* In a rather odd variation, odder for being in one of the [[{{Gorn}} bloodiest]] and [[MindScrew mindscrewy]] {{Seinen}} out there, Ran and Ichise ''Anime/{{Texhnolyze}}'' are this from each other. Ran, resident MysteriousWaif, is the more traditional version, distant and mysterious, appearing to guide or help Ichise out suddenly at pivotal and critical moments, before fading away into the background, remaining almost anonymous until at least halfway through the anime. Ichise, on the other hand, is [[TheStoic dark and quiet]] {{Determinator}} who tends to show up mysteriously at the right moments through more sheer luck than anything else (while all of Ran's appearances are intentional, as far as we know).

* ''Manga/HoneyHoneyNoSutekiNaBouken'' has Phoenix, a GentlemanThief with a DominoMask not dissimliar to Tuxedo Kamen -- but much earlier; he shows up to help Honey in the nick of time during her wacky adventures, [[{{Tsundere}} not that she always wants to help.]]

* ''Far'' from romantic, and the series is heavily {{Seinen}}, but the Skull Knight in ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' is the reason that Guts decided to go back to the Band of the Hawks after leaving Griffith, and [[spoiler: is the only reason that Guts and Casca make it out of the Eclipse and the Band of the Hawks arc alive]].

* ''SailorNothing'' subverts this. In the backstory and beginning, Magnificent Kamen would show up to help the heroine when she's fighting monsters she can't handle herself, but he's a scheming bastard who has no qualms about killing civilians and even ex-Sailors who have seen too much or [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outlived their usefulness]], and towards the end [[spoiler:actually turns out to be one of the same kind of monsters the heroine has been fighting.]]

* Haku in ''Anime/SpiritedAway'' certainly counts. He helped Chihiro several times throughout the course of the movie, remarking that despite not remembering anything else about his past, he remembers her. It is later revealed that [[spoiler: when Chihiro was a child, she fell into his river and he had rescued her.]]

* In the three-part premiere of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', Superman initially saved people and flew away without an explanation, becoming known as a mysterious "angel" until (like the ''The Man Of Steel'' example above) he had to save a plane in full public view. Martha Kent convinced him that he ought to go public rather than try to hide, lest people think that he was anything like [[Franchise/{{Batman}} "that nut in Gotham City"]].

** The original Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} was this for a while. Since she was not supposed to reveal her existence to the world until her hero training was concluded, she secretly patrolled the small town of Midvale at night, trying not to get caught while she stopped crimes and saved people. Midvale locals rumored that they were protected by a "guardian angel".
** In the original ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'' story, Kara is not supposed to reveal her existence to the world until her hero training is done, so she decides to patrol Midvale secretly at night, trying not to get caught while she stops crimes and saves people.

--->'''Supergirl:''' Maybe I can still do super-deeds for worthy people without being seen, like a sort of guardian angel!"
