The hero makes it plain that they value the life of their LoveInterest more than foiling the EvilPlan, even if this leads to large scale destruction. It can come about as the result of a SadisticChoice, only having enough time to rescue one person out of several, or whatever other requirements the plot puts in their way and plainly making a decision.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Guts only cares about one thing aside from slicing monsters apart and that is former love of his life and former Hawks Captain Casca. While their first meeting was hostile, after Casca grudgingly [[IntimateHealing keeps his body]] warm with her own, Guts forms strong feelings for her. He was more than ready to fall off a cliff with her and had no qualms blocking arrows shot at her [[TakingTheBullet with his body]], it's these acts that ultimately cause Casca to fall for him, as she claimed no man had ever shed blood for her in battle before. Guts goes above and beyond protecting her, [[GroinAttack brutally]] defending her from violating monsters and going near when he couldn't save her from Griffith in the [[{{Mordor}} Eclipse]] Guts becomes bourderline insane.

Guts saves his now insane Casca from being [[spoiler: [[BurnTheWitch burned at the stake as a witch]] by Bishop Mozgus [[TortureTechnician and his henchmen]], who are being backed by all of the citizens [[GullibleLemmings who blindly follow whatever he says just to save themselves from damnation]]. They want to burn her because they think she is responsible for the influx of monsters and evil spirits around St. Albion and, technically they're correct, since the Brand of the Sacrifice on Casca's breast attracts evil spirits that are nearby.]] Guts doesn't really give a damn about what will happen [[TheDeterminator so long as he and Casca survive at the end of it all.]] He tells Mozgus and the refugees to suck it up and deal with it.

* In the ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' reboot, it's revealed that [[EvilINC Ultratech]] was founded by a man named Ryat Adams. Most of his research, including the creation of ARIA, was dedicated to trying to save his wife from disease. Tragically this failed, and ARIA took over the company after his own demise.

** MasterSwordsmen Zoro has rescued female crewmates on multiple occasions but doesn't make a huge and song dance out of it because he has absolutely no interest in romance, only in being "the best swordsmen" HeroesPreferSwords. But the big exception to this mindset is Marine Captain and beautiful Swordswoman [[The Squadette Tashigi]] [[spoiler: who just so happens to be identical to Zoro's dead childhood friend Kuina, small world huh?]] Zoro was unable to fight her without a FreakOut and opted (like Sanji for most evil ladies) to avoid her all together. This was made difficult as Tashigi assumed Zoro had gone easy on because she was a woman, humiliated Tashigi vowed to beat Zoro chasing him across Grand Line with her Superior Smoker. When they met again after two years, Zoro had got over her appearance and "seemed" indifferent towards Tashigi who still called him out on being sexist, saying that he was holding back when they were fighting the evil harpy Monet. Zoro tired her accusations sat out of the fight and watched while Tashigi struggled against the powerful foe, when she was about to die Zoro stepped in and saved her as he couldn't stand watching her suffer, slicing the harpy in half and letting Tashigi finish her off. Zoro even carried her out of the room on his shoulder (which is rare for him).
