'''Basic Trope''': A mundane action is played to look more epic than normal.
* '''Straight''': Bob is running to get on an elevator, but the doors are closing, so he makes a slow-motion dive for it, complete with a BigNo.
* '''Exaggerated''': Every time Bob takes a step, blinks, or breathes, the scene goes to super slow-motion, SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic plays, and there are several dramatic camera angles.
* '''Downplayed''': Bob is running to get to an elevator, it's clear the trip there was a lot more than just walking to the elevator.
* '''Justified''':
** Bob is an actor practicing for a movie where he has to do a scene like that.
** Bob's life is boring, so why not spice up his everyday life with awesomeness?
** LargeHam
** Bob is running to get on the elevator so he can escape before the building explodes. He is still just trying to get onto an elevator, though.
* '''Inverted''': Bob is fighting off the BigBad, but the scene treats it as mundane as opening a door.
* '''Subverted''': It looks like Bob's about to dive for the elevator, but instead he turns and starts going up the stairs instead.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** ...which he climbs two steps at a time while awesome music plays.
** You mean TwoStepsFromHell [[IncrediblyLamePun at a time?]]
* '''Parodied''': Bob makes a leaping, slow-motion dive for the doors, along with awesome music, a BigNo, and everybody around him gasping in shock at how awesome it is. When Bob gets inside, he does a heroic pose and everybody applauds.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Bob treats some mundane actions dramatically, but does others normally.
* '''Averted''': Bob enters the elevator casually with elevator music.
* '''Enforced''': "We need to make this scene longer, so let's make it seem more awesome than it really is!"
* '''Lampshaded''': "We could've gone without the leap and giant 'NOOOOO!', Bob".
* '''Invoked''': See Justified.
* '''Exploited''': For ObfuscatingInsanity, Bob always invokes a {{Narm}}-filled version of this. So, of course, Emperor Evulz sees nothing unusual on the spycams when Bob actually saves the world.
* '''Defied''': Bob starts to dive, but his friend Alice grabs him and tells him to just use the next elevator, which is currently open.
* '''Discussed''': "Yeah, sometimes I want to mop the floor wearing a BadassLongcoat and playing OminousLatinChanting..".
* '''Conversed''': "This show has mundane moments spiced up with epic. Perhaps the author ran out of ideas?"
* '''Deconstructed''': These kinds of scenes basically reek of {{Narm}}. In-universe, since Bob keeps doing these, he's seen as childish, and is laughed at.
* '''Reconstructed''': ....Which was the intention of the author or Bob.
