** Kochō-no-sei and her tambourine is a much cuter example, but no less dangerous.

* Azawa Kodame in ''Anime/HandShakers'' is an IdolSinger fittingly her wepons becomes more powerful when she puts on a performance mid battle. Despite it leaving her wide open, this power up can be very devastating if her opponent isn't expecting it.

* 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. 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.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': An improvised musical weapon features in "The Lazarus Experiment", when the Doctor uses a church organ to kill the MonsterOfTheWeek, who is stretching his [[JustForPun mass]] very thin.
** An Classic Who episode, "Revelation of the Daleks", featured a cannon that fired compressed rock and roll.
* Musical weapons are the gimmick of ''Series/KamenRiderHibiki'', where they use the ultrasonic vibrations of their music to shatter the MonsterOfTheWeek. The main Rider uses drumsticks (creating a drum on the surface of the monster), the second Rider uses a trumpet-slash-machine gun and the third Rider uses an electric guitar. All three styles are apparently relatively common among the various Oni. Another present-day Rider uses a harp, while four movie-exclusive Riders from the distant past use a flute/machine gun, a gong stuck, a triangle and a pair of cymbals.
* ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'': Decade and Diend get in on the act during the finale of the Hibiki arc of their show, each using a set of drumsticks (joined by several other Riders using trumpets and guitars) against the final monster there.
* British sketch show ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'' featured one skit with a green clarinet that made its targets sing and dance an embarrassing truth about themselves, which its owner abuses to do whatever they want. It could only be countered by [[spoiler:a red tuba that makes you [[BrownNote shit yourself]]]].



* In ''Series/TheMiddleman'', there's a cursed tuba that anyone who hears it play will "drown in the icy waters of the North Atlantic." Naturally, there's an immortal guy who wants to play it to a large crowd.
* ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''' original weaponized instrument, the Dragon Dagger. Of course, this is more of a dagger with a flute design, so...
** Zen-Aku from ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' also had a dagger-flute.
** 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''.
* In ''Series/TheGoodies'' episode "The Stolen Musicians", singer Cilla Black is capable of literally 'bringing down the house' with her singing voice.



* In ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' volume 5, Emma starts out as just a deaf woman able to see sound as colors. Later, she discovers the true powers of her ability - she can [[spoiler:focus the sounds that only she can see into a devastating shockwave, and she can concentrate on people while she plays music to force them to come to her.]]

* ''Broken Radio'' song by ItaloDisco singer Den Harrow is about alien invaders who [[WeaksauceWeakness cannot stand music with rhythm]]. It literally drives them insane. Making every portable radio a weapon.
