A dramatic montage-like sequence where a character has a vision of [[TrueCompanions all the people he cares about]], which enables him to win a battle or overcome some great hurdle. Related to HotBlooded and ThePowerOfFriendship, and very definitely related to HeroicResolve.

* In ''Anime/TigerMaskW'', when Tiger Mask is about to be on the receiving end of Red Death Mask's FinishingBlow ''second time in a row'', his manager Haruna calls out to him. This causes him to see all of the people that helped him thus far. This brought back his spirit and he managed to turn the tables on his opponent, winning the match.

* In ''DragonballZ'', as Goku [[DavidVersusGoliath fights a losing battle against Frieza,]] at one point he's forced underwater, and seems to drown and stop struggling. However, this trope comes into play as the faces of his friends flash before his eyes, giving him the motivation to break Frieza's grip and continue the fight.

* In ''RurouniKenshin'', Kenshin has a flash of his experiences (friends and enemies alike) just before learning his ultimate technique; Yahiko has a similar one later to reflect how much he'd unconsciously picked up just by witnessing the same set of events.
* Done in ''{{Gunnm}}'' and ''Gunnm: Last Order'' quite a few times.
* Happens to Vash in one of the last chapters of ''{{Trigun}} Maximum''. The [[spoiler:"I see dead people!"]] scene, which [[spoiler:might be a hallucination, or maybe he's really seeing his dead friends]].

* In the ''YuYuHakusho'' anime, Yusuke has the montage, but [[DownplayedTrope still loses his fight against Yomi]].

* Sesshomaru of ''InuYasha'', in the climax of ''Swords of an Honorable Ruler'' (third movie) Despite the fact that he denies "having anyone to protect". The manga had the theme since midway through the arc where Inu Yasha acquired Tessaiga, but didn't belabor it.
