* Scaramouche from season 5 of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack2017'' 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.

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.

Compare MagicMusic, DiscoTech, ThePowerOfRock, MakeMeWannaShout. See also DreadfulMusician for musicians who merely make you ''wish'' you were dead, and InstrumentOfMurder, which is used by musicians for physical attacks. Also related is the BrownNote, which can be used by a Musical Assassin to cause insanity or death. Not to be confused with ''Theatre/{{Assassins}}'', the musical.

** For an instrument that's not deliberately weaponized, Dr. K of ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'' plays the violin to help her with her brainstorming, and has it linked to her software so that it responds to the music played. She fended off [[TheDragon Tenaya 7]] twice with that same violin: in "Ranger Yellow Part 2", she simply lured her directly beside an amp, but in her eponymous episode, she used the playing both to deafen Tenaya and turn the room's A/C fan into a tornado machine, sucking her out of the base, to the tune of Niccolò Paganini's Caprice No. 24 in A Minor.

* ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries'' by Creator/CharlesStross has (from book #2 on) an assassin codenamed CANDID. She bears an "Eric Zahn Special," a violin specially built [[PoweredByAForsakenChild from the bone of twelve murder/torture victims]] and tuned to frequencies [[BrownNote human beings can hear but not mentally process]]. The case bears a sticker saying "THIS MACHINE KILLS DEMONS," and it does so exceptionally well, but it's hardly that specific... At one point she plays a "song of unbinding" on it -- which, among other things, unlocks doors, breaks geases, and, when specifically focused, opens ''skin''. [[BlackAndGrayMorality Naturally,]] the above-described terror is more commonly known as our hero's beloved wife 'Mo'.
