* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Why would anyone build a clockwork map of the world? Because it looks really really cool, that's why. The little-cogs-in-a-larger-machine effect satisfies the RuleOfSymbolism as well.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', being a Franchise/{{Superman}} show that ran for ten years, and with one of the producers a fan of UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} madness, sure has its moments.
** The "[[BulletTime Clark time]]" effect. They love it so much they give SuperSpeed to dozens of villains that usually don't have them, because it looks so blasted cool.
** Lana Lang with the [[spoiler:Prometheus armour. It is "armour" that gives not the slightest trace of being worn, and gives kryptonian level speed and strength. Oh, and you need to start some fires... over a water tank... containing the test subject... and there is no energy input... Yes, it makes no sense but it is all forgiven when Lana bursts out of the lab like a phoenix from the flames and does a BulletCatch]].
* Early seasons of ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower really had her pushing the limits]] of BadassNormal. She could fight one-on-one with a PhysicalGod or solo against armies and win. As a specific example: In one scene, she jumps from a cliff and horizontally spins hundreds of feet onto a passing ship. She could do this because she was Just That Cool. Her [[ThemeMusicPowerUp blood-quickening theme music]] sung by the Bulgarian Women's Choir always accompanied such feats. Later seasons had plot-devices and {{Flashback}}s explaining various powers.
* ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' features this due to the creator's desire to include cool-looking SpaceWestern themes whether they [[FridgeLogic really made sense or not]]. From the DVD commentary:
--> "Nice floating train. Floating trains are cool."
--> "And I'll tell you for why, it's because they're floating, and also, trains."
* ''Series/MythBusters''
** TheTeam usually follows up a "busted" myth (and plausible and confirmed myths too) with an over-the-top experiment under improbable circumstances just to see how cool it looks like when it explodes. After all, [[CatchPhrase "we've replicated the circumstances of the myth, now let's replicate the results"]], and [[CatchPhrase "if it's worth doing,]] [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill it's worth overdoing"]].
** While testing to see if small amounts of dynamite can clean the inside of cement trucks of solidified cement, they fill one up with FBI-provided high explosives and blow it up to smithereens. Why would this be considered important information in the busting of this myth? The correct answer is: Who cares?
---> '''Jamie:''' [[LampshadeHanging This has got nothing to do with the myth;]] [[StuffBlowingUp it's just a big boom.]]
** It boggles the mind that they made a cannon entirely out of duct tape. The damned thing ''worked''.



* One of the key selling points of ''Series/{{Merlin|2008}}'' is the authenticity of the wardrobe and the skill of the costume department at making it so. Then Arthur has a trenchcoat. Why? Because it looks cool.
* ''Series/TopGear'': Why race a Bugatti Veyron against an RAF Eurofighter Typhoon? Why attempt to turn a Reliant Robin into a space shuttle? Why do any of the things they do? Because they're cool, dammit!
* Nothing in ''Series/DoctorWho'' makes any sense at all. Not the [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld Nine Hundred And Three Years Old]] [[TheNthDoctor regenerating]] HumanAlien who travels around time and space in a police box, not the {{Technobabble}} he [[MotorMouth delivers at a hundred kilometres an hour]] to justify the latest ReversePolarity, not the [[ContinuitySnarl perpetually vague or contradicting continuity]], ''definitely'' not the TimeyWimeyBall, not the OmnicidalManiac motorised pepper pots armed with a whisk and a toilet plunger, and absolutely not the screwdriver that gets NewPowersAsThePlotDemands. There is also, however, not a single person that cares.

In adapting the Count for their show, the writers let him keep all his most memorable traits (sleeping in Victorian England with her human maid/lesbian lover?

The audience is supposed to accept these scenes because of this trope and RuleOfFunny, and judging by how successful both films are, it worked, or at least was tolerated by most people despite being completely ridiculous scenes.

** ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' has impenetrable force-fields that turn on at the most dramatically convenient times.
** Why does Darth Maul use a polearm lightsaber? Why not?
*** Similarly, Kylo Ren's saber from the sequel trilogy. What's even better than a lightsaber? A lightsaber with two other lightsabers shooting out of the handle perpendicular to the blade, making it look like a medieval longsword. Justified in that the design requires plasma to be vented out due to the damaged crystal within, it offers more hand protection than the traditional saber, and that Ren uses the crossguard to injure his opponents while in a BladeLock.

** ''[[WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars Clone Wars]]'': you once see the same weapon on the Millennium Falcon being carried around by ''[[{{BFG}} a single ARC trooper]]'', and instead of using four arms, Grievous juggles four light-sabers around between his hands and prehensile feet (albeit as an "unwelcome surprise"), making for some of the best fights in ''Franchise/StarWars'' history.

* ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'': The battle between the Stegosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex could never have happened, given that the species were separated by 20 million years at the very least. That's not to mention a few anatomy errors of both. But no one's complaining. Wicked music, great animation, incredible synchronization? Sit back and relax.



* The entire ''WesternAnimation/AlphaAndOmega'', especially the wolf characters. Unlike most people who believe this is a mistake. A majority of the wolves have AnimeHair and a few have eye colors discommon to actual wolves. This also includes wolf society portrayed on this movie.



* ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' and ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'' both contain scenes with characters with no driving experience whatsoever some how managing to successfully drive vehicles on busy roads to their destination by working together despite being a assortment of ''living toys'' in the former, and a ''fish'' and a ''octopus'' in the latter.

* Mythological gods and heroes in general are full of this. That's half the ''point'' of most of them. Hercules, Gilgamesh, the entire cast of ''Literature/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms''... all fuelled by Rule of Cool. Where else are you going to hear that an Eight Headed Snake was defeated by ''Sake'' of all things[[note]]Besides ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', which is based on this sort of thing[[/note]]. In fact, most mythological heroes weren't necessarily heroic in the modern sense. A lot of the time, all it took to be a "hero" was strength and daring, not morality.



* ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' is based on one very simple concept: medieval knights riding dinosaurs into battle. How do you tame a dinosaur? ''Can'' you tame a dinosaur? If you tamed it, could you ride it? Would it even want to charge into battle? It does not matter - what matters are ''medieval knights riding dinosaurs into battle''.

* The Rule of Cool most likely explains why people usually portray phoenixes as birds of prey. Granted, herons and ibises (which phoenixes were historically based on) are effective predators in their environments, but they're just not as cool as hawks or eagles. Heck, showing phoenixes as birds [[IncendiaryExponent made of fire]] when the original myths just said they were regular birds reborn in fire is an example of this trope.
%%* This rule is the ''raison d'etre'' for the most of the {{Steampunk}} genre.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Space 1889}}'', the things requiring most suspension of disbelief are also the coolest; dinosaurs on Venus, Victorians in Space, supertough Martians riding on big scary birds, canals of Mars and flying ships. There are rather detailed and reasonably plausible explanations for these, if you accept slightly different natural laws, though. Perhaps the most blatant example of greater need for suspension of belief for extra cool stuff is two prototype giant steam robots in the adventure Tom Fleet and his Steam Colossus in Challenge 61 - yes, of course they end up having a cool giant robot on giant robot fight, do you even need to ask?

** ''WebAnimation/DeadFantasy''. The characters of ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' and ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' beat the crap out of each other with no regards for little things like the laws of physics.
** Action in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is built on cool. For instance, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt9vl8iAN5Q the White trailer]] involves a girl duelling a GiantMecha with her elementally-powered rapier by jumping off SteppingStonesInTheSky.
* ''WebAnimation/SuperMarioBrosZ'': A ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''[=/=]''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' crossover done with ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' physics.

* ''WebAnimation/KingsOfPowerFourBillionPercent'': There's not much logic behind the animation, but when it looks that cool, does it need any?
* Flash games ''New York Shark'', ''Sydney Shark'' and ''Miami Shark''. It's about sharks eating fishes, humans, boat, baseballs, planes, Spider-Man, etc. and then destroying the Earth with a meteor.

* The creators of ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', the ContinuityReboot to ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', were looking for a way to set their series apart from the rest. So, they made a spin-off movie entitled, ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman... [[WesternAnimation/TheBatmanVsDracula versus]] {{Dracula}}''. '''Batman. Versus. Dracula.''' The bat-imagery crossover lets it make a twisted kind of sense. The movie lives up to the concept. [[spoiler:Yes, Batman finds a cure for vampirism at the end, and all the citizens of Gotham who were vamps go back to normal]]. The Penguin becomes TheRenfield. Oh, and as if it wasn't cool enough already, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is turned into a vampire [[spoiler:for a while]]. VAMPIRE. JOKER.
