* ''[[FanFic/IntheShadowofGods In the Shadow of Gods]]'': Chief's attitude towards Cortana, which puzzles Shepard and her companions, since Cortana is an AI and AIs are regarded with fear and suspicion in the Franchise/MassEffect universe.

Eleya makes plans to evacuate whomever she can in the shuttles, but they can only get about 150 crew of over a thousand out that way. She prioritizes cadets, stable wounded and medical staff, and any pregnant females; everyone else draws lots. [[spoiler:Turns out not to be necessary when TheCavalry arrives.]] ** [[spoiler:Two Vaadwaur ships are damaged during the final fight scene and prepare to go on a suicide run to cover the escape, but Overseer Harn refuses to leave them behind. Eleya gets them to lower their aft shields so she can beam the crews off.]]

* {{Discussed}} in ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' after Mal first shoves a man off their hovercraft who was trying to hitch a ride to escape a Reaver attack, then {{Mercy Kill}}s him before the Reavers can have their way with him. Zoe gives him a WhatTheHellHero for the former as ''Serenity'' is heading skyward, which Mal rebuffs with, the Mule couldn't fly with the extra weight, none of his crew are expendable, and they plain couldn't afford to dump the cargo either. -->'''Zoe:''' Sir, I don't disagree on any particular point. It's just ... [[WarWasBeginning in the time of war]], we would never have left a man stranded.\\

* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' had at least two episodes explicitly dealing with this: "War Stories" (where Zoe and the crew rescue Wash and Mal from Niska) and "The Message" (where Mal and Zoe are shown in flashbacks saving Tracey's life). ** In the Big Damn Movie, this is brought up in a WhatTheHellHero moment after Mal kicks a local off the mule when he tries to hitch a ride with them and escape the Reavers. Zoe mentions that in the war they'd never leave a man behind, and Mal replies, "Maybe that's why we lost." *** Parodied later on: ---> '''Mal''': Zoe, the ship is yours. If I'm not back in one hour, you take this ship and you come and you rescue me! ---> '''Zoe''': [[SarcasticDevotee And risk my ship?]] ** Also, in the episode "Safe", when Simon asks Mal why he went back for him and River, ---> '''Mal''': [[TrueCompanions "You're on my crew."]] ---> '''Simon''': "Yeah, but you don't even like me." ---> '''Mal''': "You're '''on my crew'''. Why are we still talking about this?"

* Only two people involved in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'': Steve has just pulled his childhood friend Bucky out of a Hydra lab, and they're attempting to escape as the building self-destructs. Bucky crosses an impossible-to-jump pit of fire on an improvised bridge which falls in behind him. Steve tells him to get out; Bucky yells back "No, not without you!" Of course, since it's Steve, he makes the jump.

* This gets averted in the first ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'' movie, ''Big Trouble in Nekonron'', when Ranma's party [[DwindlingParty fragments a little bit more]] in every miniboss encounter, as members will [[TheRestShallPass stay behind to hold off their own tailor-made opponents]].

* The villain reaction is used in Robert Asprin's ''[[MythAdventures M.Y.T.H. Inc. In Action]]''. Guido and Nunzio, two Mob bodyguards, join the Army and are not impressed with the training or equipment. During target practice, Guido puts three crossbow bolts into a dummy's shoulder, and the drill sergeant asks, "If you can shoot that well, why not shoot him in the head?!" Guido, forgetting he's not in the Mob anymore, replies, "ANY idiot can kill somebody, but it takes SKILL to leave 'em in a condition where they can still give information, OR pay protection, OR..." Nunzio tries to avert disaster by explaining that what he MEANT was that wounding an opponent takes three men out of the action, since two have to carry the wounded one.
