** Sheryl Nome and Ranka Lee from ''Anime/MacrossFrontier''. The latter very much so. In one episode, Sheryl was to sing to establish a deal with a Zentradi Marine Regiment. When she collapsed due to being sick, it was used as an excuse for an uprising; however, when [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAWUue_Cf9g Ranka airdropped into a]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KS6Rm9ctMY battlezone and started singing]], the rebelling Zentradi immediately stopped fighting. As they keep listening, the soldiers steadily progress from gawking, through Luminescent Blush, to HeartSymbol Wingding Eyes and {{Nosebleed}}s. Yes, [[{{Moe}} she's that cute]].

*** Also played with in that Basara and his singing is hardly effective at all for the first fourth of the series, and most of the military and other characters seem him as a nuisance and an unneeded distraction.

** GirlGroup Walküre of ''Anime/MacrossDelta'' mixes this with MagicalGirlIdol. Like Fire Bomber, they perform in the middle of the battlefield, except they ''don't'' pilot HumongousMecha. They do this because their singing is the only thing that can cure [[HatePlague Var Syndrome]].
