*** ComicBook/MilesMorales has this happen to him in the first issue of his 2016 series. The Avengers are battling the demonic Blackheart in the city, and as Miles makes his way to join the fight, an explosion blows an empty car and two school buses full of children into the air. Miles prevents them from crashing onto the street with his webs, and as he starts to get the children out, a group of bystanders tell him to let them take care of helping the children out of the buses so Spidey can go join the fight.

* In ''The Brave Lion and the Foolish Rabbit''[[note]] Part of an anthology of Jataka stories by Rafe Martin[[/note]], the lion calms down a horde of terrified animals despite having nothing to do with their problem.
-->''There, below him, he saw all the animals running, running, running madly as if pursued by some terrible danger. Looking carefully, he saw [[ItMakesSenseInContext nothing at all]] threatening them. But he did see that they were running straight toward the edge of a cliff. And he saw that if no one stopped them, they would fall over the edge of that cliff and die.''
-->''"Someone should help those animals," he said quietly to himself, rising to his feet.''
-->''"Why, I'll help them," he decided.''



* In ''Literature/IOnlyWantedToHelp'', Cole Nichols and his father intervene when they see three men attempting to rape a teenage girl.
* ''Literture/JourneyToChaos'': During the fourth book, ''Literature/TranscendingLimitations'', Basilard is on his way to his guild's headquarters when he is ambushed by assassins. His neighbors step up to save him and his daughter.



* Subverted in ''Literature/RainbowSix''; during a hostage situation one of the hostages distracts one of the terrorists, seemingly giving the Rainbow sniper an opening to headshot the terrorist. Later on, the sniper admits in actuality the hostage's action didn't make a difference one way or another, since as a professionally-trained sniper he already had a good shot at that point, but goes to congratulate the hostage anyway because what he did still took major balls.

** The old German gentleman in ''Film/TheAvengers2012''. He's just a face in the crowd... but he stands up to a homicidal god, because the alternative is to live in a world where everybody knelt.

* When a man walked into an elementary school near Atlanta with an AK47 and 500 rounds of ammo, staff member Antoinette Tuff averted disaster by keeping him in the room with her, empathizing with him, telling him she loved him even if no one else did, and eventually getting him to surrender to police.
