* 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 that Abomination's own RealityWarper powerset incidentally grants ''any'' artist in its vicinity MagicWriting powers.

* 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.

* ''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 MarsAttacks, but with wubs. [[EverythingIsBetterWithExplosions Explosive]] wubs.

* 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]].

** 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.

** ''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.
