* Most of the ambience in ''TwistedMetal: Black'' fits this trope, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_GqM98ymcg Snowy Fields]] is the epitome of terrifying drone.

* ''VideoGame/DayZ'' has its entire soundtrack as this, and its ''pure, unadulterated,'' ''[[NightmareFuel terror]]''. The best part is the music always seem to come up at the worse moment, making nearly every situation incredibly tense and every player paranoid of what's around the corner.

* An unintentional example is the Level 3 music in "Lollipops" from ''VideoGame/Action52''. Listening to it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHMOorKpIKM in a ROM utility]] is scary enough, but that's nothing compared to how it sounds in-game ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kx6UdhbDKTc skip to 3:17]]).
