Roy tries one thing after another, desperately trying to [[spoiler:stop the fall or at least reduce fall damage]], only to run out of options. Then he realizes [[spoiler:he has a talisman that can summon an ally who can fly]]. Only his realization comes just a ''little'' too late.

* ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt'' does this with a series of spots during the assault on the ''White Diamond Crisis'' -- after being lured deep enough into the ship that [[spoiler: Gabriel is able to Tone the majority of the players into stupefied submission]], it's up to the remaining unaffected players to save the day. Jigsaw and Daisy manage to recover most of the others, but Daisy's 'snapbacks' backfire, [[spoiler: first on Cypress ([[RuleOfPool who dives into a pool full of aggressive nanotech]])]], and then after that problem gets solved, [[spoiler: it happens again on Jason, who mortally wounds her]]! After all of this, [[spoiler: GEISHA figures out a way to save them... but [[YouAreTooLate Gabriel's forces arrive just in time to capture the remaining vulnerable players before they can be ferried back]]]]. OUCH.

* Webcomic/SluggyFreelance: Riff learns [[spoiler:Zoë]] is on life support; he's not too hopeful, but the audience is. After two years, he finds her - braindead, alongside a recording of his alternate self explaining that he's been here before, and he needs to let go. ''Then'' he poisons all his comrades to go back in time to save her, only to be told by the same alternate Riff that the rules of time travel are such that he'll just go back to the timeline in which she's dead. [[spoiler: Then subverted when it turns out he was aware of that, and his story of preventing her death was cover for his method of ''really'' saving her. He went back to that time to infect her with 4U City medical nanites before she came to the city, so they'd have a mental template to restore her to and she wouldn't be a vegetable. It works.]]

* In ''Webcomic/DraculaRulerOfTheNight'', the hunters find out that Dracula is within Carfax Abbey and go raid it, coming upon Minerva Westenra, Lucy's mother, in the process. Having apparently been kidnapped from an out of town errand she was on and unharmed, if not shaken by all the "fanged people". Soon the hunters find Dracula, only to be beset by both him, his vampire brides and a newly turned Lucy who's more then gleefully willing to attack them. Ultimately they're forced to run as the daylight dwindles and they try to go out through the basement of the building while barring the door they came in through to keep the vampires at bay. Harker assures Minerva they'll protect her [[spoiler: only to catch a glimpse off a metal surface and see her reflection fading till only her clothes are all that's floating in them.]]
--> '''Minerva''': What the matter dear, you look like you've seen a ghost? [[spoiler: ''(She smiles and laughs, shuddering as her ears become [[PointyEars pointed]] and fangs form in her mouth)'') Or close to it hmm?]]
