* ''Anime/KillLaKill'': '''''Everything.''''' Befitting the successor '''''[[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann TENGEN TOPPA! GURREN LAGANN!]]'''''
** Actually quoted verbatim by Ryuko in episode 22.
-->-- "Jeez, even your apologies are turned up to eleven."

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' starts using this a lot most notably with [[CrazyAwesome Jack Rakan]], who exists solely to continually ramp up the amount of ''''AWESOME'''' the series contains. He ''starts'' with summoning a [[{{BFS}} sword the size of a building]], and only gets more ridiculous from there. He also seems to be rubbing off on Negi, as the entire Negi/Kotaro vs. Rakan/Kage fight in the tournament was essentially a contest to see who could turn the awesomeness knob higher. [[spoiler: After five separate IAmNotLeftHanded moments from Negi, Kotaro turning into a CanisMajor, and Rakan nearly destroying the arena with one punch, the knob gets broken off and the match ends in a draw.]]
** There is also the school's tendency to push all school tropes UpToEleven. WackyHomeroom? Check. ElaborateUniversityHigh? Check. SchoolFestival? Check!

* In the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' episode "A Promise is a Promise", Dr. Namba tells his Electabuzz to "turn it up to eleven," as he turns up his rage machine to greatly increase the Pokémon's power.

* ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' takes every JerkJock stereotype you can think of and stretches it to logical limits in the form of Agon. Over-developed sense of entitlement? Said to be ''the'' most talented athlete of the century and believes anyone who lacks natural talent (even if they work hard) doesn't deserve to exist. Gets away with anything? Car jacked a woman without getting so much as a scolding. A bully? Aimed a football at the head of a little boy in a wheelchair and seems to mug people on a regular basis. Popular with the ladies? Popular enough to get away with car theft. Chauvinistic pig? Is only relatively nice towards pretty girls, and sees nothing wrong with kicking an ugly girl in the back of the head. And if you're a pretty girl who ignores him, he isn't above using violence to get you to notice him. Jerk is an understatement (to say the least), he's practically a sociopath.
** Although he can't get away with everything. The cops left him alone because [[spoiler:Hiruma had the threat notebook out]].

* ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' starts out as story of three guys a girl and a thing traveling worlds.....then it gets more and more mind-screwing, and the mind-screwing is taken Up to Eleven in the last 5 or so volumes.
** That thing has the most mentions of mind-screw on its page.
** Unfortunately but predictably, it ended up dragging its sister series ''Manga/{{xxxHOLiC}}'' along for the ride, turning what was on its own a simple series into a mind-screw in its own right. With the two combined, they've just become one big head-hurting mess that's nearly impossible to completely make sense of. ''[[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments EVEN THE CREATORS HAVE ADMITTED THEY ARE CONFUSED WITH WHAT HAPPENED]].''

** Truthfully, Kaiser tends to show off a ''lot'' during the run of the show.
* [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]] goes beyond any sane limits all over the place. Crazy martial arts? It starts off with martial arts figure skating and only gets nuttier from there, and while martial arts rhythmic gymnastics doesn´t sound so bad, martial arts cheerleading or eating certainly does. Then there's Principal Kuno´s obsession with haircuts, Happosai's lechery, Mousse pulling out more and more insane weapons from his hyperspace -including a multiple ton bomb and a ''training potty''.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' went all the way up to eleven. Maybe Twelve if there is something over this trope.
