* In the [[AllThereInTheManual manga chapter]] of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' that features the Lightning Squad, it's revealed that his time in the [[ArtificialHuman illegal research facility]] left Erio very emotionally unstable and distrustful of everyone. When she was about to adopt him, Fate does this to Erio during one of his bouts of anger after he burns her hands.

-->-- '''Gir''', ''WesternANimation/InvaderZim''

In fiction, the best way to calm down someone having a SuperPowerMeltdown or having their BerserkButton pressed is to hug them, [[PowerOfTrust regardless of how much danger the hugger puts themselves in]] to get to the huggee. Often overlaps with the IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight, and sometimes counts as a ShipTease between the involved characters. Often serves something of a dual purpose, in some cases not only is the person trying to use the PowerOfLove, they're also trying to pin their arms down so their rampage will end.

* In the ''VideoGame/LegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'' OVA, Estelle gives one to Renne when the latter is upset and [[spoiler:threatening to kill Estelle]]. Even sweeter when you realize that [[spoiler:in the video game, Estelle and Joshua eventually decide to take care of Renne and adopt her into their family]].

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': Casca does this to Griffith as he's [[ShowerOfAngst clawing at his arms until they bleed while taking a bath]].
** [[spoiler:After Guts has a breakdown when they have sex for the first time, she gives him one of these.]] Both cases become worse when you realize that both of the receivers of Casca's Hugs o' Healing may be badass, but are painfully starved for genuine affection and intimacy.

* FanFic/AGrowingAffection: Not his intent, but Naruto inadvertently gives one to Hinata in the first chapter. She intentionally returns the favor a few times later on.
* A truly epic example occurs in Fanfic/AWorldWithoutRainbows when Fluttershy uses one of these to stop [[spoiler: Moonside]] Twilight's SuperPowerMeltdown.
* Apple Bloom uses this in Fanfic/AHairierProblemRiseOfTheFurball to stop Raspberry Beryl from following through on murdering Blueblood [[spoiler: at her trial]].

* In FanFic/TheMeasureOfATitan an interesting variation on this is quite possibly the story's Crowning Moment of Heartwarming. After everything goes to hell, Starfire has just been put through a MindRape by TheDragon, forced to relieve her days as a slave, and [[spoiler: killed TheDragon in violation of Robin's number one rule.]] She then shows up to save Cyborg and OC David Foster in full ProudWarriorRaceGirl mode by beating up Cinderblock, after which she lands and starts storming towards them. David then realizes that he is still wearing enemy colors, standing near a downed Cyborg, and that there have been [[MirrorMatch evil clones of everyone running around,]] all on top of the fact that Starfire last saw him appear to have been killed. He starts babbling to save his own life...and she scoops him into a hug and laments that they had feared he was dead, because she knew it was the real him immediately. David claims it is the first time he felt genuinely ''safe'' in a long time.

* In [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/17890/fallout-equestria-starlight Fallout Equestria: Starlight,]] this is how Radiant Star stops Spark once and for all. Unusual, considering how dark FanFic/FalloutEquestria RecursiveFanfiction can be.

Added DiffLines:

* Twice in ''FanFic/AngelOfTheBat- After spending nearly an entire conversation giving Batman a ReasonYouSuckSpeech with a heavy dose of CallingTheOldManOut, Stephanie Brown/Spoiler practically collapses into him, crying into his armor when he apologizes for his failures to her as a mentor and a friend. Bruce practically tells her he loves her, in his own reserved, stoic way. Cassandra Cain/Batgirl/The Angel of the Bat has a very similar argument with Jesus after a CrisisOfFaith laced with ColdBloodedTorture and {{Gayangst}}, and ends in much the same way.
