* Each Equestria Girls movie scales up and adds more action, magic, and main antagonists than the last. [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls The first]] only had Sunset Shimmer and the Fall Formal. [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks The second]] has [[TerribleTrio the Sirens]] and a school-wide BattleOfTheBands. [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsFriendshipGames The third]] has an entire rival school, motocross, archery, a ManEatingPlant, portals to other worlds opening, and more anthro transformations than the previous two movies combined.

* ''FinalDestination'' series: How many more objects can fall off a shelf or table and accidentally flip a switch to activate/deactivate some machinery? How many more car doors will mysteriously fail to open from the inside when characters are trying to get out? How many more leaking or failing machines can the creators insert into the films? How many more elaborate can these accidents be contrived? How much more gory can the deaths get?

* ''Quick Change''. After witnessing a faux-medieval event in a poor Hispanic neighborhood with two men ''jousting on bicycles with rakes'', Loomis sums up the mood perfectly.

* The transition from Phase 1 to Phase 2 in the MarvelCinematicUniverse brings out escalation often.
** Around half-way through ''Film/TheAvengers'', Hawkeye almost crashes the helicarrier. In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', [[spoiler:Cap, Black Widow and Falcon]] succeed in crashing ''three''.
** The climax of ''Film/IronMan'' was IronMan versus a man in a giant PoweredArmor. The climax of ''Film/IronMan2'' is Iron Man and War Machine against an army of robots plus a man in a giant PoweredArmor. Cue ''Film/IronMan3'', it's IronMan, WarMachine and an army of PoweredArmor (including a giant one, though it doesn't fight) against an army of superpowered humans.

** ''Film/TheAvengers'' was in both America and Europe, with the EvilPlan culminating in an invasion of [[BigApplesauce New York City]]. ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' doubles the continents (America, Europe, Africa and Asia) and has an even larger scale climax, [[spoiler:where a whole city is turned into a FloatingContinent so it can trigger an [[ApocalypseHow extinction-level]] ColonyDrop.]]
** Phase 3 itself is shaping up to be one before it even begins simply due to size - the previous phases were each comprised of six films. Phase 3? ''Ten''.

* ''KungFuHustle'' takes {{Wuxia}} UpToEleven. And then [[MemeticMutation OVER 9000]] And then even further. [[EverybodyWasKungFuFighting How many more kung-fu fighting]] [[{{Badass}} Badasses]] fighting nothing but [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomp Battles]] against one another can be squeezed into one single movie?
