* ''Film/{{Aliens}}'' involves things steadily getting worse. But a particular standout is when having already had most of the squad killed and their dropship destroyed, Bishop discovers that the entire facility is about to suffer a nuclear explosion.

* ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'' has the ''Enterprise'' under attack by a battleship commanded by the new Praetor of the Romulan Empire, one which is more heavily armed and shielded and can fire while cloaked. As it becomes clear how much the ''Enterprise'' is outmatched, two more Romulan warbirds decloak. After Riker points out how much worse things are now, the commander of one of the warbirds hails the ''Enterprise''...and [[SubvertedTrope offers Picard her assistance]].

** And after fighting off said orcs + troll, another example occurs shortly after ''that''. Hearing more orcs on the way, the Fellowship flees, but eventually they end up completely surrounded by another, much larger horde. The two sides square off against one another, and just as it looks like they're about to fight...a loud roar is heard in the distance and the entire horde of orcs flees in terror. From [[EldritchAbomination a Balrog]].

* ''Film/TheLifeOfOharu''--''Jesus Christ''. Your boyfriend is executed? That's bad. Exiled from the imperial household? Bad. Sold as a glorified Sex Slave to a lord? Bad. Left to work as a high-class hooker after being separated from your son? Bad. Get married, only for your husband to be murdered? Pretty bad. Left to work as a low-class hooker? Pretty darn bad. Left as a homeless beggar when you're too old and unattractive for hooking? Wow, that is super bad.

** ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'': Luke has just been cornered by Darth Vader after having been stalked for some time, then he gets his arm severed painfully. Just to really kick him while he's down, the terrifying Sith lord in black then [[WhamLine reveals]] that [[LukeIAmYourFather he is Luke's father]], and tries to [[WeCanRuleTogether persuade his poor son to join him]].

* ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope'': Bad enough that the heroes find themselves trapped in the detention area with stormtroopers crowding through ''the only exit'' and have to resort to throwing themselves in to the garbage compactor, but then a horrible sewer monster starts swimming around them.

** ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'': The rebels have launched their attack on the half-finished and defenseless Death Star...except the DeflectorShields are still up. Not only that, but the Imperial Navy is lying in wait, pinning down the rebel fleet and keeping them from a HyperspeedEscape. How can this get worse?
--> '''Palpatine:''' Now witness the [[WaveMotionGun firepower]] of this ''fully-armed and operational battle station''! Fire at will, Commander!\\
''(The Death Star fires, and a rebel ship goes boom.)''\\
'''Lando:''' That blast came from the Death Star! ''[[OhCrap That thing's operational!]]''
