* Issue #11 ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' kicks off with one of these: having agreed to help unseal the gates to [[EvilTowerOfOminousness Orochi Tower]], John (AKA: The Black Signal) signals the player characters via a [[SkyscraperMessages skyscraper message]] on the side of the Tower itself, using his powers to spell out the words "COME ON IN, CHUCK" in lit-up windows. Given that Orochi Tower's easily the biggest building in the entire city, this gets the attention of both the players and just about every single allied faction in Tokyo. Cue massive assault on the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon.

* At the climax of ''EarthX'', moments before [[spoiler:Black Bolt is torn apart by the Celestials]], he uses his cosmically-powered voice to call across the universe for the one being who can fight them: [[spoiler: Galactus.]]

** One of the best examples of EpicHail is the lighting of the Beacons of Gondor to signal the Rohirrim.

* In JamesSwallow's ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' ''Literature/BloodAngels'' novel ''Deus Encarmine'', Rafen is deeply troubled by the events and goes to [[TalkingToTheDead speak with his dead mentor, Koris]]. He finds his vox, with its command codes, not yet disabled. Using it, Rafen sends a message to their headquarters, detailing all that has happened. * The Dark Mark of ''Literature/HarryPotter'' is a more sinister example of this. It is generally used to call the Death Eaters (who, keep in mind, are a group of murderous racists) together, and does so by causing a tattoo on their forearms to burn. An alternate version acts as a giant, floating, glowing, signpost which they use to mark the sites of their [[MoralEventHorizon atrocities]]. Also, it looks rather unpleasant (being a putrid skull with a snake for a tongue).

** Not quite as big as the other examples, but in "Let's Kill Hitler", Amy and Rory [[spoiler:create a giant crop circle spelling out "Doctor" to get his attention. He then [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this with a deadpan "Really?"]]

* In ''VideoGame/Riven'', the sequel to ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'', you signal Atrus by [[spoiler:opening a fissure into outer space]]. [[spoiler:Opening the "Star Fissure" (as it's called) causes [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt The Age of Riven to ''die'']] as the strain of the rift begins to literally bring the sky crashing down around you. This was the only way to "Signal" Atrus because the blurry gateway in the Linking Book you used to get there in the first place made it so he could only detect "large changes in the fundamental aspects of the Age". However, the Age was already dying ''before'' you got there, and (if Gehn can be believed) already in it's final hours, meaning you merely accelerated the inevitable.]]

** In ''Literature/SmallFavor'', Harry brings a couple guns to his showdown with Nicodemus. These particular guns are incendiary rounds, which shoot a very large fireball, which is capable of melting metal. This is dual purpose; the first use is to surprise Nicodemus and the Nickelheads, and get them to back off for a few minutes. The second is to signal Miss Gard to bring in the helicopter (mounted with a minigun) [[BigEntrance while blaring ''Ride of the Valkyries''.]]
