%%* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''

to:

%%* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' has this as a guiding principle when writing the setting. It was all but outright stated in a featurette that Rule of Cool dictated the writing sessions for Tartakovsky and his creative team. They would sit down and ask: What cool thing can we invoke this episode that we saw on TV when we were kids? Why are there robotic Celtic demons, cowboys riding jet-powered horsebots, robotic Viking warriors, boisterous Highlanders with machine-guns for legs, Spartan warriors with rocket spears, immortal monks and magical portals? Because ''awesome''.

* ''Franchise/{{Transformers|FilmSeries}}'': There is no other reason for these films to exist or for anyone to watch them except that [[TransformingMecha Giant Transforming Robots]] are inherently cool. It could be argued that Creator/MichaelBay's career rests on taking a premise and making it cool.

* During the BP oil spill Russia suggested that the United States use a strategic nuclear bomb to stop the oil. When many expressed their doubts to this actually working, Russia revealed that they had secretly been using this very tactic for years with a 90% success rate. ''Actually what there are is reports that they sealed some gas and maybe oil wells decades ago this way but there seem to be no sources on these reports. Any such use today would be a treaty violation, nor do we have any hard data at all about its alleged use in the past ''

* I'll go ahead and make a case for ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' during the dinosaur sequences set to Stravinsky's ''Rite of Spring''. It needs to be said that the science of the 1940's was drastically different from what we know today. This comes into play most mainly during the infamous battle between the Stegosaurus and the Tyrannosaurus Rex, mainly in the get that such a face-off never happened, as the Stegosaurus predated the Tyrannosaurus Rex, having lived in the Jurassic period, and not the Cretaceous. That's not to mention a few anatomy errors of both. But still... No one's complaining. Wicked music, great animation, incredible synchronization? Sit back and relax.

* ''{{Painkiller}}'': Why is one of the bosses an enormous zombie[=/=]FrankensteinsMonster? Why do your weapons include a [[SwissArmyWeapon divine weed whacker with a laser grapple, a shotgun that can fire freezing blasts, a combined rotary cannon and rocket launcher, and a strange weapon that fires shurikens and lightning]]? Why can your character [[SuperMode turn into a demon]], becoming invincible, killing nearly everything in one hit with blasts of inexplicable force, and slowing down time? Because it's cool.
