The GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere is a video game-specific subtrope when the game has to provide ''some'' kind of challenge, even if the monster has no relation to the scene and the characters ignore it once the fight ends.



* The GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere seems to be a video game exclusive variant when the game has to provide ''some'' kind of challenge, even if the monster has no relation to the scene and the characters ignore it once the fight ends.

Added DiffLines:

* The Synchro Dimension Arc in ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' introduced the [[TournamentArc Friendship Cup]] as a means of allowing The Lancers to win that dimension's alliance against the [[BigBad Fusion Dimension]]. This resulted in new plot points being introduced (the Commons rebellion and Jean Michel Roget's use of mind controlling brain implants) and older plotpoints being concluded (Dennis being exposed as TheMole). Eventually, the Fusion Dimension invaded right as the tournament lost the ability to progress the plot by itself.

* In Creator/StephenKing's book on writing appropriately titled ''On Writing'', he mentions the use of this rule to overcome a serious case of writer's block when working on ''TheStand'', namely, by having [[spoiler: Harold and Nadine place a bomb and kill several of the main characters, including Nick Andros.]] And then [[spoiler: another bomb, this one nuclear, killing tons more characters.]]

* In the sequel to ''Film/TheExpendables'', our heroes are trapped under gunfire and the enemy has pulled out a tank. Suddenly, the enemy is quickly butchered by some unseen force. Considering the nature of the movie, this was likely a parody of this trope's place in action films. Oh, and it was '''''ChuckNorris'''''.

* Many sketches on ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' would end with a knight coming in and hitting someone on the head with a rubber chicken. Or a sixteen-ton weight would fall on somebody. Or [[StopHavingFunyGuy The Colonel]] would come in when things got too silly.
