* In ''Film/TheRevenant'', this happens towards the end of the opening BigBadassBattleSequence. The battle sound drowns out, leaving us with the horrible visuals of the massacre along with a low-pitched sound from the soundtrack.

* A similar concept is the subject of the Australian film ''Film/{{Noise}}'' (2007), about a police officer who suffers from tinnitus due to psychological damage from witnessing the aftermath of a massacre.

* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. Root after she's momentarily stunned during a truck crash in "Mors Praematura", but it segues immediately into the ClimacticMusic as she wakes up and starts kicking ass.

Played straight in "Matsya Nyaya", when a bomb goes off underneath an armoured car Reese is guarding.

* Played with in ''Film/WelcomeToThePunch'' (2013). A detective tackles a civilian at gunpoint whom he mistook for the criminal who shoot him three years ago, an event from which he's still traumatized. His partner can be heard faintly yelling at him to stop even though she's right next to them, but she's drowned out by a ringing sound (he was shot in a concrete tunnel, so the temporary deafness may be a flashback).

* In ''VideoGame/CallOfCthulhuDarkCornersOfTheEarth'' this is invoked deliberately in the final battle, as you must deafen yourself from the final boss' song by blasting your [[TheBFG BFG]] on a huge gong while standing next to it, but avoided at other times despite of having extremely realistic weapons in every other way, lacking an ammo counter and forcing the player to rely on the iron sights.

* Invoked in the BBC {{docudrama}} ''{{Krakatoa}}'', during the moment of the famous [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1883_eruption_of_Krakatoa#Climactic_phase loudest noise recorded in historic times]]. In the film, people kilometers away find themselves momentarily deafened with a ringing in their ears that gradually fades.

* Used in the ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Return of the King'' when a lightning strikes from the spire of Minas Morgul, everything goes quiet in the middle of the massive crack of thunder that accompanies it, indicating that it's so loud that the characters are briefly deafened by it.
