There must be a TVTropes term/entry...

... for the phenomenon in videogames in which the characters are in trouble, a new character (or one they've occasionally encountered before in mysterious circumstances) intervenes and blows away the monstrous opposition with an incredibly cool power/attack, and then this cool guy joins the party...

... and is now probably weaker than your main characters. If you encountered NOW the thing that he beat ten minutes ago, it'd hand ALL of your asses to you on a silver platter on a bed of parsley, with Mr. Cool Attack being the first one to go.

I can't seem to figure out what they would call it, though. Any help?
