* In ''VideoGame/RockOfAges 2'', the final boss fight [[RageAgainstTheHeavens against God himself]] ends up being, fitting the [[WidgetSeries absurd, Pythonesque tone of the game]], [[spoiler:a ''foosball match'', with the players alternating between controlling the ball]]. With a [[AstralFinale swirling constellation background]] and [[OminousLatinChanting legitimately epic music]].

* The aluminum bat power-up in ''[[BackyardSports Backyard Baseball]]''. The bat hits the ball, then the ball goes flying high (sometimes over a very, very tall wall) while a whooshing sound plays and immediately the character's {{Leitmotif}} (which is often CrowningMusicOfAwesome) plays.

** Wii Fit Trainer's entire fighting style consists of high-speed, high-impact yoga. This includes a method of breathing that causes nearby opponents to explode, using hula hoops to achieve flight, and shooting [[KiManipulation energy blasts]] by collecting solar energy. Then there's her [[LimitBreak Final Smash]], where she shoots out silhouettes of herself as she turns normal fitness instructions into {{Badass Boast}}s like "Here, I'll show you" or "Now, let's try it together."

Added DiffLines:

** Aria's intonation during her famous establishing scene: "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Don't]]. ''[[PrecisionFStrike Fuck]]''. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis With Aria]]." It was a clearly over-the-top method of setting up a ForcedMeme that actually worked, launching Aria to EnsembleDarkhorse status.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] don't [[BreathWeapon breathe fire]] so much as [[RealityWarper wish it into existence]] with the [[MakeMeWannaShout Thu'um]]. Whichever smart-ass wrote the loading screen dialogs took this fact to the conclusion that when two dragons fight, they're really having an intense verbal debate.
** Paarthurnax does pretty much confirm this in game when after he teaches you a word for fire breath he tells you to use it on him, and once that is done he states "It has been so long since I talked to another in my own language" (Paraphrased) confirming they talk like that most of the time. The normal day to day life of a dragon would be the most awesome thing ever.
** So does that make this an inversion? Awesome Made Mundane?
** The "Throw Voice" shout definitely qualifies. The Dragonborn uses the Thu'um to distract foes, causing a goofy, high-pitched voice to begin hurling insults at them from an unknown source. Unless this Shout was created by the Dragon Priests, one has to wonder what situation would lead a Dragon to ''ever'' feel the need to hurl the insult, "Hey, Skeever Butt!" at someone?

[[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] Dragons]], for whom their LanguageOfMagic is so intrinsic, don't [[BreathWeapon breathe fire]] so much as [[RealityWarper wish it command fire into existence]] with using the [[MakeMeWannaShout Thu'um]]. Whichever smart-ass wrote One of the ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' loading screen dialogs screens took this fact to the conclusion that when two dragons fight, they're really having an intense verbal debate.
** Paarthurnax does pretty much confirm
''verbal debate''. Essentially, they [[InvertedTrope Invert]] the trope, making it Awesome Made Mundane. Paarthurnax, a [[HeelFaceTurn friendly]] dragon, essentially confirms this in game when in-game when, after he teaches you a word for fire breath he tells [[PlayingWithFire Fire Breath]], asks you to use it on him, and once that is done he states "It has been so long since I talked to another in my own language" (Paraphrased) confirming they talk like that most of the time. The normal day to day life of a dragon would be the most awesome thing ever.

(Paraphrased).
** The "Throw Voice" shout definitely qualifies.in ''Skyrim'' plays it straight.. The Dragonborn uses the Thu'um to distract foes, causing a goofy, high-pitched voice to begin hurling insults at them from an unknown source. Unless this Shout was created by the [[ReligionOfEvil Dragon Priests, Priests]], one has to wonder what situation would lead a Dragon to ''ever'' feel the need to hurl the insult, "Hey, Skeever [[RodentsOfUnusualSize Skeever]] Butt!" at someone?
