* Creator/GiacomoPuccini did this in the final moments of ''Opera/MadamaButterfly''. Butterfly commits ritual suicide just as Pinkerton runs in calling her name. The final melody is the Japanese-sounding suicide theme from earlier in the play, but ends on a screaming discordant first inversion... and leaves you in suspense even as Pinkerton discovers the truth.



* The Music/GiacomoPuccini opera ''Theatre/MadameButterfly'' ends with a scary, unexpected ''major'' chord (in first inversion).

(Music geeks might be interested to [[IncrediblyLamePun note]] that there is an opposite technique, the "Picardy third," or "Tierce de Picardie" in which when a song that has been in minor the whole time goes into major on the very last chord.) Compare HaHaHaNo.

Last Note Nightmare can be very comparable to a JumpScare, especially of the ScreamerPrank variety. The opposite of a Last Note Nightmare is LastNoteHilarity. One could consider this the musical equivalent of MoodWhiplash.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ShrekForever'', when Shrek reveals he knows of Fiona's personal taste and preferences as well as her human/ogre duality - and that the reason for these are that she had never been kissed by him -, she pulls him close and they kiss. The typical Shrek/Fiona love theme plays, but the final chords are changed to minor chords, which render an overall sad atmosphere to the situation. Turns out that, in that timeline, Fiona doesn't (yet) love Shrek because she never knew him ([[spoiler:thanks to Rumpelstiltskin's deal, Shrek had never been born]]), and the kiss has no effect whatsoever, much to Shrek's dismay. ''She even cleans her mouth on the back of her hand''.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has this in ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipISMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles The Cutie Mark Chronicles]]'' when the Sonic Rainboom interrupts Fluttershy's "So Many Wonders" song and scares away the animals.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWgqFk_6KR4 Synchronize/Sugilite]] starts with Amethyst and Garnet's themes being remixed together. When the music reaches the point where they fuse into Sugilite, the themes combine into a distorted bass with an echoing diving beat that emphasize just how menacing Sugilite herself is. [[https://youtu.be/IAhozLQLF-U?t=1m28s The scene in "Cry for Help" where she briefly reappears]] manages to make it even worse, due to her uncharacteristically quiet rage.

* "Tonight is the Night I Fell Asleep at the Wheel" by BarenakedLadies ends with a strange opera-esque high note. But somehow it seems appropriate as it seems to coincide with the final result of the title...
