* Take the silly over-the-top grimdark setting of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. Add in the cast of ''Sonic the Hedgehog'', Richard Dawkin's ''The God Delusion'', HP Lovecraft, and the RuleOfCool. Combine them all and you get ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos''. If it wasn't for the balls-to-the-wall action sequences, [[RefugeInAudacity sheer grim darkness]], and (mostly) competent writing, it would probably qualify as SoBadItsGood.

* ProfessionalWrestling ''itself'' is this. You know, somewhere in the back of your mind, [[{{Kayfabe}} it's a show, that the matches are predetermined]]. And while it has to be a WorldOfBadass just for those men and women to survive the moves and often to come back from the numerous injuries they receive (and it should be remembered that every so often, [[CareerEndingInjury a wrestler]] [[KilledOffForReal doesn't come back]], [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle so please]], DontTryThisAtHome), it's also a WorldOfHam, because for almost anyone to get over they need to be ChewingTheScenery. But if two great performers are in the ring, [[SpotMonkey jumping off to attack each other from impossibly high places]] and [[GarbageWrestler smashing each other with every single]] "[[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad inter]][[Wrestling/WCW national]]" [[GarbageWrestler object they can find]] [[WrestlingPsychology while still telling a great story through the match]], and if [[ExecutiveMeddling some idiot]] [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon named]] [[Wrestling/VinceRusso Vince]] doesn't write something DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible, the voice reminding you that [[HamAndCheese the overacting is just covering for bad writing]] is going to be absolutely ''silent'' until that final bell rings, because you'll not only [[Film/SupermanTheMovie believe a man can fly]], you'll also believe he'd use that power to defeat a [[TheGiant humongous]] [[WrestlingMonster monster]] by flipping through the air and crashing through a table with the monster on it.

* ''TabletopGame/PrincessTheHopeful'' is a fan-made supplement for the ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'', whose entire premise is to throw cute, heroic {{Magical Girl}}s in a CrapsackWorld based on GothicHorror. The idea sounds absolutely ridiculous on paper, but thanks to good writing, interesting lore and a fitting theme, the game actually makes it ''work''.

* A wrestler embracing her inner {{Fangirl}} who likes to give everyone she knows a [[TheGlomp glomp]] which she also uses as her FinishingMove, and comes out to an entrance that has wacky inflatable tube-arm men? Sounds absolutely ludicrous on paper, but through a combination of sheer likability and charisma Wrestling/{{Bayley}} somehow makes it work to become one of the most popular wrestlers in NXT.

* School plays- particularly Nativity plays- are full of this. Small children in badly made costumes, and making it obvious from the way that they recite their lines that they have ''no idea what they're saying''. Aww.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'':
** The JNPR dance is the corniest, cheesiest thing imaginable, but there couldn't be a more awesome or satisfying conclusion to that subplot.
** Ozpin doing voices for the Maidens in the World of Remnant episode "The Four Maidens" is goofy, but it adds to the feeling that it's something out of a storybook, and works really well.
** Adam's line [[spoiler: when he's about to try and murder Blake is delivered with almost no emotion to the point where it doesn't even seem to be a question, but it just shows how far he's fallen and how he can't be reasoned with anymore.]]

* The meme [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/israel-loves-iran-iran-loves-israel Israel loves Iran, Iran loves Israel,]] because this campaign was practically asking for sarcastic and cynic replies, but then Israeli and Iranian citizens decide to it really serious and call for peace between the two countries.
