* Emmet in ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'' practically suffers a huge one when, even after everything that has happened to him, he breaks [[spoiler: after his plan to infiltrate Lord Business' tower to attach the Piece of Resistance to the Kragle fails and he witnesses (along with plenty of others) Vitruvius' death by LB's hands, who then decides to reveal there was actually no prophecy]]. It takes [[spoiler: the ghost of Vitruvius to snap him out of it to make his sacrifice to save everyone in the Think Tank, besides his moments in the 'real' world to motivate him to save his world]].

** Between Episodes VI (''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'') and VII (''Film/TheForceAwakens''), Luke seems to be suffering a huge one after his nephew, Kylo Ren,destroyed his new Jedi Order after he turned to the Dark Side of the Force and wiped out most, if not all, his other students. Blaming himself over what happened, Luke soon went into hiding, totally severing contact with his friends and relatives, seemingly resigned to be the last Jedi once more. Only time will tell if he snaps out of it during the events of Episode VIII: ''Film/TheLastJedi''.

*** Later in the film, Comicbook/{{Batman}} has one when he's about to kill Clark, only for Clark to [[spoiler: plead for the life of Martha]]. While Clark is talking about [[spoiler: his own mother, the fact that it's also the name of Bruce's mother (and indeed, Thomas Wayne's last word)]] triggers Bruce's PTSD and he freezes, just demanding to know why Clark is saying that name. Learning from Comicbook/LoisLane that Clark is talking about [[spoiler: his own mother, and that Clark has only been fighting him because [[Comicbook/LexLuthor Lex]] is holding her hostage]], snaps Bruce both out of his BSOD and UnstoppableRage, making him [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone realise]] how far he's [[FallenHero fallen]], and he agrees to [[spoiler: save Martha while Clark confronts Lex.]]
