** In ''VideoGames/SonicTheHedgehog2006'', Rouge was captured early on in Shadow's story. Subverted as she managed to get out before Shadow could rescue her, (though she sounds as if she wanted to be rescued when Shadow does find her.). In the same game, one of the trials for Silver involve him rescuing Blaze from some enemies within a time frame.

* Bakuda ends up as this several times in ''Fanfic/HowToDrillYourWayThroughYourProblems'', despite being an inventive, clever, and somewhat egotistical MadBomber. Lagann first meets her rescuing her from a burning building, then after she's just been badly burned by Lung, and then a third time when Lung escalates enough to begin dismantling the Bakuda Bomber.

* Matilda is an example of this in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden''. Due to everyone in that game automatically having a weapon regardless of what's in their inventory, the battle starts off with her killing the archers who are supposed to execute her, as the player begins advancing towards the fort she's captured in.
