** Subverted in issue 14. Darkwing battles a new, seemingly indestructible tank of a supervillain called Cat-tankerous, and is not having any luck - all of a sudden, out of absolutely nowhere, Launchpad flies to the rescue and [[RammingAlwaysWorks rams the plane straight into Cattankerous]]. It doesn't actually work.

** In the climatic battle at the end of the book, Rayek and the Holt Trolls charge in just as the Wolfriders and the Go-Backs were about to be beaten. It is lampshaded with Rayek complaining to Cutter that if he had sent Petalwing the Preserver back to guide them, they could have arrived much sooner.

* In ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'' #245, Galactus is about to feast upon Earth, the FF held helpless in energy bubbles as the planet-destroying machine is set up. Galactus reaches for the lever to activate it...'''I SEE THEE NAY!''' A blast of lightning rocks him away as Thor and the Avengers arrive on the scene to help the FF.

* In the rebooted TeenTitans #1, Deathstroke is about to points the muzzle of his rifle right in Robin's face and pulls the trigger. Cue Kid Flash appearing out of nowhere, plucking the bullet right out of the air, and quipping, "Bit of overkill, isn't it, using an elephant gun on a helpless teenager?" What follows is a truly epic curbstomping by a superfast yellow and red blur against a one-eyed assassin.

* In Transformers AllHailMegatron, the Autobots were trapped on Cybertron with an army of Insecticons that was busy overruning them. Right up to the point that Omega Supreme arrives and turns the tide [[IncrediblyLamePun singlehandedly]]. When he was first introduced in one of the Spotlight books prior to that, Optimus said that Omega Supreme existed more or less for that purpose.

* ''Comicbook/{{Justice}}'' has a scene where Superman has been dog-piled by four supervillains. Blindsided and beaten on by Bizarro and Solomon Grundy, weakened by Metallo's Kryptonite heart, his powers drained by the Parasite, Superman is helpless. The whole while, he's left wondering why none of the JLA are responding to his distress call, and finally, in a rather chilling scene, Superman cries out for help. Cue Big Damn Hero moment as a lightning bolt flashes across the sky, all of the villains get an "oh shit" look on their faces as a red and gold blur comes down and proceeds to take them apart. Bizarro? Punched into orbit. Metallo? Kryptonite yanked out of his chest. Parasite? Had said Kryptonite jammed in his chest, and since he had stolen Superman's powers and weaknesses, was instantly defeated by it. Solomon Grundy? Beaten unconscious into a crater. In the space of a page, these four powerful villains are handily and decisively dealt with. The blur finally slows down enough to reveal who it is, offering a hand to help Superman up.
