* In ''CorpseParty'', Ayumi and Yoshiki [[spoiler:are returned to the classroom by one of the ghost children as thanks for returning her tongue]]. Ayumi wants to [[spoiler:go back and save their surviving friends]]. Yoshiki, if you choose to object (or [[spoiler:allow Yuka to be caught by Kizami]]) will do so and Ayumi will [[spoiler:return alone after an argument]]. Yoshiki, however, is [[ConscienceMakesYouGoBack reminded of how much his friends mean to him]] and [[spoiler:begs the ghost girl to send him back]]. When [[spoiler:he ''is'' sent back, he sends Ayumi a text to let her know he's there]]. It still leads to a Wrong End, though.

** In ''[[TheThrawnTrilogy Dark Force Rising]]'', a New Republic force is scheduled to head out after the reported location of the Katana Fleet in the morning. Since there's little time and it's headed by [[DividedWeFall Borsk Fey'lya]], the heroes send out their own force in the middle of the night; in the morning Fey'lya follows, planning to arrest them for treason. Those plans are cut short when the two New Republic forces are ambushed by an Imperial Star Destroyer. The first force flies a delaying action while Fey'lya's force flees, but Fey'lya is lured into an EngineeredPublicConfession, turning his allies against him and making them go back. The heroes still needed two more groups of BigDamnHeroes and two cases of RammingAlwaysWorks before they won the battle, although [[YouAreTooLate they were too late]].

* Hiei from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' leaves the rest of the team during the Chapter Black arc, claiming he has no loyalty to the human world and would like to go home. Yusuke assures everyone else that [[GenreSavvy "he'll come and rescue us in the end when we need him the most"]], and he does. This makes perfect sense as, while Hiei 'joined the team' because backing up the Spirit Detective was his parole assignment, the reason he actually ''joined the team'' and saved their lives back in Maze Castle on the first mission was that Yusuke, against all forms of sanity, trusted him to do so. [[AFatherToHisMen There's something about that confidence you just don't want to let down.]]
