* An implied one in ''StarcraftII'': When Mengsk's flagship comes nearby, Raynor and Findlay start a boarding action, with lots of explosions and MoreDakka. However, it's not Mengsk but his son waiting for them, implying they only got that far [[ILetYouWin because he wanted them to.]]

* The Spanish GameShow ''Series/ElGranJuegoDeLaOca (The Great Game of the Goose)'' featured a space on its board that was home to a deranged Barber named Flequi. Any contestant that landed here had to answer [[RuleOfThree three questions correctly]] to avoid getting a TraumaticHaircut. The first two were generally very easy, while the third was [[UnwinnableByDesign practically impossible]]. One contestant's third question was to guess exactly how many millimeters a woman in the 18th century let her hair grow over the course of 52 years without cutting it. The contestant responded "3 1/2 meters" (3,500 mm), while the actual answer was 3,'''''650''''' mm. They actually started to go to the judge until [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ay5C60BHcWI&t=02m53s Flequi took matters into his own hands.]]

* In ''Film/HotFuzz'', Sgt. Angel vaults four garden fences to catch up to a thief. The impressed PC Butterman attempts to do the same as a rock tune starts up...only for him to fall straight through the first one.

* At the very end of the very last episode of ''Zan SayonaraZetsubouSensei'', the overall series's eponymous song and [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome undoubtedly most awesome track]] begins to play... and then is abruptly cut off in favour of yet another [[RunningGag obnoxious drawing game]].

* In ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' we have the battle between [[TheLancer Rei]] and [[BigBad Raoh]]. After Raoh handed his ass to him without bothering to dismount his horse or even ''use his own hands'' (Raoh punched him repeatly using his BattleAura), Rei realizes the best he could hope for was to [[TakingYouWithMe launch an all-out attack that would kill Raoh at the price of exposing himself and get killed]], and we see his DyingMomentOfAwesome... [[ImagineSpot Except it was Raoh imagining playing it in his mind]] to [[AwesomenessByAnalysis determinate the best way to counter him]], before throwing his BadassCape in his face as a distraction and [[FingerPokeOfDoom hitting him with his index finger, dooming him to three days of agony before the release of death]]. Also counts as Crowning Moment Of Awesome for Raoh for doing all this with barely an effort.

* This happens a few times in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. Though mind you, Interrupted Moments of Awesome for the heroes usually A) lead to even GREATER Crowning Moments of Awesome shortly thereafter, and B) are Crowning Moments of Awesome in their own right ''for the villains''.

* ''Film/{{Apollo 13}}'': In both RealLife and the movie, the mission was going to be flight commander Jim Lovell's Crowning Moment Of Awesome. He was planning on retiring from NASA after this mission, and what better way to do it than by walking on the moon, after previously flying to it on Apollo 8. Unfortunately, an explosion in mid-flight meant having to abort the moon landing, thereby making Lovell the only astronaut to travel to the moon twice without actually landing.
** The mission still ''was'' a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for both the crew and Mission Control. Anybody can look like a hero when everything goes as planned; pulling it out of the fire when everything goes ''wrong'' is what makes you awesome. It still would have stung. Lovell actually got closer to the moon on his first trip (60 miles as opposed to about 140).

During the episode "Like A Virgin," Dean is told that in order to pull the Sword of Brunswick out of its stone, it needs to be pulled by a brave knight willing to slay the dragon. He steps up to the stone, the music swells dramatically... and he slips and falls on his ass. Twice. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny So he blows up the stone.]] [[IdiotHero Badly.]]

* Blue mana spells in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' are the embodiment of Negated Moment Of Awesome.

[[AttackReflector Cast]] [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=290288 Redirect]] on the spell and it's [[AttackBackfire flying right back into their face.]] Blue color decks have the highest tendency to result in flipped tables.

* ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}''. How many times has anyone set up a nice tall one-column shaft for a Tetris, only to plug up the shaft with another piece or worse, the I-piece itself? Granted, it's possible to recover out of this, but if you're nearly topped out and barely able to place pieces, you pretty much just turned an AwesomeMoment into YetAnotherStupidDeath.

* An often unnoticed one in the ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' finale, when Superman is about to take down Darkseid and Darkseid unleashes the [[AgonyBeam Agony Matrix]] on him to incapacitate him. Of course, this is eclipsed by Superman's definitive Crowning Moment Of Awesome [[WorldOfCardboardSpeech immediately before this]], and [[JustifiedTrope no matter how big the adult fanbase is, you can't have Superman kill someone on a kid's show]].

* On June 2, 2010, Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga was one out away from what would've been the 21st perfect game (no runs, no walks, no errors) in Major League Baseball history, against the Cleveland Indians. What should have been the 27th and final out was ruled a hit, when the first base umpire ruled Jason Donald beat the throw to first base. Replays clearly showed Donald had been thrown out. Galarraga finished with a one-hit shutout win.

* Parodied ([[RuleOfFunny like everything else]]) in ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness''. A group of SuperSentai parodies called the Prism Rangers show up to ruin the characters' day. They begin to transform into their awesome super form to curb stomp the heroes...and then Etna interrupts by shooting two of them in the kneecaps. A CurbStompBattle ''does'' occur, but now it's the other way around, as the Rangers are laughably weak. This leads to a series wide RunningGag, with the Prism Rangers showing up every game and being treated [[ButtMonkey like total losers]].

** He suffered another one previously: the famous "[[AtopAMountainOfCorpses sexy shoeless god of war]]" scene. Problem is, by D&D 3.5 rules, if you can kill enemies so easily that you can build a mountain out of them, ''you don't get anything for it''.
