Certain frequency + certain object = Stuff Blowing Up
You'd think we'd have this one, at least the ones involving tuning forks. Do we?
A surefire way to destroy something in fiction is to hit it with a wave of energy (often a blast of sound) that has just the right frequency pattern to match the object's natural resonance; instead of simply absorbing or reflecting the energy, the object vibrates right along with it, and literally shakes itself apart. In cartoons, the implement is often a tuning fork. Glass-Shattering Sound is a Sub-Trope. Not related to Bad Vibrations.
