** In ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'', Vimes convinces his arch-rival Lord Rust that he's some sort of {{badass}} by handling hot coals (emulating a story about Film/{{Lawrence of Arabia}}). Then he waits until Rust leaves to clutch his hand in pain. ("Are you quite sure he can't see me?" "Not unless he can see through camels, sir.")

A character, despite long odds [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome does something awesomely cool]]. Either a HeroicSecondWind that gets the bad guy to leave or give up without a fight, or maybe he jumps into the fray and beats TheDragon down with his bare hands.

But, after he's sure the bad guys have left or been taken down, he promptly collapses, whether from the stress of dealing with someone who completely terrified him, or the guy he just talked down could have broken him in half without a sweat, or because [[PowerStrainBlackout he overtaxed his power too much]], or just because he got hurt too badly in the fight. If it was really bad, [[LogicalExtreme they may even]] [[YouAreAlreadyDead die]], making this a HeroicSacrifice (albeit an [[DyingMomentOfAwesome awesome]] one). Less serious injuries may start the action back up with an AfterActionHealingDrama.

* Happens occasionally to Kazuma in ''LightNovel/KazeNoStigma'', though he's too BadAss to pass out entirely, he tends to spend a while lying flat on the floor. Usually making snarky comments. Or possibly looking up skirts. It's explained that his [[SuperMode 'Contractor' state]] is rather exhausting to use, leaving him severely weakened after it runs out, thus handily explaining why he doesn't use it all the time.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', this is regular feature of post-battle scenes. It once goes horribly wrong for Saizo and the others when after defeating Hanzo and Okatsu, UsefulNotes/DateMasamune shows up and effortlessly kidnaps Isanami while everyone's too weak to stand.

*** From a game mechanics standpoint, the extra HP the Barbarian gets during a rage are distinct from actual "temporary HP". Temporary HP are lost first, so if the character has any left when they go away, he's no worse off than before he got them. The extra HP from a Barbarian's rage come off the bottom, so as early as level 6 a Barbarian could actually drop dead from calming down.

* Daisuke in ''DNAngel'' has a moment where he stops a fight with Krad by using ThePowerOfFriendship to turn him back into Satoshi. After the battle he leans against a rock wall and admits sheepishly that he couldn't stand otherwise, before promptly collapsing.
