* ''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.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' when instead of ''diving'', Zelos shoves Colette out of the way and pushes himself out of the range of fire in the same motion.
** Played straight when Mithos saves Tabatha from a rockslide, being injured in the process. [[spoiler:After shooting Tabatha during TheReveal, and being asked how he could do it to someone who saved him, he admits that he hated her all along, and in the manga adaptation, said he saved her so that the heroes would not realize who he really was]].

Not that anyone knew the effects very well at that point, but nonetheless.]]
