* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV: The Ties that Bind'' OVA: [[spoiler:Sakura Kasugano gives one to Ryu when he falls under the influence of his SuperpoweredEvilSide, the infamous Evil Ryu.

* Marona does this in ''PhantomBrave'' [[spoiler:whenever Sprout is in danger of succumbing to the darkness and losing control. The last time she does it, it nearly fails, but gives him enough time for a HeroicSacrifice to prevent his full power being used for the revival of Sulphur.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' has a memorable one in the trip to [[BeachEpisode Yakushima Island]], where [[{{Tsundere}} Yukari Takeba]] has a breakdown and storms off after the party is shown a video implicating her [[DisappearedDad father]] in the creation of [[TheHeartless the shadows]] they're fighting. The MC is sent off to calm her down and bring her back, and giving her one of these is one option in the ensuing conversation.

* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'''s Maxwell Crowe does this to a suicidal Maria Graham after chucking the broken glass shard she was going to do herself in with. This not only functions as a cooldown hug, but also prevents her from just pulling on her [[ExplosiveLeash explosive collar]] and killing herself that way.
* Subverted in the WhateleyUniverse: in "Ayla and the Mad Scientist", Team Kimba is running Dark Phoenix simulations in the school holographic simulator. When it's time for [[PersonOfMassDestruction Tennyo]] to play Dark Tennyo, Generator insists on trying a CooldownHug first. She gets disintegrated for her efforts but it gives her teammates a chance to put four tranquilizer darts in Tennyo's backside.

* A variation in ''CriticalRole'': during the Whitestone arc, when Percy's [[spoiler: literal]] demons start to manifest, Vex'ahlia coaxes him out of his fury while holding his hand. Given that Percy had previously been implied to [[HatesBeingTouched dislike physical contact]] and was turning into smoke at the time, keeping her distance was probably a wise move.
