* While the sound effect isn't rendered for the reader evidently Moloch can hear the falling C-Gas canisters before they hit in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', he's not sure what type of bomb is falling towards his position until he can actually see them.

* In the "Cabin Fever" episode of WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife, Mr. Bighead "helped" Rocko and Heffer by making the head (of course). Mr. Bighead tries to ruin their fun by making the head into a huge snowball which he pushes down the nearby mountain. In SelfDisposingVillain style, the snowball rolls past the boys, up the adjacent mountain's curve, which launches it into the air above Mr. Bighead. He stares at it while it creates a ShadowOfImpendingDoom complimented with a BombWhistle.

The Boomer attack artillery strikes in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''.''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', largely so the player can know to get to cover. Additionally Tiny Tots Mini Nukes launched by a Fat Man have a distinct whine to them, similar to Boomer artillery, which is why they have a face of a tiny tot screaming on them.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', the Fat Man's mini-nukes have a bomb whistle sound. If you hear one that wasn't launched by you, chances are great that YouAreAlreadyDead, unless by the grace of the RandomNumberGod it misses your hitbox and passes harmlessly through your arm.
