* In the final episode of ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'''s first campaign, [[spoiler:Grog draws the Void card from the Deck of Many Things, causing him to lose his soul]]. Since the whole party is Level 19 or 20 by this point, [[spoiler:the resulting venture into Pandemonium]] is treated (especially by the DM) as nothing more than an annoying side jaunt, and the session cuts to two weeks later [[with Grog's soul being restored]].

This trope used to be called "Missed Moment of Awesome". If you [[IThoughtItMeant want to find]] a trope for a time when a character's Awesome Moment fails to reach its expected level of epicness, try NegatedMomentOfAwesome. Stories or events that don't turn out as cool as you expected might belong in either TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot (a YMMV trope) or WhatCouldHaveBeen (a Trivia trope).

* In 2007, Bitter rivals Buffalo and Ottawa were meeting in the NHL playoffs. The game, went into overtime as both goalies were red hot that day. But oops! the game was on NBC, which still hadn't learned its lesson. Overtime was shunted to Versus, an upstart cable channel which few providers carried, in favor of an hour of ''pre-race'' coverage of The Preakness Stakes.
* 2010, July, a hot summer afternoon. England's first match in the World Cup. Expectations are high. All around the country fans gather in pubs, homes and at parties. Three minutes of tense action goes by. The crowd are on the edge of their seats, England has the ball and are soaring upfield as if unopposed. Sky TV cuts out. Two minutes later it cuts back in to the action. The score? 1-0.

** Season 13 ends just after Epsilon does a speech on how he's making an HeroicSacrifice to ensure the Reds and Blues will survive taking on an army. We never see said battle, which the characters assure in a later season that was quite awesome.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Team CFVY are a week late returning from their mission. There's not a scratch on any of them, and they turn out to be such phenomenal fighters they can fight side-by-side with the teachers. However, all Velvet reveals about the over-extended mission is that they're a week late due to being overrun by an incredible amount of Grimm... but it's okay because Yatsuhashi was looking out for her.

** There's been a large chunk of off screen fights in Volume 5. The most egregious one being the final battle with [[spoiler:Ruby, Weiss, and Blake vs. Emerald, Mercury, and Hazel, all of which happened off screen in favor of a WhatTheHellHero speech from Yang to Raven]].

* After the final battle of ''WebVideo/DerDisneygang'', a crossover between Disney and the characters from the ''WebVideo/HitlerRants'' phenomenon, Himmler casually tells Fegelein he never expected Cinderella to handle an {{AK47}} as well as she did. Unfortunately, she's never seen doing so.

* ''WhateleyUniverse:'' in the combat finals for the end of fall 2006 term at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]], the authors have showed us over a dozen combat finals ranging from awesome to hysterical to embarrassing. But every character keeps talking about Chaka's unbelievably awesome combat final against ''three'' superpowered opponents, in a disaster scenario with a tornado and earthquakes. It wasn't shown, and WordOfGod says it never will be.

* Whatever it was Bluey did with the giant robot in ''DragonTails'', it was awesome enough to make ''Enigma'' admit that it was pretty awesome.
