I think this should be a Trivia Trope.

There's a sound effect used for the "hacker" device in the Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies map "Moon" that I've heard in numerous TV shows. Mostly in cartoons, I believe. The sound can be heard here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQczEdANMjA

I think the last thing I heard it in was the cartoon "Johnny Test".

Here, at 3:17 and here at 2:38. Sounds somewhat similar. Is it used anywhere else?

Well it's been remarked upon a few times, but this page needs a LOT of reform and organizing. Most of the descriptions here are without examples, and are very vague anyway - I thought it'd be about specific sounds that you hear commonly in many places.

Can "splash" count? I'm not sure.

I've found the origin for Aliens and monsters/Film/"Another stock roar", it's Sound Ideas The General Series 6000, 6039 track 41-3 "Animal, Creature Large Animal Roar".

It also can be heard in video games: Heretic Sabreclaw Action sound "CLKACT", Warcraft II Dragon Screech (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wkc4uCaLpw#t=226s)

Also a clearer example of the sound than one given in the article: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAULIFqlEY0#t=7s

Someone, add this information, I can't due to strange technical issues.

Anybody know anything about the "energy beam groan"? Basically, if you have a discharge of energy (or other things...) that doesn't go pew-pew or sound like an explosion, there's this sound that I've heard a lot that sounds kind of like groaning metal. It's always the exact same sound.

I want to say I heard it in Megamind, but I'm not sure about that. I first heard it in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command as the sound of Zerg's Unimind ray.

Nope, the Unimind ray was not the sound I was thinking of.

Oh, I know an example. 6:35

Holy Jesus, this page needs organization! Maybe it's just me, but I think it's...pretty hard to read.

OK, does anyone know where to find the generic three-note "dramatic sting"? You know the one.

DUN Dun DAAAH!

It's very similar to the one in the "Dramatic Chipmunk" clip, but more like A#, A, C & C# (says the musical illiterate after five minutes fiddling around with a keyboard)

metal door i've heard it a million times! never thought i'd find it here. it was in Walking Dead, for the door to the roof of the building. do the sound people use it as a sort of inside joke like wilhelm scream, or are they just too lazy to use another, or what?

Does any one know the stock sound in the background for the regular digivolution sequence in Digimon Adventures. I don't know about the original dub but the music in the localized version has this sound effect in the music that's a series of whistles that rises in pitch and volume.

It was also used in the Buffy episode, "Teacher's Pet". It was the so called "bat sonar". I'm not sure whether that's what it's actually called.

It's generic police chatter. I'm sure if you actually did make out what they're saying it wouldn't be very interesting on its own, but yes, it's a stock sound and it is listed here.
