7 Times You Thought You Were Safe But How Wrong You Were

Happy never after

After a final battle with the forces of evil, there's usually an enormous sense of relief. But that moment when you let your guard down is also the moment when you're most vulnerable being suddenly sucker-punched - by the likes of Shadows of the Damned, Soulcalibur 3 and Donkey Kong Country. Witness these sobering lessons and more in the following video.

Take Colossus in Soulcalibur 3, for instance: a gigantic foe in the game's Tale of Souls mode who is made of solid stone and devastating power.

If you can avoid getting booted in the face by his size 114 feet for long enough to chip his health down to zero, you can bask in the glory of a well-earned victory against Colossus.

Unless you're standing directly in front of him at the time, that is, in which case he will fall on top of you, instantly killing you and winning the match by default. Unlucky.
