* Creator/TomLehrer takes this to deliberately ridiculous extremes in "We Will All Go Together When We Go," which changes keys after half of its ''verses'', getting into some very silly keys in the process.

* HallAndOates' "She's Gone" contains a series of steps in its final bridge that are not so much a gear change as the driver working through the gears after joining the highway.

* Many, ''many'' SonataArctica songs, ranging from half a step ("San Sebastian") to a perfect fourth ("Don't Say A Word"). "Wildfire" even goes ''down'' a minor third.

* ''VideoGame/TheIdolmaster'' has a lot of music so having a lot of examples of this trope is not a surprise. That said, one song stands out in having no fewer than ''ten'' of these modulations, both up and down: "Inferno", one of Chihaya Kisaragi's songs.

** Nintendo is fond of using this trope in this way: when bosses in VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy reach their last HP, the music restarts a half step higher; in every VideoGame/MarioKart game since VideoGame/MarioKartDS, the music goes up half a step when you are on your last lap.

* Undyne's theme in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' consists of two nearly-identical tracks -- "NGAHHH!", which plays during her pre-battle speech; and a slightly rearranged version called "Spear of Justice" that kicks in when the actual battle starts. The latter modulates up from G minor to G# minor after the first few lines to let you know that ''shit just got real, yo.'' Because it has to loop for the duration of the fight, it also has to modulate back down at some point, and manages to do so in an equally dramatic fashion. Oddly enough, "NGAHHH" started out at G# minor to begin with.

** Likewise, the final boss theme "Hopes and Dreams" starts in B-flat minor, modulates up to B minor partway through, then back down to B-flat minor for the loop. The TriumphantReprise "Save the World" is in B minor all the way through, having a similar effect.

* Inverted in the ForbiddenBroadway parody ''I Couldn't Hit The Note'', spoofing how Julie Andrews can't hit high notes anymore, the song keeps modulating [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdQ2yq-erIY down]].

* Music/TheyMightBeGiants' song "Birdhouse In Your Soul" employs this in much the same way as the above Beyoncé song, once between verses and several in a row during the ending repeat.
