* ComicBook/TransformersWingsOfHonor: Red Alert, Ultra Magnus and a bunch of other Autobots take on Devastator in a flashback (which is also a deleted scene from the movie). They blow the combiner apart, and then the Constructicons continue fighting, forcing the bots back. Red Alert is shot in the back and tells the others to continue. The Bots leave him, and the Cons march on past him as he expires.

* [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. Towards the climax of the [[SchoolFestival MahoraFest arc]], Negi is running along with Yue, who urges him to go on ahead without her, not necessarily because she's hurt, but because her inability to use magic or be useful in this particular scenario doesn't really help Negi in any way. Negi refuses to leave her behind, not out of any sort of heroic deed, but because he's not sure if defeating [[ArcVillain Chao Lingshen]] is the right thing to do and wants to discuss it with her before he leaves to fight her. He does leave her behind, only after having said discussion with her.

* A variation in the Classic ''{{Traveller}}'' adventure ''Rescue on Galatea'' by FASA. During a rescue mission in enemy territory an {{NPC}} is wounded. The {{PC}}s hear a shot: when they arrive they find the {{NPC}} dead, killed by another {{NPC}} named Freeman. Freeman explains that he had to shoot the wounded {{NPC}} because he would have just slowed them down, or worse been forced to tell about the team's mission if captured.

* [[spoiler: Main character Seiya]] attempts to pull this in ''SaintSeiya'' when he's under the effects of a poison-based technique and Shun can't fight his own EvilCounterpart properly, since one of his chains is wrapped around [[spoiler: Seiya]]'s arm to keep him from falling off a cliff. [[spoiler: Seiya]] mentions this trope right before he uses his free hand to cut off the already-damaged chain and willingly throw himself off, which sends Shun into an UnstoppableRage against his enemy. [[spoiler: Luckily, Seiya lives to tell. Barely, but he does.]]

* In the ''WeissKreuz Dramatic Precious'' DramaCD, [[TheHandler Birman]] is captured and subjected to MutilationInterrogation by [[ThePsychoRangers La Mort]]. Weiss is ordered to kill her before she cracks and tells them everything she knows; when they protest, Manx reminds them that they're [[HitmanWithAHeart killers,]] not rescuers. When they find her alive, they decide to rescue her anyway, and she asks Aya for the gun he carries as a backup weapon, saying grimly that she's still got one finger to pull a trigger with. Aya gives it to her, [[HopeSpot apparently thinking she wanted to help cover their escape]], but she explains the trope and shoots herself instead.

* Mountain climbers in the so called 'Death Zone' have the choice of abandoning companions who can't climb under their own power or sitting down beside them to die too. the 1953 American expedition on K2, the second highest mountain in the world, tried to carry down a stricken member, Art Gilkey. After a slip and mass fall might have killed almost all the climbers Gilkey's stretcher was secured to the mountainside while his teammates set up tents. While they were working the men heard Gilkey calling what they assumed to be encouragement and shouted back reassurances but when two men went to fetch Gilkey they found an avalanche had scoured the mountainside clean where he'd been left. It is not impossible that Gilkey's shouts were a deliberate and successful effort to call down the avalanche upon himself. The rest of the expedition, unburdened by Gilkey, made it down safely.
