* Lucas Arts' ''StarWars''-themed space combat sims do this just enough to make you really hate it. One of the ''TIEFighter'' [[ExpansionPack expansion packs]] had a mission where you had to escort Darth Vader's fighter. He would insist on joining in the combat, and could be given orders as any other member of your wing. However, actually giving him orders had very bad results as he didn't appreciate it. The most extreme case is probably the first ''VideoGame/RogueSquadron'' game, in which ''thirteen'' of the game's nineteen levels have you escorting, defending, or otherwise having to ensure the continued existence of something.

* The ''AceCombat'' series frequently requires the player to escort allied aircraft, usually bombers or transports. Occasionally, you're required to protect civilians, ground forces, or ships. Just as often, you make the enemy fail their escort mission.

* 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"?
