Alice is about to do something by accident, or on purpose, that Bob and Charlie doesn't want her to do. Let's say "knocking over a priceless vase". If they use a LittleNo, they run the risk of Alice not hearing them and knocking it over. If they use a BigNo, they might accidentally startle Alice and [[SelfFulfillingProphecy actually cause her to knock it over]]. So what do they do? They go "Nononononononononononononononononono..." until either she stops, or [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption knocks it over, causing it to shatter into tiny pieces.]]

This is not usually effective, as half the time, Alice will ignore them. In {{Comedy}}, the instances in which it does work are generally a Set Up to have the vase get smashed anyway, just after they were relieved that it wasn't broken. In {{Action|Adventure Tropes}} and {{Drama}}, however, Alice is more inclined to listen to them, but may sometimes [[ForTheEvulz choose to do it anyway]].

Essentially, this is to the BigNo what the ClusterFBomb is to the AtomicFBomb.



* The Anti-Spiral from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' combines this with BigNo at one point in his HannibalLecture:
-->"We say: no no no no nono nononononononoNONONONONONO! NOT! ''AT!'' '''''ALL!'''''"

* ShiaLaBeouf does this in almost every movie he is in: ''{{Transformers}}'', ''{{Disturbia}}'', ''SurfsUp''. [[ See here]]

** Later, when they're attempting to re-test the Compact Compact myth, one of the semis they'd acquired for the test went off course:
---> '''Jamie:''' ''[singsong]'' It's gonna go into the ''waaaa''ter...\\
'''Adam:''' Oh! Nononononononononononono...\\
''[slow-rolling semi collides with barrier]''\\

* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'':
** Robin does this frequently. She keeps repeating no-no-no-no-no when she learns that her baby sister, now in her teens, plans to lose her virginity. To a jerk, but even if he was a super sweet young boy, she would have freaked out ''just because'', as it is her baby sister.

* In ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', Rodney once did this while high as a kite on [[PsychoSerum Wraith serum]].

[[folder:Role-Playing Games]]

** Humorous example: Zed Provhezor's response to seeing a bunch of grunts protecting just two scientists, unaware that those grunts and scientists were actually disguised Dino Attack agents infiltrating the XERRD Fortress.

[[folder:Video Games]]

** Wheatley gives one when the Announcer [[SarcasmBlind fails to get his sarcasm]].
** The defective turrets use this as [[OhCrap one of their many reactions to being tossed into the incinerator.]]
* In ''VideoGame/MystIIIExile'', this is WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Saavedro's MadnessMantra. It gets worse as the game progresses.

--> Pox: ''No, no, no, no, no, no, no,'' '''NO.''' Krypto, you ''incompetent buffoon.''

[[folder:Web Originals]]
* The [[ NONONO cat]].
* [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe]] uses one in ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'', when he realizes the "free car" he thinks he won was just [[ a ruse to get him to the Nostalgia Critic's house]].
-->'''Joe:''' ''[enraged] '''NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!''' [breaks down sobbing]'' No, no, ''nohohooooo...''

* When reviewing ''Caligula'', WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob reacts this way when he sees a flock of sheep onscreen with the title character. This is some fun meta humor for two reasons: he had reviewed ''Island of Death'' previously (which featured a man having sex with a goat in a similar setting), and ''Caligula'' is Brad Jones' favorite movie, so he's overreacting to a scene he's watched numerous times.
** He also does this at the end of his ''Death Nurse 2'' review, when he learns the actress who played Crazy Fat Ethel had also been in a few pornos and assumes the worst.
* Jim of the ''WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}}'' did this as a form of OhCrap when he was told that week's subject was the controversy of [[ "The Definition of Art Games"]].

* LetsPlay/BillyMC does one after falling off a truck in ''Series/FearFactory Unleashed''.
* ''WebVideo/TheAutobiographyOfJaneEyre'': Jane's answer to a question whether she sings in Q&A 2. She then says her voice is OK only for singing in showers or cars.
* Used for comedy in ''WebVideo/RedVsBlue''. Upon realizing that ''he'' is [[YouAlreadyChangedThePast actually the one responsible]] for a lot of the screwups in Blood Gulch, Church ends up doing this while continually attempting to correct his mistakes, [[spoiler: chasing after Sheila while Caboose is piloting in [[CallBack his rescue attempt from way back in Episode 8]]. This is after Church accidentally enables Sheila's ability to [[FriendlyFire target friendlies]].]] We are treated to a humorous scene of Church in a futile run across Blood Gulch in a desperate attempt to avert two seasons' worth of suffering and failure, going "No no no no no" the entire time.
* LetsPlay/{{Markiplier}} will often break into a panicky "No no no" when things go horribly wrong while playing a horror game, especially if it's a game built on dreadful anticipation like ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys''.
* WebVideo/JonTron freaked out in one video game when he saw a dog with a human face in ''VideoGame/MonsterParty''.
--> "Nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope SO MUCH NOPE."

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'': All together now: [[RunningGag "No, no, no, no, no, NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!" *crash*]]
