* ''Fanfic/LePapillonRising'' Adrien somehow gives Marinette magical immunity to the akumas. And doesn't give this to anyone else. Because he's obsessed with her from pretty much the moment he sees her. This may be a case of AuthorAppeal.

* ''Comicbook/WarWorld'' Played with this. Alien tyrant Mongul threatens with killing several friends of Franchise/{{Superman}} -Comicbook/LoisLane, Comicbook/JimmyOlsen and Steve Lombard- if the Man of Steel does not bring him a key which would allow him appropiate Warworld, a immensely powerful weapon. Superman plays along, waiting for a chance to save his friends and thwart Mongul, even though Comicbook/MartianManhunter warns him that he is putting countless lives on the line for three persons. Unfortunately Superman cannot trick Mongul and has to choose between giving the Key to the galactic despot and letting his friends die. He decides he cannot bring himself to hand over the key.

** Sanji is especially protective over the ship's navigator and fellow pirate Nami, nearly always being first to rescue her if she's in trouble. This includes: throwing her (and Luffy) out of the way a avalanche (damaging his spine as a result), jumping in the way of a lighting blast aimed for her TakingTheBullet. But Sanji's example of this moment was when she's kidnapped by the invisible pervert Absalom [[spoiler: who also spied on her bathing]] Nami was forced into being his bride (classic AndNowYouMustMarryMe trope) but before Absalom can seal the vow with a unwanted kiss, Sanji bursts in and sweeps Nami off her feet and then proceeded to give Absalom a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown for his actions towards her. Absalom backs down by turning invisible and using DirtyCoward tactics, Sanji holds Nami above his head to protect her as he receives a beating. Then Absalom stabs him in the shoulder and surprisingly Sanji drops Nami but only because he doesn't want to spoil her wedding dress with his blood. Absalom makes one more move on Nami but Sanji (whose sick of his crap) sends him the invisible perv smashing into a wall.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Main hero Cloud Strife will often act indifferent but if there's a young woman in danger, he will rush to her rescue the game will make the Cloud(the player) choose between ChildhoodSweetheart Tifa Lockheart and SmittenTeenageGirl Aerith as they both get in danger at certain points in the game and Cloud must come to the rescue.[[spoiler: unfortunately for players who were interested in Aerith, the BigBad Sephiroth comes in and ruins any hopes of romance with Aerith as she is ImpaledwithExtremePrejudice by him, those players who chose Tifa get a romantic scene between her and Cloud before the final battle]].
** In a FlashBack, Tifa made Cloud promise if she was in any danger, he'd come back and save her. Cloud keeps his promise, when Tifa is knocked out by Sephiroth Cloud takes her to safety and then goes to fight Sephiroth. In the anime Special " The Last Order" this scene is expanded with Tifa briefly waking and reuniting with Cloud, she's overjoyed that he'd kept his promise, this touching moment is interrupted by a pissed off Sephiroth.

** Nami tries to return the favour to Sanji best she can, avenging him when he was defeated by the FemmeFatale Assassin Kalifa [[spoiler: because Sanji refuses to hurt any women]]. Nami refused his order to run away when he was fighting Domflamingo the BigBad saying she "couldn't leave him" and when Sanji was forced to leave the crew [[spoiler: and into a arranged marriage]] Nami went with Luffy to go rescue him like how Sanji rescued her in a similar scenario.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}'' has this crop up a lot, since various antagonists have a tendency to capture or threaten Lydia. They frequently learn the hard way not to get between an overpowered ghost and his living MoralityChain. Occasionally, though, the trope is fulfilled in ways that don't involve a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on the offending parties; for example, in one episode, she's taken as "collateral" to make him pay his credit card bills, and after maybe ten seconds of deliberation he decides to return all the stuff he bought so he can get her back.

* Belldandy in ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' makes it clear she puts Keiichi's life ahead of all others, once allowing the cutting of the Universal superstring rather than killing him when he is possessed by the Lord of Terror, ends up taking the third option to save the day.

* Heavily implied during the RoaringRampageOfRescue in ''Fanfic/{{Cinderjuice}}''. BJ's UnstoppableRage over his MoralityChain being kidnapped scares his ''allies''. The sequel confirms that he would have destroyed everything around him had the rescue efforts failed.

* In ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', Indy offers to let the Nazis keep the Ark in exchange for Marion, threatening to destroy the Ark if they don't comply. Belloq calls his bluff (as an archeologist, Indy can't bring himself to destroy the Ark, even to keep it out of the Nazis' hands) and Indy gets captured.

* In ''Film/TheThreeMusketeers2011'', this is DoubleSubverted. D'Artagnen is at first reluctantly willing to ignore Constance (who has been captured by the villains) and continue with their mission, saying that the fate of France is more important. Athos urges him to save her, or else he will save France only to become a lonely and bitter man like him after he lost Milady de Winter. The Musketeers then save her.

* In one arc of the '90s' ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' series, time-travelers kill the young Professor X, resulting in a [[BadFuture Bad Present]] where all mutants are constantly at war with the Sentinels... and the [[FutureBadass Future Even-More-Badass]] Storm and Wolverine are married. When Bishop comes from the future to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong, Wolverine initially refuses to help, somehow knowing that fixing the past would prevent him and Storm from getting together. When Bishop straight up asks if Wolverine is really willing to allow the devastating war to happen so he can be with Storm, Wolverine says yes without hesitation. After things are set right, there are hints that they both realize something happened, but nothing comes of it.

* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'':
** Accelerator doesn't care if you're an angel, an esper, or the entire world's militaries combined; he won't let ''anything'' happen to Last Order.
** There's also Touma, who will help anyone in need. Usually this help involves punching someone in the face. While everything around him is exploding. During one arc, several factions are trying to capture, rescue, or kill Orsola Aquinas due to her supposed knowledge of The Book Of Law. When Touma rescues her, she is surprised and charmed to find that he didn't care about the knowledge at all. He was the only person who cared about ''her''.
