Just when you thought it was all over

Depending on the style of the story you are writing, it is sometimes possible to add even more impact to the tale by reviving the monster just long enough for one last attack.

The central character has fought and vanquished his foe and is feeling justifiably euphoric. Nothing can harm him now, the town/city/world is saved and life is rapidly returning to normal.

Just when you thought it was all over, however, whatever grisly being is left after our hero has finished with it hauls itself painfully back from the dead and makes one last, usually unsuccessful, lunge towards him.
