* 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"?

* ''Film/{{Wanted}}'' as well as the director's previous films, ''Literature/NightWatch'' and ''DayWatch'', where things exist for no other reason than because they're cool. Example: Let's drive a car across a building. Why? Why not? You get the feeling that when they were thinking of the concept for this movie, someone said "What would happen if you took all the cool stunts from ''Film/TheMatrix'', and turned them UpToEleven?"

* ''Film/TheMatrix'': The premise involves robots imprisoning humans into a computer generated PlatonicCave. However, most of the series involves [[ThePhilosopher rebellious philosophers]] in {{Badass Longcoat}}s fighting [[TheMenInBlack artificially-intelligent Agent programs]] [[BadassInANiceSuit in corporate attire]], all through [[EverybodyWasKungFuFighting Martial Arts]]. ''[[BulletTime In Slow Motion]]''. It also helps that the Wachowski Brothers' inspiration for creating the trilogy was Japanese Anime.

* ''[[DinoRiders Dino-Riders]]'': {{time travel}}ing humans and alien monsters, some with [[ThreateningShark sharks]] for heads fighting each other while riding on dinosaurs outfitted with space age armour missile launchers and laser cannons. ''Dinosaurs equipped with [[{{BFG}} thumping great guns]] and laser cannons battling each other!'' How did that not catch on? These days, they're mostly remembered through pictures shared as "most-awesome-thing-ever" {{meme|ticMutation}}s. Thankfully it was continued by Imaginext Dinosaurs.
