If not in a desert, substitute: friendly NobleSavage natives on the American plains or in the jungle, Sherpas or Buddhist monks in the mountains, Aborigines in Australia, Inuit or Aleuts in the frozen north, or Bushmen in South Africa. In SpeculativeFiction, any FantasyCounterpartCulture for the above can fill in. Any of these groups may try to teach the hero something as he recovers. For shipwrecked people in the ocean, native fishermen or dolphins might pitch in.

Note that actual aloof, practical, eccentric but ultimately noble bedouins in modern settings have been supplanted in pop culture and the minds of western audience by Kalashnikov-waving insurgents or Mujahadeen, for however accurate or inaccurate that might be. Also, notice that this trope [[TruthInTelevision has its roots on real life]]: since in harsh environments a person never knows when they might fall in need of help, it is in society's interest to have such a code.

* Subverted in ''Film/TheFlightOfThePhoenix1965'', the nomads prove to be hostile.

* Subverted in ''Film/TheFlightOfThePhoenix1965'', the nomads prove to be hostile. It's suggested these particular Bedouins are outcasts manning a raiding party, and therefore more likely to be malevolent.

* Interestingly treated in ''TheProposition'': Charlie, while on a mission into the Australian Outback to kill [[CainAndAbel his brother]], gets "speared by a savage! How extraordinarily quaint!" The rescue service comes in the form of... his brother. Awkward.

* At the end of the DCU's ''InfiniteCrisis'', all that's left of the robot Red Tornado is a head that can only say [[ArcWords "52!"]] which lands in Australia. He is not only found by aboriginals, but taken to an auto repair shop/metalworking studio where the local welder attempts to build him a new body.

* The British military (and probably others) has a policy of issuing aircrew or Special Forces with a couple of thousand dollars in gold bullion, and sometimes a note in the local language to the effect of "Bring this person back to the nearest Army camp alive and we will give you a very large amount of money", just in case honour alone is insufficient.

* Some testimonies of people who survived the Armenian Genocide explain that Bedouins had rescued (and even adopted) some Armenians who had escaped the death marches, mostly children.
