If the act of making the call is an adventure unto itself, that's BringHelpBack. Compare/contrast with the last resort version EnemyMine, the more metaphysical CombinedEnergyAttack, and the mandatory version BindingAncientTreaty and HeroSecretService. For when the party that is called could beat the living shit out of either side, see AwakeningTheSleepingGiant. When you are ''truly'' desperate, you SummonABiggerFish. For drama related to the physical act of calling for help, see EpicHail. May lead to ClimacticBattleResurrection. BigDamnHeroes and GunshipRescue are smaller versions of this trope. CrowdedCastShot is similar, but played for laughs and (usually) not as urgent.

* Finally happens at the very end of ''Webcomic/ErrantStory'', when the elves figure out that they are utterly screwed and ask Tsuiraku for help. Of course, what really matters isn't that they get the Tsuirakuan battlemages, but rather, that they get the FiveManBand (Meji, Ellis, Jon, Sarine and Sara), whom they did not actually ask for.

** In some cases, it's actually standard procedure. Some Forge Worlds are used as resupply stops by other Imperial forces, so the Adeptus Mechanicus figure they might as well cut defense funding to the minimum to make more room for workers since there'll always be a fleet or two in orbit. Turns against them in [[Literature/CiaphasCain The Greater Good]], where a difficult start to negotiations ends when Cain points out that if the Mechanicus doesn't want the Guard's help against the Tyranids on the Guard's terms, there's probably another system around that could use it.

* In 1992, Wrestling/ GenichiroTenryu departed from Wrestling/AllJapanProWrestling to become the spokesman of Megane Super, an eye glasses company. Megane Super executive Hachiro Tanaka had interest in running a pro wrestling promotion however and so Tenryu became one of the faces of the "Super World Of Sports", which in turn lead to Yoshiaki Yatsu, Ashura Hara, Shunji Takano, The Great Kabuki, Hiromichi Fuyuki, Tatsumi "Koki" Kitahara, Masao Orihara, Isao Takagi and even referee Hiroyuki Unno to also depart from All Japan to join Tenryu in the new promotion. Giant Baba felt betrayed and proclaimed he would never allow Tenryu to return to All Japan, pushing Wrestling/MitsuharuMisawa in his place and leading Tenryu to start his own promotion, WAR, when Megane Super pulled the plug on SWS. After Giant Baba died his wife demoted Misawa, who in turn also left All Japan and took 92% of the native roster with him to form Wrestling/ProWrestlingNOAH in 2000, whom All Japan's distributor, NTV, decided to broadcast instead of All Japan while using its shares in AJPW to keep it from shopping for another television network spot. The situation became so dire Mokoto Baba called on Tenryu, who closed down WAR and took the roster back to All Japan. WAR was the ''first'' promotion in the history of Japanese pro wrestling that shutdown for a such a practical reason, rather than monetary failure, political in fighting, mismanagement or the like.

** Happens hourly in {{Warhammer40000}}, across all media, usually with the Space Marines playing Rohan. The typical version of this is for the flavor-of-the-month faction to come in and save the day. When done well, it can be awesome. When done badly, such as an infamous section of the 5e Grey Knights codex when the Grey Knights answer the call and proceed to wipe out the Sisters of Battle who held the line in order to use their blood as holy armor lubricant, it can be a real stinker.
