* Aang of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' feels this heavily at the beginning of Season 3, after the fall of Ba Sing Se. Somewhat justified, in that his initial RefusalOfTheCall meant he wasn't around to stop the war 100 years ago when it began (and he wasn't there when his people, the Air Nomads, were wiped out in a genocidal first strike by the Fire Nation). This time, he was ''there'' at Ba Sing Se and still couldn't save the city from begin conquered.

** In fact, the same could be said for The Sentry's inspiration, Franchise/Superman himself. Despite his vast powers, he is not a god. He is still someone with his own life yet is burdened by the fact that he cannot always be there for people that need him and having his supersenses means he knows when so many people are in trouble.

*** As listed in film, a very poignant and Tearjerking example was the inability to save Pa Kent.

* In the ''Series/FamilyMatters'' episode "I Should Have DOne Something", Carl is depressed because it's the one-year anniversary of an incident where he responded to a hostage situation at a convenience store that led to an innocent man getting shot and killed, and he feels guilty because he believes that things might have went differently had he done something to save the man.

-->'''Harriette:''' Listen to me, Carl, that was a year ago. It was ''not'' your fault.
-->'''Carl:''' I know that here. ''(points to his head)'' But the problem is...I'm not sure I know that ''here''. ''(points to his heart)''

* Mr. Incredible feels like this near the end of ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' for an atypical reason - he says that he's "not strong enough", but means [[spoiler: that he's not ''emotionally'' strong enough to face the idea that his wife and children could get killed in action, as he'd thought them dead when Syndrome shot their plane down just hours before]].

* This is one of the many issues of [[FallenHero Taiga]] [[JerkassWoobie Hanaya]] in ''Series/KamenRiderExAid''. He failed to save a patient at [[ApocalypseHow Zero Day]] and has been always holding onto this failure from that day onwards. While it helped him TakeALevelInBadass and generally keeps him going, it also makes him just a mess of self-loathing under prickly exterior. [[spoiler: This eventually leads to him being gravely injured in a fight against [[ArchEnemy Graphite]]. He scolds himself for failing to beat him (again) and apologizes to [[MoralityPet Nico]] for [[SorryThatImDying not being able]] to take care of her any further.]]
