* In the early days of ''{{Spider-Man}}'', Betty Brant and Gwen Stacy would serve this role. Then it was notoriously subverted in the 1973 ''[[{{Spider-Man}} Amazing Spider-Man]]'' story ''ComicBook/TheNightGwenStacyDied'', in which archvillain the Green Goblin kidnaps Spidey's girlfriend, Spidey goes to rescue her... and she dies, turning from Gwen Stacy into [[TheGwenStacy * The* Gwen Stacy]].

* Heavily subverted with Jadina from [[ComicBook/LesLegendaires Les Légendaires]]; her typical SpoiledSweet attitude, natural clumsyness and the fact she's a princess seems to make her designed for this role, and [[TheHero Danael]] even mentionned she has been this at least once; however, she never falls into that role, and actually ''is'' the one saving her friends most of the time, sometimes even doing so when weakened. This reaches its paroxysm in Book 14, where [[spoiler:after she got temporary depowered and had her friends saving her, but still saves her friends from the new BigBad Abyss, who none of her friend could even scratch. And all of this while still depowered. Wow.]]
