* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'', Buck Tuddrussel gets into a tough bind in ancient China that requires immediate rescue before Kubla Khan has him executed.

He's not happy to see her, and the whole time she's around he acts humbled, and incredibly intimidated by her calm prowess.

* ''Anime/YuGiOh:'' Seto Kaiba was ''[[UngratefulBastard never]]'' happy about being rescued by Yugi, whether it was from being held captive in his own virtual reality RPG or turned to stone by a VirtualGhost. Eventually, someone (usually Jyonouchi) would question why Yugi kept bailing him out when he clearly didn't want it. Of course, he ''did'' once thank him for saving [[MoralityPet Mokuba]].
