* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lz-jFRuvA2o Le Ali Del Principio]] from ''BatenKaitos Origins''. Notable for being used in not only the end credits, but the incredibly well-done Heart-to-Heart scene and the TrueFinalBoss, yet somehow NOT being an example of SoundtrackDissonance.

* ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Furious 7]]'' has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgKAFK5djSk See You Again]] by Wiz Khalifa.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eDhPXHPjfM Open My Eyes]], the ending theme of ''Anime/PokemonDiancieAndTheCocoonOfDestruction''. The song has the theme of letting go of one's fears and opening up to the world, with the second half being a beautiful melody.

* ''Videogame/{{Undertale}}'' has the piece titled "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBhFHJMVfiI Undertale]]", which is played when [[spoiler:the player is told the story of Asriel and the first human]]. Despite being an instrumental, it contains multiple criteria of an award bait song; it starts of mellow, gradually builds up, contains a {{modulation}} in the middle, and is used in a TearJerker context.
