* This first developed from the fact that natural background noise in the wilderness will disappear when the animals making the noise are alerted to intruders. If you are in the woods, and everything suddenly goes quiet, it is a safe bet that [[ParanoiaFuel you are not alone]]. Scuba divers are also warned to take note if all the fish disappear, as there's a good chance that they're fleeing a a predator--a shark, a giant squid, etc.

* Happens more often than not in ''Literature/TheHoundsOfTheMorrigan''. The main characters are looking for a McGuffin that, in theirs hands, will bring down the Celtic goddess of war; in hers, [[ArtifactOfDoom well...]] However, everytime the goddess's attention is focused somewhere, her ears absorb all the noises of the whereabouts. Therefore, she cannot spy on or attack the main characters without unwittingly creating complete silence, which promptly tips them off. Several times.
* Explained and developed in ''Literature/TheHungerGames'', particularly during the Quarter Quell. Katniss comes from a mining district and knows that when a mine canary stops singing, the air is growing foul and danger is imminent. One tribute is singing constantly. The group figure - correctly - that when she stops singing, danger is approaching them and they should get out of there.

* ''Literature/ShamanBlues'': When exploring a hospital, Witkacy notes that despite places like this usually teeming with ghost activity, this one is eerily empty and quiet, hinting to what's really roaming the building.
