* 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.

*** [[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.

* This trope occurs in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' games several times, with Master Chief rescuing marines, or Johnson rescuing the chief. The third game directly references the TropeNamer, as a character called Sergeant Reynolds, played by Nathan Fillion, states, "Looks like we got here just in the nick of time. What's that make us?" Gamers everywhere immediately replied "Big Damn Heroes, sir!"
