** In "Anne", Buffy has run away to Los Angeles, in her HeroicBSOD after Angel's death, working at a diner to pay the bills. In one scene Buffy waits on two trucker types. She instructs Trucker #1 to pay at the counter, and he offers to [[DoubleEntendre pay in trade]]. Trucker #2 slaps Buffy's behind as she walks away. She glares over her shoulder, and from the music we're meant to think an ass-kicking is imminent, but instead she keeps walking.

** In "Fear Itself", the MonsterOfTheWeek turns out to be a [[BigLittleMan lot smaller than anticipated]], so Buffy stomps it like a bug. At the end of the episode, Giles is reading up on the monster in his TomeOfEldritchLore and suddenly exclaims (to accompanying dramatic music) that [[DontCelebrateJustYet he made a terrible mistake]]...because the picture of the monster is labelled, "Actual size".

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', the same thing happens with Armagohma. Link destroys it, the epic victory music plays, Link does that badass sword sheathe and... Armagohma's not dead. The music promptly dies, though what's left of the monster is laughably easy to defeat.

* ''WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridge'': During the climactic battle with [[spoiler:Heathcliff]], the intro music is allowed to play for the duration of the battle... at which point Kirito's sword breaks.

* Another ''Franchise/StarWars'' example occurs in ''Film/TheLastJedi'': The music gets dramatic as Finn prepares to sacrifice himself by ramming the siege cannon, only for Rose to save him at the last minute

* During Kira Yamato's first intervention in Gundam Seed Destiny "Meteor" his song that played when he was doing something heroic in the first series starts to play as he disables mobile suits and stops the battle without hurting anyone, as per usual, only to suddenly stop when Heine (a sympathetic character) is suddenly killed from behind by another character after Kira disables him, suddenly changing the POV from Kira helping everyone, to Kira making everything worse. In fact you can tell if Kira's actions are meant to be viewed as heroic by how the music is. In his later interventions where he knows he caused problems last time but does it again anyway, and rather cruelly wrecks Athrun when he tells him he's not helping he has rather sinister music playing. A few episodes later, when he goes out of his way to rescue civilians from the Destroy Gundam, he gets his heroic music back.

In fact worse]]. Hell, you can tell if Kira's actions are meant to be viewed as heroic by how heroic the music is. In sounds. He has some pretty sinister music playing during his later interventions battles where he knows he caused problems last time but does it again anyway, goes straight in while acknowledging his previous failure, and especially when he rather cruelly wrecks Athrun when he tells him Kira he's not helping he has rather sinister music playing. A few episodes later, when helping. When he goes out of his way to rescue civilians from the Destroy Gundam, he gets his heroic music back.

Not to be confused with MusicalisInterruptus, which is where ''vocal'' music, rather than background music, is interrupted.

* In ''Manga/CromartieHighSchool'', "[[NoNameGiven Fred]][[{{Queen}} die]]"'s leitmotif is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_skhTIY_Ik this song]], usually played up to the 3rd or 4th drum roll whenever he suddenly appears. Once, he startled someone, who shut the door on him, cutting off the music before the second bar was finished.
