Hey, there's no pirates on there anywhere!?note 

"Oh my goodness! They've come back! As ninja pirate robot monkey clown bandito werewolf zombies! How CRraAAaaZZzzyyyyyy!

When cool things are combined, the combination is cooler than the sum of its parts. This combination is usually physically impossible or contradictory, like the title of this page. Fortunately, if done right, nobody cares (Rule of Cool!)

This doesn't always work. If the cool things somehow cancel each other out, if it's just so overwhelming the Willing Suspension of Disbelief snaps like a brittle twig, you may get left with a piece of camp that is at best funny and at worst disgusting… often falling into the realm of Cool, but Stupid. Just remember Strong Bad's words of wisdom: "Too much of a good thing is an awesome thing. But too much of an awesome thing is… umm… really, really dumb and bad."

Two relatively straightforward forms of this alluded to in the trope's name are Boxing Lessons for Superman, in which a character with inherent abilities is trained in a cool skillset (a dragon trained in ninjitsu, for instance), and Empowered Badass Normal, in which a skilled character is imbued with special abilities (a Gadgeteer Genius given an Imagination-Based Superpower)

See also Awesomeness Is Volatile, Cool Versus Awesome, Fantasy Kitchen Sink, Heinz Hybrid, Hybrid-Overkill Avoidance (avoiding this trope), Impossibly Cool Weapon, Mix-and-Match Critter, Monster Mash, Rule of Cool. May also overlap with Twofer Token Minority. See Hailfire Peaks for the level variant.

Ninja Steel Gold

A popular country singer who was imprisoned aboard Galvanax's ship. After escaping, he joins the team as its Sixth Ranger.<br><br>It eventually comes out that Levi is actually Brody's missing older brother Aiden, who was entrusted with the Ninja Steel by their father Dane when Galvanax attacked. Having witnessed his father's vanishing and his brother's abduction, Aiden hid the Ninja Steel, then himself under an alias, hiding out in the open. After the Ninja Nexus Prism found him and he was captured by Madame Odius, she copied his memories of being Aiden into a robot and replaced them with fake memories. Later, in battle with the robot, he damaged it in a way that led to his real memories being returned to him. After he heard Brody singing their father's song, his returned memories were fully restored, and he was able to explain the truth to the other Rangers.

How well does it match the trope?
