* ''PinkyElmyraAndTheBrain'' have a humorous take on this when an episode has a secret conspiracy Christopher Walken look-alike. His appearance was preceded by chanting of an incongruous group of words, always ending in "Lactose!" I.E. "Rialto, Ontario, Gluteus Maximus, LACTOSE!"

* Inversion: "Orchestral metal" group Trans-Siberian Orchesta's rock opera ''Beethoven's Last Night'' features some chanting of this kind, but it's generally uplifting and set to a variation of ''Ode to Joy''. The piece has the [[LudwigVanBeethoven titular composer]] reflecting on his life and career, and how his music has affected the world.

* Once a player goes to the third level ($50,000 and beyond) on the game show ''WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire'', the background thinking music starts to sounds more and more dramatic, with a choir chant playing over top of the music. However, the background music for the $1,000,000 question is a complete subversion, instead consisting of just a low, deep bass note, a drum hit, and a heartbeat.

* The first half of "Armageddon" in ''[[Animation/TheMindsEye The Gate to the Mind's Eye]]'' features a sinister-sounding man singing in Latin. In translation, featured in the CD booklet, he's singing about the horrors of Armageddon. Some segments of the song also feature the more traditional background chanting.

* ''Manga/DeathNote'' simply loves OminousLatinChanting, frequently employing it to make the act of writing a name in a notebook and eating potato chips [[MundaneMadeAwesome epic]]. Whoever's name is written in the notebook will ''die'' 40 seconds later, so it is kind of an ominous moment when Light puts a name down. In fact, many of the epic Latin pieces in ''Manga/DeathNote'' have the lyrics of a Latin requiem mass. The song that plays during [[spoiler: the four-and-a-half-year timeskip montage]], for instance, is a ''Dies Irae'', which is about Judgement Day, fitting how [[AGodAmI Light]] imposes Judgement on criminals and the rotten (though somehow, it doesn't include the "liber scriptus" verse). Even in the more calm moments you have the ''Kyrie Eleison'' chant, which may as well be the anime's theme.

It plays again when Dale, inspecting his drum set - suspecting it to have been tampered with - finds one of his drumsticks damaged. Cue the quarrel.
* John Barry's music for ''Film/TheLionInWinter'' makes liberal use of OminousLatinChanting.
* The soundtrack for ''Film/{{Glory}}'' is made up of something that ''sounds'' like OminousLatinChanting, but it's also kind of pretty. Special mention goes to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-G4xAijMq4 Charging Fort Wagner]].

* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'': "Into The Lion's Den", the climax (if not the [[SeasonFinale finale]]) of the third season, had two original tracks of OminousLatinChanting, "Salve Me" and "Lacrimosa". Both are available at [[http://www.scifi.com/farscape/journeylogs/season3/lionsdenpt2.html the official website]], and both are CrowningMusicOfAwesome.
* Played with in ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz'' in which a CorruptCorporateExecutive (though to be fair, the entire organization was corrupt too) played OminousLatinChanting on a personal CD player in his office whenever he was on the job. The situation didn't matter; he could be planning world domination or just relaxing after a hard hour's work, but the Chanting would still be belting out at full volume. Thanks to the show having a serious tone 99% of the time, this came off as more creepy than humorous.

* Power/thrash metal band Iced Earth has the 16-minute epic ''Dante's Inferno'', based on, well, [[Literature/TheDivineComedy Dante's Inferno]].

* Music/{{Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart}}'s "Dies Irae" from the ''Requiem'' gets almost as much play as "O Fortuna" in dramatic situations. Unlike most of the pieces on this page, though, it has the thematic weight to match its ominous tone when translated: the lyrics are describing the Apocalypse.
* In fact, the "Dies Irae" from practically ''any'' Requiem Mass qualifies by ''definition'' as OminousLatinChanting. ''Especially'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDFFHaz9GsY Verdi.]]

It's worth noting, though, that said piece was composed by Nobuo Uematsu, the famed ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' composer responsible for the aforementioned "One-Winged Angel" and "Liberi Fatali".
