The odds are down, the enemy's tied the heroic group to a chair and have a nuclear missile pointed straight at them. All's lost, right? Wait! There's a Million-to-One Chance
that they can get out of this situation victorious, but it will take split second timing. Of course, before
attempting to do this split second timing, the heroes point it out to each other that the chances are minimal through the phrase:
"We only have one chance!"
Which, of course, means they'll invariably succeed. May be used in situations where It Only Works Once
- In Code Geass, Suzaku used his "Live on!" Geass to perfectly time his attack, which allowed him to exploit the One Chance he had to deactivate FLEIJA.
- Sunshine had a fairly well justified version of this: the ship only had one bomb, so if something went wrong, there was no other option.
