* In ''Film/JurassicParkIII'', a ''Spinosaurus'' eats a man who's carrying a satellite phone. The phone is later heard ringing just before another attack, and again from a gigantic pile of dinosaur poop. [[GeniusBonus Bonus points]] since the ''Spinosaurus'' may have actually been the dinosaur equivalent of a crocodile.

* One particularly tragic example was invoked in certain regions of India. "Untouchables" (people of "unclean" castes, such as garbage collectors or leatherworkers) were generally despised, and people feared that even interacting with them would corrupt one's spiritual energy. Therefore, when Untouchables left their segregated communities and entered areas with other people, they had to sound a wooden clapper to warn others to get out of the way.

* Throughout the ''Franchise/SilentHill'' games, the protagonists have radioes which emit static whenever monsters are near--though it's never clear when exactly will they pop up.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}},'' a second and a half before a Creeper explodes, you can hear the hiss of gunpowder igniting inside its body. This is especially scary because other than that hiss, Creepers are essentially silent. Meaning you have no warning other than a second and a half of hissing before the Creeper explodes, destroying you (or at best severely depleting your health) and whatever you were building at the moment.

* In WWII, the German Stuka dive bomber had attached the so-called "Jerico Trumpet" Sirens, Driven by the propeller when diving. This let everyone know that the Nazi war machine was about to ruin their day, and that there was nothing you could do about it.
