It's a classic scene: after a prolonged battle the hero finally has the stylish villain cornered atop a high tower. The hero's reinforcements are finally arriving and the villain know that even if he defeats the hero, his schemes are thwarted. Rather than surrender, the villain salutes the hero, says "You win this round, but WeWillMeetAgain" and then [[NoEscapeButDown leaps out of a window]] into a [[SoftWater convenient lake or moat]] and swims away, as the hero considers going after him but decides against it.
