* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' has Davy Jones and Tia Dalma's music box lockets, which is the only thing shown to be able to drive the [[LoveMakesYouEvil love-hardened]] [[PsychoForHire vindictive sadist]] to [[TearJerker tears]].

* ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' features this in both ''The Thousand-Year Door'' and ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' with specifically designated "Memory" themes that used a music-box-like effect when a particularly [[TearJerker Tear-Jerking]] moment was happening.

* In ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonAndTheDiabolicalBox'', one of these plays during TheReveal. In this case, the music isn't the symbolic part, it's [[spoiler:the Elysian Box itself, which finally fulfills its original purpose of carrying a message from Anton to Sophia and back. Of course, it's less on the nostalgia and more on the what could've been.]] The music box track, Iris, is used a few minutes later in orchestrated form for the end credits. And it's one hell of a TearJerker.
** In ''VideoGame/ProfessorLaytonAndTheMiracleMask'', another music box tune plays when [[spoiler: Henry remembers the time when he and Randall first became friends]]. [[HeartwarmingMoments It's adorable as hell]].

* {{Theatre/Anastasia}}, like the movie it's adapted from, features the OrphansPlotTrinket music box given to the title character as a child; [[AdaptationExpansion the entire score was expanded or re-written to make the score more fitting for a fully fledged stage musical]] but not only did the music box's theme stay the same, it became a Leitmotif that reoccurred several times and in several songs throughout the show.

* The monkey music box in ''Theater/ThePhantomOfTheOpera''. It comes up in the prologue as the first item associated with Christine and what happened in the bowls of the opera. The tune it plays is "Masquerade", the opening number for the second act. (In that big dance with [[CostumePorn massive decorated costumes]], some dancers wear monkey costumes in reference to it.) It is used as a nostalgic music box during the finale, when it begins to play down in the Phantom's lair and he, despairing, remembers the words of the song: "Hide your face so the world will never find you."

* The movie adaptation of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' features a TitleThemeDrop of "Innocent Starter" when Nanoha resolves to become friends with Fate. It's rather appropriate if one is familiar with the song's lyrics.

* When alone, Suitengu of ''Anime/SpeedGrapher'' obsessively plays a music box with a melancholic tune and thinks about his past. This ultimately leads to a flashback indicating this is the only possession left from his happy childhood, which was destroyed by [[LoanShark loan sharks]]. Making things interesting, Saiga, the hero, independently whistles the same tune, foreshadowing the fact there's a connection between himself and Suitengu.
