* ''ComicBook/ActionComics #1000'' takes VariantCover up to eleven as there are ''eight'' covers depicting Superman in the style of each decade: Steve Rude (TheThirties), Michael Cho (TheForties), Dave Gibbons (TheFifties), Michael Allred (TheSixties), Creator/JimSteranko (TheSeventies), Joshua Middleton (TheEighties), Dan Jurgens (TheNineties)[[note]]Since Jurgens was the artist during that period, DC basically told him "You do you, Dan."[[/note]] and Lee Bermejo (TheNoughties).

* Elaine May of ''Film/ANewLeaf'' takes CuteClumsyGirl up to eleven as the socially inept Henrietta. She forgets to remove price tags from her clothes; has to be vacuumed after she eats; spills multiple cups of tea in one sitting; and accidentally ''puts her head through the arm hole'' of a Grecian nightgown.

* ''WesternAnimation/TurningRed'' exaggerates FootPopping: In Mei's fantasy of how the 4*Town concert goes, she is proposed to by Robaire and goes not just on one foot but on her tiptoes.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls1998'' episode "The City of Frownsville" exaggerates the OcularGushers trope. It is used for Lou Gubrious, a miserable scientist. Not only is it used normally, but his tears [[CryingARiver fill the island's retreats and cause a myriad of waterfalls]].


* ''Film/DarkCity'' takes IntriguedByHumanity to an extreme degree. The Strangers’ whole purpose in creating the city and performing their nightly experiments is to study humans in order to [[PinocchioSyndrome become like them]] and reverse the [[DyingRace death of their species]].

* Wiki/SCPFoundation: [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2000 SCP-2000]] exaggerates the ResetButton trope with an extremely long narrative, relentless TechnoBabble and a very convoluted process to actually hit the button. Oh, and it's been used several times before. The current iteration of the Foundation broke the damn thing so that it doesn't actually work anymore, though.

* Book 2 of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemMysteryOfTheEmblem'' exaggerates HeroesPreferSwords, as [[AnAxeToGrind axes]] are relegated to being UnusableEnemyEquipment, and cavalry units are forced to dismount in indoor chapters, thereby switching to swords. With Knights being the only melee units that can equip [[BladeOnAStick lances]] in indoor chapters, it's not unlikely to have a large chunk of the player's army equip swords at a given time.

* ''VideoGame/{{RType}}'' Final's Stage F-C takes PointOfNoContinues to the extreme, not only giving the player no chance to continue but removing any and all extra lives. Since the player's ship is a OneHitPointWonder, it's an instant GameOver if they are ''even hit once''.

** Dave Strider has to do this with BreakableWeapons. Due to how [[WeaponOfChoice Abstratii]] work, when one of his swords break in half, ALL of his swords break in half, and he's unable to equip any swords until they get broken as well.

** As does ''Manga/SakuraTrick'', where the main couple makes it their mission to kiss ''every chapter''.

--->'''SONIC:''' You might know everything I'm going to do, but that's not going to help you, since ''I'' know everything ''YOU'RE'' going to do! '''''STRANGE, ISN'T IT!?'''''

Added DiffLines:

** Creator/MercedesLackey does the OurVampiresAreDifferent trope as well in ''Literature/ChildrenOfTheNight'', which has three different varieties of vampire colliding.

Added DiffLines:

Sometimes there are multiple ways to exaggerate a trope. For an example, ExplodingBarrels trope can be exaggerated by either increasing the explosive radius of a barrel, the prevalence of exploding barrels, and/or how easily the barrels explode.


%%* ''Film/BluesBrothers'': the ending. [[spoiler:From the police car chase to Chicago onwards, increasing amounts of men keep pouring in to stop the Blues Brothers, from more and more branches of law enforcement and the armed forces, with ever more material rushing.]]
