*Flim/AstroBoy 2009, When WrenchWench Coras falls while painting the gladiator robot. Astro catches her using his rocket feet, causing her to become confused (since she doesn't know he's a robot). RoboticReveal
*DirtyDancing, the most iconic moment in the movie. And it gets away with because "the running catch" is a actual dance move professional dancers do.
PeterPan and Wendy do this in neary every adaption of Peter Pan. The best example is in the classic Disney version, when Wendy is forced to walk the plank



* Brilliantly subverted in the TrumanShow, when Truman spots the love of his life Lauren (whose just a extra in the show that is his life) but as he stares at her the actor who plays his future wife suddenly drops backgrounds into his arms and Truman can't where Lauren's gone.

* IndianaJonesAndTheRaidersOfTheLostArc does it almost flawlessly, main hero Indy is trapped in a AncientTomb while ThoseWackyNazis are making off with the Arc of the Convenient and they decided to drop Indy's OldFlame Marion on top him. Creepy Nazi Toht pushes Marion into the tomb, Marion manages to catch a nearby Anubis statue to stop her fall but the statue cracks and she falls again but this time from a shorter height. Indy catches her in his arms making a iconic image, but Marion is still angry at Indy for leaving her behind earlier in the movie and struggles out of his hold. Then sMarion notices the snakes that are everywhere, and promptly climbs up onto his shoulder much to Indy's annoyance.

* The Superman example is discussed on Series/TheBigBangTheory, Sheldon insisting that Lois' fall from that height into Superman's arms of steel would have divided her into three slices. "Frankly, the most humane thing he could have done for her was to let her hit the ground."

** Sanji does it again with Nami in Thriller Bark when she's unconscious and at the mercy of creepy InvisibleJackass Absalom, who drugged her so she wouldn't complain when he kisses and marries her (AndNowYouMustMarryMe). Sanji bursts in true to fashion wrecking the zombie holding Nami, and as Nami falling to the ground he catches her with one arm and apologises for keeping her waiting. Sanji later takes it UpToEleven when he hoists Nami above his head and lets Absalom wail on him, Sanji only drops Nami so he doesn't get his blood on her "beautiful" wedding dress.

** In the Dressrosa Arc RidiculouslyCuteCritter Leo the fighting Dwarf does this with Dwarf Princess Mansherry (they're more like pixies really). Mansherry has a strong crush on Leo, and much to the princess's delight Leo saves her and catches her in his tiny arms, but Leo thens claims she's gotten heavier getting her angry. In fact Leo is oblivious to fact she has feelings for him and gets angry when she asks for him to carry her away (thinking she's being selfish) the other Dwarves force him to do it and Leo reluctantly piggybacks her to safety with Princess snuggling against his back.

** Reluctant BattleCouple Zoro and Tashigi do this... Sort of, Tashigi is exhausted after fighting snow harpy Monet and needs Zoro to carry her, but he does the far less romantic method of hoisting her over his shoulder like a sack of potatoes, Tashigi is embarrassed and wants Zoro to put her down when he reaches her Marine subordinates.

* "Anime/DragonBall": Happens a few times in early in the series, first time was when Bulma fell out of a exploding vehicle, Goku caught her with ease amusing considering Goku was half her size at the time. An another time Bulma was falling, it was Yamcha who caught her but due to his shyness around beautiful women he dropped her immediately.
* Later in Dragon Ball Z filler a another lady falls, this time it's SplitPersonality Launch (who flips between docile blue hair lady to blonde badass lady) as she falls down a waterfall and is caught by ThirdEye fighter Tien, being in Tien's arms causes Launch to blush funny since she was in her "bad girl" blonde form at the time.
