** Another one happens in the episode "The Secret Society", when Batman is facing five supervillans after tracking down Clayface to a factory.
-->'''Clayface''': You didn't think I would come here without reinforcements, did you?
-->'''Batman''': Wish I thought of that. (Garage door falls down, revealing the rest of the members) Oh, wait, I did.

* ''Film/GreenLanternEmeraldKnights'': The entire Corps is collectively moving a ''planet'' toward their enemy using all their willpower, but it's not enough. And then, who shows up via portal but the Green Lantern who "doesn't socialize": Mogo [[spoiler: who is not only a Green Lantern but a living planet. Heroes don't get much bigger than that]].

** Zuko also saves the Gaang from Combustion Man, the very assassin he hired to kill them at the beginning of the season, which helps show (most of) them that he is making a genuine attempt to atone for his past actions.

* In the season 3 premiere of ''{{Metalocalypse}}'', a CorruptCorporateExecutive was trying to force Dethklok to sign a new contract advantageous to him. Nathan was going to put his signature on it [[spoiler:when Charles Ofdensen, their [[FakingTheDead thought dead manager]], shows up in the doorway to stop them.]]

* ''BeastWars'' has too many of these to list, generally set up by cutting to the good guys headed towards where they're needed, then cutting back to their destination and letting a scene play out until it's a good time for it to be interrupted by weapons fire. The best example of the trope occurred in "Coming Of The Fuzors, Part 2", when the Maximals are outgunned and surrounded. When it looks like they're done for (Megatron says, "Finish it."), the wall of the Maximal baseship blows open to reveal the new-and-improved Optimus Primal, BackFromTheDead and ready for a fight.
* ''{{Transformers}}'': Full of moments like these, mostly when a character is either first introduced, or appeared to be at death's door previously. One of the best examples has to be the episode "Key to Vector Sigma" where [[spoiler:Menasor has Superion pinned and is about to impale him on a large spike - only for Omega Supreme, nearly destroyed earlier in that episode, to show up and KO him]].

--->'''Pariah''': ''(holding Danny and Vlad in his hand, both knocked out)'' Ghosts and humans! Is there no end to this day's surprises?
--->'''Valerie''': Hey, stoneface! Surprise! ''(shoots him in the face)''

** A notable instant is Cosmo saving Timmy from Dark Laser Han Solo-style. Definitely one of that goof's [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome best moments]].



** Splinter gets one of his own in the first battle with the Shredder, though given it was Shredder who [[spoiler: killed his master and was now trying to kill his sons,]] it makes sense he'd want a piece of the guy.

* In an episode of ''RockyAndBullwinkle'' Bullwinkle refuses to put out the fuse of a bomb until the last moment because "Heroes always arrive in the TA-DA! nick of time."
* Bunnies get to be BigDamnHeroes in ''WatershipDown'', when Hazel and his runners lure a Big Damn Dog to the warren, just in time to save Bigwig's life by decimating Woundwort's troops.

* Bob in ''ReBoot'' gets to do one of these right when the Web Riders are about to slaughter everyone on the Saucy Mare. But instead of fighting the Web Riders he orders them to stop, having gained their trust offscreen.

* Believe it or not, ScoobyDoo gets one in episode 10 of [[ScoobyDooMysteryInc Mystery Inc]]. He [[spoiler: rescues Velma and Shaggy from a demonic robot dog by [[ForkliftFu beating it senseless with a forklift]]. Think about that for a second. Scooby Doo beats a robot dog that would make the terminator proud to a pulp ''with a forklift''.]] Words cannot describe how awesome it is.

* ''SuperFriends'' had a story where a time traveling alien was forced by the Phantom Zone prisoners to take them to Superboy's time to kill him. They are nearly successful until Superman and Green Lantern suddenly appear out of nowhere to stop them; it turns out that as soon as the alien was freed, he alerted the Super Friends about what their enemies are attempting and guided them to the proper time to intervene.

* This happens a lot in ''JonnyQuest''. One example would be in ''Manhattan Maneater'', when an amoral hunter is about to shoot a white tiger. Just before he pulls the trigger, a [[ScaryBlackMan gangster]] steps in the way and refuses to back down. And another happens not a minute later, when the tiger leaps to attack - only to be shot by a tranquilizer, thanks to Race and Dr. Quest who just made it to the scene.

* In ''PhineasAndFerbTheMovieAcrossTheSecondDimension'', this happens a few times. The first is Candace-2 saving Phineas, Ferb, Perry, Dr. Doofenshmirtz, and Candace from a lava pit after they were being sent to their doom. She [[ItMakesSenseInContext rides a giant lawn gnome]], smashing into the MechaMooks and throwing the Other Dimensioninator remote to Phineas, which he catches.

* The Creator/VanBeurenStudios cartoon shorts used this a few times;
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] for laughs in "Jungle Jam"; Tom and Jerry seem like they're going to be rescued from the cannibals cornering them on the beach; but as soon as their leader sees who they're rescuing, he immediately does a 180 with the rest of the navy, leaving Tom and Jerry to wing it and swim for their lives under the fire of the cannibals spears.
** In "Rough on Rats", two of the kittens save their third sibling from an evil rat this way.
** In "Along Came A Duck", the frog saves the duck he was messing around with from drowning, as his shenanigans got the duck tangled in seaweed underwater in the first place.
** Molly Moo Cow pulls this to save Robinson Cruesoe from a tribe of cannibals in "Molly Moo Cow and Robinson Cruesoe". She swims back to the island after Robin had scared her off, and grabs all of his rifles with her tail and uses them to scare off the cannibal tribe.
