Added DiffLines:

* The Killer Wail from ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' exhibits this effect, but only against entities who have [[DeflectorShield deployed a Bubbler]] or [[SuperMode transformed into a Kraken]], due to the invincibility effect provided by those. It is impossible to tell if this effect works on normal Inklings, [[BrownNote typically because they do not last long enough]].

* The famous [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2WcBi9mu6A "Blown Away Guy"]] Maxell tape commercial from 1980. Also done in print form (and in the UK, the guy listening to the music is Creator/PeterMurphy!).

* In ''Series/BlackBooks'', Manny bets Bernard that he can sell a book to the next person to enter the shop; he tries it, but doesn't even get as far as "hello" before the customer unleashes a furious rant about not wanting to be pestered by salespeople in shops, the force of which blows Manny's hair back.

This, though, is that feeling taken [[BeyondTheImpossible beyond what's possible in real life]][[note]] but if the fictional setting allows for it, then Beyond The Impossible doesn't apply[[/note]]. A sound or series of sounds, if sufficiently loud, will push someone or something around as would the wind of a hurricane or tornado, well beyond what would happen in the RealLife. This trope is almost always [[RuleOfFunny played for laughs]], but the RuleOfCool has it weaponized now and then as a [[ElementsOfNature type of non-standard elemental damage]] combining aspects of BlowYouAway, GlassShatteringSound, and ExplosionPropulsion.

* In ''Disney/TheRescuersDownUnder'', Wilbur is playing loud music and can't hear Bernard and Miss Bianca calling him. As Bernard walks over to Wilbur's boom box to turn it off, he is clearly being blown back by the sound.

Contrast this to BrownNote and LoudOfWar, where the sound has a purely psychological effect on the target, as opposed to the physical effect of GaleForceSound. See also GlassShatteringSound, where the effect is limited to glass. MakeMeWannaShout has a similar effect, but only caused by a person's voice, and it's less frequently used for comedy.

to:

In RealLife, sounds loud enough to move objects are above decibel level 194. At this level, they are no longer sound waves moving ''through'' the air so much as they are shock waves pushing the air along in front of them. You don't want to be anywhere near a place where this trope is happening in real life. It's not a gale, it's a battering ram.

* In RealLife, sounds that act like the trope description are effectively pressure waves through the air. Judging by the effect of explosions (broken bones from the pressure wave and various injuries from flying debris), this trope happening in real life would be extremely destructive, as it somehow produced the effect of an explosion continuously.

* Near the end of the second ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' movie, Mike and Don send Shredder flying by turning the speaker he's standing in front of at maximum and hitting a chord.

* In the video the Music/LindseyStirling song "Roundtable Rival", the guitarist's amplifiers are able to blow down Linsdey and her backup dancers. Lindsey uses the same amplifiers to even greater effect against the guitarist when she plugs in her Stroh violin.
