* ''VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey'' games will often precede the current RandomEncounters theme with a jarring riff if the encounter starts off with an enemy ambush.

* ''VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey'' games will often precede the current RandomEncounters theme with a jarring riff if the encounter starts off with an enemy ambush. Given that the series is known for its [[NintendoHard already-unrelenting difficulty]], it basically means "prepare to die."

* Every ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' game has a "Variation" version of the game's "Pursuit" theme, which starts off with a sting before going immediately into the refrain of the track. To compare, the standard version starts with a few measures of buildup before going into the refrain.

It usually plays when the [[PlayerCharacter player attorney]] had a defense that triggered the normal Pursuit theme, got that shot down, only to find new evidence that gets their momentum going again.

* There is one the [[TheMovie movie adapation]] of ''VisualNovel/{{AIR}}'' , right before [[spoiler: Misuzu dies in the arms of her adoptive mother]]. It is generally considered very ill-placed, since instead of heightening the drama it diminishes it by cutting off the very sad music leading up to the moment. It is luckily not used in either the [[VisualNovel game]] or the television series.

* Similar to the ''Series/DoctorWho'' example above, both ''Series/EastEnders'' and ''Series/TheBill'' have had very distinctive "drumbeat" stings, which would punctuate the final scene of an episode at the point of a cliffhanger, and lead into the credits.

* WesternAnimation/ReadyJetGo episode "Diggin' Earth" Sunspot does it by drumming the air (aliens!) then hitting a shot blade as a cymbal. A response to Dr. Rafferty's "groundbreaking project" quip.

* Older [[AppleMacintosh Macintosh]] computers sometimes play a Sting (the "Chimes of Death") when they fail a crucial hardware check on boot, with the notes of the ditty telling a savvy tech what's wrong even when video doesn't work
