** [[ParodiedTrope Parodied]] ([[AffectionateParody just like everything else]]) in ''Series/HikoninSentaiAkibaranger'', where in one season 1 episode, the roll call explosion scares the crap out of [[TheWatson Aoyagi]] and [[CosplayOtakuGirl Moegi]]. And in another, they finish their roll call, [[WheresTheKaboom only for no explosion to go off. They turn around]], and THEN the explosion goes off, scaring them yet again.

And that was before the series, by the time he appears he's become so awesome that people ''have trouble remembering him anymore''.

* The Creator/TerryCrews Old Spice commercials tend to include random explosions. Makes sense though, you have a buff black man who uses Old Spice. Can't get much more awesome than that. Of course, they're made by Tim and Eric.
** On one occasion Old Spice Guy claimed that if he and his rival Fabio were ever in the same room their combined pizazz would destroy the universe. They ''did'', but thankfully all that happened was a bit of reality rearrangement, some time travel, things went [[Series/DoctorWho wibbly wobbly]], and after a heartfelt speech from Isaiah got past-Fabio to back down, everything went back to normal. *[[EarWorm Old Spice jingle whistle]]*
* [[InvokedTrope Very heavily used]] in a commercial for Verizon, wherein Michael Bay spent the entire commercial saying how he doesn't just have things, he has ''awesome'' things. And every time he points out an ''awesome'' piece of furniture, appliance, or even [[SerialEscalation his POOL]], it [[StuffBlowingUp erupts in a huge fireball]].
