* From the show ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' there is the episode ''Operation: A.R.C.H.I.V.E.'', which details the creation of adults and the war that children and adults fought so that both could get their respective rights. Granted, the thing is controversial since [[AudienceAlienatingPremise it should be separated from the general continuity of the series in order to get the maximum enjoyment out of it]], but that is not what makes it this trope. What makes it this trope comes after the narrator (Numbuh 1) proves that adults and children do not live happily by using a TheEndOrIsIt styled motive and showing after it the presence of schools which should let children forget about everything, after which you get disturbing image after disturbing image with narration detailing how gruesomely children are getting brainwashed by them until the teacher for which the speech is given demands that Numbuh 1 stops speaking so that he can give him a D- - for all of the ( InUniverse ) alleged lies he taught to those children. The show was already known for [[NightmareFuel/CodenameKidsNextDoor its outright gruesome imagery and themes]], but this is unbelievably hard to watch even by the standards of the very show.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPxgi-PiNFE opening credits]] for ''Film/EnterTheVoid''. Creator/QuentinTarantino called them the best opening credits to a movie ever.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPxgi-PiNFE opening credits]] for ''Film/EnterTheVoid''. Creator/QuentinTarantino called them Basically the best opening credits entirety of ''Film/EnterTheVoid''; the cinematography is amazing, don't get us wrong, but at times can only be described as an epileptic's fever dream. There are several times throughout the film dedicated to strobing visuals, such as when the camera zooms in on a movie ever.hexagonal light that ''just so happens'' to be flashing red and blue.



* ''Film/{{Irreversible}}'' is never particularly pleasant, but the ending elevates this up to an art form. The last minute or so is the screen flashing rapidly from black to white while a positively sickening sound plays. Even if you aren't epileptic, you will ''not'' be feeling great after the ending.

* While playing ''VideoGame/SCPContainmentBreach'', it's recommended to lower your volume whenever you encounter [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-066 SCP-066]] (Eric's Toy). As mentioned on the SCP article, the damn thing will blare Beethoven at super loud decimals, and the game is ''no'' exception to that.

* During Joel of WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}}'s playthrough of a DOS ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven'' video game, the title screen has an ear-bleeding loud and clipped version of "You Can't Keep a Good Dog Down" playing, startling both Joel (who literally starts screaming in pain) and his viewers.

* A growing problem with widespread adoption of [[ThreeDMovie 3-D films]] and TV sets is that they have a tendency to cause eye strain and even motion sickness in a large minority of viewers.

* Shows up twice in ''CorpseParty Blood Drive'', where the game plays music so loud that it actually sounds distorted in the gym and once while wandering Heavenly Host. Considering that it's recommended that you play with headphones to give it a more eerie atmosphere, it will ''destroy'' the ear drums of anyone unfortunate enough to actually use them during that moment.

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaWIR0J-KNw logo for 3-G Home Video]] is infamous for its ''extremely'' loud whooshing sound.

* In a similar vein is UAV Corporation's VanityPlate, which isn't nearly as sudden but still ear-shatteringly loud.

* Most [[VanityPlate production logos]] from the 1970s and early 1980s, particularly those by Viacom ("[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10LDTLjEPDM The V of Doom]]"), Columbia/Screen Gems ("[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQ7zZRud1B0 The S From Hell]]"), and Paramount ("[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5fVJwc8hiE The Closet Killer]]" or "The Peak of Fear"). The combination of bombastic synthesized jingles and symbols that seem to charge toward the screen caused no end of distress for young children, who still grit their teeth through the logos as adults. Fortunately, these logos were retired in favor of less frightening ones in the late 1980s. Paramount went one step further by replacing the Peak of Fear in its legacy series, first with a full color, computer-rendered mountain, then with the CBS Syndication logo. You actually have to hunt for a scary Paramount logo on television these days, and frankly, who would want to do that to themselves?

* Music/DirEnGrey are no strangers to this trope, both in the visual department and in the actual music as well. Particular notorious audio examples include Kyo's ear-piercing screams in "Agitated Screams of Maggots" (the entire song), "Kodou" (right after a brief pause), and "Pink Killer" (Kyo sounds like he's being brutally tortured during the last 30 seconds or so as the music fades and what remains is his very loud shriek.

* Funeral doom is a different take on this trope from most DeathMetal and BlackMetal. It's played at a glacially slow pace with pretty much the gloomiest instrumentation possible, and the only vocals are [[HarshVocals incomprehensibly low growls]]. It's a good example showing that music doesn't have to be fast to be heavy. Take a listen to the song "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2ecOWvif9g The March and the Stream]]" from pioneering funeral doom band Music/{{Skepticism}}.
