In some cases, there are [[JustifiedTrope sound reasons]] for this attitude. Perhaps the main hero/villain is {{the only one}} who can defeat the main enemy, and doesn't want anybody else on his side to get injured or killed in a [[CurbStompBattle hopeless attempt]]. Alternatively, there might be some complication that the hero/villain's allies don't know about, and they'd just [[SpannerInTheWorks mess things up]] if they tried to help.

* In ''The Amazing ComicBook/SpiderMan'' #77, the [[Comicbook/FantasticFour Human Torch]] shows up while Spider-Man is battling the Lizard. Spidey tries to tell the Torch to back off and leave things to him; the Torch thinks that he's just being a stupid glory-hound and insists on helping. In fact, Spidey is trying to keep control of the situation to make sure the Lizard doesn't get hurt and/or revealed to be Dr. Connors.

** Double subverted in the climax of ''Film/TheLastJedi'': when [[spoiler:Luke Skywalker]] appears, alone and on foot, to challenge the First Order's forces, Kylo Ren orders ''everyone'' to open fire. It's only when his enemy [[NoSell emerges unscathed]] from the devastation that Kylo takes to the field in person.

* Arp Arslan, second Seljuk sultan, used this trope when [[ISurrenderSuckers a man tried to stab him to death during a surrender]] and ordered his bodyguards not to interfere. Arp Arslan lived just long enough to proclaim to his successor that this trope is a ''really stupid idea''.

Saying this is forbidden by rule [[EvilOverlordListCellblockA 117]] on the EvilOverlordList, and performing the action commonly associated with it is prohibited by rule 39. Villains who wish their EvilPlan to succeed are well advised to follow both rules until ''and'' unless they have a clear path and too few RedShirts remain to mount a counter.

* ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'': The titular Winter Soldier has a bunch of guys with machine guns backing him up when he goes after Cap, Black Widow and Falcon. After Nat shoots him, though, he tells his team to handle Steve while he ''personally'' deals with her. (The command's in Russian and unsubtitled, but apparently [[LostInTranslation the translation isn't good]]--he says "I have her," using a verb that implies he has ''physical hold'' of her. And this, children, is why you don't translate idioms literally.)

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFlightOfDragons'' has a heroic variant. When the group prepares to confront the dragons, [[KnightInShiningArmor Sir Orrin]] states: "Let me take [[TheDragon Bryagh]]." This is completely ignored when Bryagh actually arrives, and everyone desperately attacks him with everything they have; but Sir Orrin is the only one who stands a chance anyway.
