** It's common in ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'' to be forced to rescue allies who are in danger as part of the gameplay, but there are notable storyline examples. The ''Ocarina of Time'' arc starts by informing us that Princess Ruto has been kidnapped, and she falls into a trap from which you must save her in the next level. Agitha is saved early in the ''Twilight Princess'' arc, and the villain specifically sends enemies to capture her again later. And a massive part of the conflict at Gerudo Valley involves saving a stranded Lana. Oddly, despite disappearing after the first stage of the game, Zelda is ''never'' captured at any time in the story, though this is hardly a surprise when [[LateArrivalSpoiler Sheik is the third playable character you unlock]].

* At least as old as Literature/TheBible itself, as shown by the case of Sarah, daughter of Raguel, saved by Tobias with Raphael's help.


Added DiffLines:

**In OracleOfSeasons, Din plays this role pretty straight forward, while in the game's counterpart, OracleOfAges, Nayru is possessed by Veran (to be fair, she does help Link and Ralph escape from Queen Ambi). Zelda, if you linked your game, plays this trope very straight twice through OracleOfAges. First by Vire, second by Twinrova.

* Kairi and her Nobody Namine from the ''KingdomHearts'' series, though they get a few moments outside the role in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', and really only fall into the role twice each.
