Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/GunslingerGirl''. One of the missions takes place during a showing of Tosca, and we see just about every important scene at least in part. Claes has apparently memorized Tosca's whole cry to God speech/aria, which seems somehow appropriate.

* In the mission "Curtains down" from ''VideoGame/HitmanBloodMoney'', 47 is sent to kill a great opera singer and child rapist, Alvaro D'Alvade, and his protector Richard Delahunt at the Paris Opera House, while D'Alvade is rehearsing the execution scene from ''Tosca''. You can get the actor killed by switching the prop gun used for the scene with a real one, or mask your own shot by firing at the same time as the executioner.

* TheGhost: Angelotti's sister, who helps him evade the authorities and is subsequently suspected by Tosca of being Cavaradossi's other woman, is mentioned a lot in the first act but never actually appears.

* LyricalDissonance: Scarpia has all these gorgeously melodic tunes. He's singing about his plots to rape Tosca, kill Cavaradossi, and generally be as nasty as possible. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3McP88FGHo This all happens while he's *in a church*, with the congregation singing the "Te Deum"]] right behind him.

* MoralMyopia: Talking loudly in church? Scandalous! Planning murder and rape ''while still in church''? Perfectly all right.

On the eve of [[UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte Napoleon]]'s occupation of Rome, the painter Mario Cavaradossi hides his friend, escaped political prisoner Cesare Angelotti, from the police. Unfortunately this brings both him and his sweetheart, the singer Floria Tosca, to the attention of the villainous chief of police Scarpia. Scarpia arrests Cavaradossi and demands that [[ScarpiaUltimatum Tosca spend the night with him]], then the painter's execution will be fake, and the lovers will be able to leave Rome. Tosca agrees, but when Scarpia comes to embrace her, she stabs him in the heart with a knife. Unfortunately, Scarpia did not intend to release Cavaradossi at all, and the execution turns out to be real. Seeing her lover dead and Scarpia's henchmen running to get her, Tosca [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled leaps off the parapet]] of the Castel Sant'Angelo, crying that she will meet Scarpia before God.
