* ColdEquation: Bud and Lindsey are trapped underwater with one set of breathing equipment, which Bud is already wearing. Bud offers the gear to Lindsey, which would doom him. Lindsey presents what she calls "the logical option", which gives ''both'' of them a chance of survival: she drowns, and Bud drags her body to safety, and hopes she can be revived. Bud is the stronger swimmer, so Lindsey has to drown. Bud's initial response is "Fuck logic!", but he soon comes round.

* AngelicAliens: [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_60A8zsWp2jY/TNubBs5NYvI/AAAAAAAAAis/t7iSq2y_Bik/s1600/Abyss_NTI_being.jpg The aliens inhabiting the eponymous abyss]], who are an aquatic version of this. They are able to [[MakingASplash manipulate water]] and are, for the most part, benign and pacifistic, protecting the lives of humans on multiple occasions. However, they show themselves as a species not to be messed with when they threaten to annihilate human civilization with massive tidal waves if they don't cease their warlike ways.

** Made more tragic by the moments when you see him seemingly starting to come out of the psychosis, such as when he's alone in the pod bay and [[spoiler:right before the pod he's in implodes from the pressure]].
