---> '''Rose''' (''opening narration''): I will remember that sound until the day I die. It was an awful, revolting noise~not a scream, but the birth-cry of a new creature that surely had no place on God's earth. The thing mewled and whimpered in pain, and those of us who could stand in witness were transfixed~both repelled and fascinated by the grotesque spectacle of it.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AlphaAndOmega'', [[spoiler:Humphrey lets out a howl when [[DisneyDeath he believes Kate has died]]]] - particularly notable since earlier in the movie, howling is done by having the character sing, whereas this one is a wordless, melody-lacking real howl.

He then realizes that [[HeelRealization he's not been as nice as he thought he was]], and is now "a monster cut off from the human race". and cries his eyes out under the moon.
--> '''Narrator:''' "A powerful dragon crying its eyes out under the moon in a deserted valley is a sight and a sound hardly to be imagined."

* The [[Myth/CelticMythology Irish and Scottish]] tradition of [[DeathWail keening]] (singing a lament combined with wailing) over the body during the funeral procession and at the burial site is strikingly similar to the death wail of the [[OurBansheesAreLouder Banshee]];
"Keen" comes from the Gaelic verb "caoin", meaning "to [[Tears cry/weep]], to mourn" and its active article "caoineadh" ("weeping", "crying", "wailing") can also be translated as "[[Elegy elegy]]" or "lament". The caoineadh itself was often composed and performed in an improvised way, with at least one keening woman (bean chaointe) hired to lead the rest of the mourners, who generally joined with the chorus. The caoineadh generally consisted of [[StockCharacter stock poetic]] elements (the genealogy of the deceased, praise for the deceased, emphasis on the sorrow of those left behind etc.) set to vocal lament.
