[-[[caption-width-right:349:''So...''how's that [[ElementalRockPaperScissors 2x effectiveness]] working out for you?[[note]][[http://razorcat.deviantart.com/art/Wailord-used-BODY-SLAM-106280391 Image used with permission by razorcat]][[/note]]]]-]

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': "Hey what's the green midget in a trench coat? Tonberry huh? Whatever he's toast!". Any one whose played ''Final Fantasy'' knows how that will end.
* ''{{Dishonored}}'': Corvo might be TheQuietOne but his reaction to seeing the Outsider's mark on his hand says volumes.
** Performing an assassination on a main target leads to a slow-mo shot of Corvo grabbing them, them turning around, their Oh Crap face, and their death by sword through the chest. And it's unique to each target.
* Angels in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'' have a shocked "NO WAY!" reaction when you kill them, which rather nicely compliments the smug look on their faces prior to you kicking their ass. Bonus points for the "NO WAY!" being uttered in a shocked tone that indicates getting the crap beaten out of them was something they thought impossible.
* ''DeadRising 2 Off The Record'' features Sandbox Mode where the game's world is stuck in a 3-4 day cycle, got different challenges to keep the player entertained ([[AndYourRewardIsClothes or to get Protoman's outfit]]), one may find the challenge "Rooftop Massacre Pt. 2" after completing the first challenge and reaching a certain amount of kills. By the way did you notice why no gas-zombies spawn in Sandbox Mode? [[spoiler: They do only spawn during the challenge. [[FromBadToWorse They DO NOT despawn once it's over.]] Good luck getting of the roof...]]
** During the game proper, Frank actually utters the words [[spoiler:after trying to get Chuck Greene's attention... and accidentally grabbing "Katey" by the leg. After the drunken and despondent Chuck had just made it clear how protective he was of her.]]
* Right after the final fight in ''VideoGame/{{BioShock 2}}'' [[spoiler:you run down a corridor right behind Eleanor to get to the escape sub before the charges are detonated that will hurl the entire complex into a deep sea trench. Then at the last corner the game changes to dramatic slow motion as Eleanor suddenly stops and it takes a moment for you to get around the corner to see the door blocked by lots of [[IncrediblyObviousBomb red crates and two gray boxes with blinking lights]].]]
* SeriousSam is trapped in a tiny 10 foot by 10 foot cage while being harassed by headless zombies that file in one at a time. [[TemptingFate "Come on, is that the only thing you ugly freaks got?"]] Cue the [[DemonicSpiders giant, scythe-armed, skeletal-horse creatures]]. "Uh-oh."
** A similar scene occurs earlier in the game when you run into your first Beheaded Kamikaze. After gunning it down, Sam says "AAAAAAAAHHHH yourself!" Cue the sound of ''many'' Beheaded Kamikazes screaming in unison. "Uh-oh."
** The iconic first Kamikaze encounter is paid homage to in ''Serious Sam 3: BFE'' in the first level, Summer in Cairo. A single Kamikaze appears from the dry grass in front of the museum surroundings where the helicopter ruins are located. Sam blows it up and remarks "AAAAAAHHH, put a sock in it!". Then comes a marching band of Kamikazes. "Uh-oh."
** The final boss of the first game causes this reaction to the ExpositionFairy, who advises you to "Run and pray!"
* Another example is the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nku5riEKsTE GameStop ad]] for ''New Super Mario Bros.'' as the bunny, an {{Expy}} Mario, takes advantage of his power-up, for a short while. Then it wears off and the bunny freaks out.
* Every falling scene in the {{Mario and Luigi}} series. The reactions on the Bros.'s faces are just priceless in all of them.
** Also, every time Mario and Luigi come across a boss. Luigi just freaks out instantly.
* The discovery of Delta Halo in ''{{Halo}} 2''. The look (and reaction) of Johnson says it all.
** In the first cutscene of ''{{Halo}}'s'' "Assault on the Control Room" level ("I Would Have Been Your Daddy..."), a Grunt guard, who has been checking up on his napping buddies, runs away shrieking as Foehammer's Pelican suddenly emerges from the control room air shaft.
** "What is it, more Brutes?" "Worse."
** "OH GOD, THEY WERE ALL INFECTED!"
* In PaperMario, starting at Chapter 4 and up, there are numerous occasions where {{Mooks}} will absolutely freak out upon seeing you while they guard an important location, some of which ''yell out up front'' that they don't stand a chance.
* PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor had even more of these than its predecessor.
** There was quite the panic during the initial encounters with Cortez's ZergRush of Blue Bubbles.
** Hordes of skeletons and {{Descending Ceiling}}s [[SpikesOfDoom with spikes]], anyone?
* In the ''Franchise/PrinceOfPersia'' series, enemies generally have some variant of this expression in the last moments of the game before the ResetButton is pressed.
* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration 2''. Mission 32. One of the best ideas on that mission is to '''''make absolutely sure you do not trigger the reinforcements on the enemy phase'''''. The fact that the reinforcements contain ''five bosses'' amongst them AND everyone takes damage during the cutscene makes that good advice to take. There's even more OhCrap for everyone in the closing moments of the chapter, to boot.
* Likewise, in Mission 30 of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsW'': Leaving the Junk Guild ship too far behind is a bad thing, which you find out when, halfway during the battle, a large [[GundamSEED ZAFT]] force shows up behind you. A dozen [=GINNs=] with bazookas are not good for the health of a simple salvage ship.
* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'''s Subspace Emissary, characters occasionally do this (without talking). King Dedede in particular gets a good "oh shit" look when Kirby shows up [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMmSAqgHb0Y to stop him]].
** And in the Mega Man reveal trailer for ''Super Smash Bros. 4'', Mario gets a PRICELESS one when he dodges Mega Man's flying metal blades at the last possible second.
* Enemy {{Mooks}} in ''MetalSlug'' tend to react like this when [[EnemyChatter they're talking to each other]] and then see [[OneManArmy you]].
* That's one of the possible reactions of a Combine sniper in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'', after you toss a grenade in his hideout. Also, in Episode 2, you have to defend a room with 4 entrance tunnels, each has 3 warning lights that go off when antlions are coming through a tunnel to attack, indicating the amount by the number of lights. For most of the fight, you have to move your two auto turrets and the two rebels assisting you to a new tunnel to defend. Then your Vortigaunt allies arrive and ''on all four tunnels all three lights light up''. The SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic of the scene turns it into one of the greatest moments in the whole game series.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', Wheatley gets one [[spoiler:right before [=GLaDOS=] zings him into spaaace. Literally.]]
** The defective turrets have a ''lot'' of quotes of this nature that are uttered prior to or as they're being launched into the incinerator after failing to pass the voice testing segment of quality control. Some of them even try to imitate the functional turrets, which goes about as well as one might expect:
--> '''Turret''': Hello. Hello. Hell-aw, crap.
* ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'': ''Everyone Kratos meets and kills.'' Hell, that's everyone Kratos meets.
** A particularly delicious example comes in at the very end of God of War II. [[spoiler: As Zeus is rallying his brothers and telling them that they can win the fight against this one mortal, there is a tremor. Then another. The marble bust of Zeus cracks, and its head falls to the floor, and shatters. The gods rush to the balcony, and the look of pure fear on Zeus's face at what he can see is intensely satisfying. The Titans, as strong as they were in the height of the great war, climbing their mountain, and on Gaia's shoulder, Kratos, the Blade of Olympus in hand and bloodlust on his mind.]] THE PROPHECY SHALL BE FULFILLED!!! AH HAH HAH HAH HAH!
-->'''Kratos:''' Zeus! Your son has returned. [[NoIndoorVoice I BRING THE]] [[LargeHam DESTRUCTION OF OLYMPUS!]]
* Nrvnqsr in ''{{Tsukihime}}'' was already having a tough time of it in his fight against Shiki, but was far more annoyed than afraid... [[spoiler:until Arcueid mentioned that "Oh, by the way, I forgot to tell you this, but Shiki even killed ''me'' once."]] Nrvnqsr's reaction is priceless. And the ''protagonist'' ([[spoiler:and, at the time, [[EnemyWithin Roa]]]]) is subject to one of these. See: ToThePain.
* In VideoGame/KillingFloor this happens way more than one would expect. Whenever you see a Flesh Pound and, to a lesser extent, the Scrake. Then after you defeat all 10 waves, here comes Patriarch. "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY CHILDREN?" and "EVERYTHING"S EASIER WHEN YOU HAVE A ROCKET LAUNCHER FOR AN ARM." In fact, when the Patriarch cloaks, it's the eye of the storm. You wait. He could come at any second. Will he go for you or your team mates? I don't know if I can-OH GOD HE SPAWNED RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME I'M DEAD.
* Xehanort/Ansem in ''KingdomHearts'' had a good laugh in the final battle about the naÔve little kid, who was trying to tell him, that there was light behind his beloved Door to Darkness. He, however, stopped laughing as soon as the aforementioned door unleashed a massive load of pure light against him, leaving him shouting: "[[ThisCannotBe LIGHT? But-But]] ''[[ThisCannotBe why?]]''" as he realizes that he's about to be destroyed by the very thing he has been hunting for the past decade.
** Master Xehanort in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' is extremely smug throughout the entire game, except for one part at the end. [[spoiler:After committing GrandTheftMe on Terra, Xehanort walks off only to be attacked by Terra's AnimatedArmor that has come to life out of his utter hatred for Xehanort.]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Terra-Xehanort:''' "Your body submits, your heart succumbs - so why does your mind RESIST?"]]
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'':
** [[spoiler:Ganondorf]] does this in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' right after he realizes that [[spoiler:the Triforce of Power, which had saved him the first time he had been impaled isn't working anymore]]. As well as when [[spoiler: he dies when he sees a maskless Zant (probably as a near-death hallucination), who kills him by]] ''[[spoiler:snapping his own friggin' neck!]]''
** Link gets one in the same game when he finishes off Morpheel, gets warped to Lanayru Spring, turns around, and...[[spoiler:walks right into Zant]]. Right after that, Midna gets one right before [[spoiler: getting hit with a blast of light from Lanayru]].
** Link has quite a few of these moments in ''The Wind Waker''. The first of them is when he is about to be literally catapulted to the interior of Forsaken Fortress. The second is when he retrieves his sword in said fortress but then he gets trapped in a small battle arena where he has to fight a Bokoblin. The third is when Ganondorf tells him that the Master Sword lost its power.
** Even the [[FeatheredFiend Helmaroc King]] has one. During the beginning of the game, Tetra's crew catapults multiple boulders at him from their ship as he flies away, because he kidnapped Tetra. After several misses, the King looks back at the ship, causing his [[JawDrop beak to open wide]], because he realizes that a boulder is about to smack him in the face. ''[[ThatsGottaHurt It does]]''.
** Tatl has one in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask]]''. After defeating the Skull Kid, she starts going on about how much of an idiot he was. An offscreen voice agrees with her, and she emphatically continues, thinking it's the Skull Kid coming to his senses, until she realizes it's ''Majora's Mask'' -- the thing she basically thought was just an ''accessory'' -- that is speaking. She may be a glowing ball of light, but you just ''know'' that if she had a visible face, it would have a major Oh Crap expression.
** Even Link has one in ''Majora's Mask'' once the Gibdo Man makes an appearance.
** Before the final boss in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Link watches the King of Evil he seemingly killed transform into a gigantic monster called Ganon, which then proceeds to knock the only weapon capable of killing it out of Link's hands to land outside the ring of fire surrounding the battlefield. In addition, this moment is one of maybe three times that Link's facial expression changes from that determined frown.
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', Link has a ''priceless'' reaction when, in the midst of his skydive down to the surface, he realizes that [[spoiler:Groose is diving after him - without anything to use as a parachute]].
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'', after you beat the boss from the fifth dungeon onward, the enemies suddenly panic. They know Link is getting close to waking up the Wind Fish and triggering the inevitable DreamApocalypse.
* In ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'''s "Meet the Demoman" includes a fairly accurate rendition of an in-game encounter with a skilled Demoman, culminating in about a dozen sticky bombs hidden on one side of a door frame, and the sudden (but not quite sudden enough) realization that the Demoman is, indeed, a [[BadassBoast grim bloody fable with an unhappy bloody end]].
** There's another use of this in "Meet the Spy", just before the climax...
--->[[spoiler:'''Soldier:''' "Alright. Who's ready to go find this spy?"\\
'''Spy:''' "Right behind you."]]
** There's also Meet the Sandvich, where we get an entirely verbal version-as the visual of the scene focuses on the Sandvich.
--->'''Soldier:''' He's getting away, don't let him get to the fridge! DO NOT DO IT...\\
'''[[FragileSpeedster Scout]]:''' Don't do it pal, uh...\\
'''[[MightyGlacier Heavy]]:''' Omm nom nom nom ahheheheh\\
'''Scout:''' Ohhh...hey, uh, calm down there, you listening, uhh [[OhCrap OH GOD! OMIGODOMIGODOMI]]-- *CRUNCHWHUNCH*\\ [[spoiler:''My blood! He punched out '''all''' my blood!!]]
** On the battlefield, it is ''beyond'' stupid to taunt, as it will likely just kill you. If you see a Pyro doing this with his flame thrower though? Don't shoot. Just run. In about three seconds, pure pain is about to be released.
** Recorded but [[DummiedOut unused]] is a line for the Scout, which is meant to be played when taking damage while trying to use his Bonk! Atomic Punch. Said line is this trope verbatim, delivered with the scout's usual humorous lack of restraint. One that ''is'' used, added during the 2012 Halloween update:
-->'''Scout:'''"Haha, you got a bomb on your head....OH CRAP I GOT A BOMB ON ''MY'' HEAD!"
** Mann vs Machine has several of these for the mercenaries to say, when a particularly nasty bot is coming.
-->'''Heavy:''' "METAL GIANT!"
** Heavy takes a break to take a bite out of his sandvich...when all of a sudden a "teammate" appears out of thin air in the corner of the room...
** Go to Helltower, wait until the bridge appears, snatch up one of the rare spells, and toss it in the middle of a fray. ''Everyone'' will freak out.
** ''Expiration Date'': Both the Engineer and Medic, when they find out [[spoiler:Soldier has spent the last three days [[ItMakesSenseInContext teleporting bread]].]]
* In ''VideoGame/{{Doom}} 3'', the spaaace marine is pretty calm when blasting his way through hordes of demons. This changes in the last boss fight, where the expression on the marine's face transforms to one of utter terror when confronted by the fifty-foot tall Cyberdemon. Yes, if you notice the marine mouths the words "Oh shit" (Or Holy shit) just as the camera stares at the Cyberdemon's crotch-guard, and then at his face when the Cyberdemon roars. And to a lesser extent, Videogame/{{Doom}} 1's [[spoiler:Cyberdemon fight at the end of the second episode.]]
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'': The look on [[spoiler:Black Waltz No.3's face when he realises that he's accidentally set his own airship on fire- just before he crashes into the South Gate.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtMNgPOZTSQ]]
** Queen Brahne's horrified expression a split second before [[spoiler:Bahamut incinerates her ship.]]
** Kuja, upon realising that Garland has arrived in the Invincible.
** [[spoiler:Hades is the second-hardest [[BonusBoss optional boss]] in the game. However, Ozma, the hardest, can be fought and defeated before you even meet Hades. Do so, and Hades has one of these moments right before the battle begins.]]
* In the intro of VideoGame/Left4Dead2, right after the survivors made it through a rather clingy horde of Infected and into an elevator, Ellis' face mirrors despair and fear, as he exclaims "Holy shit!". The camera pans out to show the big Zombie-infested hall into which they're descending.
** The survivors also go oh crap whenever they hear a Witch is nearby and they have a right to be nervous since she can down a survivor in a single strike.
* You can tell this is ''exactly'' what is going through Orochi's head after [[spoiler:Susano removes his other seven]] in ''{{Okami}}''.
* In the ''VideoGame/SpaceQuest'' series:
** The VGA remake of ''Space Quest'', if you get caught by the Orat, Roger will scream "OH NOOOOO!" before the Orat squashes him into a human basketball and dribbles him.
** ''Space Quest 6'', if you walk off the edge of a broken bridge, Roger will say "Whoops!" before he falls to his death.
* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' has periodic Oh Crap moments.
** By far the most memorable are by Ozzie, who persistently tries to hinder the team's advance, and appears noticeably disturbed each time he realizes it hasn't worked. Twice in the game, this is augmented with the narrative comment "Ozzie's in a pickle!"
** Guardia's Chancellor [[spoiler:who is actually the fiend Yakra in disguise]] also has some [[JawDrop visually striking]] Oh Crap moments, [[spoiler:at times when he's suddenly realized that his carefully-planned carefully-executed schemes have instantly unraveled before his eyes]].
*** Case 1: Crono impales the Dragon Tank through a vital component and gets clear, and the Chancellor orders its repair. When it self-destructs, it blows up the part of the bridge he and his two flunkies are standing on, causing them to hang for dear life as a makeshift bridge for Crono and Lucca.
*** Case 2: The Chancellor and his flunkies corner Crono, Lucca, and Marle in a part of Guardia Forest. Rather than accept a trip back to jail (more proverbial than physical in Marle's case), the three of them jump into the nearby Gate instead.
*** [[spoiler:Case 3: The Chancellor orchestrated King Guardia XXXIII's trial with a forged document and a bribed merchant, even gaining a guilty verdict of four to one on the King. The decision was reversed almost instantly when [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Marle jumped through]] ''[[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome the fucking stained glass window]]'' and produced a shard of the Rainbow Shell, effectively imploding the plot in his face. This is a case of a RebelliousPrincess too wild for an EvilChancellor to control.]]
* In ''VideoGame/WingCommander IV'', the ''Vesuvius'' (a carrier with guns to engage capships directly, as well as attacking them with its fighters) is almost ready to the jump to Sol System, with the ''Intrepid'' chasing it. When the ''Vesuvius'' turns around to engage the ''Intrepid'', it's Blair's turn for the OhCrap face.
* Hideyoshi's reaction before [[spoiler:Matsunaga suicide bombs him]] in ''Sengoku Basara 4'' is this written all over.
* The Zoness stage of ''VideoGame/StarFox64'' involves a submarine boss with two big side-mounted cannons, and a crane to retrieve them when they get shot off. Obviously, the designers intend for you to to shoot the cannons and then OhCrap out when the crane rolls into action... But if you're smart enough to shoot the ''crane'', you get a priceless "Ohh, ''shoot!!!''" from the boat driver, proving that GoshDangItToHeck ''does'' work if you [[LargeHam ham it up]] enough.
** Another boss fight, on Macbeth, consists of a train carrying explosives to a supply depot. If you choose to skip the actual fight and simply change the direction of the tracks, you're treated to one of the game's [[NarmCharm lovable lines]] as the operator realizes that he's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZeB21sTFdg heading right into the depot's front door at top speed]], and his brakes don't work.
*** A third example in the game comes from Area 6, which could also be combined with MookHorrorShow as Fox and his team blast straight through the armada protecting Venom, and the two in charge of the armada are epically freaking out.
--> Leader: Fire! FIRE! Don't let them through!!
*** A fourth would be many of the Star Fox teams reactions to fighting Star Wolf and their advanced ships.
-->Falco: ''[[CasualDangerDialog I see you have new ships.]]''
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has several of these strewn across the games.
** The most notable being [[spoiler: Shepard's expression when debris of Sovereign comes flying into the tower.]]
** If you tell the Fifth Fleet not to save the ''Destiny Ascension'', but to focus on Sovereign, the asari commander of the ''Ascension'' gets one of these when the Alliance stops answering their hails.
** Saren has a little one on Ilos, when he sees the ''Normandy'' swooping in and the Mako flying towards him.
** The neutral conversation choice when warning Rana that you're about to nuke the facility has a priceless reaction.
--->'''Shepard''' I'm gonna blow this place to hell and gone. If you want to make it out alive, you'd better start running.\\
'''Rana''': What!? You can't- But I'll never- Ah! ''[runs]''\\
'''Garrus''': You enjoyed that, Commander.
** During Miranda's loyalty mission, you have an opportunity to pull off a Renegade [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TgTLJXoD_o&fmt=22#t=3m18s interrupt]] while facing off against a group of Eclipse mercenaries. It involves Shepard casually snapping the neck of the mercenary squad's commander, Miranda gunning down the man's second and a couple of his buddies, and Shepard shooting a well-placed crane carrying an explosive crate that wipes out most of the rest of the squad. The only surviving mercenary is a shocked salarian with a ''priceless'' "holy ''shit!''" look on his face.
** Also, [[spoiler: the Collector General at the end of the second game. The ending cinematic has it looking around with an expression of sorrow and fear as Harbinger releases control and the base begins to explode around it. If an expressionless bug alien could make an OhCrap face, that would be it.]]
** Garrus uses this word for word during his loyalty mission when a pair of [[HumongousMecha YMIR mechs]] arrive on the scene.
*** And again during the mission on Sur'Kesh during Mass Effect 3. Shepards opens a door to an elevator, and finds a bomb inside. Garrus invokes this trope by name while the party backs away.
** Mouse's reaction on discovering that both Thane ''and'' Shepard are standing behind him. Immediately lampshaded when Thane informs Mouse that he can change his pants afterwards.
** If [[spoiler: Ronald Taylor]] is abandoned by his would-be rescuers and left to face the consequences of almost a decade of exploitation, he's wearing this expression... just before the first of the hunters jumps him.
** Near the end of [=ME2=], [[spoiler:when the Collectors board the Normandy]], Joker's lines throughout the entire mission to [[spoiler:give EDI control of the Normandy and [[ThrownOutTheAirlock throw the Collectors out the airlock]]]] consist almost entirely of ''"Shit, shit, shit, shit!!!"''
** Big Ben's face says it all in the teaser for ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' as he's hit with a Reaper spotlight. Cue a rapid pan out above London to see not a single but ''eight'' Reapers descending on the city.
** Lampshaded in the Overlord DLC, when [[spoiler: the satellite dish comes crumbling down on Shepard & Co's heads.]] As Shepard put it...
--> '''Shepard''': [[YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe You've]] ''[[YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe got]]'' [[YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe to be kidding me.]]
** There's one in the Arrival DLC. Some people get the jump on Shepard, then pump him/her full of sedatives. Unfortunately for them, Shepard's cybernetic implants also grant 'em AcquiredPoisonImmunity, and the base personnel are horrified to discover that they have to ''increase the dosage'' every couple of hours just to keep Shepard under. Eventually the sedatives stop working altogether and s/he wakes up '''''pissed'''''. One scientist sees this and gets absolutely terrified, [[{{Badass}} especially once s/he punches out both guards in the room effortlessly.]]
--> '''Scientist''': Oh shit, the sedatives aren't working. SECURITY!!!
** [[GenreSavvy Shepard]] has one when s/he sees [[ArtifactOfDoom Object Rho]], and begins to realize what's actually going on.
---> '''Shepard:''' You have the ''Reaper artifact'' just sitting here? ''Out in the open''?! Kenson...''this is not good''.
** Later on, a lone mook has a particularly good one.
--> '''Project Guard:''' I have Shepard stuck in the vents, s/he's not going anywhere. *Sees Shepard* SHEPARD'S OUT! GET ME SOME BACKUP!
** In the multiplayer mode for Mass Effect 3, the Cerberus troops shout "Krogan!" when they see one charging into melee range. As well as such jems as "They're ''horrible''!" and the Combat Engineer's panicked "I need support!" - or the frantic [[TheUnintelligible squawking]] of the Nemesis. Hard to blame them, considering that the [[HeroOfAnotherStory N7 Special Ops.]] routinely face odds that [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]] only ever faces in the endgame of each title. Another common one however is on Reaper maps, when allied forces will nervously yell "[[ThatOneBoss BANSHEE!]]" after hearing that [[HellIsThatNoise high-pitched scream]] in the distance. Or a [[BubbleBoy quarian]] male's or [[BadassAdorable volus']] nervous cry of "Geth Prime!" when being played as by someone else.
** Halfway through being converted into another [[SuperpoweredMooks Banshee husk]], [[spoiler: Rila]] reveals that she's holding the detonator to a bomb... and [[TakingYouWithMe she's just pressed the trigger]]. Cue an open-mouthed gape of horror from the Banshee that was converting her; yep, [[spoiler: Rila]] just made a ''husk'' feel fear!
** During the Mars mission in ''Mass Effect 3'', Shepard meets a group of Cerberus troops that are clearly aware of [[TheDreaded Shepard's reputation]]. Even more impressive since we later discover they are [[BrainwashedAndCrazy heavily indoctrinated]] and can barely think for themselves, meaning that Shepard literally ''is'' so terrifying even indoctrination isn't enough to stop the fear of them!
-->'''Trooper''': HOLY SHIT! IT'S ''SHEPARD''!!
** On the final Rannoch mission, you are dispatched to blow up a Reaper broadcasting device. You use a targeting laser to call in the Normandy for an airstrike, [[spoiler:and then you find out that you just woke up a Reaper]]. Then the Reaper has a subtle one after Shepard defeats it by ''charging at it on foot''.
--> '''Reaper''': [[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Shepard? ]]

--> '''Shepard''': You know who I am?
--> '''Reaper''': [[/folder]]

[[folder: Harbinger speaks of you. ]]

** When Kai Leng tells his gunship to "target the supports" of the temple on Thessia, Shepard gets a ''full-body'' OhCrap moment, drawing up his/her gun, backing away and then trying to make a run for it.
** How many times does ''Shepard'' get this? Well in a romance with Garrus the Citadel DLC has him drag her onto the dance floor. The entire galaxy knows Shepard can't dance, and when he does she looks terrified.
** Shepard gets another one during the final mission on Earth, just as it seems they've cleared out all obstacles, Anderson gets a communique that ''Harbinger'' is on the way... personally. Shepard's tone of voice when responding to this has a general, resigned sound of "Well, ''shit''."
** You get to take another turn causing these reactions in your enemies in the Citadel DLC. The CAT-6 mooks you're fighting crap their pants when they realise that your force contains (depending on survival rates in past games and the DLC you've installed) a MemeticBadass vigilante, a [[BloodKnight krogan]] battlemaster, and even potentially a ''[[{{Precursors}} Prothean]]'', and their boss doesn't expect them to survive, just slow you down. Also, because they're jamming messages so you can't contact help, ''they can't contact help either''. Gets even more satisfying when they realise that all of these other people barely register as ''nuisances'', much less threats when compared to [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]]. On the other side of that DLC, a number of your teammates - most notably Garrus and Vega - get this reaction should EDI be accompanying you to reclaim the Normandy, causing her to be temporarily shut down when the villains shut down her shipboard processor.
* {{Ratchet|AndClank}} gets several. ''RatchetAndClank3: [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Up Your Arsenal]]'' features Ratchet showing identical "we're dead" expressions upon a) discovering that Captain Qwark, their last hope, thinks he's a monkey, and b) when [[spoiler:Clank turns out to have been replaced by an evil duplicate, who promptly grows to 30 feet tall and attacks him]].
** The final boss of [[RatchetAndClankFutureToolsOfDestruction Tools of Destruction]]. [[spoiler: after the first phase, Tachyon's basically [[TurnsRed gone insane]], and the Dimensionator has ripped open a hole in spaaace and sent our eponymous duo and the BigBad to some random asteroid in the middle of spaaace, leaving no chance for escape. The only option is going on with the fight.]]
** [[RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime A Crack in Time]] has one from Nefarious's troops, whenever you pull out the [[{{BFG}} RYNO V]] in front of them-- [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that it's the proper response to being stared down from behind this [[ImpossiblyCoolWeapon glorious]] weapon:
--> '''Nefarious Trooper''': [[PrecisionFStrike Holy crap!]] ABORT! ABORT!
* In the ''WorldOfWarcraft'' expansion ''Wrath of the Lich King'' is one in-game video available after a quest line, in which Arthas manages to kill [[spoiler:Saurfang the Younger and is about to kill Bolvar]]. But then [[spoiler:the Forsaken]] appear, with Arthas saying just one word ([[spoiler:"Sylvanas..."]]) in a real Oh Crap voice before getting his ass kicked and retreating.
** Relatedly but less dramatically, in the official trailer for Patch 3.1, you can tell this is what Jaina's thinking when she sees that Thrall and Garrosh are going to arrive before Varian Wrynn has left.
** In the ''{{Warcraft}}'' RTS games and ''WorldOfWarcraft'', the Bloodlust spell. It boosts attack speed by 40% and movement speed by 10%. This is a specialty for the heavy hitting Orc faction. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YePpuaIi8c4 Make sure you are the one getting buffed.]]
** ''Cataclysm'' has one in the Goblin starting area. The Goblin captain and navigator are piloting [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Trade Prince Gallywix's]] slave ship, and get lost in a fog; when the fog clears, they find they've steered right into the middle of an Alliance-Horde naval battle.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsXglDs81FU#t=1m30s You called, little shaman, and The Firelord has answered!]]
** This basically sums up Thrall's reaction in ''RiseOfTheHorde'' that the draenei, the orcs' old neighbors-turned-enemies who they nearly made extinct, have arrived on Azeroth and joined the Alliance.
** In the finale of ''Cataclysm'', [[spoiler:when Thrall gets ready to use the Dragon Soul to blast Deathwing]] we get a brief but satisfying close-up of Deathwing's eye widening in panic [[spoiler:as he recognizes the ArtifactOfDoom ''he created'' -- he knows all too well just how badly the thing can screw him over.]]
** In Reign of Chaos, one mission has Arthas and Jaina track down a shipment of tainted grain that turns those who eat it into zombies. Then this happens:
---> '''Arthas:''' Wait... What did those crates contain?\\
'''Footman:'''Just a shipment of grain from Andorhal. There's no need to worry milord, it's already been distributed amongst the villagers.\\
'''Arthas:''' Oh ''no...''\\
-Cue small-scale ZombieApocalypse and HoldTheLine mission-
* ''DawnOfWar: Dark Crusade'':
** At the end of the Necron Headquarter map, their voice when [[spoiler:they realize you have planted a bomb]] is awesome.
--->[[spoiler:'''Necron Pariah:''' My Lord, the living have--''(KABOOM)'']]
** Most times a stronghold is defeated there will be one of these, for example [[spoiler:Eliphas realising he's about to be on the receiving end of a YouHaveFailedMe]], or [[spoiler:the entire Tau army before they go into HeroicBSOD when their Ethereal dies, especially in ''Soulstorm'']].
** The Imperial Guard respond to coming up against Necrons with a terrified "Oh no...not ''them!''" Since most other enemies earn relatively calm phrases like "Orks are in the perimeter", this reinforces that Necrons are ''really bad news''.
* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'':
** When your character unleashes an [[DesperationAttack Ultra Combo]], your opponent will get a seriously scared look on his/her face right before the first blow connects.
** Plus, newcomer Rufus yells this out verbatim when he gets knocked out.
** In the full introduction movie (not whats on the game CD), Gouken does this after giving what seems to be a knockout blow to Akuma, only to have him warp behind him and unleash the Raging Demon. Especially funny when you see the timing of the actions matched up with the lyrics: Akuma recovers into the RD just as the lead is saying "My spirit's in-de-struc-ti-ble," followed up by one long "Ooohhhhhhhhh" as Gouken eats the attack. You can almost add the crap yourself.
** Also, any Super Combo or Ultra Combo KO is sure to make anyone exclaim this... especially if it's a counter-move and the finishing move is inevitable.
** This was carried over to ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'', which uses the same engine.
* ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' for the Wii:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YypaieysZ-A The opponent will make a distinct expression just before the player lands a Star Punch]]. Among the best are Piston Hondo (who actually mutters "Shimatta!" - "Oh, crap!" in Japanese - before it lands) and Bear Hugger ("Aw, no...").
** [[http://uzumakisonic619.deviantart.com/art/Doc-Louis-Unleashed-125132930 The look on Doc Louis' face]] when he first sees [[ScaryBlackMan Mr. Sandman]].
* ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty 4'':
** During the final gunfight, if you shoot Zakhaev's goons first, you'll have just enough time to see him spin around and give you a priceless "OH SHI-" look right before you shoot ''him.''
** Probably the BIGGEST OhCrap moment in all of Call of Duty happens as you assault Zakhaev's base (which is in fact a missile silo). You see a nuclear ICBM launch into the sky (remember, each of them has 6-12 high yield nukes in them...and they only take about 30 minutes to reach their target...and with no warning, it's unlikely to be stopped at all). And then [[FromBadToWorse ANOTHER ONE LAUNCHES.]] You've now got (maybe) 20 minutes to stop WorldWar3 and TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.
* ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare 2'':
** In multiplayer, scoring 25 kills in a single life will give you the Tactical Nuke killstreak. When it's deployed, the normally calm and collected announcers will scream that a nuke is inbound. Even the [[TheStoic Task Force 141 announcer]] is noticeably panicked. It's up to you to imagine the looks on their faces.
** You essentially get the same effect if the enemy should ever get an AC-130. The announcers tend to be calm and focused for most of the match until either a nuke or AC-130 appears. Especially the Spetsnaz announcer. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1m7u4WU2hs Listen for yourself.]]
** There's also one instance during the campaign: When Price boards the Russian submarine all by himself and [[spoiler:launches an ICBM]], all that Ghost can do is helplessly scream ''"CODE BLACK! [[NukeEm CODE BLACK!!!]]"'' into the radio.
* ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore For Answer'': "Please Accept My apologies, the briefing you saw was manufactured. This is the end of the road for you. I think you understand [[MoralEventHorizon why]]." Cue 4 Flying into the battlefield. And on Hard difficulty, there are ''five'', with the extra one being the mission control.
* ''{{Chromehounds}}'':
** About any player/squad's reaction to seeing an Unidentified Weapon. An in-game example is the friendly ACV squad in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNDjnLBc0nI Sal Kari Unidentified Weapon's]] intro. The pilots know all too well what's going to happen after the Ghalib unfurls its massive missile silo.
** Alexei Ismailov has one when he sees Carlos Nadal's Cerberus HOUND.
* Dagoth Ur from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' completely breaks down in a rather short amount of time. In the first encounter with him, he is calm, collected and quite civil, even to the point of carrying a rather lengthy conversation with the player character before fighting him. After Ur retreats, he becomes more noticeably annoyed, but remains confident in himself and berates the player-character for being foolish. It's only when the player-character begins removing the enchantments (that allow Dagoth Ur and the Tribunal to connect to it) from the Heart of Lorkhan that Dagoth Ur loses it. Considering that is one thing he never expected anyone to do, his breakdown is plenty justified.
* ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' has plenty of these, both heroic and villainous. The best 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:DangerouslyGenreSavvy Calisto Yew pulls a gun on him after he does the usual "corner-the-murderer" thing.]]
** The absolute pinnacle of them however is [[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.
* At the end of ''VideoGame/DeadSpace'' [[spoiler:[[TheMole Kendra]]]] has just enough time to exclaim "Oh my God!" before the HiveMind smashes [[spoiler:her]] into paste. Isaac [[TheQuietOne doesn't talk much]] but judging by his body language, he's having the same thoughts.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', [[spoiler:President Eden]] has one of these moments if you tell him you know his self-destruct code. He thinks you're bluffing. Your character then casually rattles it off. His (more or less) last words consist of a horrified and almost [[TearJerker heartbreaking]] "Oh! Oh... my."
-->'''Sarah Lyons''': Take cover! ''BEHEMOTH!!!''
** The raiders have rather amusing OhCrap moments should you toss a grenade their way. Or reverse pick pocketing-placing a grenade or land mine in their inventory instead of taking it out frequently followed with them noticing and exploding after yelling "fuck me" and "holy shit"-also they will jump up go rigid and then fall apart into arms and legs its a very odd explosion
** Benny gets a good one in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', in which confronting him about trying to kill you early-game and stealing the Platinum Chip, he sends you up to the Presidental Suite for a "chat" which turns into him ambushing you with four of his goons. After you kill them, this exchange can take place on the intercomm:
-->'''Benny:''' The cleaners will knock twice. Make sure they're thorough.
-->'''The Courier''': Yeah, it's a real mess up here - four bodies.
-->'''Benny:''' What the ''fuck''?
** General Lee Oliver gets one of these at the Battle Of Hoover Dam when the walls fall down to reveal your army of upgraded Securitrons standing right behind him.
*** Even better is if after you talk him down into simply retreating, in which he boast about [[TemptingFate how if he were in your shoes he would personally see you hang]], this exchange can happen.
--->'''Courier:''' ''"I see. Yes Man, please throw General Oliver from the Dam."''
--->'''Oliver:''' ''"What the hell? No, get away from me, you goddamn TV on wheels!"''
** With the "Terrifying Presence" Perk, sometimes the Courier simply has to annouce who they ''are'', in order to provide this reaction.
* ''CompanyofHeroes'': So you're cutting a swath through German lines with your [[TankGoodness M10s and Shermans]]...and then the Wehrmacht brings up ''their'' armor. To quote the Allied tank commanders: "Oh shit, that's a [[CoolTank TIGER!]]" Usually followed by frenzied commands of "Drive, driiiiive!" or, very frequently, [[StuffBlowingUp loud explosions]].
* In ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'', SmugSnake [[spoiler:Azuma]] assumes that he is a MagnificentBastard, and nonchalantly shrugs off a threat. Much to his shock, however, the one ''making'' the threat then proves he wasn't joking, causing [[spoiler:Azuma]] to almost piss his pants and inadvertently blurt out that [[spoiler:Naoya was ''supposed'' to make the [=COMPs=] incapable of harming 'ranking tamers', rendering them useless against the Shomonkai. Only... Naoya didn't.]] Ass-kicking follows.
** In ''[[UpdatedRerelease Devil Survivor Overclocked]]'', we have these gems from [[TheLancer Atsuro]] and [[TheCaptain Izuna]] in Naoya's 8th Day Scenario, after [[PhysicalGod Metatron]] appears before the heroes, rip shit pissed.
---> '''Atsuro''' ''Whoa... He... He's HUGE!
---> '''Izuna:''' ''I've seen angels before but, but that thing's just... it's another order of MAGNITUDE!
* In ''{{Spore}}'', this is one of the animations that creatures can do, and EVERYONE RUNS IN SHEER PANIC whenever there is a meteor storm or a UFO.
* There's a beautiful OhCrap moment in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9VBrPREN4Y teaser trailer]] for ''MechWarrior 5''. Its 3015, and the view-point character is piloting a ''Warhammer'', which is a good, solid, heavy mech, but not the biggest. After taking down a light ''Jenner'' mech with little effort by collapsing the building it was standing on, the viewpoint character rushes into the ensuing dust cloud, not noticing some movement on the other side of the cloud. A few seconds in, the ''Warhammer'' stops on account of having run into something. Staring down a wall of unrecognizable metal, the pilot pans the camera up...and realizes he's staring up at [[spoiler:a skull-faced ''Atlas'', which is ''the single biggest baddest Mech of the era and fully capable of taking him to pieces''.]] [[spoiler: It does. The Warhammer pilot ejects after being brutalized, his mech's computer [[EjectEjectEject warning of critical damage to internal systems]]. The pilot's EjectionSeat launches him straight up, and his parachute brings him straight down. He looks down just in time to see his Mech's [[FromBadToWorse ammo bays explode below him]].]]
** On the other hand [[spoiler:the bird's eye view from the probe he launched seconds earlier clearly shows two mechs and its fairly obvious that the ''Atlas'' was one of the scary heavyweight assault mechs, the skull face itself is visible, so the OhCrap is a result of the pilot forgetting about the second mech and not recognising the largest mass-produced humanoid chassis in the Battletech timeline. TooDumbToLive most definitely.]]
** In a CallBack to the MechWarrior 3 intro (see below), [[spoiler: the Atlas pilot realizes too late that the 'Mech he'd just wasted is going critical. He already has his Atlas in full reverse by the time the Warhammer pilot looks back down.]]
** Opening cinematic for the first MechCommander. Light squad of Inner Sphere mechs is scouting an urban environment, when out steps a Clan Mad Cat -- a 75-ton assault machine somehow undetected by the Raven scout mech whose entire purpose is sensor recon. The Mad Cat pilot wastes no time, disposing of the second-heaviest IS mech with his first barrage. Commands from overhead result in everybody except the Raven pilot running for their lives, as the MechCommander's superiors watch in confusion. The Raven is instructed to GET THE MAD CAT'S ATTENTION. The Raven pilot follows orders and unleashes his scout mech's weapons against the Mad Cat, a move that which does little more than nothing. Except piss off the Mad Cat pilot, which turns to face him. Cue background-stretching perspective shot and, "...I've got his attention, sir..." as the Raven pilot realizes he's staring down the guns of a Mech that is double his weight, almost as fast, and had already effortlessly wiped out one teammate. The MechCommander leads the Raven into a dead end while fleeing the pursuing Mad Cat. [[spoiler:it was a distraction to give the rest of the squad a chance for tactical movement and a clear shot at the Mad Cat's back. The Mad Cat falls for it, tunneling on pursuing the Raven and getting shot in the back before he can deliver a coup de grace. Of course, a well-trained Clanner would have been slow to remember that while Clanners like samurai-style duels, Spheroids are {{Combat Pragmatist}}s.]]
** ''MechWarrior 3'' provides a couple on both sides for its introduction. For the Inner Sphere, there's Ground Commander watching one of their ''Firefly'' Mechs go down [[OneHitKill in a single shot]] and the ''Atlas'' pilot's reaction to the ''Mad Cat'' GoingCritical. For the Clan Smoke Jaguar Mechs, the aforementioned ''Atlas'' showing up out of nowhere to surprise the ''Mad Cat'' and the realization that there's two-score missiles coming straight for your cockpit for the ''Thor''.
* Gilgamesh vs Shirou at the end of UBW route in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. To his credit, a lot of the fear is more irritation at the fact that [[spoiler:some no name brat just ''cut his arm off'' before he could even try using his WaveMotionSword.]] The "oh crap" factor of the realization he is ''losing'' is ''still'' partially deflected by how gigantic his [[ItsAllAboutMe ego]] is.
** From the first route, both [[spoiler: [[BigBad Kirei]] ]] and [[TheDragon Gilgamesh]] get a moment of this in their duels with Shirou and Saber respectively. [[spoiler: Kirei]] gets his when Shirou survives two curses containing [[TheCorruption ALL the evils of the world, ever; Past, Present and Future.]] (To be fair, Shirou did use [[spoiler: Avalon]] to survive the second one), before Shirou runs up and puches his chest out via an explosive magical dagger. Gilgamesh gets his when Saber uses [[spoiler: Avalon]] to block Ea, his [[EarthShatteringKaboom World Breaking]] WaveMotionSword, before she charges and cuts him in half with an Excaliblast. Gilgamesh gets quite a few of these, mostly when he realises that yes, there are people who can beat him.
** From ''Heaven's Feel'', there is the moment when True Assassin discovers that Rider's chain-dagger is lodged in his shoulder. Wall-slamming ensues.
* The [[FiveBadBand Quarter Knights]] in ''VideoGame/WildArms1'' have one when [[DiscOneFinalBoss Mother]] reveals her true intentions. Apparently, they didn't count on their leader being an OmnicidalManiac.
* [[spoiler:Karen Parker]] in ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}''.
-->[[spoiler:'''Karen:''']] You know what he can do? He'll kill me! ''(thump)'' Oh my God. Oh my God, he's here! He's in the building!\\
'''Alex:''' (''transforming'') I know. ''(FadeToBlack)''
** ''Prototype'', having as it basically does ''Film/TheThing1982'' as a ''[[VillainProtagonist protagonist]]'', inspires this trope a lot: Alex walks up behind Doctor [=McMullen=] and says cheerily (for him, anyway), "Hey, boss." The [[strike:good]] doctor falls right out of his chair in horror.
** "Oh shiiit!!" The last words of many a Marine right before [[ImAHumanitarian Alex digs in]].
** Alex lets himself drop an "Oh shit," when his cover is blown at a Blackwatch briefing due to [[spoiler:Bloodtox]].
* ''VideoGame/ThiefIITheMetalAge'': [[SinisterMinister Father Karras]] has a plan [[spoiler:to cover the world in gas that dissolves living matter while he stays sealed in an air-tight chamber]]. He didn't expect [[PhantomThief Garrett]] to turn the plan back on itself [[spoiler:and pump the stuff into his hideout]]. The close-up lingers ''just'' long enough to catch his expression changing.
* In ''CityOfHeroes'', the first reaction enemies have to you entering their perception is a "turn and look" that lasts for one or two seconds before they start shooting. This can have a distinct "OhCrap" effect when the player is able to get in a hit during the period of delay. One of many ''especially'' satisfying ways to accomplish it is [[DynamicEntry to use super-jump or teleportation to drop your character into the midst of a group of mooks and then use a player-based area-of-effect knockback attack to send them flying in all directions]].
** There's also a few scripted instances of this. In the Statesman's Task Force, Dr. Aeon gloats at you from a hidden room, explaining how you'll never escape from your predicament without getting the codes from the 4 Arch-Villains scattered through the zone. He then berates himself for telling you how to escape, and orders one of his goons to erase the recording they just made. The following exchange occurs:
-->'''Goon''': "Uh, sir?"
-->'''Dr. Aron''': "What?"
-->'''Goon''': "You, uh, said you wanted to transmit this, uh... live."
-->''beat''
-->'''Dr. Aeon''': "AAAAAGH! Turn it off, TURN IT OFF!"
** Throne of Bhaal features one of the more entertaining examples of the trope. As you invade the layer of the Drow Bhaalspawn Sendai, you are repeatedly shown cutscenes of Sendai with her lieutenants. Since by this point your character is easily one of the most powerful mortals on Faerun, when her captain stumbles in stuttering that it's ''you'' invading her layer and slaughtering her minions, she falls into an OhCrap moment that just keeps on getting worse and worse as you leave more and more of her best minions in bloody pieces behind you. It doesn't truly stop until she's dead.
* Done rather marvelously in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV''; after [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption repeatedly failing to save the other crystals]] your party finally reaches a crystal that didn't shatter shortly after their arrival. Galuf finally recovers his [[LaserGuidedAmnesia memory]], and is reunited with his granddaughter, Cara/Krile. Then Lenna/Reina and Faris are reunited with their father, King Tycoon. So the crystal's secure and three of the party members were reunited with their loved ones... Things are looking up now, right? WRONG. After the SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}, the final crystal shatters ''anyway'', giving the entire group a huge wake-up call, and the BigBad Exdeath makes his grand entrance, ominous entry scene, {{Leitmotif}} of Doom, EvilGloating, and EvilLaugh in all thier full glory. Bartz muttering "Shit!" as the entire scene quickly goes downhill doesn't even ''touch'' how much of an OhCrap moment this was.
* After defeating the Succubus in ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight Castlevania: Symphony of the Night]]'', she finally realizes that the guy whose [[MommasBoy mommy issues]] she tried to manipulate is, in fact, Dracula's {{badass}} rebellious son and that he is ''not amused''. The moment of total astonishment is just icing on the FateWorseThanDeath.
** ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow'' has a good one after defeating Cornell's human(-ish) first form. The camera cuts to him, hunched over and panting, with an expression that clearly says "how am I ''losing'' to this guy?!"
** At the end of the DLC of ''Lords of Shadow'', when Gabriel steals the powers of [[GodOfEvil The Forgotten One]], the demon [[KnowWhenToFoldThem quickly yields]] and implores his better to [[AintTooProudToBeg have mercy]] upon him. {{Dracula}} [[CoupDeGraceCutscene has none]].
* General Lionwhyte gets two in ''BrutalLegend''. First, before the final Stage Battle against him, when he notices the sword Lars has levelled at his throat, and finally realizes that the resistance aren't just bumbling idiots and will actually ''kill'' him if they get the chance. Later, after the battle [[spoiler: when a mirror from his tower is about to fall on him, he attempts to stop it... only to shatter it instead and make it even more lethal. The look on his face reflected in the shards of mirror as he realizes just how badly he screwed up is priceless]].
* Nathan Drake of ''{{Uncharted}}'' has this almost as his catchphrase. He says it, or some variation, every five minutes. Either that, or he's so far beyond panic that he gets ''irritated'' at the insurmountable odds stacked against him.
** If Drake falls from a high place to his death, he will occassionally shout out "Oh Shiiiiittttt!!!!!"
* The CO's in ''[[NintendoWars Super Famicom Wars and the Advance Wars]]'' games (Except 2) get an "Oh Crap" look on their faces whenever one of their units is about to be destroyed.
* Done in ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland: The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood''
** "Oh, [[HoldYourHippogriffs grog nuts]]!" That phrase WILL go through your head when [[spoiler:[=LeChuck=] casually reveals that he has been {{evil all along}}, right before stabbing Guybrush through the gut]].
** Morgan [=LeFlay=] gets one in Chapter 2 when she realises that she's about to be knocked overboard.
* ''AceCombat'' enemies frequently have this reaction upon encountering the player character late in the game. The target of any superweapon attack also do this. The two words are explicitly dropped in ''X: Skies of Deception'' when your allies see that [[spoiler: there's another Fenrir in Archelon Fortress trying to escape to Leasath and they can't do anything about it themselves.]]
** [[spoiler: "The 8492nd Squadron doesn't exist!!!"]] Cue about 30 enemy planes appearing out of nowhere.
*** The shining example in this series is the final mission of Ace Combat 04. Yellow Squadron, defending Megalith, is ordered to ignore all incoming aircraft except Mobius One, reasoning that the remaining attackers are of little threat (a signal of how much they fear the player.) Then they realize that they're up against Mobius Squadron. The reaction: "They ALL have ribbons!"
*** Also, in Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, ''"Colonel, it's him, the shark bastard!"'' ''"[[PrecisionFStrike Shit]]."''
** The player's first experience with [[FrickinLaserBeams the Excalibur]] in ''AceCombatZero'': right after it cuts through three allied transport planes in one attack, you hear about five different pilots loudly wondering what the hell just happened.
* ''SyphonFilter'': "This one's different from the others..." :beep: :beep: :beep: :KABOOM:
* ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]'':
** Against the bosses sometimes as well. The reaction of Midbus and minions in Bowser's Castle when Bowser nearly throws it halfway across the kingdom is priceless. As is the reaction of the Monty Moles driving the Fawful Express after seeing Bowser's massive eyes through the windscreen.
** In contrast, when Midbus is roasted by giant Bowser, he reacts in an unimpressed deadpan manner.
** Mario and Dreambert's reaction in VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam when they realise the living version of Mount Pajamaja is about to ram them at about 90 miles per hour. Of course, it's pretty likely near anyone else would react the same way to that situation.
* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', Rachel's familiar Gii gets this expression when Rachel's Astral Finish [[CounterAttack gets countered by]] Hakumen's. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiO7eQFK0_4 See 1 min 45 sec in this video]].
** Iron Tager's Genesic Emerald Tager Buster is good for causing this in the receiving player. It deals '''[[MemeticMutation Real Soviet Damage!]]''' that can and has turned tables.
** Hazama gets his own in his ''CS'' gag reel, where he unwittingly winds up bathing in 100% Spanish Catnip. Tao and two Kaka kittens nom on him uncontrollably, Jubei wants to take in his scent deep before killing him, and Kokonoe wants to sharpen her claws on his chest; it's not until Kokonoe fully explains what his cat allergies are doing to him that the viewer realizes this is effectively the worst day in Hazama's life, and by the end of it all, every feline in Kagutsuchi ''wants'' him badly. [[AssholeVictim Run, fat boy, run!!]]
** On a more serious note with Hazama, any time Celica appears in front of him is treated as this - she has the power to suppress seithr, which interferes with the operation of ars magus and the Azure Grimoire, but whereas Ragna's is limited to the right side of his body, Hazama's Azure Grimoire ''is'' his body, so when she shows up, his bodily functions slow down to the point of incapacitation. Every time this happens, he screams for an immediate evac from Phantom.
*** This is highlighted at the end of the ''Six Heroes'' story - [[spoiler:Rachel and Trinity send a wave of illusory opponents at Terumi in order to draw him out and materialize his consciousness in the real world, whereupon Hakumen can kill him. In this story, at the time this happens, he is right next to Hakumen, Jubei, and the aforementioned Celica. He is justified for begging for an escape, because all he can do under those circumstances otherwise is [[BringMyBrownPants crap himself]] and [[KilledOffForReal await his inevitable doom]].]]
** Ragna the Bloodedge often gets these a lot in gag endings, often coupled with a BigWhat, for plenty of good reasons. For example, he even gets one in Rachel's gag ending when Jin enters, having been attracted by the effects of the Spectacles of Eros.
-->'''Ragna''': Hey! Not you too?! And what's with those eyes? They're... heart-shaped...?!
* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', the player may encounter this if he or she stays on any one floor of Tartarus too long. The simple sound of chains rattling will send you running for the exit, unless you've come ''extremely'' well-prepared.
** In one of the video recordings, Shinjiro has this reaction when Fuuka and Aigis are about to walk in on him... [[RealMenWearPink watching a cooking show]]. In ''[[UpdatedRerelease Persona 3 Portable]]'' a panicky ''"Aw crap!"'' escapes his mouth when he hears them coming.
* In FreeSpace 2, it takes a massive fleet-wide effort to coordinate the weakening and eventual destruction of the Shivan juggernaut ''Sathanas'', culminating in an epic slugfest between the NotQuiteDead ''Sathanas'' and the ''GTVA Colossus''. In your tiny fighter, you can only watch the titans slug it out, until the Colossus emerges - Battered, but victorious. [[spoiler: And then another, fresh Sathanas warps right in on top of the remains of the old one. Through a Subspace Jump Node that you had already collapsed. [[ClusterFBomb And more are on the way.]]]]
** [[EnsembleDarkhorse Lt. Snipes]] has one later on, which he helpfully passes on to the player. [[spoiler: "DIVE DIVE DIVE! HIT YOUR BURNERS PILOT!" And then you just barely dodge a speeding, screen-filling juggernaut jumping out just as you jump in. If you try to dodge in any direction except down as he tells you,]] your tiny little fighter will be crushed like a tin can in a trash compacter.
* In [[{{Otomedius}} Otomedius Gorgeous]], you're faced with Big Core DX. Okay, sure, it's just a regular Big Core, it's not so dangerous looking. And then it deploys Options. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Six of them.]] OhCrap.
* In ''VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom'', Zero uses these exact words in his ending when he realizes the BigBad is NotQuiteDead.
* In ''HeavyRain'', Norman has one in the "Case Closed" ending, when [[spoiler: he sees tiny virtual tanks running around on his desk, but then he realizes, OhCrap! He's not wearing the glasses! He's actually probably insane now! Fade to black.]] This is also what [[RabidCop Lt. Blake]] would react when [[spoiler:Madison get pasts his roadblocks in "The Old Warehouse".]]
* [[KnightTemplar Veger]] has this look on his face near the end of ''[[JakAndDaxter Jak 3]]'', right when he puts two and two together: [[spoiler: He was bathed in a light that would turn him into a Precursor... Precursors are ottsels... therefore, he will be turned into an-- [[KarmicTransformation POINK]]!]]
* The part in ''Jak X'', when Jak realizes [[spoiler: Jak's weapons aren't working]]. In the middle of a race. One can only imagine Daxter's reaction.
* ''{{Starcraft}}'':
** From an early scene where two [[DeepSouth Terran]] [[RecycledINSPACE soldiers]] hit what they think is a dog with a jeep.
-->'''Lester:''' Looks liak yew mashed sum powr fella's dowg, Sarge.\\
'''Sarge:''' It's a Zerglin', Lester. Smaller taip'uh Zerg. They woun't be owt this far unleyess... owwww sheyat.\\
''(Hydralisks proceed to disembowel the two men off screen)''
** Towards the end of Brood War, Zeratul's discovery of the hybrid.
* Episode 3 in ''LostPlanet 2'' is just about full of these moments. Especially near the end [[spoiler: just after you've escaped a town infested with both a massive amount of snipers and some medium-huge akrid on train, you meet another MUCH BIGGER train with a pretty massive railway-gun on it. Then when you board it your train gets rocket'd. Then after you've successfully killed every last Snow Pirate on the enemy train, the biggest Akrid you've seen up to that point (a humongous worm that actually ate your first train) comes rushing in from the back, wanting to eat this train as well. The moment it emerges from the sand is really just... "Oh Crap!" And THEN you kill it and find that your hometown has been covered under snow because an even bigger akrid (seriously, this thing's a MOUNTAIN!) has absorbed all the heat in the area... Yeah...]]
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' provides a great OhCrap moment in the Female City Elf origin: shortly after being kidnapped by Bann Vaughan for a "[[AttemptedRape party]]," the PC ends up in a back room, cornered by two guards who know that she's been trained as a warrior/rogue, about to be tied up for the ensuing atrocities. Then her cousin Soris shows up at the door and tosses her a sword; the guards look from Soris to the PC, and one of them mutters "Oh sod..."
** In the cutscene at the beginning of the Battle of Ostagar, Cailan realizes that he underestimated the size of the Darkspawn horde. His expression says it all.
* In ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'', your hunter will literally flinch when spotted for the first time by a large monster, accompanied by some fitting music [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rPT1AMPKs0 (heard here at around 1:09)]] and an eye icon that changes from yellow to red (monster spotted you to monster has targeted you respectively). Not to mention that some of the larger monsters will roar so loud ''your screen blurs.''
** Actually, the condition has change you only flinch if you are walking with your weapon undrawn. However, unless you become knowledgeable with that monster, you will say oh crap at the higher level ones.
*** Barroth seems easy, just like that gigganox but more jumpy, right? Alright got my sword and- HOW DID IT HIT ME! NO! TARGET MY FRIENDS! DAMNIT!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIrUebor7us Deviljho]], Enough Said.
** when a Qurupeco lets out a full blown roar even the most experienced hunter has one of these cuz you just know this just truned in to a 2+ monster high rank hunt
* In ArchimedeanDynasty the moment comes when, during a routine patrol, a massive Biont battleship silently passes in front of you, knocking out your electronics with its mere ''presence''. And then things go to hell. Really, ''really'' fast.
* ''VideoGame/Rayman3HoodlumHavoc''. When you defeat [[spoiler:Reflux]]'s [[SequentialBoss third form]] by shooting him in the power crystal embedded in his back with a missile, causing him to plummet back down to the arena, Rayman does the usual victory pose, blows a raspberry at the now unoccupied air in front of him, and two seconds later, [[spoiler:Reflux]] simply floats back up unharmed.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'';
** This is a ''combat ability''. "[[MagikarpPower GYARADOS]]' Intimidate cuts [[ElementalRockPaperScissors foe GEODUDE]]'s Attack!"
** [[spoiler: [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Ghetsis]]]] in ''Black''/''White'' expresses his eagerness to see the look on your face when you've lost all hope. Unfortunately, you can neither wish him likewise nor get a good look at ''his'' face when you stomp his fancy hax dragon into so much paste on the floor, [[spoiler: along with his WorldDomination plot]].
* From the climax of ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}''.
-->'''Raz''': Where's [[TheButcher your dad]]?
-->[[spoiler: '''Little Oly''']]: [[spoiler: He's over there, talking to ''[[MonsterClown your]]'' [[MonsterClown dad]]!]]
** The look on Lili's face just before [[spoiler: the brain tank]] bursts from the rubble in at the asylum.
* In RedDeadRedemption, a random encounter has Marston coming upon two men working with dynamite and surrounded by barrels marked TNT. When Marston gets close, one of the men will exclaim to the other "Time for a cigar. Got a light?" Marston gives no remarks [[spoiler: a second before the camp and the two men disappear.]]
* [[NightmareHouse You can't escape from the Nightmare House.]]
* In the opening to ''EpicMickey'', Mickey Mouse has this moment when he hears Yen Sid returning (after creating a monster AND spilling paint and thinner on another world)
* Moebius spends the entirety of the ''LegacyOfKain'' series as the SmugSnake to end all {{Smug Snake}}s. Being TheOmniscient, he can see that all his schemes are going to work, and if Kain or Raziel try to stop him, he can give the former a heart attack with his staff, and disable the latter's Reaver. [[spoiler: That is, until Kain comes back from the dead... again. [[NotSoOmniscientAfterAll Moebius is completely caught off guard,]] and since Kain's heart was ripped out, he has absolutely no way to stop him. The look on Moebius' face the whole time is priceless.]]
-->Kain: First your omniscience, and now your powers. You're slipping ''badly.''
** Kain gets one himself in Defiance: after having lived thousands of years, and spent most of those years plotting and snarking, he's left nearly speechless when [[spoiler: Raziel allows himself to be absorbed by the Soul Reaver, allowing him to see the Elder God. Just realizing what his true enemy is, and what he sentenced Raziel to when he killed him, gives Kain the only dumbfounded look we've ever seen cross his face.]] Then, [[UnstoppableRage he gets angry...]]
** Moebius' reaction to [[spoiler:Kain's revival and newfound immunity to his power]] pales in comparison to his sheer horror [[spoiler:when he finally sees the true horrifying form of the Elder God.]]
* ''{{Drakengard}} 2'': Manah has an ''epic'' OhCrap moment when she first meets the one-eyed man [[spoiler: a.k.a. Caim]]. There's even an FMV devoted to it.
* Done hilariously in ''[[VideoGame/MetroidPrime Metroid Prime 2: Echoes]]'', where you can find Pirate logs detailing an ill-fated expedition. The logs end with them panicking about the destroyed stealth field and two Samuses.
-->'''[[ApocalypticLog Pirate Log]]:''' Horrific as it may sound, there are two of them now. We are bracing for a new assault.
** In ''Corruption'', a Space Pirate log details how they inadvertently brought the remains of [[BigBad Dark Samus]] with them while hastily collecting Phazon on Aether. Dark Samus then revives herself in their cargo hold...
--->'''[[ApocalypticLog Pirate Log]]:''' Surely, we are cursed.
* ''Franchise/SpiderMan''
** ''VideoGame/SpiderManWebOfShadows'': Spidey has just planted bombs in key locations on a S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier infested with symbiotes. Suddenly huge, black, oily tentacles grab the ship:
--->'''Spidey:''' Ohhhhhhh boy.
** In a similar vein, in ''VideoGame/UltimateSpiderMan'', Spidey is chasing after the Rhino. When he first comes across the trail of destruction, he knows that fighting the Rhino is going to suck ("Ooooh, this hurts already."). When he meets the Rhino, who in this continuity is a 15-foot tall robotic armor-tank?
--->'''Spidey:''' Hey, is that a rhino suit, or are you just happy to see... (''Rhino turns around and stands up to his full height'') ...I am so scared I can't even finish my lame joke.
* ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'': The default expression of Altair's and Ezio's targets.
* ''{{Umineko|NoNakuKoroNi}}'':
** Episode 6: From [[spoiler:"USHIROMIYA KYRIE CANNOT SAVE BATTLER"]] to [[spoiler:"You told me I could make the detective proclamation whenever I wanted, right? ......Well, unfortunately, ...I am no longer capable of making that proclamation."]]
** In Episode 3, this is Eva-Beatrice's reaction to Beatrice deciding to deny the existence of all witches, after which she panics but is held down by Ronove until Beato's denial burns her away.
* Despite being an unstoppable war machine, Horny from ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper 2'' gets a brief 'Oh Crap' moment when he first attacks a Stone Knight, and it just looks at him as his scythe bounces harmlessly off its neck.
* At the end of [[VideoGame/BackToTheFuture Back To The Future The Game]]: Episode 2, Kid Tannen holds up upstairs in a building full of explosives. [[spoiler:Marty makes a fuse out of liquor and lights it.]] Kid's reaction could double as a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}}.
* VideoGame/GoldenSun: TLA has one at the end. [[spoiler:Alex is at the top of Mt. Aleph as the Golden Sun rises, preparing to receive godlike power. Then, [[PhysicalGod The Wise One]] shows up and explains how Alex's plan was doomed from the start. Alex is quite upset.]]
** The sequel Dark Dawn has one at the end as well. [[spoiler: You start the game intending to investigate some magic-sucking holes in space, then forget about it about a quarter of the way in. [[HalfwayPlotSwitch While you've been distracted saving the world from something else, the vortexes have been growing off screen until the end]], forming a SequelHook.]]
** Another one from Dark Dawn is when the entire cast realizes that [[spoiler:The Wise One had failed to kill [[BigBad Alex]] and he's been [[MagnificentBastard stringing them along]] [[TheChessmaster for the entire game]].]]
* In ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'', Vath, the third Lord of Chaos and first Chaos Lord to be a jerkass in his own right, gets an OhCrap moment when the hero destroys both his Chaos Dragon Amulet and his Legendary Sword of Dragon Control via AccidentalAimingSkills. His OhCrap moment gets turned up a notch even more when he realizes that his dragon that he enslaved, Stalagbite, has turned against him now that he has been free of his control.
-->'''Vath''': (after his sword and amulet are destroyed) No. NO! You fool! You have no idea what you've done!\\
'''Stalagbite''': (wakes up and looks at Vath) You...\\
'''Vath''': No! WAIT! This wasn't supposed to happen! (Stalagbite roars and pins him down)
** Zahart, controller of [[spoiler:the Eighth Lord of Chaos,]] Tibicenas, also gets one when he sees that Zhoom has destroyed his magic ring. This happens right before Tibicenas [[spoiler:proves that EvilIsNotAToy by lifting his former master into the air and brainwashing him into his new slave]].
** Artix also gets one whenever he notices the Fear Feeder and receives sudden fear of it. Pretty unusual for a paladin, if you ask us (He normally only fears the color pink, but still...).
* Whenever you play Through the Fire and Flames on Expert in GuitarHero 3, there's only two words that greet you on the loading screen: "Good Luck". And that's all they need to say, too.
** And as of 3/25/11, Harmonix just announced that it's DLC for [=RB3=], and with PRO GUITAR, no less. Better kiss those hands good-bye.
* [[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 [[HolyRomanEmpire Holy Empire]] ForTheEvulz]].
-->[[spoiler:'''Iris''': ...! How careless of me. I wasn't expecting an audience so soon.]]
* These happen in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|1}}'' at random; if you shoot a grenade at the marines, sometimes they'll yell "Oh, ''shit!''". Often times they can't complete their sentence, resulting in a CurseCutShort. Similarly, snipers in the ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'' series will sometimes yell "Shit!" before a grenade you've thrown at them goes off.
** "Doctor Freeeeeemannn..."
** At the end of the first chapter of ''Episode Two'' when you finally see what exactly is "snooping around out here".
** When you destroy the barn Advisor's generator, and instead of it dying, the pod opens and the Advisor inside psychically lifts you and Alyx into the air, immobilizing you so effectively that you can't even raise your weapon.
** You're leisurely driving past the White Forest Inn, when suddenly your cat smashes into a Combine forcefield.
*** "It's a trap!"
** The final Strider battle at the end of ''Episode Two'':
-->'''MIRT:''' Looks like that was the last one! ''[beat]'' ...Wait a minute.
** In the final scene of ''Episode Two'', when you start seeing flashes of light as you enter the helicopter hangar.
* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'': As Batman takes out more and more mooks from the shadows, the remaining mooks will notice their missing (or incapacitated) friends, and they will appropriately start freaking out. All more the fun with detective vision on, since you can slowly see their heartbeat rise and their emotional well-being plummet. This mostly holds true in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' as well, except for when Batman encounters the BrainwashedAndCrazy TYGER troops.
* The StarOcean series features this in the sound bytes for each character at the start of a battle. Against an enemy that outmatch your level sufficiently, the general consensus is barely restrained panic. (Dias from Second Story averts this pretty much forever, and even inspires it himself sometimes. This is because Dias is Dias.)
* In addition to featuring similar bytes for bonus bosses and high level monsters, ''LuminousArc'' features -strategic- Oh Craps. The characters will inform you, in varying shades of worry, if the enemy is going to do something nasty on its turn, and ignoring their warnings can quickly lead to disaster.
** VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia does this too, to warn of enemy casting.
* VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia, right at the beginning.
-->'''Dhaos''': [[MemeticMutation WHAT THE HECK IS THAT??]]
* You can't see the infantrymen's faces in ''FinalFantasyVII'', but it's pretty easy to imagine this look on their faces when Cloud brings out [[{{BFS}} whatever sword he happens to have equipped.]]
** Cid gets a perfect OhCrap (his cigarette even falls out of his mouth) when the WEAPONS are flying out of the Northern Crater from the deck of the Highwind.
** Happens several times in the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' movie ''AdventChildren'':
*** Cloud has a perfectly understandable moment when Sephiroth first appears, literally inches from Cloud's face.
*** Sephiroth gets one of his own when Cloud brings out the new and improved Omnislash.
** ''Every single person'' who played the original ''FinalFantasyVII'' had the same OhCrap expression when this scene finally occurred in ''VideoGame/CrisisCore:''
--->'''Zack:''' Alright. Where are we going?
--->'''Sephiroth:''' Nibelheim.
* In ''VideoGame/InFamous'', Cole has one of these moments the first time he faces against a Dustman Golem.
-->'''Cole''': (seeing Alden's [[OneWingedAngel boss form]]) "''Holy shit...''"
** Also in the sequel, when he first fights the Behemoth.
** As well as in the 2nd game's DLC "Festival of Blood" ending, Zeke reacted like this when he realised [[spoiler: the lady hes been sharing the whole vampire story with was actually one herself.]]
-->'''Zeke''': "''Aw shit...''"
** Also when Zeke and Cole see [[spoiler: the Beast survive a nuke to the face, only to explode in their faces, then continue his rampage.]]
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' Squall after [[SugarAndIcePersonality feigning emotionlessness]] for a good portion of the game, and finally warming up to Rinoa, has a rather sharp wake call right about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXKAjJJ7iu8 here]] in Time Compression. Made worse by various [[WMG/FinalFantasyVIII interpretations of the scene]] [[spoiler: most notably [[http://squallsdead.com/ this]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svSCgA9BU0c theory]] about everything being a DyingDream]]. Regardless, whatever he sees during this montage freaks him out.
* ''Oh Shit!'' for the {{MSX}}, one of the laziest ''{{Pac-Man}}'' ripoffs ever made, had a digitized voice saying the game's title whenever the player lost a life.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Geist}}'', one of the possible death sounds for the standard soldiers.
* ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''. After you learn of the Ultimate Chimera being loosed in the Labs, the creepy music that had been playing gets replaced by [[NothingIsScarier silence]], save for the roars of the beast and the screams of the [[{{Mooks}} Pigmasks]]. When Lucas and Boney get cornered by it, [[HeartbeatSoundtrack the sound of Lucas' heartbeat is the only sound to be heard]], [[SongsInTheKeyOfPanic speeding up as it draws closer.]]
* ''BatenKaitos'':
** In ''Origins'', [[spoiler:Shanath]] gets an incredibly satisfying one when [[spoiler:Sagi powers himself up and cripples his machina arma]].
** In the first game, [[spoiler:Melodia]] had a big one when [[spoiler:Kalas ripped off his wing and rejected Malpercio]].
* In ''[[VideoGame/KirbySuperStar Kirby Super Star Ultra]]'', the intro to Milky Way Wishes explains, "In this game, Kirby can't copy the abilities of his enemies!" [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110610110043/kirby/en/images/6/6a/KSSU_MWW_caveat.png His reaction]] is hilarious to behold.
** Similarly, when the characters of VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamLand learn that [[spoiler:Magolor has been manipulating them the entire time to obtain the Master Crown from Landia, at which point he dons it and becomes incredibly powerful,]] Dedede's face is priceless.
* ''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden'': Ryu Hayabusa's Oh Crap moments in the Original Trilogy is summed up in two words: "What the...?!" WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd even lampshades this in his review of Ninja Gaiden.
-->'''AVGN:''' "What was he gonna say? 'What the fuck?!'"
* Poor Prince Eonia in ''VideoGame/GalaxyAngel'' when he sees the light of the [[WaveMotionGun Chrono Break Cannon]] comming toward him all he can do is stand up and look horrified. Oh crap indeed.
* Shown in ''AsurasWrath'' when [[spoiler: After Wyzen, now the size of earth, tries to kill Asura by using his finger to crush him, Asura starts lifting it BACK UP! Wyzen has this type of look on his face. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Before being punched into oblivion]].]]
** At the very end of episode 14, [[spoiler:Sergei, the most despicable of the Seven Deities]], gets a very satisfying one of these right before [[spoiler:getting slashed in half by Wrath Asura]].
** In episode 15.5 [[spoiler: Yasha vs. Deus, near the end of the fight, when Yasha activates his Vajra and tries to attack Deus with the same punch that broke Asura out of his Wrath form... Deus takes it without even flinching, cue Yasha having this facial reaction.]]
** In the final episode, [[spoiler: [[BiggerBad Chakravartin]] has one when his attempt to NoSell Asura's punch fails and he gets thrown around like a ragdoll, cue a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown that leads into a "ThisCannotBe" moment preceeding his death, and it is ''glorious'']]
* Seath the Scaleless in ''DarkSouls'' roars in fury and likely fear when he realizes that the player is within striking distance of his SoulJar.
* In ''KingdomsOfAmalurReckoning'', Gadflow's eyes widen and his mouth falls open in shock and terror when he finally sees [[spoiler:his "goddess" Tirnoch]] for the first time in the flesh. [[spoiler:He likely wasn't expecting Tirnoch to be a gigantic and fearsome dragon.]]
* DynastyWarriors series: Pretty much the only appropriate response when you notice Lu Bu heading in your direction.
* In KatawaShoujo, Rin has this when she realizes that on Friday night, she only has one more day to complete her mural before the festival on Sunday.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', the look on your party's faces when [[spoiler:Galenth Dysley reveals himself to be the fal'Cie Barthandelus]] is this trope in its purest essence. For the first time in the entire game, ''all six'' of them are ''visibly terrified'', and considering some of the crap they've already been through up to this point, that's saying a ''lot''.
* ''VideoGame/BrainDead13'': Fritz when he realizes [[SuperRugPull what Lance was doing with the carpet...]]
** Also, Lance gets this look in the intro when he discovers that he has put Neurosis' "rage" in our hero's "average" and that Fritz is ordered to [[DisproportionateRetribution kill him for calling the mad scientist "average"]].
*** Though Neurosis ''was'' going to have Fritz kill him anyway...
* In {{Killzone}} 3, the BigBad has an epic one after [[spoiler: you fire a nuke at his flagship]]:
-->'''Stahl''': Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!
* In VideoGame/DungeonsOfDredmor, this will be your reaction when you open an otherwise normal door, only for the game to suddenly lag, which means [[TheWarSequence you just kicked open a monster zoo, and the game's having trouble loading the army which will be chasing you down shortly]].
* The FullMotionVideo game ''VideoGame/TimeGal'' has Reika react like this in some of the death scenes. Luda, the BigBad, does this as well, right before you defeat him.
* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', the first dragon you face screams [[BigNo "No!"]] when you strike the killing blow and he realizes that you are a Dragonborn, a mortal with a dragon's soul who has the power to permanently kill dragons by absorbing their souls. Another dragon roars in shock when you manage to trap him like a rat. Finally, [[spoiler:[[BigBad Alduin]] has a moment like this when you strike the final blow. He breaks down mentally as his body breaks down physically, protesting that he cannot die.]]
* Lee, the main protagonist of the ''WalkingDead'' game has a few of these, but probably the most dramatic is when Lilly puts her gun between Carley's eyes and pulls the trigger, especially if you'd been supporting Lilly up until that point.
* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' evokes this more than once, such as the BossSubtitles for the final boss of "Dr. Ned's Zombie Island"
-->[[spoiler:Undead Dr. Ned. HOLY F***ING SHIT!!!!!]]
* At one point in ''[[VideoGame/{{XWing Alliance}} X-wing Alliance]]'', the player accidentally flies into a secret Imperial weapons testing ground guarded by ''four'' Star Destroyers, none of which are happy to see you. It gets better if the player is familiar with the wider Expanded Universe: the destroyers are all future members of [[TheThrawnTrilogy Thrawn's]] fleet, and the lead ship is none other than the ''Chimaera'', his future flagship.
* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' offers plenty of opportunities for the player to have one of these, with a handy message at the bottom of the screen. Some of the most common panic-inducing words there include Forgotten Beasts, bronze colossi, pierced aquifers, dangerous terrain that wasn't dangerous before, collapsing caverns, [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent vile forces of darkness arriving]], anything involving clouds[[note]]Yes, clouds. Clouds made of evil dust that horribly sickens your dwarves, and will probably zombify them[[/note]] and, possible the worst of them all: [[spoiler:You have come across an eerie cavern]].
* ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'' gives you two options when Yuuya is confronted by [[DeadlyDoctor Doctor Shuu]] and he lies about having been with you a few moments beforehand. You can choose to go along with Yuuya's lie. But if you choose to tell Shuu that he's lying, Yuuya has just one thing to say...
--> '''Yuuya''': ...Shit.
* In ''VideoGame/Rockman4MinusInfinity'', [[spoiler:Shadow Man gets this reaction after defeating him as the BonusBoss in Wily Stage 4 when his smoke bomb that he used to cover his escape every other time fails to go off. To rub salt into the wound, it then ''does'' go off moments after he explodes.]]
* ''DoomTheRoguelike'', being [[CaptainObvious a roguelike]], has plenty of these moments in store for you. Most of the worst ones are helpfully announced by a message that hints just how screwed you are. The best example's probably "Suddenly you have a great urge to turn back! You scream in TERROR!", which means [[spoiler:[[MacrossMissileMassacre every single enemy in the level has been replaced by Cyberdemons]]]].
* In [[VideoGame/PrinnyCanIReallyBeTheHero Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero?]], the very first line heard in the game. "Oh crap, [[VerbalTic dood!]] I'm so late!" Considering what Prinny is late for, Prinny has [[VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness every reason]] to be [[FateWorseThanDeath upset.]]
* ''Videogame/KerbalSpaceProgram'' provides handy visual feeds of your kerbonauts on the corner of the screen, and while the cowardly ones will probably scream the entire trip, the braver ones will stay calm until something goes horribly, ''horribly'' wrong.
* ''VideoGame/MadFather'': Aya has one during a flashback in the TrueEnding, when we revisit an earlier exchange of Father and Maria's.
--> '''Father:''' ...She is my most precious... [[spoiler:Doll of them all]].
** She gets it even worse when she sees another flashback, this time of Father [[spoiler:burying a knife in Mother's chest]].
** And this all culminates with the biggest OhCrap of all; after this information is revealed to Aya, she wakes up... ''right beside Father''.
* ''{{Misao}}'': If you choose to sacrifice the wrong person, you end up being transported back to the real world ''with the killer''. You see the [[TraumaCongaLine chain of events]] leading to Misao's murder, and Aki is left with the murderer before her. It only gets worse when [[spoiler:the killer realises that Aki saw the flashbacks too, and now [[HeKnowsTooMuch knows everything]]]].
* During Scenario 30 in the Spaaace Route in ''VideoGame/ShinSuperRobotWars'', Dr. Hell and Baron Ashura get this reaction when they are about to be destroyed by the SRX. They also wonder if Zechs Merquise can provide some backup.
* Raiden in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' gets an "Oh, crap" moment himself when he encounters Fortune, a terrorist that can't be shot due to bullets being manipulated to wiz by her and grenades that turn into duds if used against her. She also carries a powerful railgun.
* In VideoGame/FireEmblemRadiantDawn, [[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.]]
* So you've just beaten the final boss of ''TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky''. Estelle and Joshua are enjoying the victory celebration at the end, and you're getting ready to see the credits roll. [[BigBad Oh, it's that absent-minded archaeologist you kept running into]] [[FromBadToWorse coming to say hi to Joshua]] -- [[BlatantLies how cute]]!
