* ''WebVideo/SharkJumping'', as an {{homage}} to the cheesy older TV shows that they riff on.
-->"There comes a time when life gets you down, when {{ratings}} are low. You've got to do what it takes, got to [[RatingsStunt up the stakes]], 'til there's [[JumpingTheShark nowhere left to go]]! Shark Jumping! Making some friends on the way together! Shark Jumping! Tomorrow's a brand new day! You might [[TonightSomeoneDies lose some friends along the way]], but if you hold your chin up, it'll all be okay! Shark Jumping! That's what friends are, that's what friends are, making our dreams come true!"

* ''Theatre/TheSoldiersTale'' begins each act with "The Soldier's March," which commences the rhyming narration before the curtain rises over a steady drumbeat. The reprise at the start of the second act has slightly different lyrics and a brief pause for extra narration.

* Downplayed with the ''WesternAnimation/ThreeTwoOnePenguins'' theme song. Part of it says " 'Bout a rocket ship and flightless birds", which gives the viewer a little idea of what the show is about.

** Technically this trope but with no actual show to expose [[Series/TheAquabatsSuperShow at the time]], "Theme Song" tells a rather intricate {{backstory}} for the band before mentioning that [[ViewersAreGoldfish they're the Aquabats]] a few times.
