Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (2013) (Video Game)
An ongoing theme until the end of the movie was Leroy Green's inability to beat Sho'Nuff until the climax of the movie. Leroy repeatedly has his head dunked in a tub of water by his arch-nemesis, causing him to have flashbacks of his martial arts master, and his love interest cryptically telling Leroy that he's actually a martial arts master, giving him the self-confidence to defeat Sho'Nuff. In the ending sequence of the game, Rex is unable to kill Sloan due to his programming. During this moment, Rex has a flashback of Dr. Elizabeth Darling's message reminding him of his human quality, allowing him to override his programming and defeat Sloan.
