* Also present in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}''. When a Covenant vehicle is destroyed (except for Brute manufactured ones) it will explode once then almost invariably produce a strange whine and explode again. This is justified as the vehicle's plasma coil going critical.

* ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' had the dream sequence where Sarah Connor imagines herself getting killed by a nuclear weapon fired by Skynet: First there is a blinding light and a heat wave, causing the everything to catch fire. Then comes the shockwave with accompanying sound and mushroom cloud, which flattens buildings, throws cars around, uproots trees and causes the scarred remains of people to scatter into the air like leaves.

Added DiffLines:

->''...there's an instant, just before a shell lands, when it seems to suck all the air up in its wake. This is an illusion, of course; shelling happens far to quickly for that. But there's a split second of intense quiet, together with the feeling of being in a vacuum, unable to take a breath; then there's the huge sound of the explosion, momentarily deafening you, making the ground tremble beneath your feet, shattering glass in windows all around you, followed by a swiftly rising plume of smoke and debris that fills your eyes, your nose, and your mouth with foul-smelling grit and the acrid stench of high explosive. Then, finally, comes the spine-tingling clickety-clack of bits of red-hot shrapnel, shattered stone, and odd pieces of plumbing landing. But all this takes place in a fraction of a second, really; it's just that the mind slows things down.''

* In one of the ''StarWars'' prequels, Jango Fett uses "seismic charges" against Obi-Wan. Before they explode, there is a second of complete silence. Even the [[SpaceIsNoisy audible silence of space]] stops for a moment.

* ''Film/TheMatrix'' is a heavy user of this trope. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] to some extent as a side-effect of the Matrix's processors being unable to keep up with the unanticipated actions of the heroes.
** In the first movie, the glass warped visibly and audibly when the helicopter crashed into the building.

* In ''{{Titan AE}}'' the Drej PlanetKiller first turns on a targeting/focusing beam, then hits the planet with an energy burst, causing shockwaves to ripple around the planet surface while the seas boil and the continents burn, and finally [[EarthShatteringKaboom the entire planet erupts]] like a volcano, shattering it to tectonic-plate-sized pieces.

*** There is a moment of silence after Tyreal charges up the sword (and a slowmotion effect when he throws it) that reaches its pinnacle when the words enters the stone. Then the dimensions around the stone start to ripple.
