** The {{Crossover}} movies for both ''Kamen Rider'' by itself and its team-ups with ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' tend to use the theme song for every show at appropriate moments. However, the cake has to go to ''Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders'', which doesn't simply use the original theme songs but makes a medley out of them, starting with [[Series/KamenRiderBuild Be The One]] before transitioning to [[Series/KamenRiderExAid EXCITE]], [[Series/KamenRiderGhost We Think, Therefore We Are]], [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Switch On!]], [[Series/KamenRiderGaim Just Live More]], and [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Anything Goes!]] before going back to Be The One for the finish.

* ''Film/IronMan'' had great fun with this, playing the driving guitars of the hero's theme and then stopping the music abruptly when circumstances changed. Best example would be [[spoiler:our hero taking out a group of terrorists and flying along with music blaring until he takes a tank round to the face and crashes. He stands up, fires with disdain a tiny little rocket, and turns around to walk away. Looking back, we see the tank explode dramatically and the music picks up right where it left off.]]
** And the literal powering up scene. Stark has decided enough is Enough and decides to go to settle the situation in Gulmira, personally. As Stark stands in the middle of his workshop the floor opens up and numerous robot arms apply his Mark III armor, now with iconic red and gold scheme. The track that plays is appropriately titled "Iron Man", on the soundtrack by Ramin Djawadi.
** Similar moment, although with a different soundtrack, in Iron Man 2, accompanying the racetrack fight.

** The music in ''Film/{{Thor}}'' kicks into high gear when the eponymous hero[[spoiler:'s powers are restored at the end and he]] proceeds to kick major ass. Also kicks into high gear as his father Odin uses ''his'' powers [[spoiler:and prepares to banish Thor from Asgard.]]
** Invoked in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'': When Iron Man arrives on the scene, he hacks the nearest speaker system (which happens to be Black Widow's jet) to play Music/{{ACDC}}.
*** Later on in the film, we hear a triumphant version of the film's main theme once the Avengers finally assemble as a team for the first time during the climax in New York.
** ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'' has [[Music/FleetwoodMac "The Chain"]] start playing again as Peter learns to harness his godlike powers and get a HeroicSecondWind.
** Similarly, in ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' when Thor activates his true power against Hela and turns her army into dust, [[Music/LedZeppelin "The Immigrant Song"]] plays.
** The Avengers theme plays a lot in ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' but the two biggest cases of this are when Captain America first appears and beats Proxima Midnight and when Thor arrives with Stormbreaker and [[CurbstompBattle curbstomps]] [[OneManArmy an army of Outriders]].

** Has been lovingly taken up by ''TopGear'', who have used it repeatedly when doing something particularly A-Team-y to their vehicles. Has gotten to the point that Clarkson sequed into an ATeamMontage by saying, "And then it was time to cue the music ..."

*** A reprise of the latter is used in BorutoNarutoTheMovie when Naruto and Sasuke team up in an over-the-top climatic fight with the movie's main villain.

* Almost the entire last episode of ''Anime/StellviaOfTheUniverse'' is accompanied by various theme music pieces, including the OP. The [[CrowningMomentOfAwesomeAnime sheer awesome]] of its GrandFinale takes more than words to convey. ''Stellvia'' actually uses its opening theme like this several times in the series... and the first time, it even gets subverted.
