''Santa With Muscles'' is a 1996 comedy about a wealthy, greedy health food guru named Blake (played by Wrestling/HulkHogan) who winds up on the run from the cops when a paintball session goes wildly awry. Disguising himself as a MallSanta, a blow to the head leaves him with amnesia -- and thanks to an "elf" who can use some, and perhaps ''his'', money, he is subsequently convinced that he's the ''real'' Santa. From there, Blake decides to [[SavingTheOrphanage save an orphanage]] from supervillain Ebner Frost and his strange henchmen, who want the land the building is on for an unusual reason...

* PoliceAreUselsss: Boy howdy. They exist ONLY to harass Blake after his incidents with them. They mysteriously disappear when others commit crimes, like the mall robbery and all of Frost's machinations.

* DieHardOnAnX: The last half hour is effectively ''Film/DieHard'' in an orphanage. Not to mention that it involves breaking into a vault (which housed the piezoelectric crystals) near Christmas.



* ImprobableWeaponUser: Some of Frost's mooks wield T-squares.



* RuleOfCool: The only reason why a local policeman would have and use a rocket launcher in the middle of a car chase.

to:

* PsychoElectro: The female villain has electric gauntlets.
* RuleOfCool: The only reason why a local policeman would have and use a rocket launcher in the middle of a car chase. Though it can be justified as Blake and his servants were viewed as ''terrorists'' early in the film from their mock attacks on the police.
