* One of the custom weapons in ''GarrysMod'' is a radio. Which plays a song of your choice (Comes with [[RickRoll Never Gonna Give You Up]]), which will cause enemies to spontaneously combust.

* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'' gives us the dubstep gun. When fired, the targets stop anything they're doing, start dancing and soon, explode. This can happen with enemy mooks, pedestrians, cars, street lamps... Like the [[ThePiedPiperOfHamelin Pied Piper]] meets ''Film/MarsAttacks'', but with wubs. [[EverythingIsBetterWithExplosions Explosive]] wubs.

Unlike most of the weapons in the game, the alternate skins on the weapon are actually functional, as they change the music of the wubs, and thus the frequency and firing rate of the gun.

* The entire [[https://youtu.be/8-l_kbZbXRQ?list=PLjACqN5i5sDUo3MfGtqogz7P3u5JUm3c- song catalog]] of ''Videogame/AlanWake'''s HeavyMithril FakeBand [[Music/PoetsOfTheFall Old Gods of Asgard]] {{Invoke|d}}s and {{Exploit|ed}}s this in-universe, as each song they release contains helpful hints on how to defeat the EldritchAbomination plaguing the hero, partly because it was written near a magical lake that grants ''any'' artist in its vicinity MagicWriting powers.

* ''OsuTatakaeOuendan!'', or its American counterpart, ''EliteBeatAgents''. EliteBeatAgents ends with the Agents blowing up the aliens by having everyone on Earth dance to Music/TheRollingStones' ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-rnmzLNAr4 Jumpin' Jack Flash]]''. [[SugarWiki/BetterThanItSounds Definitely more awesome than you might think it is]].

* ''VideoGame/AzureStrikerGunvolt 2'' uses this in tandem with a literal ThemeMusicPowerUp. [[spoiler:To disable the FinalBoss's LimitBreak, the titular Gunvolt invokes the Muse's Anthem, "Reincarnation". [[UnexpectedGameplayChange You get to sing it]], and upon doing so, "Reincarnation" kicks in while the attack ends, allowing Gunvolt to finish off the boss.]]

* In VideoGame/{{Piratez}}, a high-level equivalent of the Battle Flag is a badass guitar. Its main function is to boost Time Units of nearby characters.

* Before Inis made ''Ouendan'', they made ''VideoGame/GitarooMan'' for the PS2, a [[WidgetSeries technicolour daydream]] about a superhero fighting aliens with his lightning-shooting guitar-weapon-thing. It was awesome.
