A large number of {{mook}}s jump on the hero, pinning him down.

Usually it's a climactic battle scene. The hero is facing down dozens, no, hundreds, no, THOUSANDS of {{Mooks}}. At first, [[ConservationOfNinjutsu the hero's doing well]]. He's smiting them [[MookChivalry one after another]]. But then he begins to get tired, and [[UntouchableUntilTagged first one,]] then another, then another and another and another leap onto him, dragging the poor guy to the ground.

In order to qualify as a Dog Pile of Doom, the hero should be completely covered in mooks. Just couple of guys jumping on top of the hero is not enough to qualify. Have you ever dropped a piece of food on an anthill? It's something like that.

Differs from the [[TheGlomp glomp]], because the glomp is a sign of affection (even though the victim might not like it). The DogPileOfDoom is malicious, intended to kill or capture.

Technically, it doesn't have to be the hero at the bottom of the pile. A whole bunch of good guy civilian mooks jumping on the BigBad would also count as a DogPileOfDoom.
