* ''[[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Guilty Gear 2: Overture]]'' gives us "Dignity", complete with OminousLatinChanting, played in the mission before the final fight against Valentine's OneWingedAngel form. "Sorcery" also has OminousLatinChanting, just wordless.
** We also have "Awe of She", Dizzy's theme from various other ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' games in general, which, unlike "Dignity", is also rock/metal music and, like "Sorcery", also has no words.
** Then again, all of the final boss themes of the ''GuiltyGearGames'' have the "Ahh-ahh-ahh" kind of OminousLatinChanting at the beginning when they are first played.
* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' does the same thing as ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' with all the final boss themes, too, like "Awakening the Chaos", "Endless Despair", and "Sword of Doom".
** Then there's the ominous tune "Curse", another wordless OminousLatinChanting song that plays when Take-mikazuchi fires its laser beam down on and destroys a random heirarchial city and when Hazama turns Noel into Mu all the while mocking her attempts to resist him.

* Played with in ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} and Obelix: XXL 2'' which uses male Latin choirs and orchestral music during mass battles with legionaries, but singing in a distinctly pop/indie-rock style rather than the expected classical style or OneWomanWail. This fits the series AnachronismStew feel and the fact that Romans in the ''Asterix'' comics are rarely very intimidating.
** Played more straight in some other tracks, which have a lot of pounding brass and ''ego sum victorium'' and ''ego sum glorium'' going on. These vocals are pitched down to a point where they sound like a silly cartoon choir rather than a real one, doubtlessly intentional.

** The full (and correct) phrase is "Pie Jesu Domine[[labelnote:*]]THWACK[[/labelnote]] Dona Eis Requiem[[labelnote:**]]THWACK[[/labelnote]]." Translation? "Kind Lord Jesus grant them rest." Fitting for the Witch Village, but not so for the Holy Hand Grenade.
** "Grant them rest," is a prayer for the holy souls in Purgatory, asking that the Lord admit them into Heaven. It's for people who are already dead. For this reason, the Agnus Dei for funeral Masses replaces "miserere nobis" with "dona eo requiem," and "dona nobis pacem" with "dona eo requiem aeterium."



* In its masqued ball scene, ''Film/EyesWideShut'' gives us chanting in Romanian (an Eastern European language closely related to Latin) played backwards!

* Happens on ''TheLegendOfKoizumi'', sung by a choir of children during the [[BigGood Pope's]] introductory CrowningMomentOfAwesome: "Fiat Lux!" "Dixitque Deus!". Coincidentally, a different "Fiat Lux" is used in the ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' OVA. Given what is happening while she sings, and knowing the context behind both the song and her ability to perform it, crosses over into TearJerker territory.

* Music/{{Gloryhammer}}'s second album ''Space 1992: Rise of the Chaos Wizards'' has the lines "Sanctus! Dominus! Infernus! Ad Astra!" repeated at the start of the song "Rise of the Chaos Wizards". Roughly translated it means "Holy God! Universe on fire!" "Universe on fire" is the title of a later track on the album.

* The ''WanganMidnight'' anime has ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tGsSijjJtc Voices of S30Z]]'' the theme song of the the ominously named [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Devil Z]], fitting since the car is not only the fastest on Tokyo's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tGsSijjJtc Wangan-sen]], but also one of the dealiest to it's drivers (all previous owners had died in crashes, yet the car survives and continues to run). Later on, the song gets used for every major high powered car in the series.

* Ominous Chanting is quite common on ''Series/{{Merlin}}'', though it's so indistinct that it's hard to tell whether or not it's Latin. Or what they're saying. It's very old English according to the DVD extras.
* Invoked on ''TopGear'' -- for when things like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3i62CAjK0k#t=9m a race to London City Airport between a boat and a bicycle]] just aren't epic enough.
