Default "Holy crap, it's a Space Marine!"

So I was playing Dead Space 2 earlier today, because I enjoy being scared out of my mind. Sitting there, aiming my flashlight into dark corners, praying that nothing jumped down behind me from the vents overhead, sweating just a little because of how low on ammo I was...I suddenly thought, "God, I really wish an Ultramarine would just crash through the wall over there and start laying waste to the necromorphs with a boltgun and power claw."

This of course got me thinking about other games, stories and movies where it'd be awesome/hilarious if, out of nowhere, the Imperium suddenly showed up to save the day. If you could pick a movie/game/book/TV show, what would it be? How exactly would it all go down?

In the end of Modern Warfare 2, Crimson Fists Dreadnought comes out of nowhere and crushes Shepherd. Best. Ending. Ever.

Win/loss record for The Fists of Vengeance- 20 - 1 - 8.
Hive Fleet Kraken- 7 - 2
The Unnamed Clan- 0 - 0 - 0

During the very last level of Halo: Reach, when you're all surrounded and cut off...a squad of BA Terminators teleports into the middle of it and just butchers the Elites.

See, I'd see it as just the very beginning of an all out Imperial assault against the Covenant. Scarab vs. Imperator Titan? Not much of a contest I don't think.

Covenant vs. The Imperium of man? Fuck, no contest...

It would be cool in Halo 2 when you see that huge Covenant fleet and High Charity in space if suddenly from nowhere came a fucking Imperial fleet and began ass raping it.

Battle royale. If a squad of termies turned up anywhere in this film i'm pretty sure the japanese military would have their work cut out.

Nah, they could probably bloody up the imperial fleet a bit. Covenant ships are fucking ace. Covi supper carriers might be larger than any battle ship the imperium has.
