Not only does she [[DivingSave prevent Lupin from falling to his death]], she shields him with her own body and tells Cagliostro that if he intended to kill Lupin, he'd have to kill her too. Cagliostro respnds by [[spoiler: having Jordo open fire around them... with each shot narrowly missing by inches]]. Clarisse doesn't budge, despite fearing for both their lives.
** At the film's climax, Cagliostro prepares to fire at Lupin as he hangs from a ledge of the castle's clock tower. Clarisse literally leaps to Lupin's rescue, [[HeroicSacrifice by jumping from the tower]] and [[TakingYouWithMe attempting to take Cagliostro with her]]; complete with a BigNo
* In episode 3 of ''LightNovel/UnlimitedFafnir'', Yuu does this to protect Iris from getting killed by Mitsuki. She had good reason to kill Iris, as she would forcefully turned into a dragon if the White Leviathan attacking the school got close enough to her. Fortunately Yuu manages to devise a plan to stop the dragon before it could get to Iris.
* In the anime version of ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'', when Hideyoshi was about to kill the unconscious Masamune, Masamune's remaining followers threw themselves over their lord's body in a last ditch attempt to [[UndyingLoyalty protect him and die with him]]. Only Hideyoshi's memory of [[spoiler: Keiji]] shielding him to save his life prevented Hideoyshi from going through with the kill.
* Horribly subverted in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' when Hinata jumps to Naruto's defense when he was pinned down by Pain (and [[CanNotSpitItOut finally]] confessing her love for him). She tries rushing at Pain, only to be casually knocked aside by Pain's [[GravityMaster Shinra Tensei]] and (seemingly) killed. Naruto crosses the DespairEventHorizon almost immediately afterwards.
* Played with in the movie adaptation of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs''. Vita tries to do this to protect Hayate from Nanoha and Fate when she and the rest of the Wolkenritter run into them visiting Hayate. However, Nanoha and Fate weren't threatening Hayate and she scolds Vita for acting rudely to her guests.
* Kobayashi does this for Iruru when she's attacked by Cremene in ''Manga/MIssKobayashisDragonMaid''. Despite the rule that [[AlienNonInterferenceClause dragons are not supposed to harm people on Earth]], Cremene just swats her aside. It does solidify Iruru's HeelFaceTurn though, leading her to do the same thing for Kobayashi immediately after. It still doesn't make Cremene hesitate though. Instead, his thanking the gods for his good luck ends up summoning a very angry Tohru, who proceeds to beat him within an inch of his life for [[BerserkButton hurting Kobayashi]].
* In ''Anime/IzettaTheLastWitch'' the titular character Izetta was cornered by an angry mob and attempted to lynch her when she was a child because they accused her of causing a fire. Izetta's ChildhoodFriend Princess Finé stood between her and the angry mob. Even when the accidentally injured Finé, she stood her ground and protected Izetta, and she eventually forced the angry mob to stand down.



* In ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' story ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'' Harbinger fights four or more Darkseid's raiders to protect Kara. Batman deduces she didn't go down without a fight.



* ''[[Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro The Castle of Cagliostro]]'': [[WomanInWhite Princess]] [[MessianicArchetype Clarisse]] does this twice for Lupin, at different points during the film.
** The first happens near the midpoint, after Lupin's been shot and left critically wounded by Jordo. Not only does she [[DivingSave prevent Lupin from falling to his death]], she shields him with her own body and tells Cagliostro that if he intended to kill Lupin, he'd have to kill her too. Cagliostro respnds by [[spoiler: having Jordo open fire around them... with each shot narrowly missing by inches]]. Clarisse doesn't budge, despite fearing for both their lives.
** At the film's climax, Cagliostro prepares to fire at Lupin as he hangs from a ledge of the castle's clock tower. Clarisse literally leaps to Lupin's rescue, [[HeroicSacrifice by jumping from the tower]] and [[TakingYouWithMe attempting to take Cagliostro with her]]; complete with a BigNo.

* In ''[[{{Nightside}} Just Another Judgement Day]]'' John Taylor does this in front of [[ImplacableMan The Walking Man]]. The latter tries to "go through" and loses his powers for trying to kill defenseless and innocent (in this case) human.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'': In the backstory, [[spoiler:Zelda moves to shield a nearly-dead Link from an incoming Guardian. It's this act of selflessness that finally awakens her divine powers, obliterating the entire troop of Guardians chasing them and saving both their lives.]]
