* A fairly common joke on commentary when an opponent gets knocked out cold is that the referee could count to 100 and the pin would still be successful.

ConspicuousConsumption and AbsurdlyHighStakesGame often involves this. Compare SerialEscalation, SequelEscalation, TimTaylorTechnology, Administrivia/TheSameButMore, ComicalOverreacting, RankInflation, LoudOfWar, ReadingsAreOffTheScale, LoudnessWar, and LensmanArmsRace.

If a trope is taken to an unusually high degree, it's an ExaggeratedTrope. If it's taken to an '''unprecedentedly''' high degree, ''then'' it's taken Up To Eleven.

* What's the difference between a musician, an engineer, and an entrepreneur? A musician says "This amp goes up to 11!" An engineer says "It has the same amount of power, all they did was add an additional designation to divide that power." An entrepreneur says "For the right price I can get you one that goes up to 12."

* Wrestling/KingKongBundy has, as a central part of his gimmick, the "five-count". Normal pinfalls go to a three-count; when Bundy pins someone, to show how badly he's beaten them, he holds up a hand and yells "FIVE!", demanding the referee count to five instead.

Wrestling/BigELangston also used the five-count gimmick during his NXT run.

For those who aren't into electric guitar, "Taking it up to eleven" is a reference to the maximum volume setting on a guitar amplifier. In a nice example of {{Defictionalization}}, Marshall came out with an amp that went up to 11, mostly in response to the trope being used in "Film/ThisIsSpinalTap." Later, many Marshall amplifiers began to sport 0-20 volume knobs, essentially taking the trope itself Up To Eleven.
