* In ''VideoGame/TimeSplittersFuturePerfect'', every level after the first has someone you have to keep alive. Whether its an original character or a past/future version of yourself. Can someone say "fuck THE HOODED MAN - 2401 level"?

They're generally capable defending themselves, the AI prefers to target you over them, and they have an invisible health bar which is restored after every cutscene. Should that health bar become visible, however, they become a whole less competent. Can someone say "fuck THE HOODED MAN - 2401 level"?



* [[SuperMarioBros ''Mario and Wario'']] where Mario has a bucket dropped onto his head by Wario, and as a result you had to help a fairy get Mario to his brother Luigi in order to get the bucket off his head.

** This was later [[DolledUpInstallment dolled up]] into ''EekTheCat'' for SNES. It's quite literally the same game with Eek stuck in it.

** In the original ''VideoGame/XWing'' you escorted the Nebulon B frigate ''Redemption'' as it takes on wounded personnel from other vessels, and you have to protect it from an Imperial ship of the same class (their Nebulon B, however, is heavily armed and flies around the vicinity while spewing out TIE Bombers). The same mission is referenced in the XWingSeries as being a simulator training mission reenacting an actual battle, and comments are made on its difficulty.

* In ''VideoGame/DeadRising', although most of the Escort Missions are optional, they do constitute a large portion of the game. Especially while waiting for the next plot mission to become available. Protagonist Frank West finds himself rescuing survivors who range from marginally combat-capable to nearly helpless to injured (requiring Frank to carry them piggy-back) and taking them back to the safety of the security room. In some cases this requires a trek all the way across the mall through hordes of zombies. It's saying something about their ArtificialStupidity when the ones you have to carry are the easiest to save.
