* ''TheFastAndTheFurious'' film series loves this. Up there with the DramaticGunCock is the dramatic gear change where just before some highly dramatic part of a car chase, the driver discovers some gear they apparently hadn't discovered until now and give the gear box a big crank, labouring each shift, cuminating in the reengagment of the gear disks. If the car has nitros and the movie has a cgi budget then the clicking action may continue as the shot goes into the engine and shows off a whole load of other parts that click before coming out of the afterburner.

* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' practically breathes this trope when the intelligent devices get an upgrade. Suddenly they go from being fun little quirky guns to being bad-ass revolvers, or hand-held artillery weapons with shot-gun shells.

Think about it, where would the {{Badass}} be without the crack of his knuckles and the cock of his gun to let everyone know he was dangerous? How else can we make a nerdy hacker seem cool and adventurous without his fingers blazing across the crackling keyboards?

* [[UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame Arcade games.]] While the modern enthusiast scene generally favors silent buttons and joysticks for smooth action, to many nostalgic players the experience just isn't the same without old school clicky buttons and joysticks.

** Mechanical keyboards have returned in popularity these last few years, being made by gaming gear companies such as Razer and Steelseries. The main benefit is that mechanical keyboards are ''indestructible'', able to take the stress and [[RageQuit anger]] any player can throw at it. Others just find the feel and the sound satisfying, genuine.

* Used symbolically in ''TheSixMillionDollarMan'' whenever Steve Austin uses his bionics.
* Every time Slim Charles in "TheWire" moves his head we get to hear the click of the beads on his braids. Word of God says the clicks were augmented cos they liked the sound. For a series with a strictly realistic soundtrack (only heard when someone has the stereo on in universe), this was the nearest thing to mood music for the tall man.
* In the days before special sound effects, [[DoctorWho the Doctor]] operated the TARDIS' console with the clicks of switches and the ratcheting of dials.

* Tether in {{Literature/Enter The Farside}} has the ability to link two objects together, and can send one flying to the other with a thought. Everytime uses his powers, there's always a click that can be heard.

* This is the reason why silent touch-screen buttons are incredibly unpopular among older users, people who have been conditioned to expect an audible click of some sort when pressing a button - this is interpreted as confirmation the machine has received your instruction and is acting on it. If nothing happens when swiping a hot-spot button onscreen, not even a reassuring button-click, older users can get disorientated or assume the thing hasn't worked. For this reason, digital cameras incorporate a shutter-click noise when activated. It isn't needed and strictly speaking it makes no sense on a digital. But it signals, to people used to hearing the shutter-click on an old-style film camera, that the camera has been activated and a photo successfully taken.
