* In the second installment of ''VideoGame/TheDenpaMen'', a slow, sad track plays after the first battle in the beginning once [[spoiler: Crystal, Jasper, and Amber, the hero's wife and two children respectively, are kidnapped.]] The theme continues until you leave Digitown, but doesn't play if you renter.
** This theme plays again at the East Village, because [[spoiler: all but one of the residents of the town have been kidnapped by the Hammer Angler.]]
** In the third game, the Locksmith's House constantly plays the sad theme, because [[spoiler: both the locksmith residing there and his grandma eventually die over the story. The hero even tries to Revive the grandma, but it doesn't work.]]

** Another Beethoven example is the second movement of his final sonata in C minor (No. 32), written 5 years before he died. After the dramatic first movement ends with the Picardie third leading straight into the second movement, this movement starts off with a much calmer theme that highly contrasts with what you just heard. The first few variations on that theme gradually get more intense until finally bearing a resemblance to modern boogie-woogie, immediately after which it quiets down and maintains a serene, lonely, ethereal quality throughout the rest of the movement right up to the end. What's more, Beethoven never wrote a third movement for this sonata (because he felt no need to, not because he died before he could finish it), so the entire sonata is over at that point, and the feeling persists. The feeling is intensified by the juxtaposition of the fact that, by this point in Beethoven's life, he was almost completely deaf and did not have long to live, and this is one of the last piano works he has ever composed.

** ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' has "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_cF8UlwOZE Spartans Never Die]]", the music during the opening cinematic of the post-credits mini-level "Lone Wolf". The first half of "Ashes" combines this trope with a OneWomanWail, and the second also uses PlayingTheHeartStrings. The piano section without the wail can be heard during the cutscenes at the ends of the
Winter Contingency" and "New Alexandria" missions. ''3''[='s=] "Keep What You Steal" is also reused when Six retrieves "the package" (Cortana).
