* During ''Manga/TheVoynichHotel'''s climax, Elena arrives just in the nick of time to save Taizou from certain death at the hands of the Yakuza, who managed to track him down and are in the middle of torturing him for stealing a BriefcaseFullOfMoney from them. [[ChekhovsGag Funny thing is]], if she hadn't made the mistake of relocating Taizou's heart to the right of his body during a magical surgery earlier on, she would've arrived to find him dead.

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', this trope is the bread and butter of the action scenes throughout the entire series. Someone will ''always'' show up at the last moment to save the day, guns blazing. Some examples:
** After Yukimura rejects Isanami's plea for help and turns her away, she and Saizo are attacked by her pursuers and chained up. Sasuke, who had been established as a rival ninja, suddenly shows up to turn things around and Yukimura steps out of the shadows to reveal his real intent was to flush out the enemy chasing her.
** Kakei's introduction is to show up as Saizo is being [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomped]] by Hanzo at the festival, rifle in hand and immediately begin firing.
** With Isanami [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes out like a light]], Kakei [[AttemptedRape under assault]], and Saizo [[CurbStompBattle losing to]] Hanzo at the Izumo shrine, the recently [[DefeatMeansFriendship defeated]] Kamanosuke swoops in from out of nowhere to stop Hanzo from killing [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou the guy he wants to kill him]].
** Seikai and Kamanosuke were ''not'' invited along to Kyoto, but their choice to ignore this decision sure came in handy later as the others nearly lost the whole party to Benmaru's DeathCourse before they showed up to save the day.
** With the Braves pursued by Masamune's army and cornered against the shore of Lake Biwa, they are saved by sudden canon fire as Kakei and Jinpachi unexpectedly sail up out of nowhere.
** On a particularly cold night, Sasuke [[spoiler:jumps through the window to rescue a badly wounded Rokuro from [[AnIcePerson Ana]]. Rokuro repays him later by getting up just long enough to repel an accidental darkness blast from Isanami while Sasuke is frozen in ice.]]
** [[spoiler:Hattori Hanzo,]] of all people, does this in the sequel when Benmaru is kidnapped, cutting the kidnappers into ribbons before they even realize it's happened, to the shock of Saizo and Sasuke who were pursuing ineffectually.
** The climax of ''[=Brave10 S=]'' is fundamentally a prolonged series of BigDamnHeroes moments as everybody who was previously scattered arrives in style at the battlefield, one after the next, to save whoever is in mortal peril in that chapter and look cool while doing it.

Cue Rei jumping in at the last moment, blocking Ramiel's beam with a frickin' space shuttle! Okay, fine, the modified armor of a space shuttle, but still! [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Awesome.]]

** In ''End of Evangelion'', Shinji is being held at gunpoint by three JSSDF soldiers, one pressing a gun barrel directly on his head. Just before he pulls the trigger, Misato bursts in at the last minute, gunning down all the soldiers and saving Shinji in a manner most impressive. These are all trained, hardened soldiers, and Misato has likely never seen an actual battle her whole life, making it more awesome.
*** Horrifyingly subverted later, when Asuka appears and completely trashes the attacking army. The day looks saved, until the MP Evas show up and [[spoiler:tear her to pieces.]]
*** Awesomely unsubverted in the manga adaptation, where [[spoiler: the MP Evas are going to kill Asuka...and then Shinji shows up in Unit-01 and tears them apart.]]
*** And DoubleSubversion later on: Rei is the ApocalypseMaiden and can cause Instrumentality, but she tries to talk Shinji out of doing it. She can't, and SEELE causes it instead. Then she talks him round to reversing it.

** One of the most epic examples to date comes from back in the Alabasta arc with "Mr. Prince"--wherein Sanji, with a little help from Chopper, manages to use his skills as TheStrategist and take advantage of his SpannerInTheWorks status to rescue the ''entire'' rest of the captured crew (including Vivi) [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Smoker]] by outsmarting Crocodile and luring him away, allowing him to sneak in and free all of them, complete with [[IShallTauntYou leaving behind a taunting note for Crocodile to find]]. To date, this is probably still Sanji's CrowningMomentOfAwesome in the series.

For added awesomeness, said citizens were cheering his name and counting the seconds to his recovery before the save, and happily scream "HE'S BAAAAAACK!" after it.]]

** Mewtwo gets no less than four in ''Anime/PokemonMewtwoReturns:'' first when he saves a [[BusFullOfInnocents Bus Full of Innocents]] from being hurtled to their deaths by a whirlwind (though he claims he only did this to keep himself and his clone Pokémon protected), second when he swoops down and stops clone Pikachu from attacking Ash's Pikachu, who would have gotten seriously injured otherwise, third when he stops Giovanni from paralyzing and capturing clone Pikachu, clone Meowth, Ash's Pikachu, and [[ItMakesSenseInContext Team Rocket's Meowth,]] and fourth, at the end, [[spoiler: when he rises out of the healing spring of Mt. Quena and, in a [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment of Awesome,]] teleports it underground to defend it.]]

Cue the arrival of the Max Heart, Splash Star and Yes teams, who quickly join their Cure companions and defiantly tell them they aren't taking the MacGuffin! Cure Blossom suddenly starts flailing at their awesome moment while Cure Marine wonders [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters where these people came from?!]]]].

** Siegfried is ''made'' of this trope. In his [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome most prominent example]], he flies a small plane to a heavily defended island, ''jumps from the plane'' to get to the arena, ''dodges missiles'' on the way down, [[CurbStompBattle curb stomps]] his opponent, ''composes music on his body'', and then passes out from ''forty three days of sleep deprivation''. The best part? ''HE WAS SINGING THE WHOLE DAMN TIME.''
* In ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'', Sousuke tends to have awesome entrances like these to save the day. In fact, the amount of times he does this to his ArchEnemy Gauron are so numerous, Gauron eventually {{lampshades}} it mockingly. In the finale of the first season, Gauron tackles Sousuke (while in their [[HumongousMecha AS]]), and holds him down while he [[TakingYouWithMe tries to self destruct]], teasingly telling Sousuke: "Well well, how do you like this? It's such a disgrace like this, isn't it? You can't act like a big damn hero and save the day in a cool way." Guess what: [[spoiler:He does it anyways]].

** [[spoiler:Yusuke is dead...again.]] Sensui, the man who [[spoiler:killed Yusuke]], has just opened the door to Makai, blocked the strongest attack in the series, the Dragon of the Darkness Flame, without even raising a single hand, and forced Kuwabara to cut down the only barrier remaining between the two worlds to get at him. [[spoiler: The remaining heroes have all gained power equivalent to A+ Class demons, the second highest power class, and yet when they try to exact their revenge, Sensui still makes complete fools of them without even using a tenth of his full power, and Kuwabara, Kurama, and Hiei are all on the ground, unable to continue fighting. Sensui is ready to kill the trio, when who shows up BackFromTheDead and ready to kick ass? Yusuke, alive and well, and more powerful than ever thanks to his mysterious demonic ancestor]]. The fight that ensues is undeniably one of the biggest AwesomeMoments in the entire series.

** Yusuke, exhausted from [[spoiler:his trial with absorbing Genkai's Spirit Orb]], is sleeping on Keiko under a tree during the Semifinal matches against Team Uraotogi. Three lower-class demons show up and start perving all over Keiko, amping up their threats when they realise that she has Yusuke with her. Just as the biggest one of them is about to rip Keiko and Yusuke apart, a yo-yo (Rinku's signature weapon) comes flying out of nowhere and pastes him in the face. The two left standing are left with a resounding OhCrap moment when they see Rinku and Chu standing there, ready to defend the unconscious Yusuke. As they wet themselves in fear and turn to run the other way, a particular pair of Demon World ninjas appear and block their path. ''None of the four of them say a single word'' until after the lower-class demons have run away. What follows doubles as a [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome CMoH]].

** Two different non-typical examples occur in the team's match against Team Masho. In the first, Yusuke was disqualified from the last of the five fights on a technicality due to the opposing team's manager bribing the officials, Hiei and The Masked Fighter have been trapped behind a barrier throughout the entire match and, thus, are disqualified as well, and Kurama lost his (third) match [[ItMakesSenseInContext thanks to the life-sucking plant growing in his bloodstream.]] The only option left to them seems to be [[TokenEvilTeammate Hiei]]'s killing spree idea. They are saved from that by [[{{Determinator}} Kuwabara]], who had previously let three BrainwashedAndCrazy fighters beat him senseless to snap them back to normal, draging his broken and bloody body into the ring so that a trained fighter can make it more broken and bloody. The second example occurs during this fight. Kuwabara is rather predictably not doing well. Risho happily informs Kuwabara that his body is tapping into his spirit energy just to keep him moving, meaning he can't summon his spirit sword. Kuwabara takes this in stride and [[CastFromHitPoints decides to use his own life energy]] to end the match with a double kill, which will count as a win for his side. He says goodbye to his friends, charges in screaming, and grapples Risho in mid-attack. Before Kuwabara can off himself, his love interest Yukina arrives. [[PowerOfLove This give him the strength to]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome bitch-slap Risho across the whole damn stadium.]]

* In the final ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato''[=/=]''Star Blazers'' movie, we get a Big Damn Heros moment from an unlikely source. The planet Aquarius is on a collision course for Earth. To divert the planet, the Star Force has blocked the Wave Motion Gun and filled the Yamato with explosives. As the Yamato moves to intercept the planet, the aliens that are herding Aquarius towards its target surround the Yamato. If the Star Forces gets into a fight now, the Yamato will be surely be destroyed. As the alien commander gives the order to fire, one of his ships explodes - under fire from the Gamalon fleet. Former arch-nemesis Desslok now swoops in and saves the very race he tried to exterminate just a few years ago - and IT IS AWESOME!
