* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' does this a lot particularly the numbers "Shipoopi" (taken directly from ''Theatre/TheMusicMan'', and just as bizarre there), "A Bag of Weed" ("Me Old Bamboo" from ''Film/ChittyChittyBangBang''), and "Mr. Booze".

* A few songs in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' feature this, like "At the Gala" from "The Best Night Ever" and "Smile, Smile, Smile" from "A Friend in Deed".
** Lampshaded by Rainbow, who finds musicals unrealistic. Then Rarity breaks into song, followed by the other four.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLorax'': the film begins with a musical number with the entire city. After they finish they go back to their regular routines, making it seem like they all stopped what they were doing to dance.

* The Pianist Zombie from ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies2ItsAboutTime''. When at least one on the battlefield and not stunned/frozen, they'll play a catchy piano music. All the basic cowboy zombies will burst into a dance, and periodically all of them will switch to a different lane at the same time.

* In ''WebAnimation/RWBY'' episode "Dance Dance Infiltration", Jaune leads team JNPR into one of these. ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi'' episode 23 jokes about that scene with the revelation that Red forced the team to drill for the number.

** Some fanworks have run with the idea that this is actually a documented natural phenomenon in Equestria, which makes at least as much sense as [[PaintingTheFrostOnWindows a manually operated day-night cycle and seasons that have to be changed by hand.]]

* ''Film/EncinoMan''. Partly subverted when Link's friends join him in his wild dance at the school prom and they aren't very well co-ordinated. Then the rest of the crowd pitch in and begin flawlessly executing choreographed moves that weren't even part of the original routine.

* {{Series/Sanctuary}}'s Kali, Part 2 plays with this: there's a scene where one of the main characters, trying to find Kali, remembers that she told him to dance earlier and starts dancing in the middle of a street in Mumbai. It looks like everyone else in the street has joined in, in a textbook example of this trope... until we cut away from his point of view, at which point it turns out that he's hallucinating the whole thing and everyone else there is staring at him like he's gone insane.
