** One of the Space Vampires rocks out so hard [[EarthShatteringKaboom it blows up a planet]].
*** In the original ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', Minmei's song revealed the concept of "culture" to the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy war-waging Zentraedi]], which caused them either to defect to protect [[NeglectfulPrecursors their creators' legacy]], or shocked them with abject terror.

*** In ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', it's not so much the song as the passionate feelings behind it which affect the empathic Vajra, who communicate through song ([[spoiler:and across the galaxy, if the singer has the ability]]) themselves.
*** ''Anime/MacrossPlus'' sees a rare use of ThePowerOfRock for evil. Sharon Apple, a [[AiIsACrapshoot rogue AI]], uses it to mind control an entire ''city'' in the OVA and '''[[UpToEleven the entire planet Earth]]''' in TheMovie. [[spoiler:She is finally stopped when Myung [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming hits Isamu with her own special song that she hadn't sung in seven years]], breaking him out of Sharon's spell so he can destroy Sharon's central computer core.]]

Added DiffLines:

** By the time of ''Anime/MacrossDelta'', they've explained everything in previous works as due to [[BackgroundMagicField Fold Waves]], and that the singers who are able to harness the Power of Rock in previous series as due to them having high Fold Receptor Factor allowing them to generate these while singing. The IdolSinger [[GirlGroup group]] Walkure from this series is specifically composed of girls who have this.

* The final battle in ''Shin KoihimeMusou'' is a war between {{Idol Singer}}s. The Chou Sisters versus an impromptu group formed from Enjutsu, Choukun and Kakuka. The war is not so much about the singers as it is [[CharmPerson controlling their fanboys]] to either take revenge or calm down. The final blow is dealt by Ryuubi and company singing an a capella version of "Ima wo Shinjite" that wins by ThePowerOfFriendship alone.

* How monster users in ''BusterKeel'' power up their monsters using guitars. Usually depends on what pick is used and what music is played.

* This plays a massive part in TwentiethCenturyBoys, so much so that one of the major plot points of the final arc is that of [[spoiler:Kenji uniting the rundown populace of the now CrapsackWorld and giving them courage through his protest song that is being broadcasted via pirate radio. It also serves as a way to let his friends know he is still alive, due to modified lyrics in the song]]. In the end, [[spoiler:Kenji and his song are one of the main reasons that [[BigBad Friend]] is eventually defeated]].

* The ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'' series is about The Power Of IdolSinger Music (and of [[NuclearWeaponsTaboo reaction warheads]]). It should be noted, it usually has a different justification every time; only in ''{{Macross7}}'' is singing an actual source of superdimensional energy.
** ''{{Macross 7}}'' is all about a spacefaring J-Rock band that fights giant space vampires by rocking them so hard they have orgasms (at least, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uCciEhtzGU Sivil does]]). In [[HumongousMecha transforming fighter planes]] controlled by guitars. It works.

* The WaveMotionGun in ''BlackHeaven'' is powered by a heavy metal guitarist's "groove". However, it's also [[spoiler:partial to ''evil techno'']].
** It's worth noting that the original title is ''Kachou Oh-Ji'' ("Office Boss Ohji", referring to the main character). The subtitle? ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Hard Rock Save The Space]]''.
** BlackHeaven, or "The Legend of Black Heaven" is all about this. An aged, retired rocker (and later the rest of his old heavy metal band) is called back into action by a group of aliens to fight off an evil alien space empire with, you guessed it, the power of rock.

* In {{Grenadier}}, one of the Jutensen uses a miniaturized [[OminousPipeOrgan organ]] as a weapon that can project an impenetrable shield of sound, and can probably melt your insides with a riff.
