* Satirically invoked and played for all the laughs the trope is worth by Music/TomLehrer whenever deemed in/appropriate.
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrbv40ENU_o I'm off to drop the bomb]]'' is prehaps his most triumphant example.

* Deconstructed in ''WebComic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'', since in the nondescript spacefuture anyone can destroy a planet with the push of a button, war is fought on 'public opinion', and the point of it all is to say 'War is ''Cool''' and make the raddest, coolest army around...which has left the soldiers they grew and genetically modified with serious hang-ups, knowing they could be modified at any moment to increase public visibility, or mentally fucked with just so they can be 'more like Batman'. [[spoiler:Of course, this can also backfire on the army, as marketing decided the Commander punching the Admiral would be 'mad bitching' and will allow one punch with no repercussions, preferably in public.]]
-->'''Jones:''' So you're saying that in the future they send actual humans to fight and die for the sake of looking really badass?
-->'''Commander:''' Don' get me wrong, there's plenty a'real respectable causes t'fight for. But when people run outta those, it don't take 'em long t'find all sorts'a stupid shit t'keep busy with.

* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' films. It's right there in the title. The enemies are dehumanized (faceless stormtroopers or mindless droids) and portrayed as evil. The Rebels are ragtag bunch of heroes and the Empire as an evil oppressive regime. In any case, all battle scenes in the series are played for action and excitement.

* [[HistoricalDomainCharacter General Ludendorff]] from ''Film/{{Wonder Woman|2017}}'' is obsessed with war, to the point that he murders the German High Command to try and prolong World War I. [[MadScientist Dr. Maru]] seems to share this, although it's implied that she has a more general [[NightmareFetishist death fetish]].
--> ''"You know your ancient Greeks? They understood that war is a god. A god that requires human sacrifice. And in exchange, war gives man purpose. Meaning. A chance to rise above his petty mortal little self. And be courageous. Noble. Better."''

* The film adaptations of ''HenryV'' (see Theater below) can't help but use this trope to some extent, Creator/LaurenceOlivier's more enthusiastically than KennethBranagh's.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCrnF844_ww March of Cambeadth]] is probably one of the most jovial sounding. (On the album, it's bracketed by a sad ballad about leaving your sweetheart for battle and a lament of PyrrhicVictory, but as "Cambreadth" is by far Alexander's most famous work, this escapes most people's notice.)
