It's exciting. It makes you a stronger, better person. It breeds {{Badass|Army}}es. [[Theatre/{{Pippin}} It's finer than Spring.]] The sacrifices may be extreme, but are extremely noble, maybe even saintly. In many ways the opposite of WarIsHell. [[BloodKnight Some people deeply enjoy waging war]], rather than just endure it. Others might say, "LookWhatICanDoNow."

" The ShellShockedVeteran might have a different view on the matter, though.



--> ''"There was an artist called Michelangelo during the Renaissance. He was asked once how he worked. He simply said, I take a stone and chip off all the unnecessary bits. Got it? Beauty is something without unnecessary bits, without any rubbish. In war, there is only life and death, nothing unnecessary. War itself is beauty."''

* Oh heck [[HumansAreWarriors practically everyone's mythology]].



* Many games, especially those in the FirstPersonShooter genre, are included in this trope. Even those that [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing pay lipservice]] to a WarIsHell {{Aesop}} can't escape [[GameplayAndStorySegregation these themes being undermined]] by the fact that the player is presumably undertaking a simulation of war for fun.
** In ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', war is not only glorious, but ''funny'' [[IncrediblyLamePun as hell]], given all the people involved in the Gravel War (which as more of a MobWar between two extremely rich brothers that control thousands of corporations and outfit their mercenary armies in hats) are [[CrazyAwesome eccentric nutcases]] [[WorldOfHam who love yelling and swearing]] regardless of their backstories and nationalities.

* In ''Film/HussarBallad'', a Russian musical comedy, every main character would agree that the only real glory comes from fighting in the war.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE'', given the nature of the Veigan and how Kio couldn't even reason with any of them. Shows how sometimes one must use violence to destroy a side of fanatics.

* The Thraddash in ''[[StarControl Star Control II]]'' are a parody of this trope ([[ProudWarriorRaceGuy among other things]] ), what with them considering never-ending fighting a viable social scheme and seeing no problem with their species having blasted themselves back to Stone Age several times over.

Added DiffLines:

* ''LightNovel/SwordPrincessAltina''. Many soldiers, regardless of country of origin firmly believe this in the story. In Belgaria, this is justified by the fact that the Emperor deliberately set up a system where the only way ''out'' of poverty is to go into battle and gain many meritorious achievements, and woe be to anyone who complains about it. Other countries have different reasons, but the propaganda narrative is so thick, that soldiers of High Britannia's army in volume 5 tried to shoot, and kill, the crown princess in full view of the public just so they could have her war-mongering relative take the throne instead. [[spoiler: When they failed, Margaret sentenced the commander of that unit for execution, not for trying to kill the crown princess, or even for doing so in public, but for failing.]]
