* TransformersCybertron Starscream's AwesomeMomentOfCrowning (and subsequent three-to-five-episode-long-depending-how-you-count battle scene) happens first in, then over one.
* In YuGiOhZEXAL, an episode features Shark dueling against his nemesis IV in the "Magma Field". During their duel, as both exchanged fierce blow after the other, [[ManipulativeBastard Tron]], IV's father, continuously taunted his son by saying Shark was a better duelist than he (the champion of Asia) was and pointing out how reckless he always acted. [[WellDoneSonGuy IV]] determinedly tried proving him wrong, but when Tron made it perfectly clear for everyone watching that IV was nothing more than a mere pawn in his plan, IV's expression showed perfectly well how his heart was shattered, cue a Volcano erupting at this exact time.

** In the sequel series, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', there's an example of this in Book 3. The [[spoiler: Northern Air Temple]] is built on top of a regular mountain, but a member of the [[BombThrowingAnarchists Red Lotus]], Ghazan, is a Lavabender. He essentially turns the entire mountain into an active volcano during their fight with Korra and the crew, which is not only very dangerous for the heroes, but it ends up destroying [[spoiler:the temple]] in true SceneryGorn fashion.
