* This is common in {{Shounen}} series. Cooking manga seems to be the [[UpToEleven biggest]] [[RefugeInAudacity offenders]], but practically any series where the main characters are engaged in a duel of skill will have an example of this trope. * In ''{{Hikaru No Go}}'', when someone is demonstrating exceptional skill in the game, their fingertips glow as they place down the stone. Somewhat [[MundaneMadeAwesome over-dramatic]] for a manga/anime about a ''board game''.

** ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' has a justified case. The ''Menzoberranzan'' AD&D2 boxed set introduced "frills" -- bogus rituals, spell components and special effect cantrips made to look as parts of the spell. Drow wizards use this to [[BluffTheEavesdropper mask from unwanted observers]] identities, properties and sometimes nature of their spells. As an added bonus, this misdirects enemy plans based on spying, as under duress the wizard can drop all unrelated act and cast the same spells much faster.

And with perverted sense of humor it's worth kissing a frog if your rival will have to repeat it every freaking time while trying to figure out what he does wrong. *** 3e ''Magic of Faerun'' introduced Spell Thematics feat, which adds some cosmetic feature (like wailing skulls or lightning sparks) to appearance of spells, which makes them harder to identify, and slightly boosts power of tweaked spells.

Wick fix due to trope rename. If an example was deleted, it's because this trope is about boring or ordinary being passed off as awesome, and the example doesn't show that.

* This is common in {{Shounen}} series. Cooking manga seems to be the [[BeyondTheImpossible biggest]] [[RefugeInAudacity offenders]], but practically any series where the main characters are engaged in a duel of skill will have an example of this trope. * In ''{{Hikaru No Go}}'', when someone is demonstrating exceptional skill in the game, their fingertips glow as they place down the stone. And if anyone doesn't know, this is a manga/anime about a BOARD GAME.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' overuses the [[PowerGlows "shining light"]] variety. Any attack involving a body part causes that part to glow, beam attacks charge by SuckingInLines, anything that's about to explode [[PreExplosionGlow shoots out rays of light]], etc.
