* Many of the questions in {{XKCD}}'s What If section (e.g. Using eagles to deliver pizza to plane passengers in flight.) are this. In fact the conclusion reached at the end of each answer is often either this, the world being annihilated, or some combination of the two.

* The martians of ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' destroyed their own civilization and worked themselves to extinction to turn Mars into a workable space-craft (except, of course, that upon completion there was no-one left to drive it). Why? ''Because it was cool.''

Differs from SoBadItsGood and SoCoolItsAwesome by being the localized case; those apply to the whole show. See also AchievementsInIgnorance, a SisterTrope: when the "impossible" is achieved due to not knowing it's impossible; frequently, cases of CoolButStupid are acknowledged as being stupid, but carry on regardless "just to see what will happen". Compare AwesomeButImpractical.

* In Creator/TeamFourStar's [[WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged abridgment]] of the [[Anime/DragonBallZBrolyTheLegendarySuperSaiyan Broly movie]], Vegeta has a mental crisis over how someone as cool as Broly can be [[DisappointedByTheMotive so goddamn dumb.]] Incidentally, this seems to be the general fan consensus on the character, as well.
