Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })A Stock Visual Metaphor: when something significant happens, expect to see birds flying off, especially white ones, especially pigeons (biologically the same thing as doves). These birds are likely to suffer from Perpetual Molt. This is Truth in Television as flocks of trained pigeons are sometimes incorporated into ceremonies such as weddings and flag retreats. And if the action involved movement, it might startle any nearby birds into flight.
Frequently subverted; not to be confused with the Bat Scare, in which flying creatures are symbolic of abandonment if anything.
Similar to That Poor Cat and its automotive equivalent, That Poor Car.

In Pokémon Black and White, stepping outside your house for the very first time will startle a flock of Pidove in your yard, and they'll fly off. If it's after sunset, you instead disturb a flock of Woobat.

On The Simpsons, Homer is frustrated that, despite numerous encounters and his having worked for the man for years, Mr. Burns still has no idea who he is. Marge advises him to send a gift. He sends a box of chocolates, and receives a thank-you note addressed to the other members of the Simpson family, but not to him. Enraged, he tells the kids to step out of the room, takes a deep breath, and shouts a Precision F-Strike, censored by a church organ. The church organ causes a flock of doves to fly away.

One of the campaign scenarios in Command & Conquer: Generals: Zero Hour begins with a large flock of ravens sitting in a tree that overlooks a cliff. A slight noise can be heard in the distance, the birds fly away, and a motorcycle drives over the cliff. Followed by another. Followed by dozens.

I Am Cuba: They're sent flying when the cops fire off a warning volley in an attempt to get the audience at Enrique's speech to disperse. A second volley actually shoots one of the doves out of the air, whereupon the film goes super-Anvilicious as Enrique leads a march away, holding the dead dove in front.

In Cowboy Bebop:
When Julia dies, the doves go flying. In slow motion, no less! For some reason, the doves stayed still through the running gunfight until Julia gets hit.

Parodied in the American Dad! episode "Roy Rogers McFreely." Roger takes over the homeowner's association and it eventually culminates into the equivalent of a mob war between him and Stan. Stan's group cut the breaks on a riding mower used by one of Roger's Mexican gardeners. Seeing he's headed for a small drop, he dramatically jumps off the mower into a bush, where doves fly off. The mower then comes to a stop.

A gameplay mechanic in Evolve. Flocks of birds spawn around the map, which a monster will startle into flight if it moves too close. This can be prevented by sneaking when moving near birds or using smell to detect them early and avoid them altogether.

In Shadow of the Colossus, doves gradually gather around Mono's altar; they will fly away if you get too close (or shoot arrows at them). Given that there are so few animals in the game, and that a new dove appears for each colossus killed, this is almost certainly symbolic, but exactly what they symbolize is anyone's guess.

Maison Ikkoku Episode 20: Kyoto denies feeling lonely while Godai is away at his hometown for New Years, and he keeps delaying his return. Then she meets Kozue (interesting how the two women in the Love Triangle get along so well) and they start talking about Godai, and how he hasn't come back yet. Kozue then says "I'm lonely". A moment to take in Kyoko's reaction- and the suddenly a bunch of pigeons take flight (and they watch them go, possibly combining this with the bird of lost love?) First time through it seems a little off, but looking back that was a very important moment when Kyoko realizes that she is lonely, and that Godai has become an important part of her life (even if it's not romantic).

In Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, when Shun Kurosaki draws his last card in his battle royale duel against Masumi, Hokuto, and Yaiba, the action generates a gust of wind that scares the birds away. The other three are suitably freaked out, and with good reason when Shun defeats them all at once.

In Arcana Heart, as a Shout-Out to John Woo movies, one of Petra's winning poses has her shoot one of her guns in the air, followed by a flock of doves flying past her.

Played for laughs in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney with Valant Gramarye. He's a magician, so his shock sprite involves not only disturbed doves but disturbed rabbits and disturbed bunches of flowers to boot.
A more subtle example in spin-off Dai Gyakuten Saiban: one of the animations for Justice Minister Hart Vortex features a group of birds in the background scenery flying off for effect. Somehow, this seems to happen only when he performs this pose, and happens every time.

In Shrek 2, birds are strategically released when Fiona and Shrek are announced to the kingdom. However, when everyone realizes that they're ogres, the birds are so distracted they crash into a wall.

This happened to Negi in Mahou Sensei Negima! after Albireo used his shapeshifter item to become Nagi for ten minutes, the titular character's Disappeared Dad. Nagi complained about Albireo's needless theatrics upon appearing.

Ouran High School Host Club in the beginning of the first episode. Haruhi walks down the school hallway and she passes a huge window while a flock of doves fly by. At the time she was thinking about her late mother. This is also her first day at Ouran and not long before she stumbles into the Host Club, an event that changes her life (and kicks off the rest of the series).

In horror film Eye of the Devil, a flock of doves flies away after Catherine drives into the courtyard of the spooky castle that is her husband's estate. Then some scary, dead-eyed locals shoot one of the doves out of the sky. It's a Town with a Dark Secret.

Team Fortress 2: A painting at the Valve offices featuring Medic posing with his Badass Longcoat blowing in the wind, holding a Medigun, and surrounded by Disturbed Doves was leaked online, foreshadowing the "Meet the Medic" video that would be shown soon after. It turns out that the Medic keeps doves as pets in the video, hence their disturbed flights.
You can also get a taunt which allows you to perform this at any time you want. The item's description is this;

At the climax of Blade Runner the decaying upper stories of the Bradbury Building are full of doves (and pigeon poop) as Deckard and Roy Batty play hide-and-seek, and Roy famously holds one in his hand as he delivers the magnificent Tannhäuser Gate monologue, releasing it as he murmurs, "Time to die..." This may honestly be one of the earliest appearances of the trope as a Significant Emotional Moment reaction, as opposed to a Loud Noise reaction.

You'll occasionally disturb flocks of pigeons in Deus Ex. They're rarely important, aside from alerting the odd guard. In a possible shout out to John Woo, it appears that roughly half of the world pigeon population resides in Hong Kong.

In the Assassin's Creed II trailer, birds fly off when Ezio uses his wrist gun. Justified, because the shot was fairly loud.
In the first game, flocks of doves mark points where it is safe to take a Leap of Faith, so you'll probably disturb them yourself as you jump.

Used once in the anime adaptation of Dragon Ball Z during the Cell Games arc. Perfect Cell decides to bring out Gohan's hidden power by provoking him to anger through the torture of his friends and the murder of his ally. He gets his wish and Gohan's breaking point is symbolized by a flight of doves behind his eyes.

Parodied in Drawn Together, in that almost every time something even slightly dramatic happens, Disturbed Doves will fly outward from the area randomly. In one scene, after the housemates look at a dramatic scene with Disturbed Doves in the background, said Disturbed Doves immediately attack the housemates.

Spoofed in the FLCL episode "Burabure" ("Brittle Bullet"). Naota and his grandfather are watching a pastiche of John Woo movies where a melodramatic death scene ("Brother! I'm a runaway bullet train after all!" "Brother! Don't you die on me now!") is interrupted when the non-dying character is overwhelmed by a flock of Disturbed Doves. (For those who didn't get the joke, the dub adds the line "What are all these pigeons doing in here?") The doves then fly out of the TV set after Kamon is sent crashing into the room and breaks the TV.

In the novels of Haruhi Suzumiya, during the making of the home movie, Haruhi decides that a flock of doves flying by Mikuru would make a perfect shot; unfortunately, all she can find are shrine pigeons. Of course, after the shoot, they end up turning pure white...
It happens in the anime episodes based on that storyline as well.
