* ''[[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment The Spoony One]]'' did it in his parody of ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' - using the Triforce itself, no less - only to throw it away in disgust because what good is a stupid triangle when you can have [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII a gunblade]]]]?

* BunnyMustDie also has a fanfare when getting any item, owing to it's Metroid influence.

Added DiffLines:

** They do it upon getting the flag in an early mission in the second game...at which point the building starts to give way under them. [[CerebusSyndrome They mostly avoid dancing from then on.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In ''1/2-Genie Hero'', she goes through the animation, complete with holding out her hand and a big smile, when she gets... sick. (Doing so ''is'' part of a ChainOfDeals quest, to be fair.)

* ''Super {{Scribblenauts}}'' contains a level which bears a marked similarity to World 1-1 Super Mario Bros. The hint you are given at the beginning of the level is simply "STARITE GET!"

** 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)".
