* In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', [[spoiler:Groot is known for only saying one thing: "I am Groot". This makes it especially poignant when, mere moments before his HeroicSacrifice to save Rocket and his new friends, he declares: "''We''...are Groot."]]

** In ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'', Klavier is typically laid-back in court, even when Apollo pokes holes in his arguments, and enjoys using [[GratuitousForeignLanguage Gratuitous German]]. When Vera Misham's testimony indicates that [[spoiler:she was responsible for forging the page out of Magnifi's diary, which Klavier uncovered on a tip from his brother and got Phoenix disbarred]], Klavier is visibly shocked, and calls her "Ms. Misham" rather than "Fraulein" or other variants thereof.
*** Later, [[spoiler:when Kristoph is on the stand, Klavier becomes much more hardcore in his prosecuting, blocking most of Apollo's arguments. Trucy speculates that he wants to impress his big brother.]]

** After she and Edgeworth almost get shot by [[spoiler:Callisto Yew]], Franziska's confident front fades and she is visibly frightened.
** In case of characters like Edgeworth and Franziska, as well as any other aloof prosecutors, any moment during a trial when they suddenly act flustered or look dumbfounded (promptly changing to their most funny courtroom sprites) can be considered this. Sometimes lampshaded by Phoenix's inner monologue along the lines of ''"I wonder what happened to that calm composure he had earlier..."'' or ''"Edgeworth stuttering...? This is not like him at all"'' in 2-4, when Edgeworth was to announce that the next witness is [[spoiler: [[CourtroomAntic a qualified assassin who is willing to testify through a tranceiver]]]].
** The beginning of case 5-4 in ''Dual Destinies'' has both Apollo and Blackquill acting weird. Apollo is wearing an eyepatch for some reason, but insists that [[CatchPhrase he's fine]] and demands that the trial get started. [[spoiler:The victim in this case is Apollo's close childhood friend, and the defendant is an acquaintance who Apollo trusts wouldn't hurt a fly.]] Blackquill, who always wears shackles to court, usually breaks them when things start to get serious. In this case, he breaks them as soon as the trial begins. [[spoiler:He believes the defendant is the phantom, the one who committed the murder he took the fall for.]] The judge notices that there's something up with both of them.
** During Case 6-5 in ''Spirit of Justice'', an astute player will notice [[spoiler: Phoenix]] doesn't seem to be acting quite right. He won't even look at Apollo, the current player character, once he starts talking about the case, and he's acting unusually serious and evasive. [[spoiler: If you didn't figure out by then that something was up, Phoenix's desperation in court should be a clue. While Phoenix isn't a stranger to desperate floundering, the last time he was so desperate that he made wild claims, a kidnapped Maya's life was in danger]]. And that's just what happened this time, too.

* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'':
** A mild form happens in Chapter 3. Emil and Lalli sort of bond over their shared hatred of the bed belts in the night train that they are riding. Later in the night, Lalli hands Emil his belt and tangles himself in his own right before sudden movement of the train projects anyone not strapped to their bed (read: Emil) out of it.
** Sigrun may know when to back down from a fight, but she's also walked into troll nests and killed grosslings, considers a suicide mission to be a relaxing vacation, and through it all has been absolutely fearless. [[http://sssscomic.com/comic.php?page=483 So the first time she's shown to be downright terrified]], it's clear that the crew is in ''serious'' trouble.
** TurnedUpToEleven the first time we see ''[[TheStoic Lalli]]'' [[http://sssscomic.com/comic.php?page=627 look completely terrified]]. Remember, this is the guy who spends his nights scouting the troll-infested Silent World at night when the monsters are most active without batting an eyelash regressing to a state of panicked flailing.

** Dave Strider is normally an [[TheStoic unflappable]] {{Badass}}, so when he [[HeroicBSOD stares at his blood-stained hands for ten minutes]] [[spoiler: after throwing the corpse of an AlternateTimeline version of himself out of a window]], the audience knows that the CerebusSyndrome has kicked into high gear.

* A subtle but effective one from ''Webcomic/GirlGenius''; Airman Higgs is normally composed and nonchalant about everything, with an almost bored facial expression. Except when [[spoiler:Zola runs Zeetha through with a sword]]. [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20101018#.Vbza4dhQZ8c The next strip]] features a close up of his face, eyes open, and delivering a OneLiner with [[OohMeAccentsSlipping the slightest hint]] of the [[FunetikAksent Jäger accent]] (something he'd never shown before). This comes moments before he [[UnstoppableRage punches someone across the room]] so fast that [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall sequential art cannot capture it]]. The effect, whilst subtle, is rather frightening.

* Music/GiIvaSunner is a collaborative Website/YouTube channel that presents "high quality rips" of video game music that are actually BaitAndSwitch remixes (or other jokes), ostensibly ran by a single person who refutes any claims that his music is anything but ordinary. However, after an incident where a video that [[MoodWhiplash abruptly delved into genuinely terrifying subject matter]] was uploaded without consent from the rest of the group, one person dropped {{kayfabe}} entirely to apologize.

** In ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', when [[spoiler:theEnterprise is destroyed]], McCoy and Spock crash land on a nearby planet, and Spock is severely injured. As they walk off looking for help, Spock begins openly and honestly discussing his feelings becuase he believes he isn't going to make it and doesn't care about controlling his emotions anymore. The crowning moment is when Spock loudly and genuinely ''bursts out laughing'' at one of McCoy's jokes, and McCoy stares at him with mixed shock and horror.
