Alphabetical order.
* ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion The End of Evangelion]]'' has possibly the most symbolism-overdosed example of this trope in history: just before Asuka makes a [[CrowningMomentofAwesome triumphant recovery]] from her AngstComa during the penultimate assault on NERV HQ, she has been placed inside her Eva for protection from assassination and hidden at the bottom of the Geofront's lake (with the Eva also lying in the fetal position for good measure). When painfully roused by enemy forces deploying depth charges against her, we are treated to a gradual-zoom in on her (notably [[RuleofSymbolism flipped upside down]]) for [[LeavetheCameraRunning a full minute]] while her chanting of "I don't want to die" grows from a faint whisper into an anguished scream. She has a serene, dreamlike vision of her mother, then ''violently explodes from the lake'' and returns to the HotBlooded ScreamingWarrior she used to be, [[UptoEleven and then some.]]
