** In a season 1 episode, after Aang hides a map to where Katara and Sokka's father (the chieftain of their tribe) is located, he feels guilty and admits the truth. Sokka gets angry and Katara gets disappointed in him, and they leave him behind. But after they hear how Bato (their father's friend) ended up in the same position Aang was in, they decide to find Aang again and apologize.
** In a season 2 episode, Toph and Katara get into a fight (lack of sleep can do that to you), and Aang tries to settle things down between them. That is, until Toph insults Appa and says that the reason the Fire Nation is following them is because of Appa's shedding fur, and Aang loses his cool with her. Because of this, Toph leaves the group and meets up with Iroh, whose time she spent with convinces her to return to the team.

** Same can be for Zuko, who briefly leaves his uncle Iroh behind at a hot spring in season 1. When he ends up getting captured by Earth Kingdom soldiers, he has to [[FriendOrIdolDecision choose between pursuing Aang or rescuing Iroh]], and he chooses the latter in a cool BigDamnHeroes moment.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' does this in one episode. Bubbles gets humongous glasses and is teased by her sisters until she flies away, sobbing. Turns out that they need to her to fight a giant ant, and while Blossom and Buttercup's heat vision isn't strong enough, Bubbles' sure is when it's magnified 10 fold by her glasses, killing the monster and saving the day.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' lampooned this with the exterminators in season 2 ep 17. One of them, named Logan, is having an emotional breakdown because his family was carried off by fire ants. But he shows up just in time to save his fellow exterminators from a flea infestation. Please note that instead of being "exterminators" with insecticides, they're basically a bunch of soldiers with guns and body armor. Also please not that the "Rescue" was shooting one single flea that was approaching three heavily armored men.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'': Cornelia quits when the team fails to protect her best friend, Elyon Brown, from the bad guys. Without the full team, everybody else's powers are weakened (which strangely didn't happen the last time the girls had to send a partial team), and new monsters attack who Cornelia's powers would have been perfect for. She inevitably snaps out of her funk in time to save everybody. This turned out to be a turning point, giving Cornelia real CharacterDevelopment for the first time.

* ''Anime/SamuraiPizzaCats'' had an episode like this (No Talent Guido). Speedy and Polly get contracts for a singing career, leaving Guido feeling left out. The MonsterOfTheWeek attacks Little Tokyo while Speedy and Polly are recording a song. Guido refuses to fight, saying that maybe he had better things to do, too. Francine sends the rescue team to fight the monster. They do well until [[ThePsychoRangers the Rude Noise engage them.]] Guido finally snaps out of it, when he sees the rescue team get blown away. Just as Speedy gets his ass kicked and Polly is reduced to DamselInDistress Guido makes his grand entrance, dispatches the ninja crows in a cooly excecuted FoeTossingCharge and finishes off the monster in what is considered to be his CrowningMomentOfAwesome. This also served to give Guido some actual CharacterDevelopment, showing him grow from simply a HandsomeLech to a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': '70s Charles Xavier gives up on his powers and his role as the leader of mutants, and refuses to cooperate with Wolverine; without his aid, the entire venture is impossible. He's got more [[JustifiedTrope justified reasons]] than in most examples of the trope.

* The Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse featured Garm Bel Iblis, a founder of the Rebellion who left when he felt it was risking becoming a dictatorship, feeling that replacing the Emperor with an Empress wouldn't be an improvement. After realizing his folly, he returns but refuses to take command of the fleet, even while they're being attacked, by an enemy commander that only he is skilled enough to match. He finally gives in after speaking with Mon Mothma.
