* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Faithfully serving Renly as a member of his Kingsguard is Brienne's quiet way of expressing her (unrequited) love for him.
** The Hound finally admits he's interested in protecting Arya for more than just her ransom in "The Children".
** Toward the end of Season Six, Tyrion swears to Daenerys, "I believe in you. It's embarrassing, really. I'd swear you my sword but I don't actually own a sword." When Daenerys tells Tyrion she needs his council, not his protection, he answers, "It's yours. Now and always."

** As for ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' games in general, the people that play them [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this trope by not wanting any of their units to fall in battle, as [[FinalDeath their deaths are permanent]]. If a ''single'' unit dies, chances are that [[RageQuit a player will restart the entire battle]].

* Though it doesn't start out this way, protecting Hatchin becomes one of [[ActionGirl Michiko's]] main motives in ''Anime/MichikoToHatchin''. Later this trope is [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming touchingly inverted]] when Hatchin proves to be [[LittleMissBadass pretty badass herself]] and says, almost line-for-line, that she will protect Michiko.

* In ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'', [[ByronicHero Maho]]'s ultimate goal in living up to the standards for the Nishizumi heiress is [[spoiler:so that her younger sister Miho can live and do tankery as she wishes, without having to take up the responsibility in her stead. It takes six years, from near the end of the prequel manga to the last episode of the first series, but Miho ultimately finds a way of Tankery that she can do, and Maho is [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming very pleased]] with this]].

* After Bartlett is shot down in ''VideoGame/AceCombat5TheUnsungWar'' protecting Edge she becomes ''very'' determined to protect [[ImpliedLoveInterest you.]] BadAss? There's a myth about the Demons of Razgriz that applied to the Wardog squadron, and they may indeed be literal demons if one mid game mission is anything to go by.

* [[Franchise/MassEffect Commander Shepard]] is the galaxy's ultimate BadAss, however a certain dialogue path with [[ActionGirl Ash]] will have her invoke this trope. While [[DeadpanSnarker Ash]] does so very tongue in cheek she lives up to that promise.

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', Gray, after [[spoiler:being locked in an InvoluntaryBattleToTheDeath]] with Juvia and [[spoiler:attempting a HeroicSuicide to avoid having to harm her, only to see that she did the same thing, laments the outcome]], saying that he didn't just want to see her come to harm as a friend, but wanted to protect her. While Gray's somewhat stronger than Juvia, Juvia is still a capable mage in her own right, and this is played as a possible hint that Gray is starting to return Juvia's feelings.
