Japanese is just cool

Reasons the Japanese language is cool:

”逃げろー!”
just sounds better than
"Run for it!" or "Run away!" or "Flee!" Flee doesn't really have the right effect.

”いやだ!”
also sounds better than
"No way!" or "Yuck" or especially "There's no way I want to do that"

Any other examples? Suggestions solicited.
