** Near the end of ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', Shepard can order the Fifth Fleet to rescue the Council aboard the ''Destiny Ascension''.

** Near the end of ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', Shepard can order the Fifth Fleet to rescue the Council aboard the ''Destiny Ascension''. its a Gunship Rescue for the Citadel regardless, but the ''Destiny Ascension'' is only saved if you feel like it.


Added DiffLines:

*** On Tuchunka, you are prevented from taking any side routes, and are forced to charge ''straight at'' a Reaper. The Reaper charges its weapon (fully capable of incinerating) you...and then the Turian fighter squadron (which most players probably forgot about) flies in and starts shooting it. They are far too weak to destroy it, but they do distract it and save you.

** Also used in ''World at War'' in the mission "Black Cats". The titular "Black Cat" is a PBY Catalina flying boat that's landed on the water to pick up survivors of a sunken destroyer. Your character is trying to keep attacking Zeroes off the plane while it tries to get airborne, but the gun turrets are scripted to run out of ammunition as one final wave of enemy planes is inbound. At the last possible second, a squadron of Navy Corsairs show up and clear a path for your escape.

* ''Film/TearsOfTheSun'' ends when Creator/BruceWillis' team of Navy SEAL badasses, having just barely survived a battle with a pursuing enemy army, end up chased into a grassy field. Just when all hope seems lost for them and the refugees they have been escorting, a flight of F/A-18 Hornets comes screaming in and [[KillItWithFire liberally applies napalm]] amongst the enemy ranks.

The timing of it also deserves special mention, the [=SEALs=] call in air support almost as soon as the battle starts, and the jets ''still'' only arrive a the last second.

* During the American Civil War, at the Battle of Hampton, ironclad warships were relatively new. On the first day of the Battle of Hampton Roads, the Confederacy revealed their shiny new metal behemoth, the CSS ''Virginia'' (a rebuilt captured steam frigate, the former USS ''Merrimack''), which almost single handedly mopped the floor with two of the wooden ships that the Union Navy was using. On the second day of the battle, the ''Virginia'' came back to the fight to finish off the third Union ship, the USS ''Minnesota''. However, the Union had brought in their own ironclad, the USS ''Monitor'', into a defensive position in front of the ''Minnesota''. Thus began the very first battle between metal warships... Which resulted in a stalemate as both ships were [NighInvulnerability nigh invulnerable]] compared to their firepower.

Which resulted in a stalemate as both ships were literally MadeOfIron, and neither had sufficient firepower to do significant damage.
