In your long (or short) life of watching media, what has been the scene that basically makes you say: “that did not just happen”, or “i can't believe this is going on”, or “please tell me that someone is going to wake up and this will just be a dream”. Pretty much along those lines. It can be from TV, Movies, anime, books, or whatever.

For me, it would have to be the last two episodes of the “Berserk” anime where,

Griffith somehow summons demons from hell, and in order to become one, he has to sacrifice his crew. Basically everyone dies; main characters and sub characters alike. In the end, the only ones remaining are Guts (the the main character) and Caska. The scene had everyone dying in terrible and horrific ways. Characters that you've grown to know and love for the last 20+ episodes are taken away in a instant. In the end, Griffith was ready to kill off everyone that trusted and loved him in order to get what he wanted.

So, anyone else got a scene like that. One that will probably stay with you for a long time?

P.S. Big shot out to Volte for making this spoiler code. I really wanted to make this thread, but didn't want to spoil a great series for anyone. Well done.

Yeah, the end of Watchmen and Volume 12 and 13 of Berserk are some of the greatest “Holy Crap” stuff in fiction.

Hmm…what else…
The ending the Death Note is fairly surprising I'd say.

The enitre last half hour of The Departed.

At the end of Saw 1 when the guy in the middle of the room gets up and walks away.

In the middle of Boondock Saints where…

… where “Funny Man” Rocco smashes his fist on the table, inadvertantly making his pistol fire and thus splattering that cat all over the wall!

I watched that scene like 5 times over and over before continuing on with the movie. I just didn't see that coming at all… it was so out of left field that I couldn't believe what I just saw. Perhaps it's the single funniest movie scene since Blazing Saddles and the “fart scene”.

Out of a pretty standard movie, I would have never guessed that John Travolta would take the bus airborne through the downtown Los Angeles in Swordfish.

When reading the ending of Watchmen
where that giant squid-like beast was placed and destroyed the city. I just didn't believe that was actually going to happen. But it did.. and I was stunned. Still great.

Also LOTS of scenes from Wild Things. Later on the movie, there are only just “OMG! I can't believe that just happened”-scenes. It was really full of suprises :)
And if there's one movie that should be in this topic than it would be Sixth Sense. I didn't see it comin AT ALL. The first time I watched it was a great experience.

Haha, oh yes, that was great :) Didn't see that coming either, how could anyone?

Also have to add the last scene of Chrno Crusade (since I just finished the anime). If my wife hadn't been around I would've cried my ass off. Thank goodness for beer's be-manly-quick power.

The annoying kid in Planet Terror from Grindhouse actually shooting his own head off about 10 seconds after his mother told him not to. Jesus, he was retarded!

Superman the movie - The helicoper scene.

I look back on it with such nostalgia now, but it was the coolest thing I had ever seen in my childhood.

Tons of Scenes in Elifn Lied…

The scene where those 8-year-old boys killed this puppy by beating it to death with an rock just so that they could enjoy the suffering of this young girl who had gotten attracted to that puppy. Pure evil!

And then that scene where this one guy revealed that his daughter was one of those horned beings, and carried her off to this bridge, wanting some time together with his daughter…. and He knew that she had an bomb implanted inside her by the oraginzation that he was working for. So He just held her close, apolized for letting the gorvenment oraginzation take her away, etc…. and that he really did love her no matter what. He was crying, because he knew what was going to happen, and you knew that he just wanted to die than to contuine working for the oraginzation.
then… BOOM!!! The bomb inside the young girl went off….the two of them got blown up in an huge explosison.
I'm on hitatus while I redo one of my webcomics. Be sure to check it out when I'n done! :)

Unfortunately, one of the curses of being a writer is that you usually know the way a story ends before you're halfway through. At least, that's the way it is for me. My brain is constantly working on the construction of the story. But, very-very rarely, there are still things that catch me by surprise; usually elements that have nothing to do with the outcome of the story itself, but are still “oh shit” moments.

There are only two that I can think of off the top of my head, and they're both thanks to the same creator:


Xander's eye.

and

Wash.

The scene in The Shining where Shelley Duvall sees the old guy and the guy dressed as the beaver in one of the rooms. It makes you say WTF and is disturbing at the same time.

Yea, I finished that anime a while ago myself. If I had to add a scene, it'd have to be the flashback of what happened to the main character's sister. I was all like “ dude, she's a liitle kid; this can't be shown on t.v., can it?”

Anything in Bobobo. Seriously. I can never guess what random direction it will turn next.
