  • The free-runner in the "It's Not My Time" video cuts his Big Damn Heroes moment extremely close.
  • Skillet - Hero - "A Hero's gonna save me just in time...."
    • And that hero is Jesus Christ himself. Doesn't get any better than that!
  • Nate Dogg rolls up and shoots Warren G's would-be robbers just in time in "Regulate".
  • My Chemical Romance's video for their hit singles, Na Na Na and SING both held such moments. Unfortunately, neither of them turned out well for the good guys.
  • In the Story of Evil fan song "Daughter of Vengeance," Meiko is ambushed by one of Rin's soldiers. Luckily, Kaito, who is leading The Cavalry, arrives just in time to slay him with an arrow.
