* The first case of ''Series/StickWithMeKid'' (covering the first two episodes) invoked this with a chemical that, when sprayed on glass, would make any loud sound shatter it. It was used to [[spoiler:post-date a diamond theft and replacement with a fake by spraying it on the (actually already swapped) diamond's case during the day and simply tripping the alarm at night]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/ShrekTheThird'' Prince Charming shatters the audience members' wine glasses, opera glasses and even [[SerialEscalation pearl necklaces]] with his girly high-pitched singing during his play.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin'': The villain hires Bianca Castafiore in order to shatter the bulletproof glass holding a model ship he was planning on stealing.
* ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTailFievelGoesWest''. The villains have Fievel imprisoned inside a glass bottle, but fortunately his sister Tanya takes the stage at that point, and her song breaks the bottle.

* In the WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse short "[[Recap/MickeyMouseS2E17BottleShocked Bottle Shocked]]", one of the obstacles Mickey has to avoid while trying to return to Minnie with a bottle of champagne is an opera singer whose voice threatens to shatter everything in the vicinity made of glass, the bottle included.
* Played with in an early CodeLyoko episode as it's not initially realized that sound (supersonic and generated by XANA) broke the "glass" in question. Rather the plastic cup happened to break when Yumi, angry at Sissi, squeezed it while lecturing her. Still this trope is lampshaded when Ulrich points out that it's a plastic cup, not "Venetian crystal" while [[ShipTease tending to Yumi's cut hand]].
