* Bottom of the 7th inning, Game 5 of the 2002 World Series. With teammates J.T. Snow on third base and David Bell on second, the San Francisco Giants' Kenny Lofton hit a triple to center field. Right as Snow was running for home plate, then-three-year-old Darren Baker (son of Giants manager Dusty Baker) ran out to home plate to retrieve Lofton's bat as he was acting as batboy - Snow swooped him up into his arms as he crossed home plate to get him out of the way before Bell arrived and avoided a nasty collision.

* In the 5th season ''GreysAnatomy'' finale, [[spoiler:a man saves a girl from getting hit by a bus, but is hit full-on himself, destroying his face, among other things. Which is key because it prevents Grace's staff from figuring out his identity: George O'Malley.]]

* Being the go-to DamselInDistress in the early seasons of ''Series/{{BuffyTheVampireSlayer}}'', Willow is the subject of several of these. Oz saves her from an assassin's bullet (getting shot himself in the process) in ''What's My Line?''; Angel saves her from Gwen Post's lightning attack in ''Revelations''; Riley pulls her out of the way of a car when (in a complete haze after [[YourCheatingHeart catching Oz with Veruca]]) she wanders into the road in ''Wild At Heart''. Other examples include Xander being pushed out of the way of falling debris in ''The Gift'' by Anya (who takes the hit herself, but survives); Cordelia being pushed out of the way of a truck by Buffy in ''Witch'' when (having been blinded by the titular witch) she wanders into traffic (they both dodge the truck); and Buffy pushing a homeless man out of the path of a car in ''Anne'' -- Buffy is thrown up onto the hood, and everyone gapes when she brushes off the injuries thanks to her MadeOfIron superpowers.
* Used multiple times in ''{{Charmed}}''. The most notable instances are Piper pushing Prue out of the way of Rodriguez's energy ball in ''Deja Vu All Over Again'' (which saves them both, but knocks Prue unconscious long enough for Rodriguez to kill Andy) and ''All Hell Breaks Loose'', where Prue is killed when she pushes the Innocent of the Week out of the way of Shax's wind attack. ([[SenselessSacrifice Futilely]], since Shax murders the innocent anyway a few seconds later).

* ''VideoGame/Persona4'' lets your fellow party members do this for you if you would have died to the attack and have a high enough ''[[RelationshipValues Social Link]]'' with them as long as they have more then 1 HP, haven't already done it this combat round, and it's a single target attack, and they will always survive whatever they blocked, even if the rules say it should kill them, [[spoiler:Except during the TrueFinalBoss where no matter the Social Link value, they will all attempt to save the MC from the special Plot powered attack and then be absorbed by it themselves.]]

* ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'': Sousuke rescues Chidori from an incoming truck. Up to then she'd regarded him as some weird military otaku, so she's [[LuminescentBlush notably affected]] by this act...[[{{tsundere}} until]] she realises [[AccidentalPervert he's inadvertently grabbed her breast]] which he [[NoSocialSkills keeps giving a reassuring squeeze]], causing her to [[ArmorPiercingSlap deck him]]. In a subversion, it is immediately shown that Sousuke's backup HumongousMecha had stopped the truck immediately following the save, meaning he could have spared himself the effort.
