Now instead of a terminology / semantics war

The OP asked for terminology so that's why I answered this :

By the way, does this technique have a name? Is there some word or term I can use to refer to it without giving examples or explaining in detail how the system is drawing a different part of the background?

On top of the "raster effect" being the intended result, in homebrew development, people usually refer to the act of changing scroll values on a specific scanline as "splits". Specifically, horizontal splits.

Split is when the scroll value brutally changes once. It's completely different than a wavy effect where it changes continuously.

Something that always gets on my nerves is when people see raster effects on the SNES, they think it's either "mode 7" or the "FX chip".

There seems to be this false myth out there that "the SNES can't do anything special without outside help", but then again, I think the opposite is also true where 3-4 parallax splits in an NES game make people think it's "almost 16-bit".
