The Boomer attack artillery strikes in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''.''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', largely so the player can know to get to cover.

** 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.

* ''RockyAndBullwinkle'' "Banana Formula" story arc did an extensive one. Boris drops the "hush-and-boom" explosive vial over the heroes from a second story window and we hear a BombWhistle with a lowering pitch. Boris has enough time to catch the formula after realizing he'll be blown up too.
