** Never mind Disc F, which is apparently so potent that it takes ''two'' members of the Mic Force to play it (actually a song sung by [[Music/JAMProject Masaki Endoh and Hironobu Kageyama]]). Mic Sounders the 13th [[CrowningMomentOfAwesomeMechaAnime does it on his own]], by unleashing [[DualWielding two extra arms to hold two microphones]]. For an encore, he plays a suspension bridge like a giant harp.

* ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' is about powering your armor through singing and kicking alien ass with it. This gets even better as the casts becomes larger each season, as each and every Symphogear is a capable singer of their own right, on top of being [[NamesToKnowInAnime big names in the anime industry]].

* ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' is about powering your armor through singing and kicking alien ass with it.it, which means that virtually every fight scene is an example. This gets even better as the casts becomes larger each season, as each and every Symphogear is a capable singer of their own right, on top of being [[NamesToKnowInAnime big names in the anime industry]]. In a literal sense, the trope name especially applies to Chris and Kirika's {{Leitmotif}}s (Hard and Symphonic Rock, respectively).

* ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch'' combines this with MagicMusic. Later in the series, the ''villains'' fight back with their own songs, too.

* 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 ''Anime/{{Macross7}}'' is singing an actual source of superdimensional energy.

** 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.
*** The singer they got in for the English dub is said to have a similar effect on the audience.
** 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.
