* ''ShadowHearts Covenant'' shows why it's important to save the SaveTheWorld element for last. Being told that the end boss is going to destroy the world loses a lot of kick when you've already saved the world twice; even once before the halfway point of the game.

While villains love to TakeOverTheWorld or cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, the {{heroes}} are most likely motivated by the polar opposite, [[TitleDrop Saving The World]]. A fairly simple plot/motivation related to ForGreatJustice and what not, this trope is pretty broad and ''very'' common for many stories not focused on character interaction only.

->'''Brain:''' Come, Pinky, we must prepare for tonight.
->'''Pinky:''' Oh, right, taking over the world, and all...
->'''Brain:''' No, Pinky -- tonight, we must ''save'' the world!
->'''Pinky:''' Egad, Brain -- ''save'' the world?!
->'''Brain:''' YES! So it is available to take over ''tomorrow'' night.
