*** TSS and its remakes are an example of this trope getting way out of hand. Jessica, Mia, and Fresca all end up sick and helpless during the Pao arc of the game, and their male significant others have to explore a dungeon without them to find the cure. Needless to say, UnfortunateImplications abound.

* In ''RuneFactory3'' [[spoiler:your fiance]] is kidnapped near the end of the game. This doesn't make her look bad since the one kidnapping her is [[spoiler:a super powerful dragon.]]

* The titular princess of ''VideoGame/{{Tsioque}}'' seems to be this as she's immediately captured and put in the castle dungeon. She [[{{Averted}} averts]] this by breaking out of the cage herself.

* Kaori plays this role in ''EienNoAselia'' despite theoretically having the same ass kicking potential as any stranger would. But she never even acquires a weapon and is instead held hostage for almost the entirety of the game by one person or another.

** Rosalina needs Mario's help to power her Starship in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', as Bowser made it lose all its power. Without him she would be stranded in space.



** Baby Luigi becomes this in the ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'' games. One of the babies helping Yoshi save him in the DS game is in fact Baby Peach!
** Mario ''himself'' is the damsel in ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'' and ''VideoGame/SuperPrincessPeach'' (and the non-canon ''Mario is Missing'').
** Averted in ''Yoshi's Safari'' where Princess Peach isn't kidnapped for once. Instead, she tasks Mario with saving a prince and a king in a neighboring kingdom where they were invaded and captured by Bowser and his minions.

* ''{{VideoGame/Persona 4}}'' makes liberal use of this trope and {Distressed Dude}, with each kidnapped victim being one of the primary motivations for entering the TV world in the first place.

*** Rise Kujikawa, like Yukiko, appears to be the epitome of this trope at first; that is, until her Shadow is defeated by Teddie's {HeroicSecondWind} and she obtains her Persona. Moments later, ''Teddie'''s Shadow appears, and is ready to wipe the floor with the party until the exhausted and newly freed Rise steps up to provide analysis and support to the party (which was originally Teddie's job). Her S. Link revolves around her conflicted feelings about her career as an idol: she hates being the ditzy pop star, but she is reminded of just how inspirational she is to many of her fans (including her replacement, Kanami).
**** And then she becomes a playable character in ''VideoGame/Persona4ArenaUltimax''.
*** Averted most prominently with [[spoiler: Naoto]], whose skills as an ''AceDetective'' are
