* DoubleSubversion in ''UltimateMarvel'' with the Vision, who was created by a world that was about to be destroyed by the Gah Lak Tus and sent across the cosmos to visit each world that was going to be targeted by it, in order to... record that planet's cultures and leave, believing that [[NothingCanSaveUsNow nothing can stand against the Gah Lak Tus]]. But because HumansAreSpecial, Vision ends up fulfilling this trope and helping save the world anyway.

** When Italy signed the armistice with the Allies, Supermarina (the naval command) and the smartest parts of the government, [[GenreSavvy knowing that the Germans would have fought on anyway with the help of the remaining troops loyal to Mussolini]], sent many troops to the mountains and the Allies-occupied zones in the south and most of the fleet to Malta, ready to fight to take back the country and, for the troops in the mountains, [[LaResistance make hell for the former allies]] and [[LesCollaborateurs the Fascists]].

** In the original ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'' story, Zor-El hurried to construct a space rocket and Alura to find a habitable world to save Kara before the kryptonite radiations killed them all.
--->'''Zor-El:''' We have a month before kryptonite radiations slowly poison the air! But before that fatal hour, this rocket will send our daughter to another world!\\
'''Alura:''' But which world? I'll use the super-space telescope to find some civilized world were Kara can grow up safely!
** In the modern version of that story, Zor-El engraved on his daughter's rocket the next inscription:
--->"This vessel carries my daughter Kara Zor-El from the now dead planet Krypton. Treat her as you would your own child for you will see the treasure she will be for your world."

* Both WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}} and his arch-nemesis Metro Man have the same origin story up to the point of them crash-landing on Earth. Their planets were about to be sucked into a black hole, so their parents sent their infants away.

** When Vichy France was invaded, all the French warships stationed at Toulon were sunk by their crew to prevent their capture by the Nazis. All except for the submarine Casabianca, which escaped the harbor to fight for the allies. In order for this to happen, dock crews had to risk their lives by helping and the other submarines of the fleet had [[Heroic Sacrifice sacrifice themselves to draw fire]]. They did this under the promise that Casabianca make her survival count.

* It's the whole premise of ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', [[DoomedByCanon as you already know]] that the entire planet will be destroyed with barely any survivors, but that one ship makes it out with the coordinates to reach the first Halo. The last parts of the game are all about retrieving the data from an ancient ruin before it's overrun by enemies and take it to the last remaining warship in the hope that it will find something at the coordinates to help save humanity from total extinction. At that points it seems as if you're the last handful of humans still alive on the planet and when the Autumn takes off, you stay behind to cover their escape, watching it disappear into the sky. [[spoiler:And then you're completely alone in the ruins, with an infinite wave of enemies crashing down on you.]]
