** In another, a character punches another guy so hard a roughly half-meter diameter perfectly round cylinder of flesh is straight up punched out of his torso, leaving him with a perfectly round hole other people can see through. In the post-credits scene, that mook is seen using his own cylinder of flesh as the weight of a meteor hammer.

[[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Even the narrator goes on a mild rant about how unlikely this is.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/ThreeNinjas'' and its sequels: Rocky, Colt and Tum Tum are able to beat up several bigger & stronger adult opponents in rapid succession. Even a well trained real-life kid ninja would have trouble with attackers more numerous than them, let alone a single bigger & stronger foe. Aristic license though is taken for both RuleOfCool and RuleOfFunny.

** Take a look at when Mulan kicks Shang. She pivots on her ''toe''- in martial arts, you typically pivot on the ball of your foot.

** Take a look at when Mulan kicks Shang. She pivots on her ''toe''- in martial arts, you typically pivot on the ball of your foot. On top of that, the only kicks that benefit from raising your back foot's heel are sweeps; even if you pivot on the ball, you lose power if you're not planted otherwise.

* In real judo, a "throw" is any maneuver that knocks an opponent off his feet. In an episode of ''TheFlintstones'', however, Wilma used judo to throw an intruder all the way into the next room and out the door.

* In the Spanish adventure series ''AguilaRoja'', Gonzalo, the main character dresses and moves like a ninja, but his fighting style is somewhat indetermined, and doesn't resemble Ninjutsu at all.

Added DiffLines:

** At one point, a character fights a baby - and the baby does a BladeRun then kicks the guy's ass.
** At another, a character shreds a another guy's clothes into a humiliating frilly bikini, causing DefeatByModesty.
** In another, a character punches another guy so hard a roughly half-meter diameter perfectly round cylinder of flesh is straight up punched out of his torso, leaving him with a perfectly round hole other people can see through. In the post-credits scene, that mook is seen using his own cylinder of flesh as the weight of a meteor hammer.
** A character makes nunchucks out of gophers, and he defeats a horde of mooks by making flailing motions with his hands before emerging with all of their eyeballs impaled on his fingertips. He then imitates Bruce Lee's infamous sounds so loudly he bursts an artery.
** All of the above happen before the halfway point of the film. By the midpoint, the silliness has risen to the level of defeating a kung-fu cow by milking it into submission.

* Although ''Series/Daredevil2015'' is usually pretty good with its fight choreography, some of the fights in the first season had the titular character doing flips in the middle of a fight, seemingly just for RuleOfCool.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'' the Third Doctor's Venusian Aikido pretty much counts as this; it seems to have mostly been designed to make Jon Pertwee look good in a cloak. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

** Kirk used a horizontal jump kick so often that when Creator/WilliamShatner nearly got into a RealLife fight, he realized that he was instinctively planning on using it. After a moment of consideration, he realized that flopping onto the floor at the beginning of a real fight would go very badly for him, so he walked away.
