The "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AlEvy0fJto Ride of the Valkyries]]" (German: "Ritt der Walküren", or "Walkürenritt", as the composer referred to it) is a fanfare-like orchestral music theme originating from Creator/RichardWagner's opera ''Die Walküre'' (''The {{Valkyrie|s}}''), which is a part of the cycle ''Der Ring Des Nibelungen'' (''Theatre/TheRingOfTheNibelung'').

* At Caltech, it's traditional to play "The Ride" very loud during finals week at 7 AM with the largest, loudest speakers available [[LameExcuse in order to make sure no one oversleeps]]. WARNING: Playing it at any other time (even on the same day) will get you stuffed into a shower if you're lucky.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'':
** ''Literature/DeathMasks'' has Miss Gard, a tall blonde Nordic woman, piloting a helicopter carrying Marcone, Harry, and a Knight of the Cross into battle. Harry [[InvokedTrope remarks that all they're missing is some Wagner]], and Gard obliges by playing the "Ride" on the radio.
** The short story "Heorot" (set after ''Death Masks'') confirms that Gard is in fact an ''actual'' valkyrie.
** The page quote comes from a later book (''Literature/SmallFavor''), when Gard arrives to the battle [[GunshipRescue piloting a helicopter]] [[BigDamnHeroes with Hendricks wielding]] [[GatlingGood the mounted minigun]], while [[BigEntrance loudspeakers mounted on the bottom of the chopper blast the song]] (again).
* In Creator/EricFlint's ''Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo'', "Ride of the Valkyries" is used to scare off an Imperial army.
* Later in the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' series, one of the Havenite captain/admirals fancies this before heading into battle. A battle in which over ''two million'' people died in a [[UpToEleven Massive]] [[SpaceBattle Exchange]] of [[MoreDakka firepower]] between fleets of hundreds of [[CoolStarship superdreadnoughts]]. Odin probably got enough heroes to feast in his hall that day, but he may not have had enough {{Valkyries}} to process them for a long time. Still the Battle of Manticore was a great battle to play that tune for.
* At the climax of ''Literature/TheFullerMemorandum'', [[ActionGirl Dominique "Mo" O'Brien]] plays ''die Walkurenritt'' on [[InstrumentOfMurder her violin]], from atop a truck full of SAS soldiers, [[spoiler:to clear a path through a localized zombie apocalypse.]] The violin is an ArtifactOfDoom, so it's no surprise that her interpretation of the piece involves magical resonances that human ears were emphatically ''not'' meant to hear and that serves as a very effectively deterrent [[spoiler:against the zombies in the cemetery.]]

When Wagner wrote it, he already intended it to evoke images of epic battles, but what really made that music the StandardSnippet for military {{badass}}ery in Western pop culture was the iconic helicopter raid in ''Film/ApocalypseNow'' ([[PopCulturalOsmosis even those who haven't seen the movie know that scene]], [[PopCulturalOsmosisFailure or at least used to]]). As a result, when the characters are charging on big machines, raining DeathFromAbove on their enemies or just riding a helicopter, either the soundtrack will play "Ride of the Valkyries", or a reference to it will be made.
