* In a sense, Leonardo, from ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' (and particularly from [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 the 2003 version]]) sometimes fall into this or feels like this. He hasn't always been able to protect his family from danger, and this has always tormented him.

* ''Series/GamefThrones'': How Brienne feels about herself after the deaths of Renly Baratheon and later, Catelyn Stark, neither of whom she was in a position to protect. Littlefinger even points out her inability to protect either of them in "The House of Black and White." This changes by the middle of Season 6, where Jaime praises her for succeeding in fulfilling her oath.

* Hayate's rather complicated attitude toward Himeno in ''{{Pretear}}'' - including his harshly critical behavior toward her but also more particularly his almost stalkerish protectiveness (especially in the anime) - is the result of his guilt over [[spoiler:the previous Pretear, Takako, becoming the Princess of Destruction because of her unrequited love for him]].

* In ''PhantomBrave'', Ash protects Marona to make up for failing to protect her parents. Nevermind that he died right along with them.

* Twist: Depth Charge from ''{{Transformers}}: WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' isn't a Failure ''Knight''... He's more of a Failure '''[[TheHunter Vampire Hunter]]'''. He used to be a loyal, good natured, reliable Maximal, an all-around good guy. What happened? Protoform X happened. The sadistic, violent experiment gone wrong pretty much literally ripped Depth Charge's life to shreds, and [[HeWhoFightsMonsters bringing the monster to justice is all Depth Charge has left]]. He has a way of showing up when he's needed and then telling whoever he just saved where to stick it which stems from him being more of a loner than most {{Failure Knight}}s... but considering what happened to his ''last'' group of pals, maybe that's understandable.

* ''Percy Jackson'' has Grover, who failed to save Thalia and then becomes this for Percy. And if Grover didn't feel bad enough about it himself, the elders are quick to shame him for it.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Kaladin. He fails to protect his little brother, which drives him to try to protect anyone else he ever deems to be his responsibility (his spear squad, Bridge Four). His [[IShouldHaveBeenBetter reaction]] is generally not pretty.
