* ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' initially averted this trope (favoring AutobotsRockOut instead), but later installments went ''really'' wide with it. Examples are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHQJVdRIdXU Horobi no Uta]] from ''Anime/MacrossZero'''s final battle and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Exg-zf2nouQ several]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRBlX-7qvzU other]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADIWb6Lrszo tracks]] from ''Anime/MacrossFrontier''.

* ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' usually averts this trope but the last two installments went ''really'' wide with it. Examples are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHQJVdRIdXU Horobi no Uta]] from ''Zero'''s final battle and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Exg-zf2nouQ several]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRBlX-7qvzU other]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADIWb6Lrszo tracks]] from ''Frontier''.

* Spoofed on ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' in a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AG184YzkDX8 sketch]] that shows an orchestra in a field playing the "Blue Danube Waltz." [[RuleOfFunny For no particular reason]], in each successive musical phrase another musician [[StuffBlowingUp blows up]].



* Creator/LudwigVanBeethoven was probably the first one to use the trope. His ''Eroica'' symphony opens with two full orchestral chords, to underline this point (Timpani included).

His overture "Wellington's Victory" plays it even more literally, with the score calling for muskets and artillery sound effects to represent the battle.

* This musical style is in full effect during Nanoha's final battle with Fate in the first ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' movie. Better yet, the first half of the heroine's revised {{Leitmotif}} is strongly reminiscent of Music/GustavHolst's ''Mars, the Bringer of War''. Specifically, the part which JohnWilliams also borrowed for the very first space battle in ''Film/StarWars: Film/ANewHope''...

* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' had its space battle episode (the ShoutOut to ''UchuuSenkanYamato'') employ this trope with Shostakovich's ''Leningrad Symphony''. Fittingly, the "training" course that they went through was set to the almost-comical, waddling march at the end of the first movement.

* The soundtrack to ''VideoGame/LegacyOfTheVoid'' makes liberal use of this trope. Standout examples include:

* VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil has a powerful soundtrack that is [[http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2011/03/08/download-the-beyond-good-amp-evil-soundtrack-for-free.aspx completely downloadable on the web]]. The very first fight that Jade has involves a big stick, several aliens and a choir of [[OminousLatinChanting pissed-off angels singing background]] for her. The final fight raised this UpToEleven.

* In ''ShadowOfTheColossus'', all of the music is orchestrated. It also only starts playing when you encounter the Colossi.
* Subverted by ''{{Psychonauts}}'', which has the lighter portions of the ''1812 Overture'' playing during the Napoleonic board game level.
