* While the standing policy of [[Series/MissionImpossible the IMF]] is "Should you or any member of your I.M. Force get caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions", the way it worked out in practice was "Should you or any member of your I.M. Force get caught, the rest of the team will move Heaven and Earth to get you back before the Secretary finds out about it."

* ''Series/SpaceAboveAndBeyond'': {{Inverted}} (albeit under protest from [[AFatherToHisMen Commodore Ross]]) in "Sugar Dirt". A landing to capture a strategic airstrip goes south because the Chigs suckered the UN high command, but the Navy realizes that in order to pull this off the Chigs withdrew forces from an even ''more'' strategic target, which is now open to attack. But there isn't time to retrieve the troops already on the ground so the ships are forced to abandon 25,000 troops, including our protagonists in the 58th, for two months until they've captured the new target and can return to retrieve them... by which point the 58th have nearly starved to death and only 2,000 survivors remain.
-->'''Ross:''' As a commander, I feel no obligation to explain my actions. But as a ''man'', I have never been more ashamed of myself, or [[SoProudOfYou more proud of you]].

** Becomes an important point in "Cor-Ai" when Teal'c is put on trial for killing a crippled man while he was in the service of Apophis. Daniel finds out that the villagers escape through hidden tunnels when the Goa'uld come but they won't leave anyone behind. Part of the way they exonerate Teal'c is by showing that he did what he did to save the multitude of the villagers so they could escape without being slowed down.

** Some of the villains start to get GenreSavvy about this. One minor villain on Earth chews out his men for being stupid enough to capture Daniel Jackson, since he knows that by doing so they've just mobilized the entire SGC against themselves, when they really should have been trying to stay unnoticed as much as possible.

* Averted like ''hell'' in every staircase sequence in ''SaintSeiya'' -- if two or more of Athena's Saints arrive at the battleground with a new opponent, one of them will ''insist'' on [[TheRestShallPass staying behind to fight, just so the other can press onwards]] to save the [[BarrierMaiden goddess]]. And then, if the first Saint's [[BattleAura Cosmo]] fades, the other(s) will stop, look back and think about how their friend has just possibly died, and then continue their climb instead of going back to help. Then again, the Saints' utmost priority is to [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl protect Athena]], even at the cost of their own lives, so they earnestly believe that continuing the mission is far more important -- even if they have to leave ''everybody'' behind.
