I was wondering if there's a verb or phrasal verb that means "to make something awesome to the extreme."


A: This place looks terrible. B: Just wait until I'm through with it. I'm going to make-it-awesome

Sorry if this question seems a bit narrow for SE. I hope it's not.

  • If you want something really informal, there is super mega awesome to the max extreme awesomeness times infinity to the power of a ninja, but I wouldn't consider it a serious answer – Shevliaskovic Mar 1 '16 at 16:14

    @shevliaskovic Although I expect most answers to be informal, the one you suggested is a bit too much to even consider. :( – URB Mar 1 '16 at 16:29
  • "Exceptionalize it" ! – Graffito Mar 1 '16 at 16:32
  • @Shevliaskovic I hear ninjas often take exception to being used as exponents. – John Clifford Mar 1 '16 at 16:40

    Given that to make something awesome isn't really "standard English", I think you might want to consider this from Urban Dictionary: awesomeize - verb (pronounced "awe-si-mize")- to make awesome. – FumbleFingers Mar 1 '16 at 16:42

As I recall Robert Downey Jr. once said.

"Awesome the crap out of something"

Here "awesome" is used as a verb. "the crap out of something" adds the idea of "to the extreme"

I believe you're looking for something informal. Although uncommon, you may consider it.

  • I simply liked this one. – URB Mar 17 '16 at 16:05

"Just wait till I awesomesauce this place!"

(adj.) US informal Extremely good; excellent



I'm going to upgrade it.

Or maybe just something like "I'm going to build/spruce/clean it up." would work too?



German slang literally translating to "Super ape cool" and used to indicate a situation of particular or even excessive excellence. Check Google translate for a passable job on the pronunciation.
