** In movie, YuGiOhTheDarkSideOfDimensions, Kaiba ''slams'' his hand into the stone floor, then his fist plunges into the stone releasing bursts of light. He then says in the most straining voice he can manifest the word "Draw". But yells in in a similar fashion to Yami's infamous "DORO! MONSTA CARDO!". And pulls his arm around him by at least ''225 degrees''. And the the the ground begins to crack as he summons Obelisk the Tormentor.

** In the ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' movie, Izzy redirects hundreds of emails to Diaboromon to slow him down and allow their Digimon to finish him off. What makes it this trope is Izzy's over-the-top line while all he's doing is ''redirecting emails''.

What makes it this trope is Izzy's over-the-top line while all he's doing is ''redirecting emails''.[[note]]This is a dub line only. The dub, like many, was notorious for adding extra dialogue and in general trying to pump up the Awesomeitude. This also extended to adding epic music - including to this very scene, in Japan there is very subdued peaceful instrumental music during the Omegamon beatdown of Diaboromon. In English? High intensity lyric filled music to really ramp it up.[[/note]]

** Yami Bakura made eating a steak so epic and terrifying that it was censored in the dub.

** You would think that something as simple as a word-chain game like Shiritori cannot fall under this trope, but no: the Flügels turned Shiritori into a life-or-death game by making everything that is appear or disappear, depending on whether it currently exists or not. [[spoiler:Sora and Shiro use this to defeat their enemy Jibril, who formerly survived a hydrogen bomb (on the FIRST turn!), with a hypernova by removing Coulomb interaction from the universe, thus causing an artificial Big Bang.]]

* ''Anime/CControl'': it's a show about financial transactions carried out by way of elaborate shounen-style battles on an Eldritch and TechnicolorBackground. And then about halfway through the ''real'' [[DealWithTheDevil Mind]] [[CosmicHorrorStory Screw]] sets in.

* Being a deconstruction of the FightingSeries PlayedForLaughs, ''Manga/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.

** The [[RuleOfFunny king of this trope]] might be Uryuu who occasionally displays lightning-fast, incredibly accurate... ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSA069pHfZw sewing]]'' skills, complete with the same stern concentration he has when fighting or speaking of [[SeriousBusiness quincy pride]]. It's also applied to him more generally as he'll make his own uniform for battle, solely for the sake of looking cool. He even has a [[CrazyPrepared back-up cape]] just in case the one he's wearing gets damaged.

* ''LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokuroChan'' 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.
* The grand poo-bah of this trope could very well be the [[{{Calvinball}} senseless]] [[CrazyEnoughToWork wonder]] that goes on in ''every episode'' of ''Manga/BoboboboBobobo'', from using one's ''[[ImprobableWeapon nose]] [[PrehensileHair hairs]]'' as a fighting style, making people bald SeriousBusiness, constant MindScrew, letting loose a surreal [[{{Cloudcuckooland}} world]] inside the [[AfroAsskicker main character's]] ''[[FunnyAfro afro]]'', holding contests out of ''blowing into fans'', super power-inducing jackets, using ''[[{{Fartillery}} farts]]'' as weapons of doom, and on top of that, being so purely and utterly random '''''ANYTHING''''' can be transformed into an captivating battle- such as hanging upside down from bungee cords or just sleeping! Even facing an enemy with geometry-based powers can become epic- because when you're Bobobo, you can shut those 3-D-reliant moves down by turning reality into a '''''literal''''' ''2-D video game!''

* Everything about ''Manga/CaptainTsubasa'' is done in awesome fashion with slow-motion and special effects. To count -- soccer balls catching on fire, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciA3S-1EOGM shoots that are strong enough to rip clothing and ''send an adversary flying'']], inner monologues that sometimes evolve to ''mental dialogues'', special kicks that need to be ''shouted'' before used...
** Altough nothing compares to the ''awesomeness'' that are Kojiro Hyuga's training sessions. To learn a new kind of special kick, he usually has to ''shoot balls through waves on a beach'' or '' shoot balls to pierce through trees by summoning lightning''. I'm dead serious.

* Lelouch Lamperouge of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' is a textbook example of this. With a fabulous, stylish Batman-esque costume, Lelouch, [[LargeHam with his flair and love for drama]], fired up his popularity amongst Japanese resistance cells against Britannia with his exaggerated gestures, speeches, and [[TheChessmaster ability to pull off outrageous plans]] that [[RefugeInAudacity most would consider suicide]]. Examples include:
** The keyboard-controlled Knightmare Frames, which let him show off his AWESOME typing skills. Suck it, GUI. With [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic keyboards that sound like church organs, no less.]]
** His mechanical diabolical looking [[spoiler:[[http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a182/photoperson17/GC/1190.jpg Clothes hanger]]]] made in the same aesthetic style as his Zero suit.
** He makes something as mundane as taking a (very special) contact lens on an off [[strike:FANTASTIC]] [[strike:FABULOUS]] ''FABU-LOUCH''!
