* Happens in the penultimate episode of ''Series/BreakingBad'', "Granite State", when Walt is his at his DarkestHour and about to surrender to the police, but happens to watch an interview with his old business partners, Gretchen and Elliott, who manage to seriously push his main BerserkButton by attacking his {{Pride}}, as they downplay his contributions to the Gray Matter company. As Walt's fury grows as he watches the interview, resulting in him changing his mind about surrendering himself, the show's main theme song starts kicking for the first and only time during an episode, and the "power-up" lasts Walt until the very end of the finale.

* In ''[[PhantasyStar Phantasy Star III]]'', the world map theme adds instruments and background to the main melody as more characters join your party. However, if the main character of the generation falls in combat, a much more tense and negative tune plays until said character is resurrected.

** SRW manages to take this to a true extreme in ''Alpha 3'' when a song composed as a collaboration between [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Minmay]] and Basara (in the story, at least) actually saves the day in [[spoiler: the final stage, by galvanizing the heroes against a wave of malice that comes from the series' ultimate BigBad.]] It's no coincidence that the song was created in RealLife by JAMProject for that game.

* In the console version of ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', if a player performs Bang Shishigami's Furinkazan super move, the music suddenly changes to a brand-new song by [[JAMProject Hironobu Kageyama]] called "Omae no Tetsui ni Kugi wo Ute". It's an over-the-top song about how much of a HotBlooded badass Bang is. And it is ''[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome awesome.]]''

* This happens twice in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar'', both times when an otherwise NighInvulnerable boss is [[AttackItsWeakPoint opened up to your attacks]]. First, when you use a [[spoiler:sponge]] to send the [[DanceBattler musically-inclined]] Gooper Blooper's poison back at him, the music switches to a remix of the original ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' theme. Then, much later, after [[spoiler:Kersti sacrifices herself to give Mario the power to defeat Bowser]], a triumphant version of the series' invincibility theme [[spoiler:mixed with Kersti's {{Leitmotif}}]] starts up.

* Whenever {{Mario}} (and/or Luigi) powered up in ''Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'', the transformation was accompanied by the "level clear" fanfare from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1''.

* ''[[FateExtra Fate/Extra]]'' does this for all three playable servants, whenever a character uses their [[SuperMode Noble Phantasm]] the scenery changes and their personal {{leitmotif}} plays for the duration.

** The season 1 finale features a full-length version of the [[AnimeThemeSong opening song]] "Moonlight Densetsu") during the BeamOWar with [[TheManBehindTheMan Queen Metallia]], the DiC dubbed version of the scene used entitled "Carry On". Other songs featured are "Ai no Senshi", "La Soldier" (from the ''Sailor Moon R'' finale), and "Moon Revenge" (from the ''R'' movie). The last episode of ''Sailor Stars'' uses the season's opening "Sailor Star Song" in this manner.

Added DiffLines:

* Anime/CowboyBebop has an example of this trope in nearly every episode whenever there is a scene featuring hand-to-hand combat or an action sequence involving spacecraft. Although it is never the theme song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2rVnRwW0h8&list=PL65E33789AA7052BC&index Tank!]], it is always a frantic, chaotic, up-tempo jazz track of the same style, like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8wWa3O9cUo&index=2&list=PL65E33789AA7052BC Rush]].
