fish with him... after he has already eaten it. Riding a dragon is one thing, but having said dragon regurgitate half of a dead fish into your lap is quite another.
  • How to Train Your Dragon 2 kicks up the squick level when it shows another larger dragon regurgitating not just a single fish, but a whole slimy pile, this time for Toothless to eat... which he does. Thanks to advances in CG animation since the first film, we get to witness the entire scene in detail.
  • In the film Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi depicts herself violently projectile vomiting as she recalls how bad her ex-boyfriend's "literature" was.

    • Still in the same film, after being fueled with Werner and Andi's "Hüper-Metül", Bruno and Helmut's police microbus hurls out not only its engine (impressive because the early VW microbuses have rear engines) but even the two cops' pants.
    • In Werner - Gekotzt wird später! (the title itself even refers to vomiting), Werner and Andi fill a Japanese tourist with beer brewed at a Bavarian cloister which they distrust too much to try it themselves. The tourist immediately throws up, and Werner and Andi decide the beer is worth trying because the vomit smells "just like at home".

  • Audition has the creepy Yandere puke into a bowl off-screen... only for her to come back on screen with a steaming dog-dish of vomit, which she forces her mutilated ex-boyfriend to lap up. The worst part is that the vomit was real, at the actress's insistence.
  • Taken to a whole new extreme in Austrian exploitation comedy flick Auf bösem Boden (On Evil Grounds), where the film starts off with a first person shot of the protagonist vomiting - and by "first person", it means the camera takes the point of view of the puke itself, cutting its way from the stomach through the oesophagus and finally splashing onto the floor. Yuck.

  • Elysium: After Max suffers a lethal dose of radiation, his friend takes him inside to figure out what is wrong and help him. Right as Max walks in the door, he pukes on the table.
  • In the spoof film Epic Movie, the main characters decide to party before the big fight the next day. While Peter goes into a tent to have sex with Mystique, Lucy and Edward convince Susan to drink a little. She ends up chugging an entire keg. This leads to her puking all over two guys. Twice. In the unrated cut, she insists she's fine, before puking on another two guys. And again, twice. This already is very gross. She then locks lips with a Legolas-look-alike, presumably to continue puking in his mouth. This disgusts both of her siblings and leads to no one showing up the next day for the final battle.

  • David Cronenberg's remake The Fly (1986), because flies digest all their food externally. What does get the discretion shot, however, is Jeff Goldblum "reabsorbing" it. It gets increasingly hideous during the film's climax, when he melts a guy's hand and foot, and is about to go for the face before Gina Davis talks him down.
  • Four Rooms has Tim Roth throwing up over the sight (and smell) of a dead hooker. This gets extra funny points for being shot and flash-cut (in the style known from the "what did you do to our hostage" scene in From Dusk Till Dawn) by Robert Rodriguez and for coming completely out of nowhere.
  • The Gentlemen: After being poisoned by Mickey, Lord George rather graphically projectile vomits over the table. Multiple times.

  • Happens in The Hateful Eight, as O.B. and John Ruth do this after they drink poisoned coffee.
  • Hell of the Living Dead:
    • Max gives a (rather narmy) example upon discovering the child zombie.
    • Osborne gets a Foreign Queasine-induced example.
  • In The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, after the characters use the Improbability Drive for the second time, the result is a Puppet Permutation. Arthur vomits yarn.

  • Swedish film A Hole in My Heart has a scene with one character vomiting into the mouth of another.
  • In Holy Smoke, right after the main character discovers that her father isn't actually ill, she chunders into a trash can in extreme close-up. The fact that it's very obviously phony somehow doesn't make it any better. At all.
  • Hot Tub Time Machine: Jacob pukes on Lou when the Bellhop's arm gets ripped off by a passing snowplow. A particularly nasty one. For extra credit bonus points, it hits a squirrel.
  • In How High, Tuan lets loose a geyser of vomit while helping Silas beta-test his truth serum.
    Silas: I'm-a have to tweak this shit a little.
  • It: Chapter Two:

  • In Man of Steel, Kal is shown vomiting blood when his body negatively reacts to the atmosphere on Zod's ship.
  • The Matrix: Neo vomits from excessive mental strain and denial, after learning what the Matrix is and the condition of the real world. The vomit is real. Keanu Reeves had eaten some chicken that didn't agree with him earlier that day.
  • In Meet the Feebles, Harry tries to perform on stage despite being extremely sick, and ends up puking on stage.

      Stark: What have you eaten? [Rygel just looks satisfied as his wipes him mouth off and Stark struggles to keep his own gorge down] Oh! Oh! Ughugh-! Oh! I think I'm going to-
      Rygel: Waste funnel's in the back. [he smiles as Stark rushes off and the sound of him retching are heard] I love that trick.
