Can occur if one protagonist has been [[BatmanGambit luring the other one into a trap]], or if they just have some [[LookWhatICanDoNow shiny new skill]]. Or they may simply be a lower-level villain who's just had the very bad luck to be confronted with a hero impossibly out of his league. On occasion, [[ExplainExplainOhCrap they will be discussing the situation when they realize the full import of it.]] Related to ThisCannotBe, and the polar opposite of ObiWanMoment, when despite the bad situation someone still manages to look composed. May result in a HeroicBSOD for a heroic character, or even a VillainousBreakdown for a villainous character. Nine times out of ten, this will immediately follow [[WhatDoesThisButtonDo "What does this button do?"]]. The remaining tenth follow some other [[TemptingFate temptation of fate]]. Also a very common reaction when a villain, normally a ChessMaster, VillainWithGoodPublicity, or ManipulativeBastard, realizes they've just been the victim of an EngineeredPublicConfession. Some characters react with [[ThisIsGonnaSuck less despair and more apathy]]; others [[GonnaNeedMoreX look to their equipment]] for a solution. And for some, it is the [[HeroicBSOD crowning]] [[DarkestHour moment of]] [[DespairEventHorizon despair.]]

** From the first route, both [[spoiler: [[BigBad Kirei]] ]] and [[TheDragon Gilgamesh]] get a moment of this in their duels with Shirou and Saber respectively. [[spoiler: Kirei]] gets his when Shirou survives two curses containing [[TheCorruption ALL the evils of the world, ever; Past, Present and Future.]] (To be fair, Shirou did use [[spoiler: Avalon]] to survive the second one), before Shirou runs up and puches his chest out via an explosive magical dagger. Gilgamesh gets his when Saber uses [[spoiler: Avalon]] to block Ea, his [[EarthShatteringKaboom World Breaking]] WaveMotionSword, before she charges and cuts him in half with an Excaliblast. Gilgamesh gets quite a few of these, mostly when he realises that yes, there are people who can beat him.
