* Escorting bombers or recon planes in ''WingsOfGlory'' is actually pretty fun. These planes are quite formidable targets, with forward and rear firing guns, as well as the ability to absorb a lot of damage. Also, failing these missions doesn't result in a game over as long as you survive, so the stress of being required to succeed isn't there.

As a unit who has the status that makes them unable to crystallize, Rafa is immune to certain things including instant death.
** Also, note that most skills of said opponents are [[OneHitKill instant death attacks]].

* ''Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together'' doesn't have many missions where failing to protect the escort is a Game Over, but there are a LOT of missions where a recruitable character will be a NPC starting near the enemies and you must protect it if you want to recruit it later. However, regardless of their strength, the [=NPCs=] will follow only one strategy: to see which enemy characters are in their range and attack the weakest of them. And there goes the SquishyWizard who happens to have no MP at the moment to try and hit that scary, heavily armored Terror Knight with his wooden stick because the Knight is the only enemy in his range (wich fills the "weakest enemy" quota).

** TacticsOgre is quite similar in this respect. However, in this case, saving the NPC is actually optional, and only affects whether it joins your group or not (and some subsequent dialogue), so it can be seen more as a challenge than artificial difficulty.

** A few missions of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsL'' have [[Manga/KuroganeNoLinebarrel Kouichi Hayase]] go berserk and charge right into the enemy army and multiple bosses. If his Linebarrel mech hasn't been upgraded enough, or Kouich is under-leveled, these missions can be very frustrating.

** The reason he was so painful to escort was that Rurik's behavior changed within missions. For the most part he followed the players but at certain points he would hit a trigger which makes him run along a pre-determined path regardless of the players. These paths often led him through or near multiple enemy groups; unless parties were aware of when this occurred he could easily outpace them and end up dead.

* The characters you escort in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' (Zelda, the old man, the blacksmith, and Blind) can't take damage and the path you need to take is fairly straightforward.

* A manageable example in one of the early levels of ''OgreBattle64'' where you have to escort Prince Yumil. Yumil himself can't fight, but he's got four [[EliteMooks black knights]] with him that are WAY stronger than anything you'll face on the map and anything you have access to for a decent portion of the game. While the black knights aren't invincible, pretty much the only way Yumil will die is if you ignore him and let him wander into repeated fights, which you shouldn't do anyways because it means no experience for your troops and Yumil leaves the next mission. * VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown (the 2012 version) features these as Extraction missions. The people you're escorting, however, are controlled by you, move as fast as your soldiers, and invariably have an ability that allows them to increase the effect of cover, making them infinitely less annoying, apart from the fact that they [[StopHelpingMe don't shut up about how awesome you are for the first few turns.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Wild9}}'' you can escort Pokkit, who has an arsenal of weapons which can blow away any enemy, the same goes for Nitro, who by just moving him will cause him to explosively sneeze, which is actually required to open some doors, thankfully, it does not damage you.

* In ''DarkMessiahOfMightAndMagic'', the player has to escort Leanna at a couple of points in the game, firstly in nearly all of these points she can be told to wait while you clear the enemies out first, she can instantly heal herself and you during combat, she can do decent damage to enemies and she tries to keep a distance between herself and said enemies, sometimes even positioning behind the player to heal you while you block them. * In ''{{Wild9}}'' you can escort Pokkit, who has an arsenal of weapons which can blow away any enemy, the same goes for Nitro, who by just moving him will cause him to explosively sneeze, which is actually required to open some doors, thankfully, it does not damage you.

* ''VideoGame/ColdFear includes brief and rather painless escort elements, which is even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]]. [[spoiler:The FinalBoss battle is also an escort, and [[NonStandardGameOver not nearly as painless]].]]

** Later, the game got a mode called "Payload Race", where both teams have to push a cart of their own and fend the other team's cart. ** And also, the game got a map called ''Snowplow'', it's similar to Payload where a team must lead a full-sized train to the end of the track while the other team must prevent it from reaching the end, but the difference is that the train can be damaged, but not by the fire from enemy player's weapons, instead, by traps laid in the tracks, the attacking team must disable these traps by standing on points, while the defending team must protect these points so the traps keep damaging the train until it breaks, this map was also made by fans along with a fan-made short film featuring a train.
