* Young [[FootyRules football]] star Aizawa Suguru ''starts off the opening chapter'' of the manga ''Manga/AreaNoKishi'' by making what the announcers describe as a "magical pass" in the final moments of an international youth football game against Brazil. His teammates shot is easily blocked by the Brazilian goal-keeper, however since the deflected ball ''just so happens'' to land at Suguru's feet, he is able to make the last second shot that ends the game in a tie between Japan and the reigning champions.

* In 2013, the Alabama Crimson Tide were ranked #1 in the nation heading into their traditional rivalry game against Auburn, the Iron Bowl. However, this time around, Auburn was ranked #4, and for the first time in Iron Bowl history, the winner of the game would clinch the SEC's west division and a berth in the SEC championship game. Following an Auburn drive that scored a touchdown, tying the game at 28 with only 34 seconds left, Bama took over in their territory. Auburn stopped them from scoring and even forced a player out of bounds just as time expired, which stopped the clock. The play was reviewed, and one second was put back on the clock. Alabama attempted a 57-yard field goal. If it missed, the game would just go to overtime. Their starter had missed three earlier that game, so they put in the backup. He kicked the ball well, but it fell short, where Auburn returner Chris Davis waited. Davis then [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vR7s2m5Z5GA returned it all the way back to Alabama's end zone for a touchdown]] to win the game 3428, in what would later be known as the "Kick Six".

* In 2013, the Iron Bowl -- a traditional rivalry game between the Alabama Crimson Tide were ranked #1 and Auburn Tigers -- had major post-season implications. Alabama had entered the season as two-time national champions, while Auburn was coming off an embarrassing 3-9 season with no wins against SEC opponents (including a 49-0 CurbStompBattle in the nation heading into Iron Bowl). Alabama was in their traditional rivalry form throughout the season, but Auburn was pulling off a series of major comeback wins, including their game against Auburn, Georgia (where an Auburn Hail Mary was tipped by Georgia defensemen to score a key late-game touchdown). Going into the Iron Bowl. However, this time around, Auburn was Bowl, the two teams were ranked #4, at #1 and #4 in the nation respectively; for the first time in Iron Bowl history, ever, the winner of the game would clinch the SEC's west division and a berth in advance to the SEC championship game.conference championship.

* On Hell's Kitchen they usually have some kind of preliminary competition between the two teams. The winners are rewarded, the losers are punished. Many of these contests are extremely subjective and they usually go back and forth until they end with a one point victory.

* On July 27, 2017, Toronto Blue Jays batter Steve Pearce pulled off a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the 10th to beat the Oakland Athletics 8-4. However, just three days later against the Angels, Pearce proceeded to do so ''again'' in the 9th for an 11-10 victory (also notably an "ultimate" grand slam, since it eliminated the entire deficit). He is only one of three batters in MLB history to have hit two walk-off grand slams in a single season.

* Happened at the 2015 Michigan State vs. Michigan football game. Michigan was ahead 2321 when they were set to punt the ball away with 10 seconds left on 4th and 2. Except the snap was fumbled and the ball went straight to MSU's Jalen Watts-Jackson, who ran it back for the game-winning touchdown as time expired. Not a bad way to beat your in-state rival for the 7th time in 8 years. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBlgN85wB6U Here it is.]]

* Happened not once, but arguably twice in the 1970 WorldCup semi-final between Germany and Italy. Italy led 1-0 for all of regular time, until Germany equalized in the 90th minute, leading to extra time and a total of 5 goals, the final, decisive goal happening in the 111th minute. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome CMoA]] doesn't begin to describe this match.

* The 1995/1996 season of the Danish Superliga, saw Brøndby IF (''the'' top dog of the league) and Aarhus GF (fielding perhaps their best squad of the past 25 years) locked in a hard-fought duel for the title. In round 30 (of 33) the two faced each other on Aarhus' homefield, Brøndby leading the table by 1 point. In the dying moments of the first half Peter Møller pulled Brøndby ahead 0-1. After 75 minutes, however, Aarhus had pulled together an extraordinary comeback to lead 3-1. A late goal brought Brøndby some hope, and with about 2 minutes to go, Brøndby got a corner kick. On a whim, Brøndby's goalie, Mogens Krogh, decided to move into Aarhus' penalty area [[DeseprationAttack in a desperate attempt to disrupt Aarhus' defence]] (Krogh later admitted he didn't had the approval of coach Skovdahl to make this move). In a frantic play, Krogh managed to score the equalizer with 90 seconds to go. The match ended 3-3. At the season end, Brøndby secured the title with 67 points against Aarhus' 66.
