But note that a Big Damn Heroes moment doesn't have to ''succeed''. They can [[TheBadGuyWins fail to save the day]], or even [[NiceJobBreakingItHero make things worse]].

If the heroes just finished a training arc and show off new powers, it's LookWhatICanDoNow.

If this is done in an anticlimactic way, then it's a DeusExMachina, and dooms it bad, of course. When done right, it is a sure-fire way to get a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment of Awesome]].

For instance, say that the poor DamselInDistress is looking her {{fate|WorseThanDeath}} dead in the face, and is [[YouCantFightFate resigned]] to it, because she knows that NothingCanSaveUsNow...and then, ''boom''! The heroes [[DynamicEntry kick down the door]] and proceed to [[CurbStompBattle stomp the bad guys into the ground]].

* Some Jews believe that in a coming Messiah. Christians and Muslims believe in the Second Coming of Jesus.

* Some Jews believe that in this of a coming Messiah. Christians and Muslims believe in the Second Coming of Jesus.Jesus.
** Muslims also believe in the Second Coming in way that invokes this trope; the big difference is that Jesus is just one of many Prophets, not the BigGood Himself. Instead of dying on the cross, he was spared and taken up to Heaven still alive as a miracle. In the last days, he is expected to return to Earth to help marshall the forces of Good and then die a mortal death in the final battle against Evil.
