*** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mb-Lhkm93pI main boss theme]] is 16-beat patterns (3+3+3+3+2+2, or two bars of 6/8 plus a bar of 4/8) for much of the music, and the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KH40gYZhwWI AtmaWeapon / Goddess Statue]] fight music is in 8-beat patterns (3+3+2). Both are great tension-building rhythms, and make for good listening even when you hear the things many times and often for multiple iterations in a single fight.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdyRuGz0tIM 100% minimoo-G]] is even worse. Songs in ''IIDX'' usually have the proper markings for measures, even if they're in a non-4/4 time signature or change signature at some point. This song? NO MARKINGS.

* Mild example in the first movement ("''Seventeen Come Sunday''") of Ralph Vaughn Williams's suite ''English Folk Song Suite''. Approximately half of the orchestra (higher-pitched instruments such as flutes and violins) plays a 6/8 melody over the top of the lower-pitched instruments, who play a contrasting counter-melody in 2/4 time.



* The first movement ("Seventeen Come Sunday") of Ralph Vaughn Williams's suite English Folk Song Suite has an interesting section in the middle, where approximately half of the orchestra (higher-pitched instruments such as flutes and violins) plays a 6/8 melody over the top of the lower-pitched instruments, who play a contrasting counter-melody in 2/4 time.

* ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' has "Meet Me Inside", which starts out in 7/4 and switches over to common time when the action has died down.

* Electronic music giants Autechre sometimes delve into unusual time signatures - "Drane" from ''Peel Session'' and "Cichli" from ''Chiastic Slide'' are in 10/4, while "777" from ''[=LP5=]'' is 7/8. The melody from "Slip on Amber" also seems to follow an odd signature. They also use a certain polyrhythm, in which the song assumes a straight 4/4 rhythm and expected four measures throughout the track, except for the bass drum pattern which only follows ''three'' measures, leading to interesting combinations. Listen to "Rotar" from ''Tri Repetae'' and "Cichli" from ''Chiastic Slide'' for examples.
