* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn]]'', [[spoiler:The Goddess of Order, Ashera, has turned all the world to stone and only your party and her chosen warriors sent to kill you are not. This isn't the Oh Crap moment though. That would be when Yune, the Goddess of Chaos goes to recruit more allies to your cause... And finds that Goldoa, land of the Dragons, and home to the single strongest and oldest living hero in the world, is completely empty...]] Tibarn says it best:
--> Tibarn: [[spoiler:If you're saying what I think you're saying, then we could have a very big problem. Lots of very big problems.]]

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpM1t1XyW1I Endless Nightmare]]" is this trope in musical form, playing whenever a unit is about to be killed; a very unpleasant proposition when FinalDeath is in effect. It also plays during ''Birthright'' chapter 26 when [[spoiler:Xander puts the Avatar on the ropes at the start of their DuelToTheDeath]], and during ''Conquest'' chapter 25 when [[spoiler:Ryoma, tricked into believing that the Avatar killed Hinoka, attacks them and challenges them to a DuelToTheDeath]].

* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' has plenty of these, both heroic and villainous.
** A villainous one is in ''Apollo Justice'' case four, when [[spoiler:Gavin gets told that the murder he all but just admitted to committing is being tried by a jury... that just saw his huge streak of gloating.]] Then there's ''Ace Attorney Investigations'' where Edgeworth gets one when [[spoiler:Calisto Yew pulls a gun on him after he does the usual "corner-the-murderer" thing.]]
** [[spoiler:Matt Engarde]] in the final case of the second game, when [[spoiler:he realizes he's a dead man either way]]. The look combined with their VillainousBreakdown is one of the best moments in the series. It was also funny before when [[spoiler: Shelly De Killer]] does an OhCrap through a radio. Complete with it falling apart multiple times and sweating oil.
** Not that it tops the others, but in the 5th case of the first game, [[spoiler:Damon Gant.]] He gloats for about 10 minutes about how horribly he's going to punish [[spoiler:Phoenix, Edgeworth, Lana, Ema, Gumshoe, and every single person who tried to turn the tables on him]] using a very critical item as evidence. A minute later, Phoenix reveals one contradiction in the evidence that results in an Oh Crap moment where [[spoiler:Gant]] literally SCREAMS at the very moment of realization that said evidence suddenly makes the situation even WORSE for him.
** Another spectacular one is at the very end of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'', when [[spoiler:Ga'ran is trying (and failing) to prove she has the spiritual powers needed to rule the land (she doesn't), and looks behind her to see her PraetorianGuard has just realized she's a fake, and thus an usurper, and are ''aiming her rifles at her, ready to execute her'' for her deception]]. As brief as it is in the middle of the breakdown, it's spectacular.

** In ''Tri'', the quest "Guts: It's What's For Dinner" has the player hunting Epioth for the titular Monster Guts, only to have the player run into the Lagiacrus; in addition, in ''3 Ultimate'' an early High Rank quest has the player find a Great Jaggi being crushed by a Deviljho. Both times, the Guild Sweetheart panics over the monsters' presence and tells you to get away from them immediately.[[note]]The Lagiacrus is indestructible even if you somehow survive against it for a long time, while the Deviljho is a magnitude more powerful than the High Rank monsters you'll be facing in the near future, so the reaction is pretty much justified by the characters, if not the player.[[/note]]

* [[spoiler:[[MagnificentBastard Iris]]]] gets one in [[{{Rosenkreuzstilette}} Rosenkreuzstilette Grollschwert]] when she realizes that [[LadyOfWar Grolla]] has overheard her plans to [[spoiler:have RKS fight against the [[UsefulNotes/HolyRomanEmpire Holy Empire]] ForTheEvulz]].

** Alphys gets one near the end of the Pacifist Route. Upon asking Papyrus why he gathered everyone up at New Home, he replies [[spoiler:"A tiny flower told me." Said tiny flower is Flowey, who Alphys is responsible for creating]], and she has just enough time to look appropriately horrified before the final boss shows up.

* In VideoGame/ThePunisher, during the final level in Ryker's Island, Punisher goes down to death row and find a guy named Ronnie the Ripper who killed a bunch of housewives in '91. Since Punisher isn't wearing his iconic skull, the man doesn't know who he is and asks to be set free in exchange for knowledge of weapons. Punisher does so, and the man asks who he is, and freaks out once Punisher says "Frank Castle". Punisher can then proceed to strap him in the electric chair to torture him for info and kill him if the player desires.

** This is so iconic, various recreations have been inserted into other games. ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' has this ''exactly'' happen again in the Coliseum [[spoiler: when Rita unlocks INDIGNATION when fighting Dhaos.]]
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' has Luke's reaction to [[spoiler: first, the fact he [[NiceJobBreakingItHero inadvertently helped]] the BigBad (his ParentalSubstitute) destroy an entire city, kicking off his evil plan.]] He does it again when TheReveal kicks in [[spoiler: that's he's the [[CloningBlues replica]] of the real Luke.]] Cue HeroicBSOD.
** Luke gets the BigBad back via [[spoiler: defeating him not once but ''twice'', the second time when the BigBad had access to the power of the resident ''god''...which wasn't enough to prevent Luke killing him.]]
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' has two in succession. First the BigBad's reaction [[spoiler: when he realizes he didn't activate a superweapon but, ''power down'' a barrier holding back an EldritchAbomination]]. Then there is [[TheStoic Yuri]]'s reaction to [[spoiler: being stabbed by Sodia and then falling off of Zaude and into the ocean, almost certainly to his death.]]
* A whammer of a one happens, in an understated way, in ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia''. Though Milla only shows a minor bit of shock at it, the fact TheStoic just freaked out over [[spoiler: Exodus slamming into an invisible barrier, which summons a bunch of freaking ''airships'' into a world that was more standard fantasy before]] says whole volumes at just how fucked the cast is now.
