* 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.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Earth 2160}}'' we have one example. 3rd mission of Lunar Corporation campaign -- two main characters (one of which was wounded in bomb explosion) are about to be torn to shreds by enemy mech with [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill FOUR gatling cannons ]] when suddenly three LC hover tanks shows up and without problem destroy above-mentioned mech.

** In ''Mists of Pandaria'', after completing the two areas Valley of the Four Winds and Krasarang Wilds, the great wall holding back the insectoid Mantid is broken and they begin to swarm a village in the valley. Chen Stormstout arrives to give a speech about defending their homes, and soon afterwards [[TheCavalry nearly every major NPC from both zones march down the hillside.]]

* The same line occurs in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' on Virmire, when you ride in to rescue the Salarian recon squad. They are less than impressed with your BadAss selves, wondering why the Council didn't send the army they asked for.

** Zero's introduction in ''VideoGame/MegaManX1'' is another BigDamnHeroes moment that establishes him as a serious BadAss.

*** [[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 -- readily forgiving her and asking her to stand with them and fight.]] Much [[BadAss badassery]] followed.

* This trope happens too many times in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel I and II'' that it has created a minor BrokenBase about how weak Class VII is versus the characters they're going up against are way out of their league. The second game kick starts it with Toval rescuing Rean before he's about to die from a magic knight while he's exhausted.
