** You can also download some trailers that are mindblowingly difficult to deliver, which makes it even more cooler. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkEXbQXtpBQ Like a Baobab Tree.]]

* ''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G.]]'' makes waitressing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWfJRKzJdMM look cool and exciting]], by having them duke it out in [[SupernaturalMartialArts a MMA]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvTsagnxr0o competition]], for the title of "Virgin Goddess". Then adds [[NotJustATournament nefarious schemes by the group sponsoring the tournament]] and [[GattacaBabies genetically enhanced hybrids]] to the mix. They may as well call it ''[[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters The Queen of Fighters.]]''
* The ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series lives off this trope. While trials are important and serious affairs in real life, in the game a trial is an epic battle of wits. With [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome theme music]], [[SpeedStripes action lines]], people reacting to arguments as if they have been ''[[FaceFault physically struck]]'', and [[GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger finger pointing]]... lots and ''lots'' of finger pointing. That it remains hilariously self-aware of its over-the-top nature only makes the games that much more appealing.

** ''Ultimate VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' brings Phoenix Wright into the cast, complete with a potent, spammable FingerPokeOfDoom when in Turnabout mode. His ultimate attack? "[[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath The real culprit...IS YOU!]]" Yes, this means he can [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu defeat a world-destroying horror]] by ''providing evidence of guilt and [[GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger giving it the pointer finger!]]''[[note]] It is, in fact, the second most damaging attack ''in the game''.[[/note]]

** Note that this series successfully managed to make everyday lawyers into Badass videogame characters; [[BadassNormal everyday lawyers that can go toe-to-toe with superheroes, takeing on Galactus and saving the world!]] [[ItWillNeverCatchOn Try pitching that to someone in the early days of videogames!]]

* In the PS2 and Wii rereleases of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', Leon can get a gangster outfit with a CoolHat. If you hit the reload button while using the infinite ammo Chicago Typewriter, he'll instead reach up and adjust it. On the third push, the camera angle changes to low-angle, he flings the hat into the air, and catches and dons it with a pose more suited to someone from ''HighSchoolMusical''.

* Near the end of ''ZorkGrandInquisitor'', Grand Inquisitor Yannick gives a speech, in which he praises the vast technological advances of the past hundred years. They're actually bloated praise for wonder knives, the Clapper, and ice cubes.

** The opening cinematic of ''Fable III'' has the mock-epic escape of [[FanNickname the Rebellious Chicken]].
* The opening video for ''GaiaOnline'''s MMO ''zOMG!'' features a character ''putting on some rings'' to epic music. The rings then burst into flame.

* ''VideoGame/{{QWOP}}'' congratulates you and calls you a national hero for running 100 meters, no matter how long it took. Subverted, in that this is a game where you have to manually coordinate moving your calves and thighs and [[NintendoHard even running just 10 meters means you're doing pretty good]], so it's not ''entirely'' mundane.
