* ''FireEmblem'' does this in every game out in the US (probably every game, period), generally as reinforcement to the story's lord showing when they are in a really serious bind. However on easier difficulties this often leads to the reinforcements needing AMAZING projection as they aren't as leveled.
** The first example of the lord getting to be the "Big Damn Hero" is in ''FireEmblem 7'' (released in the states as ''FireEmblem''). Florina (a supporter to the tutorial chapter's lord, Lyn) arrives to the main team of heroes to tell how her Lyn and the castle are under attack, naturally the main team of the game go to save them.
** 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]].

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' backstory, the [[{{Wutai}} Akaviri]] race of "[[EvilIsDeathlyCold Snow Demons]]" known as the Kamal attacked Tamriel during the 2nd Era, causing significant damage in both Skyrim and Morrowind, home of the [[HornyVikings Nords]] and [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmer (Dark Elves)]], respectively. Despite their long history of animosity, the two races were able to form an EnemyMine to repel the Kamal invaders. They were initially successful, but faced the threat of Kamal reinforcements. That ended when the [[LizardFolk Argonians]] joined the fight, helped to break the Kamal lines, and then [[CurbStompBattle slaughtered them all]] in a decisive final battle.

* XCOMEnemyUnknown: Your characters will barge through a closed door or a shut window if it gets in the way of their movement. This turns into a save-the-day moment if the squad member in question is barging through doors to save civilians from feral alien animals that are sent to the planet to murder people and turn them into MrSeahorse zombies.

** The "Covering Fire" ability for Support classes allows their Overwatch shots to trigger on any enemy action, not just moving. This can lead to situations where a trooper fires upon an alien because its' suppressing their teammate.

* Depending on choices made, the player can be this twice in the beginning of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''. Once with Butch's mom, who's being chewed apart by radroaches, and again for the Lone Wanderer's close friend Amata, who's being interrogated by her father and the sadistic Officer Mack. [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential And there's nothing quite so satisfying and blowing Mack's head off while his back is turned to you.]]
** Oh yes there is. Try [[BlastingItOutOfTheirHands blasting his baton away]] 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.
* A minor one in the Silver Shroud quest of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''. After Sinjin [[spoiler:kidnaps Kent]], the Sole Survivor/Silver Shroud bursts into the basement of Milton General Hospital in a BDH moment, with Sinjin and Avery [[spoiler:holding Kent hostage with a gun to his head]]. However, it's usually immediately averted, as Sinjin and Avery [[spoiler:will immediately shoot and kill Kent]] upon seeing the Shroud (although, if the player is ''extremely'' careful, this can be avoided). [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Oops]].

** Speaking of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsMX'', there's also the ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion]]'' mission, with Asuka at the receiving end of a NoHoldsBeatdown by the MP EVAs when, out of nowhere, [[MachineRoboRevengeOfChronos Rom Stoll]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Bpx66Ld-TI shows up, espouses the significance of a "divine intervention"]]... then ''everyone'' shows up, full Morale and ready to stomp a mudhole in the MP EVAs.
