Added DiffLines:
* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the ''[[Series/LesPetitsMeurtresDAgathaChristie Les Petits Meurtres d'Agatha Christie]]'' episode "Jeux de glace" (adapted from ''They Do It With Mirrors''): Laurence hears Avril scream, finds her struggling against a big, mean-looking guy, and [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomps]] him into unconsciousness. Avril is not impressed; she'd [[PeekabooCorpse stumbled across a dead body]] and subsequently freaked out, and the big guy was just trying to calm her down.

Time of the D Octor is The Cavalry.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': [[spoiler:Mickey and Jackie]] showing up to save [[spoiler:Sarah Jane]] in "Journey's End". ** Not to mention the Doctor smashing through a mirror astride a white horse to save Madame De Pompadour from the creepy clockwork men in "The Girl in the Fireplace".

** Taken to '''epic''' proportions in ''The Day of the Doctor:'' [[spoiler: The current Doctor, all 11 of his past incarnations, ''as well as his next incarnation'']] play this role for [[spoiler: the people of Gallifrey]] during the climax. *** [[spoiler: The Time Lords]] return the favour in ''TheTimeOfTheDoctor''. *** Earlier than that, [[spoiler: Three incarnations of The Doctor made a Big Damn Heroes entrance into a room that was completely TARDIS proof by freezing themselves in a piece of Gallifreyan art, arranging for that art to be moved to the room in question, and then sonicing an active Dalek through the picture frame to step in and avert a nuclear holocaust]].

** One particularly fantastic human-led BigDamnHeroes moment occurs in Victory of the Daleks, when right as the Doctor is about to be killed because his self-destruct mechanism is revealed to be [[ItMakesSenseInContext a jammie-dodger]], he is saved by three hastily constructed ''[[SchizoTech space]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Spitfires]]'' ** Santa Claus, of all people, gets one in Last Christmas.

* ''{{Primeval}}'': Nick and Cutter are being chased by a Raptor. Connor, who's been ridiculed all episode for his lack of gun skills, barrels in from behind Nick, yells him out of the way and takes a fully grown Raptor down with one shot.

* ''{{Psych}}'': "Big Damn Heroes" is Lassiter and Juliet's standby mode. Listing all the times they've kicked down doors with guns at the ready to rescue Shawn and Gus from the villain of the week (sometimes more than once in a single episode) would cover at least 1/3 of all episodes ever aired. The duo is usually together during these moments, although both Lassie and Jules have pulled off a handful of solo BDH's too. * ''{{Raven}}'': Pulls one of these at the ending of ''The Secret Temple''. About [[InformedAbility bloody time too]].

*** When Horatio is about to be told that he's flunked his exam, a fire ship appears and is about to destroy the "Indy". Hornblower and his examinators try to avert the event, and Hornblower and Captain Foster board the ''freaking'' fire ship -- and change her course, saving the "Indy" and her men. Captain Pellew is impressed.

His promotion was confirmed in the last dispatches. He is now commissioned Lieutenant Hornblower.[[/note]].

* ''TheManFromUNCLE'': Happens fairly often in the 60s spy series. Usually Solo is in JamesBondage (often with the GirlOfTheWeek beside him) when Kuryakin will swoop in at the nick of time; occasionally it happens with the roles reversed. One example: The second season episode "The King of Diamonds Affair", when Kuryakin arrives to save Solo, the innocent of the week, and a [[HeelFaceTurn villain-turned-hero]] who are strapped to cannons with lit fuses which are about to fire:

* ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'': In a two-part episode of the 2004 reimagining of the show, called "Exodus", the titular ship is attacked by three Cylon Baseships while attempting to help colonists on the planet New Caprica escape. The ship is severely damaged, and somber music plays while the camera zooms out as the Baseships pummel ''Galactica'' to death in the cold darkness of space...until a missile, then ''more'' missiles, fire off the edge of the screen, and the {{Battlestar}} ''Pegasus'' hurtles to the rescue, just in the nick of time. This is just the high point to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome heroic events]] which kicked off with a [[CasualDangerDialog deadpan]] [[PreAssKickingOneLiner "Prepare for turbulence."]]

The security detail that rescued Kirk was a small army, and they were wearing red shirts, but they were *not* a Redshirt Army!
** Episode "Friday's Child" has Kirk, Spock, and [=McCoy=] unarmed, outnumbered, and surrounded by a Klingon force. "Too bad the cavalry doesn't come over the hill anymore," Kirk actually says just before Scotty and a RedshirtArmy beams down to save the day.
