Any time the heroes get to save the day in a big, awesome manner.
Say that the poor Distressed Damsel is looking her Fate Worse Than Death dead in the face, and is resigned to it, because she knows that Nothing Can Save Us Now...and then, boom! The heroes kick down the door and proceed to stomp the bad guys into the ground.
A Ragtag Bunch of Misfits will often have a Misfit Mobilization Moment before becoming the Big Damn Heroes. If they were busy with something else, but saw the crisis and dropped whatever they were doing in order to save the day, it's a case of Dudley Do-Right Stops to Help.
Often this can involve Gunship Rescue, I Got You Covered, Horseback Heroism, Roaring Rampage of Rescue, Just in Time, or even Changed My Mind, Kid. The Distressed Domina (who never needs rescuing until she faces down The Dragon or The Big Bad) is a common recipient.
If the heroes just finished a training arc and show off new powers, it's Look What I Can Do Now!.
