* Reversed in TheElenium books by Creator/DavidEddings, where it was the protagonist who tried to rebuff a few different characters. In particular, he attempted to leave the foundling child Flute at a convent, to be looked after by the nuns, only to have her show up a short time later. This made a lot more sense once it was revealed that [[spoiler:Flute was actually the Child-Goddess Aphrael]]. He also tried to rebuff the young thief Talen once or twice, because he felt the adventure was too dangerous for him, only to have Talen show up anyway - once by his own doing, once [[spoiler:coerced by Aphrael, who wanted him there]].
* In the Literature/{{Discworld}} novels, the best way to get Susan, Death's adoptive granddaughter, involved is to tell her not to get involved. Doubled, in that she often complains loudly that any adventure that concerns an animated skeleton - or, if you prefer, an Anthropomorphic Personification - is of its nature ridiculous and illogical and something no intelligent person should involve herself in. Yet, oddly enough, Death always makes sure she knows something is going on with which she had better not bother involving herself in - and it never works. The film adaptation of ''Hogfather'' implies that Death does this because he ''knows'' that this will cause Susan to involve herself.

* In ''{{MAR}}'', the main character jumps at the call, but is rebuffed twice by Alviss, who ends up being his strongest ally after proper training, while [[{{Mentors}} Alan]], immediately takes him under his wing and brings him up to the level he needs to be at to start off the journey. [[spoiler:Probably because Alan went through the process previously, with Ginta's father, and knows how it will play out.]]

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Rose and Mickey are refused by the Ninth Doctor before they're allowed to travel with him. Furthermore, the Fourth rebuffed Leela.
** The First kept trying to ditch Ian and Barbara at every opportunity, at first.

** The Fourth Doctor originally rebuffed Leela; the last words we hear in the episode that introduced her are the Doctor shouting at Leela not to touch that button after she's slipped inside the TARDIS.

* ''ShinkonGattaiGodannar'': The resident Loli Lou Roux is always eager to get into battle, to satisfy her [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge hatred towards the Mimetic Beasts that killed her father]]. But since she's JustAKid, they never let her get into battle, not even train for it, even though she's a naturally talented pilot. Eventually, [[spoiler:she rebelled, trained under the loner Ken, and struck out on her own. In the end, she's already a full-fledged pilot capable of fighting Mimetic Beasts on her own]].

Added DiffLines:

** This is the best way to get Vimes involved, as well. The Patrician resorts to it quite often. (It did backfire once, though.)

* In ''ShikabaneHime'', Ouri is apparently attracted to death (non-sexually), which explains why he's always unintentionally showing up around Makina (a Shikabane Hime similar to ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'''s shinigami) and getting involved in her fights. As you might expect from the trope description, Makina gets pissed at him every time he shows up, though he later [[spoiler: becomes her new Contracted Monk]].

* In episode 1 of ''{{Grenadier}}'', the samurai Yatchan tries more than once to get TheDitz with the large breasts to leave and get away from what is a warzone. Then she saves his life (more than once) and takes out an entire castle full of armed soldiers with a six-shooter, an UnorthodoxReload, and some serious GunKata.
