* Happens in ''Film/{{Pleasantville}}'' when George announces, "Honey, I'm home!" before he discovers that his wife -- and his dinner -- are not there, signaling the effective destruction of his "pleasant" home life. It is especially significant because Pleasantville had never before experienced rain.

* Played straight in the ''WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' episode "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgLyUbmU19A The Vampire Strikes Back]]"; first the Castle Thunder sound is used at the beginning of the episode (but is presented in very low-fidelity quality and sticks out like a sore thumb), but then newer, more realistic (and ''LOUDER'') thunderclap sounds are used for the rest of the episode (driving the show more toward realism compared to the classic "campy" cartoon feel the original series had). The newest (and more darker and realistic) show, ''ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', featured this as well in a couple of episodes, including a Thunderous Confrontation in an episode featuring a dangerous battle on an old building's roof.

* Mocked in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick's review of ''HocusPocus''. It happened everytime she said the word "[[AManIsNotAVirgin virgin]]" and by the end, she was saying it to hear the thunder.

# '''The Thunderous Underline''' marks a recently-spoken sentence or word as particularly important, [[LightningReveal illuminates]] a recently-arrived character as particularly dangerous and/or sinister, or provide appropriate mood lightning for a villainous laugh. This is frequently lampshaded, subverted, or just plain mocked, though it still gets played straight on occasion.
