A group of characters want to discuss something privately amongst themselves, so they form a huddle; the camera POV switches, looking directly upward at the characters' heads and torsos as they talk. This is incredibly common in sports movies, where it appears during "the strategic discussion during halftime". (And in (American) Football movies, it appears even more frequently).
This is also seen when a character is in bed, thrown onto his back, or in some other kind of upward-looking position; in this case, it's a POV Cam. It occurs frequently after a character has blacked out, leading to a suitable freak-out when he wakes up and sees loads of people staring down at him.
- Katekyo Hitman Reborn has this every now and then, most often before big battles. Normally, everyone except Ryouhei and Yamamoto are less than eager to do it, and tend to find it incredibly embarrassing.
- Somewhat used (but very dramatic) in the second match again the White Knights in Eyeshield 21. There's literally one second on the clock, and offense is just then switching to Devil Bats. An exhausted Monta catches the ball, and Hiruma calls for a huddle with himself, Monta, Taki, and Sena so that when they break, the White Knights won't know who has the ball.

- Eight Is Enough did it in the opening credits sequence, as the family plays touch football.
- That '70s Show had some of these in its "Stoner-wipes".
