Action Film, Quiet Drama Scene

  • Pre-Battle Banter is the subtrope for the "subdued joking around and encouragement" form.

See also Darkest Hour, Line in the Sand, If We Get Through This..., It Has Been an Honor, Pre-Sacrifice Final Goodbye, If I Do Not Return, and numerous other tropes for the various other components that you mention. Index of Goodbyes and Last Words are a good place to start for those, and most are part of the setup for Dying Moment of Awesome tropes.

Also see also The Hero's Journey- the last big afqds (or set of them) is an important transition step between the main story and the final revelations and confrontations.

Yes, which is why it has been created: Action Film, Quiet Drama Scene and its subtrope Pre-Battle Banter

The rest I listed are moments that can happen within or surrounding that period of calm before the storm.


How well does it match the trope?
