* In ''Disney/{{Moana}}'', [[spoiler: after Moana and Maui's first attempt at returning the Heart and saving the world ends in failure and Maui leaving her, Moana is left completely discouraged and alone, and she loses all resolve in her mission and gives the Heart back to the ocean, telling it to choose someone else to return the Heart. Then the ghost of her Grandmother Tala appears and tells Moana that, if she wants or needs to, Moana can go back home and the ocean will choose someone else to return the Heart. However, a further pep talk from Tala, a visit from the spirits of her ancestors, and Moana's own love for the ocean and desire to save her people encourage her to press on and try again. This time, she (and Maui who returns) is successful in returning the heart.]]

Then the ghost of her Grandmother Tala appears and tells Moana that, that if she wants or needs to, is ready to go home "I will be with you". This is an interesting variation of the trope in that the scene plays out quietly with a genuine offer instead of a temptation. Gramma Tala is there to provide loving support to insure that Moana can go back home and the ocean will choose someone else is doing what she truly wants. This leads to return the Heart. However, a further pep talk from Tala, a visit from the spirits of her ancestors, and Moana's own love for the ocean and desire to save her people all combining to encourage her to press on and try again.again.. This time, she (and Maui who returns) is successful in returning the heart.]]

* In Creator/PeterSBeagle's ''Literature/TheLastUnicorn'', Amalthea (the unicorn transformed into a young woman) tries to back out just before the final battle. Her lover, Prince Lir, is [[GenreSavvy an experienced hero]] and insists that it can't end this way -- even though if she stayed human they could marry and be happy together. The same event could also be considered a test for ''him''.

* In ''Film/{{Cyborg}}'', Gibson gives in and hangs up his arsenal to settle down with a family he's helped escape from the hell of a post-apocalyptic city (seen in flashback). As for how that turned out for him... well, lets just say there's a reason he's already hunting the villain when Pearl Prophet runs into him...

* [[Manga/TriGun Vash the Stampede]] winds up in a lengthy TenMinuteRetirement that's basically flunking this with very good reason: 1) the pain is just too much, 2) his evil brother put one over on him again in such a way that he has to consider himself a public menace, and 3) he screwed up and wrecked another damn city; the human race are ''clearly'' better off without him putting his foot in it.

* In ''Taran Wanderer'', the fourth book of the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'', Taran is on a quest to discover who his parents were (and in so doing, who he himself is). Early in the journey he visits his friend King Smoit, who offers to pre-empt the quest by adopting Taran and making him his son and heir. This is something of a subversion of the trope, because King Smoit has only the best of intentions -- he's very fond of Taran and would be proud to call him his son.
