* Enforced by Stalin in WWII. The D-Day invasion happened as it did partially because Stalin was sick of having his military suffer the brunt of the fight against Germany, and demanded that the other Allies do something to take pressure off the Eastern Front.

* Parodied in the Music/BingCrosby / Creator/BobHope film ''[[Film/RoadTo Road to Rio]]'': while the two heroes are busy tangling the villainess and her two henchmen, an ally (Jerry Colonna) and a bunch of reinforcements ride furiously toward the heroes' location. But then suddenly, the heroes have won and the villains are hauled off to jail without The Cavalry ever arriving. Colonna reins in his horse mid-gallop and cheerfully comments to the camera: "Well, we [[TheCavalryArrivesLate never made it]]. But exciting, wasn't it!"

* Several such events take place in ''Radio/TheGoonShow''. For example, "Tales of Men's Shirts", which was set in occupied Europe during WorldWarII, ended with the American 5th Cavalry charging in out of nowhere.

* The famous WorldWarII battle with the Destroyer, USS ''Laffey'', which was being continually hit with kamikaze and conventional attacks while it was all alone doing radar picket duty, ''two'' cavalries came into play. When things were looking bad, four US fighters from the escort carrier ''Shamrock Bay'' arrived to shoot down as many as they could, then buzz the enemy planes when they ran out of ammo, until they were forced to disengage due to low fuel. When all seemed lost for the ''Laffey'', a second cavalry arrived in the form of a dozen US F4U Corsair fighters to take care of the rest of the enemy.

* In the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' games, it's common for people to suddenly break into the courtroom to save your behind just before the guilty verdict, sometimes with new testimony or evidence:
** In case 1 of ''Dual Destinies'', when Athena is having a HeroicBSOD and it looks like the trial is going to end in a premature guilty verdict, Phoenix Wright suddenly opens the courtroom's doors and shouts "OBJECTION!". Then he takes the lead defense attorney's role in the case, while Athena just assists him.
** Franziska von Karma brings you three pieces of evidence from Shelly de Killer in case 4 of the second game, one of which solves the huge moral dilemma Phoenix is struggling with.
** In case 2 of the third game, Desirée [=DeLite=] comes in with Luke Atmey's bag, which contains the stolen urn the whole trial revolves around.
** In case 3 of the third game, Detective Gumshoe brings you back a bottle that has been analyzed for fingerprints. The item itself is irrelevant for the discussion, but Phoenix uses it to catch the killer regardless by [[BluffingTheMurderer bluffing them]].
** A bailiff unintentionally helps Phoenix and Maya in case 3 of the sixth game when he bursts in and announces that Maya's fingerprints have been found on the weapon of a different murder, putting the current trial on hold.
** In the fan-made case ''VisualNovel/TheEmptyTurnabout'', Trucy arrives just in time to give Apollo an important piece of evidence that allows him to formally accuse [[spoiler:Mary Adair]] of the crime. This was foreshadowed earlier in the chapter, when Apollo called her and asked her to bring him something.

* When the [[Wrestling/ProWrestlingNOAH NOAH]] exodus initiated by Wrestling/MitsuharuMisawa departure seemed to have killed Wrestling/AllJapanProWrestling, Wrestling/GenichiroTenryu, a wrestler AJPW founder Giant Baba himself said would never work for the company again when he had lead a similar exodus years earlier to Super World Of Sports, returned, and he brought the roster from his own Wrestling Association R with him to keep All Japan afloat.

Compare ConvenientlyTimedAttackFromBehind, ComeWithMeIfYouWantToLive, where the cavalry show up to rescue the hero rather than to win the battle. Occasionally, the cavalry will show up ''[[TheCavalryArrivesLate after]]'' [[TheCavalryArrivesLate the heroes have managed to turn around their "hopeless" situation.]]
