* Sort of spoofed in the reality show ''WhoWantsToBeASuperhero'', where one of the very first challenges of the first season is race where the true goal is to help the lost crying child. Those who raced past the little kid to the finish line [[SecretTestOfCharacter lost]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'', children are everywhere, crying, ducking and generally miserable, when God sends his wrath against the Egpytians. This is supposed to make us dislike the Pharaoh instead of God, however. After all, it's the Pharaoh's fault (kinda) for not agreeing to release the Hebrews. Inverted in the song "When You Believe" are the reverse scenes which produce even more {{Tear Jerker}}ing. Count 'em, people: A little girl guiding her Grandmother out from slavery's shadow, children racing around Ethiopian followers, a tiny girl leading giant oxen, a baby girl ''and'' her doll on Daddy's head, Moses carrying children on his back, a man lifting his infant into the air and teenage girls dancing together. Don't forget that this is the story of a rose-cheeked Hebrew baby and both God and Pharaoh kill first-borns just to prove points.

* It happens in the backstory, but ''[[Literature/XWingSeries Iron Fist]]'' mentions a riot which was "controlled" by means of stormtroopers arriving and opening fire on the crowd. [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Castin Donn]] saw a young mother get shot right in front of him and saved her baby before he could get shot or trampled.

* ''TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' AnimatedSeries had a crying little girl whose ''mother'' pushed her out of the way, but was still in danger herself. Spidey swung in and saved the mom, then dropped her back in front of her child, sort of [[InvertedTrope inverting]] the trope.

* The opening credits of ''WesternAnimation/{{Wolverine And The X-Men}}'' featured a brother and sister getting this whilst being chased by Sentinel Robots. Wolverine rescues them (well he is the titular character).
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' has a pair of kids and their dad nearly get crushed by a falling statue. Luckily Blue Beetle steps in and uses his shield to protect them.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' had a entirely straight example with a girl needing to be saved from a falling building, but followed it up with Wolverine exasperatedly saying "this kid's crying...do something" before handing her to Jubilee.
* This is how [[spoiler: Simon Petrikov and Marceline]] met in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' - he found her crying in the ruins of a city during WorldWar3.

* In the original ''Film/KingKong'' (1933), while Kong is attacking the native village on Skull Island and the inhabitants are fleeing, there's a brief scene with a small native child who's been left behind. IIRC a woman (probably the mother) rescues the child.

* Averted in ''{{Titanic}}''. Jack and Rose are trying to find a way out and find a small child. Another man finds them, shouts at them in a language they can't understand, and likewise he doesn't understand their warnings not to go that way because the hall behind that door is flooded...

* Played straight in the 1943 Nazi version of ''[[Film/{{Titanic1943}} Titanic]]'', in which Petersen saves a child that was abandoned in a First Class cabin.

* One public information film (sort of the British version of Public Service Announcements) about the dangers of drunk driving featured just one close-up shot of a little girl crying while, off-screen, her mother screamed and shouted at her father, who apparently killed a small boy while driving under the influence.
