* The main battle theme of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'', "Last Surprise", begins with a flamboyant string-based sting before the lyrics kick in.

* Parodied in ''WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail'' where Strong Bad shows ''Dangeresque 1: Dangeresque Too?''. All of the musical cues are [[NoBudget done by Strong Bad himself]]. Several stings show up when villains are introduced or even foreshadowed.

* ''PotterPuppetPals'': At the end of "Ron's Disease", [[spoiler:after Hagrid smacks Dumbledore with a cudgel with a [[RoboticReveal resounding clang]] and otherwise no apparent effect on Dumbledore, Harry exclaims (to a sting), "OHMYGOD, [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots he's an android]]!" Hagrid looks around in confusion, saying, "Wha-?" (to another sting). Dumbledore finally replies, "Yes, it's true, I am an android - a [[WordofGay gay]] android." What follows is a rather original LampshadeHanging of your typical Dun Dun DAAAH! sting, with the DAAH! lasting about five or six seconds.]]

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', Mordecai and Rigby watch a horror movie with "the most dramatic stings ever". Scary things happen one right after another, and a sting is played after each one. After the TV remote breaks Benson's windshield, the same sting is heard, causing Rigby to remark, "We probably should have turned the movie off."

Compare ScreamerTrailer. Do not confuse with TheStinger. Or with the ''musician'' [[Music/ThePolice Sting]], or the ''{{professional wrestl|ing}}er '' Wrestling/{{Sting}} or the film ''Film/TheSting''. Or that dagger used by [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Frodo and his Uncle]], [[OverlyLongGag or the police tactic of pretending to be a customer for drug salesmen or prostitutes, or the pain, action, or body part that occurs at the back of a bee or wasp.]]

* Before his ''ComicBook/SevenSoldiers'' reboot, Klarion the Witch-Boy demanded that people refer to him as "Klarion... bum bum BUM... the Witch-Boy". He even refused to help characters who did not insert the dramatic sting. (You should not be surprised that PeterDavid came up with this.)

* ''TheElectricCompany'' had a cool collection of these to conclude skits. A few were specific to certain themes, such as for {{Western}} (trumpet sounding like a horse whinny) or medieval parodies ({{Parody}} of BaroqueMusic, with concluding {{Rimshot}}-like bell). Even Fargo North Decoder had one that parodied the opening theme for the sketch.
