* The Bard, in ''TheBardsTale'' (2004), is able to summon creatures with his music, which can be played by everything from a lute to a singing sword, to an ''electric guitar axe.'' * The obscure PlayStation title ''Mad Maestro!'' did a fair job of invoking this with ''classical music''.

* ''LeagueOfLegends'' champion Mordekaiser likes his weapons how he likes his music (Heavy and '''METAL'''). All of his abilities are a ShoutOut to various heavy metal songs. If that's not enough, he's ''in a band'' with four other champions. He plays the [[JustForPun Ax]][[AnAxeToGrind e]].

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

** On that subject, in ''{{Gungrave}}: Overdose'', you could play as Rocketbilly Redcadillac (no really, that's his name), a rockabilly ghost haunting an electricity-shooting guitar, who could fry enemies by playing it, even morphing it into an [[Manga/{{Trigun}} angel arm]]-esque beam cannon during one of his special attacks. Yeah, it's ''[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot that]]'' kind of game.

* Naturally, ''RockBand'' and ''GuitarHero'' are all over this trope like jam on toast:

** ''GuitarHero II'' had an animated TV commercial in which a band plays "Woman" by Wolfmother. A giant asteroid headed straight for them is withered away to a pebble by the sheer power of their rock, capped with a CrowningMomentOfAwesome when the guitarist catches it before slamming into the next phrase. The message appears to be that even an actual rock is no match for this trope. ** ''GuitarHero III'' has you battle the devil with, of course, "The Devil Went Down to Georgia". The intro has a guitarist literally climbing Mt. Olympus and defeating the gods of rock.

* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' has ETC (Elite Tauren Chieftan) as a playable hero. Naturally, he wields a literal axe (a guitar with an axe blade on it) and has rock/metal themed abilities, including [[InvoluntaryDance Mosh Pit]] and [[DynamicEntry Stage Dive]].

** His other solo powers include: *** Summoning armies to his side *** Constructing buildings instantly *** Summoning his personal mount, a custom built hot rod outfitted with weapons made by ''the literal god of rock'' (voiced and performed by Ozzy Ozzbourne) *** Bind literal gods to the earth and prevent them from flying *** Summon wild animals all infused with the power of rock to fight by his side *** Prevent anyone else from using ThePowerofRock against him and remove their ability to play at all *** Empower his allies to fight harder and stronger (turns out Eddie's an Epic Bard!) *** Drop a Lead Zeppelin on his enemies. That also explodes

*** The Japan-only prequel ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER}}'' (AKA Earthbound Zero) takes this a step further. You actually have to use the ''sing'' command to defeat the BigBad.

** In ''Alpha 3'', you get to face [[MacrossPlus Sharon Apple]] where [[spoiler:her big song, ''Information High'' actually works against you in that you will be reduced to 50 morale (the lowest possible you can get) when you deploy AND have to slowly build up morale. Against [[GoddamnedBats multiple Ghost X-9]]'s.]] Then, when it seems all hope is lost, [[spoiler:out comes [[{{Macross7}} Basara Nekki]] and delivers his CatchPhrase: [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome "Sharon Apple, LISTEN TO MY SONG!"]]. All units jump up to maximum morale and proceed to rip apart the Ghost X-9's like no tomorrow.]]

* ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'' has this trope at its core. Starring the aforementioned Jack Black as Eddie Riggs, a roadie for a pretentious nu-metal band who wishes he lived in a time where the music was actual heavy metal ("like, the ''early'' seventies"). He soon finds himself TrappedInAnotherWorld, which is practically based around this trope. As far as Eddie's concerned, he's in AscendedFanboy ''heaven,'' [[Spoiler:at least until it gets worse]]. Examples:
