* When [[ComicBook/RobinSeries Tim Drake]] first approached ComicBook/{{Batman}} and ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} about Bats requiring a partner to balance out his destructive tendencies in the wake of Jason Todd's death he had no intention or desire to put on the Robin suit himself and was planning on returning to his civilian life after convincing Bruce and Dick to reconcile. It was only when a desperate Alfred sent him to rescue Batman and Nightwing from the collapsed building Two-Face had trapped them in and sent him out in some of Jason's old Robin gear for protection that the idea of becoming Robin himself formulated for him.

** [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in the first ''Film/SpiderMan1'' film: Green Goblin sets a building on fire to draw in Spider-Man, then disguises himself as an old lady to get Spidey to rescue him. He's smart enough to know that a hero can't deny an old lady in danger.
** This trope is inverted in [[Film/SpiderMan2 the second film]]. Peter (after losing his powers) rushes to the scene of a burning apartment building, and rescues a small girl (almost losing his life in the process). He then discovers that there were more people on an upper floor that perished due to the fire. He doesn't regain his powers for a few scenes afterwards.

* Dima's first big heroic deed in ''Black Lightning'' (''Chernaya Molniya'') is to rescue a kid from a burning building. (Since his superpower is possession of a flying car, this involves literally driving into an upper floor of the building.) Like much else in ''Black Lightning'' it's handled exactly as if it were in a Spider-Man movie, down to the kid being returned to the terrified mother and a swell of word-of-mouth accounts about the mysterious hooded young hero in the flying black Soviet-era GAZ Volga.

Although the first paragraph of this trope description refers to a burning building, it could easily be any other sort of natural disaster or accident. At this point in the story, though, there will not be any archvillains yet. In fact, it's conspicuous in deconstructive settings if it ''is'' a burning building; the magnitude of the primary hazards of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conflagration conflagration]], namely smoke inhalation and heat, are generally underplayed in media.

* In ''Manga/DeathNote'', a skeptical Light Yagami tests the titular notebook on a criminal holding the children in a nursery school hostage. When the criminal drops dead, and the children are freed, Light is shocked. He later tests the note for a second time on a thug harassing a woman outside a shop. Of course, after this, Light ditches the heroics and starts systematically killing criminals, becoming the VillainProtagonist Kira.
