* ''Franchise/DieHard''
** ''Film/DieHard'' John [=McClane=] ''has'' been a police officer, but he's never sent into the situations he gets into. He's just in the wrong place at the wrong time... and then again in ''DieHard2''.
** '''Film/DieHardWithAVengeance'': [=McClane=] himself is not a bystander this time - he's a target. It's Creator/SamuelLJackson's Zeus who's the Heroic Bystander.
** ''Film/LiveFreeOrDieHard'' has the meek computer hacker Matt Farrell, who stands up and shoots a mook, twice!

It doesn't have to be a life that is saved. A Heroic Bystander can also defend a [[CharacterWitness person's reputation]], distract a villain with a DefiantStoneThrow or [[GoodSamaritan help someone out who needs help]], when no one else is doing so.

* In the ''Series/{{Supergirl}}'' episode "Worlds Finest", the people of National City are still reeling from Supergirl's actions under the influence of red kryptonite and have lost faith in her. However, during the climactic showdown between Supergirl (with the assistance of [[Series/TheFlash2014 the Flash]]) and the evil duo of [[ShockAndAwe Livewire]] and [[MakeMeWannaShout Silver Banshee]], Supergirl prevents Livewire from shooting down a helicopter (which would've crashed down onto a crowd of innocents) by putting herself in the path of the blast. Seeing this, the people in the park rally around the Supergirl and prevent the villains from harming their heroine. Livewire and Silver Banshee are stopped by firefighters, who hose them down with water, shorting out Livewire and, by extension, Silver Banshee. Furthermore, thanks to Barry's experience with retrofitting the Iron Heights prison in his own world to contain metahumans, National City's prison is likewise retrofitted to be able to contain individuals with superpowers, allowing them to be handed over to the justice system.

* Civilians in ''Videogame/{{AssassinsCreed}}'' will occasionally grabs guards' arms and grapple with them, taking a little heat off the player and giving them a chance to dispatch the guard without resistance. Maybe this could be a reason so many Assassins wear the distinctive uniform: the people know who the good guys are when there's a sword fight in the street.
