This is often a goal of some wars. You break the enemy's morale, and you can achieve victory even without military success.

Related to HeroicBSOD and HeroicSafeMode, except the hero usually comes back from those. A WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds is often a character who crossed this line long ago. It can result in the character entering an AngstComa, being DumbStruck or suffering DeathByDespair (and subsequently crossing the ''MoralEventHorizon'' or ''JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope''). Often a result of WeUsedToBeFriends. This is often the final stage of the BreakTheCutie process. In a video game, often happens during a BleakLevel, and it may be relevant if the game has a MoraleMechanic.

The line that, once crossed, destroys any last remaining sense of hope. It could be for a cause, a person, a situation, or simple survival. A character has given up on it, and there is no going back (barring some miracle, which isn't that unlikely in fiction). It can lead soldiers to despair -- or even [[DrivenToSuicide suicide]], if they don't simply [[DeathByDespair lose the will to live]]. It can turn an IdealHero into an AntiHero or [[FaceHeelTurn an outright villain]], or even, in some cases, ''[[HeelFaceTurn vice versa]].'' It is a vital element of {{Tragedy}}.
