* In ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'', Doc finds himself in a bind when he is attacked by ghosts and runs out of holy weapons to use. [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind Sucked into his own mind]] by one of the ghosts, he [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/20p66 receives advice]] from his dad and spends the next 3-4 pages doing nothing but humming the catchy ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' theme, which (of course) enables him to [[spoiler:punch, chop, and finally ''stab'' the final ghost]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' love magical music. One episode has Harmony Smurf playing a magical bagpipe that put all the other Smurfs into comas. Indeed, the original ''Smurfs'' movie, ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfsAndTheMagicFlute'', was about them cutting down a huge tree to carve a tiny little magic flute... and that's for stopping somebody who has another magic flute that they made.
* The Saturday morning cartoon ''WesternAnimation/{{Hammerman}}''.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'''s Imaginationland trilogy, it's necessary to sing the Imaginationland song to travel from the real world to Imaginationland.
* The power used by Floatzart, a villainous ghost from ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters''.
* "Mugic" is one major aspect of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Chaotic}}'' universe.

* Musa of ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' is the fairy of sound and music.



* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}},'' MagicalFlautist Wilykit uses her [[BizarreInstrument flute]] music to put people into a trance. Her ArtfulDodger brother Wilykat then picks their pockets while they're out of it.

* Musa of ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' is the fairy of sound and music. Her spells often involve music a lot. Her attacks are based on music and sound. She usually uses attacks that are disco themed and can create disco-ball force-fields, distracting musical blasts, and virtual speakers which enclose around an enemy and immobilize them through incredibly loud bass music. Musa can also create walls and barriers of the musical scale and explosive musical notes.

** Taken to the fullest extent of the trope in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening Link's Awakening]]'', where the [[PlotCoupon 8 Instruments of the Sirens]] were required to wake the Wind Fish and leave the island, in addition to having an ocarina which had 3 plotdevice songs.
** Used in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' to summon the Golden Wolf, who teaches you combos.

** Used in While ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]'' doesn't have an ''instrument'' per se, Link can blow (or howl in wolf form) on grass whistles to summon Epona or birds, and late in the game gets a whistle that can also call Epona. And in his wolf form, Link can also howl at Howling Stones to summon the Golden Wolf, who teaches you combos.Wolf/Hero's Spirit and learn new moves from him.

** It was obvious that ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks Spirit Tracks]]'' would go with this Trope ever since it was revealed that the game's Japanese name was "Earth`s Whistle". The "whistle" was revealed to be the Pan-flute like "Spirit Pipes", which are played by using the touchscreen and microphone in tandem. They work almost identically to magic instruments from earlier games. You also play duets with the Lokomo and Zelda with instruments such as bass, shamisen, flute, drums, and oboe, and to some extent... a pair of vocal cords. Which are held by Gage, Steem, Carben, Embrose, Rael and Zelda respectively.

** ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'': It's debatable whether Minmay's effect on the Zentraedi is a product of Fold Waves or just cultural exposure, but Expanded Universe materials have made Minmay havee a powerful Fold Receptor Factor.

** ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}'' has this as a fundamental part of the premise. The alien antagonists ("Protodeviln") experience literal pain when exposed to music, due to the protagonist's "Anima Spiritia". Sure, it's not genuinely magical, but you wouldn't know that from the laser speaker pods and light show Fire Bomber puts on.

** ''Anime/MacrossZero'' has the quasi-magical effects of the female lead's singing explained through Fold Receptor Factor: the rocks she levitates contain Fold Quartz, and the Protoculture superweapon known as "the bird-man" runs on it.
** ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' explored Fold Waves more fully: it introduced Fold Quartz (a mineral that reacts to Fold Waves), and Ranka is able to communicate with the Vajra, at least on a basic level, through her songs thanks to this phenomenon.
