Descending Ceiling

Go To
Willie! We are going to die!
"That was too close. You were almost a Jill sandwich!"
Barry Burton after saving Jill Valentine, Resident Evil (original PS1 version)

Deceptively simple-looking Deathtrap intended to turn tall, dark and handsome heroes into short, red and gruesome meat patties. Usually doesn't work because the villain stupidly leaves (or allows a hero to retain) some object capable of holding back the ceiling long enough for an exit to be made, for the motor powering the ceiling to burn out or simply able to turn the damn thing off. Or he may forget the Five-Man Band has a Load-Bearing Hero with them. Sometimes may be (part of) a Living Structure Monster.

Deluxe versions include sharp, pointy spikes that grow out of the moving surface.

Occasionally some factories have a Descending Ceiling built in, possibly part of or at the end of a Conveyor Belt o' Doom. These places clearly have lost their OSHA compliance.

The impending danger is usually emphasized by multiple shots of the ceiling descending.

Often subject to Magic Countdown - the ceiling moves back with each shot. The inverse is Lift of Doom. When the walls threaten to crush a character, rather than the ceiling, that's The Walls Are Closing In. Whatever they do it's always Just in Time. This may also be a form of Advancing Wall of Doom. Video game levels based on this may be Escape Sequences.

    Anime & Manga 
  • In Angel Beats! this is one of the traps set up to protect the Guild against Angel. Unfortunately, it works for the SSS as well, meaning TK has to sacrifice himself. Luckily for him, Death Is Cheap.
  • Doraemon: Great Adventure in the Antarctic Kachi Kochi have the ruthless shapeshifter robot, Yamitem, having captured Doraemon alive, rendezvous with Nobita and gang and leading them to an ascending platform with a spiked ceiling on top, trying to have everyone killed. The real Doraemon managed to escape and catch up, leading to a Spot the Imposter moment before Yamitem gets defeated and Doraemon quickly stops the trap.
  • In Ghost Hunt there is a ghost who makes the ceiling collapse in a school.
  • Happens during the House of Sagittarius episodes of Saint Seiya. The cavern beneath the Gold Saint's House, already filled with traps, was rigged to collapse and crush the one escape corridor underneath. Dragon Saint Shiryu stays behind, as is his wont, to prop up the collapsing ceiling with his bare hands. When the pressure forces him down to his knees, he has a flash of inspiration and punches the ceiling into rubble. Considering he prides himself on reversing the flow of waterfalls with his punches, and all Saints can reduce cliffs to pebbles with their Cosmo, letting the drama trick him into a Heroic Sacrifice was a bit of an Idiot Hero moment for him.
  • SD Gundam World Heroes has one in the Almalechal Palace, complete with its own Spikes of Doom...with the twist being that the "spikes" are actually Z'Gok claws.
  • In Street Fighter Alpha Vega's arena is rigged so if more than two fighters fight at a time the ceiling will lower and crush them.
  • YuYu Hakusho had a variation on this, where the Descending Ceiling was precisely calibrated so that it took all the strength of Yusuke, Kuwabara, Kurama, and Hiei to hold it up and keep it from crushing them; it was set up to let the most traitorous member in, with the first one to let go being able to escape in time while the other three were crushed.

    Comic Books 
  • Cherry Comics: Cherry and Adventurer Archaeologist Oklahoma Smith have sex while one is descending on them in "Oklahoma Smith and the Lost Temple of Doomed Raiders".
  • Deadpool was placed in one of these, except that the ceiling was a giant teddy bear. It was constructed by a villain with a very Saw-like mentality (though he predates the films). The rate at which the bear descended was linked to the victim's speech. All he had to do to survive was shut up. Being Deadpool, he instead dislocated his limbs to get out, talking all the while.
  • Mary Marvel #24 has Mary knocked out by the Nightowl, who binds and gags her and places her under an automatic presser. But she removes her gag on a spike from the guard gate, escapes, and captures the Nightowl.

  • In Sherlock Gnomes, Moriarty plans to crush the kidnapped gnomes beneath the base of the Tower Bridge drawbridge, which descends as the bridge opens.

    Film — Live-Action 
  • D.E.B.S. (the feature) has a sequence where our heroines get trapped in a safe with descending Spikes of Doom. Amy manages to persuade Lucy to deactivate the trap.
  • Escape Room: Tournament of Champions During Ben's nightmare, Zoey goes to use the restroom at the hotel while Ben lays down. He gets up and checks the window when all of a sudden he hears Zoey start panicking because the bathroom door gets mysteriously locked. When the camera pans over to the bathroom door, you can see the ceiling descending.
  • From the silent film The Golem: When the Rabbi's magic show at the Imperial court is interrupted by the frivolous courtiers, the magic backfires and causes the ceiling of the palace begins to descend. Luckily, the Golem saves the day before the worst happens.
  • A variant in the remake of The Haunting (1999) has the heroine's entire bedroom turned into this trope by a hostile supernatural force. Pretty alarming, as the walls, ceiling, and spikey ornamentation writhes and contorts like a living thing rather than closing in mechanically.
  • Highlander II: The Quickening had one of these with a rotating blade attachment, it shredded Ramirez.
  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. There are spikes that spring out of the ground carrying mysterious impaled skulls that weren't there before.
  • Madhouse (1974) has a shackle bed trap. Shackles clamp the victim to the bed, and the weighted canopy drops on top of them, crushing them to death.
  • Parodied (like so much else) in Neil Simon's Murder by Death.

  • Animorphs #32 had a variant where the purpose was psychological torture, rather than death. (Except the trapped character wasn't the open-space-loving alien the Big Bad thought she was.) In fact, the trick to stopping it proved to be threatening to pull a Taking You with Me.
  • In Doom: Knee-Deep in the Dead, Arlene has to retrieve a key card from a platform with a descending ceiling.
  • The gruesome short story "The Iron Shroud" by William Mudford, published in 1830, has this trope as its entire plot.
  • A famous variation can also be found in Edgar Allan Poe's "The Pit and the Pendulum".
  • This trope may have originated with the Sherlock Holmes story "The Engineer's Thumb", in which the titular engineer almost gets turned into a hamburger.
  • In "A Terribly Strange Bed", a short story by Wilkie Collins, some innkeepers murder (in order to rob) their guests by giving them a canopied bed where the canopy can be silently lowered to smother the sleeper.

  • This was used as a torture device in 'Allo 'Allo! by the Gestapo to get information and once Rene and the German officers told Herr Flick (who was playing an organ at the time) the truth he refused to believe them and went to kill them. They took the cyanide pills their friends had given them by they didn't work and the General came just in time to free them. This was all Played for Laughs.
  • In an episode of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons Col. White and Captain Blue are trapped in a hunting lodge with a Descending Ceiling.
  • One of the games on the Japanese Game Show Dasshutsu Game DERO! places a team of players in a room where they have to solve a series of puzzles via Linked List Clue Methodology while the ceiling slowly descends. (Unlike most examples of this trope, the ceiling actually seems to pause if it's about to render the game Unwinnable by blocking access to any items needed for an unsolved puzzle, but will speed up afterward to compensate.) The puzzles eventually lead to a way to open up a duct at the bottom of one wall, after which one member of the team must crawl in to reach the button that raises the ceiling back up and wins them money, but it's not easy, as the only thing that separates between the one contestant crawling and the button is the plexiglass, which is lubed with oil to make it slippery, also hidden are spider webs designed to slow them down. If time runs out and the ceiling reaches 3 meters below its initial height (this seems to be the height at which it would start to block the duct if it went any lower), the team fails and leaves empty-handed.
  • Doctor Who: Barbara is almost killed by one (the deluxe spiked version) in "The Keys of Marinus".
  • This was one of the challenges on Fort Boyard. The ceiling doesn't crush the contestants as they try to find the right key, but it will sink low enough to block off access to the exit if they're not quick enough, resulting in them being locked in.
  • Jonathan Creek does this, in one of the episodes, a legendary escape artist attempts to escape from an ancient well, which was believed to be a "doorway to hell". The escape artist isn't there when they check later. And he is later found dead in a river. Jonathan deduces that the well actually had a massive false Descending Ceiling that descended upon people in the room. The rest is too spoiler-y.
  • In the MST3K episode, Hercules Versus The Moon Men, a hokey spike trap, inspires Joel and the Bots to recreate a classic "booby" trap trick. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Stargate SG-1 includes at least one episode with two chambers with Descending Ceilin gs.
  • The fifth episode of Ultraman Ace have Ace getting trapped in Giron Man's massive underground cavern and caught in a spiked ceiling that's threatening to crush him. In a typical villainous display of Bond Villain Stupidity, Giron Man then leaves Ace trapped over there while going to the surface to wreak havoc with his monster, Aribunta, but Ace is able to deliver an Ultra Sign getting his eldest brother, Zoffy, to bail him out.

    Tabletop Games 
  • In the Dungeons & Dragons module Tomb of Horrors, one of the false entrances to the the tomb traps the characters in and then hits them with a Descending Ceiling trap.
  • The lurker above, from older editions of D&D, is a Descending Ceiling Monster. Apparently, enough stupid adventurers wander into this trope for a species of predators to make a living emulating it.
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! has Needle Ceiling.

    Theme Parks 

    Video Games 
  • In Alex Kidd in Miracle World, several rooms in the final castle level would try to trap Alex Kidd in an enclosed space and drop either a curtain of water or Spikes of Doom on him.
  • At the end of Stage 8 in Ardy Lightfoot, the hallway's ceiling starts to fall, and as hope seems lost for Ardy, the ceiling suddenly stalls; Don Jacoby is using all of his strength to hold up the ceiling to give Ardy enough time to escape. Ardy does, but the ceiling completely falls as soon as he reaches safely, implying that Don was crushed to death. However, Don shows up—alive and well—to assist Ardy in the final battle.
  • In the Illithidae realm from Ball Revamped IV: Amplitude, a descenting wall gradually reduces the amount of safe space.
  • Banjo-Kazooie has a large maze in the Shifting Sand Land area. The maze has a time limit, and the ceiling fall and crush you when time runs out. To add to the tension, there are some really good items hidden in the corners, and the music that plays over the area gets faster and higher in pitch the closer the timer gets to running out.
  • In Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen 2, there's one part of the maze in the Eternal Prison where you get trapped by moving pegs and a spiked ceiling begins to descend. Fortunately, it's much further above you than the cutscene makes it look, it descends VERY slowly, and all you have to do is flip a nearby switch with your telekinetic powers.
  • In Conquest of the Crystal Palace, the hallway to the final boss room has a rapidly descending ceiling. If you take too long to break the door open, it crushes you to death.
  • Contra 4 has something like this in the final level.
  • Distorted Travesty 3 gives us a segmented ceiling lined with instant death spikes to harass the player.
  • Doom uses many areas with crushing ceilings to inflict critical damage on any poor soul unfortunate enough to get caught under one. There are two versions, both doing the same damage over time. The "slow" descending traps the player by slowing down the crushing process, while the fast one does a quick crush and raise. Also, during the crushing phase, the player can't move because the ceiling is too low. Both of these are introduced in E2M4, the "slow" crusher having blood splatters on the ground, while the fast crusher being a surprise trap covering the key. There is a third type of such mechanism which involves floor going up and crushing whoever is standing there against the ceiling, but it is mostly found in the user-made levels.
  • Doom II: In Level 6, if the player is playing above "Hey, Not Too Rough" difficulty, he is pitted against a Spider Mastermind that one would normally be ill-prepared to fight at this point in the game. Fortunately for the player, a switch near the elevator you get off lowers down a crushing ceiling to kill the Spider Mastermind for you. Thus, the level is appropriately named "The Crusher".
  • Dusty Raging Fist have multiple areas with spiked ceilings in the factory and temple stages, where you'll need to defeat every enemy so that the next exit can be unlocked before the spikes crushes you.
  • Some dungeons in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion contain an interesting subversion (As well as an inversion); instead of the ceiling coming down, the floor rockets upwards. Towards a spiky ceiling.
  • In Fable III, during the quest "Gone, But Not Forgotten" the ghost of Max (one of the two brothers from Fable II who kept getting involved in supernatural trouble), having gone mad with power after getting his spectral hands on the Normanomicon again, traps your hero in a room with one of these. His brother Sam shows up to save you, but ends up going on a tangent that results in him not stopping the descending, spiky ceiling until the very last second.
  • Final Fantasy VI: Inside the Zone Eater, there is an area with a ceiling that slams onto the ground every few seconds. There are holes in the ceiling that you can hide in, but if you slip up and get crushed, the screen slowly fades out to a Game Over. Fortunately there is a Save Point in the preceding room.
  • In Final Fight 3's Game Over screen, your character (either Haggar, Guy, Lucia or Dean) is bound to a table as a deluxe spiked ceiling descends on them. If you don't slip in a quarter and continue, it's safe to assume they were pierced AND crushed to death.
  • In God of War, Kratos must hold one up and slowly inch his way to the exit while being attacked by dogs. Hilariously, if you stick around after escaping, you'll see the dogs get crushed.
  • In God of War (PS4), there are a number of ceiling traps that have to be set by winding them up and then freezing the gears with his Frost Ax. In one setpiece, you also have to fight some Draugr without your ax, as it is holding up the ceiling. But while Kratos can jump across gaps, draugr can't. So if you run from them, and retrieve your ax, the ceiling will slowly descend towards them, and then crush them, making the fight much easier. Atreus thinks it's hilarious.
  • Golden Force have these obstacles in several ruins, either as spiked ceilings lowering towards the ground or the floor raising to the ceiling to crush you, and you'll need to reach the next area in time or lose a life. Onscreen mooks tends to die horribly in the process.
  • Gunstar Super Heroes has this as a boss; the "File Crash/Save Crusher". It's a boss in the Dice Palace where you have to shoot downwards to escape. If you die, your save file apparently gets deleted. Thankfully, this is just an empty threat to scare the player.
  • King's Quest VI had a Descending Ceiling halfway through a labyrinth with an exposed gear mechanism inside the room. It'd be laughably easy except the only way to jam it is a brick found mere inches from a instant-death trap three islands over and several hours back. Oh, and you can't exit the labyrinth once you enter it. Better hope you've got a save before that! (Or you bought the guide.)
    • Extra-cruelly, if you try to jam it with the convenient object-to-hand, it almost works.
  • Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards has this on Shiver Star Stage 4, which makes it probably the toughest level in the game.
  • Kirby's Return to Dream Land has a stage in the Egg Engines area where several of the area features the ceiling constantly falling and lifting; each time, the placement of the safe areas was different, and some even had the Energy Spheres tucked in these safe spots that had to be collected before the ceiling lifted up.
  • Occurs in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in the Forest Temple. Not only is the ceiling falling, spiders hide above the safe squares to doom you. There are also spiked weights in Shadow Temple that you need to prop up, or else you will get squished.
  • In Little Nemo: The Dream Master, the auto-scrolling House of Toys level has a part in which a ceiling covered with Spikes of Doom repeatedly tries to strike Nemo from above. There's a similar but more drawn-out example of this in Nightmare Land.
  • A popular variant seen in both Marathon Infinity and Shadow Warrior (1997) is one where there is a Insurmountable Waist-Height Fence that you can't fit through but can shoot through, and a tiny, non-notable-looking switch in the distance you have to hit with a high explosive weapon to get the barrier out of the way before you're flattened.
  • A few are found in the Mega Man franchise, including:
    • Mega Man X3 has a ceiling trap, and you have to fight a miniboss before you can escape. One reason to be careful with Zero during the game is that he'll hold up the ceiling here if you haven't broken him.
    • Mega Man X6 has Metal Shark Player's stage, which has a trash compactor threatening you with instant death throughout the entire level. Said trash compactor returns in the second stage of Gate's Lab if you're playing as Zero.
    • Lan has to escape one of these traps in the castle in Mega Man Battle Network 2.
    • Uranus could do this in Mega Man V (GB)/Rockman World V for a One-Hit Kill attack.
    • In a homage to Uranus, Drill Man in Rockman 4 Minus ∞ could do the same thing.
    • Mega Man Zero has an interesting variation - Zero and Aztec Falcon are fighting on top of the ceiling, and Zero's trying to prevent it from crushing the Reploids underneath.
  • In La-Mulana, one room in the Chamber of Birth has a switch that causes a spiked ceiling to descend. You need to activate a hidden switch to open a wall that suddenly appears to trap you in, and then use the spikeless other side of the ceiling as a platform.
  • In Ninja Spirit, the area of the fourth stage leading to the Boss Room is a long corridor with a slowly descending ceiling, with Mooks to hinder you along the way. You have to reach the end before the ceiling touches your head.
  • Projector Games, a series of massive local multiplayer minigames often found at Dutch anime cons, contains the game Pitfall (no relation) where every player runs down a series of platforms attempting to outrun several buzzsaws at the top.
  • The trailer for the video game Portal shows a crushing ceiling (with spikes no less!) coming down to crush the character (while there are flames coming out of the pit next to you). In the video, the player simply fires a portal across the room, and one into the wall, and walks through it. The interesting thing about it is that there are no fires anywhere in the game except near the end, and there are no crushing ceilings — and none with spikes — anywhere in Portal. However, custom maps and mods that re-create cut content restore this, such as the Portal: The Flash Version Map Pack. Officially, Portal 2 includes fast Crushers.
  • Portal Runner: One of Leo's puzzles in the Medieval world dungeon is to hit four switches and then make for the exit before a spiked ceiling kills him.
  • Puzzle Bobble (Bust-A-Move) and PB 2 (BaM2) have a variant that pushes the stacked bubbles closer to the line at the bottom and threatens the player's character(s).
  • Radical Dreamers, the Japan-only semi-sequel to Chrono Trigger that was made obsolete by Chrono Cross, had a room trapped with a Descending Ceiling. Amusingly, the game used the same animation clip each time the player looked up to see it, giving the impression that the ceiling was falling almost onto them then teleporting back to the top when nobody was looking at it.
  • The original Rayman game features a level with an unusual variation on this trope, combining it with an inverse Rise to the Challenge. In it, the eponymous hero is trapped in a vertical tunnel, with two attached weights dragging down the ceiling above, and descending water below. The water is draining at a slightly slower rate than the ceiling's descent, so you need to have Rayman cut the weights from the ceiling to stop it from dragging him down into the water.
  • Resident Evil series:
    • The infamous "Jill Sandwich" moment. Notable in that it really was inescapable from within the room once it triggered. Either you had to replace the shotgun (whose absence on a wall rack triggered the trap) with a rusted one... or hope you were playing Jill for a conveniently timely rescue by Barry The Remake changes things a little bit: Jill still gets trapped in the room if she doesn't replace the shotgun with the broken shotgun, but if Chris doesn't place the broken shotgun, he can go back to the room and replace the shotgun itself — the door doesn't lock behind him.
    • Resident Evil 4 contains two rooms with a spiked ceiling, with four sensors that need to be shot out — this apparently tricks the ceiling into thinking it's hit the bottom, causing it to retract.
    • Resident Evil 5's "Lost in Nightmares" add-on, which was heavily influenced by the trap in the first game.
  • The captive Naoko faces one during the final battle of the Genesis The Revenge of Shinobi.
  • Rick Dangerous features a descending ceiling trap in two passageways of the Egpytian level.
  • Several levels in Serious Sam: The Second Encounter have crushing ceiling traps both of the "pillar" and "entire ceiling minus a few safe holes" variety. One of them, upon completion, treats the player to a round of applause.
  • Silent Hill series:
    • Used during the latter half of Silent Hill 3. During the Borley Haunted Mansion segment, the spiked-ceiling can fall and kill Heather — if the player avoids being killed by walking forward in a combat stance (she will be crouching slightly, just out of reach), the narrator of the mansion's tour promptly apologizes and assures the player that the contraption was not supposed to stop there.
    • Silent Hill 4 includes such a ceiling (a very fast one, to boot!) in one of the rooms on the upper floor of the hospital. These rooms are also randomized, so you never know which one is going to have the descending ceiling until you get there. Fortunately, it can't hurt you: a grating prevents it from going down the whole way, and the descending ceiling is mainly there to give you a quick scare.
  • Skies of Arcadia had an interesting subversion of this trope. One of the villains tries to crush Vyse and his crew beneath a spiked ceiling... but the mechanism to start the ceiling doesn't work.
  • The ceiling presses down (or the level rises up into the ceiling, it's a bit vague) in Marble Garden's second act in Sonic 3 & Knuckles, as well as the second act of Planet Wisp in the DS version of Sonic Colors. The latter of which occurs while Sonic is underground as a drill, in a bizarre twist.
  • One of these may spawn in Spelunky to punish the greedy, unprepared player in the later areas of the game. Hope you saved some bombs to blast free.
  • Super Mario Bros.:
    • Super Mario World: A few levels, such as Ludwig's Castle, Valley of Bowser 2, and corridor #5 in Bowser's Castle (with Spikes of Doom and Thwomps).
    • Mario Party 4: In the minigame Booksquirm, the characters are standing on a giant book, and the sheets from the other side begin turning onto them. These sheets have holes shaped like celestial objects, so the characters must stand in key positions to avoid getting crushed. When only one characters remains, they'll win the minigame; but if the last survivors get crushed at the same time, the minigame will end in a draw.
    • Mario Party 9: The minigame Smash Compactor places the players in a small room with a ceiling that periodically falls and crushes them. The goal is to drop down one of the holes that open in the floor to get to safety before the ceiling falls, but only one player can use each hole, and there are never enough holes for everyone, so at least one player is going to be unlucky and get Squashed Flat every time the ceiling falls.
    • In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, has a room like this in Hooktail's Castle, with one twist: the door remains easily opened, but a spiky maze prevents a straight run to it.
    • Super Paper Mario has a similar trap in Merlee's Mansion. You escape by jumping on top of the descending ceiling. And then again in the final level, after a battle with O'Chunks. This time, he and Bowser stay behind to hold it up while the rest of the heroes continue on.
  • In the Team Fortress 2 map "Egypt", there are antechambers between some defender respawn rooms and the map at large. Should players get trapped in there when the first point is lost, the ceiling will descend and crush them, prompting them to respawn in the fallback room.
  • Don't let the explorer get high enough to touch it in Tetris Plus.
  • Tomb Raider III. Along with the traditional descending Spikes of Doom in several areas, there's also the "drill of doom" in the Aldwych level.
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves features one that is defeated by shooting the teeth of the gears on a nearby wall, causing it to go in reverse.

    Web Animation 
  • One April Fool's short on Homestar Runner features Strong Bad using this "motivational tool" in the real world to "help" Strong Sad beat a tricky level in a video game.
    Strong Bad: You gotta beat this end boss or we're all gonna die! WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!

  • The trap-filled Castle Heterodyne in Girl Genius naturally have these. One squashes Dr. Silas Merlot and his mech after the portion of the castle he's in gets activated.

    Western Animation 
  • Code Lyoko: This is a staple of Sector 5 in Lyoko (along with rising floors and crushing walls). Poor Odd got squashed at least twice.
    Odd: (groans) Ever been flattened by a steamroller?
  • Dad'X: The cell that Foudror imprisons the elves in has a lowering spiked ceiling to have them "reduced to couscous".
  • DuckTales (1987): Seen in "Dime Enough For Luck". One of Magica's death traps involves a descending ceiling, threatening to crush Scrooge and the temporarily-unlucky Gladstone Gander.
  • Jonny Quest: The Real Adventures plays this deadly straight with a pair of scientists off-screen.
  • Inverted and double subverted on The Magic School Bus, when the class shrinks down and explores the bus's internal workings. Inside a piston chamber, they're afraid they'll be crushed when it moves upward, only to have it stop shy and move down again. They weren't in any danger from the piston ... but the bus itself is placed inside a car crusher in the very next scene.
    • Subverted in an episode with the floor rising. The class goes inside an undersea volcano and get stuck between the rising magma and a boulder blocking the exit. Their solution, get out and attempt to lift the boulder off.
  • Done in the Mega Man (Ruby-Spears) cartoon, complete with spikes. Unlike most examples, Mega was bound to the floor, unable to move as the ceiling descended. Luckily, the handcuffs weren't of the strongest material, which was made sillier by the fact that Wily left Mega Man in his base unattended.
  • The gang in Wakfu run into one of these on Wabbit Island.
  • WordGirl's villain Chuck the Evil Sandwich-Making Guy toys with a new evil lair, which includes one of these that almost leads to Wordgirl's demise.

    Real Life 
  • Horrifyingly happened in a wedding hall in Jerusalem back in 2001, when poor construction led to the floor collapsing during a wedding, killing 23 and injuring 380.
  • This is usually how people die in earthquakes: the roof falls down and crushes them.
