* ''Series/TheBill'' had a light version in an episode where a detective is doing some illicit moonlighting as a bodyguard, guarding the son of a Muslim businessman. The kid slips his bodyguard and goes partying instead, only returning at the last minute with a smug expression. The detective gets his revenge by giving a photograph he found of the kid drinking alcohol to his younger brother, so [[BigBrotherBully his elder brother can't afford to boss him around any more.]]

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Inverted, then played with. After Sigrun and Emil leave for book-scavenging in Chapter 10, Mikkel ends up being the only TheImmune person capable of fighting in tank that otherwise contains two non-immune non-combatants and a currently DeepSleep-ridden fellow immune combatant. Mikkel also happens to really, really want to check out a building within walking distance that may contain clues to a [[CureForCancer cure for the Rash]], the story's PlagueZombie inducing disease. He suddenly decides that he's ''[[LoopholAbuse technically]]'' not leaving Tuuri and Reynir without protection because the sleeping Lalli is with them and heads out. Soon after that, Tuuri and Reynir find a very, very flimsy excuse to go after Mikkel (he wanted to take the CuteKitten with him, but she jumped out of his pocket during Tuuri's attempts to keep him from leaving, so obviously they need to bring her to Mikkel), effectively ditching Lalli in the process. In this case, the "bodyguard" is basically in coma, so he's actually the most helpless person in the vehicle.

* ''Fanfic/ABrighterDark'': Early in the story, Corrin would sneak away from her retainers and go into the dungeons alone. Not because she didn't like them, far from it, but she figured the only way to get real practice was by fighting people that actually wanted to kill her and bodyguards would get in the way of that.

* {{Downplayed}} by Han and Leia Solo in the StarWarsExpandedUniverse -- Leia's [[EliteMook Noghri]] bodyguards have been a standing order since TheThrawnTrilogy, so it's not surprising that they sometimes want a little time alone. In particular, Han takes a minor but persistent delight in ordering them to fetch something from off the ship, and then taking off without them (they ''must'' see through it by now, [[HonorBeforeReason but have to do it anyway]]). Of course, both [[BadassNormal Han]] and [[{{Ambadassador}} Leia]] are perfectly capable of taking care of themselves, but they still usually have cause to regret leaving the Noghri behind.
