* The CBS daytime version of ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'', not surprisingly, has one of the most recognizable examples: the "clang clang clang / whoop, Whoop, WHOOOOOOP" that is played whenever a contestant wins a large cash prize or both Showcases (or ''the'' Showcase, in the Davidson version). Recycled in a sped-up form for car wins on the 1980s versions of ''Series/CardSharks''.

A series of sirens, bells and/or whistles heard on some {{game show}}s whenever a contestant has won big (at the BonusRound, generally). These are sometimes accompanied by a ConfettiDrop, although they have mysteriously been averted by the current big-money shows such as ''WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire'' and [[WhoWantsToBeWhoWantsToBeAMillionaire its clones]].

* The game show version of The Perils of Penelope Pitstop uses the exact same sirens from ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' when a team successfully rescues Penelope & puts H.C. in jail. ** The original 1996 version did not use any sirens at all.

* Bonus wins on ''RemoteControl'' were heralded with alternating burglar alarm sirens. Inverted if the player ''lost'' the BonusRound, as one of the sirens was used as the buzzer when time expired.
