Added DiffLines:

* A stage in ''VideoGame/{{Mechassault}}'' has the player infiltrating a base in a suit of PowerArmor. About halfway through the stage, you find yourself getting chased by a light mech. At the end of the stage, you make you way into a Mech hangar, and find an ''Atlas'' in the back. Needless to say, the following stage is ''extremely'' cathartic.

Added DiffLines:

** Wizzro's betrayal of Cia in ''HyruleWarriors''. Even though he's still badly wounded from his previous battle against Link and co., [[BigBad Cia]] immediately tosses him into battle against [[ManEatingPlant the Manhandla]], whereupon he quite gleefully betrays her for [[BiggerBad Ganondorf]]. Averted with Volga, who just decides that she's no longer worthy of his service.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', after [[spoiler: Wheatley gets plugged into GLaDOS's body]]. He directs this attitude towards Glados, who had spent a few seconds calling him an idiot, and ''you'', who had made all this possible for him in the first place and been with him every step of the way; he claims you've been bossing him around constantly when the opposite is true.

* Admit it, you've laughed when you ended a poor mook's existence with the Vanguard Rush from VideoGame/MassEffect2. And you've also probably got a good giggle realizing you're the only one who can do it. And then "Lair of the Shadow Broker" rolled around, and you met [[spoiler: [[{{Badass}} Tela Vasir]]]]. Not so much [[TheJoysOfTorturingMooks funny]] as [[BestBossEver just fun.]]

* Anytime in ''DawnOfWar: Dark Crusade'', when the Imperial Guard manages to deploy a Baneblade. IG is a RedshirtArmy, whose viable tactis boil down to "have more soldiers than the enemy has bullets" and the Baneblade is a ''huge'' investment in time and resources. However, the eleven-cannoned behemoth is nearly capable of clearing maps on its own, and when it rolls out... to quote the game:

** Rotom-S (its Fan Forme) is an Electric/Flying type...but still has the ability Levitate (immunity to Ground, which Flying naturally has). Come Gen 6, we get Inverse Battles, where Flying is now ''weak'' to Ground...but not Rotom-S, since immunity-granting abilities still function as advertised.
