* Ever silly, a RecapEpisode of ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' had quite possibly the most epic scene of setting up dominoes that has ever been made.

* ''LightNovel/KoreWaZombieDesuKa'' has an series of epic games of Jenga, Mahjong, Twister and others, all for a [[SeriousBusiness cup of pudding]].

Added DiffLines:
* This is the source of most of the comedy in ''Sakamoto Desu Ga''. Sakamoto makes everything look cool no matter how mundane.

* The last episode of ''MacademiWasshoi'' features an intensive manga drawing scene complete with evil overlord pencil techniques, maniacal laughs, and pencils leaving streak marks across the sky... all too similar to [[Manga/DeathNote a certain other anime]].

* ''{{Nichijou}}'' is full of this trope {{played for laughs}}. [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/my-ordinary-life/episode-1-motivation-573100 A robot girl that's chasing a cat accidentally bumps into a boy, AND CREATES A ATOMIC EXPLOSION THAT DESTROYS TOKYO! And a dropped piece of sausage is a world shaking, life or death event.]]

* Being a deconstruction of the FightingSeries PlayedForLaughs, ''MutekiKanbanMusume'' is a GagSeries that is a SliceOfLife anime… except for their protagonists, {{BurgerFool}}s in a shopping district, who live in a WorldOfHam doing this trope practically all the time. The picture of this page is Kankuro doing mundane tasks with the same enthusiasm he trains to defeat his rival.

* LightNovel/{{Baccano}}: What terrifying event upon the Flying Pussyfoot drives Isaac and Miria to horrified tears? It's not the hijackers, or the apparent appearance of the [[UrbanLegend Rail Tracer]]. Nor is it the mutilated, unrecognizable corpses scattering the train cars. The truly terrifying thing is the sudden realization that ''they forgot to get Ennis a present!'' '''[[BigNo NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!]]'''

* Tamaki from ''{{Ouran High School Host Club}}'' explains the ways of the common people in this fashion. In the first episode, he gets ''a round of applause'' for announcing he's going to give ''instant coffee'' a try, to the bafflement of Haruhi.

** Mah-jong? [[BitchInSheepsClothing The head cheerleader]] [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty cheats by using her big tits to relay messages while her team tries to psych out the opposition by cheering]] and in kind, Tamao channels YuGiOh in [[AwesomenessByAnalysis calling out and disrupting her tactics]] then TheJuggernaut by mowing through (read: fucking without cumming) the ''entire squad'' before finishing her off.

* The dodgeball match in the ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' [[ComicBookAdaptation supplementary manga]] of the second season, which had [[SuperSoldier Fate]] vowing to protect Nanoha, performing a [[InaSingleBound Super Jump]] to keep said promise, and having a final showdown with [[ThoseTwoGuys Suzuka]], who had now been completely absorbed in the competitive atmosphere ("As expected from Fate-chan!"), complete with internal [[CombatCommentator Combat Commentary]]. It ended with Fate losing both the match and her consciousness after Suzuka successfully countered her nigh-impossible to dodge attack, which was depicted in slow-mo.

* ''HikaruNoGo'' relies on this in order to keep the interest of viewers who aren't familiar with Go. There are dynamic camera angles, and alternating backgrounds and ocassionally depicting the Go board as a solar system because of the ''star'' points.

* The trope is taken to its logical extreme with ''Anime/LuckyStar'''s Meito Anisawa (''Anisawa Meito'': ''Ani Me''), who turns his pursuit to sell something to "Legendary Girl A" Konata into something almost ''DragonBall''-like.

* ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'' does this a lot too. Although the way techniques in the manga are portrayed in a way such that you realize that the cool effects are purely symbolic, the anime features fast runners becoming surrounded by bright colorful ''battle auras''. Because! Sena is...''running!'' But! Not only is he ''running!'' He's running ''FAST!!'' The fact that he's sometimes animated running like Shaggy from ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' makes this even worse. * ''LightNovel/{{Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro chan}}'' plays Sakura-kun's death and resurrection in this manner in the final episode of the first series. Normally, this would be a legitimately dramatic scene... but in this series, this happens at least {{once an episode}} and is played purely for comedy, so handling it as if it were actually dramatic only makes it funnier -- which was probably their intention. * Spoofed ruthlessly in the second season of ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'': Itoshiki, tired of casual conversation, tries saying an incredibly casual phrase in an earth-shattering dramatic way. It turns out to be very fun to do, and all of his students take turns saying casual things extremely dramatically. It gets even better when they start practicing extremely dramatic reactions to the above statements.

** ''TeamMedicalDragon'' and ''Godhand Teru''. If these mangas are to be believed, performing surgery is the next most badass thing after being a ninja.

* ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' parodies the living daylights out of this trope. About once an episode, Keroro tries to turn his dialogue into a dramatic declamation... about vacuuming... or model building... or going to the toy store...
