** Double-use in ''[[GauntsGhosts First And Only]]''. The Jantine Patricians have a number of battle-hymns that they use to rally their forces before combat. The Ghosts, in contrast, use bagpipe music - not only does it help their troops' resolve, everybody ''else'' finds it extremely creepy and unnerving.

* ''Manga/SevenSeeds'' has this occur in the Ryugu Shelter arc. The inhabitants of the shelter become agitated and begin to despair when they learn that [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt meteorites crashed onto earth]] and see its results themselves; then Maria heads onto stage and sings a song to calm everyone down. Maria continues to sing and gives concerts, which helps keep everyone's spirits up, even when life in the shelter goes down the drain. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, this turns out to be a double-edge sword, as Maria's concerts gave the parasites within her a great chance to infect ''everyone'' in the shelter and ultimately leads to everyone's deaths.]]

** In ''Anime/MacrossDelta'', this is part of Walkure's job description; their singing is the only thing that can counter [[HatePlague Var Syndrome]], and as such, Walkure's appearance is the one thing that can reliably prevent people from panicking in the middle of a Var outbreak.

* This is a major plot point in ''Anime/{{Macross 7}}''. When people have their Spiritia drained, they become apathetic and unresponsive. The fix: listening to music from Nekki Basara. [[spoiler: Later on, the BigBad intends to use this effect to literally farm Spiritia to prevent the end of the universe.]] To Basara, this is only a secondary effect to having people to [[CatchPhrase LISTEN TO HIS SONG]].
** This very scene provides both the turning point, as well as the greatest TearJerker in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', pictured above: the [[BigCreepyCrawlies Vajra]] have infiltrated and overrun the civilian "islands" of the Frontier fleet, and the populace, wounded and scared and huddled in shelters, can only cry out for [[IdolSinger Ranka]] to assist them. But [[TheWoobie Ranka]] is in the midst of a [[HeroicBSOD horrible crisis]], and the [=SMS=] squadron is pinned in the ducts as they try to get to their Valkyries. Among the despair and tragedy, [[BrokenBird Sheryl]] [[FallenPrincess Nome]] stands, even though nobody even recognizes her as the "[[IdolSinger Galactic]] [[TheOjou Fairy]]" anymore, and she breaks into the song "Diamond Crevasse." The refugees slowly realize she's singing to them, and their panic subsides to be replaced by peaceful, if mournful, hope. It is from this moment on that Sheryl's music, which used to be high-energy, consumer-friendly rock, assumes a heartfelt indie style, bereft of the bombastic effects or budget of her previous productions. For their part, the people of Frontier embrace her deeper and tighter than ever before.

** In the first movie, Sheryl begins singing in the middle of a Vajra attack to give the people hope. It's broadcast to the entire fleet. Ranka joins for the final verse and things kick into high gear as Alto, Ozma, and Brerea fight to protect the girls.
** Honestly, the entire Macross meta-series exemplifies this trope to the nth degree- specific examples abound throughout.

* In the end of the first act of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', the Elder One attacks Haven head-on just as the Inquisition is celebrating [[spoiler:the closing of the Breach]]. Despite a valiant defense, the organization takes heavy losses, and the PlayerCharacter almost dies to bury the bulk of the Elder One's army under a landslide--along with Haven itself. The Haven evacuees and Inquisition survivors regroup [[DarkestHour in the freezing mountains, with no supplies or any dea where to go now]]. And so [[GoodShepherd Mother Giselle]] begins to sing "The Dawn Will Come", then [[TokenReligiousTeammate Leliana]] joins her, then pretty much everyone at the scene... cue Solas approaching the Inquisitor about the location of a secret mountain fortress that will be the Inquisition HQ for the rest of the game.
