* ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' took what could have been a cheap knock-off show and turned it into [[RuleOfCool pure awesome]] through a combination of GenreSavvy and this trope. Zurg gets extra points for being DangerouslyGenreSavvy...[[CardCarryingVillain most of the time]].

* Franchise/{{Lego}}'s ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}''- a DarkerAndEdgier, MerchandiseDriven ScienceFantasy series powered by RuleOfCool. It starts out with a bunch of {{cyborg}} {{Hobbits}} living in [[ElementalNation Elemental Tribes]] on a SchizoTech PatchworkMap Island being terrorized by a mysterious BigBad. Then a [[FiveManBand Six Man Band]] of heroes with [[MaskOfPower magic masks]] and ElementalPowers ([[PersonalityPowers that conveniently match their personalities]]) comes along to fight the [[MonsterOfTheWeek various beasties he sends after them]], before confronting the BigBad himself and learning about ThePowerOfFriendship. The series then starts deconstructing a lot of the tropes- it turns out [[AllMythsAreTrue the myths may not be entirely true]], that the SchizoTech is left over from an [[ApocalypseHow apocalypse]] [[LaserGuidedAmnesia no-one remembers]], and the impossible PatchworkMap island [[ThatsNoMoon may not be an island after all...]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'''s premise reads like every single TheHerosJourney cliché you can think of: RidiculouslyAverageGuy is told by TheObiWan that he's actually prophesied as TheChosenOne and joins up with a spunky ActionGirl love interest to save the world from a hammy villain. And the film makes it all awesome. [[spoiler:The fact that the entire story comes from, or at least is heavily influenced by, the imagination of a child also justifies all of it.]]

Compare SerialEscalation, ExaggeratedTrope. A work that is verifiably like this can be said to be TropeOverdosed.
