* The duel over dumplings between Shifu and Po in ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' which ends the panda's training, starts out as this but by the end of the fight, when Po proves his mastery (and lack of upset) by claiming he's no longer hungry.
* ''WesternAnimation/WallE'' somehow manages to make the act of ''[[spoiler:a fat guy standing up]]'' look unbelievably awesome. Complete with Richard Strauss' ''Music/AlsoSprachZarathustra'' (a.k.a. "That really epic monolith music from the beginning of ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''"). But considering the fact that [[spoiler:it was probably the first time '''''in his entire life''''' that he managed to stand under his own power, and he was probably the only person in his or several previous ''generations'' to stand up, and he summoned the resolve to do so because ''the fate of humanity'' depended upon it]], this ''was'' awesome.
** [[spoiler: His WikiWalk was pretty damn awesome, since it resulted in him finally understanding ''why'' his life of leisure with nothing more to do each day than read the morning announcements was so totally unsatisfying and showing him what human life ''should'' be like.]]
** Also the character M-O. He doesn't have an ArmCannon, a CreepyMonotone or the ability to be able to [[FriendToAllLivingThings befriend every robot]]. He's just a small obsessive NeatFreak, but Pixar was still able to make him seem as awesome as possible.

'''M-O:''' Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-''whoa!''
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}'' turns SOUP-MAKING into the coolest freaking' thing ever!
** Ratatouille in general could be considered the personification of this trope. As Pixar themselves said, it stars a rat (an animal liked by few and outright hated by many) who spends his time cooking (a subject that is not well known for its excitement), and is set in [[CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys France]]. It was one of the best reviewed films of its year.
* PIXAR enjoys this trick. Check out [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRAfm5glLFY Carl's very precise morning routine]] in ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'', with epic music contrasted with his resigned/bored old man expression. (The music is "Habanera" from the opera ''Carmen''.)
* Speaking of Pixar (again), it turns out that in ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' Mr. Andersen sending Riley to her room is treated by his emotions like launching a nuke, complete with TwoKeyedLocks and going to DEFCON 2.

** The episode "D-Yikes!," a parody of ''[[Film/ThreeHundred 300]]'', features [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67KXHqNNJks Mrs. Garrison making coffee]]. In that same episode, an unknown lesbian character takes a potato chip... [[Manga/DeathNote and '''eats''' it.]]

** There's also the Cartoon Wars episodes. In one example, after Stan learns that an Islamic terrorist attack may result from a portrayal of Mohammed in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' and suggests they wait and see what happens, he follows it up by saying, "If we're still alive in the morning, (DramaticCloseup) then we'll know we're not dead."

* Most Franchise/{{Transformers}}' {{kibble|sAndBits}} (the bits of alt-mode that don't have a purpose in robot mode) just hang off their bodies uselessly. Bulkhead of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', however, can [[http://www.tfwiki.info/wiki/Image:Bulkheadchair.jpg transform his kibble into a chair.]] This is considered by the fandom to be pretty awesome, especially since one of his toys can actually do this.

** Then there was the time Bart and Skinner tortured each other with foods they were allergic to tied to a stick, which turned into a lengthy battle across the city, riding on top of cars and ending in a factory for (inexplicably) both products, all set to "[[Film/ThePhantomMenace Duel of]] [[AwesomeMusic/StarWars the fates]]".

** One of the segments of the episode ''Reincarnation'' spoofs Anime's over the top [[TransformationSequence Transformation Sequences]]. Hermie's sequence involves: his desk transforming into a suit of samurai armor, jumping down a hole that opens in the floor, landing in the cockpit of a waiting helicopter, said helicopter flying off, finally landing and the helicopter then transforming into... another desk, which he proceeds to do paperwork at.

* WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}} is basically the embodiment of the trope. Every episode is about the characters trying to play a simple game, which culminates in explosions, [[ChaseScene car chases]], and the like.
