The fast mario music when you become invincible.

Not sure if this reaches the iconic level, but every time I hear I Am KROGAN! I want to go headbutt things and destory things with fire.

The game that really impressed me recently with great SFX was Mass Effect 3... The noise of the reapers really sticks in my mind. Awesome!

The "!" sound in MGS, Links grunt noises in pretty much every Zelda game, Whatever Mario says in that voice.

I got such warm fuzzy memories listening to that

Me too, there are many 8 bit computer sounds i can think of aswell but that sega chime always reminds me of a good time in my life.

The "!" in Metal Gear Solid

I'm surprised no one mentioned that. I heard a few people use it as a ringtone. :D But my choices go to that, Link opening a chest, and a bunch of Mario/Pac-man sounds.
