* Zigzagged in ''Webcomic/LsEmpire''. [[BadassPrincess Daisy]] (who was kidnapped due to a case of mistaken identity) manages to break out of her cell and proceeds to wreak havoc in her captor's base until she's recaptured (though it took an entire squadron {{Zerg Rush}}ing her to do so). Ultimately, someone else had to rescue her from a DeathTrap, but she immediately used the weapon she gained in the process to go rescue another DamselInDistress and take down the BigBad.

* ''WhateleyUniverse'': Jinn Sinclair in "Bottle a Jinn", when she is "absorbed" by RichBitch Solange (Jinn is a protagonist, but is non-corporeal, and Solange has the power of being able to absorb spirits and steal their powers). [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when [[BigDamnHeroes Team Kimba]] try to rescue her and end up in a huge brawl that gets them into serious trouble with the school administration. They realize afterward that Jinn isn't helpless, is manipulating Solange against her will, and needed a much smarter plan from her team. Ultimately, [[spoiler: Jinn cons Solange into letting her go just seconds before Solange will most need her powers.]]

* Ashi from ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' Season 5 is an interesting case; normally a straight ActionGirl, she discovers in the penultimate episode that she is Aku's biological daughter. Aku takes full advantage of this, mutating her into a demon while her good self remains trapped and fully aware for Jack to try and save.

** Sakura is remembered for this, specially during Part One. The one time when rescuing her was an actual plot point was during Sasuke and Naruto's fight with Gaara, who was slowly choking her to death.
