If the author knows what they're doing, they'll take pains to point out why the heroes (or villains) cannot or will not take that step. Stopping the DeusExMachina can be simple or complex, and may deal with [[DoesntWorkOnWood physical limitations]] or mental, emotional, or moral ones (even ''technically'' laudable ones, such as "[[ThouShaltNotKill refuses to take a life]]" -- though in practice that's [[TheFarmerAndTheViper not such a good thing]] [[UngratefulBastard all the time]]).
