* The ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' episode ''The Test'' has this in Pearl's room, where Steven must step on four lights in the correct order to open up the stairs. Afterwards, he must then dodge swinging axes. When Steven found out that Garnet's room was rigged, Steven returned to Pearl's room, where he found out that the axes phased through him, and that the same panels always allowed the stairs to open regardless if he stepped on the right panels or not.
--->'''Steven:''' It didn't even matter?!

* Near the end of ''VideoGame/GodOfWar 3'', there's a puzzle that doesn't even bother trying to hide what it is, as the "notes" are copies of the Playstation's four main buttons and the tune you play is the franchise's {{Leitmotif}}.

* One way of getting control of the Nautilus in the game ''ReturnToMysteriousIsland'' involved playing a few bars of music solely on the black keys of the Nautilus's organ (as, apparently, Captain Nemo specialized in playing music that required only the black keys).

* In ''Killashandra'', part of Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's ''Crystal Singer'' series, the lock hiding the illegal computer equipment inside the organ is opened by playing a (supposedly) original melody. Fortunately, the protagonist knows Beethoven's fifth symphony, and can play the opening line "accidentally" while tuning it.

* In "Suckers," an episode of ''Series/{{CSI}}'' they investigated the robbery of a hotel vault. At the end Grissom realises that [[spoiler: the lock was programmed so the tones of the numerical keys would tap out the melody for "Three Little Maids From School" from ''TheMikado''. A tune that would be familiar to the thieves; the manager was co-operating with them to carry out an insurance scam]].

* ''Schizm:MysteriousJourney'' runs in a similar vein as the above, with a set of Argilan prayer grinders. After an alien priest shows up and speaks a string of words that open a hidden door, you have to play it back using these devices.

* ''NancyDrew:TheDeadlyDevice'' includes a puzzle where you have to first build a circuit board for a small tesla coil, and then program it to play a series of notes [[spoiler: revealed in Niko's notebook]]. Amusingly, you get an award for making the coil play actual music. Bonus points that this is a real life thing, called a "Zeusaphone".

* An optional puzzle in ''Undertale'' features this, where you must play the first few notes of a tune heard in a room a little bit ahead on a piano. [[spoiler:The reward's only barely worth it, though.]]
* ''NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'': Unlocking the exit door to the First Class Cabin requires playing a piano. After collecting the sheet music, it's revealed that the piano is tuned incorrectly, so the actual puzzle is matching the proper notes to their altered locations. It's actually one of the easiest puzzles in the game, as the set of keys you're able to choose from is quite small, and after playing the first line correctly, the game completes the rest of the song for you. Notable in that the piece of music played isn't a character theme, scare chord, or in any way related to the game's soundtrack, but the Westminster Chimes. This prompts a comment from one of your companions as to Zero's motives and nothing else.

** ''Myst IV'' involves using Sirrus' Spider Throne to vibrate four different pieces of minerals, so that all of them being pushed out of their literal "locks" deploys a bridge [[spoiler: to a bomb factory.]] The musical element comes from the tones Spire's crystals give off when their electrical charge fades, which the Throne channels via huge cables within the Age.
