* ''Careful (1992)'': One of GuyMaddin's first feature films is about a small mountain town where every citizen must move and speak very quietly to avoid this. So naturally, Maddin produced it as a silent film.

* In the first ''Series/{{Kaamelott}}'' comic book, ''L'Armée du Nécromant'', the knights are caught in an avalanche while fighting a horde of zombies in the mountains. At first they think it was from [[IneptMage Merlin]] casting a spell, but in fact it was because Karadoc and Perceval were yelling while charging into the fray.

* Played with in the winter episode of ''Animation/NuPogodi''. After Wolf is foiled by Hare once again, he bellows "[[SayMyName HAAAAAAAAAAREE!!!]]" at the top of his lungs. Echoes rock the mountaintops... then about a handful of snow falls onto Wolf's head. Intimidated, he says it again in normal voice, there's an ominous rumble and he's covered by some more snow. He shrugs it off [[WhatAnIdiot and whispers "Hare!"]], and, [[TheLastStraw naturally]], triggers a full-scale avalanche.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' gives us the [[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace Perilous Path of Crushing Doom]]. It's a mountain trail where even the slightest noise can set off a deadly rockslide. Afterwards, however, there won't be a another rockslide until it rains again. [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0190.html Team Evil]] gets around this problem by sending [[WeHaveReserves their minions]] to scout the path first and "Shout if they don't find anything."
