* ''MarchenAwakensRomance'' uses this trope a lot. Especially when it comes to weapons.

Added DiffLines:

** While the overall tone of the show is fairly subdued (occasional [[MundaneMadeAwesome overdramatic moments]] notwithstanding), the anime's second opening sequence is probably the most high-octane, insane, straight-up metal thing to ever come out of Japan in the past century.

** Bills, used King Vegeta's head as a footstool in front of his own son Prince Vegeta while making him treat him to an Eight-Course Banquet, curbstomped Super Saiyan 3 Goku with a single chop on the back of the knock, used chopsticks to defeat Tien and knock Piccolo out with pressure point attacks, defeats Super Gotenks by spanking him, effortlessly defeats Vegeta with a single pressure point attack to the forehead and one shot all the other Z-Fighters including Android 18, Ultimate Gohan and Majin Buu. Oh, and he also needs the sounds of ''multiple bombs exploding continuously and simultaneously'' just to wake up.

* [[BoisterousBruiser Jack Rakan]] from ''MahouSenseiNegima''. His entire fighting style seems to be based on RuleOfCool. Feats include summoning a [[{{BFS}} building sized sword]], ''accidentally'' blowing up a mountain, and defeating his opponents by [[PantyThief stealing their panties.]] Then there's the supersonic sword-surfing, and his method of escaping a barrier dimension...

* ''Franchise/DragonBall'':
** Before CerebusSyndrome strolled into town, Goku had this as his super power, turning Rock Paper Scissors into an attack, acting like a monkey in the middle of battle, and defeating Monster Carrot by putting him on the moon.
** Vegito, the [[FusionDance fusion]] of [[TheHero Goku]] and [[TheRival Vegeta]]. At one point during his battle with [[EldritchAbomination Buu]], Vegito is [[BalefulPolymorph turned into a piece of candy]]. That can still move, and talk, and ''kick Buu's ass.''



* DragonBall essentially ''runs'' on {{Crazy Awesome}} but a few examples stand out in absolute ridiculousness:

* Every aspect of ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', which has some of the greatest moments of crazy-awesome that have ever been imagined. Kamina invokes this intentionally.

** When faced with a mosquito-based youma and an army of mosquitoes, Minako annihilated them all in ''one attack'' with weaponized ''mosquito-repelling incense''. For added awesomeness, she predated [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Spiral Energy]] with the spiral-looking beam she fired from the incense burner;

*** [[spoiler: Before finding out the guy shared a backstory and friendship with Igneel, he intended to '''EAT''' Atlas Flame, a humongous fire dragon, and use that power up to kick Future!Rogue's ass. From what it looked like, one could believe his plan would have ''worked'']].

* ''Manga/SuperGals'' has Tatsuki Kuroi, who makes a habit of doing rather stupid things in an awesome way (and them to work out in the end). The best example is that time the train from Machida (where he lives) to Shibuya (where his girlfriend and protagonist Ran lives) was down and he needed to go to her: instead of waiting for the train to come back on line he borrowed a bike, pedaled for over a hour, and just as Ran said out loud that Tatsuki had once promised he'd fly to her if she ever needed he ''took off, flew and landed before her'', all in more time that it would have taken by waiting for the train and taking that.

* Pretty much everyone in TheLegendOfKoizumi; its basically a CrazyAwesome ''world''. This begins to set in with chapter one, but is firmly established by the point where Junichiro Koizumi sets himself on fire scraping a mahjong tile made of depleted uranium with his fingernail hard enough to scratch the top half millimeter off in a room with too much oxygen.

* Director Yasuhiro Imagawa seems to love this. His works, ''GiantRobo'', ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'' and ''Anime/ShinMazinger'', are some of the most over-the-top shows in anime history that seem to run off of pure distilled RefugeInAudacity (and that's not even getting into the shows themselves). And, quite frankly, the shows themselves wouldn't be half as awesome if they weren't so batshit.

* [[BattleAngelAlita Desty Nova]] is the kind of guy who saws the top of his head off to prove a point, gives random people bodies that account for weapons of mass destruction, makes a backup of his brain (and head) on his belly, or becomes inmortal in a way that turns him into a literal plague, and with at least 3 of himself with separate agendas and working against each other; all for [[strike:the lulz]] [[ForScience KARMATRON DYNAMICS]], and meanwhile he eats flan, laughs madly, and wears spectacles that makes him look like a maniac. We also have Zekka, who does miracles by hitting things really hard. No seriously.
