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."

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.

Everyone's Nightmares

The broken psychic mines summon nightmares such as a giant Borg snake, Klingons wearing (human) clown make-up with bat'leths for arms, and Jennifer as an Andorian werewolf.

How well does it match the trope?
