* ''Film/ApocalypseNow'' has a quite literal example, where "[[{{Music/RideOfTheValkyries}} Ride of the Valkyries]]" is blasted over the speakers of the choppers as Kilgore's forces attack a village controlled by Viet Cong.

* This musical style is in full effect during Nanoha's final battle with Fate in the first ''Anime/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''...

* ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'', in just about every flight sequence and several land sequences as well. Boss fights lean more towards AutobotsRockOut, though.

* ''VideoGame/Pikmin3'' uses orchestral music for particularly large-scale boss battles, a pretty sharp contrast from the lower-key, atmospheric themes heard in the rest of the game (and series).

In the final Mission of VideoGame/MassEffect 2, the score goes all out. First, there's the epic uplifting music during the space battle, then the score goes all out for the finale to bring the already awesome mission to a breathtaking close.

* Much of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'''s soundtrack is quiet and understated to fit the theme. Whenever you're fighting a boss monster, trying to shut down a [[HumongousMecha Divine Beast]], or ''especially'' storming Hyrule Castle, things get much more rousing.
