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]].
