The other example is Simchas Beis haSho'eivah.

Notice that one is extreme joy, and the other extreme sadness. Neither
was tefillah betzibbur. Should the fact that chazal thought it was
natural to apply these precedents to tefillah be taken to mean that --
"thanks to my knees for bowing at modim" aside -- Chazal found such
extremes of emotion common during davening?
