* ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'': Special mention has to go to the Coma-Doof Warrior. An insane, blind guitarist, wearing his dead mother's face for a mask, rocking out in front of a massive wall of speakers, careening through the desert at high speeds, with a team of drummers bringing up the rear, and the guitar shoots fire.

Not only is it awesome, it's also practical; Immortan Joe uses the music for morale and to relay commands to the rest his convoy, like a next-level drummer boy.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'': There is a in-universe reason for all the strange awesomess but why would you care with so hammy hot blood and HumongousMecha?

** Kamina, resident BadAss draws his [[KatanasAreJustBetter trusty Katana]], and it keeps coming out of the sheath for ten feet, for no reason other than it looks cool while battling someone wielding a meat cleaver. The length of Kamina's sword seems directly proportional to the length of the speech he is making while drawing it.

** Enzo's birthday party. During the festivities, [[EvilOverlord Megabyte]] crashes the party, and brings out... a guitar? With a [[ThisIsSpinalTap dial turned to 11?]] Megabyte begins jamming. Then Bob steps up to face him, seemingly angry at him for crashing the party. Then he commands his [[SwissArmyWeapon keytool]] to turn into a guitar and thus begins a rocking '''guitar duel''', between [[GoKartingWithBowser the Hero and the Big Bad!]] The whole thing ends with Megabyte giving Enzo his guitar, "I've always wanted to do that" and then leaving. Sure, it could've been a trap, or just about anything, but those thoughts never crossed ANYONE'S mind because it was just that freaking AWESOME.

* The F-117 is painted black, supposedly for stealth. Some designers on the project have acknowledged that dark grey would be a better color, but the decision was essentially handed down because black would look cooler.

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'':
** Following the events of ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', Coulson has taken steps to avert S.H.I.E.L.D.'s SigilSpam, removing the emblem from the cars and many other obvious places. He couldn't bring himself to remove the giant symbol on the top of the plane, though, because it's just too cool.
** Coulson has Fitz make him a device that projects an energy shield for the sole reason that they both agreed it would be cool for the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. to have a shield. For bonus points, it's in the shape of Captain America's shield, though with the S.H.I.E.L.D. symbol rather than his star.

* ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' is based on one very simple concept: medieval knights riding dinosaurs into battle. How do you tame a dinosaur? ''Can'' you tame a dinosaur? If you tamed it, could you ride it? Would it even want to charge into battle? It does not matter - what matters are ''medieval knights riding dinosaurs into battle''.

* ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'':
** The jungle swordfight between Mutt and the bad girl. Realistic? Not in the least. Supremely friggin' awesome? Hell yes.
** The fridgenuking! What if that was the writers saying "Dr. Jones is badass enough that you can't kill him with nukes, or whatever is immediately surrounding him"?
