My first thought was to have it refer to things viewed in-universe
as Pure Awesome (kind of like Beyond the Impossible
). Particularly when such things are (at least seen by other characters as) ridiculous.
Still, I could see some of the other suggestions like That Human's "character is so awesome that their mere presence causes tangible physical effect". I think it's a little narrow, but it's better than nothing.
I also disagree with those who say it's covered by Awesomeness Is Volatile
. As ...someone else mentioned... that would probably be a subtrope (at least of That Human's suggestion) where the "tangible physical effect" is specifically explosive.
Lastly, while I love having trope names having Trope Namers
, I'll admit that this one can be more than a little misleading. Seconding a name change to The Power Of Awesome
, or some such.
