** There's also the Great Eagles who come in to save the good guy's armies from the Nazgul and their flying beasts. *** In the movies this isn't made clear, but the Eagles aren't summoned in any way – they join the battle on their own will. So that's more TheCavalry than this trope.

** To clarify: Daine summoned it knowing that she wouldn't be able to send it away again - it's too powerful and - more importantly - too intelligent to be fully controlled by her wild magic. However, she took a calculated risk, keeping in mind that she had a pair of seriously overpowered magical allies, who were merely out of the game for a while. Sure enough, once they've recovered, they're able to 'convince' the Kraken to scoot out of their harbor so quickly that its enormous body actually drained the harbor briefly.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'': At the end of ''Dead Beat'', Harry is facing down a bunch of necromancers and an army of zombies. His solution? [[spoiler: Animate himself a tyrannosaurus zombie and stomp the bad guys flat of course!]] ** Bonus points because, even though there are strict rules forbidding the spirit of his solution, [[LoopholeAbuse they only apply when such spells are cast on humans]]. ** Later, in ''Cold Days'', Harry is in an even worse bind [[spoiler:as Queen Ladies Lily and Maeve are trying to unleash several {{Eldritch Abomination}}s from their prison. To finally stop them, he summons Queen Mab who stops them with one sentence.]]

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', it's implied that one of the reasons Knight-Commander Meredith lets Mage!Hawke roam free is because she recognises that someone who ''single-handedly'' managed to curb-stomp the Arishok is ''not'' to be trifled with and would be better used as a weapon to turn against Kirkwall's enemies. Unfortunately for her, [[HoistByTheirOwnPetard she]][[HoistByTheirOwnPetard ''becomes'']][[HoistByTheirOwnPetard Kirkwall's enemy in the end]] either by attempting to arrest Hawke for defending the Kirkwall mages or attempting to betray Hawke after successfully annulling the Circle.

* ''VideoGame/AgeOfMythology'': ** One of the Egyptian campaigns involves the Heroes trying to awaken "The Guardian" before the Big Bad's army can get there. ** ''The Titans'' expansion pack has three campaign levels where the main characters have to survive against a Titan long enough to summon the Guardian (who is stronger than a Titan), the Nidhogg (who the Titan cannot attack), or Gaia (a Titan with a powerful special attack against Kronos).
