** The fanfare sequences are also so beloved, that when taken out in OtherM, people complained. While this may make some sense for the authorised equipment, not even getting the fanfare for the two upgrades Samus actually picks up is jarring for the series.

* In the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' prequel ''CrisisCore'', Zack Fair does a item holding pose -- complete with glowing rays and triumphant fanfare -- after he molests... er, ''searches'' the Magic Pot in one of his Chocobo Mode DMW summons.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'', the game played a happy chime each time you found an item. One such item is a Rat's Tail, used to complete an important quest. In another case, you get a mysterious rock that helps power your flying ship. In the US version for the NES, the game could inform you that you got Floater. This could be initially puzzling, since in some parts of the US, a floater is a large, buoyant piece of feces.

** This is actually ''detrimental'' in ''LuigisMansion'' if you're going for a high score. Whenever Luigi picks up a more expensive piece of treasure (Jewels and diamonds as opposed to coins and bills) he'll hold it for the camera to see and an item jingle will be cued. The problem with this is that the ''timer for treasures to disappear will not freeze during this'', meaning that if a treasure chest contains one gem and tons of coins, you'd better pick up the coins first without touching the gem (Easier said than done) or else the coins will disappear while Luigi holds the gem aloft. Made even worse in the Hidden Room, whose treasure chest contains tons of loose cash and ''three'' gems, ''each of which will trigger the fanfare''.

* In the ''{{Lufia}}'' games, ''Lufia 2'' in particular had a dramatic fanfare, even if all you found was a single coin or some pocket lint. The truly amusing part was that it was a four-note fanfare, and all heralded pronouncements of what you obtained were phrased as "Got (Item Name)".

* In ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'''s Hero Mode, beating a level prompts a screen showing Agent 3 holding up [[LevelGoal the rescued Zapfish]] and posing. On repeat visits ([[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything where the Zapfish is replaced with a plush replica]]), Agent 3 instead casually holds it (and briefly pats it).

* ''Franchize/Kirby'': The title character usually does a little bit of flourish upon acquiring any powers and collectible items. The super versions of the abilities in ''Kirby's Triple Deluxe'' further raise the animation to awesome levels.

* A Subversion happens early in ''[[JakAndDaxter Jak]] [[JakIIRenegade II]]''. After completing their first mission, the duo go into one of their victory dances from the first game, only to cut it short when the building they're standing on starts to collapse from their weight.

* The gag manga adaptation of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]'', ''[[Manga/TheLegendOfZelda Link's Logbook]]'', also spoofs this: Link insists on doing the entire item pickup routine [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-6YONxzpF7k8/TgshXI9fBII/AAAAAAAACaA/oFmI4fGcSlU/s1600/manga_tww_c05p09.jpg every time he catches one of his own boomerangs]].

[[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/the_legend_of_zelda_the_wind_waker_link_s_logbook/v01/c001/7.html He even does it when he gets ''a bowl of soup'' in an ImagineSpot]], and apparently the fanfare ''in his imagination'' alerts the pig he's trying to catch to his presence.

* In [[WebVideo/RanmaOneHalfAbridged Ranma ½ Abridged]], Final Fantasy VII's famous fanfare gets a ShoutOut as Girl!Ranma, having thoroughly beaten Kuno, flicks his kendo sword up and grabs it with panache. The move is completed by a recreation of the item get dialog box that appears in FFVII too. Seen [[https://youtu.be/xxA6asK36FI?t=6m4s here]]

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' series, upgrades for Samus' suit are traditionally hidden in mysterious spheres held by the Chozo statues found in special rooms; obtaining these upgrades rewards the player with both a new ability and a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKuFCOH-DEg dramatic fanfare]]. In the first game, lesser upgrades such as those for missile capacity were given the same treatment, but the later games used either a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyxTt0z5MFU shorter fanfare]] or quick sound clip.
