** The episode ''Caesarion'' begins with Cleopatra in mortal danger, about to be killed by her brother-husband Ptolemy XIII. Just as the Nubian executioner sent to kill the queen is about to do his work, Titus Pullo storms in and brutally kills him instead.
** The very first episode has Vorenus and Pullo slaughter a group of Gauls who have captured Octavian and are using him as a slave. While they're not ''trying'' to save Octavian, per se, it is clear that Octavian sees them as this - especially Pullo.

* ''{{Psych}}'': "Big Damn Heroes" is Lassiter and Juliet's standby mode. Listing all the times they've kicked down doors with guns at the ready to rescue Shawn and Gus from the villain of the week (sometimes more than once in a single episode) would cover at least 1/3 of all episodes ever aired. The duo is usually together during these moments, although both Lassie and Jules have pulled off a handful of solo BDH's too.
* ''{{Raven}}'': Pulls one of these at the ending of ''The Secret Temple''. About [[InformedAbility bloody time too]].
