The limit of the Willing Suspension of Disbelief for a given element is directly proportional to its awesomeness.
Stated another way, all but the most pedantic of viewers will forgive liberties with reality as long as the result is wicked sweet or awesome. This applies to the audience in general; there will naturally be a different threshold for each individual. Also known in some circles as a "rad herring", in which something doesn't make sense within the guidelines of the story's reality, but it's too cool not to include it.
The Rule Of Cool is another principle that seeks to dispel arguments among fans over implausibility in fiction. It has been cited by animation director Steve Loter (of Kim Possible, Clerks: The Animated Series, Tarzan, and American Dragon: Jake Long) in response to questions from fans attempting to justify temporary breaches in logical consistency. It is a complement to Bellisario's Maxim and the MST3K Mantra.
Of scientific laws that this trope circumvents, the third law of motion is probably the most frequently revoked, with the square-cube law probably a close second. The Second Law of Thermodynamics is third and a mention has to go to the laws of relativity, which prevent us from attaining Faster-Than-Light Travel and going to a distant planet in just a few hours.
Note that you only get to invoke the Rule of Cool if the end product is, in fact, cool. Note also that different opinions on what is "cool" create the most arguments over this. The Rule of Cool is very subjective. Failure to properly use this trope can cause collision damage with walls.
Since it's subjective, it doesn't have to be cool in the sense of "Grim reaper on a mountain playing an electric guitar". The protagonist might not use guns because it's cooler to have them fight vampires with knives and stakes. You might have Missing Parent Syndrome because it would be weird to have parents with you on a road trip across the country. Basically, Rule of Cool works differently for whichever genre you're writing for.
There are no instances of this trope being justified, nor can there be — after all, the entire point is that it's about things that don't make sense but we still gladly accept just because they're cool.
You will need to refer to The Utterly and Completely Definitive Guide to Cool.
A Sub-Trope of Artistic License.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess: Epona gets an upgrade from the "X" in a boy and his horse into a bona fide war horse in this game, complete with a few Rearing Horse moments. Everything's Better with Spinning applies to the Spinner and the trusty spin attack. You can do some cool Spider-Man moves with the Double Clawshot, walk on walls because of the electromagnets in the Goron Mines and when fighting bosses there is almost always a moment of Theme Music Power-Up when you've exposed an enemy's vulnerabilities.

Thursday Next. The hero, Next, can visit inside books. The mechanics of this are explained as, 'If it works, it works'. Which leads to the Chesire Cat manifesting a Kraken to defeat what is essentially a toast-based dictatorship.

Megas XLR A badass opening theme song, a giant robot with a car for a head that's piloted with a video game system. Coop can pull off amazing and special moves because he played video games all his life. It can all be summed up by these two lines, from the episode where Coop enters Megas into a car show:

For Bioshock Infinite you get the magic to sic a murder of crows on people. Even so, how does the flying city of Columbia carry enough fuel to stay airborne, or to lift all those stone buildings, marble statues, cobbled streets and parks at all? Through awesomeness.

Samurai Jack has this as a guiding principle when writing the setting. It was all but outright stated in a featurette that Rule of Cool dictated the writing sessions for Tartakovsky and his creative team. They would sit down and ask: What cool thing can we invoke this episode that we saw on TV when we were kids? Why are there robotic Celtic demons, cowboys riding jet-powered horsebots, robotic Viking warriors, boisterous Highlanders with machine-guns for legs, Spartan warriors with rocket spears, immortal monks and magical portals? Because awesome.

Sluggy Freelance uses this mixed with Rule of Funny to make its bizarre and frequently absurd mythology work. As an example, the "Holiday Wars" arc. Bun-bun, a murderous talking rabbit with the stolen powers of Halloween and the Easter Bunny, leads an army of ghouls in battle against a mutated, alien Santa and his own army of black ops elves. Santa and Bun-bun have their final showdown where they fight each other at Super Speed using the same ability that lets them deliver presents/hide eggs all over the world in a single day. Eventually Bun-bun performs a Coup de Grâce on Santa using a Nerf gun. Take a look for yourself.

Bleach.
The beginning of the Arrancar arc has the first 'fighting in mid-air' battles. It has a justification (soul reapers can walk on spirit particles) but it still counts because it's damn cool.
A specific example in soul society of bending the rule that meant they couldn't 'fly' in the first place - the Dynamic Entry into the cells where Rukia is held is assisted by a giant winged device that is ONLY useful in the Seireitei. A giant wing comes from nowhere while Ichigo radiates his badass aura, to the surprise of two captains, before discarding it and landing next to Rukia.

Most of Sonic X: Dark Chaos runs on this with a generous topping of Darker and Edgier and graphic violence out the wazoo. From battlestations the size of stars to six-necked demonic guitars that can blast warships apart to murderous killer androids to Dragon Ball-esque Chaos powers, it's here.

The final battle in Kingdom Hearts II, where Sora and Riku fight Xemnas. They're floating in space and you can slice buildings flying at you in half and send them flying back without moving. This is so impossible the only explanation is that the laws of physics were breaking. Considering what was happening at the end of the game, it's not too far-fetched.

Chuck:
The premise of a computer being downloaded into a guy's mind makes no sense whatsoever, and when that computer is upgraded to make him magically learn kung fu, all plausibility goes flying right out the window but Chuck can kick people in face, so who really cares?
Sarah's knife-throwing exploits fall firmly into this trope.
If Casey is coming to the rescue, why bother with making him take the door when you can have him parachute in through a glass ceiling with a team of Special Ops commandos?
The tricked-out Nerd Herder has hidden passenger-side controls, a remote control, a hidden central console, handcuffs that come out of the steering wheel to detain prisoners, and a driver's seat that can be ejected out the door. Why? Because it does, that's why.
Within canon, when Morgan can't think of a way to pick the Buy More's new assistant manager, he finally decides to go with a bouncy harness cage match. Not that anything involving Jeff and Lester can be terribly cool, but it's the principle of the thing.

In the season four premiere of Star Trek: Enterprise, the Enterprise's targeting sensors are disabled, requiring the ship to get close enough to the target to eyeball it. This serves no plot purpose but the target happened to be a facility in Nazi-occupied New York. The result was the Enterprise flying over New York City, fighting Stukas with plasma cannons.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:
Following the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Coulson has taken steps to avert S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Sigil Spam, removing the emblem from the cars and many other obvious places. He couldn't bring himself to remove the giant symbol on the top of the plane, though, because it's just too cool.
Coulson has Fitz make him a device that projects an energy shield for the sole reason that they both agreed it would be cool for the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. to have a shield. For bonus points, it's in the shape of Captain America's shield, though with the S.H.I.E.L.D. symbol rather than his star.

MythBusters
The Team 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, "we've replicated the circumstances of the myth, now let's replicate the results", and "if it's worth doing, 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?
It boggles the mind that they made a cannon entirely out of duct tape. The damned thing worked.

The Matrix: The premise involves robots imprisoning humans into a computer generated Platonic Cave. However, most of the series involves rebellious philosophers in Badass Longcoats fighting artificially-intelligent Agent programs in corporate attire, all through Martial Arts. In Slow Motion. It also helps that the Wachowski sisters' inspiration for creating the trilogy was Anime.
The famous lobby scene. There was no reason for them to be there except for a cool shootout.
Neo draws his sunglasses before he starts to fight Smith. THAT is the Rule Of Cool in action.
This trope is the sole reason the "Burly Brawl" scene in Reloaded exists. It's ten minutes of Neo fighting endless clones of Smith for no real plot-enhancing reason. It just looks cool.
When Neo kicks Agent Smith and then instead of taking his foot down, he moves it in air and then put it down. Totally Frigging Cool.
The Agents (and later Neo's) ability to dodge bullets is never replicated to dodging much slower punches and kicks. This is due to Rule Of Cool, because if they did the fights would last all of five seconds.

As for the boss fights, one of them has the main character riding on the back of a giant cat and fighting an anthropomorphic sentai wolf on a transforming motorcycle. The cat can also do the aforementioned missile surf while the main character grabs giant lasers out of the air and throws them back at the wolf.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: There is a in-universe reason for all the strange awesomeness but why would you care with so hammy hot blood and Humongous Mecha?
Everything the characters or mechs do, and even the laws of physics themselves, are subject to Rule Of Cool. The fight scenes especially make absolutely no logical sense whatsoever, but it really doesn't matter because they're so awesome.
Throwing galaxies like ninja stars.
Kamina, resident badass draws his trusty katana, and it keeps coming out of the sheath for ten feet, for no reason other than it looks cool while battling someone wielding a meat cleaver. The length of Kamina's sword seems directly proportional to the length of the speech he is making while drawing it.
The end of the anime is also a deconstruction of the Rule of Cool via the Spiral Nemesis, the theoretical end of the universe via an overuse of Spiral Power (which is functionally the Rule of Cool in Applied Phlebotinum form.) Simply put, being able to bend the laws of physics, probability and reality itself just because it'd be awesome would eventually cause reality itself to come undone. By the end of the anime, Simon resolves to prevent the Spiral Nemesis, starting with abandoning Spiral Power altogether (not even using it to resurrect Nia after her death even though he probably could) to Walk The Earth as his allies go on to use it more responsibly.
In the same vein, DOUBLE K, the buddy cop version of the anime, combines how Rule Of Cool driven both types of shows are.

On Shadow's intro on Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Shadow is shown running through snow while avoiding many robots shooting him. He then runs through the robots. The robots blow up, and then he bounces on a single robot to get past a big door. That's a full use of this rule. However, the Chaos Control he proceeds to use is unjustified because it doesn't look as cool as it should... especially after what he just did.

Guilty Gear is the single coolest fighting game ever. The playable cast includes a Pirate Girl wielding an anchor as big as she is, a blind assassin who kills people with the demonic entity living in his shadow, a drug dealer turned ninja turned politician, a trash-talking half-dragon bounty hunter who likes Queen, and a British time-traveller ala Doctor Who plus a kusarigama and fire magic. That last guy is possibly the most normal character in this game.
Saying that, it's Spiritual Successor Blazblue comes close. It has a man with a massive sword and a replacement arm that allows him to go Super Saiyen, a girl who can pull gatling guns out of thin air who is also a robot that can rewrite the universe, a smooth talking intelligence agent with an infinite chain who screwed up the entire world and is actually God, a squirrel girl who can punch you into outer space, a suit of armour possessed by one of the character from another timeline, and a cat person with duel katanas.

MadWorld deals with a guy mauling his opponent with a giant chainsaw attached to his arm in the most over-the-top and goriest manners possible. Just that is enough already.

Action in RWBY is built on cool. For instance, the White trailer involves a girl duelling a Giant Mecha with her elementally-powered rapier by jumping off Stepping Stones in the Sky.

Fist of the North Star, if examined with a critical eye, would collapse under the weight of its Fridge Logic... if not for how it essentially created the Rule Of Cool-based Shōnen series. It's hard to complain about the implausibility of the premise when you're trying to retrieve your jaw following the fight scenes.

Another song is about "superstars sucked into the supermassive", with huge riffs and piano's that would make an appropriate soundtrack to Dante's Inferno.

Jurassic World:
The creation of the Indominus Rex is a deconstruction of this trope. They wanted a bigger, badder, tougher, and smarter dinosaur than T. Rex or Velociraptor...but what they got was a psychotic hybrid hell-bent on destruction, and It Can Think as well!
The finale is over the top, and their solution could have easily put them into additional danger (and it's never really explained why it didn't), but at least it was awesome to watch.

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 Romance of the Three Kingdoms... all fuelled by Rule of Cool. Where else are you going to hear that an Eight-Headed Snake was defeated by Sake of all thingsnote Besides Ōkami, which is based on this sort of thing. 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.

The Dresden Files is, by the admission of its author, constructed out of this. When the main character magically blasts werewolves through walls, fights vampires alongside mob bosses, running into the middle of a faerie apocalypse, reanimating a ZOMBIE T-REX and PUNCHING OUT SANTA CLAUS (who is also Odin) you KNOW it's this trope.

In the nondescript space future of Manly Guys Doing Manly Things wars are literally FOUGHT on the Rule of Cool: the point of it is to get the public to think you have the coolest army. Case in point: Commander Badass wants to punch his superior officer. Any other army: that'd get him immediately punished, probably demoted, and lucky not to get kicked out. In an army running on this trope: they decide it could be 'mad bitching' and set ground rules to give the Commander one free no-strings-attached sucker punch on the Admiral (preferably in public). However, the concept is also deconstructed and averted: sometimes Rule of Cool isn't the best option: red jackets may look cool, but make the wearer a big target. And the military has no problem emotionally manipulating their soldiers to make them be 'more like Batman', which is what actually led to the case in point. (And by the way, no, the Commander hasn't punched the Admiral yet. It's not about punching him, it's about him knowing he's getting punched.)
On a smaller scale, Angel's survival derby is decided by who has the raddest team/base. They technically didn't say who won the most recent one, but considering the Commander made a Dynamic Entry on a Megalodon wearing a sweater (the megalodon, not the Commander), it's reasonable to guess his team did.

Cowboy Bebop can be very confusing if taken on surface value, with only five episodes needed to tell the full narrative. Despite this fact, the entire twenty-six episodes remains a standard of great anime for it's smoothness, filmic style, well choreographed action sequences. This is only one element that enabled the show to succeed.

The Power Rangers franchise got its success by being practically fueled by this trope, the premise alone involving a small group of teens doing martial arts and making awesome if slightly goofy team poses while wearing motorcycle helmets and fighting giant monsters by piloting transforming giant robots might seem very silly, but if you tell it to any Power Ranger fan, you'll likely get the response "Who cares? it's freaking awesome!"

Neon Genesis Evangelion:
Erecting a sprawling civilian metropolis directly atop a military base that is certain to be attacked by aliens wielding doomsday weapons is just Saddamesque enough to be cool.
Skyskrapers slide down underground to hang from the roof of the Geofront whenever one of the aforementioned aliens turn up. This ends poorly but seeing them rise back above ground after a fight with that music is a CMOA.
The entire reason Hideki Anno decided to go with the name isn't because of religious symbolism, but because he thought the words sounded cool.

Discworld:
This is the nature of witchcraft. A witch is simply someone Genre Savvy enough to take advantage of this rule.
There exists an order of monks known as the Monks of Cool, who seek ultimate coolness instead of zen enlightenment. An acolyte has achieved this when his master takes him into a room full of all types of clothing and asks, "Yo, my son, which of these is the most stylish thing to wear?" and he responds, "Hey, whatever I select." Cool, but not necessarily up-to-date.

Spirit of the Century, besides having PCs able to pull off basically anything they've ever seen in a movie, fight gorillas on top of a zeppelin, ride dinosaurs, etc., asks the GM to stop and think, before declaring any rule, "What happens if the PCs succeed, and what happens if they fail?" and is expected to come up with a sufficiently interesting answer for both, just to guarantee every roll will have cool enough results either way to be worthwhile. The game also encourages things like taking gangsters and making them zombie gangsters, or making their leader a talking gorilla, etc.

It's utterly saturated with Steam Punk Humongous Mecha, Airborne Aircraft Carriers, and Military Mashup Machines, and your enemies do things like deliberately blowing a hole in the side of their own spaceship to try and kill you or following you down through re-entry into the planet's atmosphere.

In The Spongebob Squarepants Movie, the climax consists of SpongeBob, seemingly doomed because of Plankton's Evil Plan, singing about the Goofy Goober using a visor and microphone from nowhere to distract Plankton, and when Plankton finally instructs his minions to attack SpongeBob, the microphone and visor are gone just as easily as they appeared and SpongeBob now has a wizard costume with a peanut pattern as well as a Goofy Goober guitar which he uses to play a solo which involves lasers fired from the guitar destroying Plankton's mind-controlling helmets. Despite the blatant, out-of-nowhere Deus ex Machina, this sequence is too cool to question.

The Adventures of Dr. McNinja
The inclusion of raptor-riding banditos alone proves the point here, but if that doesn't convince you, there's also Dracula, who happens to have a moon base with a moon laser. He hangs out with Paul McCartney, the real Michael Jackson, and Tupac.
See also this strip and the one directly following it. No other webcomic features a ninja MD flying a private jet into a thunderstorm where he will be attacked by missile volleys and pterodactyls birdosauruses, which he will subsequently defeat in a single minute so that he may continue on to the apocalyptic Aztec tennis temple to save the world's greatest tennis champion who must play a game of tennis against the avatar of the Aztec god of destruction in order to save the world from imminent doom. The only reason any of the above makes any sense, at all, is because it is so goddamn cool.
King Radical comes from Radical Land, which is even more like this; everything there is based on the Rule Of Cool. Not just almost every plot point like in the normal setting of the comic, but everything else too. Even the Sun wears sunglasses. Given the general nature of the comic, it makes perfect sense when he reveals (in "A Cumberland Ninja in King Radical's Court") that the world of the comic is halfway between Radical Land and a boring universe like ours, influenced by the energies of both, which is why it looks like the world we know with the addition of the occasional ninja doctor or vengeful astronaut ghost or an ogre running a supermarket.

Early seasons of Xena: Warrior Princess really had her pushing the limits of Badass Normal. She could fight one-on-one with a Physical God 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 blood-quickening theme music sung by the Bulgarian Women's Choir always accompanied such feats. Later seasons had plot-devices and Flashbacks explaining various powers.

Samurai Champloo has little to no narrative and is often too weird or silly to be taken seriously. Fans like the show for it's devil may care attitude and breakdancing samurai battles.

The Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "The Mandalore Plot" featured a villain with a lightsaber and not just any lightsaber but one with a black blade shaped like a katana. Word of God said that this was a case of Executive Meddling on Lucas's part, who didn't allow the kortosis vibrosword to be used against a lightsaber..... which was planned to be used for this trope's sake in the first place.

Mazinger Z: Thus, we've got a Made of Indestructium eighteen-meter-tall humanoid war machine and Eldritch Abomination created by a Mad Scientist, piloted from within, powered with Applied Phlebotinum, equipped with Rocket Punches that can be thrown at the enemy, optical weaponry, corrosive gusts of wind and heat blasts capable of melting within seconds a monster made of metal, that can fly, swim and withstand a nuclear blast. It is also capable of being dunked in magma for a short while, and constantly fights robotic gladiators able to shoot lightning bolts and make 3-D mirages in thin air without a screen, flying medieval knights, whales loaded with nukes, three-headed dragons, giant crabs that set off earthquakes, Transforming Mecha that turn into giant landmines, Ninjas, archers, snipers and humanoids that can fly at Mach 6 speed. And that is without getting into some of the first Action Girls in anime, the Home Base equipped with a Beehive Barrier, the zombie cyborg Mooks, the ancient civilizations that built superweapons, one of the Co-Dragons that is a half-tiger cyborg, or the Super Villain Lair that in reality is a humongous Humongous Mecha disguised like an Island Base.

Chie's ultimate Persona in Persona 4 looks like a samurai Darth Vader with Darth Maul's lightsaber. The game also gives you Kintoki-Douji. It carries a Tomahawk MISSILE. Alas, it is a magic-oriented Persona, so it doesn't throw it.

The first level of Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic escapes wrongful capture from a G.U.N. (Military organisation similar to NATO) Helicopter, and surfs down the hilly city streets on a chunk of the wing. Then at the end of the level, G.U.N. chases him with a truck-truck-truck, a 4 story tall semi so wide it barley scraped along the sides of the buildings and sends everything in the street flying on impact.

Haiyore! Nyarko-san: Happens In-Universe with the title character, who can shapeshift instantly with just a thought, but deliberately gave herself a full-fledged Transformation Sequence into her combat form entirely because she's a massive Otaku who thinks that sort of stuff looks awesome. This is also the reason her combat form resembles a combination of the Knight Blazer and a Kamen Rider, rather than anything more Lovecraftian.

What else can you say about a series where a cyborg combines with an alien robot lion, a bullet train, a drill car, and a stealth fighter to form a Humonguous Robot that uses a space-warping screwdriver and a Hyperspace Mallet capable of turning whatever it strikes into light particles? And of course, the series features a rather famous Memetic Mutation to explain it all: "With courage, 1% becomes 100%!"
The Hyper Space Mallet came with several by virtue of being a transforming tank. Then it becomes a transforming triad of spaceships.

Saints Row: The Third. Bail out of a plane amidst lampshaded implausible quantities of stuff which also fell out. Kill enemies in free-fall. Catch a girl and deploy a parachute. See the plane coming back to ram you, drop the girl, shoot out the plane's windscreen, fly through it shooting everything in sight, fall out the back, more midair combat, catch Shaundi again...

SWAT Kats: How did they build a serviceable jet fighter from parts in a salvage yard? One better than the official military's jets? After building a secret hangar? Many of their Special Missiles violate logic and physics. Their jet crash into the water with stalled engines and they get the engines restarted underwater and fly away. Who cares? It's RADICAL and plays to an awesome electric guitar soundtrack.

This is the central rule of the Exalted. Not only do many, many things in the setting exist solely because they're cool, but it's an actual rule — although it doesn't use that name, it's a mechanical manifestation of it in spirit — where giving a cool description to accompany an action grants a Stunt bonus to perform it. The more awesome it sounds, the bigger the bonus.

Dinosaur King. The plot involves cards that become dinosaurs (or dinosaurs that are cards) and an evil gang who wants to use them for world domination. Makes no sense?

Mad Max: Fury Road: Special mention has to go to the Coma-Doof Warrior. An insane, blind guitarist, wearing his dead mother's face for a mask, rocking out in front of a massive wall of speakers, careening through the desert at high speeds, with a team of drummers bringing up the rear, and the guitar shoots fire. Not only is it awesome, it's also practical; Immortan Joe uses the music for morale and to relay commands to the rest his convoy, like a next-level drummer boy.

300. If you're bothered by the fact that Xerxes' army did not, in fact, include cave trolls, ninjas and rhinos, and that Spartans wore armor and had backup, you should recite the MST3K Mantra. Even in-universe there's an explanation. The story of the 300 is being told by a lone survivor, leading an army of Greeks about to fight the Persians, so of course it runs on Rule Of Cool

Pacific Rim:
Why Guillermo del Toro helped to make this movie. It's giant mecha vs giant monsters. Therefore, it's cool.
The only reason why the tanker didn't buckle under its own weight when used as a melee weapon against a Kaiju or why the Jaeger and the Kaiju don't buckle either.
Gypsy Danger's pilots don't use their sword until halfway through the movie. If they had pulled it out right away, they couldn't have used the very cool tanker, and they couldn't have used the sword in midair!
Are those flaming chainsaw blade weapons of the Big Bad Jaeger in Pacific Rim: Uprising impractical? You bet they are, but they're wonderful to look at.

Fallout 3
This trope and intentional Zeerust are the only things that can explain the giant scorpions, the radiation hanging around after 200 years and keeping things a wasteland, and the fact that that many buildings are still there after being nuked then left to rot for over 200 years, cars that explode in mushroom clouds and most of all... Liberty Prime. A giant, bipedal robot with Gort's laser eyes and a backpack of miniature nuclear missiles, which it throws like footballs and is voiced by Peter 'Optimus Prime' Cullen.
Is it possible to blow someone's head apart by launching a teddy bear at them? Probably not. When you get the Rock-it Launcher and manage to do just that, will you care about the previous question? No.

The trope is lampshaded by the developers in the remake Tomb Raider: Anniversary when they discuss the Uzi wielding teenager. In the original game, the kid was fought in what appeared to be an underground skateboard park and he fought Lara by shooting at her while he was skateboarding (the area had a ton of pits with lava in them in case you weren't in enough danger) and giving the line "You firing at me? You firing at me? There's no one else here so you must be firing at me!" The developers admitted that looking back on the level design for the boss fight now, it looked pretty damn silly, but at the same time, it was too cool.

Elite Beat Agents. The game's plot revolves around an organization of The Men in Black and Cool Shades who appear to help people out with their problems while dancing to pop songs. Helping a white blood cell fight off a virus just in time for the Olympics to Ashlee Simpson's La La? No problem. Assisting a coffee-addicted taxi driver in driving a pregnant woman to the hospital to the song Sk8er Boi? That's nothing for the EBA. Helping a diver find treasure while YMCA is blaring in the background? That's not even trying! How do you save a down-on-his-luck baseball player? By helping him win his next game? No! Clearly, the solution is to help him save a small boy from a giant lava-spewing rock monster in an amusement park! With baseball!

Smallville, being a Superman show that ran for ten years, and with one of the producers a fan of the Silver Age madness, sure has its moments.
The "Clark time" effect. They love it so much they give Super Speed to dozens of villains that usually don't have them, because it looks so blasted cool.
Lana Lang with the 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 Bullet Catch.

Sokka has a space sword. A sword made from meterorite. Suddenly being the Team Normal became a much cooler position.
The giant drill — that could have been done so many other less cool ways.

Lampshaded in Brave Police J-Decker. Three of the main robots eventually combine to form a bigger robot called Build Tiger — which, appropriately enough, has a large tiger face in its chest. When asked why, the designer states: "Because it looks cool!"

Borderlands and Borderlands 2: Sure, having a shotgun that shoots missiles or a machine gun that can electrocute people doesn't make much sense, but damn if it isn't awesome. The DLC goes even further with it; Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep has a gun that shoots swords. Which then explode into more swords.

The end of Four Rooms, has the most understated rule of cool bet ever. For a $1000 tip, the bellboy wields the ax in a car-or-pinky-finger bet about whether or not one of the guys can start his lucky Zippo lighter 10 times. Chop, snatch and strut out the door.

In one of the books of the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine relaunch novels, an interstellar portal (which, mind you, could have led to anywhere in the galaxy) just happens to lead to a Malon garbage scow that had been taken over by a Hirogen hunter. Why? So that Taran'atar, their local Jem'Hadar character, could fight with him, of course!

[PROTOTYPE]: You can punch your enemies to death, but why do that when you can achieve the same result by shoryukening them, punching them thrice in midair, then slamming them into the ground like a rail spike? Then you can use his corpse to down a military helicopter, grab the now-plummeting helicopter in mid-air and chuck it down at a tank and finish off with a ground-pound, taking out any infantry stragglers.

The opening sequence of the first game counts. Yes, it's a tutorial level, but does it really matter when Sora is navigating a black void, walking on stained-glass floors of Disney characters, and it all culminates in a battle against a giant Heartless with a hole in its chest in the shape of a heart symbol?

Tomb Raider: Where else can you play as a daring female archaeologist that is packing heat as she fends off enemies from wolves, to henchmen, and even a freaking Tyrannosaurs Rex while performing acrobatics to either evade enemy attacks or to get from one place to another. Things get even crazier once Lara Croft gets on a vehicle and can run enemies over or make insane jumps over a chasm. Even the traps are taken to the extreme, such as poison darts, rolling boulders, spikes, fire traps, and many more as the series progressed, yet they still remained awesome.

Dante's Inferno. You start off by killing the grim reaper, stealing his scythe, descending into hell and eventually killing the lord of hell himself.

Despite eschewing Space Opera tropes, it's hard to deny that the film is built around the idea of three-meter-tall blue quasi-Algonquian catpeople fighting mecha from space, and it plays fast and loose with the laws of physics and probability to make that happen.
Anyone with even the tiniest bit of knowledge in basic botany or zoology would know that Pandora's flora and fauna primarily evolved to look visually impressive to moviegoers. How would a giant species with impenetrable armor plating and no apparent predators not quickly overpopulate? Why the extra legs and bio-luminescence when they serve no function and could even be a liability? Cuz' they look cool, now less thinky, more watchy!
It's also the only justification for some of the tactics depicted. Even if the hero knows nothing of his own world's history, common sense should tell him that having lightly armed cavalry charge armour and machine guns is suicide but it's such cool, heroic suicide that he does it anyway.

Fleuret Blanc has an in-universe example. The bouts run on this; even if you're the first to tap out, you can still win if you have enough style points. As such, many of the techniques are very flashy and impressive while being impractical in terms of actual combat — such as allowing your opponent to hit you so you have time to play a song for the judges.

Tried, but failed, in the Mister T animated series. note  (If it managed to fail at the Rule Of Cool despite having Mr. T as the main character, you know it failed big-time). While a few moments (most notably spinning an alligator over his head) managed it, the punctuating thuds of anvils landing got in the way.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra features a Powered Armor Car Chase through Paris, an underwater dog fight, and Snake Eyes. In the "making of" commentary on the DVD, one crew member attributes the mantra (loosely paraphrased) "overdo everything; then make it even bigger" to director Stephen Sommers, and says that they were reminded of this policy daily during the production of the film.

In Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, the fight sequences (long enough that you can consider the other scenes "non-fight sequences") consist entirely of "cool", and little to no realism. Just a few examples:
During one of the motorcycle fights, Loz leans over, digs his piston-powered gauntlet into the pavement, then swings around on it, with his bike clamped between his legs, to throw the whole bike at the hero with beyond-lethal velocity.
The hero is thrown several hundred feet into the air by his friends (one of which is a GHOST) in order to slice a dragon god in half with his sword.
Part of the final fight has the hero and the Big Bad swordfighting while jumping and balancing on slabs of a falling building, to a soundtrack of hammering electric guitar with a chanting Latin chorus.
Nomura has gone on record by saying he told The Team to ignore the laws of physics and just do what looked coolest.
Advent Children is what happens if you take a Final Fantasy game and make every attack a Limit Break. Alternatively, it's an answer to the question, "Just what would it really look like to have level 99 characters who can kill just about anything?" In a game, much of that is covered by numbers increasing, but the movie shows that kind of personal power in practice.

This seems to be one of Willy Wonka's guiding principles in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory — why make ordinary Impossibly Delicious Food when you can make awesome sweets such as sugar eggs that dissolve in your mouth and leave a little pink sugar baby bird on your tongue? It's not enough that he has a subterranean river of melted chocolate running through his factory — he also loves to travel down it via a boiled-sweet boat that looks like a Viking longship. Many of the inventions mentioned only in passing are absolutely ridiculous-sounding, but also sound like great fun: fizzy lemonade swimming pools, marshmallow pillows, toffee apple trees that can be planted in backyards! Also, the Great Glass Elevator he uses to zip through the factory? It turns out to be equipped for space travel in the sequel.

The jungle swordfight between Mutt and the bad girl. Realistic? Not in the least. Supremely friggin' awesome? Hell yes.
The fridgenuking! What if that was the writers saying "Dr. Jones is badass enough that you can't kill him with nukes, or whatever is immediately surrounding him"?
The scene in the original Raiders of the Lost Ark, where Indy shoots the giant, black-draped swordsman in the Cairo marketplace, was originally to have been a complex whip-and-sword duel. It was cut due to a general ailment among the cast and crew that day.

The Tezuka Zone, wherein Tezuka Kunimitsu doesn't move one step from wherever he is standing, and all balls, no matter how they are hit, are attracted to him.
Atobe Keigo's World of Ice, which attacks his opponent's weak spot... and takes the form of flying shards of ice. Yes, this is still about tennis.
Synchro is the ultimate doubles technique, during which doubles partners enter a trance-like state and are perfectly in tune with each other... and their eyes become swirling vortexes of color.

The Back to the Future films rely heavily on this as well as the Rule of Funny.
One example, pointed out by Bob Gale on a DVD Commentary, occurs in the third film. Doc and Marty try to get the DeLorean up to eighty-eight miles per hour by pulling it with horses. Gale pointed out that the Doc would know horses don't run that fast and the Doc even points that out in the scene. However, the filmmakers had to do that shot with the DeLorean being ridden across Monument Valley like a covered wagon because it would look cool.
The fact that the time machine itself is a DeLorean is Rule Of Cool in itself. What self-respecting geek hasn't fantasized about having a time-traveling DeLorean? This is specifically invoked as one of the reasons Doc chose the DeLorean. He starts to give a practical reason, but is interrupted and doesn't revisit it.

ReBoot:
Enzo's birthday party. During the festivities, Megabyte crashes the party, and brings out... a guitar? With a dial turned to 11? Megabyte begins jamming. Then Bob steps up to face him, seemingly angry at him for crashing the party. Then he commands his keytool to turn into a guitar and thus begins a rocking guitar duel, between the Hero and the Big Bad! The whole thing ends with Megabyte giving Enzo his guitar, "I've always wanted to do that" and then leaving. Sure, it could've been a trap, or just about anything, but those thoughts never crossed ANYONE'S mind because it was just that freaking AWESOME.
Near the end of the third season of with the system crashing, "User" characters from every game seen prior to the episode suddenly begin appearing in Mainframe. This is explained by the instability of the system releasing "undeleted RAM" — but it seems more like a thinly-veiled excuse for a battle royale between the cast and every User at once. Nobody complained.

EBA's predecessor, Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, ran on this trope too - Japanese-style male cheerleading is used to encourage a buddy cop pair to fight back against an invading army of battery-like aliens. An overworked salaryman to protects his city and his daughter in Ultraman fashion and the entire planet to blast an oncoming meteor with concentrated willpower
In the sequel, Earth's population is called upon again, this time to turn the sun back on through The Power of Rock.

Mahou Sensei Negima!
Jack Rakan based his entire fighting style on this. His moves include summoning a building-sized sword, surfing on a sword, and shattering a magical pocket dimension just by being awesome. It's repeatedly lampshaded by other characters.
The Negi vs. Rakan fight. The ridiculous lengths that it goes to (Negi reveals that he is not left handed five times in a single chapter) would just be overkill if it weren't so freaking awesome.

The scene in the original Raiders of the Lost Ark, where Indy shoots the giant, black-draped swordsman in the Cairo marketplace, was originally to have been a complex whip-and-sword duel. It was cut due to a general ailment among the cast and crew that day.

ALL of Ratchet's guns are powered by this except the most basic ones (sometimes not even them). Let's consider a few:
The RYNO: a Macross Missile Massacre gun so large Ratchet can barely lift it. The later versions get even more excessive.
The Morph-O-Ray and related weapons: stated in the fourth game, Gladiator Deadlocked, to be based on "Heisenberg uncertainty particles". In Up Your Arsenal, it can turn your opponents into phoenix ducks from hell. With an infinite ammo supply.
The Glove of Doom and related weapons: At first, it simply summons kamikaze walking robots. Then, things go insane, with a "gold" version that throws robots the same size as Ratchet (with an ammo capacity of 40 robots, released in groups of four), and the higher levels of the Agents of Doom, which produce flying drones with rocket launchers...
Even the basic rapid-fire weapon in Up Your Arsenal develops Rule Of Cool powers after a while - not only does each shot ricochet an ungodly number of times, they also discharge red lightning when they hit.
RYNOCIRATOR. Disintegration grenade, for all intents and purposes and the most expensive weapon to get your hands on and keep ammo for... But hey, who cares when you can disintegrate 99% of everything in one shot?

Wanted as well as the director's previous films, Night Watch and Day Watch, where things exist for no other reason than because they're cool. Example: Let's drive a car across a building. Why?

Toy Story 2 and Finding Dory both contain scenes with characters with no driving experience whatsoever somehow 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. The audience is supposed to accept these scenes because of this trope and Rule of Funny, and judging by how successful both films are, it worked, or at least was tolerated by most people despite being completely ridiculous scenes.

The Fast and the Furious series features this trope in abundance, but it really reaches its apex in the climax to Fast Five. The heroes steal a 10-ton vault by attaching it via steel cables to two souped up Dodge Chargers, then use the cars to tear the vault from the building. They then proceed to drag the vault all over the city in a huge car chase, with the vault careening all over the place and causing massive destruction while still going fast enough to outrun police cars. Anyone with the most basic knowledge of physics knows that this is impossible, but it's so cool that few people complain about it.

Lelouch constantly uses Rule Of Cool to his advantage. He lampshades it saying that people don't give a damn about reason, but they can't resist miracles. However, this is more a case of Willing Suspension of Disbelief among characters than among the audience.

The Chrono Cross fanfic Heaven-Smiting Masked Magician is about Black Mage Guile going to outer space without supporting equipments to destroy an incoming meteor that lies beyond the Moon. He gets past the Earth's atmosphere without getting fried up by flying as fast as a rocket (with of course, a massive speed boost by blasting the ground with a Kamehame Hadoken). He then reaches the meteor by using the thrust resulted from blasting the surface of the moon with a Kamehame Hadoken (similar to how he gets past the atmosphere safely). He finally returns to Earth by using the recoil from the energy blast he fires at the meteor, destroying the meteor as well.

Final Fantasy
Dissidia: Final Fantasy: heroes and villains of the first ten Final Fantasy games all beat the crap out of each other.
Sabin of Final Fantasy VI's ability to Suplex the Train was actually due to a coding error, where the "Too large to Suplex" tag wasn't turned on. Why do you think this "bug" has been left alone in every subsequent release?
Final Fantasy VIII has one case where a giant interstellar entity hurtles your enemies into a galaxy going supernova. Bahamut's got a long history of destroying things from orbit.
Crisis Core, Bahumut's signature move, Exaflare, involves the giant dragon surrounding the MOON with crystals, blowing half of it up, and turning it into a GIANT LASER which is pointed towards the planet, thus taking out a good amount of HP.

Rambo: The Force of Freedom: Demonstrates the caveat listed in the description: You can only use the rule of cool when the result is, in fact, cool. Highlights of this show include Rambo wrestling a panther under water, driving a motorcycle on top of a train, and jumping out of a burning aircraft with a rocket launcher and somehow managing to turn around and blow up several missiles headed straight for his ally's helicopter with it. It's just cringe-worthy how ridiculous it all is, the flawed animation and complete insanity of the idea of basing a cartoon for children on an ultra-violent action hero making it impossible to take seriously.

Ultima I. Just Ultima I. After spending much of the game fighting in a standard RPG setting you must upgrade your weapon to a Phazor, buy a space shuttle and fight TIE Fighters to become a Space Ace so a princess will give you the location of a time machine that you can use to stop the Big Bad before he reaches One-Winged Angel form.

In the commentary for Serenity, Joss Whedon discusses the scene where the good guys come through the opaque and sensor-killing "ion cloud" followed by an army of Reavers to back them up against the Alliance. Because my cloud kept the Alliance from seeing them coming, it was a perfect cavalry-coming-over-the-hill moment: 'I don't know what an "ion cloud" is, we just made that up but I would have sold all my knowledge of science to get that scene.'

In Metroid Prime 2 there's Luminoth Script. It's a three-dimensional array of lit and unlit nodes, linked by lines, with the shape and which nodes are lit or unlit conveying the message. This array is impossible to read or write in two dimensions, needlessly complicated, and likely can't convey the amount of information it's shown to... but it looks awesome.

Bioshock. No, they didn't have automated turrets or flying unmanned machinegun robots in the 60s, and the technology to build an entire city on the bottom of the ocean wasn't even feasible in the late 1940s but that's terribly irrelevant when one considers that you also have a Magical Hand That Shoots Bees and can set people on fire by snapping your fingers.

Transformers: There is no other reason for these films to exist or for anyone to watch them except that Giant Transforming Robots are inherently cool. It could be argued that Michael Bay's career rests on taking a premise and making it cool.

TRON. This movie has become a cult movie, heavily enjoyed by geeks and people into computers, even though it's obvious to any such person, or for that matter, anyone above the age of seven, that computer programs are not glowing people running around inside a computer. It's just so much fun that this doesn't matter.

This is why Grenade Launcher exists in Left 4 Dead 2. As Valve said, they and many people wanted to see more stuff blow up, so they threw in the weapon. Combine the weapon with fire bullets and you got a gun of awesome.

Parodied in Invader Zim, where the Virtual Ghost of a Martian justifies their embarking on a pointless project that drove their race into extinction with "Because it's cool." He proved himself right, too. They turned their entire planet into one giant moveable spaceship. That's pretty dang cool!

Ninja Gaiden indulged in this from time to time, but Ninja Gaiden II for 360 revels in it. There are zombies with chainsaws and cannons for arms, six-limbed werewolves with giant scythes, flying battleships, ninja special ops forces with rocket launchers, and a boss fight on the Statue of Liberty. Then Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 makes you fight the goddamn Statue of Liberty itself.

The anime adaptation of Fate/stay night has this to thank for at least one difference from the original visual novel. In the game's Fate storyline (which the anime is primarily based on), one of the main villains of the series, Gilgamesh, approaches Saber and Shiro. After severely wounding Shiro, Saber launches a series of attacks at Gilgamesh, which he shrugs off with his armor, thereby averting Armor Is Useless. In the anime, this is replaced by Gilgamesh summoning swords from his Noble Phantasm, the Gate of Babylon, so that they block the path of Saber's swings, a method much more visually appealing than just having him stand there and take it.

Crank: Near the end of the first film after Chase is disarmed, he makes a gun out of his finger and thumb, points it at a guy, goes "Bang" and it kills him.

Prince of Persia went from possible though infeasible acrobatics in Jordan Mechner's original games, to Ubisoft's disregard for the laws of physics relative to human motion. Could a man jumping twelve feet out into space at a sheer stone wall grab an eight-inch, ninety-degree angle stone ledge with anything resembling enough grip to keep himself from falling? Try doing it ten times within a minute's span, with your life on the line each time, in addition to running along or up walls for anything more than three steps at most. Why does it all work? Because it's cool as hell.

Shadowrun has been described thusly: "Say your mission was to get a can of coke from a vending machine. Step four can be 'pull out rocket launcher' and nobody will blink."
With the proper min/max techniques, it is possible to acquire an ECM-equipped armored stealth helicopter equipped with a long-range armor-piercing missile launcher with 36-hour operational endurance and a secondary heavy machine gun as a basic starting character. Whether your game master will let you, on the other hand...
A certain selection of Adept powers boost your character's unarmed combat ability. If you boost your Magic attribute high enough, it is easily possible to create a character who can punch through an armored battle tank without breaking into a sweat.
Misuses of the Restricted Gear quality could fill pages. Want a helicopter with a heavy laser cannon? Go ahead. 5 kilometer range remote-guided armor-piercing missile launcher? Sure. Power-armored troll with an assault cannon? It would take two applications of the quality to get military-grade armor and the assault cannon, but yes.

In Mixed Myth, this is treated as one of the laws of the universe (under the name of Cynmatics). It causes anything that looks awesome to be inherently more powerful, such as how a gold wand with crystals in it is more powerful than a wooden wand. The Genre Savvy characters take advantages of this.

Team Fortress 2: So it comes time to update the most overpowered and controversial class in the game with a new weapon, what do you give him? Valve gave him a claymore sword that decapitates on killing blows, a shield that resists fire and explosions, AND makes him run faster than any other class in the game. All of this for seemingly no reason other than the fact that the demoman is Scottish, and it makes a pretty cool Braveheart reference.

Nothing in Doctor Who makes any sense at all. Not the Nine Hundred And Three Years Old regenerating Human Alien who travels around time and space in a police box, not the Technobabble he delivers at a hundred kilometres an hour to justify the latest Reverse Polarity, not the perpetually vague or contradicting continuity, definitely not the Timey-Wimey Ball, not the Omnicidal Maniac motorised pepper pots armed with a whisk and a toilet plunger, and absolutely not the screwdriver that gets New Powers as the Plot Demands. There is also, however, not a single person that cares.
'The Christmas Invasion' features MURDEROUS ALIEN TIN SANTA CLAUSES who shoot FIRE OUT OF THEIR TUBAS and a swordfight to the death between the Doctor and a Sycorax for planet Earth. Just 'cause.
The 2008 Christmas special features a GIGANTIC STEAMPUNK CYBERMECHA. Sure, it was ridiculous, but... gigantic steampunk cybermecha!
In the climax of "Tooth and Claw", the Tenth Doctor uses a telescope and diamond to fire a beam capable of lifting a werewolf, easily weighing 3-400 lbs, into the air, using only moonlight.
Planet of the Dead. Flying alien stingrays! On a desert planet! And a flying bus!
Victory of the Daleks. Spitfires In SPACE!
A flying shark pulling a sled.
A Silurian lady fighting crime in Victorian England with her human maid/lesbian lover? WITH A KATANA?? Admit it, you want to watch that episode now.
Doctor Who S32 E13 "The Wedding of River Song" Balloon powered cars floating around a 'modern' London with flying-lizards, Roman soldiers on the underground, Charles Dickens on early-morning TV to talk about his latest book and Winston Churchill riding into parliament on his personal mammoth.
Dinosaurs! On a space ship! What more could you want?

The reason for the existence of superheroes in general. Superman became Mr. New Powers as the Plot Demands during the forties and fifties because it fulfilled Rule Of Cool for the target demographic. This is also the reason Batman will always have a T. Rex and a giant penny in the Batcave even as he shifts between Darker and Edgier and Lighter and Softer. Damn near every superpower or fantastic element needs Rule Of Cool to shield it from an onslaught of logic-wielding refrigerators, although a few hits will get through, usually aimed at Superman's disguise or how Spider-Man can stick to surfaces.

Why one-handed? Because she's missing her other arm. Even considering the fact that she is a full-on cyborg, the scene borders on absurd but is it jaw-droppingly awesome? Yes, oh yes, oh yes....

Kingsman: The Secret Service: Gazelle's prosthetic legs serve as her weapons of choice. Also features lots of cool gadgets James Bond style like an umbrella that serves as both a shield and a gun or a detonator in the shape of a lighter. Lots and lots of slow motion action, dynamic editing and impossible choreography too.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
The episode "Buffy vs. Dracula" had Buffy fighting Dracula. In adapting the Count for their show, the writers let him keep all his most memorable traits (sleeping in a coffin, hypnotizing people, turning into a bat, etc.) even though Buffyverse vampires don't normally work that way. He even got to dwell in a Big Fancy Castle, despite the show being set in California, where castles are rare to nonexistent (and, as Riley points out, you'd think the Main Characters would have noticed their town had a giant castle in it before now). This is all excused because, without those things, he just wouldn't feel like Dracula, and Buffy vs. Dracula would never have happened.
Joss has specifically cited this as the reason why, in the final episode of Season 7, all of the Ubervamps suddenly start dying easier than regular vampires seem to, even when being fought by normal humans.

Touhou has Marisa, who mentions that spellcards aren't made to be overwhelmingly powerful, but to have beautiful patterns and look cool in both Silent Sinner in Blue, and her own Grimoire of Marisa. That isn't to say there aren't spell cards that worry more about pure power rather than style, but as a whole, you could sell tickets to an audience to see a spellcard lightshow if you were so inclined. The fact that you can't use a card that can't be beat shows that power isn't the main focus, and the point of the system in the first place was so that youkai would ease up on the power and allow competition between themselves and humans.
The entire premise of the games run on this: it is stated that Reimu has the ability to "escape from reality" in order to effectively make herself invincible against the opposition, but then there wouldn't be much of a game to play.

Tokusatsu shows in general.
The sole reason that the monsters explode into fireballs upon defeat. It's a flashy way to get rid of a monster without more expensive post-editing effects.
Why do the bad guys send monsters one by one?
How are Humongous Mecha, let alone Combining Mecha and Transforming Mecha possible?
What's with those wacky villain getups and People in Rubber Suits?
How the heck does spandex deflect fireballs?
How do you summon suits from thin air anyway?
Why would you pose dramatically before doing so, and often after?
Why doesn't the monster just attack you while you're still posing?
How do they do those poses their first time out as if they'd practiced them, in unison in the case of teams transforming together?
Why does posing sometimes cause giant explosions in the background?
How do fists cause sparks?
Not only do monsters explode, but why the hell would you turn away from the monster when you think it's going to explode, since they don't all die with the first use of a Finishing Move?
The answer to these questions is another question: would it be as much fun if they didn't?

In GURPS the Rule of Cool is neatly quantified for Game Masters wishing to run cinematic campaigns: "The "cinematic" campaign is one where realism doesn't rule because if it did, it would constantly get in the way of the story. In a cinematic campaign, swashbuckling heroes can defeat dozens of foes because the story calls for it. Spacecraft whoosh or roar in the silence of space because fast things whoosh and powerful engines roar. Rightness always overrules mere correctness."

The Dinosaur Lords 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?

There is a part on Shadow the Hedgehog's intro cutscene showing Shadow doing Chaos Control quickly, then punching an alien. Rinse and repeat for 10 to 20 seconds. That part of the cutscene does look pretty cool, and has no effect on any aspect of the game at all, so the use of chaos control here is justified by this rule (Normally, you need a Chaos Emerald and charge up the chaos control to do it, you cannot do it instantly).
On Shadow's intro on Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), Shadow is shown running through snow while avoiding many robots shooting him. He then runs through the robots. The robots blow up, and then he bounces on a single robot to get past a big door. That's a full use of this rule. However, the Chaos Control he proceeds to use is unjustified because it doesn't look as cool as it should... especially after what he just did.
The first level of Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic escapes wrongful capture from a G.U.N. (Military organisation similar to NATO) Helicopter, and surfs down the hilly city streets on a chunk of the wing. Then at the end of the level, G.U.N. chases him with a truck-truck-truck, a 4 story tall semi so wide it barley scraped along the sides of the buildings and sends everything in the street flying on impact. [1]
The truck came back for Sonic Generations. It now chases Modern Sonic for far longer, has buzzsaws at the front and even chases Sonic UP A BUILDING. Yes, that thing can now fly.

Metroid
Most of the technology exists either to be unnecessarily cool or to be unnecessarily complicated, and often both.
There is not a single creature in the series that is not Art Major Biology in one way or another.
In Metroid Prime 2 there's Luminoth Script. It's a three-dimensional array of lit and unlit nodes, linked by lines, with the shape and which nodes are lit or unlit conveying the message. This array is impossible to read or write in two dimensions, needlessly complicated, and likely can't convey the amount of information it's shown to... but it looks awesome.

Mobile Fighter G Gundam relies on this to set itself apart from the rest of the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise.
Among the concepts that walk the infamous thin line between "clever" and "stupid" are a German ninja, a giant robot mummy, and a martial arts master who takes off his sash and uses it to slash an enemy robot in half.
The fact that the main character's special technique is called "Shining Finger" is also helped by this rule.
Everyone yells the name of their techniques as they use them, and the two main characters use The Power of Love to defeat the Big Bad by summoning the physical incarnation of the King of Hearts to blast a heart-shaped hole through it.
The entire series is a Tournament Arc with Humongous Mecha. The winner of which rules the world until the next tournament.

The creators of The Batman, the Continuity Reboot to Batman: The Animated Series, were looking for a way to set their series apart from the rest. So, they made a spin-off movie entitled, The Batman... versus Dracula. Batman. Versus. Dracula. The bat-imagery crossover lets it make a twisted kind of sense. The movie lives up to the concept. 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 The Renfield. Oh, and as if it wasn't cool enough already, The Joker is turned into a vampire for a while. VAMPIRE. JOKER.

Kingdom Hearts
The opening sequence of the first game counts. Yes, it's a tutorial level, but does it really matter when Sora is navigating a black void, walking on stained-glass floors of Disney characters, and it all culminates in a battle against a giant Heartless with a hole in its chest in the shape of a heart symbol?
The final battle in Kingdom Hearts II, where Sora and Riku fight Xemnas. They're floating in space and you can slice buildings flying at you in half and send them flying back without moving. This is so impossible the only explanation is that the laws of physics were breaking. Considering what was happening at the end of the game, it's not too far-fetched.
A lot of the combination attacks with world-specific partners fall into this area, as do the Drive Forms. Where did Donald and Goofy go? Why does Sora's roar with Beast kill everything? Why does Auron's sword do more damage when he's got Sora attached to his back? Where did Sora and Mulan get all those fireworks? Better question. Who cares!? It's freaking awesome!
Flowmotion from Kingdom Hearts 3D also runs off of this. Bouncing off walls, spinning around lampposts, dashing from building to building, and all of it can be used to fight enemies. It's given no explanation whatsoever, Sora just sees another character do it and suddenly he can too.

Bulletstorm tasks the player with trying to cook up the most outrageous kills they possibly can to score points. To facilitate this, you have a leash you can use to toss hapless enemies around and your kicks can send foes flying great distances. It's nonsensical but it's all in good fun. Having to willfully suspend your disbelief will be a non-issue once you drag that enemy in front of a big Venus flytrap to get eaten alive and your score goes up.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is generally considered at its best when it remembers that it's about Hugh Jackman running around stabbing people in the face.

In the original Gungrave if a boss comes close to dying, then using a demolition shot as the killing blow causes Grave to activate the "Graveyard Special" (Finishing Move), where his coffin launches a super-charged attack (which usually combines two or more his normal demolition shots). While this is not required to kill any boss, the demolition shot is so over the top that it looks awesome. Your player character is the reanimated corpse of a hitman with Guns Akimbo and a large coffin on his back that shoots rockets and can semi-morph into a machine gun. In the sequel, the original character gains allies. One is a blind samurai with swords that are also guns, and a ghost who uses a guitar with a dynamo in it to shoot arc lightning at his enemies. The ghost who defeats his enemies with The Power of Rock is named Rockabilly Redcadillac.

In 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?

Supreme Commander features units that operate by this trope, such as the experimentals. The Fatboy, Czar, and Megalith are Military Mashup Machines par excellence, the Galactic Colossus is a textbook example of Awesome, but Impractical, the Monkeylord is just kind of the Monkeylord... the list goes on.

Transformers:
Several commercials for the 2007 movie were constructed of the robots appearing onscreen and onlookers standing around saying "cool."
Animated takes it to new extremes. For starters, Optimus Prime has a rocket-powered axe.
Prowl is an alien ninja robot. Who turns into a motorcycle. Why would giant alien robots have ninjas, you ask? Stupid question.
Optimus Prime and Soundwave getting into a rock-off?

Great Mazinger: Great Mazinger has twin swords for Dual Wielding, Armed Legs, shoots lightning bolts, and its Rocket Punch rotates relentlessly to increase the punching strength (combining the trope with This Is a Drill and Everything Is Better With Spinning). The Professor is a The Home Base's upper part can detach off the main building and fly, and the lower part can also detach off and swim through the ocean. The Big Bad is a God-Emperor, ruler of an ancient civilization Beneath the Earth, the Dragon-in-Chief is a giant Caped Mecha with a sword can cleave a mountain in half, and the Robeasts resemble beasts, ancient warriors or evil spirits. And one of their bases is a mobile Island Base that is a blooding volcano can erupt at will.

Saint Seiya: It's hard to question the plot when bishonen in cosmic armor and eighties multicolour hair are beating the ever-loving stuffing out of each other for every reason under the sun, and with every attack under the sun too (from Mind Rape to Something About a Rose) whilst running up stairs and visiting Hades in time for tea. It's so much fun you just HAVE to go along with it!

Super Smash Bros.: There is no other way to justify scenes such as a crossdressing ninja punching a hole through a fighter jet to fight its anthropomorphic fox pilot. Following this, both fighters are stopped by being offered tea by a princess. All of them are on top of a moving airship that is currently engaged in combat. The storymode in Brawl is built on "that would look cool".
