* The LEGOAdaptationGame series ''loves'' this trope. It knows exactly what it is and isn't afraid to be as outlandish and silly as humanly possible. It even makes a level out of the [[{{Series/Batman}} 60's Batman]] in LEGO Batman 3 and [[UpToEleven takes it up to eleven.]]

* ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' and its parent series ''Franchise/SuperSentai''. It went for a DarkerAndEdgier setup for some of it's later seasons, though. After PowerRangersRPM, {{Saban}} bought the rights back from {{Creator/Disney}} and the show went back to its campy roots with PowerRangersSamurai.

** [[http://www.venetianmacao.com/en/ Macau's own Fake Venice]] which is not only three times the size of it's Vegas counterpart, [[UpToEleven but even campier]]. Picture sitting in a Japanese restaurant, overlooking a fake indoor replica of the Grand Canal, with the gondolier rowing past and singing a (very good) rendition of Sarah Brightman's part in "Time To Say Goodbye". Oh, and the Brazillian steakhouse on the fake St Mark's Square, with street entertainers suddenly bursting out of doors to do rousing renditions of "Feniculi Fenicula". Oh yeah, it's more camp than Rufus Wainright.

* Really, any city known as a gambling/casino mecca will have at least a few of these:

** [[UsefulNotes/NewJersey Atlantic City]], the Eastern Vegas. Its most famous pieces of ludicrous camp are probably its [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trump_Taj_Mahal Fake India]] (though that looks like it'll be shut down), [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caesars_Atlantic_City Fake Rome]], and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tropicana_Casino_and_Resort_Atlantic_City Fake Old Havana]], but really, all the casinos either specialize in or at least include some kind of faux something (for instance, Bally's has the Wild Wild West section--even though the Golden Nugget also has a Wild West theme. In ''Atlantic'' City. Literally a few yards from the Atlantic Ocean in the case of Bally's. Yes.) Even when it's not aping something it's often ludicrously garish. That the rest of Atlantic City--heck, Atlantic County--has been kind of a mismanaged shithole for decades only accentuates the camp.

* ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'' (aka ''Glitter Force'' in America) is full of this. It's a Sailor Moon-like series complete with candy-colored superheroes, literal fairy tale villains, cheesy dialog, and they beat the baddies with ThePowerOfFriendship and [[ThePowerOfLove Love]].

** [[http://www.venetian.com The Venetian]] is the clearest case of Camp on the Strip. Most of the resorts do indeed have an exaggerated and theatrical presentation. However, not all of the resorts have the required [[ClicheStorm derivative substance]] or [[SoBadItsGood hilarious badness]] or monumental tackiness. For instance, [[http://www.bellagiolasvegas.com/ the Bellagio]] is certainly exaggerated in its theatricality, and presented very well. However, the resort takes itself very seriously and the vast majority of visitors to it consider it SoCoolItsAwesome rather than SoBadItsGood.

* The video for Sweden's 2007 Series/{{Eurovision|SongContest}} entry, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urCLhm_VBsk "The Worrying Kind"]] by The Ark, is three minutes of pure, distilled camp. And who could forget 2006 winners Music/{{Lordi}} - a Finnish heavy metal group, adorned in full-body monster costumes, which sings about the "Day of Rockening"? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-Uc8F8_c1M&feature=related Combine for maximum powah!]]

* Where the hell do we even begin with ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''? Some even view it as the Sonic equivalent of Creator/AdamWest's Batman (of course considering that of all the DIC shows it was the closest to the source material Sonic was never intended to be as serious as Batman). For starters we have Sonic (who is voiced by [[Series/FamilyMatters Jaleel White]]) shouting out over-the-top {{Catch Phrase}}s such as "I'M WAAAAAITING," and "WAY PAST COOL," [[HarmlessVillain Scratch and Grounder]] who are too [[TooDumbToLive INSANELY stupid]] to do almost anything right, yet alone catch Sonic, and ([[WatchItForTheMeme of course]]), [[LargeHam Dr. Ivo Robotnik]] who should probably [[MemeticMutation give himself a promotion]] for displaying such [[{{Pun}} camPINGAS]] usual we see.

* ''WesternAnimation/MuchaLucha is very much this. Everyone in their world is a wacky, over-the-top MaskedLuchador with the strange ability to morph their bodies into whatever shapes that are based on their special move's names. They go on crazy adventures that lead them to battle evil toilets, ancient Mexican mummies, an entire classroom that teaches some of the other luchadors how to be evil, and many other bizarre things.
