* Episodes of SaladFingers use the odd little tune "Beware the Friendly Stranger" by Music/BoardsOfCanada at least once per episode. In one episode, it is played backwards, [[MindScrew for no other reason besides the fact that they could]].
* ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'':
** Background music that plays while the focus is on Blake tends to be played with piano.
** Roman Torchwick has a sinister violin and piano piece that plays when he appears.
** "I Burn" is this for Yang, basically being a long BadassBoast in song form. So far, it's been remixed three times in Volume 3: a smooth jazz version when she took out Team FNKI, a badass techno version in her fight against Mercury, and [[spoiler:a sad piano version as she was being arrested on television for [[DeliberateInjuryGambit "breaking" Mercury's leg]].]]
* In ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', "Awake" from ''Anime/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' plays whenever the Fabulous Custodians are on screen. The Ultramarines also have their music, heavy with chanting and classical tones.
* Whenever things get deep around Dictator Pickles in WebAnimation/AlfredsPlayhouse, II. Allegretto by Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra can be heard growing in the background. Labby also has a dark organ tune follow him in TheMovie.
