Added DiffLines:

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', Mordecai and Rigby watch a horror movie with "the most dramatic stings ever". Scary things happen one right after another, and a sting is played after each one. After the TV remote breaks Benson's windshield, the same sting is heard, causing Rigby to remark, "We probably should have turned the movie off."

Compare ScreamerTrailer. Do not confuse with TheStinger. Or with the ''musician'' [[Music/ThePolice Sting]], or the ''{{professional wrestl|ing}}er '' Wrestling/{{Sting}} or the film ''Film/TheSting''. Or that dagger used by [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Frodo and his Uncle]], [[OverlyLongGag or the police tactic of pretending to be a customer for drug salesmen or prostitutes, or the pain, action, or body part that occurs at the back of a bee or wasp.]]

* Before his ''ComicBook/SevenSoldiers'' reboot, Klarion the Witch-Boy demanded that people refer to him as "Klarion... bum bum BUM... the Witch-Boy". He even refused to help characters who did not insert the dramatic sting. (You should not be surprised that PeterDavid came up with this.)

* ''TheElectricCompany'' had a cool collection of these to conclude skits. A few were specific to certain themes, such as for {{Western}} (trumpet sounding like a horse whinny) or medieval parodies ({{Parody}} of BaroqueMusic, with concluding {{Rimshot}}-like bell). Even Fargo North Decoder had one that parodied the opening theme for the sketch.

* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' had a highly distinctive one, snipped out of the first few bars of the show's theme tune: an eight-note phrase in the pentatonic minor scale played on slap electric bass, accompanied by some percussive noises.

* ''{{Birdz}}'' had a dissonant four-note synth riff that basically served as the equivalent of "Wah wah wah" horns.
