* The [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Archon]] from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' can sing the Song of the Word, which harms any being not sufficiently holy to hear and understand it. Some Archons may have ''dramatically'' different interpretations of just who is and is not holy enough to hear their particular Song unharmed.

** The Fiddler had a female successor named Virtuosa whom has only ever appeared in books featuring the ComicBook/SecretSix, which is fitting since she was created by GailSimone. Virtuosa claims that she's an ardent admirer of the original Fiddler and took up his violin and legacy after his death in honor of him. She in fact had something of a fan girl moment when Fiddler was revived as a Black Lantern during ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'' and offered his violin back, though he was more interested in ripping her heart out.

** The Ghost Saint Lyra Orpheus from first non canon-movie and his two {{Exp|y}}ies: the Benetnasch Mime (lyres, though Mime's armor can turn into a harp) from anime-only "Asgard Arc" and the Silver Saint Lyra Orphée.

** Amy/Sailor Mercury plays a harp to perform her Mercury Aqua Rhapsody, which attacks the enemy with water.
** Michiru Kaiou/Sailor Neptune can use her violin to attack her enemies in the manga version of ''Manga/SailorMoon''.
** Ali from the Makaijuu filler arc of the first [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]] uses his flute to awaken the Cardians and give them instructions. However, this has its limits - when An isn't around to pick out a Cardian for him, Ali tries to summon one randomly and accidentally summons a Cardian that doesn't obey him.
** In the live-action ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'', [[spoiler:Zoicite]] uses the piano to compose attack songs and then, by playing the completed piece, creates various effects, including summoning a youma, allowing an ally to teleport, and long-distance targeting of various people and objects (e.g., [[spoiler:princess-related]], including a visitor to Tokyo, a picture-book, and a girl who merely [[spoiler:identified too strongly with the princess in a storybook]]) with effects that range from unexplained sickness to SpontaneousCombustion. Good thing the BigBad is patient, because [[spoiler:Zoicite]] sure doesn't rush the process.

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.
