* ''{{Literature/Redwall}}'': In ''Triss'', a constant source of NightmareFuel is something that's only heralded by a sickly sweet smell, and causes even two certified badasses like Skipper and Log-A-Log to run like hell. It turns out to be three huge adders conjoined near their tails in early age near the tails, the smell coming from their decaying flesh.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'': In "Legends of the Mall", Metalmouth's approach was heralded by the sound of his metal dentures picking up radio signals and playing music. Oddly, the only thing they ever seemed to play was Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun".

* ''VideoGame/StarcraftII'': Terrans can build a sensor tower that detects enemy presence in a huge radius. But since it doesn't reveal FogOfWar, there's no way of knowing what types of units they are, so what looks like a huge army may be be padded out with non-combat units.


Added DiffLines:

** The Soviet equivalent were the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_Witches Night Witches]]: (female) pilots who flew bombing missions by gliding over the enemy lines at night, so the only sound heard was the engine while taking off, [[ParanoiaFuel then silence]].

* 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.

* In WWII, the German Stuka dive bomber had so-called "Jericho Trumpet" sirens (known on this wiki as the StukaScream), driven by the propeller when diving. This let everyone know that ThoseWackyNazis were about to ruin your day, and that there was nothing you could do about it.

* In ''Film/KongSkullIsland'', when a Skullcrawler eats a camera. Just before it attacks again, the humans can not only hear the camera flickering, but they can see the flashes as well.

* 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.
