Vomit Indiscretion Shot

Go To
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.

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.

He recovers a little faster and has to change clothes before continuing, winning, and dying.
  • 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.
  • Shows up in Gintama numerous times. The fact that they try to censor it with Pixellation usually makes it more comical then gross.

  • 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.

    • in flashbacks to being kept as a slave of the 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.
  • 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.

  • 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".
  • Played for Laughs with Miki after she gets drunk in Life. The "camera" is to her back so you can barely see it, but you can clearly see a spray of liquid.
  • The second Rebuild of Evangelion movie has Shinji vomiting blood in the film's climax. It's that kind of movie.

  • 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.

  • This happens during the "eating contest" scene from Stand by Me during which a bullied teenager deliberately threw up in the grossest possible way to provoke a Vomit Chain Reaction.
  • Taken Up to Eleven with every person at the fair (except Junior, who started this whole mess due to making the ride's speed go out of control) during the Crazy Dance scene from Problem Child 2. When one got motion sick and barfed, the rest followed...

  • 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.
  • In Das Boot, the Captain finds Thomsen nearly passed out drunk and full of vomit in the bathroom.

  • 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.

Yuck.
  • Starship Troopers, as Carmen is dissecting a Bug in one of her first scenes. Given the film's subversiveness, this was probably done to turn the audience off to her and onto Dizzy, though.
  • A brief shot of Max in a hi-speed jet in Get Smart. He vomits into a bag, which then overflows all over his arm. He asks the pilot for another bag.
  • In Colombiana, a young Cataleya, having escaped the murder of her parents with the MacGuffin the killers sought, meets with an official in the U.S. embassy.

  • In the spoof film Epic Movie, the main characters decide to party before the big fight the next day.

  • In Star Rattler, Lillus flies her ship into a black hole after warning her friends that there might be slight turbulence. They emerge out safe, except everyone is sick off their ass. They compare what the motion sickness feels like, when Annis spews, which sets everyone else off. The best part? All the vomit is described, and it matches everyone's diets(as they are aliens and therefore all eat something different).
  • Several hours after the Battle of the Crapper in 1632, it suddenly hits Melissa Mailey that the refugees from the German army fully expected her to kill them. The effect this has on her digestive tract is not shied away from, and the result is a major component of her Character Development.

      Crichton: It's puke!?!?!?
    • The animatronic cast members have the most epic moments of vomit: in Self-Inflicted Wounds Part 1 Moya is knocked headlong into a wormhole following a collision with another ship, and as such, Moya's symbiotic pilot is in considerable pain. When D'argo and Stark actually ask him how he feels, Pilot opens his mouth to speak and instead spews a small ocean's worth of pea-soup vomit all over his console, Stark, and D'argo's shirt. The expression on poor Stark's vomit-splattered face has to be seen to be believed.
      D'argo: I had no idea he could do that.
      Stark: (revolted) I had no idea anyone could do that!
    • Rygel seems to be able to do it at will. In "Green Eyed Monster" Stark annoys him by refusing to leave Crichton, Aeryn, Crais and Talyn to die, so after being Bound and Gagged, the ever-charming Hynerian gets the Cloud Cuckoo Lander to pull out the gag, whereupon he spews a great wave of watery green vomit at Stark, not only soaking him from head to toe, but getting some in his mouth.
      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.

He actually swallowed far too many, causing him to projectile vomit fake blood.
  • Is there an episode of Jackass that doesn't feature Steve-O spewing his guts up?

    • Adam is fairly prone to seasickness, but for some reason still volunteered to be the one in the tank during the "can a vortex swallow up a ship?" myth, with predictable results.

    • Grant has had several of these, most (if not all) of them triggered by his nemesis: the spinning motion-sickness test chair. During a myth involving hangovers, it eventually reached a point where simply sitting in the chair with it turned off was enough to make him yack. Ivan Pavlov would be proud...sort of. (This only happened when he was already hung over and nauseous, though; in the control test and the final test, he endured thirty minutes—which was actually about 10 minutes longer than during the seasickness cure tests, the first myth to use the chair.)

  • In the episode of The Office (US) where Michael grills his foot, Dwight showers the rear window of his car with vomit after crashing into a pole during the cold opening.
  • Oz is a very mature show, so when people get sick we tend to see it. For example, Ryan has frequent bouts of nausea after receiving chemotherapy for his breast cancer.

  • Peep Show takes this to the logical extreme, and gives us the wonderful image of vomiting from the vomiters POV.
  • Political Animals: Doug's fiancee Anne is revealed to be bulimic when her mid-meal purge in the bathroom is shown in full.
  • Saturday Night Live:
  • In the pilot of Selfie, Eliza is sick into two vomit bags on a plane. However, while attempting to take them to the bathroom, they spill all over her in front of her cell phone camera wielding coworkers, making this a variation of the trope.
  • Sex and the City: Carrie throws up in the sink when she discovers Aiden's engagement ring. She finds it ugly and she's not very certain about their relationship. A reaction this strong surprises her.
  • Shameless: In "Liver, I Hardly Know Her", Fiona gets sick from partying the night before and vomits out of a car window while its in motion. The camera is mounted on the side of the car so as she pukes; it splatters on the lens.

  • Series 3 Episode 7 of Waterloo Road sees student Mika come into school after lunch, drunk on vodka. After a confrontation, she throws up over the headmistress's front.
  • In Whose Line Is It Anyway?, the game "Helping Hands" started out as merely acting out a scene with someone else's arms doing any gesticulation needed; then it was modified with a table of props for the other actor to handle blindly; and finally reaches Mk III with edible items added to the table. Colin Mochrie, usually as the hands, was apparently encouraged to stuff the edibles into the mouth of face-actor Ryan Stiles, and the act usually concludes with Ryan spitting up everything... into Colin's hands.

  • In Workaholics, this happens a couple of times. In the episode "We Be Ballin", Adam pukes after ingesting ipecac to prove he had a stomach of steel. He ends up throwing up right into the camera. Later, the gang gives the ipecac to two older douches at their house party to get them to leave. In the episode where Anders father comes and visits him, Ders is lying constantly to his father. While the two are sitting in a car at a dealership, Ders is possibly about to confess when his father cuts him off and says he's proud of Ders.

    Video Games 
  • Metal Slug 3:
    • Players face off against waves of zombies in Mission 2. Getting attacked by one of them while in human form turns you into a zombie that pukes highly destructive blood as its grenade attack.
    • In the hidden cave of the same level, zombies will form a cup with their hands, puke into it and then throw it at the player(s).
  • City of Heroes has zombie mooks who glory in spewing acidic, DoT-causing vomit. Conveniently enough, they're mostly encountered in the sewers.

The puke-o-rama is a reaction that the NPCs have to gruesome and outright mind-damaging sights like carcasses, splatterage, and the occasional roasted Thing-bits here and there. It's up to you as Blake to calm down their nerves by usually taking them away from where the offending sight for a breather.
  • Lying somewhere between this and the Vomit Discretion Shot, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption has Samus getting more and more corrupted by the radioactive Phazon as the game goes on. After some bosses die, they dump a load of liquid Phazon on her, driving the corruption forwards. The first time this happens she kneels on the ground and the camera cuts to a shot diagonally from behind and pulls back; we can clearly see Samus spewing up a pool of neon-blue liquid. The fact that she's puking up Phazon is a sign of just bad she is. Arguably, her not doing again is a worse sign as it shows just corrupted she is.
  • World of Warcraft characters vomit in a bright green stream accompanied by a rather disgusting noise. Since the game features fully positionable camera angles, you can get as close to (or as far away from) the action as you desire. Also, puking on players is a standard combat tactic of certain Undead units.
    • In the battle with Cho'gall, after you've gained enough stacks of Corruption, you will vomit on other players, damaging them.
    • In the Stormstout Brewery instance, in one room late in the dungeon, beer pours out and you can become drunk if it touches you. You can use a Relief Bucket, which turns you sober again after making you vomit.

  • When you finally take Zoda down in the final battle of StarTropics, he'll start puking right before he finally dies.
  • In Breath of Fire IV there's an incident where Fou-lu vomits copious amounts of blood. Admittedly, this is also because Fou-lu was at Ground Zero of a Fantastic Nuke detonation. A Fantastic Nuke powered by his GIRLFRIEND, as he finds out about five seconds after he's heaved his own spleen out his mouth. In the Bloodier and Gorier manga adaptation, this scene is included as well as a second scene of Fou-lu puking blood. Admittedly, this is because Fou-lu had just been Back Stabbed by The Emperor Soniel (not wanting to give up his seat to some mere King in the Mountain God-Emperor) with an Evil Weapon that eats souls.

  • This is actually the censored version of Ganondorf spitting out blood after his first defeat in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
  • In Dead Rising 2 , Chuck Greene can attempt to rescue a drunken showgirl... who will vomit repeatedly over the course of their conversation. People can vomit in this game but not the first one, even though you could technically get food poisoning. Chuck also gets terribly sick if he drinks three alcohol items in a row. This contributes to the difficulty of That One Boss at a certain point in the game, because the area that you have to fight in has no healing items on hand except for beer and margaritas.
  • This trope is also featured in Dead Rising 3 with a boss based on the sin of gluttony: an apparent competitive eater named Darlene who is confined to a mobility scooter, who uses her own projectile vomit as an attack.

    • Later in the game, Trevor vomits rather intensely after eating a bowl consisting of... something... that he found inside his fridge during the setup for the Paleto Score.
