Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Flight}}'' game takes throwing a paper airplane and turns it into a launch game with stars, boosting, and fairly awe-inspiring music.


* ''VideoGame/SmackdownVsRaw''. The game will "sell" a created wrestlers finishing the move like it's the most awesome thing ever. Watch as the game goes into slow motion with dramatic "whoosh" sound effect when your created wrestler does his finisher... an eye poke.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/SuperSizedFamily'' is just a generic simulation game about raising kids and doing chores, but it has dramatic background music and you get given an army title upon the game's completion.


* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' has a very heavily-stylised approach to showing people arguing. People's sentences fly across the screen and you refute them by ''literally shooting them down''. [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 The sequel]] even adds debating via verbal swordfighting!

* ''VideoGame/HypnospaceOutlaw'' has [[Music/HotDad Chowder Man]]'s ''Ready to Shave''. [[EpicRocking Nearly seven minutes]] of prog rock. About getting ready to shave. [[FauxSymbolism Possibly as a symbol for]] OrderVersusChaos, but mostly directly about shaving.

Added DiffLines:

** The [[Anime/AceAttorney anime]] attempts to make sense of what is happening when an epic objection knocks someone off their feet: when one of the attorneys makes a particularly damaging statement a [[BlowYouAway massive gust of wind]] follows their words and the other party is forced to endure the blast.

Added DiffLines:

** In his particular case, its because Ocelot is good with his six shooter that he barely needs to reload it during combat. He is excited because Snake is a big enough challenge that he actually needs more than just six bullets.


** Early in the game, Toriel asks you to perform the "difficult" task of... walking to the end of a perfectly straight hallway (which doesn't even have any RandomEncounters to slow you down). The soundtrack for this event is as mock-dramatic as the request.

* ''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G.]]'' makes waitressing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWfJRKzJdMM look cool and exciting]], by having them duke it out in [[SupernaturalMartialArts a MMA]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvTsagnxr0o competition]], for the title of "Virgin Goddess". Then adds [[NotJustATournament nefarious schemes by the group sponsoring the tournament]] and [[GattacaBabies genetically enhanced hybrids]] to the mix. They may as well call it ''[[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters The Queen of Fighters.]]''

* In a Pacifist Run in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', you go over (somewhat hesitantly) to Undyne's house. When Papyrus bails, she realizes his cooking lessons were right then, so, as her [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic overly awesome theme tune]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTy9v9a7Tmo plays]], she shows you how to cook... THE HARDCORE WAY.
