-> I've never before realized that "cacophony" was onomatopoeic: the noise of the Poultry Bldg. is cacophonous and scrotum-tightening and totally horrible. I think it's what insanity must sound like. No wonder madmen clutch their heads and scream.

*Common for anyone under assault from Daemons or other warp-powers. While it's unlikely to do any difference once a Daemons has taken proper hold, it at least signals anyone around to get away as fast as possible. Psykers, who uses the warp as a weapon, are often seen doing this mindlessly, but that's what happens when you use the dimension of nightmares and horror as a tool.
**The Emperor's Children Traitor Legion has specialized themselves into using sonic weaponry, which inevitably leads to their enemy, and even other friendly squads, to grasp for their ears in pain.

* The first villain in ''[[XWingSeries Requiem for a Rogue]]'' is confronted by a more powerful villain, who uses his blaster to burn off his own hand, telekinetically uses it to choke the first guy, then makes the first guy's head explode. Because [[ComplexityAddiction just shooting, choking, or head-exploding him would be too simple, apparently]], and {{Death Trap}}s aren't personal enough. There's a GoryDiscretionShot, and the first bad guy's silhouette is seen clutching its head before exploding.

** Likewise a stock gesture in ''VideoGame/TheOldRepublic'', along with a milder variant that basically looks like someone shaking their head to stay awake. Generally this is accompanied by GlowingEyes or a BattleAura that is colored depending on the type of Force effect.
