* In ''Franchise/StarWars Film/ThePhantomMenace'', as Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan and Jar Jar travel in a sub through the watery core of Naboo, this happens twice in a row for a total of ''4'' progressively bigger fish. (Although the 2nd and 4th monsters are [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Sando_aqua_monster the same individual]].)
-->'''Qui-Gon:''' There's [[TropeNamers always a bigger fish.]]
** Fun fact: the 3rd/4th monster is not a fish at all, but a whale-like mammal.
* The heroes of ''Film/JurassicPark'' are about to get eaten by velociraptors, but the ''T. rex'' shows up, pulls a BigDamnHeroes moment and saves the day. How it appeared there without anyone noticing, or why the protagonists are now less terrified than they were earlier, remains completely unexplained (there was a barely noticeable hole in the wall it possibly came in through). [[WordOfGod According to the the producers]], they were struggling with the ending when they came to the realization that it was really the hero of the movie, and that was when everything fell into place.
* In ''Film/JurassicParkIII'', the heroes run from a ''Spinosaurus'' straight into the hunting grounds of a ''T.Rex''. The spinosaur [[spoiler:"rescues" the heroes [[TheWorfEffect by killing]] the ''T. rex'']], but later begins chasing them again.
* Following the running theme of the franchise, in ''Film/JurassicWorld'', the Indominus Rex proves too much for everything thrown at her [[spoiler: until the T-Rex knocks her through a fence to the edge of the lagoon and [[GiantSwimmer the mosasaur]] eats her]].

** Darkstar shows up in Volume Two, and is powerful enough to annihilate Mind Master and Starbolt in combat, without resting between the fights, something even Glorien couldn't pull off.

* Starting in the 1st century and continuing until the 5th, the UsefulNotes/RomanEmpire was almost constantly being invaded by Germanic tribes with names like the Vandals, the Goths and the Alans. It turned out that all of these barbarians, who inspired fear and loathing in the Roman mind, were in fact fleeing from ''their version'' of big, scary barbarians: the Huns.
* In the 1220s and 1230s, Hungary had a dire problem with a nomad incursion, the Cumans. Turned out the Cumans were themselves fleeing even bigger fish: ''the Mongols''.
