If the heroes are part of a larger organization, the cavalry is usually led by ColonelMakepeace. Compare with the "BigDamnHeroes", where the heroes ''are'' the cavalry for someone else, "GondorCallsForAid", where the heroes put some thought into it and call in the cavalry ahead of time, and "AlwaysABiggerFish", where the cavalry are morally neutral and usually a monster of some kind. If the heroes have asked for the cavalry's help before but were turned down, it's ChangedMyMindKid. If the heroes are fighting in a MechaShow or happen to be [[AcePilot Ace Pilots]], then this may dovetail into IGotYouCovered.

** Season 3 has the Atlesian Army, which was meant to be this, but [[spoiler: Cinder takes control of the cyborgs and force them to attack civilians while Roman takes control of one airship and starts destroying the others. Ultimately, it was useless, if not, worsening the situation.]]

** In "Battle of the Bastards", [[spoiler: just when the Stark loyalists are down to a handful, and the Bolton army has them hopelessly cornered and outnumbered, literal horns call attention to the horizon, as the Knights of the Vale storm the battlefield, under Sansa and Littlefinger's command. They proceed to wipe out the entire Bolton army, thus allowing Jon Snow to make the final push into Winterfell, winning the battle against all odds]].

* ''Film/ABridgeTooFar''. The trope is lampshaded by General Horrocks when he briefs XXX Corps for Operation Market Garden. Unfortunately TheCavalryArrivesLate.

* In ''TransformersCybertron'', after an Omega Lock-powered Galvatron has creamed Optimus Prime's team, the armies of Jungle Planet, Velocitron, Earth, and Gigantion all arrive to help. Lugnutz even persuaded the Ancient Decepticons to led a hand, on the grounds that they don't want the universe to be destroyed.

* ''Literature/AlexRider'': In ''Skeleton Key'', Alex is about to be killed by TheDragon when the Russian navy storm the base. Although Alex still has to defeat TheDragon by himself, the raid provides the necessary distraction for him to do so, and disposes of the rest of Sarov's {{Mooks}}.

* The Cavalry is generally a very happy concept. See the movie version of ''TheMist'' for an example where it really, really isn't. (In the original novella [[spoiler: they never show up at all.]] Which, arguably, makes the ending of the novella happier. Or at least less [[DeusAngstMachina fucking depressing]].

*** Then there was the time Colonel Makepeace lead four SG teams to rescue [=SG-1=] from Hathor. It did not go so smoothly and they had to be rescued by MORE calvary, this time in the form of some rebel Jaffa, with air support provided by Bra'tac and General Hammond in a needle threader.



* In the finale of [[SpartacusBloodAndSand Spartacus: War of the Damned]], [[spoiler:Agron and Nasir arrive just in time to save Spartacus's life. Well, almost; he's already fatally wounded, but they prevent Crassus from delivering the coup de grace, and ensure he dies free.]]
