The organic Sister Trope
to Instant Awesome, Just Add Mecha
. A work is not about Kaiju
or other giant monsters, but throws them in anyway.
, or some Lawyer-Friendly Cameo

- Name comes from Megatokyo, where there was a service called this. In addition, there was a rampage by The Alcoholic uncle of the Gamera family.
- The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters, and the second film had them using positive ghost slime to turn the Statue of Liberty into one.
- An episode of Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok had a shrine statue turned into one when imbued with a lot of dark magic.
