* When Rogue first joined the Comicbook/{{X-Men}}, Wolverine was bitterly furious about it. However, after she and he [[FireForgedFriends went up against some enemies]], and she took an attack meant for him and Mariko and was dying, he forced her to absorb his own HealingFactor -- over her objections, as she pointed out he was injured, too.

** Similarly, this is one of Takiko Okuda's biggest character traits in FushigiYuugiGenbuKaiden -- and one of the reasons why she earns the respect of her Seishi. [[spoiler: But it's also a deconstruction, since Takiko has a ''serious'' case of HeroicselfDeprecation and one of the "signs" is putting others before herself more than she should... so ultimately, Takiko's lack of self-worth is one of the reasons why she's devoured from the inside by Genbu itself.]]
