What are your guys Favorite Mode 7/Half Transparency effects in SNES/Arcade/Neo Geo/Sega Saturn/PS1 games?

And screenshots/videos are welcomed for this topic?

My favorites include The Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse 5th boss: https://youtu.be/dilvHbgrvo0?t=3m49s it is perfect for Music videos on YouTube when the boss rotates in circles, and you can use music such as this song when that time happens!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGR5fTO2oio

Blue Balls Boss 2 in Super Bonk 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYCCqOr1mRE it would be funny if someone made an SNES rom hack mod that replaces the boss with the famous Hudson Soft Bee, LOL!: https://ih1.redbubble.net/image.5548021 ... 5,f.u1.jpg

Astal on the Sega Saturn is pronominal on Mode 7/Half Transparency effects throughout, but you can see it on YouTube for details!

Here are a few that I really like on the SNES.

Almost every stage in Super Aleste has some cool wave or zoom effect in the background, but the moment when this boss warps in might be my favorite bit of Mode 7 on the SNES.

S.O.S. is entirely set on a capsizing ship rotated with Mode 7. It's a great example of technology being used for genuine innovation instead of gimmicks or eye candy.

The SNES Earthworm Jim doesn't play as well as the Genesis version, but its graphics are an impressive upgrade. Its neatest effect is probably the first level's transparency-based lens flare, which fades in and out very convincingly.
