* ''Webcomic/WhiteDarkLife'' has [[Anime/SonicX Cosmo]] get captured constantly by Dark Matt purely to spite the regular Matt(her guardian angel). Of course given that these plans are [[spoiler:[[ThePowerOfHate actually just tricks to get the two to hate Dark Matt and extend his "lifeforce"]]]] and thus, not always thought that far out, results in Cosmo being more than capable of [[DamselOutOfDistress just walking out of trouble]].

** The trope gets played straighter in the roleplays, but only on occasion. Notable examples include "Dark Matt Bio" [[note]]Tulip, then Lindsay[[/note]], "A rare moment indeed" [[note]]Daisy, then Peach (and later Felicia), then Cassandra, then Lindsay (sort of)[[/note]], "Fatty vs. Fairy" [[note]]Lindsay[[/note]], "And that's why he shakes" [[note]]first Tulip, then Annie and Sonja, then Lara-Le[[/note]], "Drunk Driving with Tora" [[note]]Tulip[[/note]], "Boar Bio" [[note]]too many to count -- the antagonists are a [[SexSlave sexual slavery ring]], that should say plenty[[/note]] "Professional Apologizer" [[note]]Lydia; this is the roleplay where it gets played straightest, due to the second half being an {{homage}} to ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaHarmonyOfDissonance''[[/note]], "Blindly Fooling Thyself" [[note]]Memori[[/note]], "Inu & Uma Bio" [[note]]Dream, then (briefly) Lillian, then Miriam[[/note]], "Flight Formation" [[note]]attempted on Ivy -- [[DamselOutOfDistress key word being "attempted"]][[/note]], and "Growing Pains in the Neck" [[note]]Leila[[/note]].

* ''{{Exiern}}'' has Peonie as the recipient of the frequent kidnapping card. Although it wasn't the first or the last time, it seems that EvilSorcerer Faden was the nastiest as she complained "I was really scared ''this'' time". She hasn't managed to stop other people targeting her for an abduction yet though, and Tiff can generally tell what time it is by whether Peonie has been kidnapped yet or not.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': Discussed in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0482.html this strip]]: Haley is in trouble and Elan wants to rush off to rescue her. However, Durkon stops him, explaining that she is able to take care of herself. And that he is not. If he try to rescue her, he will just get himself killed, and that would make her very sad once she gets back on her own. Elan is forced to leave Haley to her fate. [[spoiler:And yes, she does save herself. And Belkar. And Roy's corpse, so it can be resurrected later.]]
