* "The Cost Of The Crown" by Music/MercedesLackey for any example of TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask. Thanks to a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uU_xqR35XDI popular PMV]], the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fandom has especially latched onto it as a theme song for Princess Celestia (and thus many tributes to her use it). The ''Literature/WarriorCats'' fandom also likes it for Bluestar.

* Ever thought that LeParkour on a ''[[TankGoodness tank]]'' cannot be done? The Russian blokes who made [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buwratIt5So this vid]] from WorldOfTanks sure did not.
* Speaking of ''WorldOfTanks'', remember when someone merged the two versions of the Wehrmacht anthem ''Panzerlied'' (The instrumentals from the ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' version with the vocals from ''Film/BattleOfTheBulge'')? Someone used that to showcase the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KuWH0Yi_lk might of the German Tank Tech Tree]].

* Another early progenitor of the modern FanVid: ''Fighter Fling,'' created by none other than the F-14 Tomcat fighter squadrons of the '''[[YanksWithTanks United States Navy]]'''. That's right, even the hotshot ''Film/TopGun'' types were into this sort of thing! From 1989 to 2004 (when the Tomcat's retirement was announced), the squadrons would produce one long yearbook-like video of Tomcats and their crew acting badass or [[BunnyEarsLawyer Bunny-Eared]] set to whatever music was popular at the time. Every so often, clips or entire Fighter Fling videos appear on Website/YouTube, but as they are no less copyright violations than the average modern-day FanVid, they are often taken down due to DMCA.

* "Teenage Dream" by Music/KatyPerry is frequently used for any relationship involving teenage characters. "Last Friday Night" is a go-to song for depicting strange situations, HilarityEnsues, or BigLippedAlligatorMoment scenes in the canon by implying the characters were intoxicated while it happened.
