Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* In ''TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'', one of the early missions is to help Zelda escape her own castle and bodyguards.
* In ''Paper Mario the Thousand Year Door'' Princess Peach ditches Toadsworth in the intro because he was irritating; this leads to her being captured by the BigBad and his minions later.
* The occasional quest in ''WorldOfWarcraft'' involves killing key [=NPCs=] that are usually accompanied by [[EliteMook Elite mobs]], requiring the player to figure a way to separate the two before attacking. One notable example is in Shadowmoon Valley, with the NPC in question being a Blood Elf who's basically a fantasy version of a drug addict and trying to hide it; the player lures him away from his bodyguard with a package of the drug in question.
