* The PlayStation port of ''Quake II'' likely cleverly used rumble when particularly large enemies were walking. Better yet, it was in stereo.

* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. In "Alliances", Captain Janeway tries to arrange a PeaceConference between the Kazon and the Trabe. Suddenly the table starts vibrating, heralding the arrival of a BigDamnGunship which opens fire on everyone inside.

* Near the end of ''TheMist'', the whole ''Jeep'' bounces before the appearance of the [[spoiler:sky-scraper sized monster.]]
* The coach in ''ShaolinSoccer'' pauses to watch the water ripple in a cup on a trembling bench, to the sound of pounding in the distance. It's Mighty Steel Leg, repeatedly kicking a soccerball against a wall 50 meters away, hard enough to leave a deepening impact.

* ''ThreeHundred'' has this in the first battle, where the approaching Persian army is so massive that they ''shake the earth with their approach.''

* Reversed in ''Film/{{Hulk}}'' when it's used to show the monster leaving instead of approaching. Ripples are seen in a pool of water next to an unconscious Glenn Talbot as the Hulk leaps away in huge bounds after going on a rampage.

* ''{{Tremors}}''
** The first movie runs on this all the way long.
** Subverted delightfully in ''Tremors 2: Aftershocks'', with sheets of metal instead of water. As the movement gets more violent, and the heroes assume the monster just out of view has to be huge to be making it, so they point their guns higher and higher... until a little beast about half their size hops into view. What's even better is that the camera shot is set up so that the ''audience'' fully expects it as well, waiting for the giant inserted-by-special-effects monster to come lumbering around the corner of the building.

* Became a RunningGag on ''{{Tremors}}: The Series'', in that everyone would freeze in mid-argument and grab hold of anything breakable whenever El Blanco passed through town, making the ground vibrate. Soon as he'd passed by, conversations would resume as if nothing odd had happened. This even happened in the midst of a scene where someone was being ''held at gunpoint''.
