** While otherwise it's a fairly good ''Franchise/MonsterHigh'' movie, ''Freaky Fusion'' tries to use the hybrid monsters as a metaphor for interracial people, but it's so awkwardly done and {{anvilicious}} that it falls into this trope.

* The ''Franchise/MonsterHigh'' episode "Fright On" seems to be a serious take on racism, with Van Hellscream and Crabgrass trying to start what amounts to a race war between vampires and werewolves to get the school shut down; just for good measure, they also try to murder several prominent characters in a rather unpleasant manner. This features several "Narm!" moments, including Frankie's realization that Crabgrass is imitating Bloodgood by watching her drink with her finger, which she only suspects after hearing Crabgrass-as-Bloodgood call Nightmare a "stupid animal"; funnily enough, she seems to ignore Crabgrass' terrible acting (calling Frankie "Francine", which Bloodgood never does), inability to duplicate abilities (Bloodgood almost never wears her head in her office, something Crabgrass literally cannot imitate) and just plain out of character acting (keeping Nightmare shackled to the wall).

** Heart of Ice is an iconic episode that was remembered for being great story and giving Mr.Freeze his famous modern origin and turning him into a TragicVillain. So at the end of the episode, how is this serious,dramatic villain defeated? Batman busts a can of chicken noodle soup open on Freeze's helmet,which ends up defeating him.

** Any time Poison Ivy starts making hammy eco-terrorist speeches. Yes, the woman's insane, but come on now! Bruce Timm and company seem to have realized the narminess too; in "The New Batman Adventures" and comics set in its continuity, the speeches have all but vanished. The problem honestly lay in the delivery--Creator/DianePershing's insane anger sounded very forced. Ivy's insane ranting worked much better when the character was eerily calm.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe1979'' has cheesy [[TheSeventies seventies]] animation. Mr. Tumnus is especially narmy, especially during his scene with Lucy that is supposed to be very sad ("I'm a BAAAAD FAUN!!!"). (Yes, that line comes from the C. S. Lewis book; no, it doesn't help.) The White Witch practically ''[[NoIndoorVoice screams]]'' every other line.

** Aang's pure emotional turmoil at the thought of "killing" a watermelon. Yes, it ''represented'' how he felt about his apparent need to go against his beliefs and kill the Fire Lord. Yes, it's okay for him to feel conflicted about killing Ozai. But this was just a ''melon''.

** Made worse with the Creator/CartoonNetwork version, in which they (inexplicably) removed most of the violence in the movie. Now, imagine the "Who's your daddy" scene WITHOUT the entire beating scene to put it in context. Yes, Creator/CartoonNetwork had problems with the violence, but was perfectly fine with a sweaty, seemingly nude Lex who apparently mounted Superman and just finished raping him patting him on the cheek affectionately and asking "Who's your daddy?" Narm at its best.

** Depending on how much New-Agey "noble close-to-the-Earth natives being invaded by the horrible, greedy, rapacious Europeans" morality you can handle being shoveled down your throat, the ''entire movie'' might qualify as Narm if it wasn't that so much of it isn't even SoBadItsGood. However, "Savages" is so unashamedly {{Anvilicious}} it's hilarious, making one of the few parts of the movie that's actually enjoyable if you're over the age of, say, 10. Well, that, and the scene of John Smith straddling a cannon (no, seriously) as it's hoisted onto the ship in the opening. ''Subtle'', Disney.

** One particular one was the adaptation of ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' issue 4, where Iron Man introduces the team to Captain America. A split second later, there's a close up of the team, their heads bunched together... and Giant Man giving us the most ridiculous "DURRRR" face ever! Doesn't help that his voice actor sounds just as goofy!

** The classic opening scenes with Turaga Vakama's narration explaining the basic backstories behind each movie, using colorful stones to represent the major players. The visuals and music score both add to the sense of epicness, but then you realize: these are just rocks doing stuff in a sandpit!
