* In the episode [[Recap/SpongeBobSquarePantsS2E15TheSecretBoxBandGeeks "Band Geeks"]], Squidward and the Bikini Bottom citizens are practicing in a marching band. Squidward tells the flag spinners in the front to spin the flag faster, and eventually, so fast that they fly and collide with a zeppelin, which explodes. The trumpeter of the band then plays "Taps" as the rest of them hold their hats on their chest, except for Squidward who just goes into a TroubledFetalPosition.
* In [[Recap/SpongeBobSquarePantsS5E10TheSplinterSlideWhistleStooges "Slide Whistle Stooges"]], after Squidward crashes the gasoline truck he's been steering, Spongebob and Patrick play Taps using slide whistles.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBraveLittleToaster'', the main characters - a bunch of household appliances - are first seen remaining in an abandoned house, and awaiting eagerly the return of a kid who used to live there and who they consider their Master. However, when one day they see someone hammering a "For Sale" sign into the ground in front of their house, Radio starts playing Taps, realizing that any hopes for the Master's return just died.
** In one version of two dubs in Czech and Dutch, Radio plays Chopin's funeral march instead.

As the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taps Taps article]] on ThatOtherWiki states, Taps is a musical piece sounded at dusk, and at funerals, particularly by the U.S. military. It is sounded during flag ceremonies and funerals, on single bugle or trumpet, and often at Boy Scout, Girl Scout and Girl Guide meetings and camps.

* In the movie adaptation of ''Literature/WarHorse'', there are a MomentOfSilence and subtle PlayingTheHeartStrings setting in shortly before [[spoiler: Captain Nicholls is shot]] during the cavalry charge. Seconds later, when you see [[spoiler: [[KilledOffscreen the riderless horse]] running through the forest]], Taps are starting to play.

to:

* SerialKiller Milton Pike's leitmotif in ''VideoGame/ShadowMan'' begins with a haunting, hollow rendition of Taps that fades into the sounds of distant radio chatter, machine-gun fire and screams (Pike was a Vietnam Vet before taking up his gruesome hobby).
