TheCaptain is forced to make a decision where there is no [[TakeAThirdOption third option]] and [[BigDamnHeroes the cavalry]] most certainly won't save the day. Thousands, or perhaps millions will die. The only other choice is to let the enemy overrun the area, potentially killing everyone or capturing vital resources. This form generally creates a HurtingHero, and in especially severe cases, a HeroicBSOD. He'll also often suffer from [[FlashbackNightmare Flashback Nightmares]].

TheBigBad has capabilities that no one has ever imagined. He has the ability to slaughter everyone, take over the world, or what have you, and the only thing required for success is simply a bit of time. It would take a miracle from TheHero to even come close to curbing the assault, let alone win. In some cases, the situation really is hopeless, and everyone has to simply sit back and watch in abject horror as events take place.

* ''WorldInConflict'': One mission has the player defending Fort Teller from a massive Soviet assault. [[spoiler:The Soviets believe the Fort had the American's anti-nuke program but the Americans know it's a bust. They have to stop the Soviets from taking the Fort and realizing this thus leading to millions of deaths from Nuclear strikes on major cities]]. The player is ultimately overwhelmed with an overwhelming force of Soviet tanks on the way. [[TheCaptain Colonel Sawyer]] is given authorization to nuke the area to stop the Soviets but Mark Bannon points out that if everyone retreats the Russians will know something is up. Bannon stays behind to hold the Soviets off and the player orders the strike. After doing so Sawyer utters this phrase knowing full well the necessity of it.

* Subverted in ''TheSimpsons'' when Ned's childhood psychologist hears about Ned's breakdown he says "May God have mercy on us all" as if it would likely result in a huge body count (which given his breakdown earlier, seemed quite possible). But shortly after, he finds out he left his shoes in the den and replies "[[SeriousBusiness May God have mercy on us all]]".
* A Magilla Gorilla cartoon had Magilla conscripted into the armed services. He and some other conscriptees are taking the military oath, and it ends with "So help me Hanna" (a reference to co-creator Bill Hanna).
