** Though Howard Shore was provided with full translations for the lyrics he used, he didn't always follow them linearly in the score, and sometimes they ended up quite chopped up. [[TheyJustDidntCare Plus mispronounced]] (the Sindarin ''rovail'' [wings] and ''naur'' [fire], in the battle at the Black Gate, should be pronounced as "roh-vile" and "nowr", not "roh-veel" and "noor").

* As with many other tropes, ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' [[LampshadeHanging hung a lampshade]] on this one when [[spoiler: Vaarsuvius makes a [[DealWithTheDevil Deal with the Devils]].]] In this case, [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0635.html an actual choir is seen]] singing "Bunkus! Nonsuch! Gibberos! Gobbleygoos!" just to the side of the main action. According to one of the [[spoiler:devils]], the choir consists of dead paedophiles who are "[snipped] fresh every morning so they keep that high pitch." Because it "just isn't the same without someone chanting faux latin in the background".

* Power/thrash metal band Iced Earth has the 16-minute epic ''Dante's Inferno'', based on, well, [[DivineComedy Dante's Inferno]]. It has sections of what sounds like OminousLatinChanting, although songwriter Jon Schaffer has admitted that it's just gibberish invented to sound evil. OminousLatinChanting also shows up in the songs ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTjrUIDtQuA Damien]]'' (based on the movie ''Film/TheOmen'') ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQ_EGqAgRSg The Coming Curse]]'', and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HWPy1Y9mwY&feature=related Harbinger of Fate]]''. Also in the middle of their song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RINnkM9ji14 Divide Devour]]" (''Dies Natalis, Odisse, Mortalis'').

* Averted in the ''DivineComedy'' where Latin chanting is (usually) a good sign and a contrast to the wailing screams of agony heard in hell.

* The ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series has ominous Gregorian chant playing during all of the main menu screens.
** Other examples include "The Maw" (heard at the beginning of the level of the same name), the Delta Halo theme, and "Ancient Machine"(one of the Flood themes). Several tunes also feature an EtherealChoir. This isn't technically OminousLatinChanting though, since the chanting isn't in Latin. In fact it's nothing more than "uh" and occasionally "oo".
** Except in a few themes (notably ''Destroyer's Invocation'' from ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'') in which the chanting is reversed English. Then there's the music for the live-action trailer ''We Are ODST'' which features someone singing in ''Welsh'' about cheating Death and 'plunging headfirst into the afterlife'
** In ''Halo 2'''s Delta Halo/Regret mission, the Prophet of Regret can be heard [[ThemeTuneCameo chanting the series' theme]] in alien gibberish.

* ''VideoGame/Payday2'' has this, but under very specific circumstances. Selecting the song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MdgtyMpBCI "Ode to Greed"]] at the menu will greet you with Orchestral Bombing initially, but as soon as Captain Winters spawns, it dynamically changes from being purely orchestral to playing its [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTHqz6JsfCc Latin Counterpart]], which features truly epic Latin Chanting that accompanies you until you Defeat Winters.
