* Scaramouche from season 5 of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' initially uses a magic flute to telekinetically move rocks and create a [[ImprovisedGolem gigantic stone golem]] to fight Jack with. When the flute is broken, he uses [[SingingSimlish scatting]] to swing around a scimitar instead. He also has a tuning fork (or perhaps a reverse tuning fork) that causes objects it hits to vibrate until they crumble. He destroys both of Jack's DualWielding daggers in this way, but Jack takes the tuning fork from him when Jack defeats him.

** There is also the Swedish myth of Näcken, sort of a male version of the sirens. Näcken is a nude man with long hair who sits in the middle of a raging river (or occasionally a lake) and plays the fiddle, luring people to drown with the music. There are stories about musicians who have bargained with him to learn his skill at the fiddle, but these contracts usually have a terrible prize, as Näcken is a trickster at best, and outright evil at worst.

** The [[UsefulNotes/{{Wales}} Llamedosians]] had terrible feared battle-choirs whose singing could decimate enemies and win wars. (A ShoutOut to ''Film/ Zulu''). They also had battle-harps whose tones could cause walls to fall and enemies to [[BrownNote embarrass themselves]].

* In ''WebOriginal/ArknLegacy'', Ryael from Bard of the Black Violin almost certainly counts for this trope. In their Arkn life, it was mentioned they had killed with the powers of the titular Black Violin.

* The ''{{Pathfinder}}'' bard's highest level ability is called "Deadly Performance". Hear or see the bard perform and fail your save and you die, either from joy or sorrow.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. Sure, all that Sing does is put the opponent to sleep, but there's always Perish Song, which kills anyone who hears it within three turns. Not to mention Hyper Voice, Bug Buzz, and other sound-based attacks. [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Meloetta And then there's Meloetta.]], a Legendary uses mostly sound-and-music-based moves; and [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Primarina]], a siren who controls water through singing and whose Hidden Ability, "Liquid Voice," turns all sound-moves into Water-type moves.
