*** Mirage manages to do this ''twice'' more in episode 13 - the first time by grabbing Hayate and taking him to safety after he ejects, and the second time by stopping Freja's freefall.

* ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'': Minmay falls from Hikaru's Valkyrie during the attack on South Ataria Island, and Hikaru not only does a power dive to save her, but manages to open the jet canopy, pull her in, close the canopy, and pull up in time.
** This was referenced in a similar scene in the new series, ''Anime/MacrossFrontier''. Said homage is slightly modified in that Ranka wasn't falling, but she was being pulled ''up'' into the vacuum of space due to a shattered dome, thus she was in danger of ending up ThrownOutTheAirlock.

* ''Film/TerminatorSalvation''. Marcus Wright drives a truck onto a bridge over a high canyon, but they're attacked by a flying Hunter Killer and the truck slams through the guardrail, knocking Kyle Reese and another child out the door. As they plunge into the canyon to their deaths, they're caught in mid-air by the giant robot they'd been fleeing earlier. So their lives have been saved...[[FateWorseThanDeath for the short term]].

** Superman (again) does it to Batman (again) after the Batplane is eaten by alien nanomachine dogs and his ejection seat is destroyed. Fortunately, Batman is GenreSavvy enough to know he's got time and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Unl8l8VdONw calmly calls for help over the radio]].
