** The episode "Starvin' Marvin in Space" plays a cheezy little song about how liberating flying is whenever Marvin is using his stolen space ship to travel around the world. When the boys join him, Cartman complains about the music.
--->'''Stan:''' This is great!\\
'''Cartman:''' Yeah, but where's that crappy song coming from? Can we turn that off?\\
''Marvin turns the music off''\\
'''Stan:''' Yeah, that's better.

* In the musical of ''TheWeddingSinger'', Robbie and Julia first meet at one of his wedding gigs and shake hands. Suddenly everything freezes as they stare at each other, and a high, angelic tone plays. The tone stops after George whacks his keyboard a few times.
* In ''LanoAndWoodleyTheIsland'', every time salt is mentioned there is an ominous "BUM BUUUUUUM" sound effect. At one time, Col mentions salt and nothing happens; he immediately stretches his arms out as to say "Well?" and the BUM BUUUUUM goes off, prompting a "Keep it snappy, keep it snappy!" from Col. Unfortunately, the sound guy seems to get too enthusiastic- the sound henceforth occurs at the mention of words like "insult" and "assault", prompting Frank to eagerly play with it, much to Col's chagrin.

* In ''{{Spamalot}}'', the scene from ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'' where Herbert's father tries to stop the music over and over again is repeated. But this being a musical, he's eventually overruled and a CrowdSong starts. He later unsuccessfully tries to stop the show's closing number.

* "SpyFox in Dry Cereal" provides the trope image. He's chasing after the villain and the road ends ahead, he pushes the "Eject" button expecting the truck to propel him into the air so he can catch the villain. Turns out it's just the cassette tape ejector. (Pressing it again does the job, though.)
* ''{{Battlefield 4}}'': During the prologue mission "Baku", one of the soldiers tries to turn off the radio (playing ''Total Eclipse of the Heart'' by Bonnie Tyler) as your car is sinking, saying he doesn't want to die to the tune of this song.

* In ''[[VideoGame/BanjoKazooie Banjo-Tooie]]'', an ominous theme (aptly named ''There Comes Trouble...'') [[MusicalSpoiler always starts playing when the duo is about to face a boss]]. Eventually, Kazooie points this out by declaring: "Here, the music changed. Every time that happens we always end in a BossBattle" before, obviously, fighting the BigBad's [[TheDragon Dragon]] for the third time.

* All the Hymns in ''ArTonelico'' are sung in-game and heard, though FridgeLogic kicks in when you can use the singer in battle and they can, apparently, sing two complicated songs at once. It helps that each Hymn is usually accompanied with [[MagicMusic massive effects]] somehow. One scene in the first game has the Hymn BGM cut off abruptly when the singer is knocked out.

* In ''SuikodenII'', one of the first dungeons you visit is an old, abandoned castle, now inhabited by the dread Vampire Lord, Neclord. It's filled with zombies, bats, and assorted undead. As you fight your way through it, a spooky pipe-organ tune plays to enhance the atmosphere, and when you finally reach the apex of the main tower, you find Neclord... playing the pipe-organ. When he notices you entering, he turns from the keyboard, and the BGM stops in mid-note, turning to a shocking silence.

* In ''CovertFront'' ''Episode 1: All Quiet on the Covert Front'', the quiet waltz-like music that plays over [[SoundtrackDissonance haunting pictures from the war]] is revealed to be coming from the protagonist's radio.

** The ''Franchise/StarWars''-parody has heroic music swell as Chris/Luke looks over the desert at sunset. Then the camera pans over to Music/JohnWilliams and the London Symphony Orchestra, whom Chris acknowledges and thanks for their hard work before asking to do the theme from ''ThePeoplesCourt''. Then they're killed in the Empire's attack, and we have to make do with DannyElfman. Well, that is if Chris/Luke ''didn't'' decapitate him with his lightsaber... Peter/Han gets ''really'' into the TIE Fighter battle music.
