* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'': There's Bastila, who takes a while to lose the DistressBall, but when she does? Overrides a neural disruptor, kills her guard, uses telekinesis to break her way out of the cage and helps mop up whatever Vulkars are dumb enough to hang around after that using the dead mook's double-bladed sword.

This is made especially hilarious if the PlayerCharacter does not level up because the player is saving their points for later, in which you are reduced to running in circles away from enemies while she kills literally all of them.

* In ''Anime/StreetFighterIITheAnimatedMovie'', Chun-Li is attacked by Vega as she walks out of the shower, and though he has the upper hand at first, she eventually turns the tide and utterly dominates him. However, this trope is downplayed to an extent. While Chun-Li defeated Vega, she sustained serious injuries during the fight and might have died had she not been immediately discovered by Guile (who [[TheCavalryArrivesLate burst into the room right after the fight ended]]) and hospitalized.
** The scene, and by extent this trope, is quite well described in the comments' section in [[http://youtu.be/7qXFunYSsc8 this]] Website/YouTube video of their fight:
--->'''scarabmango''': Think you're just gonna sneak in there and find some weak, terrified college girl to kill? Not with the [[FanNickname Queen of Fighting Games]], [[PrecisionFStrike motherfucker]]. Sofa to the FACE!!!

* In the two DeviantArt works [[http://www.deviantart.com/art/She-Hulk-Chained-590644520 seen]] [[http://www.deviantart.com/art/She-Hulk-Unchained-590772276 here]], two unseen (and pretty stupid) villains think ComicBook/SheHulk is helpless seeing as she's bound in [[{{Unobtainium}} adamantium]] shackles, but forget that ''the floor'' said shackles are bolted to is not. (Slightly NSFW.)

* ''Franchise/YuGiOh'': Kisara, the girl that Kaiba's preincarnation has evident feelings for, is a good example of this trope. Seto may have saved her first, but she [[NowLetMeCarryYou repays the favor in spades]]; her soul is the ''Blue-Eyes White Dragon''. [[note]] This trope only applies to her anime persona; in the manga, she doesn't [[spoiler:take the blast for priest Seto]] -- instead, she is just hit by it in attempting to escape. Spoilers!

* [[spoiler:Sonohara Anri]] of ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'' seems very distressed all the time, what with perverts hitting on her, ganguro girls bullying her, and the Slasher coming after her. Then [[spoiler:she stops a knife with her arm, [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech tells Niekawa Haruna that her knife is nothing but a child]], pulls out the real Saika, and takes over the army of Slashers.]]

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} and Comicbook/{{Batgirl}} seldom need to be rescued. In ''World's Finest'' #169 they've been kidnapped by Comicbook/{{Catwoman}} and Black Flame (a Silver Age Supergirl's enemy). By the time Franchise/{{Superman}} and Batman arrive at the cave where they're being held, both girls have already escaped. In fact, they save ''them'' from a DeathTrap.
