*** Later in Palumpolum, [[spoiler:after Hope has forgiven Snow, Snow collapses from exhaustion and is almost immediately attacked by an enormous Sanctum war machine. Hope tries to take the thing on [[CrowningMomentofAwesome by himself]], but it is [[HopelessBossFight almost impossible to destroy it]]. [[FissionMailed Once Hope is defeated]], Lightning and Fang arrive and join the fight, with Hope revived.]]
*** [[spoiler: During the cutscene between the Final Boss' two forms, Lightning, Snow, Sazh and Hope are all dead (or at least Cie'th), Fang is being tortured and resurrected by Orphan mercilessly, and all Vanille can do is stand around and watch. Suddenly, a massive blast of magic hits Orphan, and Fang's body (thrown from the blast) is caught by Snow, with Lightning, Sazh and Hope just behind him -- [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming readily forgiving her and asking her to stand with them and fight]].]] Much [[BadAss badassery]] followed.

** Second example is in ''Fire Emblem 10'', right when [[spoiler:Lucia is going to be executed by the rebellion, The Greil Mercenaries in PERFECT Big Damn Heroes form all show up. What's great is that in the cutscene for their arrival, each one arrives saving another member of the party from being attacked. So any time the villains attempt a counter strike, they are instantly taken down. Making it a string of Big Damn Hero moments]]. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome One of the best--if not the best--cutscenes in the game.]]

** An official ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha 3'' manga features a rather [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome epic]] version of this. After the BigBad is defeated, [[SmugSnake Son Ganlong]] appears to take advantage of the Alpha Numbers' weakened state and finish them once and for all. At that point all the Alphas who didn't return in 3 show up to support their friends and dispense an almighty smackdown.

** The third game's ''Citadel'' DLC has a truly glorious BDH moment. Shepard (unarmored and injured) and his/her Love Interest are pinned by a shuttle full of armed mercenaries (including a [[MoreDakka Geth Spitfire]]). Just when things look bad, Urdnot Wrex (or James Vega, if Wrex is dead or hates you) comes crashing through the window a floor above with a war cry, and crushes/elbow-drops the shuttle hard enough to force it down onto the landing pad. He then leaps into the shuttle and starts beating the crap out of the very surprised mooks with his bare fists (and his [[UseYourHead armor-plated head]]), knocking them senseless and tossing some of them out the doors and over the edge.

** Oh yes there is. Try [[BlastingItOutOfTheirHands blasting his baton away]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome just as he's about to bring it down on Amata's head]], waiting for him to turn around, and putting three rounds right between his beady little eyes.

** In FireEmblemAwakening, Sumia manages to rescue Prince Chrom and fetch him on her Pegasus when he's about to become a HumanPincushion. This is so well-placed that [[PlayerCharacter the Avatar]] uses it to create the Pair Up strategy.

* Towards the end of ''LufiaII'', an army of monsters appears to prevent your GlobalAirship from taking off for the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon. In comes [[spoiler:the BadassNormal Dekar, who had supposedly died in a Heroic Sacrifice much earlier in the game]], ''riding a whale'' for no other reason than to [[RuleOfCool make for a more epic entrance]].

** In ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam'', Mario and Luigi are, again, OneHitKO'd--this time by a [[BoosInMookClothing stack of Paper Goombas]] that form into a giant steamroller form together. VideoGame/PaperMario then immediately floats into the scene and takes them on just as they were about to leave and report their victory to [[BigBad Bowser]].

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' makes the trope a ''game mechanic''. In [[ThatOneBoss particularly tough boss battles]], when Sora is defeated there's a chance [[MemeticBadass King Mickey]] will suddenly arrive to save him, fighting the boss in his place to charge up an energy meter, reviving Sora to fight again when it fills completely. The chance for it to happen at all is random, but it's possible to even have it happen multiple times in the same fight.

* Happens in every case of the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series at some point. The prosecution appears to have won and Phoenix is ready to give up but then...'''''OBJECTION!''''' Someone comes in with new evidence to save the day. The last case in the second game ends up boiling down to stalling until the big damn hero arrives.
