--> '''The Shadow:''' Though you handle a saber with confidence, you are no graduate of Heidelberg. This scar is not a dueling scar.
--> '''Wolff:''' I will cut your tongue from your head!
--> '''The Shadow:''' You may try, but you will fail! You and your plan will dissappear in fire...
--> '''Wolff:''' What could '''you''' know of my plan?
--> '''The Shadow:''' To hold Germany back from the borders of Russia-to cast England into the Nazi furnace-to manipulate Hitler through his weak-willed deputy hess to insure that Russia have enough time to arm herself to attack the widespread reich and devour the terror with a larger terror! Such is your plan!
--> '''Wolff''': What would '''you''' know of terror ?
--> '''The Shadow''': HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. I know '''your''' terror Friedrich Wolff-or should I say Ivan Fedorovich Volko, for '''Russian''' you were born and '''Russian''' you '''are!'''. And it is from Russian your secret terror pursues you! Look long into this ring, Ivan Volko! This ring is your doom long postponed! It was a gift to me in my youth from the hand of '''Czar Nicholas!'''. Does that make you quail? Long ago I've sought you and many were the hounds I set on your scent-a foul corruption easily followed! Your trail of bodies, of slaughter and willful pain, ever seeking to cut the pain from yourself! I stand here now to address that pain.
--> '''Wolff:''' What could you know...of my...pain ?
--> '''The Shadow:''' There was a house in Russia, in Ekaterinburg. July 16, 1918!
--> '''Wolff:''' You can't know this!
--> '''The Shadow:''' There was a basement room...
--> '''Wolff:''' No! The dream...The nightmare!
--> '''The Shadow:''' The shots...
--> '''Wolff:''' The screaming, the crying...
--> '''The Shadow:''' The Czar Nicholas, his wife Alexandra, their children...
--> '''Wolff:''' Yes...yes! The children.
--> '''The Shadow:''' And the one...
--> '''Wolff:''' The little grand duchess, yes, god forgive me!
--> '''The Shadow:''' Anastasia.
--> '''Wolff:''' Anastasia.
--> '''The Shadow:''' She scratches your face as you use...
--> '''Wolff:''' My bayonet, forgive me!
--> '''The Shadow:''' Beg '''Satan''' for forgiveness, you'll not find it this side of '''hell!'''
--> '''Wolff:''' '''KILL ME!'''
--> '''The Shadow:''' Die by your own blood-stained hand.
--> '''Wolff:''' A GUN, PLEASE!
--> '''The Shadow:''' The sword. Skewer yourself, pig.
--> ''(Wolff brings the swords to his throat as the words "SEDUCER, LIAR, CHEAT, TORTURER, MURDERER, DIE! DIE! DIE!" appear on panel)''
--> '''Wolff:''' EEAAAGH-AGHHHH
--> '''The Shadow:''' HA HA HA HA HA HA

* ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon'': Mortadelo is usually the one who saves the day. Whenever another one does it, expect it to be one of these moments.
** Filemón got an EPIC one at the end of "Las embajadas chifladas". See the ChekhovsGun entry for that.
** Superintendente Vicente got his at the end of "El bacilón". See the DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu entry.
** An unrelated example would be when Mortadelo used an [[CelestialBody ''universe'']] disguise in the last panel of "El disfraz, cosa falaz".

* Awesome/WorldWarHulk



* The closing sequences of Creator/GrantMorrison-scripted nasty follow-up, ''Dare: The Future''. "I sold everything EXCEPT my soul..." And later, "Trust me. It's EASY." These quotes mean nothing out of context, but when you read the whole thing...YOWSAH is the only word. Also, from the same comic, Digby's Last Stand ("Eh-up, John Willie, y'bastard!")

* ''ShaolinCowboy'' consists of these. The best ones are the main character turning just enough to reveal that the panel-wide pole he's carrying has [[spoiler: ''chainsaws at both ends,'' which he then uses to ''cut a shark in half down the middle as he leaps out at him;'']] the same character taking out a seemingly endless army in its entirety by [[spoiler: ''punching a crab...one time;'']] and ''Creator/GeofDarrow's'' CrowningMomentOfAwesome, the epically massive WorldTurtle that has to be the single most detailed two-page spread in comics history.

* ''ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}'': Iznogoud, of all people, gets one in ''Iznogoud Finally Caliph'', where he is put on trial in what he pretty much knows is going to be a KangarooCourt, since an entire conspiracy is behind it. He convinces the Caliph to act on his behalf, but the conspiracy has the trial take place right as the Caliph is sleeping, so they can sentence him to death without any interruption. Iznogoud answers by [[BatmanGambit pretending he didn't hear the sentence, until the court is screaming it loud enough to awaken the Caliph]]. Since awakening the Caliph without a good reason is a major crime, and announcing a sentence ''isn't'' a good reason, the court is forced to justify themselves by saying they awakened him so he would help Iznogoud as promised.
