* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}'', at Scarlet Overkill's coronation ceremony, Bob and Stewert nearly unscrew the chandelier while being [[BeeAfraid chased by a bee]]. When Kevin and Stewert try to pull Bob out, his shoe gets stuck, which causes the chandelier to unscrew completely. It falls onto and supposedly kills Overkill. [[spoiler:She lives and declares a massive attack on the Minions, thinking that they tried to kill her.]]

** Subverted, as the "victims" in question are sitting astride the chandelier before it falls. Both survive, since the King's mattress broke their fall (sort of).

** In a later {{filler}} case, a man named Itsuro Soejima dies when a just-as-huge chandelier in his house falls on him. Then there's a DoubleSubversion: first [[spoiler: it looks like Soejima ''shot down'' said chandelier [[TheAlcoholic while drunk]] and that's why it fell on him]], and later we see that [[spoiler: Soejima was ''killed'' by his sister-in-law Kyouko Takahata in practice, since she got him drunk and manipulated him to shoot the chandelier to kill him.]]

* In ''VideoGame/SunsetRiders'', a game set in the WildWest, the fourth stage with the {{mad bomber}}s features a huge chandelier that dangles around and can be used by {{mooks}} as shooting platforms. [[spoiler: In a subversion, it stays in its place through the whole stage and, when the bosses are killed, it's "peacefully" taken away.]]

* [[http://www.musicandhistory.com/pdf/m/february.pdf On February 2, 1795]], Music/JosephHaydn was conducting the premiere of his newest symphony at the King's Theatre, London. At one point, several patrons left their seats to get a better view of Haydn. Not long thereafter, a chandelier crashed to the floor ''where they had just been sitting''. Very cinematic! There were no injuries, earning the piece the nickname "The Miracle Symphony."

It was long believed that this event occurred at the premiere of Symphony No. 96 on March 11, 1791, but the date above was actually the premiere of No. 102. Nevertheless, 96 has held onto the "Miracle" name.[[/note]]
