** ''VideoGame/{{Ace Combat 04|ShatteredSkies}}'' has a minor example at the end of the "Invincible Fleet" level, where the other pilots with you all begin singing their country's national anthem, with instruments coming in behind them and the radio filter over their voices fading out.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Rochard}}'''s Casino stage, the song "Space Debris" plays as muffled diegetic music in the maintenance corridors, becoming background music once you enter the main casino floor
* The opening cutscene of ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' Brood War starts with DuGalle and Stukov listening to an aria on a phonograph. As the cutscene ends the colony is overrun by the Zerg and the Battlecruiser leaves the planet, the music continues and shifts to a chorus.
