* ''FanFic/PoniesAndDragons'' has this in spades, most explicitly with a game of ''{{TabletopGame/Go}}'' played by two titanic dragons (using huge boulders as game pieces, natch). Their casual game and friendly trash-talk draws an enraptured crowd of smaller dragons, who treat it as an intense battle/standoff.
** The very premise itself. Who knew the cast of a ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic My Little Pony]]'' show playing board games could be so entertaining?

* Arguably, the entire town of Columbus, Indiana. A small town in the US with several buildings designed by modernist architects, resulting in the town having more national architectural landmarks than several large cities.



* Sixteen words: [[http://www.neatorama.com/2010/04/16/betty-white-in-a-metal-bikini-wielding-a-flaming-chainsaw-while-riding-a-john-ritter-centaur/ Betty White in a Metal Bikini Wielding a Flaming Chainsaw While Riding a John Ritter Centaur]].
** No, that is definitely awesome.

** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] when introducing the line ups for the visiting team. The boredom in the announcer can result in extreme MoodWhiplash.

* Starting lineups in sports can be just a bland reading of names. Or, you can combine with ThemeMusicPowerUp and a highlight reel for your home team, like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIny_09AIHQ this]]:

* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7455421/1/Neon_Knights Neon Knights]]'' has a fantastic example in the second chapter. [[HotBlooded Mari]] [[ChewingTheScenery Illustrious]] [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Makinami]] takes on a [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny fourth-grade math test]]. With PurpleProse and [[ShoutOut Shout-Outs]] to ''GGundam'', ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'', ''GurrenLagann'', and TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}. Even the line break separating this scene from the one before it is a massive example of this. And it all ''works''.

* "[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9153455/1/Proximity-to-Balance Proximity to Balance]]" is a set of ''{{Gundam Wing}}'' one-shots that depict the five Gundam Pilots, now Preventers, as they deal with life after war. The fourth entry, "Normalcy", has them plotting out and treating even simple errands like grocery or department store shopping as missions as a means of acclimating. IE:

* The Olympics or any other world-class sporting competition. Watch two world-class table tennis players. Watch the joys and triumphs and agonies over track and field events and running. Watch the intensity and emotion over something as simple as a 100 meter sprint or a basketball game or volleyball or any of the sports, really.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' does this to anything worth mentioning, then paints it black, covers it in skulls, and sets it on fire.
** Unless it paints it red, because "red wunz go fasta!"
*** And then ''they do.''
** And then there's this [[MachineWorship Adeptus Mechanicus]] quote about ''turning on an engine'':
-->Toll the Great Bell Once!
-->Pull the Lever forward to engage the
-->Piston and Pump...
-->Toll the Great Bell Twice!
-->With push of Button fire the Engine
-->And spark Turbine into life...
-->Toll the Great Bell Thrice!
-->Sing Praise to the
-->God of All Machines
