* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. Especially with songs such as "Brothers In Arms/Follow Our Brothers", "On/Behold A Pale Horse", "Drumrun"(during the escape from The Maw), "Earth City"(its rollicking and [[UncommonTime irregular]] rhythm fits with the movements of the Scarab walker), "Delta Halo Suite: Leonidas"(heard in ''Halo 2'' during the gondola rides on Regret, and again in ''Halo 3'' during the air battle on The Covenant), "Blow Me Away"(during the climactic battle on the Gravemind mission), "This Is Our Land", "This is the Hour" and "Finish The Fight" (the music in the original Halo 3 advertisement).
** The [[ThemeTune Halo Theme]], naturally. It becomes even more bombastic in Halo 3 as "Greatest Journey" (the final escape theme), when Martin O'Donnell swapped out the first game's synthesizers with a live orchestra.

** Two words: Cannons firing. That's not a glib comment; that's actually ''part of the musical instruction''. Yes, the piece, when properly performed, actually uses ''cannons'' as part of the orchestra. Ya know, since the 1812 Overture was originally written to mark Russia valiantly defending Moscow against Napoleon's seemingly unstoppable horde. Which makes it even ''more'' [[AwesomeMusic/Classical awesome]]!

* ''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.
