* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', after Karyl has a prolonged period of non-communication and complete self-loathing, he's brought back by combination of Rob pushing him to start acting again, Melodía lending him a shoulder to cry on and Karyl himself finally opening to other people. We learn that he's back when provides Jaume's side with TheCavalry in form of ''Triceratopses''.

* Wrestling/ShawnMichaels has had a few but perhaps the greatest was after his one-off return (after four years of being laid up with a broken back) to fight Wrestling/TripleH at ''Wrestling/{{SummerSlam}}'' (supposed to be a one-time comeback), he's mangled so badly as to be confined to a wheelchair. But after giving an uncharacteristically stoic promo, warning the "Don't hunt... what you can't kill." To prove his point, he started to struggle to stand up out of his wheelchair, trying and failing a few times. Then, he shrugs, easily stands up, kicks over the chair, and starts dancing. A few weeks later, in his first match in three months (and second in the last four and a half years), he beat Wrestling/{{Kane}}, Wrestling/RobVanDam, Wrestling/BookerT, ChrisJericho, and, in the big finish, Wrestling/TripleH himself in the first ever Elimination Chamber to win the World Heavyweight title.

** A much more subdued example: as you progress through the final world, you find that [[spoiler: Ansem the Wise, that is, the real Ansem]] has come there to set things right that [[spoiler: he himself]] put wrong in the first place instead of simply sitting in wait to hope things fix themselves. [[spoiler: A HeroicSacrifice ensues after forgiving himself for his anger and he damages Kingdom Hearts enough to prevent Xemnas's plan from coming to fruition.]]

* ''Comicbook/{{Batgirl}}'': Barbara Gordon gave up on being Batgirl after the Joker shot her and left her with waist-down paralysis. After several years in comic time (twenty-three years in real time), Barbara regained the use of her legs and became Batgirl again in ''Comicbook/{{Batgirl 2011}}''.

* The character doesn't even have to be remotely heroic for this trope to occur. An interesting case of a hero's return causing a villain's return occurs in any number of the times the Batman has "died", causing the Joker to go temporarily sane or catatonic. Which always reverses itself upon Batman having his own He's Back moment.



* {{Superman}} abandons humanity for ten years in ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'' because he feels that society has become morally degraded beyond repair. When he finally makes a comeback, the first thing he does is rescue a cablecar full of civilians from warring gangs of vigilantes. The narrator puts the scene best:
-->And suddenly, there was a wind. No, not a wind. A blur of motion, bending the steel of their weapons and changing the very course of the mighty river below. Even before the bystanders freed themselves from the cablecar, they knew. We all did. We knew...and remembered.
-->'''Bystander:''' [[MythologyGag Look! Up in the sky!]]

** ''Film/SupermanIII'' also does this when Superman [[spoiler: is exposed to synthetic kryptonite, causing him to make a FaceHeelTurn. The krytponite eventually splits him into Clark Kent and the evil Superman in a junkyard. After a long battle, Clark eventually triumphs and the evil Superman disappears. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Clark then rips open his shirt to reveal iconic "S" shield and once again dons the Superman costume, his first order of business to undo the damage his evil self had caused, as the theme music thunders to life.]]]] This is probably the only truly great moment in a movie that is mediocre at best.
