** When Espada attack Karakura Town, Ichigo is devastated by his inability to prevent Orihime getting seriously injured. Rukia then makes Ichigo go meet up with Orihime, to apologise for his failure and promise to not fail next time. The following arc has Orihime forced to go with the Espadas and Ichigo going to rescue her with Rukia, Chad, Renji and Ishida, focusing on getting Orihime back no matter what - even when such a desire triggers situations like Ichigo bringing himself BackFromTheDead upon hearing her cry out for him and brutalising both foes (Ulquiorra, alias the one who killed him ''and'' mentally tortured Orihime) '''and''' friends (Ishida, who tried to calm him down from such a rage):

** Rukia was the one who unlocked Ichigo's powers by giving him hers, giving him the chance to protect others from supernatural threats. By doing so, she broke a cardinal law of Soul Society and was taken away to be executed; Ichigo's motivation to go into Soul Society with his friends to retrieve and save her comes from both Orihime coming up with the idea and his own desire to repay Rukia for what he did for him.

* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Blade]]'' for the GBA: Dorcas's wife Natalie is an IllGirl. [[HealthcareMotivation He wants her to get better, and so he joins a bandit group.]] Once Lyn knocks sense into him (and Natalie does too, if the player makes them talk), Dorcas decides to keep fighting for her until he gathers enough gold to buy the medicine. It's just as simple as that, for him.
** 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]].

Related tropes are numerous. Effectively, it is a subtrope of the {{Protectorate}} and TheChampion. BodyguardCrush is when the protection comes before the emotions. TheDulcineaEffect is when this absolute dedication pops up all of 10 seconds after he first sees her. MamaBear and PapaWolf are when it's a parent protecting their child. This trope is part of the job description for LadyAndKnight. In ancient times, [[SacredHospitality becoming someone's guest]] automatically put you under their protection, leading to a lot of this.

* A very interesting case happens in ''LightNovel/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts''. Resident {{Yandere}} Shouko is absolutely obsessed with BrilliantButLazy student Yuuji, and at first it seems like she's just a crazy UnluckyChildhoodFriend. But then in episode 11 of Season 2, it goes into their backstory, and her reasons are explained: Shouko was and still is a LonelyRichKid, with Yuuji as her OnlyFriend. At some point, Yuuji pulled a BigDamnHeroes moment to save Shouko from three boys who tried to bully her after she tried to stop them from writing some vicious lies on his PE clothing; he tried to come up with an excuse not to help, but in the end saves her anyway. Although he tries to pass it off as nothing, Shouko is really touched by that action, and she vows to his mother to marry him someday. His mom happily agrees to support her efforts as well... which then sort of helps explain why [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale she tasers him, ties him up, pokes his eyes out when he's looking at other women, and drags him to the movies in chains.]]
