It's that moment in the story where all the comedic personalities or secondary characters- the eccentric teachers, the paternal family friends, even the protagonist's own parents- abruptly all draw their weapons, challenge the enemy, and show the hero (and the reader) exactly why they should respect their elders. A great example of this is the latter portions of the last two or so Harry Potter books.
