* 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.

** Another such motif, "Memory," can be heard coming from a certain statue in Waterfall. You have to play the tune on a piano in order to access a secret item. What's more, the {{leitmotif}} it plays, which receives a more upbeat remix in the final area as "His Theme," which belongs to [[spoiler: Asriel Dreemur, Toriel and Asgore's son, the former identity of Flowey, and the TrueFinalBoss of the Pacifist route.]]

* Abney Park's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQd_LMTn2cs The Secret Life of Dr. Calgori]]" starts off this way, shortly to be joined by steam valves and clockwork-like rhythmic percussion. Appropriate for the story of a [[SteamPunk 1800's era]] MadScientist slowly losing his memory.

* The monkey music box in ''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."
