It happens quite a lot in action and scifi movies, though shows and movies based on comic books seem to like this trope quite a lot. Also a common Anime Opening trope. It is somewhat common in a fantasy setup with magic or psychic powers to have someone perform this trope straight only for their latent abilities to trigger thus subverting the "futile" part of this trope.

* Just before the ending of CrisisCore, [[spoiler:Cloud starts to wake from his mako addiction]] and reaches his hand out. [[spoiler:Zack]] already has his back turned by then, however, off to face the [[spoiler:Shinra Army that we know from the original game will kill him]].
