* Zig-zagged in ''ComicBook/WhiteSand''. When Kenton is dehydrated and buried under sand, he's rescued by a passing caravan of Khriss and her entourage. However, Kenton is the "bedouin" of the setting, while Khrissalla and her men are the hapless tourists.

* Happens in ''[[Literature/EarthseaTrilogy The Farthest Shore]]'', when Ged is badly wounded and the heroes run out of water. They are stranded in the middle of the ocean, but fortunately, there is a tribe of [[OceanPunk nomadic raft dwellers]] who happen to pass nearby.

* In ''TheThrawnTrilogy'', Talon Karrde - the calm, information-brokering successor to Jabba the Hutt - is traversing space in his ship when he finds Luke Skywalker adrift in his X-Wing. He poses as this, agreeing to save and transport the Jedi for a small fee, and usually he'd be perfectly happy to do that, but Grand Admiral Thrawn has just put out word that Luke is adrift in this general area and there is a substantial reward. Karrde is generally honorable and doesn't like Thrawn, but he can't directly antagonize the head of Imperial forces - Thrawn is the absolute best at figuring out who did what. Karrde ends up imprisoning Luke so he can decide what to do, and things proceed from there.

* Subverted and lampshaded in ''MaiOtome'', where a foot traveler in the desert collapses in sight of a large, train-like vehicle passing by...which does not stop. The traveler leaps to their feet, complaining that they had planned on getting rescued so they wouldn't have to walk all the way to town.

* In ''Film/QuigleyDownUnder'' the heroes are left to die in the outback by the BigBad, but are rescued by a group of Aborigines and nursed back to health. Possibly justified, since they were later established to have a mole in the villain's employ.

** Vimes later rescues a native Klatchian... technically. The son of Mr. Gorif from back home, who had moved his family back to Klatch in order to escape anti-Klatchian sentiment, had been conscripted into the D'Reg army and sent into the desert to 'get' the Ankh-Morpork invaders. Side-switching ensues.
