* A newly-added class in ''AtlanticaOnline'' uses a guitar as a weapon. Despite very obviously being an acoustic guitar, it makes electric guitar noises, likely because of RuleOfCool. The same reason there's a class that uses what appear to be modern chainsaws in an apparent pre-20th-century AnachronismStew setting -- there were Chainsaws in the 19th century, but they don't look anything like what a modern viewer would expect.

* ''Literature/JakeAndTheDynamo'': This is Magical Girl Tuneless Ramona's schtick. Both her singing and dancing are so abominable that they're essentially weapons of mass destruction. They're just as dangerous to the innocent bystanders and her allies as they are to the monsters, though.

* Demyx in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' is armed with a deadly sitar. Scared? [[ThatOneBoss You will be.]]
** Ironically he is also one of the least cruel, laziest, and nicest Organization XIII members, so not only will you hate him for being a hard boss, you will most likely feel immensely guilty for erasing him from existence afterwards.
** Not to mention he seems to be more interested in playing than actually attacking you. One of the reaction command moments in the fight has him playing away, seemingly completely oblivious to Sora, who looks like he is either preparing an attack or [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments trying to get his attention]].
** As a bonus, if you listen carefully, you can actually hear the tune coming from the sitar. You know, past the sounds of [[MakingASplash gallons of water being used to attack you]].
** Birth by Sleep gives us the Symphony Master Unversed, which not only attacks with its conductor baton, but also controls a floating trumpet, violin '''''and''''' drum at the same time.

** 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 uses the playing both to deafen Tenaya and turn the room's A/C fan into a tornado machine, sucking her out of the base.
