[[caption-width-right:350:Arena concerts are all about this.]]

All forms of showing off in a work, to wow the audience. Frequently used to set the mood and serve the RuleOfCool.

For example, for LiveActionTV, this includes scenery, [[LightingTropes lighting]], props, costuming, makeup, background music, sound effects, and SpecialEffects in general. For ComicBooks, it includes things like coloring and lettering. And so on.

The name comes from Creator/{{Aristotle}}'s ''Literature/{{Poetics}}'' and is used more broadly here. He considered using spectacle to cover deficiencies in plot and character a flaw. If they are just in addition to good plots and characters, then these are just a bonus.

Not to be confused with GlassesTropes.
