* Kyon and Haruhi of ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' uploaded a symbol made by Haruhi onto their website... which just happened to magnify data in such a way to bring into our reality a long-dormant "digital cave cricket" that infects the minds of those who looked at the image file. He disarms it by changing the "SOS" logo into a [[SdrawkcabName "ZOZ".]]

* Dethklok's music on ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' has some unique effects, but they may be supernatural in origin. In "Dethkomedy", it's mentioned that the song "Go Into the Water" caused a million people to go into the water and drown (although Ofdensen successfully argued in court that it was their own fault, since the album that song was on was 'intended for fish only'). They summon tornadoes in "Bluesklok", a troll in "Dethtroll", and a large amount of fish in "The Metalocalypse Has Begun". All the while, they remain mostly oblivious to this ability, often acting just as surprised as everybody else at the results. Every time Skwisgaar starts to play a solo, PEOPLE START DYING! Duncan Hills Coffee anyone?
* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', the supervillain [[spoiler:Ace of the Royal Flush Gang]] is a human Brown Note. Simply looking into her eyes, even through a television broadcast, can lead to delusions and eventual catatonia. If she really puts her mind to it, the result can last long after she's left or even become permanent. Eventually her power expands until [[spoiler:she is a full-blown RealityWarper]].

* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'''s Oscar Gold, an inside-series film created by the villain Tearjerker (Roger, in a Bond style parody) so sad you will cry to death. It's about a Jewish, mentally retarded, alcoholic boy, in hiding from the Nazis (Anne Frank style), whose puppy has cancer... ''and then the pup dies and Oscar walks and jumps in joy while he drags the dead doggie body...''

** It's never stated, but it is implied, with the Golden Turd. While it does have a lot of monetary value, seeing as how it's solid gold and encrusted with valuable gems, it drives the people who find it to do some insane things to keep it or to prevent others from having it, implying that it does have a more drastic immediate effect on the finders. Let's see, the first man who finds it is with his friend, [[spoiler: and he quickly kills the friend because he doesn't like the idea of sharing the value. He regrets it immediately and kills himself]]. The next person who finds it is a long-time ethical cop [[spoiler: who takes it from a crime scene two weeks before retirement, putting his pension at risk]]. He immediately regrets it, but not before his wife finds out. [[spoiler: The cop decides to return it and his wife ACTS like she agrees, but then we see her put poison in his tea... The turd ends several episodes later powering up Roger´s UFO so he can escape the war on earth between heaven and hell forces after the apocalypse, but not before taking Stan and '''Jesus''' itself as passengers to the anti-Christ hideout...transforming it along the series from an ArtifactOfAttraction to a some sort of ChekhovsGag]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' has quantum lichens, such as Langdon Cobb. Anybody who sees one, even in a photograph, would be drained of their lifeforce, which it would then collect for nourishment. Cobb becomes an actor because the adulation given to him as a celebrity is enough to substain him without draining anyone.

** Grandpa Smurf's foe Nemesis was a wizard who's face had become so hideously deformed in an accident that no-one could bear to look at him, either fainting or fleeing in horror if they did so.

** In ''VideoGame/FateExtra'', Elisabeth Bathory's singing is physically painful to hear, and her cooking can induce near-death experiences. In the former case, she's a GiftedlyBad pop idol wannabe with [[CuteButCacaphonic no sense of volume]] and a ''breath weapon'' in her voice. In the latter case, she's [[LethalChef just that bad at cooking]].

See also BlackSpeech for inherently evil languages, which may overlap with this for people who aren't evil enough. A common trait of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, due to how mind-breakingly alien they are. The nastiest forms of this also force their victims to propagate them, overlapping with MindVirus. Not to be confused with the real-life [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brownian_noise "Brown noise"]], which is completely harmless and sounds a bit like a poorly maintained air conditioner.
